Favs: January 2019

The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson. This book is one that everyone should read. Lots of useful+practical lessons anyone can apply to move your life forward. Always remember, your mindset work is never done! 

Morning Routine

Either you run the day or the day runs you.

There are a couple of things that are non-negotiable for me, sleep and routine. They set you up for success and set the tone for all areas of life. Every single morning looks almost identical for me.

My morning routine actually starts the night before, and I am not even going to tell you it is easy…but no phone for at least 30 minutes before lights out.  We are all guilty of mindless scrolling, and it’s the biggest time waster ever. I follow this into my morning. I want to be a dictator of my time, not a reactor. Plus, I want to make the most of my time and be as productive as possible.

Aldi Favs

Happy New Year! Hopefully you are back in the swing of things and getting after it!

Listed below are my much requested Aldi favs separated out into what I buy organic vs. non there. Unfortunately, it is not a one stop shop for us, but that’s ok because it’s not out of my way!

My rule of thumb is ALWAYS following the EWG dirty dozen+clean fifteen. This EWG list is a shopper’s guide to pesticides in produce. So it is a list of the twelve dirtiest which you should always buy organic when possible, and the clean fifteen is a list of the produce that are ok to buy non-organic. Aldi’s organic selection is awesome for most produce.

Easy Granola Bars

TEB loves a good bar. While, bars aren’t my personal preference, it’s important that the bars he does consume be full of nutrients+clean ingredients+real food. These fit the bill, and no, I don’t always make homemade bars.

These are SUPER easy, and you probably already have some or all of the ingredients on the list. Plus you can switch ingredients around! If you don’t like raisins, maybe add some unsweetened cherries instead.

Collagen was perfect to add for some extra protein. OX Nutrition blends better than any collagen I have EVER used, plus they source sustainably and that is important to me.

High Vibes

If you’ve been around long, you know that there is absolutely no time for bad vibes over here. Coming into a new year can always be refreshing and overwhelming at the same time. You feel me?!

So, here are some of my instant high vibe essentials to help keep you on track and give your life a boost in the right direction! 

Favs: December 2018

I am actually not currently reading a book at the moment, but rather listening to The Psychology of Winning for the second time, yes, it’s that good. If you are wondering what all I have read this year, check out this post. You know how I feel about positive input, every single day. Do it, you can change who you are and what you are by what you consume. 

Let’s talk books

Truth be told I have never been a “reader.” I only really started enjoying it in late 2017. My problem was that I never could find ones that intrigued me and that I could connect with, or that I wanted to spend my time on. I have never enjoyed reading for as long as I can remember. TEB cringes at the thought of me never wanting to read Harry Potter. Um, no thank you, no time for that. One of my goals for 2018 was to read one book each month. I am happy to report, smooth sailing so far.

I like books that are going to help me be a better person. Ones that will help me be a better wife, friend, daughter, and leader. Positive daily input matters so so much.
