4 ways to get your bucket list off the ground

Crossed another one off the bucket list. I have see the water jetpack on Youtube multiple times but had no idea it was open to the public. Jetpack America has a bunch of jetpack and jetboard flight experiences at their locations in Vegas, Newport Beach, and San Diego. We made a special trip down to Vegas just to be able to cross this one off the bucket list and it was definitely worth it.  Warning: you may get addicted. Next time we are in Southern California we will definitely be heading to Jetpack America again. It’s one of the closest feelings you get to being able to fly and a serious adrenaline high – definitely one to add and check off the bucket list.

Below are a few more tips to help you get your bucket list off the ground:

1.  Find a partner in crime.  Its always better to run ideas off of someone, whether it’s your spouse, a friend, or colleague at work. Not only does  getting others involved help you think big when adding to your bucket list, it also helps to have someone to keep you committed and is more of a rush when you accomplish it together and start planning what’s next.

2. Don’t limit your list. If you can dream it, add it. Planning out the bucket list is half the excitement – it’s endless dreaming about the thrills and achievements ahead.

3.  Seize the moment. If the opportunity arises, don’t hesitate to take it.  You never want to think after the opportunity has passed, “I should have done it when I had the chance.” because you never know when you will again.

4. Make it a system. Let your bucket list become a lifestyle, not just a series of goals. Enjoy the systems you put in place to achieve each goal, not just the accomplishment itself. The planning, excitement, feelings, and rush you experience when it all starts to come together is the best part.

Ways to Keep Fit On the Go






When it comes to those days where you on the go and can’t find get your normal workout in, stay fit with just a few simple steps that are easy to remember:

1.  Always have water in hand.  Reaching that gallon of water every day is important and easy to do if you space it out through the day. Keep your water bottle filled up all day or throw a couple extra bottles in your car to make sure you have enough to hit that gallon by the end of the day.

2. Pack your own snacks.  If you leave without your own snacks for the day who knows what you’ll end up munching on. Stick to your goals and pack the same snacks you would have if you were at home. My daily snack?  2 apples, 2 oranges, and a bag of wheat thins.

3. Bring your duffel. Even if you won’t have time to hit the gym, still throw your duffel bag in the car. When you get home at night it’s a good reminder to restock again in the morning before you head out for another busy day.

4 Ways to Break Out Of Your Monotonous Weekly Work Routine









With it hitting the 70s last week here in Utah I think we are all getting a little bit of that spring fever. I’m breaking out the short sleeve shirts and more of my lighter layers. I got this button down from Express and also got this blue button – they are both really soft and comfortable. Their jeans are one of my favorites too. They have a little stretch so they are great for airport style for your upcoming spring break getaway or for casual Fridays at the office.

When it gets so nice outside it seems like there’s nothing worse than being stuck at work or in the office. I always like to switch things up so below are 4 cool ways to break the monotony of your weekly work routine.

  1. Meet your girl for lunch – Christine and I both work a lot so when we can, we try to coordinate the times we break for lunch so we can meet up at our favorite lunch spot or try a cool new restaurant downtown. It’s a great excuse to get out of the office and spend some time with your girl.
  2. Catch a matinee – When you have a couple meetings get canceled or a have a few hours open up after lunch, head to a movie theatre and catch a matinee for that movie you’ve been wanting to see. Nothing will break up a monotonous work day like a good movie.
  3. Office pranks – You don’t have to escape the office to break up your typical 9-5 work day. Find a harmless way to pull a prank and give everybody a good laugh – it’s a great way to get over that afternoon slump.
  4. Get your workout in – Bring your workout gear to the office and sneak in a run or a trip to the gym on your lunch break. Get you adrenaline pumping to keep you sharp for the rest of the afternoon.

What are some of your favorite ways to break up the monotony of the work week?
