So I wanted to share my new morning routine with you as well as how it’s helped me improve my focus, increase my productivity, and achieve my goals.
**Planning just isn’t the same without the perfect planner! I love this one so much that I couldn’t help but recommend it to you. If you decide to invest in one for yourself using this link, I will receive a small compensation for recommending it to you at no extra cost to you!
I was a bit late to the planner party this year, but thankfully with a little research I found one that is just perfect and that I really feel like was designed for me (more on that later)! But let’s be honest…A planner isn’t going to do anything if you don’t use it and have a bit of a strategy for doing that.

I’ve always been a pretty productive person, but the transition to motherhood helped me see even more clearly how I needed to maximize my time to get everything done effectively. So, I’ve come up with a few simple strategies for getting more done every day, and I thought I’d share them with you.
Now, of course every day isn’t perfect, and there are certainly days when I get next to nothing accomplished. But, most days, if I utilize this plan and pay attention, I’m able to accomplish everything I need and want to. Continue reading
If you’ve been following my journey on Facebook or Instagram at all, you’ve probably heard me refer to a “Challenge Group” once or twice (or multiple times)…But, I realized that if you’ve never been involved in a group or if you’re not really tied to Beachbody in any way, you probably really don’t know what that term means or what the benefits of said groups are. So, I wanted to take the time today to spill all the details on what challenge groups are and how they can be beneficial for helping you reach your health and fitness goals.
