When your husband forces you out the door to attend a yoga class that totally blew your heart open and reawakened a part of you that has laid dormant since preparenthood... you snap a pic, and then go home and give him a big smooch.
Has anyone read 'Rise, Sister, Rise?' ..we did a 5 min writing exercise from the book after Savasana, that was about self love and inner power. LOVE.... bc.. who doesn't need more of that!?
#januarywhole30 Day 18
Tonight’s dinner is another favorite from @paleomg. It’s a Cuban pork made in the crockpot. I crisped it up in a frying pan and it is so delicious.
Also have some roasted Brussels with a couple glugs of balsamic vinegar. This is one of my new favorite things I’ve discovered this past week.
1/2 an avocado for good fats
An Italian kiwi from Costco. These are amazing. So sweet but also tangy. We love them.
Got diagnosed with a UTI yesterday, first one in 29 years of life. Weird. So I’ve been taking it easy the last couple days and listening to what my body needs.
Normally when I would get sick I would use it as an excuse to binge on all of my favorite treats and comfort foods, but this time I stuck to the plan and I think not filling my body with junk while it’s trying to heal has been so helpful.
Day 5/80 Friday night vibes ✌ #squatsnotshots
I had committed myself to a 5am wake-up call every morning followed by breakfast and a 5:45am workout. Yet its 7pm and I'm iust now getting my workout in. 🤔🤔🤔 Problem with this new 5am schedule is that I haven’t adjusted going to bed earlier to compensate for the earlier wake-up call. Then last night I really blew it and was out late with friends and didn’t get to bed until 11pm. When my alarm went off this morning at 5am I knew that I wasn’t going to be able to give 100% to this workout. So I reset my alarm and rolled over to go back to bed deciding that I’d workout after work. As I lay there to falling back asleep, I jolt myself awake with the thought that it’s day five and I’m already falling back into old habits of resetting my alarm. .
I commited to early morning workouts. I felt like a failure. After a few minutes of talking myself off what felt like a cliff I remembered that part of this program is #selflove.
Following a timed nutrition plan, 5am wake-up calls, longer workouts, serious meal prepping, these are all newer things to me. It’s OKAY to struggle and adjust. One day these things will become new healthy habits and I won’t have to force myself up or steer my way out of the kitchen. It will just simply happen. It will be as simple as brushing your teeth every morning.
Lesson from day 5/80. Be patient with yourself while you are doing new things. Learn from your mistakes instead of quickly counting them as failures. New goal for the weekend, get some much needed rest. 🛏
Ps. Second picture is what it's really like trying to take a picture with a squirmy German Shepard puppy.

believing in the fact that you are where you are supposed to be. we say this to everyone slowly chipping away at the items on their to do list wondering if today will be the day I “make it”. working on yourself tells the world you are making it, not how many clients you have, the people you know or money you make.
A journey is much more than steps, but is rather your triumphs, losses, smiles, tears, friends and connections. It’s isn’t all about you, but how you carry out your actions and show them to others.
Things are coming together much faster for me on a project in which I don’t evoke much emotion or make something incredible, but perhaps just lessen the burden for someone else, which still serves me a purpose. Not everyday is going to be life changing, but it will shape your life ✨
Happy weekend 💕
work on self is not selfish. it’s a necessity. i confess i used to think differently, but the universe humbled me here (over and over and over again) till underwater, gasping for air, i got it that there was no way i was going to make it if i didn’t start looking at me. but i didn’t much care for myself (honestly i hated myself) and so the idea of healing just for me was beyond uninteresting and literally had no traction in my system. i wasn’t sure i had any reason to keep going. i wasn’t sure i wanted to be here anymore. i was dancing with dying. but then someone said to me, when you heal, you help others heal, and if you heal, you can help others heal. and i remember running from the workshop into the bathroom, black tears streaming down my face as my eyeliner mixed with my first taste of hope in years. i wish i knew her name, the woman who said this to me, i wish i could find her and thank her, because she opened the door that gave my life back to me. she gave me a purpose, a reason to heal, and for years i have lived on the possibility that someday, not only would i get out, i would help other women get out. i have been so consumed these last 8 years, healing ruthlessly, repairing my body, reclaiming my mind, soothing my heart, feeding my soul (and building a company that required many 80+ hour weeks) i think i forgot to realize that i am now (yes now) i am now living my dream (at least around healing my eating disorder). and that, that is just the very sweetest feeling i would want for everyone. but first you heal. for you. yes, you. and just know (trust) it will also be for every woman before and after you... ❤️ @EmilyJoyRosen#couragemylove#justwakingup#healinghearts#secretkeepers#findthelight#woundsintowings

Meyer lemons.They’re a cross between regular lemons and mandarin oranges. Compared to a common lemon they’re less acidic, much sweeter and luring with an amaaaazing scent.
So blessed to have a tree of them in our garden 🙏🏻🌳🍋
Have you tried them??
