Thursday Thoughts

1. Happy Thursday!!! I am SO EXCITED this morning because my friend from Chicago, Sarah, is coming to hang out with me this afternoon!


2. The shoes on the left are from Forever 21 and I’ve owned them… forever. At least 8 years. They’ve been great shoes. But it was time to replace the poor things, so I got the shoes on the right from Target!

3. One of my best friends from growing up just moved back to Kansas City from San Francisco and since she’s working remotely, it was so fun to get to work side by side with her for the morning at my favorite coffee shop! Luckily she tolerates my selfies 🙂


4. Another friend from Chicago was in town for work this week and when she had some free time we went exploring! We found this adorable shop and now I really want a push pin map to mark all the places I’ve traveled to! Well, the US one… haha the world one might look a little sad.

5. I had an AMAZING call with my team last night where we shared what Beachbody coaching really means to us. These girls get me. 🙂

6. I went on a THREE mile run yesterday! I can’t remember the last time I ran 3 miles! I did have to make quick breathing stops a few times (HILLS), but I did it!

7. Yesterday was a wild one: I also went to a workout class with my Dad! One thing I love about being home is spending some extra time with my parents. Weird, I kinda like hanging out with them now 😉


8. Have a great Thursday!

Love this <3 #words #quotes #inspiration: Are you friends with your parents?

Do most of your friends all live in the same city?

Thursday Thoughts

1. Hello!! I am back in Kansas City, which means I get to go to my favorite coffee shop, The Roasterie, to do some work and job searching 🙂


2. I have a Fabletics membership (<– referral link), which normally I skip every month to avoid buying anything (not exactly rolling in the dough 😉 ), but I missed it a couple months ago. I decided to use the credit I got to get this outfit and I LOVE it! So cute. 

3. I was so surprised and overwhelmed at the amount of support I got from this Transformation Tuesday post I put on my Facebook yesterday. Just a reminder to keep sharing my story, because clearly people can relate to it, either from themselves or knowing someone who has gone through something similar.

4. One of the many things I love about Colorado is the plethora of Love Grown products. I LOVE THIS CEREAL! And no, it’s not just for children… 🙂


5. I do love being in Kansas City, but nothing can beat the breathtaking views in Colorado Springs. It’s unreal. If you can visit, DO IT! I’ve been going there since I was little and I’ll never get over it! 

6. I haven’t been drinking my Shakeology very often over the past three weeks and I can feel it. I’m more tired, which I know is due to anemia and other nutrition deficiencies. Just a lesson to me on consistency!

7. My sweet friend sent me a care package in the mail this week! I can’t remember the last time someone did this for me – totally made my week! <3


8. Have a great Thursday!

What’s your favorite cereal?

Have you ever tried Fabletics?

Thursday Thoughts

1. Hello, hello! I feel like I haven’t been especially present here lately, but it’s been a long week and I’ve just got TOO many things going on in my mind and life. I always write my best blog posts when my mind is open and I’m feeling inspired, so I’m hoping to make more of that kind of time soon!

2. We are STILL in Colorado Springs! For those of you who don’t know, I am currently living in Kansas City with my parents, but my Mom and I have been in Colorado Springs for the last two weeks while we were awaiting my niece’s birth. Now that she’s here and settled, it’s time to head back to KC this weekend. Another long trek across Kansas… feel free to follow the fun on snapchat! (kdubjd).

3. We were a little worried Molly would be upset with no longer being the only child… Turns out she absolutely loves her little sister. Except when Addie sneezes… That’s apparently too scary for this very “special” dog.

4. Over the weekend my dad and little brother came up to meet Addie and it was fun to have them out here! A lot less work got done, but I enjoyed the extra family time.

5. Many of you know I’m taking a Life Coaching course through Beautiful You Coaching Academy. Just as an FYI, I’ll be putting out a public call soon for potential pro bono clients! Something to think about… 😉

6. No but really. My opinion of anyone goes up dramatically based on their dog… Screen Shot 2016-04-14 at 7.44.00 AM

7. Every time I go to Garden of the Gods I half expect a dinosaur to come meandering over the hillside… Won’t ever get tired of this place.

8. Have a wonderful Thursday!

Lift one another up:

Have you ever been to Colorado?

Do you tend to like people more when you find out they have a dog (or cat!)?

Thursday Thoughts

1. I am going to be an Aunt today!!! My little niece is on her way!!

2. Cherry on top? Now I get to go spend the day with Molly to keep her company!


3. I had forgotten how much I love Colorado Springs until I had the chance to go to the Garden of the Gods yesterday… I could live in that park. Just find me a hammock 🙂

4. I saw this and about DIED. This is the best thing ever.


5. I’ve been doing Tone It Up workouts this week and enjoying the change of pace!

IMG_24086. Okay, I can’t think of anything else except leaving to go wait for my NIECE!!! HAVE A GREAT THURSDAY!


Do you have any nieces or nephews? 

What do your workouts look like this week?

Thursday Thoughts

1. I’ve been spending the past week and a half in Kansas City, and I really do love this place! Today, however, my mom and I are heading out to Colorado so we can be there when my NIECE IS BORN!!!! AHHH I AM SO EXCITED! Molly is going to be a big sister!

2. I can’t get over Tiny House Hunters. These houses are like a small studio and they’re trying to fit MULTIPLE PEOPLE in there. WHY? Why not just rent an apartment?? Or get a mobile home!? It blows my mind.

3. Who is thinking about their weight when they have SIX PUPPIES in their arms? #priorities


4. Just a reminder, it’s almost time for another month of accountability, but this time with a spiritual element added in! The various parts of our lives don’t exist in vacuums. To take care of your mind, body AND soul, I’ve created this new and amazing opportunity!

I truly LOVE running these groups. I love helping women find their confidence, shed unwanted pounds, realize they can do hard things and find a new, SIMPLE way of eating.

This is YOUR time. You can stop holding yourself back and you don’t have to do it alone! We’ll be here to teach, support and encourage every step of the way!

This is a small, private accountability group of 5-10 women. You can live anywhere and still join this group because it’s all online! We all commit to eating healthy and nourishing our bodies with a superfood smoothie, working out at home or at the gym, having FUN, and lifting each other up every day.

April’s group will start April 11th and we have a few spots left. We’re just missing YOU.

Click here to learn more, or send me an email at Final order date is April 3rd!

5. I went on a 2 mile run here with hills and I about DIED. I need to get some running into my life more…

6. This cutie. So glad he liked his early Birthday present.IMG_2335-1

7. 7. I love job searching at my favorite coffee shop in Kansas City, the Roasterie. I’m going to have to find somewhere close and cute while I’m in Colorado Springs! I like having the noise of people around me, but nothing else to distract myself (like other books, talking to my mom, TV, errands, etc.) from working.

8. Have a great Thursday!
