My Day to Night Pamper Tricks

Beauty & Fashion / Favorites / Healthy Living / Miscellaneous / My Workouts / Personal / Travel


My lifestyle is all about living clean. My Sweet & Free Lifestyle isn’t just about feeling your best on the inside, but feeling clean on the outside is just as important to me. I’m much happier if I can feel my best on the daily.

My days are very full, but not with just one thing. On any given day you’ll find me running, then off to the store, and then off to see clients, then to barre class, and often a night out with my girls or a special date night with my “mega babe” boyfriend. Which naturally can leave me feeling… well, less than fresh. (I’m talking sticky, hair frizzy, and stinky too!)

I thought it would be fun to share with you my Day To Night Pamper Tricks! I’ve made it super easy for you with my Top 3 tried and true go-to’s when it comes to feeling my best! I carry all of these …

Benefits of Stretching

Healthy Living / Miscellaneous / My Workouts / Personal


Time to stretch it out! Watch stress, weight, and illness stay at bay simply by stretching!

Did you know that stretching is just as important as being active?! Yes, of course we know that stretching is important for pre and post workout, but stretching itself can do so much for your health!

Stretching can lead to better circulation, it lends a hand to your nervous system, it can help with better posture, give you a clearer mind & happier attitude, and stretching of course helps you break down aches and pains!

Today I challenge you to stand up right now, wherever you are, stretch sideways, forward, & slightly backwards. Even if you’re sitting at your desk in an office full of people… actually, ESPECIALLY if you’ve been sitting at your desk. Maybe bring your foot behind you up towards your seat, holding your ankle and stretching your quads. Then try folding forward to help those hip flexers that have been …

Detoxing My Way Back to My True Self

Beauty & Fashion / Favorites / Gluten-Free Me / Healthy Living / Miscellaneous / My Workouts / Personal


“Take care of your body, it’s the only place you have to live”

I’m going to let you in on a little secret… since I’ve been back from my summer in “Paradise” I have been so out of my routine and honestly not been feeling great about myself. My workouts aren’t the same, my eating habits are a little under par, and my skin… well, I’ve actually never seen my skin like this, it’s struggling, BAD. I blame the skin factor on everything else in my daily life that is out of whack, so I’m taking control over all aspects of my life and doing what I know to do to get myself back to feeling like my true self again. The good thing is, I do know how to do this for myself, after all, I coach people daily on living their best lives. Just goes to show, I’m human. Even though my career is nutrition and health coaching …

My Simple Plane Workout

 photo 4

Flying to Malawi, Africa was quite a trek. We started with a red-eye from LA to Washington DC and then had a long layover and finally hopped on a 14 hour flight to Ethiopia! Yes, 14 hours, and that was not our final destination. About 4 more hours and we finally arrived to this very special place I will get to spend  two weeks in.

I don’t know about you, but sitting for more than just a few hours I begin to ache. My hips, my lower back, my ribs begin to ache and then feel numb, thanks to old dance injuries, so I have to move and I have to stretch! I also become very restless and drive myself crazy, haha.

I always walk around or stretch when I can during layovers or when on the plane, but today called for an actual workout. A little toning never hurt anybody, right?! No way.  And you …

Workout with my iPad

Confession… I despise the gym, but I love fitness and working out. Anyone else in my shoes?

I hear you! Glad we’re in this together.

So what do I do at the gym and why do I even bother?

Truth is, I don’t hate the gym completely. Once I get myself to the gym and get my workout in, I feel great by the time I’m heading home. Sometimes it takes a lot of effort to get myself to the gym, but I have found a few tricks that get me there and make my time enjoyable. Yep, I said enjoyable.

More than half of my workouts I do outdoors or in a class, but sometimes there is no way around the gym. Plus, I have a gym membership, and once you get to know me you learn that I’m not a wasteful person, so I have to make sure I get my money’s worth out …
