It’s been 101 days since the end of my 90 day journey. That “journey mindset” not only changed my body but it’s changed the way I handle the challenges I’m faced with daily. . One of the biggest internal struggles I was facing pre-journey was the fear of upsetting people. Trying to keep people happy made me so unhappy, removed my backbone, and created a timid, fearful person who was afraid to take risks. I hated that version of me. I didn’t feel authentic to myself. I was trapped. . The backlash that came with my 90 day journey was meant to be. It made me face my biggest fears head on, and there was no backing out. At the time, I felt like announcing my journey was a mistake – but looking back now – it was EXACTLY the battle that I needed face to GET STRONGER. . I’m so thankful. . So thankful for every tear, every breakdown, every triumph, every failure, every person (this includes you), and every experience that has allowed me to be EXACTLY where I am today. Because I am so much happier. Truly. My confidence has come back to me, mean comments don’t hurt as badly, and I know what I stand for once again – unwavered by people’s opinion of me. . So there’s my post 90 day journey update. I’m doing well – actually, better than ever. I’m just so grateful I get to feel this way. . All of this…from the initial goal of wanting to get in the best shape of my life mentally and physically. It actually happened. 😊 #blogilates

We all need a little reset sometimes, however most of us don’t have the time or funds for a full fledge week long destination vacation, I know I sure don’t. In the name of accessibility..thank you blessed “staycation” for coming into save the day! One of my favorite ways to reset while not completely breaking the bank is a proper staycation. I have been using @hoteltonight loyally since 2015, and the magic of this app is that the longer you wait, the more you can save, making your last- minute craving for a staycation a REALITY! – – I always find that even one night away from cooking, writing recipes or curriculum for an event, etc REALLY helps reset my body, mind, and spirit. Pictured above you’ll find that I’ve ordered basically the entire room service menu lol Who says a staycation for there weekend can’t be just as healing as jumping on a plane? and like I said..in honor of accessibility, this is also a really wonderful option for those on a particular budget, but with major staycation needs. – – Do you have a favorite hotel to staycation at in your city? If you’re in NYC, What is your favorite hotel to stay in? Why? I am always on the lookout for new places to have a restful weekend away, but not too far away 🙂 #myhoteltonight #ad
