SPRING CLEAN YOUR FRIDGE

katelyn - March 6, 2018

Spring is the perfect time to purge. There is something about birds chirping and flowers  blooming that makes me want to open the windows and burn sage while dusting my baseboards. Tidy drawers and bathroom spaces make us say ‘ahhhhh”, yet we often forget one of the most important places to de-clutter, the refrigerator. Cleaning out the junk drawer is just as necessary but those …

THERMOGENIC FOODS THAT BOOST YOUR METABOLISM

katelyn - December 8, 2017

Winter is typically a time where we naturally want to hibernate. We tend to go for carbs and warmer foods because it is our bodies way of telling us know we need to stay warm during the cold months. Even though it has been a warm 75 here in Charlotte in December. It is literally in our DNA to consume more calories during this time …

SUMMERTIME FINE

katelyn - July 12, 2017

Summer is flying by and here we are half way through it already. If you feel like you have lost track of your goals it’s okay, don’t beat yourself up about it. First of all every body has a bikini body and you should feel proud of the body you have because it is unique to you. The era of the “bikini body” is over …

THE PROBLEM WITH PERFECTION

katelyn - May 22, 2017

per·fec·tion “the action or process of improving something until it is faultless or as faultless as possible.” In a society where perfectionism is rampant loving yourself is a rebellious act. Filters, photoshop, staged photos, and fake body parts flood my feeds. Yeah I just went there because it has become our societies “norm” and I believe it needs to be addressed. Hard as it is …

SPRING CLEANING: FOR THE SOUL

katelyn - April 3, 2017

We are officially two weeks into spring time and traditionally most of us are grabbing for the cleaning supplies. I am a firm believer that having a clean space equals a clean mind. I’m not saying ignore your messy closet but take this time to evaluate the dust bunnies in your mind. The things perhaps you’ve swept under the rug but in your gut know need to be …

THE IMPORTANCE OF GOOD NUTRITION

madison - January 20, 2017

Weight loss is challenging for anyone trying to drop even the smallest amount of weight. With food so readily available we have to burn thousands of calories during our 30 mins to an hour session at the gym. Working out without the results we want to see can be so discouraging.

RITUAL:RITUALS

katelyn - November 6, 2015

We all know the average adult should be getting 7-9 restful hours of sleep every night. But why do we neglect it so much? Sleep is just as important to your body as eating healthy and breathing, yet we all struggle to catch some zzz’s. (Insert bags under my eyes here.) When you’re deprived of sleep your brain can’t function optimally, effecting your cognitive abilities …

VINEGAR ELIXIR

katelyn - January 21, 2015

In elementary school I had a teacher who would drink apple cider vinegar every day because she said her grandmother swore by it, before the days of knowing any better I always thought it seemed a bit crazy.  I’ve been using acv for years and if it’s not a part of your daily routine you need to make it one.  If you’ve never drank this stuff straight up, truthfully? it might …

MEAN GREENS

katelyn - January 14, 2015

Isagenix greens is an easy way to make sure you’re getting your daily dose of greens, because really who has time to eat a pound of kale.
