How was your weekend? We hope it included some good food! 🍝
Fueling your body properly works wonders!
Eating healthy can improve our moods, behaviour, energy, physical growth, concentration, build immunity etc.
🌴🌴🌴 When I am old, I hope my face is covered in laugh lines and wrinkles. Maps marking the story of my life. All the giggles, early summer mornings; the sleepless nights spent dancing barefoot beneath a sheet of stars; the feeling of jet lag and a lifetime of adventure ✈️. I hope I can wander until my knees buckle and my legs give out. I hope that every moment of this existence becomes a magnificent memory. I hope I love so fully, so unapologetically, and so honestly that there is not a single second I would want to change 💕💕💕. Spread your wings! Be wild and full of life — keep your soul young and playful. xxx 🦋🦋🦋
Check out Karis!
"I was overweight, fatigued, depressed and stressed out. I woke up every day thinking about my weight and all the anxiety that caused. Looking back, I didn’t even realize how far I had let my body go. But on the inside, I was screaming for a break though. "Karis has lost 50 lbs. now.
« Intuitive Eating & Health At Every Size put weight on the back burner. »
“Weight” has become synonymous with “health,” leading to the misconception that IE/HAES are irresponsible & anti-health.
When in fact, these frameworks recognize that:
•there are so many different factors that contribute to health, beyond a single number.
•eating has emotional, mental, AND physical health components
•positive relationships with food & our bodies will improve quality of life
•everyone has value, regardless of weight/shape/size
•everyone deserves to be treated equally, regardless of weight/shape/size
^^all of which sound pretty pro-health to me!
By putting weight “on the back burner”, we are putting aside all of the stigma that comes with it, which brings much more empathy, understanding, & kindness to the forefront 💕 #foodandfearless
Tonight by the light of the moon 🌝, we were able to get a short walk in with the pups. 🐕 The weather was so beautiful this weekend! I guess all good things must come to an end, at least for a few days. #strongertogether #nofilter #moonlight

Day 40/80 Cardio Core Done! 💥 Finally I am half way through the program!
Sometimes it's easier to get caught up in mileage or speed and we forget the importance of strengthening the rest of our body. 🏋️♀️ It might not be as fun as running some days, but cross training is so incredibly important to prevent running injuries. I just wish I had learned that lesson years ago! 80 Day Obsession has not only made me stronger physically, but also mentally. 💪🧠 My runs have seen an improvement since I have started focusing on cross training. I can't wait to see where I am in another 40 workouts! 😁

‘Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans’ - John Lennon
I realised I’ve been spending a LOT of time dreaming, scheming, planning the next big thing. The house, the job, the holiday... so much so that I’ve barely been living in the now... just going through the motions. It’s so easy to dream big, without enjoying the dreams you’ve brought into fruition.
So my aim this week is to slow down, play, enjoy the little things and be grateful for what I’ve achieved 🌷
Tell me lovely, where can you soften more this week?
Gentle Flow with this lovely lady ... tonight @ 8pm. Because we love to move, and we love to be kind to ourselves and our bodies. You've earned it. ❤
Yes, this happened today!! On the double black diamond Commando course at Tree Runner Adventure park in West Bloomfield. This was the most physically challenging obstacle, it was crazy, lol. It doesn't look like much, but good gracious...😳 The last time I went climbing through the trees I was scared and really battled fear along the way. I wouldn't even attempt going past the blue course, lol. This time very little fear and all about the challenge! Considered Commando conquered 😜💪 #healthybodyhealthymind #positivevibes #mentallyfit #smileitsfun #selflove #beyondfit #treerunner
TIRED BUT WIRED? by @tanya.plummer.fit
If I’ve been burning the candle🕯at both ends, I often get like this - physically exhausted, but mind wide awake. You too?🤔
I’m not a huge fan of lavender, but it really does work. I’m learning more and more about the amazeballs benefits of essential oils. Peppermint and sweet orange are my other faves.😍
Have you tried this technique to get some quality😴zzzzz’s? Tell me your secret sleep hack!
When your current program says gets results but also...enjoy life....😍🙌😆. Who doesn't want in on that?!? .
Bring it on week 2!
Soaking up some family fun this Sunday with a spontaneous zoo trip so our big girl could say hi to all her favorite animals! Loved being able to enjoy watermelon from our @stasherbag
This is this is the type of #SimpleSunday
we like to get down with!😏
Keeping it simple and easy is the epitome of what I’m trying to do on a Sunday evening 🙌🏼 I have a busy week of travel coming up, and cooking/doing dishes just doesn’t sound like too much fun right now!🤷🏽♀️😂
So I decided to have a Maple Almond butter and jelly sandwich for dinner👍🏼. Its filler and healthy! And best of all, takes 5 minutes to make and NO CLEAN UP!!🤤

I've done a whole lot of nothing today & it's been glorious! I watched an old Dr Who episode, lots of Fixer Upper, and just enjoyed the lack of agenda or schedule.
Finally put on clothes in the last hour and headed to a friend's house for the evening. Anyone else enjoy downtime this weekend?? PS - This photo is from the Vail Hillclimb a few weeks ago. Can you tell I was exhausted?? 😂
Poverty + Emotional Eating // I grew up poor and while we always had food to eat, it wasn’t always available in abundance. My 5 siblings and I survived (and thrived) on ramen, fried bologna sandwiches, and corn flakes when my mom’s income as a single parent wasn’t enough to pay the bills + put a hot meal on the table. When I grew up, I swore my life would be different, but 6.5 years ago, I found myself homeless with a newborn baby after leaving a financially abusive relationship. I survived on rice and beans from my local food pantry and thanked my lucky stars that my body was able to produce enough breast milk to feed my son. Since then things have ebbed and flowed - being an entrepreneur is great until a client doesn’t pay an invoice on time. ▫️ I share this because in the nutrition world, diet culture is talked about quite frequently when discussing issues around food and eating, and while it plays a major role for many women, it’s not the only reason some of us feel crazy and out of control around food. You see, deprivation (real or perceived) almost always leads to a binge. In my case, cycles of poverty have led to binges that look like spending entire paychecks on food for fear that I wouldn’t have enough to eat, and eating more than what is normal for my body because “what if I don’t have the money to buy this particular food again.” It’s taken a lot of awareness, unpacking, and behavior change to create what (for me) is a normal relationship with food and eating. ▫️ These are the kind of issues we’ll be unpacking in Nourish - the emotional eating course I’m facilitating for women of color through @bghproject.

W A R M I N G • ma cockles with the chilly 6c this am. I made myself a delicious spiced cacao.
Cacao contains flavanols which are derivatives of polyphenols these are chemicals that make up fruit and vegetables and have been known for their range of biological activities that help with reducing the risk of chronic diseases. Flavanols are present in cacao and have evidence to suggest powerful antioxidant properties (these substances help rid of your body’s “nuclear” waste). Cacao also has a small dose of potassium which is essential for blood pressure control, functions in the kidneys and nerve and heart function are a few of the key benefits. It also contains some magnesium which is essential in our diet to help with muscle contractions, including post-exercise recovery, cramps and also sleep.
400 milliliters Coconut Milk
1 tablespoon cacao powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (add more or less depending on how much spice you like)
1 teaspoon manuka honey/coconut syrup/maple syrup
In a small sauce pan, medium-high heat, gently heat the coconut milk until it is hot but not boiling.
Whilst coconut milk is heating. In a large mug add a splash more coconut milk (tbsp max) add cacao, cinnamon, cayenne and sweetener of choice and stir vigorously to ensure it makes a smooth paste.
When coconut milk is hot but not boiling add to mug and stir well. Sit back and enjoy.
You can buy all ingredients (apart from cayenne) from @mrvitamins
