Free Printable Weekly Healthy Habit Planner

Last month, Rachel Hollis (of Girl, Wash Your Face fame) came to speak to us at my work. To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of her. I like the fundamentals of her messages, but I don’t always agree that people just need to “try harder” to find success. The one part of her talk that did stick with me was that its never a bad time to start new goals. I naturally tend to be a very goal oriented person, so I feel like this is something I have always done, but I like the reminder that you don’t have to wait for a new year to work towards a better you.

The best way to achieve your goals is to have a plan that breaks down the goal into manageable steps. When I am training for a marathon, I have a coach build a calendar with 16 weeks worth of daily workouts. Going from casually running to racing 26.2 miles is only achievable when you work towards it each day.

When I’m not training for a race, it’s hard not to find myself a little lost with what I should be doing. I try to do a couple of days of strength training, a couple of days of running, some yoga, and rest each week. In order to plan out my week, and give myself little goals, I started using a weekly calendar.

Must Have Packing List for Overseas Travel

I’m in the process of packing for an almost 3 week overseas trip for work this month. I haven’t taken an overseas trip in a few years, and I’m so excited for the opportunity. We are also getting to extend the trip for a little vaca in Vietnam afterwards!

For such a long trip that includes both business work and personal travel, I’ve spent a while figuring out what to pack while keeping everything in one checked bag. I thought it would be fun to share some of my strategies and essentials for packing!

30 Things I Learned Before Turning 30

I always thought I would dread turning 30. Like thats SO old right? I feel like there is a lot of pressure on us to have certain milestones accomplished before we turn 30, and it’s considered that everything goes downhill from there.

What’s funny is that I feel like I am the happiest and most content in my life as I approach the big milestone! As I’ve gotten older, I’ve made taking care of my body a huge priority and feel better than I ever have. I also feel like I have finally learned to stand up for myself and walk away from toxic people, relationships, and situations.

Through the ups and downs, I’ve learned a few thing that I wish I could tell my 20 year old self!

What I’m Loving: October

This October is a very exciting month for me! I started the month by running the Twin Cities marathon, and then I will spend the second half of the month on an overseas trip for work. I’m a little bummed about missing my favorite weather of the year (but also not sad I won’t be stuck cleaning up the leaves in my yard– sorry mom and dad!).

Since I’ll be missing my favorite time of year, I decided to round up everything fall and cozy that I’m loving right now to share with y’all.
