I’m trying something new this year and thought I’d share - - I’m counting my workouts completed for 2019💪🏼🏋🏼♀️💪🏼Tonight I hit workout #5!! My first goal is to get to workout #50, and when that happens I’ll celebrate by purchasing my first @thirdlove bra 🥰 (This has been on my radar for a while!) After that, I’m aiming for 100 workouts and when I do I am buying myself a one hour full body massage 💆 These measurable goals are keeping me motivated to stay movin’! 45 to go until I hit my first mark 👊🏼👊🏼👊🏼
When Sunday meal prep REALLY pays off 👏🏼👏🏼Swipe to see “meal prep —> real life desk breakfast”🤣🥚😍
Cooked up a huge batch of Whole30 compliant Spicy Sausage Egg Muffins courtesy of @theskinnyishdish - the only modification I made was adding spinach for some green action! These heat up really well and all you need is some @franksredhot and you’re 👌🏼
(What is it about Sunday evenings leading to a heavy dose of vulnerability?..)💫 #
Last week in therapy, we talked about self worth and self confidence. “Can you have one without the other?” Over the last couple of months I have seen a spike on my scale..which has impacted my self confidence. Even with some lower than usual self confidence, I looked my therapist in the eye and told her that my SELF WORTH hasn’t diminished just because I’m feeling less confident right now. The way I see it..confidence can be a sliding scale depending on a lot of different factors (mood, environment, people we surround ourselves with, etc) but I don’t think our self worth really ever waivers. So if you’re feeling a little less confident than usual right now, please don’t lose heart - self worth is dependent on solely you. Keep your head up. 💡💛✨
Is there anything better than coffee chats? This morning after an E A R L Y work event, a dear friend/co worker and I stopped over to her place for some fresh brewed coffee.
We talked life, love, work, and @whole30. “LLWW”?😂 Happy happy Friday friends - reminder that connection and friendships are important, in any season of your life and if you can grow them over good coffee that’s just a nice bonus 🙂☕️✴️
Slightly modified version of @therealfoodrds Waldorf Chicken Salad! The only changes I made were omitting red onion, forgetting the damn walnuts and adding an avocado 😂Be sure to check out @therealfoodrds this week on their @whole30recipes take over! I am so excited- these two are some of my favorite @whole30 recipe developers! Anyway, happy day 7 whole30ers and happy day 1 to me! 🎈💃🏼🎊
My F A V O R I T E, go to, tried and true @whole30 dinner is this - oven roasted salmon, sweet potato wedges and brussel sprouts (TONIGHT I AIR FRIED THEM AND 🎊!!) Feeling ready for day 1 tomorrow ☺️
My 5th round of @WHOLE30 may be starting tomorrow but that doesn’t mean I can’t get a jump start on all the fun 🤣
Two pork sausage patties, a couple eggs, mashed avo and a clementine is Sunday brunch 😋
Bring on 2019 🥳✨🎉
2018 taught me the importance of being soft. Letting my walls down and embracing openness. I learned that being vulnerable is brave, not weak.
May 2019 be a year of standing tall, finding an equilibrium, and withstanding tough times with firm feet on the ground. This year I really want to be intentional about putting less weight on the things that really don’t matter..and lean into the things that really do. Ready for the next 365 days to teach me more about myself than ever before. 💡
Sometimes I don’t think I give myself enough credit..Looking at these “Top Nine” photos + remembering how much it meant in that moment to be able to post those photos and share my accomplishments with you all..it really helps me realize how far I’ve come. It’s amazing the perspective you can gain by looking back.
Thank you for sticking with me this year. Thanks for supporting me and believing in me, even when I doubt myself. Looking forward to a new year - filled with new opportunities to crush some new goals. 💛
MY HEART IS SO HAPPY! This year I’ve met so many incredible friends through this insta community. Today? Just wow. Wow wow wow- Megan I feel like I’ve known you for years! It was so amazing grabbing lunch with you and laughing over queso + coffee (apparently this combo is an Austin thing?🤣)
I’ve said it a million times but I will happily say it again - reach out to others! Be present in this insta community and embrace it. I’d have never meet the awesome girls I get to call my dear friends other wise. Megan - you’re a light in this world. Thanks for being my (insta made REAL LIFE) friend. Today is a good day.💛🤸🏼♀️💛
Christmas Eve with the fam, the rest of the year with my man🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰 (didn’t mean for this to rhyme but rollin with it anyway 🤣) .
Flyin’ down to Austin this morning and still in full holiday spirit (zoom in to see my rad candy cane christmas socks😉).. MERRY CHRISTMAS FRIENDS❤️🎄✈️🧳
When left-over lunch is almost better than last nights dinner! @mulayssausage bratwurst, brussels and a baked sweet potato. All @whole30 compliant and 1000% hit the spot 😋Happy Tuesday, friends!
Here’s to ‘endless boundless grace’ + to tomorrow. To growth + faith (in ourselves and in each)💗
Quite literally thew together a whole30 compliant beef + broccoli #takeoutfakeout tonight!
Cooked up some skirt steak on the stove, oven cooked some week old broccoli and microwaved some frozen cauli rice 😬The sauce was really just shit I had around my cabinet/fridge..coconut aminos, garlic hot sauce, red wine vinegar and some rice vinegar. Batta bing batta boom 💥
Repeat after me “whole30 meals don’t have to be complicated”
That is the one piece of advice I’d give to anyone looking to commit to the @whole30 - don’t make things harder on yourself. Sometimes simple meals fit the bill. This lunch is just chicken + bell peppers and some oven roasted red potatoes with (THE BEST) @sirkensingtons pizza ranch. It’s not an earth shattering “recipe” and it didn’t take me hours to cook yesterday. But it’s #whole30compliant and really tasty! Win win!😊
