ACAI Bowls & Starting Fresh

Finally, got a morning to myself in almost 6 months where I wasn’t rushing to get kids out, scrambling to get to the studio or to the beach to teach class or train an early client, while my season of chaos has slowed a little… after months of 60-70 hour work weeks, its catch up time on doctors appointments, car repairs, meetings, errands galore, and the house. That is a whole monster to tackle in itself! Can I get an Amen??

So I’ve finally decided to refocus and spend some time re-evaluating time, life, what is most important, what the future could hold, and what my dreams and aspirations are going forward from today. This is not easy coming from a type A, perfectionist, workaholic, and guilt driven woman with three small children!

Small changes lead to big results is what I tell my clients all the time. So I’m taking my own advice for once! So my small change was going back to basics and finding the few things that make me feel whole and inspired again. It all started with an ACAI bowl (and waiting till the kiddos were off to school.) 🙂

I sat down with my new ACAI recipe and made a list of things to do for myself today that would jump-start inspiration and feel accomplished for the day. (yes I did have a small to do list-but I made sure to make sure it was small and quick to accomplish!)

Do you need a restart, a self-care day, and refocusing jumping off point? We all need days where we can quiet the mind, spark creativity, recharge the soul, and all it takes is a little time in the kitchen for a recipe, a matcha latte and a blank notebook, dusting off the guitar that stares at you everyday in the corner, or cleaning out your drawers so you can actually put your clothes away. Here’s to your little pop of inspiration to live today a little better and of course my new ACAI Bowl recipe to make you feel even better! Here’s to free time, powerful antioxidants, and a healthy boost of goodness.
