I never had “baby fever” but in my late 30’s I knew with certainty that I wanted to be a mom. (Fyi, I'm 41 now.) For me, that was all I needed to know to make it a reality but there were some issues I still had to work through, and I was far from ready to plunge into baby making.
My life before the 2020 Coronavirus Pandemic hit the US was literally non-stop travel from December to early March. I definitely saw a lot of people at the airport wearing respirators and disinfecting their seats on the plane, but it really never occurred to me that soon we’d all be in a state of lockdown. The face masks, at the time, seemed a bit much to me. I was conscientiously using hand sanitizer and wiping down my seat too, but I was 100% clueless about what was to come next. And you know what? I’m thankful for my blissful ignorance…because who knows when I’ll be traveling next!
I posted this video I made on instagram today and it all just felt right to say. These are tough times but we are finding our way through it. I'm so proud of my city, my country and all of you. We're going to get through this....
What a story this is! Trust me, I never imagined I would fly across the country and come back so changed. I fly to LA a lot these days, mostly for TV appearances or influencer related events, so when I decided to partner with Pure Farmland and join their influencer retreat, I had somewhat of an idea in my head about how it would go. Part of the retreat experience included going to Food Expo West, which was supposed to happen in Anaheim. But literally 24 hours before I landed in California, it was cancelled due to the outbreak of coronavirus (a.k.a. COVID-19) in the US.

Yes, that’s me at #Blogher20 Health in Los Angeles looking like I have short hair! I did a double take when I saw the shot—is that really ME? The funny thing is I’ve actually been contemplating this exact chop for a while but haven’t been able to pull the trigger. It’s always easier cutting your hair when you’re at the verge of a major life change.
Well…in all fairness, ALL WOMEN are nominated and celebrated annually on March 8th which is International Women’s Day. BUT, every year I call out the women who are currently inspiring me, blowing my mind in real time and motivating me to be better. Thank you to adidas for sponsoring this feature on Mizzfit.com and being a leader in the movement to empower girls and women across the globe. These are the women that ignite the unstoppable feminine power inside of me.
I spent the most amazing long weekend at BREATHLESS PUNTA CANA RESORT & SPA in January of 2020, and took so many photos on the trip that it's taken me this long to narrow them down and share them here with you! Breathless Resorts are located in the most tropical locations in the world (look them up) but the one where I spent 4 incredible days is located in the popular travel destination of Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.
This video really says it all. Thank you so much for taking the time to watch it. I'd still love to go into a bit of detail so you can fully understand why I decided to do this. But first, and most importantly:

In my opinion, it makes sense to go sporty in the Fall and Winter months because it’s so darn cold outside and just easier to get around when you’re not dealing with the hassle of heels. Lately, I’ve been sporting 4 looks inspired by a few key pieces that I got from adidas. Sometimes adding just a few things to your wardrobe can really spruce up what you’ve already got.
