So what is the purpose of YOLO on a Yoyo? I’m running into a lot of people who don’t necessarily know what YOLO is, so first a little knowledge drop. If you aren’t aware, YOLO stands for You Only Live Once and obviously unless you’re some sort of whiz, a yoyo goes up and down (and sometimes all around!).
YOAY is about taking the YOLO mentality and making it reality. And by reality, I mean, sure we all want to live every day to the fullest, but we have responsibilities and things to take care of – that’s life. Not to mention that life isn’t always perfect.
We don’t all live in a world of 9-5, with hours upon hours throughout a day to workout and meal prep, without stress. Add on the fact that there are also fun things to with friends and family to fit in – entertaining, happy hours, new restaurants to try, travel. And yes, while there are a lucky few who manage to indulge on the regular and not suffer the consequences, the majority of us fall into the camp of needing to find the right balance. That’s what I’m here to talk about. My balance – in hopes that you too will find yours.
I truly believe that everyone has their own balance. While there are definitely some fundamental, scientifically-proven facts to move us in the right direction, there is no recipe for success that 100% applies to everyone to get you to your best self.
It’s about a lifestyle, not a diet. Not a workout plan, but a lifestyle. In sharing my journey, I hope that we can find and share the pieces to get you there and help you find what works for YOU.
So that’s YOAY! With ALLLL that said, I wanted to share the types of content you can expect to see on the blog in the coming weeks and months. ENJOY!

My mom, brother, SIL, husband and I (that’s a mouthful!) are currently doing the Fed and Fit 28-Day Plan from the book of the same name. Seeing the changes in my husband and I from our last Whole30 run made my family curious, and it makes me so happy to get them thinking about what they put into their bodies! While the hubs and I aren’t following the plan in its structure, we’re utilizing the recipes and incorporating what we learned during our time doing The Whole30 (See! Balance!). If you haven’t heard of Fed & Fit or been introduced to the gem of a human being that Cassy Joy is, you need to check it out! I’ll be sharing our experiences throughout the days of the plan, results of my family, pics of my favorite dishes on Instagram, things that we’ve learned, and most importantly, how we’re feeling/felt throughout!
I always say getting healthy is all about inside and out. I’ve been switching up my regimen to incorporate safer, less toxic products. But with so many options on the market today, sometimes it’s hard to know which will actually work, which ingredients to stay away from, and which are OK. I think it’s also important to not feel like you’re missing something by using these products vs. what you’ve been using for years! I’ll be doing comparisons of some of my favorites as well as some that I haven’t tried before. I’ll share my thoughts here. 🙂
When Your Dress Size is Double Digits
I freaking love clothes, but as my butt has been expanding over the years, I’ve found the selection of clothing to be less than appealing. It’s already hard enough to not feel comfortable in your own skin, but who wants to wear flowered garbage bags and striped tents?!! That said, I’ll be sharing some ideas that I’ve used, brands that I love, and any helpful articles I’ve found to help give some variety to your life and boost your confidence. We can all use these as inspiration as we’re dropping the L-Bs!
What I’m Excited About Right Now
I’ll be adding a section on the blog that talks about products that I’m super excited about! For instance, I just ordered my Jade Roller! Have you guys heard about these things? It’s a roller-type device that you use to massage your face. It’s supposed to help with sagging skin, circulation, and more! I’ll post soon to tell you if it lives up to its hype. Fingers crossed that it does!
Again, all of this is work in progress. I’m learning as I’m growing. I also welcome and ask for your feedback! As I work to find my voice, your thoughts, comments, and criticisms are so helpful! Please email me or comment below.
So many more exciting things to come! Until then, make it a great day!
