Friday Vision

Heyyyyy 😀 IT’S FRIDAY! Wahoo!!! Hope you have something fun going on this weekend 🙂

I started off my Friday with a giant organic plumble jumble:


and a much-needed weights sesh. I’ve been neglecting iron pumping for the past week in favor of amazing yoga and dance classes 😉 This morning, it felt SO good to focus and get a quick and effective weights sesh in.

Post-weights smoothie:

Last night, after I got home from Dance Trance (which was AMAZING! Two of my work friends were there and one of the new songs was “Love the Way You Lie” – a ballet/lyrical/hip hop combo) and had a little art project to work on.

A vision board!

As ya’ll know, I’m no stranger to the inspiration board (and recently re-visited mine), but for work, we had to create a 10-year vision board. The idea is that you make a board including statements of how you’re life is going 10 years from now. The purpose is to see these accomplishments and take steps NOW to make them happen.

Here’s a closer glimpse at mine:

What does it say?

10 years from now…

-My family consists of myself, my pilot husband, two kids and two dogs (Note: The Pilot wants a thousand kids and I want two, so we’ll see what happens haha)

-I practice vinyasa yoga 4x a week and dance because it makes my heart happy

-We live in a house with high ceilings, neutral colors, with a huge kitchen and entertain often (A big kitchen is the #1 most important thing to me! Two ovens would rock my world)

-I weight train on a regular basis (3x a week)

-My vegan catering business and online bakery sales are consistently increasing

-We are debt-free: no car payments, school loans, nada (I have a car payment and the Pilot has school loans, so to get these out of our lives would be glorious)

-My agent has just contacted me regarding a second book deal (You have to have one book deal to have a second… so I better get crackalackin)

Well I’m off to run a couple of errands, take a dance class and then head to work!

See ya later today with a Fashion Friday post! I’m thinking fall sweaters/jackets…. 🙂

    I really like the idea of a long-term vision board. Yours is the first I’ve ever heard of or seen and I think it’s so important so we can see the big picture of things!

    I know you’re like in the witness protection program or something, but it’s killing me wondering what the heck your job could be that you make vision boards and other things that you do! Did I miss it or is it another secret? I’d guess it’s a life coach training program but that’s usually something you pay for, not get paid for. ???

    Your vision board is fabulous – I just love the idea of a vegan catering business. LOL perhaps you can franchise and have a branch in Chicago!

    I like Lady Gaga, but that song was a smidge too weird for me! Blarh! Haha… hurray for weights sessions and your awesome 10 year plan! 🙂 Love it!
