Wellness Series Episode 4: What’s next for Ambitious Kitchen

In the final episode from the AK Wellness Series come read about the hopes, dreams, and goals for the brand coming up. Enjoy!

Hi guys! We’re back with the last episode of the wellness series in partnership with Under Armour Women.

I spent last weekend at a retreat in Santa Barbara working on personal and business goals at the Big Soul Retreat that Under Armour so graciously sponsored me for. I had been wanting to go on a soul searching type of retreat for quite some time and so when this one popped up on my radar, I knew it was time to do it. And it’s perfect because today we are talking about what’s next for Ambitious Kitchen.

First off, the retreat offered me exactly what I needed: a chance to explore my fears and wants, yoga daily, plant based meals, and a destination away from the chaos that is often my daily life.

Because the truth is, over the past year and a half or so, I’ve been overwhelmed with the level of stress in my life. It’s not something I talk about often, but it frequents my days and weeks like you wouldn’t believe. Where does the stress come, you might ask? Buying a house, getting married and running two businesses and the pressure I put on myself to always being DOING.

However the truth is, I should be less hard on myself. I really do have my dream job. I have a life that I’m really proud of. And more than anything I’m so incredibly grateful to have a community of people who make my recipes on a regular basis. I wish I could give you all a big hug.

Sometimes when you’re always on the go, you forget to say thank you to yourself for all the hard work you’ve put in along the way. You forget to tell yourself how proud you are and acknowledge what it took to get where you are. We’ve all got our own unique journeys and I’m SO incredibly blessed to be on mine.

While I really don’t know what’s next for Ambitious Kitchen, I’d like to think that a cookbook is on the radar and potentially going back to school for nutrition. We’ll see. All I know is that I can’t thank you enough for being here.
