I’ve missed you all so much this month! I haven’t been able to connect with you as much as I’d like. But if I were to have any reason, I hope a vacation in Mexico is good enough!
Vacations are funny. For me, they take a decent amount of preparation beforehand, and then require a lot of catching up once I’m back. I’ve learned to handle life accordingly and leave myself time before and after to take care of those things – it helps me keep my sanity!
But of course, a good trip is always worth it.
Matthew and I spent a week staying in Puerto Vallarta. We took full advantage of our time there and visited all the towns that surround it – Bucerias, Sayulita, Mismaloya, and Yelapa.
Ever since Matthew and I met, I’ve been asking him to vacation down south with me. This, coupled with the fact that the Calgary winter was an especially long one, made this trip really special for me. We had adventures every single day – from deciding where to have lunch, to hopping on the bus and praying we get off in the right town!
What I love about spending quality time with my partner and seeing them in different environments is that you get the chance to see them in new ways. How do they handle getting completely and utterly lost? What are their vacation priorities? How are they at learning a new language?
It took all week for Matthew to learn the word for “bathroom” in Spanish, but it was entertaining watching him re-learn and forget it over the week. He didn’t mind when I flubbed over new words myself – hah! It’s funny, the moments that end up sticking with you.
I’m so thankful for this trip because it reminded me that once you take a break from social media, enjoy quiet, and actually sit back and look at your life, you can have some pretty amazing moments. You get the chance to really check in with yourself and reassess.
Aside from the trip which was phenomenal, I do have some other exciting things coming up!
I am hosting another Intuitive Eating Workshop in May at SURFSET YYC – it has been the most popular workshop yet – I think in large part because it affects us all on some level to varying degrees. We are over stressed and often over-fed…. and not with the good stuff!
Secondly, in just a couple days my newest ebook is set to be released 👏🏻!
The Strong Babe Summer Guide is not your average diet book – in fact, it’s not a diet book at all. It’s a nutrition and lifestyle JUMPSTART to get you in the right mindset for summer and inspire your inner health nut!
Deprivation and yo-yo dieting are so last year. The Strong Babe Summer Guide is all about nutrients, delicious food, and eating until you are actually full. Plus there are going to be tons of tips on lifestyle, supplements, and self-love.
I’m looking forward to hearing what you guys think of it!
Believe it or not this is the third ebook I’ve written.
The first one, Anxiety Workbook, is for my fellow Anxiety Warriors looking for a holistic resource on how to help themselves. This ebook is so near and dear to my heart – if you have anxiety I highly recommend checking it out!
The second one, Easy-Peasy Meal Prep Guide, is a 100% free ebook to help you organize your food for the week! I would get so many comments and questions regarding meal prep, and I realized that this resource could be something that really helps people. Plus, it’s created in such a way that it can cater to you no matter what your diet is like!
Thank you so much for catching up with me today! As summer quickly approaches I wonder, do you have any exciting summer plans you are looking forward to? I would love to hear about it!
