If you know me at all, you know that I love coaching. All kinds of coaching-wellness, fitness, running, teaching, goal setting, financial, gratitude and any kind of personal development. PLEASE DO NOT take this as, look at her, she has it all together. NONE of us have it all together, the only thing we can do is to try to be better each day than we were the day before.

I have decided to take my coaching to the next level and share what I have found as useful to myself with others. Last Sunday, I hosted a virtual vision board class using Zoom. I advertised it on social media and had a few takers. We ended up with a small, intimate group and I am super excited to watch the group crush their goals during March!

We went through a process of narrowing down our ideas and then focusing on a couple of areas for March. Each participant ended the 45 minute class with a created vision board for the month of March and ready to take on March like a lion! Then we shared pictures of our vision boards with each other and will help to hold each other accountable for the month of March. Here is my vision board I made for the month..

Do you create vision boards? Have you ever made a vision board for each month, rather than planning for the entire year?

This is an old post, but one that people ask me about often! Hope you enjoy it!

I love this quote, it is so true the more organized I am on Sunday the better week I have. It is a great day to reflect, plan, and thank the good Lord for the beautiful life we have been blessed with. Remember how I mentioned the other day my new found love for Aromas Coffee Bar and their skinny vanilla chai tea? Since I only go to Charles City twice a week I had been experimenting with different kinds of chai tea bags and found nothing that worked.  🙁  So, I did what every 30's something woman would do...scoured Pinterest! I found quite a few recipes, but none that I loved.  This weekend I concocted my own skinny vanilla chai tea!!! It comes nowhere near to Aaromas, but it is probably as close as I will get at home.  It made a large Tupperware full and will probably last a few weeks, well maybe, all four of us have really been loving it!  The recipe that I came up with is at the bottom of this post.

The mixture looks like this, you can run it through a food processor until it is a fine powder.

A little game of UNO and some more skinny vanilla chai tea after supper!

SCHMITT'S SKINNY VANILLA CHAI TEA

- 1 Cup Non Dairy Creamer

- 1 Cup Non Dairy Vanilla Creamer

-1 Cup Non Dairy Powdered Milk

- 1 1/2 Cups Instant Tea, unsweetened

- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

- 2 teaspoons ground ginger

- 1 teaspoon ground cloves

- 1 teaspoon nutmeg

-1 teaspoon all spice

- 1 teaspoon of cardamom

- 3/4 cup of sugar

Mix all powdered ingredients together in a Tupperware container.  You will add 2 Tablespoons to 8 oz. of water or hot milk.  To make this skinny you will need to use skim milk or almond milk.  I like to heat the almond milk or milk to 145 degrees.  That makes the perfect drink for our family!  Next time I am going to experiment with less sugar and I am going to keep track of how many drinks this mixture makes. I am guessing it will last at least a couple of weeks in a tightly stored container.  It would make a great gift to give someone in a pint jar with the directions to make a nice cup!

Do you like to make things homemade?

Have you ever made homemade do it yourself gifts?
