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 try to do a couple of days of strength training, a couple of days of running, some yoga, and rest each week.

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!
My Sunday routine is one of the most important parts of the week. I like to ensure everything is prepared for the week ahead to reduce my day to day stress. This routine is especially important when work gets busy and when I’m in the peak of marathon training!
Saving a few minutes here and there throughout the week means getting to work earlier, being able to get home and get to my workout sooner, and getting to bed at a decent hour! Here is what I do almost every Sunday to help myself out during the week: Continue reading “Easy Sunday Routine for a Successful Week “→
