Fargo Monthly Feature: How to do an At-Home Retreat!

Retreats. You see them everywhere nowadays and my guess is you’re extremely tempted to partake in one, but things get in the way like time, money and the energy to travel. While I’m a firm believer that everyone should treat themselves to a retreat at least once in their life, I also understand the challenges behind retreating, vacating and pressing “pause” on your life.

The immense benefits of treating yourself to a retreat include:

  • resetting the mind, body and spirit

  • recharging our internal battery

  • inspiring creativity and motivation

  • helping to manage and minimize stress

  • improving clarity around situations and questions we may have

Why Weight Loss Bores Me!

I’m just going to put it out there, if I’m being completely transparent, I just am NOT a fan of measuring your goal or success by how much you weight. Nope, nada, no.

Why? Well, I’ve never seen numbers be all that accurate. Nor do I think weight should be the ultimate health marker. I weigh 155 pounds! Holy moly! That seems like a lot. In fact, according to the height to weight ratio, I would be borderline overweight. Seems inaccurate given I am 12 percent body fat, don’tcha think? My fiance actually is borderline obese given his weight to height ratio. His body fat percentage, most likely even lower than mine.

So, when my body started to show signs of more exhaustion then normal, I initially pushed through and tried to ignore it. And this worked, for a little while. Until it caught up with me and hip chucked me to the ground.
