Q1 Checkup: Fitness Goals and Classpass Review

Rough Start to 2018 I started off 2018 by being probably the sickest I’ve ever been in a long time – I wasn’t able to leave the house for a week! And after that, just getting ramped back up while dealing with some huge changes in my personal life had me feeling very overwhelmed and out of control. Surprisingly this made me focus more on taking care of the things that I could actually do something about. I decided to focus my time on the blog, my career, and my health. If you remember last year in January I went to Whistler, Canada, fell off a T-bar lift rolled tumbled down the side of a cliff, and sprained my back. After a year of taking it easy and lots of yoga I am finally feeling strong enough to get back to my fitness goals by lifting and working out fully! Woot!…

Park City Guide: A Cozy Winter Weekend

Park City: How To Get There Hello my readers! I hope you’re not sick of all my winter vacation travel guide posts yet because I have another one for you that is a great destination for my Californians in both winter AND the warmer months. Park City is actually a super convenient location to get to because you can fly into Salt Lake City airport and drive less than an hour and you’ll be in the mountains where the resorts are. Park City: Where To Stay Kevin and I stayed at the Newpark Resort which is super conveniently located ~10 minutes away from the resort chair lift. Check out some photos from our amazing suite!

Seattle Guide: Solo Traveling for the Soul

 Solo in Seattle Last week I went to Seattle for the fourth time and it was a pretty spontaneous decision! I found a flight deal for ~$100 round trip and with my cash back from my credit card I only paid $40! What whaaaaat? So I decided – in the spirit of what I learned in 2017 (you can read the blog post here) to book a trip for myself and really live in the moment. Since the New Year I’ve been feeling overwhelmed with catching up in work and my personal life so this trip is exactly what I needed! Traveling solo really helped me to think and re-prioritize, but also gave me time to distance myself for a bit and come back refocused. It felt nice to do whatever I wanted whenever I wanted. I didn’t even really plan a itinerary until I got there, which is very…
