When I say I understand the struggles, the ups and downs and wanting to quit. I mean it. I HAVE been there! I HAVE felt those feelings and frustrations. I have looked in the mirror and not liked what I saw, I had days where instead of taking control of my life and habits, I sat down and ate half a pan of brownies. I had those moments when I looked at others who were healthy and fit and I was jealous. (Yes I know we don't like to admit so we come up with other rationalization to try and hide it, but there is no hidining it) But then one day I had enough! In was sick n tired of feeling self conscious and insecure, I was tired of being tired, I was sooo tired of not fitting in my old, comfy clothes, and I was tired of making excuses! So I made the choice to start small and make little changes, that gradually led into bigger changes, that led into even bigger changes, that led me to my goal weight. But more importantly it led me to find out what I was capable of once I shed all the excuses and self doubt. I was and am a strong woman, I am disciplined and focused, I can push myself and see the bigger picture, I am no longer jealous of others who are healthy and fit but I admire them, because I saw first hand what it takes to get there. Yes there are sacrifices at times, yes there is sweat and some tears, yes you have to put down the brownies at some point, but NO you will not regret it, NO it is not a punishment, NO you do not have to do it alone, and NO you will not have to wonder what it feels like to prove yourself and all of your excuses wrong, because you along with the support of me as your coach will get you there! There is no better feeling than the feeling of I DID IT!! If you are serious about taking control of your health and fitness then reach out to me, so we can get you on your way to saying "I did it" !! I have 2 new groups starting soon, so don't hesitate! #takingcareofme#takingcontrol#enoughoftheexcuses#iwanttochange#ineedachange
After running a couple errands earlier today, I’m enjoying a quiet Sunday on the couch. My body is telling me to slow down and rest so I’m listening. Meal prep will just have to get done later ☺️ at least I still had a few goods from this past week: @thrivemkt sprouted brown rice + mixed greens + lamb meatballs + roasted delicata squash (miiiight be my favorite squash) + avocado. Hope you’re all having a wonderful Sunday 💛
Creamy Lentil Soup🌿 It's filled with mushrooms, spinach, garlic, onions and of course, lentils. The base of the soup is vegetable stock and coconut milk. I did add a little bit of potato flakes to thicken it and I put half the soup in the blender to also make it thicker😌 Soup was served with crusty baguette and earth balance butter. This was one of the most delicious soups I've ever made!
