OH HELLO, strangers. Things have been a bit messy around here, and by 'here' I mean in my head. I haven't been feeling like myself the last few weeks. Between being really overwhelmed by my to-do list and the anxiety keeping me up most nights, I haven't been able to get in the groove of this new year. I had a nice, little cathartic cry earlier this week and am finally feeling like I'm back in the game today. So instead of focusing on the negative nonsense, here are some things I'm excited about this week: 1. One of my favorite humans is visiting this weekend. 2. Our @BumbleBff #breakupwithbad yoga event is on Saturday at @domastudio916 with juice samples from @vibehealthbar. 3. Bombay Bicycle Club announced that new music is coming this year. 4. I had a really productive financial coaching session with @victorimedia this past weekend. (More on that to come). 5. Tomorrow's Friday. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are you feeling excited by this week? | 📷: @itserikachristine
This should be simple enough, right? Eye contact is an easy way to show how interested, or bored, you are. If I’m interested, I make sure to make as much eye contact as possible. Sure, body language is a good indicator, but eyes are the most telling sign. Not all of us can hold eye contact for long and some people really struggle with making eye contact in general. If you’re someone that struggles with it, LET YOUR DATE KNOW. You may be super interested, but your date might take your inability to make/keep eye contact as a negative. Honesty is the best policy, and being open with your date could help you secure a second date! 💘
☃️☃️☃️ Date Name: Brocaine Found on: Bumble Kiss or miss: Miss Who paid: Brocaine His Intoxication: Beer, shots, cocaine Personality: Enthusiastic, habitual liar Did he look like his profile: Not really About the date: I want to start off by saying up until this date, I’ve never seen cocaine. For realsies. I just have no interest in hard drugs. I 100% love the CBD tincture by Mary’s Medicinals. It’s $100, but so worth it. I go to Rocky Mountain High for it. Now, let’s move forward to one of the weirdest nights I’ve had. I met this guy on bumble, and he invited me to join him and his friends for the Santa Pub Crawl. He and his friends were at his friend’s apartment, so I arrived and he came down to meet me. He immediately told me to lie about how we met to his friends, which I thought was stupid and weird. His friends were so lovely and I’m still friends with one of them, so silver lining. I actually went on a date with another one of his friends I met last night! Anyway, within a minute of being in the apartment, he asks “wanna do drugs with us?” I said no thank you, but thanks for the offer. Out comes the cocaine and his first “I can’t lie to you” confession of the night. He told his friends we met on bumble and everyone’s response was “ok”. So, everyone does drugs and off we go to the first bar where I ended up meeting Mr. Bodybuilding.com from a previous post. Brocaine was so high he couldn’t pay attention to me, he kept walking from group to group of people to talk, and I felt like I was more on a friendship date with his friends. Honestly, do what you want, but whipping out coke on the first “date” is not a good move. Brocaine’s pal paid for our food and drinks, and we decided to hit our next stop for shots.

Happy (early) Birthday to one of the most important people I met over the last year & a half. . Backstory, to fully explain. . Devon & I dated for a few months in the fall of 2017 (thanks @bumble ). . One of the first dates we went on, when I was still working my finance job, she told me about her fitness coaching business. . Me, being super into lifting/nutrition/everythang fitness related was super intrigued by what she did. . Those conversations with her started to put the idea of me potentially doing something in the fitness space, in my head. . Anyways, we stoped dating for a number of reasons. One big one was me being an immature turd & semi-ghosting her. Unacceptable/not cool at all. . She had every reason to not be a fan of me, at all. . But we still (on & off) kept in contact for a few months. And she, despite me blowing her off, was always insanely kind to me. . Last January, right around this time a year ago, I decided to start taking action on my own fitness business. . First person I talked to about it was Devon. And she helped me tremendously. . Told me I should go for it. I used to ask her a buttload of questions & would randomly call her about it. Anddd she would always help me out any way she could. . Hell, she even got coffee with me & we talked about ideas for my business . And she didn’t have to take any of her time to do any of that. Especially after I was a turd to her. . If I hadn’t met Devon, I would have not have started my business. . And therefore, would not be nearly as happy with my life or in a position to work with so many awesome humans on their goals. . Devon, I can’t thank you enough for being an amazing person. Have a great day, homie. You deserve it.
#datingtruths 💘 From the rejections to the dud dates to the number of dating apps, it’s not easy to be out there in the dating world today. I hear it from my clients all the time. They tell me how dating works for “others” but not for them. When I press a little harder, I often find out their dating experience has been nothing more than sporadic. ⠀ ⠀ Well, I have news for you. If you’re going to commit to finding LOVE, you’re going to have be ALL IN. You cannot stop and start, stop and start, when it comes to dating. You have to be 100% committed to it in order for it to work for you. ⠀ ⠀ Willing to face the challenge?

Dating is the worst. Everyone has a horror story. Let's all laugh to keep from crying. Herb & Eatery is hosting a "Worst Date Ever" storytelling contest on February 12th. 6:30pm to 9:30pm We'll collectively cringe, gape, and commiserate over the awkward, the disrespectful, and the weird. And the upside? All but one of us will leave taking comfort in the fact that we didn't have the absolute WORST dating story EVER. To be considered as a storyteller in this contest, pitch a written version of your story to email@example.com. Be sure to include your name and a phone number. Submit your story by February 3rd. If everyone agrees you, indeed, had the "Worst Date Ever", you'll win a dinner for 2 at Herb & Wood (our fancy schmancy sister restaurant) on Valentine's Day. No Outside Drinks Allowed Seating is first come-first served
