Guatemala Series: Stove Day

On our trip each day we had different tasks and jobs to do in two different small villages, Los Corrales and Cojahualten. Monday was stove day…. Looking back stove day was probably my favorite time of mission work in the villages. It was incredible to get to go into these people’s homes and yards and…

My Hiking Adventure

So today I wanted to do a different style of blog post and share a super fun experience I had this past Monday! I didn’t post a blog post on Monday because I instead drove out to Central Oregon to hike the Green Lake trail! The views out there are so stunning. I always tell…

Take it ALL in

It’s so nice to once in a while, especially during a stressful and busy day, to take yourself out of your situations and find a quiet place to recharge. This I have found is so incredibly helpful for my own mental health and sanity. When the going is just too rough find that quiet safe…

Vogue Parody: 73 Questions with Mikaela

I love Vogue’s 73 questions with celebrities and learning fun facts about them. One of my favorite parodies as well would have to be Liza Koshy’s parody. Random and ones I wouldn’t even think to ask sometimes! So I thought it would be fun to do a get to know me questionnaire as well! 73…

Finding a Lifeline in Fitness

We all have those special things that we do that get us through the hard times. The special things that are our ways of self-care that combat the doubt and depression. Music, cooking, drawing, getting outdoors, writing… etc. For myself personally, and I know for a lot of people as well, my main way to…

Hobby Challenge!!

I’ve had several people reach out recently and ask about my hobbies outside of fitness. Fitness is definitely a lifestyle for me so I don’t really consider it a hobby, but to some people it is and that is completely fine! Whatever works for you and you see the results! 🙂 That’s what matters in…

I’m Back!!! AND Collagen Peptides

I’M BACK!!!!!!! I’m sorry I was MIA for a while on my blog posts. I was honestly struggling with coming up with ideas on what to write about and what I really wanted the theme of my blog to be. I’m leaning more towards the healthy lifestyle + fitness so not only can I give…

Motivational Tips and Hacks

Sometimes getting to the gym or even getting your day started can be rough and hard… I personally have days where I don’t want to move from my bed. My mom likes to describe those days as “The lazy song” by Bruno Mars for me. Somehow I manage to get myself up though and to…

Competing with Brittany

Competing is a huge aspect in the fitness world and most athletes share their journey over social sites so as to include people in their everyday life. I have never done a competition personally, but I have friends who have and I am always in awe of the process they go through. The different stages,…

My Experience with FRÈ

Ever since I have begun to workout, about four years ago, I have loved all the results and growth that is happening both physically and mentally for me. I have progressed slowly, but it all has been worth it. My only complaint though with my fitness journey is I have noticed personally I have struggled…

Whey Protein

I have many people ask me at my job daily what the difference is with the types of whey protein we carry and what times of the day are the best for using them. So I thought I’d do a little get to know your protein type post. Whey comes from milk, which casein also…
