Tea Wisdom and Life Planning

Today was AWESOME and super inspiring.  I’ve been re-evaluating my life and goals lately, and today’s walk in the woods got me back down to basics and was a great start to refocus and come up with a plan. For more on today’s adventure head on over to 

My biggest struggle has been that I have been so stressed out, all I have wanted to do was come home, sit on my cozy chair and snuggle my cats, drink wine, and edit photos. Now, however my wedding season is coming to a close, and I’ve decided to only shoot with Closer North next year, ( will give me more time to focus on adventuring and writing! (FMI: )

My goals include to get back into the shape I was last year at this time, but in order to do that I need to make it a priority and make some changes in my lifestyle.

I’m here to put my intentions in writing, so that I can come back and re read this when  feel the need to go off course.

Here’s my model for the day:

5:30 am – wake up, make coffee, feed cats

5:45 – personal development reading with coffee and cats

6:30 – yoga sequence

7:00 – shower

7:30 – breakfast, coffee 2, get dressed, etc.

8:00 – leave for work

8:15 – 8:20 – arrive at work and get ready for day.

8:30 start of work day

10:15- 10:30 snack

work, work, work, work, work

1:00 pm lunch with green tea

3:30 snack

5:00 leave work

5:15 Gym! Gold’s or Thrive depending on day/class/etc. but 30 minutes every day! StairMaster is a priority. Begin weight training again.

6:15 – 7:00 home, make dinner, eat.

7:00 – 8:30 emails, photos, write, etc. etc. etc.

8:30 get ready to head into bed wash face, brush teeth, stretch a bit, then into bed to read more, or Instagram, write more, etc. relax time. make hot detox tea.

9:00 – phone away, take a melatonin, plug in the lavender oils, and read until I drift into dreamland.

9:30 – 5:30 am – 8 hours of blissful wondrous sleep.

so – WISH ME LUCK! and please share if you have any tips or ideas of your own!

  1. AMBITIOUS! if you master your morning ritual I’ll be extremely impressed. All such cool stuff to pack into the day, I hope you love the new schedule! xoxo

  2. Omg I am so excited for you! This is going to be amazing! I love getting up early and enjoying my morning before work – LIFE CHANGING!!! Let’s check in, I could use some support to be more consistent too!

  3. Good luck on starting the journey. I’m working on doing five days of exercise each week. That’s gone well. If I could stop eating like a teenager, I’d be miles ahead. One tip: don’t be too hard on yourself if you stray. Enjoy the journey.
