Motivation Mondays!  We’re talking goals on the blog today!  What are your summer goals?  Lord knows I have a lot of them, and I plan to achieve as many of them as I can!  One big goal I have is eating healthy and maintaining a healthy weight.  In order to achieve this goal I’ve been meal prepping (if you know me, this is such a big deal!) and working out (another BIG deal!).  I’ve been meal prepping my meals Monday-Friday and it has been truly empowering!  It feels liberating to eat healthy most of the time…who would have known?!

“The size of your dreams must always exceed your current capacity to achieve them.  If your dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough.”

Now to this look, baseball cap and curly hair, who knew it would make the perfect combination?!
