I am learning to appreciate and enjoy my food because let’s be honest, most people in our world don’t have access to rich, healthy, nourishing foods. 🥗 We are so rich, y’all, we have 2 cars, a house, and the knowledge to eat healthy food that fuels our body! That’s richer than 99% of the world! 😳 So God is showing me instead of rushing and eating my food fast, I should chew longer, savor the food, enjoy cooking it, and be super grateful for being able to nourish and fuel my family well. 🙌🏻💪🏻🧠 We are the sickest country in the world, we spend the most money on healthcare in the world but still the sickest 🧐☹️ So let’s start with diet. Honestly how many Drs first ask what you eat? I bet 9/10 don’t, but the root cause starts with food. Choose whole, nutrient dense food Have fat, veggies, protein on your plate. It’s not just what but how you eat, eat and he’s slowly being thankful for that food. And animal died and a farmer spent time and money to grow that food. #lchfpaleo #nourishedmama #mindfuleats #fuelupbuttercup #balancedlife #paleo #jerf #wholefoodsforkids #lchfathlete #fitnaturalmom

Spelt Raspberry & White Chocolate Muffins . . When I shared these on my stories yesterday I had a few people message me and ask me if they were healthy. I thought to myself, well yes kind of, except the choc chips.. but what does healthy really mean? Low calorie? Low fat? High fat? Low sugar? No gluten? Vegan? A perfect balance of macros? . . Healthy is balance of good nutrients, and while these do contain conventional choc chips, approx 1 TBS per muffin, they are refined sugar free only sweetened with natural honey, I used spelt flour which is kinder on our gut and contains nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and essential organic compounds that other cereals and forms of wheat don’t contain. I love using spelt flour as a replacement for conventional flours, however you will notice a difference in texture. . . INGREDIENTS . 1¾ spelt flour or traditional flour 1 teaspoon baking powder ½ teaspoon baking soda ⅓ cup melted coconut oil or extra-virgin olive oil ½ cup honey or maple syrup 2 eggs, preferably at room temperature 1 cup plain Greek yogurt, I used @yoproau 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1 1/2 cups frozen raspberries 3/4 cup white choc chips. METHOD . Preheat the oven to 170c grease a 12 cup muffin tin or line with muffin moulds. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda. Mix well with a whisk. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the oil and honey or maple syrup and beat together with a whisk. Add the eggs and beat well, then add the yogurt and vanilla. Mix well. (If the coconut oil solidifies in contact with cold ingredients, gently warm the mixture in the microwave in 15 seconds. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix with a big spoon, just until combined (a few lumps are ok). Gently fold the raspberries and 1 cup choc chips into the batter. The mixture will be thick, but don’t worry. Divide the batter evenly between the 12 muffin cups. Bake the muffins for 22 to 24 minutes, or until the muffins are golden and when inserted with a skewer come out clean. Place the muffins on a wire rack to cool. Recipe via cookie and Kate

Running 🏃‍♀️ into the week like.... T minus 5 days until I am on a Sandy Beach 🏖 in Mexico! I am so excited to sit back and relax, read a good book and sip a few drinks! Oh wait I have two small children there will be no relaxing, reading a book but I think I can manage to squeeze in the drinks! Excited that someone else will be cooking my meals and making my bed! Do you like to vacation in the snow or to warm tropical destinations! I am definitely a sand and sun kind of gal! #workoutfromhome #workingmoms #workingoutathome #runningmom #runningmums #runningmotivation #lift4 #hittraining #fitpreneur #momof2 #fitat43 #fitmomof2 #fitmomoftwo #fitfromhome #coachlife #mombosses #cabosanlucasmexico #vacation🌴 #stylelife #lifestylebydesign #balancedlife #fitforhealth #fitforthem

Its been almost 2 weeks since I’ve made a post 😬 I’ve basically let my self care fall to the wayside. The past 2 weeks, I felt like I was always on the go (and I’ve been having more stomach issues than usual) and kind of lost touch with myself. Things have finally calmed down and I’ve dedicated this week to getting my shit back together. I’m on day 2 of @thejourneyjunkie Ignite Your Power program, and I’m not going to lie....it’s kicking my ass and I’m sore in places I haven’t been sore in a long time 😂 My plan for the week is to find my way back into a routine - mind, body, & spirit. 🤷🏼‍♀️

Ayer investigué un poco sobre las las principales causas de muerte en Mexico y la verdad me asusté: 🔻Enfermedades endócrinas y metabólicas: 114,846* 🔻Enfermedades isquémicas del corazón: 97,743* *Estos números son del 2016, y equivalen al 16.7% y 14.3% respectivamente, contra los porcentajes del 98 que fueron el 10.4% y 9.6% —— Yo se que no soy ningún médico, ni nutriologa. Pero se que tampoco me dejarán mentir, si les digo que la forma más eficiente para no ser parte de este porcentaje es la prevención, cuidar lo que comemos nuestro estilo de vida. Se dice muy fácil, y se que no lo es. —— Pasar por una orden de tacos en la mañana, un starbucks, o una hamburguesa o torta en la tarde, es muuuy práctico. Y aunque pueda sonar económico de entrada (excepto el starbucks), a la larga es CARÍSIMO. ¿Por que? Por como se te pueden llegar a disparar tus niveles de azúcar y colesterol. Entonces pasar a ser de los porcentajes que mostré es muuuy fácil. Pero también se que tampoco es muy fácil comer balanceadamente día con día. Hoy todo es caro y nos gusta la buena vida, así que hay que trabajar y mucho. Estos aceleres hacen que solo nos de tiempo para desayunar un jugo un café y un pan, comer rápido si es que alcanzamos, y cenar como si no hubiera mañana porque no comimos en todo el día. ¿A cuantos no les pasa esto? Es importante darnos el tiempo de cuidarnos ahora que tenemos tiempo. Porque puede llegar un día en donde realmente ya NO TENGAMOS ESE TIEMPO. Y sea demasiado tarde... —— A veces hay cambios tan simples como acompañar la comida con agua natural en lugar de refresco, limonada o jamaica; usar menos sal, menos aceite y si usan que sea de coco... bueno son cambios pequeños que hacen una diferencia abismal. Desayunen bien Coman un snack de media mañana, manzana, almendras, papaya... Coman bien, verduras, proteína, carbohidrato integral Otro snack de media tarde, pepino, zanahoria o jicama Cenen bien, no demasiado. Que sus tres comidas tengan de los tres grupos. Y ante todo AGUA. Cuídense no sean parte de la cifra. #healthylifestyle #balanceddiet #balancedlife #ilovemylife #perfectbody #myvivri #vivrisocialtrend #vivri #vivrilifestyle

Finally starting to hang stuff on the walls. Decided that since we are in our grownup home I'd take the time do it right. Even with all the prep, measuring and leveling it still didn't turn out straight and I ended up with extra holes 🤦 Next time I'm just eyeballing it. The kids requested most of the art in their room. I worry it may be a bit much, but they love it. They're proud of their work 👨‍🎨👩‍🎨🎨

Ohh baby I am so happy with how these donuts turned out!!! Using @minimalistbaker recipe, I wanted to try out aquafaba in baking so I made these along with brownie cookies which were also pretty good!! I love the feeling when you make something new and it turns out well on the first go 💃🏽🍩 I think baking and cooking is a love language 😻

Head in the clouds ☁️ 😌 I have been feeling extra euphoric today. ▫️ Do you enjoy flying? ▫️ For me, it never becomes routine. I treasure every opportunity to get on a plane, because in most cases it means an adventure. It means I’m about to see the place I haven’t seen and meet the people I haven’t met before. Exciting, eh? ▫️ Not unlike our bodies, our minds need exercise. Only by getting out of our comfort zone and through new experiences we can grow as a person. ▫️ Get out there this week. Do something you haven’t done before. You will not regret it, I promise 🖤 . . . . . . . . . . . . #goodmoodfood #letsbehealthy #vibrantfood #cleaneatingdiet #eatforhealth #fuelyourbody #eatforfuel #healthyaf #healthyandhappy #happygut #foodvibes #nourishyourbody #pregnantaf #healthymomma #nutritiontips #diettips #ketofriendly #californiafoodie #coloradofoodie #portlandfoodie #talkhealthytome #nutritioncoach #healthcoaching #healthcoach #orlandofoodie #healthyjourney #healthymindhealthybody #healthymindset #loveyourbody #balancedlife

TIME...it’s the #1 thing that holds so many of us back from working out. I totally get it!! We are all so busy with our jobs, kids, vacations, and life in general! Myself included...BUT give me a workout program that has me doing 30 minute workouts, 4 days a week & allows me to still have a glass of 🍷 and 🍦with my kids?!? I’m IN! • Regardless of how busy we are, we can all find 2-3 hours a week to do something good for our body & mind. Today I did this 20 minute arm/shoulder workout in my living room before the kids even rolled out of bed. I worked up a sweat, burned calories and my core and arms were on 🔥I can only imagine how awesome the full 30 minute workouts are going to be when they are released next month! • If you are looking for a summer workout program, THIS is it! What I love is that you get to mold this program around your life, NOT the other way around. With 3 rest days, you will have time to do other things you love like hiking, swimming, taking a yoga class, running, or just spending more time with your friends & family! It’s totally doable for your busy summer schedule. Plus there’s a flexible nutrition plan that’s sustainable & not super restrictive, so you’re not depriving yourself. I don’t know about you, but I need balance in the summer. Yes I have goals, but I want to enjoy my vacations, go out to dinner and eat s’mores every once in a while! Am I right?!? • Who is ready to join me? Comment below with your favorite summer emoji, message me, or fill out the short form in my bio for more info!

The beautiful #sofialoren 1964

It takes a village. . I love weddings, because you get to see all the people who have poured into the couple come together to celebrate. While I was visiting my hometown I got to attend the wedding of two friends I’ve known my whole life, which was made even sweeter because the majority of the guests were people who I also know and have grown up with. . And while the ceremony was beautiful, the bride stunning, and the cake delicious, my favorite part happened after the bride and groom left. The cleanup. . Sounds weird, I know. But there’s just something so powerful about watching friends and family take off their fancy shoes, tie up their pretty hair, and start stacking chairs and sweeping floors. It’s the unseen stuff—the sweat and laughter—that makes a home and celebrates relationships. . We weren’t meant to do this life alone. And while we like to think we’re self-sufficient, it takes a whole lot of people coming around us to really make this life whole. . It takes those friends who silently make sure there are leftovers for the mother of the bride because she hasn’t eaten all day. The dates of the wedding party who don’t know anyone but jump in to help anyway. The parents who have watched their own children grow up and know exactly what to say and when to make a joke. . As we helped clean up I watched as different pieces of decoration were returned to their various owners, because so many had lent whatever they had to make the bride’s dream a reality. And I was reminded of my own wedding, where the same thing happened and so many people sacrificed their time and gave joyfully to serve us. . And as I watched people I’ve known for as long as I can remember perform the same motions they did at my wedding — the same motions they’ve performed at so many weddings, baby showers, and funerals — I was reminded that community is truly one of the greatest gifts the Lord has given us, and we need every bit of it. We need a village.

My mom made this for me once before and I LOVED it, so back by popular demand, butternut squash spirals with garlic, butter, and lemon juice. Topped with chicken from the air fryer. 🍗😍✨ I went to #zumba tonight followed by 30 minutes of #yoga. I left the yoga class 30 minutes early because my body wasn’t feeling comfortable... Maybe too much work for one night. But zumba was BOMB. 🔥 . . . . #health #healthyeating #fit #mfp #fitlife #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #fitness #lifestylechange #workout #losingweight #fitjourney #accountability #consistency #goals #healthylifestyle #fitnessgoals #nutrition #healthjourney #progress #fitlifestyle #activelife #activelifestyle #nonscalevictory #hardworkpaysoff #crunchgym #balance #balancedlife

Every physical and spiritual fitness regimen starts with a decision first and then a tangible action that aligns with our decisions. We can’t just continue to digest and ravish our food (physical and spiritual) down unconsciously. We must access unrushed time and be aware of our food selections so that we get all the nutrients needed. Today, I have decided to not just digest my good ole’ natural homemade cooked beans and seasoned baked zucchini to stay alive physically, but also keeping an ongoing stream of God’s Words from my mouth is what ultimately keeps all 3/3rds of me strong all throughout the day. Yes, and I am aware that throughout the day we may not all be able to listen to God’s Word and decree what He has said, but we can sure meditate aka continuously ponder upon what we have read and heard until an opportune time comes to build and keep our faith up. Just sayin’... #getyourfaithup #heathtalk #beingthelife #balancedlife #balancedliving #shifttoday #bewell #spiritsoulbody #lifegroup #chooselife

BACK & BETTER Alright y’all I took a break from posting on here because I was honestly just feeling defeated and like I couldn’t get back on track. Now I realize that posting here has kept me motivated and held me accountable, so here I am!!! This week I am hitting it hard with eating right and the gym because I am DETERMINED to get back into a healthy mindset and healthy body. Had a killer full-body workout today and just had my last meal (ground turkey, lettuce, avocado, & a side of broccoli). We’re going to be getting quite a bit of rain this week, but I’m not going to let that keep me from my workouts! Be on the lookout for my posts, I’ll be posting my workouts & some meals! Don’t let your discouragement or lack of progress keep you don’t, y’all. I know it’s cliche but this is the truth: the comeback is bigger than the setback! So I’m going to keep working hard and get my determination and positive mentality back. Hope y’all had a great workout today and are kicking ass with whatever your regimen is👍🏻💪🏼 #fitnessfollowers #fitnessfollowback #fitness #fit #fitnessfam #fitfam #fitnesslife #fitlife #healthyliving #screwthescale #fitnessgirl #fitspo #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #weightlossjourney #8020lifestyle #balanceddiet #balancedlife #cleaneating #fitnessfreaks #fitnessaddict #goldsgym

nothing beats a refreshing summer salad!

One eye open anytime my suitcase is out! Packing away (aka over-packing) for my coach conference that I leave for on Wednesday! And y’all... I am SO excited! 🤗. • Four days of trainings, workshops, live workouts with my fave trainers, brunches, dinners, cocktails, and just plain FUN with my sisterhood tribe!! I cannot wait! • It’s crazy to think that if it weren’t for this community I wouldn’t know any of these incredible women. Women that spend every single day pouring themselves into the lives of others. Women that pour into me and me into them. They’re some of my greatest friends and I just can’t think of what this life would be without them! • And yes... we all met because of social media! 🤣. But how amazing?! When you find like-minded goal oriented people who share the same vision for this life that you do, you don’t let them go! • So here’s to over-packing my life away and the countdown to seeing all of my sisters and sharing in so many memories and fun this week/weekend!! I may not sleep the next 3 days like a kid waiting for Christmas morning! • Are you wondering what this coaching this is all about? How to become a part of this community of strong, empowering women? Our team has an open-ended sneak peak into this sisterhood happening over on FB and I’d love to add you in to just check it out, look around, and see with your own eyes what I get the pleasure of doing every single day! Message me and I’ll add you in! • Xoxo 😘

Comin’ at ya with some meatless Monday inspiration, with his black bean and sweet potato skillet. • Eating meatless doesn’t have to be complicated, and it can be super delicious. • If you’re looking to try some meatless meals, consider these tips: • 1. Always include a source of protein. Try beans, lentils, soy or tofu, seeds, nuts, eggs, or whole grains.🥜 • 2. Use spices and herbs to add flavours that you know you and your family will enjoy.🌱 • 3. Try to incorporate a source of iron, such as legumes, fortified pasta, quinoa or dark green vegetables.🍃 • 4. Be open to trying new things. Don’t knock it ‘til you try it, you might surprise yourself!🤷🏼‍♀️ • 5. If you’re not sure where to start, follow a simple recipe (like this one, coming soon)!🍽 • ❓I’d like to know, what’s your favourite meatless meal❓Let me know in the comments! • • • #lovefullyfuelsimply #foodfuel #wholefoodplantbased #plantbasedprotein #plantbasedfoods #plantbasednutrition #vegandinner #blackbeans #plantprotein #nutritiousanddelicious #nutritionfacts #nutritiontips #nutritionmatters #whatimeating #inmykitchen #goodmoodfood #foodiefood #foodieforlife #nutritionnerd #rd2be #balancedeating #balancedfood #allaboutbalance #balancedlife #wellnesswednesday #lifeofwellness #wellnesstips #meatlessmonday #empoweredwellness

So life happened. Stressful life stuff like packing, moving, etc. And when life gets stressful, the first thing I sacrifice is exercise - the thing that my mind and body need most. Self care falls to the wayside, and it’s a slippery slope for me. Today I knew I needed to fight hard to start the climb uphill...so I changed things up a bit and took my workout outside (also because my workout space has been taken over by boxes). It was the hardest 28 minutes of my day but it felt good to sweat again. • • • #balancedaf #slipperyslope #fallingoffthewagon #bbgmoms #bbg #findingbalance #hardaf #thesmallthings #sweatonceaday #balancedlife #momsonamission #fitlife #healthylifestyle #itsthejourney #journeytobalance

I think the Lord answers our struggles before we can even figure out what’s really bothering us. I have not been pleasant to anyone the last 3 days. I’m shocked at how I talked to Liam. I was still seeing Father’s Day posts today and realized I didn’t post one of my Dad because honestly, it would take too long to search for one from over 10 years ago. That hurts. And it sucks. Liam was working on this graphic tonight for me and I nearly burst into tears. God knows what’s really going on. Go to him first. Even when it doesn’t make sense to.

TO DO OR NOT TO DO ... A common #parentingskills discussion in my practice is whether it is healthy for children to do extra-curricular activities. This is a tricky question, as every child and family are different. I have noticed that some parents seem to feel pressure to fully occupy their children with sports, music, dance, languages, coaching, art etc. Although usually well intentioned, too many activities can contribute to individual & familial stress. Particularly, if combined with inadequate sleep or a poor diet. As parents, it is pivotal to reflect upon what your child REALLY needs and consider their wants and preferences. Over scheduling or forcing children to do activities that they hate can cause children to feel exhausted, anxious, depressed and unheard. Sadly, this contributes to the growth of mental health problems in children & adolescents, leading to adult psychological issues. Unfortunately, many children are overdoing extracurricular activities, for many reasons including parental FOMO, parental aspirations and child enthusiasm. I feel concerned looking at the hectic schedules of some busy kids, particularly when you consider that they need time to socialise, play, do nothing, sleep properly, have family time & do homework. Eg. I hear many stories of depressed primary school children who are forced to do coaching college for chunks of their school holidays & after school, detrimentally impacting their social development and mental health. Balance is pivotal for wellbeing, as are opportunities for new experiences, mastery and stimulation. As parents, we need have to remember that kids rely on us to guide them in this way, so that they can develop healthy self esteem, good self care habits and confidence. #consciousparenting #balancedlife #extracurricular #mindfulparenting #emotioncoaching #raisingkids #dailyparenting #parentingadvice #instaparenting #parenthood #mentalhealth #psychologistsydney #psychology #psychologically #kidsmatter #parenthacks #selfesteemboost #selfcare #lifebalance #mentalwellness #mentalwellbeing #dailyinspiration

Never miss a Monday! Today didn’t go as planned and I could have skipped this workout but I didn’t. You don’t get results and you don’t crush your goals with excuses, you do it by sucking it up and getting shit done no matter what. We all have busy schedules and busy lives. Being busy isn’t an excuse, get it done. I’m leaving my house at 4:45 tomorrow and that’s effing early, so getting everything done today is crucial to make my early morning tomorrow go smoothly. Long work day done. Workout done. Time to pack, finish up some last minute chores and spend the last bit of quality time with my hubs and pup before I leave them for a week. . . . . . #chooseyourhard #healthylifehappywife #balancedlife #wheresthewine #truthbombs #sweateveryday #lifeishard #getmotivated #determinationchallenge #committobefit #excusesdontwin #engaged #wifetobe #bride #futurewifey #sweatingforthewedding #sweatingforlife #maketheshift #sweatingforthewedding #almostamrs #nocarbsishard #dohardthings #challengeyourself #donttalkshift #letsgetfittogether

What does balance mean to you? Think a little on this and please let me know because I’m always looking to enhance the balance of my life! ✨ What balance means to me is a give and take by taking the middle path. Google “middle path” to get a better understanding of what I mean. The current energy is creating the opportunity for us to balance the masculine and feminine ways of being within each of us. The masculine energy is the drive, power and force we apply to things in life. The feminine is the receptive, open, allowing side of us. I seek balance is my life by pushing myself towards goals in my career, exercise and stepping outside of my comfort zone to be my authentic self. I relax into taking time for rest, relaxation in nature, and listening for the signs that the Universe sends me. For a more tangible example, I drink green juice, bulletproof coffee and wine. I work out with a training lifting weights and I take days off from working out. I work hard on my work projects, but take time away from the computer to recharge. Life can be whatever you make it to be. You have the power to create balance in your life. What does balance look like for you? Beautiful image by @anelisesalvodesignco

Can’t remember the last time I used a vending machine 😅 today’s craziness had some surprises which meant I couldn’t go home when planned and am stuck without enough food 🤯 but compromises like this are TOTALLY worth it and doable on a healthy lifestyle! 👍🏻 younger Sam might’ve obsessed about the carbs or sodium of these, but I’m fueling as best as I can to do the work before me 🎻 not even health coaches stick to meal plans perfectly! 🙈 • • • • • Anxiety and exhaustion have been with me a lot today... but I don’t care if I’m a broken record... God’s grace is always enough, and joy in Him is my strength 💪🏻💕

Life is a balancing act. Without the proper form and practice you may never find it....I tell this to myself all the time and I still feel like I’m leaning more to one side then the other. Finding balance is not always easy, especially lately. I think I’m gonna need to rebalance myself with a break from the hustle. Maybe some time off to somewhere far far away. Any else struggling with balance? #stabilitytraining #balancedlife

Crazy to think 1 year ago today I graduated from @cal_poly and now I’m 1 week away from graduating my @tulaneu dietetic internship🤯 🎓5 years of studying nutrition is no joke, I am ready to be an RD🌱 #lululentil #calpoly #calpolyproud

BALANCE • balance is tough, whether you’re talking balancing in yoga or just balancing your time. Some days you have it and some days you don’t. It is tough. Balance is something I have really been reflecting on lately- where have I been putting my time and where am I lacking? One area that I know I need to spend more time is with friends. We were made for relationships, and without them it can leave us feeling empty. It can be hard putting time and effort into relationships because let’s face it, friendships can be messy and inconvenient- but more importantly they are necessary for a well balanced life. As much as I would love spending all my time with my husband, I know that having other friendships are important and healthy for myself and my family. What areas of life are you lacking or spending too much time? #balancedlife #healthy #womanofgod #friends #goals

Fabulous start to the day with a 20min yoga sequence to stretch out my tight muscles and to set the right intentions for the day. . . . True yoga is not about the shape of your body, but the shape of your life. Yoga is not to be performed; yoga is to be lived. Yoga doesn’t care about what you have been; yoga cares about the person you are becoming. Yoga is designed for a vast and profound purpose, and for it to be truly called yoga, its essence must be embodied. . . . #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #yogaquote #wisdom #healthyliving #healthylifestyle #healthychoices #livinglifetothefullest #balance #balancedlife #healthy #fitspiration

When I realized I don’t have to follow “the rules,” and I could pursue my own version of happiness is when things started to click and the daily stressors dissipated. My success doesn’t necessarily look like anyone else’s...and that’s perfect because if you are living by someone’s standards you will always feel stressed, overwhelmed and depressed...no matter how successful you are. STOP doing that! . #setyourstandards #myrules #success

I used to think exercise was a chore. I used to think I had to eat less calories than I burned every single day. I used to think that if I didn’t work out, anything I ate would automatically put me in a caloric surplus & make me gain weight. I used to use cardio as a punishment for eating "too much" or indulging in "bad" foods. I used to have a calories in vs calories out mindset. I used to OBSESS over the numbers. Calories eaten. Calories burned. What the scale said. How many miles I ran. How many minutes I exercised. How many grams of protein I was consuming. IT WAS EXHAUSTING. I was miserable. I needed a change. I decided to switch to intuitive eating. Overnight. I put the food scale away. I deleted my food tracking app. I started to eat what my body was craving. I stopped labeling foods as "good" or "bad." I started taking rest days. I stopped feeling guilty for not exercising for 1-2 hours per day. I stopped counting calories. I started checking labels for ingredients instead of macros. I stopped eating half my weight in protein. I started eating more plants & less processed foods. ✨ I STOPPED obsessing… ✨ I STARTED living. I refuse to let my life revolve around food & exercise & calorie shaming anymore. These days: I don’t feel guilty for taking a day off or doing a low intensity form of exercise. I don’t beat myself up over "indulging" in a treat. I’m doing workouts that make me FEEL GOOD. I’m eating things that make my body & my mind HAPPY. I feel better in my own skin than I ever have before. I’ve finally found balance. I’ve created a truly healthy L I F E S T Y L E for myself. & DAYUM does it feel good.

This salad was SO freaking good💚. Spring mix, cucumbers, slices of avocado, and chicken. By the the way- if you have any tips on how to cut an avocado share them with me because I just kind of cut it up because it intimated me 🙈.

I did a thing today... A thing I (honestly) have not done in a while. . I chose a salad over house-made chips! 😯 (And I only ate half the bun!) . With the Browns in town... eating has NOT been the healthiest... or in the best portions. But... it was only a few days.. and now I'm ready to get back on track! (Right before heading out of town for our annual coach summit! Haha) . Moral of the story.. this is a lifestyle.. not diet! It includes sweets, carbs, and BALANCE! Not every meal is perfect. I dont always eat enough veggies. The closer we get to the wedding, the more conscious I will be (starting now!) Its a lifestyle I can travel with. It's a lifestyle I can party with. It's a lifestyle that keeps me happy AND on track towards my goals!! . . #ivegotgoals #balancedlifestyle #balancednutrition #saladlife #eatyourveggies #weddingprep #weddingcountdown #notadiet #balancedlife #ieatwhatiwant #fitgoals #fitteachersofinstagram #summervaca #lunchbreak #lunchlikeregularhumans #weightloss #bridetobe #engagedaf💍

New post on the blog ✨ Tropical turmeric green smoothie with @botanicahealth Perfect Protein ✌🏻. Last week Botanica sent me a couple of their Perfect Protein protein powders. I loved how simple the ingredients list was - something that can be hard to find in a protein powder. Since then I’ve made a few delicious smoothies including this one that I just posted on my website. It’s been a while since I added a recipe! Link for website is in my profile💁🏻‍♀️. . What’s your favourite kind of smoothie?? . . . . . #sponsored #nourishyoursoul #stressfreeliving #adrenalfatigue #nutritionit’s #healthyfood #heathcoach #positivevibesalways #eatingwell #liveauthentic #smoothielove #turmeric #recipeoftheday #botanica #womenswellness #womenshealth #wellnesswarrior #ottawanutritionist #ottawahealth #naturalfood #balancedlife
