This was so scrumptious!! “Homemade”birthday cake ice cream. You know when you eat cake and ice cream and that last melty bite when all the flavors combine This is it!! Took 1 1/2 gallons of softened ice cream whipped in 1/2 a store bought cake, then added chunks of the left over cake so you’d get whole bites of cake as you eat it. Then refreeze.
We all agreed it was our favorite ice cream ever! Got the idea from a client who had been to a local place that does this with their ice cream and carrot cake. So many possibilities!
We are Not Alone
Taking action toward building a better life can be scary and takes great courage. Most of us become consumed by fear when dreaming about a better future.
We fear we will fail.
We fear we will not have support.
We fear people will laugh at us.
Many of us even fear success.
We fear we won’t be able to sustain the success we achieve and will fail publicly when we inevitably collapse.
Fear is often our biggest obstacle and keeps us frozen where we are.
We are not alone in these fears. We’re all afraid when we’re uncertain or when starting something new. No one is immune to it. We can combat fear only when we accept it as inevitable. I’ve found these five truths about fear from the book "Feel the fear and do it anyway" Susan Jeffers very helpful.
The fear will never go away as I continue to grow.
The only way to get rid of the fear of doing something is to go out… and do it.
The only way to feel better about myself is to go out… and do it.
Not only am I going to experience fear whenever I’m on unfamiliar territory, but so is everyone else.
Pushing through fear is less frightening than living with fear.
Do any of these resonate with you, my Beautiful Humans
They sure do to me, but it feels amazing to know that we are not alone in our fears!

It’s easy to take your health for granted until you don’t have it. You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. Am I right
Now, it may seem like prioritizing your health is a lot of work but then again so is disease, sickness, and suffering.
That’s why I call myself a wholistic practitioner. Because I view health and fitness as preventative medicine.
In 2020 it’s estimated that 50% of the population will be classified as obese and 75% will qualify as overweight. With these statistics comes a whole lot of health risks and unfortunately, a much lower quality of life for all that suffer. But who’s fault is it
Food commercials play on television all day long. There’s a fast food restaurant on every corner. Drinks are packed with sugar and a crap ton of calories and we wonder why we keep gaining weight.
The truth is, it can seem really hard to be healthy. Fortunately however there are so many ways to tilt the scale on your favor.
Drink more water, prioritize protein, practice sleep hygiene, eat foods you enjoy (in moderation), work hard and trust the process. Every small decision adds up.
Fitness is not just exercise. It’s not just hopping on a treadmill, eating salad and hoping for the best. It’s a lifestyle. It’s a collection of right actions that add up into a higher quality of life. You can constantly improve by simply taking small steps every day.

“Don’t talk to me before coffee!” ☕️ Yup, Alexa doesn't look like it, but she can wake us up to the aroma of fresh espresso 😳 (Alexa’s friend is called Alicia 🤭)
