One Week: Creating a Life & Business I Love: Tulum, Mexico
Join me on One Week: Creating a Life and Business I love being in Tulum Mexico. My last 20 weeks have passed quickly. To give you insight, I am sharing the week of May 24-30, 2021. The week of May 31-June 6th, I unplugged for the most part. From several angles, I felt like I needed to focus on self-love. At the same time, because of how I automate and scale like a boss, I knew things were continuing to flow and get done!
Moving forward, I will do monthly recaps in a new aligned and simplified format! The next Creating a Life and Business I Love post will be early July for all of June. This will help you look at one post to see the entire month. It will help content strategy, alignment and time to do one post vs. four. I regularly keep up with all activities via my calendar so it's easy to do a monthly recap!
This week everything continued to flow. In May, I didn't watch anything on Netflix for 3 weeks as well!
While creating & traveling, I visited Holistika Tulum, and Mexico City to upgrade my Apple Computer for 2 days. While it may seem crazy I did that, I researched options to trade-in my Mac Air in Guatemala and Mexico iShop and Office Depot stores, as well as flying to the USA for a few days.
I found the easiest, most cost effective, and fastest way to do my trade in (valued at about $300-$400) and get a new computer at this time involved flying to Mexico City's Apple Store at Antara Fashion Store.
I continued to create, transform and inspire during my travel to 7 Continents adventures.

My Routines: Morning, Daily and Weekly
No matter where you are in the world, how you start your day is powerful in every way.
My Sacred 7 Morning and Night Routines with I Am's, Prayer, Positive Music, Bible Reading, Message, Journaling, and Movement sets me up for success.
My daily routine includes shake, tea and tabs with Herbalife Global Nutrition for 7+ years and counting. I lost over 55+ lbs and chose to be alcohol free 5+ years ago. I compete in fitness shows in National Physique Committee Bikini.
'Disclaimer: Average person loses .5 to 1 lb. a week with healthy active lifestyle.
Every week, I outline my week and days, and continue to align actions to my vision.
Every week, things shift depending on faith, feeling and focus.
I outline my Create 7 to help me align actions. Create 7 includes launches, community, scale, clear, media, series, and projects. I practice self-accountability with tools and teams like Click-Up, Focus Matrix, and virtual assistant services. I am in mentorship and coaching currently with Herbalife Nutrition, Super Focus with Tommy Newberry, and Legacy League with Mike Michalowicz.
All along the way, I envision and assess results in community, creators, and creatives.
Walking into the week, I envisioned:
1 Launches & Aligned Actions
2 Community Creation & Focus
3 Series along with Blogs & Shows
4 Creator Focus on Videos & Reels
5 Clearing Emails, Team & Media Items
6 Mastermind & Summit Updates & Shares
7 Assessing Daily & Weekly Results
I am creating a life, business and community I love. I am receiving $3,000 - $25,000 daily-weekly-monthly easily for wellness, media, online & travel God willing with incredible community consistently in May. I am DAP, Supervisor and World Team with Herbalife in May.
This is my focus until I hit it not only once but consistent 3+ months. I will adjust after the third month of consistency to align to annual and legacy goals.
Top Three Priorities
1 Community: Sources and Scaling
2 Creators: Courses, Management
3 Creatives: Media, Series, and Books
I focus consistently on creating and scaling a life & business I love & helping others. This is done by integrating faith, wellness, marketing, business and travel.
Not only that, every online course & live experience includes tips, tools & technology for health, wealth, and business hands-on.

I stayed on point with nutrition, Herbalife and my workout. It amazes me how aligned I am now for years compared to how I used to be!
I packed for my two days in Mexico City to upgrade my Apple in my backpack!
I grabbed a Collectivo to go to Tulum Centro to get an Ado Bus to go to the Cancun Airport. I made sure to give myself more than enough time, and even had time for my second breakfast in town with Chilaquiles with no cheese!)
After I landed in Mexico City, I went straight to the Apple Store at Antara Fashion Mall. My Mac Air warranted a trade in of $350 USD score! I got a new Mac Air with a Latin America keyboard (only slightly different). In addition, I got a discount for being an educator (just ask if you are) and it's online! I made sure I transferred all files via iCloud before going. I asked for the VAT receipt so I may submit for a tax refund when I leave Mexico!
Afterwards, I grabbed some food and went to check-in to my adorable Airbnb. I tried to fly in and out the same day but I would have gotten back to my cabana around 1 am. As a result, for energy and safety purposes, I decided not to.
I am so glad I stayed! The Airbnb I stayed at had a rooftop with a Jacuzzi! I ended my day on the roof in the jacuzzi alone at sunset!
After my Sacred 7 morning, I completed some Instagram Reels. I talked to family from overseas. I ordered groceries to pick up when I arrived in Tulum.
On the way to the airport, I stopped at Chapultepec Park! You may head on over to my IG @katrinajuliafit to see posts! I then headed to the airport!
To get back to Tulum with the timing of my flight, I took an Ado Bus to Playa del Carmen, and then a Collectivo to Tulum Centro, picked up my groceries, and headed back to my Airbnb via Collectivo as well. If you missed what Collectivos are in my prior posts, they are public vans with about 5 to 10 people at most for about $1 each way!
After my Sacred 7, I tuned in to my SuperFocus monthly mastermind with Tommy Newberry. I focused on reviewing emails, as well as automated and delegated tasks (part of which is emails too!)
I woke up Sunday sick and stayed in bed all day.
