As if finding your best self physically and emotionally isn’t enough there are some amazing prizes up for grabs too:



In May of 2014 I was rear ended by a vehicle going over 35 MPH while I was at a complete stop.

The consequences of that accident have been life changing and have resulted in the hardest 18 months of my life.

Every day is a battle to just do daily tasks as I continue to fight post concussion syndrome but I refuse to let this unfortunate event destroy me.

I use the pain every day as motivation to make myself stronger mentally and physically and I want to help you fight through your battles too!


Growing up as an athlete I was never short of physical activity and it definitely showed through my extremely skinny build!

I struggled my entire life to put on weight until I developed hypothyroidism when I was 19-years-old.

My under active thyroid leads to easy weight gain, so instead of eating whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted, I had to learn to eat healthier to be able to continue to compete as a Division-1 athlete in college.

In college I learned how to lift heavy and loved the results that came with it!

I was finally filling in my “bony back” which was always somewhat of a joke among my friends because of how far my shoulder blades stuck out my entire life.

As I started to make progress it gave me even more motivation to turn my biggest weakness into one of my biggest strengths.


While I did make significant progress in college it wasn’t until after college that I started making even faster gains after I became more educated in how to properly use supplements in addition to a healthy diet.

Despite not even being able to work out for months and weeks at a time in the past 18 months following the car accident, I’m very proud of how far I have been able to come while not being 100%!

I’ve made more progress while battling chronic pain than I did when I was 100% healthy!

If I can make it work then so can you!



My transformation physically and mentally is never ending and I am going to continue to try and find my best self each and every day!

How To Use A Yoga Strap To Improve Flexibility

Yoga straps are a great tool for yogis of all levels to improve flexibility. They are used to basically extend your arms to reach your furthest point of flexibility.

They typically cost around $10 but I actually found mine on clearance at TJ Maxx for only $3! I’ve been using it in my yoga practice for a few weeks and I’m already loving the benefits, especially with the shoulder opening poses.

Here a ways to use a yoga strap to improve your flexibility.


Shoulder Openers

Secure the strap around your feet and reach your hands down the strap as far as you can into bow pose and keep inching your hands a little closer to your feet as much as you can.



This could also be done one foot at a time like in the photo below.



You can also use the strap to open your shoulders by standing in dancers pose and gripping the strap with both hands as close as you can reach to the end secured around your foot.


Can you touch your hands together in Cow Face Pose? If you can’t a yoga strap can help you get there! Just grasp the strap with both hands and inch them as close to each other as you can.


Standing Poses

The strap can also be used to assist with standing poses for example Extended Hand To Big Toe. The strap helps with balance which makes it easier to improve your alignment and be able to hold the pose longer.


Seated Poses

If you have trouble reaching your toes, you can use a yoga strap to help you go a little deeper by securing it around your feet and reaching as far as you can on the strap with a straight spine.



Take your binds to the next level by grasping the strap in one hand as you begin the bind and then grab the strap with your other hand and inch your hands closer together as much as you can.



It’s important to always respect your body and the stages you are out in your practice. So pick up a yoga strap ASAP to start taking your flexibility to a new level in a safe and effective way.

How To Find Peace When Life Feels Like It’s Falling Apart

Sometimes it feels like everything is going wrong. Sometimes it feels like I’m not good enough. Sometimes it feels like I can’t do anything right. Sometimes I feel insecure and sometimes it feels like everybody else is living in a perfect world and mine is just crumbling all around me.

It’s called life and it happens to everyone.

We are all going to feel this way every once in a while. But the thing is, you don’t have let these negative thoughts run your life.

I’ve found that the “secret” to turning these bad thoughts around comes down to three very simple things that may sound cliché but they work:

1. Put down the phone, step away from your computer and find a peaceful quite place, preferably outdoors.

2. Breathe. And don’t just breathe like you normally would. Instead, take long deep breaths and focus on fully inhaling and exhaling. It also helps if you think about inhaling the good and exhaling the bad.

3. Turn your negative thoughts into positive ones. Instead of filling your brain with all of the things that are going wrong focus on how far you’ve come to get to where you are now.  Whatever it is that’s bothering you in that moment, chances are you’ve overcome far harder things before.

That’s it.

It sounds too good to be true but if you really try, you can make it happen.

And if you have a lot of time to spare practice some yoga! I can’t think of a single time I didn’t feel better after stepping off my mat.
