New Year! New You!

Yes I know we hear this year after year! What if this year we did actually stick to our resolutions and we did actually incorporate some healthy changes into our lives? For you what would that change look like? For me I really need to get back on track with my eating. To be exact I need to cut out sugar from my diet, refined sugar. I am telling you when I eat sugar I wake up feeling hungover. If you know me you know I dont drink so feeling hungover is not something that I want to feel.



I have set a few goals for myself for the year. I like to share them with others to help hold myself accountable.

1. Run another 50 miler.
2. Become fully Self Employed.
3. Practice Yoga more.
4. Run the Grand Canyon
5. Be more peaceful.

For each one of these goals to become my reality I need to create actions steps. For the running goals I have training plans. For the financial goals I have milestones I need to make in my doTERRA business before I am able to leave my day job. For the spiritual goals I need to let go of control in the areas that I am powerless. Write down your goals. Think of what steps you need to take to make these goals your reality! Reach out to me if you need help or encouragement!

If your goal is to eat healthier, become more fit or reduce your toxic load. I can help you reach your goals. If your goal is to run your first 5k, 10k, or Half Marathon I can help you reach your goals.

If you goal is to get more grounded and comfortable in your yoga practice I can help you reach that goal.

Happy New Year Everyone!

What to Pack for a Ragnar Trail Relay?

Months ago when we decided to sign up for the Ragnar Trail Relay in West Virginia I started a list on my phone of what I wanted to pack. I have been known for being a list maker. Thankfully I am not alone in my list making when more than half of my team has an Engineering background it turns out we are all pretty listy. Our one team member even set up a google doc of what to pack so that we can all edit it. I know I'm a nerd but I love being prepared and I love being organized.


I started packing over the weekend when I knew I wouldn't be wearing most of my running clothes until race day. For the Relay I will be running 3 times so I made sure to pack three complete running outfits. I found a really helpful tip online to place each outfit in a gallon ziplock bag so I wont have to be searching for everything in the middle of the night or while someone else may be sleeping. The event will be all day and all night so I needed to make sure I packed a headlamp and extra batteries. I …

No Lunch Run for Me

Yesterday I was unable to run during my lunch break. My first reaction was self pity but then I quickly had to realize my little girl and her health are far more important. My daughter has been sick on and off for a few weeks and her breathing was very labored and I knew she had to go back to the doctor. Thankfully I was able to get her an appointment that day but it meant leaving work for a few hours and missing my lunch hour. When I start a training plan I tend to get a little obsessive about sticking to as much as I can. I don't know when I became such a rule follower. I have a good friend that I get to work with each day and he came to my rescue yesterday and put me in my place and out of my pity party. Thank you. I need to remember that things are going to change and everything can not always go as planned. When I have acceptance my life is far more serene. So at the end of the day yesterday I did not get to run or even do an alternate workout like I had planned because my hu…

Healthy Body = Healthy Mind

I have been an a quest for Health & Wellness for many years now. I started thinking more about my health as I was getting closer to my 30s. I had been clean off drugs and alcohol for many years which was a huge plus, but I knew there was more that needed to be done. I quit smoking before my 28th birthday. That single action made me realize how much more I wanted to do for myself. Soon after I quit smoking, I started walking then I started running. Running was not always my passion it was very tough at first and I will admit that I did not love it right away. It took me some time to build a strong pace that I felt comfortable breathing with. I also did yoga on and off for many years and always loved that practice. When my girlfriend did her 200 Hour Yoga teacher training my practice got more intense and I was peaceful. That same friend and yoga mentor moved to Spain and my practice suffered I just did not keep up with it while she was away but I got more into running during that ti…
