I spend 25 out of 168 hours in a week with these faces... and I don’t mind at all. You can find us at the NOX. ✔️ { @equinox Sports Club LA }


Loving. Loyal. Caretaker of People & the Planet. Entrepreneurial. Teacher. Intuitive. ******************************************************* These are all words that described my aura, when I got photographed by @haloauragraphic this weekend. Placebo effect or not, it uplifted me and I’ve been repeating them to myself ever since. 🔮🔮🔮 It’s interesting how when we speak of a loved one (ex: beautiful, amazing, go-getter, sweet, strong), we are probably much kinder in our description of them than we are when we speak of ourselves. Why is that? Let’s try colorful and loving language on ourselves also. What a difference it could make. #mondaymantra


No athleisure discrimination here. If the quality is nice, sweat resistant, and can be taken from day to night by LA standards, then I’m a fan 💯. ******************************************************** Find me in Lululemon, Lorna Jane, and Fabletics mostly. On a professional level, @fabletics has definitely shown me the most love in return. I became a Master Ambassador for them back in spring 2017 contributing workouts for their website and also shot looks for some of their Fall 2017 campaign. They have something fun for everyone and I’m proud to help them celebrate their #fableticsparty 5th birthday this weekend. Who are some of your go-to’s for athleisure wear? 📸 @sheevafit


I always like looking up a particular food’s history. Do you too? ******************************************* Originally grown in Mexico and South America, chia seeds were once thought to elicit supernatural powers for the Mayans and Aztecs. Pretty cool, right?! I can’t speak to any super powers, but I can definitely agree to them being a “superfood”; high in fiber, protein, and omega 3’s. Here’s my (and my client Michael’s) breakfast meal prep for this week- a 10 min superfood chia pudding. 😋 #recipelinkinprofile #mealprepping


Did you guys have a lovely Sunday too despite life’s typical setbacks? 💛 ********************************************************* 35 miles, 50 min drive, 3 stops due to Nala getting car sick and puking on me, but who’s counting... Happy birthday to you sweet, Aussie girl @bronteekate , the little ladies and I had a blast with you at @themalibucafe today.


You had me at @erewhonmarket 😍. ************************************************** This is plant food to the max and when you’re lunching with like-minded people, it’s all the more explorative and fun. 🍽 Menu today: Brown rice balls (they taste WAY better than meatballs), roasted heirloom carrots, and a super greens medley. Even these paleo cookies (for dessert) were plantbased. Thanks for sharing the calories with me @talia_raminfard 🍪👍


October 1 ✔️ What I’m up to this final quarter of 2018! ***************************************** I’ve picked this book up and put it down a few times. This time it stuck. For those of us with an entrepreneurial spirit, the holidays can be a great time to sell a new product, host a profitable event, create a blogger partnership, etc. The question is why do some ideas/products catch on and others don’t. How do you make YOUR thing be one that is contagious? You’ll have to read the book to find out. 😘 Oh and feel free to shoot me messages if you’ve read it, I’m cool with virtual book clubbing. #motivationmondays #jonahbergercontagious

20’s been real. 💋✈️


Beet juice please for the lady on my right 😛🤓 ************************************* My mom is literally her own good vibes zone and she had so much resilience during her surgery and recovery. Saying goodbye to her tomorrow kills me. However, knowing I’m leaving her with a new love for fresh-pressed veggie juice (not packaged), longer walks (even in FL humidity), and kicking her soda habit, makes me so so happy. Bless up peeps, life is GOOD!


Grandmother-approved ✔️. One of the best parts about visiting my hometown is being spoiled with food. Is it like that for you guys too? **************************************** The first thing I noticed when I stepped into my grandma’s home was the smell of sweet potatoes. She had a plate of roasted wedges waiting for me, which I promptly scarfed down just after taking this pic. That woman knows how I love tubers! ♥️ ya, Granny! #betterthanfries


I’m so excited to share this 10 Minute Full Body Workout with those of you who only have time in the day for a quickie workout at home. This is my first time as a fitness consultant for @buzzfeed studio’s @goodful channel (my vid just hit 340K views!!)! 💯 **************************************** The full circuit is shared in my profile link and you can do 2 rounds instead of 1 for optimal effort. 10 minutes is better than 0 minutes, right? 💁🏾‍♀️


When your hometown bestie wants to cheer you up so much, he trusts you with his boat (knowing you’re a terrible driver) 👀 ****************************************** Guys, seriously, I can’t describe how powerful a feeling it is to have the love and support of friends, family, and even strangers, when life hands you a lemon. For all of you who have checked on me since I came home to FL to help my mom recover from surgery, I truly appreciate you. Forever grateful. Xoxo, ME💕 #thankyouforthelove


Twinning with daddio today at the gym 🙆🏾‍♀️🙋🏾‍♂️ It’s unbelievable that this guy can still bench 300+ lbs, and is considered a “senior citizen”. He’s worked out consistently since his teens. The truth of aging is this... Physical decline associated with aging is not simply the result of getting older. It’s the product of becoming less active as we age. Does it have to be that way? No. Take it from this 66 yr old. 💯


Even when you don’t quite understand a period of time... Trust the process, right? 🙏🏾


Here’s a feel-good salad I made for my Mom today while she recuperates: w/omegas, healthy fats, and some fiber. Although I no longer eat shrimp, I appreciate the wild caught seafood lifestyle of Naples and I enjoy making it for her while I’m home. 🦐🐠 This is Florida Gulf Coast style, baby! #gulfcoastlife


Poll question: who kept Nike and who burned it?


“Stay close to people who feel like sunlight.” When we’re fortunate to have an extra day off, like Labor Day, spend that time with people who lift us up. 🌞 Tag a sunshine buddy (this one of mine is across the country) and enjoy self-care time together this holiday!
