MY GOODNESS. I’ve been wanting to write to you forever. And so here we are. Back to the ever fabulous, always changing Wellness Wednesday.

Let’s take a flashback to 2012/2013/2014 when I wasn’t the woman I am today. When I was trapped inside a shell of self doubt, control, grief and the constant need for perfectionism. Back to when I regretfully had no idea what a healthy relationship with my body or mind meant when it came to food. I lived and died by my next meal. Always thinking and contemplating what I’d have next. Planning ever so wisely so I could make sure to never surpass my caloric goals for the day. It’s sad, but a truth. My own truth and one that will forever be included in the story of my life.

I’m just getting back to Chicago and settling into my routine after a weekend trip to Boulder, Colorado for our first ever Healthy Glow Co. retreat, which was absolutely AMAZING. Fourteen girls from across the country to celebrate the amazing community we’ve built for the past year and enjoy a day of self care including facials, hiking, cooking together, family style meals and SO MUCH MORE.

Anddddd that’s not all! This weekend we also celebrated some big news: our HGG STRONG fitness plan is finally live!

As you guys know I’ve been representing Under Armour Women this year as one of their 7 ambassadors. It has been an incredible journey, and I’m so lucky to be part of this awesome group of women. UA Women are all about inspiring each other, including the next generation of all the ladies out there.

Today I’m taking you inside… my UA shoe closet. I’ve accumulated some awesome gear from them, but the shoes have to be some of my FAVORITES. Most of you know that I run, do yoga, cycle, lift, dance and pretty everything in between that keeps me active, so I need shoes that will work no matter what I’m doing.

Happy Wellness Wednesday, everyone! I hope you’ve had a fabulous week so far. I landed in NYC late last night after a couple days of recipe-testing at AK HQ, and I couldn’t be more excited to share all of the new recipes with you guys (Abra and I had trouble just fitting them all into the upcoming weeks!).

If you know me at all, you know I LOVE Trader Joe’s. Not only do I find it less expensive than most grocery stores here in Chicago, but I love their fun, new products and bopping around in those cute little red carts. Of course, it’s essential to avoid the Trader Joe traffic so I find that early morning shopping is best.

I’m so excited to finally share the Ambitious Kitchen wellness series with you in partnership with Under Armour Women.

Even if you’ve only been following AK for the last few months, you know that I’m an advocate for women finding their own definition of health and wellness. I’ve shared stories on this blog about my struggles with finding balance, perfectionism, stress, losing my father, food addiction, ditching the scale and so much more.

I think of where this journey had led me. Where I’ve been because of blogging and how it’s shaped the person I am today.

I hope you guys had an AMAZING weekend. I spent time enjoying the beautiful weather, brunching, cleaning our place and drinking way too much coffee. Seriously, it’s become my little addiction and I’m not mad about it one bit. My Grandma has been drinking coffee morning, afternoon and night for years and she’s one of the most badass women I know.

In other very exciting news… The Healthy Glow Guide round 2 is finally HERE! The Healthy Glow Guide is back for round 2 with a seasonal meal plan full of fresh flavors, grilling recipes, salads and SO MUCH MORE. That’s right, you asked us for more and we listened: Most of the recipes found in the meal plan are exclusive recipes that Lee and I both developed.

If you didn’t know, now you do: I’m an Under Armour Women Ambassador and so freaking proud to be one. It’s a company with an incredible, powerful and inspiring mission to help women achieve their goals in and out of the gym. And I have to admit, each and every time I pull up my leggings or throw on a UA tank, I feel a little bit more inspired to perform, achieve and reach my goals.

There’s something about this brand that’s truly special. 

I figured it was about time for me to show off my favorite UA looks: from hiking and running to casual and chic. I’ve worn this gear running, hiking, biking, interval training at my gym, and pretty much everything in between. I’ll never look back and neither will you.

So let’s get to it ladies!

Hope your weekend was spectacular and full of healthy eats, feel good inspiration and LOTS OF LOVE. I actually binge watched Big Little Lies on Saturday night. I really wasn’t planning on it, but I couldn’t stop watching! Anybody else obsessed?

Now… onto a little exciting project we’ve been working on over at Healthy Glow Co. called the #GlowGoodChallenge in partnership with Blue Diamond Almonds!
