Conventional wisdom tells us that morning work outs are THE BOMB. I bet you've heard this a million times, right? It took some convincing to get me out of bed and into my sneakers every day at 5am and face 30 minutes of hard physical exercise. I LOVE sleep!
Some days, yep, I roll back under the covers for some extra rest, if that's what my body truly needs. But most days, I'm up with Jamie to tackle the morning workout, because I know that ultimately, it's wickedly good for my body and soul!
So why, exactly, are morning workouts so good for us? Turns out, there's a lot more to the early morning sweat session than you might think!
Here are a bunch of very good reasons...
Looking for a quick and easy, super nutritious lunch or snack idea? Try these tuna salad avocado boats! These concoctions are power-packed with protein and healthy fats, with an extra veggie boost! Tuna salad avocado boats are my go to snack before parties, when I want to make sure I don't over-indulge on unhealthy foods. (Never show up at a party hungry, right?!)
And an added benefit is that kids love these super nutritious snacks because, hey! Boat-shaped foods are just plain fun to eat!
TIP: Tuna salad leftovers make for amazing sandwiches the next day! Especially with some sliced dill pickle tossed in to the mix. (Please tell me I'm not the only one who loves pickles in her tuna?!)

I feel compelled to share where I am at today.
This picture. It says so much to me. I see and FEEL strength. I see and FEEL inner and outer peace. I see and FEEL self acceptance. I see and FEEL enough. I see and FEEL confidence. I see and FEEL self-love. I finally know that I am perfectly imperfectly perfect.
The woman in this picture is truly ME. I have found me. I have found a calling. A career path. My passion. I have found myself. Living a life that makes me JUMP out of bed in the morning. Living a life that sets my SOUL on fire because I am a change agent!!!!
In my own life, in our business and in the clients and coaches...
How did 2016 fly so quickly?? It was a year filled with so many lessons, so much excitement, many failures, many firsts, so many new experiences, new milestones and memories.
I love how I finally discovered this widely spread notion of choosing a word to represent the year. A word that represents our intentions the coming year; a word to live by, a theme to define our goals, our actions, and our mindset. When I think of 2016 I think of JOY. That was the word I chose last year. I tried to infuse JOY and Happiness into every interaction (well, almost every interaction; I am human after all! ).
As 2016 came to a close, I thought long and hard about what my word should be for 2017. What...
Feeling very excited and PROUD receiving this preview from Gerry Visca!!!! My mind is blown. This life. This life I literally was given the gift of living 36 years ago. I have learned that that this life and living it on your terms is all about opening yourself to saying YES. You are the curator of your legacy.
Meeting Gerry Visca and Angela Kontgen changed my path last year in April. I am PROUD to partner with both of you Gerry and Angela! Your powerful and epic commitment to inspiring and changing the world is admirable. Thank YOU for being such a strong force in my and Jamie Fitzpatrick's life. We feel proud and blessed to call you friends and mentors. 🙏👊
The many women I have...
