Investing in yourself

Hey guys! So today's post is a little nerve-wrecking to share, but I know you'll all support me. So about a month ago I finally decided after years of putting it off, to try the 21 Day Fix program ran by the beautiful Lauren. We use to work together and the JW, and she lost a ton of weight, but more importantly put her health as a top priority. I've tried to get my butt in shape many a times by trying class pass, whole30, you name it I've tried it. Alex decided to be unsupportive this time around because he figured the only way to get me to do something is to have to prove him wrong. Oh boy, did it work. I also became a pretty baller cook as well.


Check out my before and afters. I was so bloated before and pretty groggy most of the day & now I feel like an olympic athlete:
I learned to appreciate the food that I was putting in my body. Before, I felt as long as I worked out here and there a frozen pizza a day and some doughnuts were okay. Now that I'm actually eating things that fuel my body, my workouts are more consistent and I have so much more energy it's AMAZING. I think what really made the difference was having the accountability of a group challenge. It was great to have people there sharing their own tips for success, struggles and recipes! Because I had so much success, I decided to throw a free 5 day challenge group focusing on fitness tips, and healthy eating with the help of Lauren to help you get a kickstart as well! Drop a comment below, e-mail, text me, facetime me, send an owl, and I'll add you to the Facebook group. There's no better day to start than today-you have to start somewhere.
I also decided to be a Coach for Beachbody!
What does that mean? Not really sure yet, but I'm in love with Shakeology and I get discounts on it this way-but I feel like coaching others to achieve their goals body, mind and spirit is the perfect fit for me. Here's to new adventures!



Love you all!
Here's to a happier and healthier Katelyn at 26 (did I mention my birthday is coming up??)

Pink Flamingo

First off, can I just say, WHY IS THERE NOT A FLAMINGO EMOJI?
Anyways, I'm absolutely obsessed with this new dress from Eshakti that is swimming in flamingos! It's the absolute perfect picnic dress, comfy and you can get a good spin or dance in it and not worry about it being too short. Everything on the site is customizable, so I opted for a short sleeve and knee length. The weather in Denver has been so random lately, and I'm pretty sure mother nature saves all the rain for my weekends. Luckily it's looking good this weekend since I have friends visiting from out of state (whew!).

   

They have the cutest summer dresses right now! I'm currently crushing over this Pineapple dress, a Lobster dress, AND A CAT DRESS! Okay, as you can tell I'm all about the prints this summer. There's something that makes your day a little brighter when you're wearing something you designed with flamingos on it. You can use the code "thesuitcaseblonde" for 10% off your purchase (not to mention they also have a memorial day sale going on). I'm currently adding that cat dress to my closet! You can also check out eShakti on FacebookPinterest, and Instagram.

Happy Memorial Day & a huge thank you to the service men and women that gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. We're so lucky to live in a country where we can say what we want, and worship God without the fear of our lives, and for that I'm forever grateful.

Springing Forward

Hello, beauties!
I've been searching for a church in Denver for awhile that I could really connect with. It's pretty nerve-wrecking trying to find a new church when you really loved the last one you went to before moving. One day at work I asked a guest what she was up to the rest of her day and she said "Oh, church at 1:00pm, it's weird I know", and after chatting she told me she went to Red Rocks Community Church. I wouldn't normally think anything of it until she told me it can be strange to new people because there are many campuses and they broadcast it live on screens to the other campuses. My old church was like this so I was pretty excited to try it out & needless to say I fell in love. Alex and I both had this Sunday off (which never happens) so after I watched him win a state championship in racquetball, we headed to church. Here's a cute little dress I thrifted for about $5.00 from Arc Thrift-perfect for Spring!

You may also notice that my hair is the shortest it's been since high school. Well, I volunteered to be a hair model for a stylist doing a practical and my hair got fried. So it was either cut it off or let it fall off. Sometimes you just have to roll with the punches! Have a great Tuesday everyone! I start a new job tomorrow and I've been busy writing articles for Denver Style Magazine so be on the lookout :)
