Lots has happened since we last talked and I have some exciting news: I am expecting and am 22 weeks along! It has been quite the journey and I couldn’t be more excited and grateful for this blessing. When I got pregnant, I got a bit stuck in not knowing how to address this big life change on social media. I decided to take a mini hiatus to clear my mind and [hopefully] figure it out. And what better way to get back to our little space on the internet than with some dreamy 2018 goals?! [Preggo or not, this planning-loving, Type A gal likes to have a clear vision for the year ahead. 😉 You can check out my 2017 resolutions here.]
Hope your week is off to a great start! Apologies for my lack of post last week. I was traveling for a conference that lasted three days (and where I got to speak!!), so I had to focus on the event, client work and two work dinners. But now, we’re back to regularly scheduled programming… 🙂
Today I want to talk about dairy: the good, the bad and the ugly. My family and friends know that I gave up dairy this January. So it’s been about ten months that I’ve been dairy-free and I wanted to share my journey with you. If you’re considering making the move, hopefully this post helps you weigh the pros and cons. [Also, this is my experience and what has personally worked for me. Everyone is different and I encourage you to find what works for you!]
Hopefully Monday wasn’t too rough and you’re now in the flow of a wonderful new week! Over the last couple of months I have been focusing on how to maximize my productivity throughout the day. It’s a journey and I do not have it all figured out yet. But I have learned several tricks [like my sleeping hack I blogged about last week] that really help, and one of them is having a solid morning routine.
Here’s my schedule starting from the minute that I wake up:
It’s finally fall and I feel like I’m living my best mini-pumpkin overloaded life over here. [But seriously, I just snagged a bag of mini white and orange pumpkins from Tom Thumb…insert *squeal* here].
As we enter into the new season and the start of Q4, my goal-setting and personal development self is operating at an all-time high. I think it also might have something to do with the fact that Rosh Hashana was last week, which is the Jewish New Year for anyone who doesn’t celebrate. 🙂 The New Year always brings out my desire to create new resolutions or at least revisit old ones. [Check out out my 2017 goals and H2 goals.] I plan on writing up my Q4 goals in the near future!
Today I want to chat about some of my favorite podcasts, apps and business leaders that I hope help you in your day to day lives. I am always on the search for the best tools and thought leaders to help me become a more efficient businesswoman and now blogger/influencer.
