1. 6-Week Macro Motivation Challenge

I’ve been sharing all about this challenge on Instagram this week, but if you haven’t heard, I’m hosting a 6-Week Macro Motivation Challenge and it starts this Monday, February 3!

The 6-Week Macro Motivation Challenge will help you find REAL balance within your diet. Trust me, you can have the carrots and the cake, too! Instead of doing what you’ve always done and reverting back to old habits again and again, give “flexible” macro tracking with me a try. I’ll help you change your mindset related to food and the idea of “all or none” once and for all. Your eating habits do not need to be perfect to see progress. Learn how macros can work for YOU while also LIVING and ENJOYING your life to its fullest!

What’s included?

  • “How to Calculate Macros for Weight Loss” guide
  • 2-week sample meal plan
  • daily check-ins and accountability logs
  • weekly Q&A + education
  • ongoing support via private Facbook group <— it’s already quite the happening place! 🙂
  • “Getting Started with Macros” guide
  • weekly freebies + giveaways!

2. Quilted Pullover Top

You all know how much I love my Amazon fashion finds, and this quilted pullover is one of my recent finds. It looks cute with leggings, jeans, layered under a vest… and the best part is it’s only $30. It comes in 5 different colors, too. You might have seen me where is a few (dozen) times on Instagram Stories recently! 🙂


3. 88 Acres Banana Bread Protein Bar (+ coupon)

I love 88 Acres pumpkin seed butter, but their banana bread protein bars with 12 grams of protein… holy cow, they’re one of my new favorite snacks! They’re soooo delicious, gluten-free, nut-free, vegan, and made with only 7 simple ingredients. Let me repeat that part about them being DELICIOUS because they are… like, a lot.

If you’re interested in trying them for yourself, you can save 20% off your order with the coupon code below!


4. Jeremy Scott Podcast: 33 Total Body Transformation Tips

This was SUCH a great podcast episode because it summarized everything you need to do to ACTUALLY transform your body. No fat diets. No trendy workouts. No excuses. No B.S. It’s definitely worth a listen if you’re feeling stuck and need some direction with your weight loss or fitness goals.

5. Beautycounter Brightening Oil

Beautycounter’s No. 1 Brightening Oil is one of my go-to products. (I actually just purchased another bottle earlier this week.) In the cold winter months, my skin tends to be a bit more dry and so I use it in place of my moisturizer and sometimes mixed with Tint Skin for extra glow. It’s packed with vitamin C and feels so nourishing, plus I think it helps even my skin tone (in addition to the Overnight Resurfacing Peel). It’s truly the best product!!
