New travel blog and retreat update!

Hello friends! If you read my last post I was feeling pretty in the dumps last week. This week is totally different. Maybe it was hormonal? I don’t really know but I’m moving on and getting excited about my future travels.

Is it Mercury Retrograde or a deeper problem?

Trigger Warning: Body image This week I felt amazing. My energy has been through the roof and my workouts strong. I tackled my massive to-do list like nobody’s business.

My distaste for the phrase bikini body & sensational advertising

I don’t have a workout video for you today! I’m so sorry! So much going on and I’m dog-sitting for a friend. But I do have a very important topic that I want to discuss with you: The phrase “bikini body” and the sensational advertising people use to prey on women to sell products. This post ends up going into many topics so I will apologize now for any tangents it takes. Bear with me! I kind of despise the phrase “bikini body”.… Read more

NuZest: The newest plant protein to rock your world!

For those of you who follow my fitness journey or have seen me speak on nutrition know that I’m not one to blow off protein. Yes, as vegans we don’t need as much as an average omnivore is eating. Even as athletes or those wanting to build muscle do not need to eat as much as the traditional bodybuilding diet. We are talking up to 50% of calories coming from protein, which is usually in the form of animal flesh in the omnivore diet.… Read more
