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…
"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
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 …
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.
