Happy Friday! It’s been a long week and that’s with a day off on Monday.

My sleep is back on track, workouts are going as planned and next weekend is 3 days of YTT200. I’d say life is definitely good.

This is the perfect time to celebrate favorite things. Don’t you think?

The things that make life even more amazing.

Happiness is getting another shipment of yoga books for teacher training. I get totally absorbed in the books I’m reading (and sometimes re-reading) for yoga teacher training. It’s fascinating, so very new to me and I want to absorb it all.

I often talk about listening to your body and you’ll know what you need. Well. I listened and as it turns out I needed a magnesium supplement. I’m sleeping better (and longer) and my energy levels are more balanced throughout the day and as a result of both stress is managed much more effectively.

I’ve been working on a new muffin recipe for what seems like forever. It’s finally perfected! I’m so happy with how it turned out. Definitely worth the time and trial and error. I’ll share the recipe on Sunday.

As a Momentum Jewelry ambassador I’m so excited to be a part of an awesome campaign to inspire others. A big part of why I do the things I do is to educate and inspire others. The #sharethespark campaign is to be the spark that inspires someone. I’ve given one to my daughter who is focused on Cross Fit goals and one to my husband who is wearing it to train for a 314 mile race, The Last Annual Volunteer State Road Race, in July.

Give a shoutout to Amy and the Momentum team for this awesome campaign to inspire the people around us!

I’m going to #sharethespark with 2 lucky readers! Leave a comment before my bedtime, 9 PM EST, and your name will go into a random drawing for a special #sharethespark Momentum wrap.

Avocado toast on homemade bread with a side of fresh veggies. I could eat this everyday and be perfectly happy. There’s something about eating foods that not only taste good, and you know it’s good for your body too.

I’m also loving: this Tone and Burn Treadmill workout, “bowl” meals for breakfast and dinner, and the realization that I was owning what wasn’t mine to own. Things I couldn’t change and was causing stress. Boom! More on that later.

I would love to chat:

What’s on your list of favorite things? Have you read any really good books lately? Who would you #sharethespark with?

be the best version of YOU

  3. I love the bracelet and the message behind it! All of your pics are such wonderful things!

  4. What a cute bracelet!! I like that it gives you hope and encouragement.

  5. I’ve never heard of calm. What does it do for you? I’ve tried yoga but havent fallen in love with it.

  6. I love the bracelet. Its such a great idea to just give something to someone you love/your friends to keep them encouraged.
    🙂

  7. I love that little pendant! What a perfect sentiment. I LOVE avocado toast – it is one of my daughter’s favorites as well. And those fresh sliced veggies look delicious!

  8. I am loving this #sharethespark campaign!! So talk to me about beets. Do you eat them raw, cooked? Seasoned? I’ve never really tried them and I think it’s time! I’m not really a fan of cooked veggies, I prefer raw because of the texture. Can you eat beets raw?

  9. Avocado toast sounds so good, no idea why I’ve never done that!

  10. Your meal looks amazing! So many beautiful colors on that plate. Also, I’m in total awe that you’re in bed by 9pm. A lot of times that when I finally have time to sit down for dinner!

  11. Sounds like the little wins throughout your week definitely contribute to your happiness! Happiness for me is found in decorating my home, or keeping it clean! It eliminates stress and distractions for certain!

  12. I am hearing a lot of recommendations for the clam + calcium. Now I’ll have to check it out! Great list of faves!

  13. Yay for three day weekends! I absolutely adore avocado and toast, especially of the homemade variety! When I first got married my husband thought I was crazy for liking it, until he tried it!

    1. Hi Sarah, my husband thinks avo toast is weird. He’s a big veggie eater but he won’t even try it. Now that I think about it the only way he eats avo is guac. He’s missing out!

      Have a great weekend!

  14. I really want to get into yoga. I have such a sore body everyday from stress!

    1. Do it Amber! I can almost guarantee you won’t regret it. Yoga kicks stress to the curb even when you’re not on the mat.

      Have a great weekend!

  15. What is a good substitute for avocado? I would love to eat this but find I have an allergy to avocado and it stinks that I can’t eat these amazing recipes! Any suggestions would be wonderful!

    1. Hi Beeb. For the avocado toast I would probably sub avo with a chickpea mash with a little bit of olive oil and a tny bit of sea salt. Basically hummus without the tahini 🙂

      Have a great weekend!

  16. Ive been reading several decorating books and magazines, like the latest HGTV! They are incredibly calming to me and fill me with endless ideas for my own space…which also makes my heart happy!
    Here’s to finding your favorite thing!

    1. That’s awesome Colette. Find what makes you happy and do more of it 🙂

      Have a great weekend!

  17. Listening to your body is key. Whether it’s a magnesium supplement or anything else, it’s what you feel in your gut that pulls you together. Great points here…

    1. Thanks Karen. It’s kind of amazing when you become in tune with your body. Have a great weekend!

  18. I love all the momentum jewelry, especially the phrase you’ve got there! I’ve heard great things about naturally calm too, which is another thing on my must-try list.

    1. Hi Emily. The Natural Calm is seriously amazing. It’s exactly what my body needed. Have a great weekend!

  19. I love Momentum wraps. My daughter and I both have one. I would love to give one to a client of mine. How does one go about becoming a Momentum abassador?

    1. Hi Amanda. They contacted me but I think there’s an application on the website. Check it out. They’re great to work with.

  20. Wow!! 9 o clock bed time…impressive! I could probably get to sleep by 9:30 or if only the kids would stay in their beds and go to sleep! HA!!!

    That avocado toast looks delicious!!!! I will need to look up your recipe.

    Hmmm….magnesium….interesting.

    1. Hi Tamieka. How are you? The veggie plate has been lunch or dinner several times in the past 2 weeks. It’s so good!

  21. I love the idea of the #sharethespark campaign! Nice way to share the passion with the ones you love! That avocado toast and veggie tray does look fabulous! I am so happy it is Friday I am loving that the highs are in the 70’s and the sun is shining! Can’t ask for more! TGIF!!!!

    1. Hi Mary Beth. The veggie plate has been lunch or dinner several times in the past 2 weeks. We’re having crazy warm weather too. I’m not complaining but it’s so strange. Have a great weekend friend!

    1. Hi Cathy. The Natural Calm is amazing! It’s exactly what my body needed. Have a great weekend. I’m off to check out your book list.

  22. I love that share the spark campaign, it’s such a great idea. I think going into a gym and giving it to a stranger who is just killing their workout would be really cool.

    1. I’m happy to hear you like the campaign because you’re one of the winners Jen! I’ll email you to get your mailing address.

      Have a great weekend!

    1. Me too Smitha! I’m all for anything that inspires other to move and be active.

  23. Such a good list, Jill. I need to read The Four Agreements – I hear all the time how awesome that book is!

    1. I know! I can’t wait to read it. It’s tough because I feel that way about all of the books from YTT 🙂

  24. I’ll sometimes take magnesium before bed too. Glad it’s helping you! Those momentum wraps are awesome – a good reminder to look down and feel inspired! Eating foods that taste good and are good for the body is the best feeling.

    1. Hi Sarah, you’re so right about eating foods that taste good AND are good for your body IS the best feeling. It’s kind of hard to explain.

      Have a great weekend!

  25. So glad you found a way to sleep better. I think Natural Calm is something I really need to be on the look out for – sleep has been so tough for me lately.

    1. Thanks Michelle. I know not everyone needs a magnesium supplement but the Natural Calm is seriously amazing. Exactly what I needed. For about a month my sleep was totally wonky. Now I sleep soundly and I’m not waking up at 1 am.

      Have a great weekend!

  26. I need to get a Momentum Wrap, every time I see them I think they’re so pretty! I’m glad you found something to help your sleep—magnesium before bed really does the trick! Happy Friday!

    1. Hi Laura. The Natural Calm is seriously amazing. A good night’s sleep makes all the difference in the world.

      Have a great weekend!

  27. I love those Momentum wraps! I read The Martian when we missed in in theaters. I also liked Shondra Rhymes new book (The Year of Yes).

    1. I like the sound of The Year of Yes. Adding to to my B&N list. Have a great weekend!

  28. I will be on the look out for Natural Calm, it sounds wonderful! Great snack plate too, I love everything on it! Thanks for hosting!

    1. Autumn, Natural Calm is seriously amazing! The snack plate has been lunch or dinner several times in the past 2 weeks 🙂

      Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks Lisa. A good night’s sleep makes all the difference in the world. Have a great weekend!

  29. I have become such a coach napper at around 9 o clock. I’m lucky if I make it to 930 some nights!

    1. Hi Susie. I stayed up until 9:30 last night. I’m wild and crazy like that! The husband was shocked 🙂

  30. That avocado toast looks amazing!!! (and so does the bread underneath it!)

  31. I can’t imagine going to bed at 9; I’d be awake at 3! I just finished Cassandra Clare’S The Mortal Instruments series. They have only made the first book into a movie but I think all 6 books are movie worthy.

  32. OMG I LOVE Natural Calm! Isn’t it amazing!? I tried it for the first time last year and loved the sense of calm and relief that washes over my body when I use it. It also tastes pretty darn good too! LOL. I love drinking it at night!

    1. Hi Kaila. Natural Calm is amazing. You’re right. The feeling washes over you. I like it at night too. Warmed.
