Back into it again today, afternoon walk done, so far workout schedule is on plan and such 😊 it feels good to be on track 💪🏻
Haven't been to the gym in over a month due to life circumstances, but have made sure to make healthier food choices. I think this is the perfect example that exercise isn't everything. Diet is 80% as I have learned from #Whole30
. I am 100% a believer. I am 5 lbs from my goal weight, and I know that isn't everything, but I am PROUD of this journey!
Dinner is 2 Whataburger Jr. Patties with Havarti Cheese & 2 Deviled Eggs. 💖 My Snack (not pictured) was 2 Mozzarella Sticks and 1 Deviled Egg. 💛
We are having a Healthy Happy Hour in Redding, CA!! It will be Saturday, July 14th at 5:30 pm pacific time. We will be sharing healthy food options, sharing stories of transformation and explaining the highlights of our program. Would love to have you join us! Message me for details.
A truly healthy lifestyle is about making wise choices regularly and ALSO finding times to enjoy some indulgences. We aren’t perfect, but we are able to work toward balance. How do I know this? I’ve experienced it personally and with hundreds of clients because of the FASTer Way to Fat Loss program and the truly life changing program it is. Need proof— here is what we teach:
LIFESTYLE, no quick fixes or deprivation. We teach a system eating real foods, strategic exercise and how to make balance really work in real life with those treats you love. Here’s a great example from a client on this very sentiment:
“Wins this week are tracking and fasting- two things I was most nervous about incorporating into my routine. I usually need to eat right when I wake up and absolutely before exercise. I’m surprised how well it’s gone. Tracking has been easier than I thought and I’ve learned a lot about what I’m eating. I’m going for an overnight with my hubby- 24 hours without kids! I’m going to continue to make good food choices, fast, and exercise. But I’m also going to check out and leave my phone behind and enjoy a glass of wine!!” -ST
There is a way to have a lifestyle that works, keeping you on track but also living realistically! Reach out to me today for more information on my next FASTer Way to Fat Loss Bootcamp kicking off July 2nd. Spaces are limited and filling up quickly!

Here’s part of my breakfast on #day46
. Eating yogurt with berries obviously brings my net carb count for the day up towards the slightly higher end, but I only eat full fat plain yogurt (which actually tastes so much better than the lower fat varieties), and the only berries I ever eat are 1-2 strawberries and a few blueberries (10-20). I found a new type of yogurt at Ralph’s last time I went grocery shopping, called Probiotic Bulgarian Yogurt, from the brand White Mountain. It’s not as thick as the Fage yogurt, so it reminds me more of kefir, but with only 5g carbs per 1 whole cup of yogurt! This is the lowest carb count I’ve ever seen on any yogurt (compared to 7g in Fage’s full fat yogurt). They have a whole milk option, and a non-fat option, so obviously I went for the whole milk option for Keto! I’m thankful that grocery stores are starting to add more options that are Keto friendly. Including mineral waters from a bunch of different brands, propel zero, and a bunch of teas/fruity drinks that are sweetened with erythritol. I went crazy buying a million of these last time I went to the store and now my fridge is overflowing with a bunch of different beverages (and half couldn’t even fit in the fridge). I also swear by unsweetened iced teas. I got a little too excited, but I don’t regret it. I’ll have to take some photos of my drink haul later! 😂

Just when I thought I was a normal human that can eat all the foods...
I had a Candida flare up with weekend. Shouldn’t really be a surprise though. My sugar intake is up, I’ve been a bit more stressed about work and some family-related things, and I’ve been dining out more. Thankfully, I’ve been through this before and have total confidence that I can heal myself through the knowledge I’ve gained through the years. I’m not perfect and neither is the process. The important thing is I’m not giving up on finding what works for me.
If you need me, I’ll be over here sipping on my Pau d’Arco tea planning out an emergency Whole30 as a starting point to get my gut back on tract.
🙈What's the hardest part about weight loss?
🙈Finding a preferred method of weight loss? Easy. Get amp-ed up and ultra motivated to start? Easy. Present your solid plan to others like it's a business pitch? Easy. Start actually doing it? A little harder. Sticking to it every single day?
🙈In this era of information overload we're always fed the ideal. What's the ideal amount of weight you should lose in a week? What are the ideal foods you should eat? What time is it ideal to eat? When is it ideal to drink? When is it ideal to exercise?
🙈We get caught up in that, me included. And I feel that's the thing that makes adherence feel impossible.
🙈We're rarely fed, some is better than none. One is better than zero. We constant consume it's all or nothing. Zero or 100.
🙈Adherence plays between all or nothing. It's not realistic to go all-in on something completely new. "But if you do this for 10 weeks, you'll have these results!" But what if I do it like this, and stretch it out for 24 weeks? The results should be the same, the intensity of the change is lower, a rise in overall happiness, and a little rise on adherence for life.
🙈Lifting, nutrition, daily food is a lifetime journey.
🙈If we're gonna sprint, we better have enough gas to reach the finish line.
🙈Cos if we don't... then what's the point?

There are so many thoughts and feelings going through my mind right now. This weekend was absolutely incredible.
I'm so happy and proud I took a leap of faith and attended this conference. I went not knowing a single person. I was welcomed in by these amazing ladies! They are all so inspiring and supportive.
Over the course of the weekend I heard many inspirational people speak and I walked away with so many ideas, goals, and dreams.
I went on this trip as a stepping stone along my journey to a healthier and happier me. I would say I'm headed in the right direction!
Does anyone else prefer to go through your health journey with someone by your side? I know I do! I find it makes my experience much more enjoyable and actually makes it all easier when you have someone to encourage you along the way. Tag your health journey pal 🏃🏼♀️🏃🏽♀️
We leave for Scotland in just 3 days to spend time with David’s family and celebrate our wedding and I got to try my dress on again today to see how it fit since I’ll be wearing it at our reception in Scotland.
I felt gorgeous on our wedding day. Even though I had stopped working out about a month leading up to the wedding, the Lord told me that I would see myself as HE sees me as a beautiful daughter of Jesus on our special day. It was a blessed day💛
Yet, after the wedding I couldn’t find the motivation to do anything. I wore the most baggy and loosely-fitting clothes to hide myself every day. I was miserable and didn’t care. •
I’m now JUST 35 days into my nutrition program and 21 days into a fun fitness program and I’m gaining the confidence back that I had when I was a collegiate athlete!💪🏼
I humbly encourage you to just take a second and ask yourself if you’re where you want to be. God takes us all on our own unique paths to bring glory to Him!
You’re not alone because I know exactly how you feel! You DON’T have to stay where you are, that’s a straight lie.
Do you want to live your life as the best version of yourself? Join me on July 25th!🤩🎉

Quick stretch after my 5 miler today.... but it freaks me out... I’m always paranoid a killer is going to jump out of the bushes and grab me! 😂😂
. Raise your 🙋🏼♀️ if you watch your back like your running for your life?!Haha 🤣 .
I've been learning a lot more lately about how food and lifestyle choices impact our hormones - it's fascinating and makes complete sense to me and I love incorporating it into my own lifestyle but also as I coach my rockstar clients ♡⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One thing that was reinforced to me was how crucial it is to make sure you keep your blood sugar stable. Not just because you don't want to be diabetic or develop an inflammatory (degenerative) disease later in life, but also because studies show that when your blood sugar spikes and/or falls, there is less activity to your pre-frontal cortex in your brain.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is the area that helps you make logical, rational decisions and also helps you with what we like to call "willpower."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Another study also shows that when you exercise for 30 minutes just 3-4 times per week, activity to your pre-frontal cortex INCREASES. Which is why when you are active, you tend to make better choices and don't inhale a bag of chips. 👊⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The relationship between food + brain and exercise + brain is CRUCIAL to maintain a healthy lifestyle today and for years down the road. Keeping an active brain (especially the pre-frontal cortex) will also help ward off memory loss and diseases like Alzheimer's from developing too young.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Even if you're not looking to lose weight or change your body, your habits matter for the health of your brain. 👸⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Feeling grateful and fulfilled after a beautiful retreat weekend with our incredible doTERRA leadership crew. Thankful to be right where I am supposed to be surrounded by women who inspire and challenge me. We talked a lot about inspiring podcasts and books so I’d love to know what business and mindset books and podcasts you’re loving right now! Drop ‘em in the comments so I can add to my list 😘
O.M.GOSH you guys starting July 9th I'll be doing my very first challenge group.
I cannot wait. It will all be on Facebook.
Message, comment, or follow for more information.
I will be trying a few new ideas I got, some recipes that I've came up with (old school, new twist), ideas to stay on track and ideas for the kids.
Let me know if you'd like to join. ✌❤💪🤘
“I did not start these products for weight loss. I was SO TURNED off that it was marketed for weight loss. I hated that the name of the pink drink was "Slim." I hated that it was an MLM. I was sure this was a scam. When Brooke told me about it, I thought she had lost her marbles 🙊😳🙄. I was literally rolling my eyes and shaking my head at her through my computer screen. How could my very intelligent ICU nurse, active Relief Society President, married to an ER doctor friend have been taken for a fool with something like this??? This is what I was thinking. Maybe you're thinking this about me right now. Then she posted a picture of a tub full of frozen breastmilk and talked about how it has helped her get rid of her anxiety and postpartum, and increase her milk supply. I was feeling so overwhelmed with school starting, my anxiety was keeping me from being able to catch my breath during the day and from sleeping at night, and my postpartum which was late onset at 3 months instead of after birth had me crying in the middle of the day for no reason at all. Dean had only gained 5oz in two months bc my milk was drying up from all of the stress I was under from everything, and I was just feeling like I wasn't myself anymore. I just wanted to go back to life by the pool in the summer! So I called Brooke, ordered my woo woo products that I was sure wouldn't work, told Sean I had just wasted our money, and in a month when it didn't work, I would go through with filling my rx for Prozac and go on my merry way. Welp, the rest is history. After 10 days on the triplex combo and xfactor multivitamin my anxiety and depression were gone. My sugar cravings went away, so I didn't have to medicate my anxiety with choc pb ice cream anymore, and now 3 and 1/2 months later I have lost a total of 14 pounds (lucky 14 on Valentine's Day huh?! 😂😭💘😍). This is NOT bc I'm nursing. Normally if I lose weight while I'm nursing, I lose all of my breastmilk with it. My supply has doubled. I am overwhelmed with how great I feel. If you're shaking your head at me, I would urge you to put your pride aside, and find out for yourself what healthy really feels like. I'm so glad I did."
What a difference almost one year makes . When I compare these two pictures I see a completely different person . I was told by my doctor that I was class 1 obese. What???!!! Not me !!!! Well that’s what I thought . I knew I was overweight but never did I feel obese . Well once it sank in I realized that I had to change . I was the only person that could do it . No more excuses . I started doing fit camps and Zumba got on a nutrition program and slowly the weight started coming off . Remember it’s not a sprint .... it’s a marathon . I am more comfortable in my own skin now . I’m still on my journey and I WILL reach my goal this year . If you need help getting motivated with your journey let me know . Trust me ... I’m going through it too . #herbalife #healthjourney #herbalifecoach #clarksville #askmehow
My smile has never felt so effortless.
My cup runneth over.
My heart is so full.
The excitement I have inside me is nothing I can describe.
I look at these 2 pictures + cannot believe how different I am physically, emotionally, and mentally.
The “old me” vs. the current me.
2016 VS. 2018
My first coaching event VS. my seventh
Married VS. divorced
Lacking confidence VS. confident
Still had weight to lose VS. maintaining
Felt like I was in a good place VS. knowing I’m better than ever
Reflecting on the last 2 years ... realizing how much life has changed for me + knowing how it was preparing me for who I am today + for my future. I am just so beyond grateful for everything I’ve been through. I went through the emotions of a surgery that changed my perspective on life, traveled + flew alone - finding my own independence, lost over 30 pounds, got abs/lost abs, hit one of the highest points in my life with knowing my self worth, having self love, and standing tall, found myself at rock bottom where the quick sand was real, overcame anxiety + found ways to cope when I find myself sinking into it.
I started my heath journey for me.
I found myself over the last 2 years.
It brings me to tears knowing that finding my coach on Pinterest has more meaning now than it ever did 2 years ago.
I will never take for granted losing the weight, finding coaching, and living a life of purpose. The accountability, the community, the support is something I’ve never felt before + never will be without.
If you’re struggling with your weight, if you’re struggling with feeling alone, if you’re struggling with wanting more .. DON’T GIVE UP. Life is too short to be stuck, to settle, to never chase your dreams.
You are capable.
You are worthy.
You can change your life through health + fitness.
You can have meaning even when life seems like a blurry hot mess express.
If you are ready to find yourself again, if you are ready to lose weight, if you’re ready to do something for yourself drop your favorite emoji below or send me a message! 👇🏼😘💕💃
I haven’t posted art in a while... this one I painted and gave to my 6th grade teacher who currently works with my mom.
And actually that is good advice for me to follow right now.
Right now I am in a really weird place.
I am really uncomfortable when I am awake so I want to sleep all the time. But I can’t sleep very well because I constantly wake up from pain. And I can ease some of the pain (kind of - it is really more of a distraction) by laying on some kind of heat but then I have the fever so I am freezing cold and burning up all at the same time already.
On top of it all I am emotionally spent. I am tired of pain. I am tired of doctors. I am tired of taking meds that I don’t think are actually doing anything. I just want it all to be over.
On the bright side though I have been coloring and crocheting and listening to audiobooks a lot lately and have been working on some projects that I really like. Since all these activities do not require me to get dressed or even out of bed, they are great. 😉 I recently finished “Before We Were Yours” and loved it and am currently looking for another book to listen to.
Hopefully this pain flare ends soon and this round of fevers is short 🤞
Today has been a day. I've felt like garbage since finishing my Whole30. I've been putting off the gym for days because my energy level has plummeted in the last month or so. I always feel bloated. And I'm having all sorts of other issues. After much introspection, I've realized that I should truly listen to my lactose intolerant self and stop with the dairy. (I'm a Wisconsinite, oh the irony). Anyway, I've decided to take on a more paleo-focused diet reminiscent of Whole30, because honestly I never felt better than that, and that's the only time my seemingly endless digestive issues were under control. I'll still focus on incorporating healthy fats into my diet and limited carbs, but my main focus will be on whole, non-processed foods. Also, those Snapchat eyebrows are 🔥🔥🔥😂 #paleo #myweightlossjourney #keto #whole30 #listentoyourbody #personal #health #healthjourney
When your better half whips up a tofu stir fry. ❤️
Meal prep for the week is finished. This time I remembered that my hubby is also home on fridays and would like to eat too, so there’s actually 6 days worth instead of 5 so he can also have a Friday. 😂 And yeah totally tried the cookies when they came out of the oven - so good. 😀
Breakfast (E): BAM cake, berries, 000 yogurt
Lunch (S): Bunless burger, green fries, side salad.
Snack (S): another week of @mrscriddleskitchen
Cowboy cookie protein bites (I made a double batch this time y’all these aren’t leaving anytime soon) and berries
Dinner (E): Cowboy grub and a side salad
Dessert/snack (E): @brianamthomas
oatmeal cranberry cookies.
my dinner is a little different tonight. first, what it is. then i’ll explain the reasons behind it.
3 seared scallops (olive oil, s&p, cast iron pan), large raw salad of wild arugula, baby pea shoots, purple and yellow beans, sweet onion, and yellow summer squash (all organic and picked up this morning at the #studiocityfarmersmarket
)... dressed with homemade green goddess (tons of herbs + garlic + coconut milk + olive oil), and an itty bitty amount of rice (i know...gasp!). ___
keto has been a God-send, BUT, i’ve been experiencing some not-so-great physical and emotional symptoms and my intuition is telling me to switch to a different meal plan... something that is more nourishing for ME at this point in my journey.
so, for now, i will be eating a lot more veggies, some fruit, and a bit more starchy carbs.
we shall see!

I'm so craving this warm cup of goodness, that custard and oreo brioche and bed right now 😩🤒 •
If you haven't been to @thenourishingbaker
cafe - YOU MUST. It's actually amazing, best almond milk flat white I've ever had and that brioche was 🤤🤤 •
Plus the decor is gorgeous, right up my alley. I've been wanting to go for ages now, finally got the chance to pop in on my way back to Auckland yesterday after a whirlwind weekend 😴
Hopping on this challenge last minute, but it seemed much more fun than some other challenges out there, that are about just sticking the pretty poses (no offense if that’s your jam, it’s just not mine 💜). As for my introduction, my name is Kenzie and I’m from Pennsylvania. I first attended a yoga class in college and had an on and off home practice from there. This winter I completed my 200 hr teacher training after getting more serious with my practice this past year.
Today’s photo is your favorite pose: I chose #wildthing
. The first time I did this pose, I just remember a feeling of pure joy and play. Very freeing, reminiscent of hanging on the monkey bars at the playground. Ever since, I flip my dog every chance I get.

When people tell me eating healthy or Herbalife is expensive uhhhh not so lol you actually save more money prepping your own food guess how much I spent for food this week ? $22 from the girl that use to spend $15-$20 a day on food multiply that by 30 and that was my month 😩
And most of all it was all on the food that was draining my energy and putting me closer to the path of getting diabetes
I make a choice every month like we do on our BILLS and INVEST into my health and body I save money and feel better
Who’s ready to join this journey with me ?
