GUTS! do you refresh them?

GUTS! Do you refresh them? HAHA! I’M SO CLEVER— remember that show GUTS! DO YOU HAVE THEM? Yep, that’s what I based the title of this blog off of. Sometimes, ya know, you just need to crack yourself up in order to proceed on with your day a little bit lighter…. Speaking of lighter!  How are you feeling today? I’m feeling pretty gross because I’ve been pretty much allowing myself to eat whatever and whenever I want- pizza, wings, chocolate covered pretzels, a whole jar of “healthy trail mix” in one sitting, half a bag of sweet potato chips in 5 minutes… You know! Anything goes! I also have been skipping out on my favorite gut detox- hot water with lemon and honey in the morning and I can tell- and (GASP) I missed two days last week of my shake. You guys, pretty much, the house is burning down over here and I have no way of putting it out- or do I?! I DO! IT’S CALLED… THE THREE DAY REFRESH!

Kissing Frogs, Writing Blogs

Do you know what it means to eat a frog? That’s a little saying I’ve learned in the past year- it means to do the one thing that you know you SHOULD do, but you avoid doing for some reason.

I enjoy inspiring… so, why do I constantly “forget” about this little thing?   Because, I have a hard time believe anybody cares.  Guess what? I feel this way a bout quite a few aspects of my life.

All this fundraising... WHY?

I'm sure by now, you've seen my countless posts. Countless videos. Countless ways for you to donate to LLS. Maybe you understand why this is so important to me, maybe you have your own connection, maybe you have NO IDEA why this is such a "big thing" & why I'm so passionate about it. (I use the words passion & obsession interchangeably, haha!)  So, I'm going to take this time to blog and explain. Share some stories. Fill you in on this huge part of my heart.... I have been given the opportunity of a lifetime to help others. Each year The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) launches its Man & Woman of the Year fundraising campaign, and I was honored to join this year’s efforts as the 2015 Woman of the year Campaign Manager for Team Fight for Joy.  I am writing today to ask for your support of LLS’s mission in its efforts to find cures for blood cancers and to assist patients and families as they battle this disease.
