Ahora 10: March

It's March, Daylight Savings Time began this past weekend, and Spring is about two weeks away. Here in New England, it's been a LONG winter. People are ready to see grass again, begin planning for spring and summer gardens, and get outside in air that doesn't hurt their face. 

Here's what's trending in my world these days. 

  • Coaching with Beachbody. I never would have thought I would love coaching as much as I do. I feel like I am making a real difference in people's lives. There is mutual support and accountability. I love sharing my experience with others and watching them make incredible progress. It's the Starfish story in action...making a difference, one starfish at a time. 

  • Want to join me as a participant or as a coach yourself? Message me at for more information or join one of my free accountability challenges here. Right now, there are two. I have a water challenge and a 5k/10k accountability group, as well as the Shakeology-based challenge packs. Make a difference in your own life, or in someone else's. 

  • The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho This has been on my list for a while now and it does not disappoint. 

  • Water. I am participating in my own water challenge group and trying to get in all of my ounces. 
  • Shakeology. I love my morning shake. I have developed some great recipes and I feel great. It's my own version of spring cleaning. 

  • French Pressed coffee. Thanks to Steph at Life According to Steph and a lingering what-if in my own head, I finally gave in and bought this Bodum French Press coffee maker. I'm hoping that it's fabulous and it's something I can bring to Spain. 
  • In the meantime, thanks to Epicurious (and some tips from Steph) I can make the perfect cup. 

  • Dexter. I finally made it past season four and have about a season and a half left. It's dark, it's twisted, and I love it. 
  • Scandal. I think they jumped the shark a bit with this season's opener, but I will stick it out for the rest of this season.   
  • Food Network. Like most, I have my favorites. Some people watch sports or the news or reality television; I watch cooking shows, like The Barefoot Contessa, Chopped, and The Kitchen. 

Pining for...
  • The first pedicure of spring and a new pair of flip flops. 
  • New spring recipes to try. 
  • Tulips.
  • My first in-person yoga class. 
  • Outside walks.

Well, that's about it. 

What's happening ahora in your world?


  1. The Foodnetwork ;) ALWAYS a must ;)

  2. LOL that cartoon about the air hurting your face...

  3. I cannot believe I waited so long to get a french press. I love it! So glad you got one too.

    Love the home, garden and food shows, and trying to drink more water too!

  5. I liked The Alchemist. I know people have strong feelings about it either way but I tended to agree with a lot if his advice/insights throughout.
    I also enjoyed your cartoon. I ask myself every winter why I am living someplace where the air hurts my face?!?

  6. I always enjoy reading your post. They are just so calming. Awesome that you work for Beachbody.

  7. Hi Kelly, congrats on the coaching, it seems to have gotten you really 'pumped', love the water challenge too, followed by a cup of that delicious looking coffee. My daughter uses a coffee press. The starfish sentiment is beautiful. Happy Spring! (and sorry if you get two comments from me, not sure if the first one went through.)

  8. I am glad to hear that coaching is working for you Kelly. :D I've recently seen a few Scandal episodes and decided I need to binge watch it one day.

  9. Oh my goodness, this post spoke right to my heart! I am itching to get a French Press too...I love hearing about your likes, dislikes, your days, etc. I always learn much from you! Thanks much for sharing this. Oh and Dexter bad it's over but the reruns are awesome!

  10. Thank you, Carolann. I bought a coffee grinder too, so I will be able to make my own coarse grind coffee at home. I'll let you know. :-) I never saw Dexter on Showtime, but the seasons on Netflix are a treat. Have a great day!

  11. I just love it, Jazmine. It's such a wonderful feeling. Scandal is a treat...although, I think they jumped the shark a bit this season. We'll see.

  12. Thank you, Peggy. I am loving the journey. Happy Spring to you!

  13. Thank you so much. I am loving the Beachbody journey. All good things. :-) Have a wonderful day.

  14. I can't wait to try it out. I bought a coffee grinder too, so I will try it out this weekend. :-) Thanks again!

  15. It's cute, right? But so true. Thanks for stopping by!

  16. Agreed. I get so many great ideas. :-) Have a great day!

  17. I do too. I get so many great ideas. And more water is always a great idea for me. I feel like I am always dehydrated.

  18. I did too, Jill. Maybe it's the dreamer in me. :-) I thought the cartoon was spot-on, especially after this winter. I can't wait for spring and warm sunny days. Have a good day.

  19. The alchemist is an amazing book. One of my favorites and I love that cartoon you shared! Made me chuckle out loud :D
