Saturday Sweat – Accountabilibuddy

Sometimes you just gotta get your Saturday sweat on with your best fitness partner, no matter if she’s in Michigan and you are in Rhode Island – Zoom for the win! 😍

It stinks we can’t get together in person as often as we would like, because we live further away, but I take any FaceTime I can get with this girl!

She tried the new Shift Shop sampler while my winking pumpkin shirt and I crushed shoulders!

Love my accountabilibuddy!

Happy Saturday! 💕

ps, if wearing a winkin’ Pumpkin shirt makes you more inclined to get your sweat on, then by all means, wear your winkin’ Pumpkin shirt!

Feel Good Friday – You DO Have 5 Minutes

We are all busy.

We all have stressors.

We all have “stuff“.

But the healthiest, happiest and most successful people are the ones that learn to cope and manage all of that instead of letting it CONSUME them.

What works for some might not work for others.

I am forever a work in progress with coping and handling stress, but compared to how I used to “cope”, I am so very proud of how far I have come.

And I used to think I was ‘too busy’ to take five minutes to appreciate fresh air, sunshine and the peace and quiet… but it turns out making that a priority helps everything else!

Coffee helps, too 😉

Happy Friday!

 

Thursday Thoughts – Adapt

• ADAPT •

Today was my first workout since Monday. And also today I woke up at 5:44 AM; you know, by 5:44 AM I am practically finished with my workouts, normally. 😩

And while my body needed the two rest days due to being sick and fatigued, I really did not want to go THREE days without moving my body.

So since I was a little pressed for time (because we are verrrrry close to a deadline at work and I don’t want to be going in late), I chose the shortest remaining workout for this week, and I got it done!

Like everyone, I have had to learn to • A D A P T •, but truthfully… life really does become easier once you learn to adapt and •go with the flow•

 

Water Wednesday – Build Your Habit!

The truth is no, I didn’t always enjoy water and I definitely didn’t drink enough.

And yeah, it was definitely a slightly challenging habit to get into because I mean, compared to the millions of drinks out there with ‘flavor’, why would I choose water?

BUT… with an open mind, I started staying consistent and allowing my body (and mind, and spirit…) to reap and feel the benefits of being hydrated, and I won’t sit here and list the multitude of benefits, but they are plentiful!

And then it became easier… I found myself craving water. I went from never having water with me to basically always having it with me.

Not all habits come easy – and many never get easier. But you were made to do hard things – the payoff is worth it when it comes to the health and wellness of your body, mind and spirit.

Now go hydrate – start your habit! 😊

Try It Tuesday – Reusable Coffee Cups

This morning, the girl filling my coffee order was so excited to show me her own new glass cup – the same one as mine except pink!

And I didn’t hear her at first, and she had to repeat herself, but she told me MINE inspired HERS, and I mean, that felt good! It felt good to know I helped inspire someone to do something that lessens their impact on the world and helps heal it to a better place! ❤️🌎

People might roll their eyes, but this is why we SHARE – if even one person is inspired because of it, it’s worth it!

And yes, small measures absolutely do add up, and it’s up to us to make a difference!

Soul Care Sunday – Ladies Day at the Winery

Thank you to the wonderful souls who kept us company today – my own soul needed that kind of judgment-free, welcomed distraction, and I’m reminded once again that no matter how tough life gets, there are always people who care and are there and will be a source of love and laughter.

It’s always humbling to look at how many awesome people we have in our corner and to remind ourselves how blessed we are! We appreciate all of you!

💕 the best wines are the ones we drink with friends (loved this Kari!) 💕
