You’ve seen the Instagram photos from your favorite brand, blogger or photographer and think to yourself, “Gee! Only if I had a better camera!” but the truth is that the camera you own is only a small part of the photography experience.

I’ll never forget my first megareformer workout. I had been doing barre and Pilates classes for months and when I heard about this “core-intensive” strength class I was confident that I would be able to kill it. I was so wrong.
My challenge: Stellar Bodies lunchtime workout. 50 minutes of me and this machine that surely wouldn’t be that bad. Right?
Oh, so wrong. ..View Post
For months before my Thailand trip, I was feeling overwhelmed. This constant sense of always having to be “on” that is inherent in the lives of entrepreneurs, side-hustlers and pretty much anyone who chooses to damn themselves to a life of being constantly working. I knew that when I am living my day to day life, phone time is a necessity. It’s how I write my posts, how I engage with my audience, handle business affairs and basically live. That’s when I realized that if I truly wanted a vacation for from it all, I needed to leave my phone at home…View Post

I finally made it. Can’t believe it, but I actually finished a work out program and did 12 weeks of BBG. As a serial quitter, this is a huge accomplishment. I want to be clear that I made many modifications to the online program and made this work for me. If you want to learn more about what BBG is and where to find it, I recommend you read this post. I don’t want to bury the lead, so here are answers to all of your questions including my results, if I would recommend the program, and what modifications I made…View Post
What would you do if you had all the time in the world? Read more? The harsh reality of adulthood is that we rarely get time to read leisurely and as much as we want to – it usually doesn’t happen. Audible knows this and hence the billion dollar podcast/audiobook industry was born.
I was also the victim of $14.95 monthly fee in order to check off my “read 12 books this year” resolution until I figured out how to get those books (legally) for free….View Post
