Baby guns 💪🏾 I have to say I don’t really train my arms, maybe I should start 🤔
Good Vibes only this morning! (Powered by green smoothies, winter candles, and GOALS 💪🏻) What do you hope to accomplish today 👇🏻👇🏻
It’s important to set goals for yourself, even little ones! By breaking down a large goal into several smaller ones you 1) make it seem more manageable 2) feel more accomplished when you tackle each small part and 3) make it more likely that you’ll stick with it because you’re acknowledging PROGRESS!
I always try to set a few goals for every day and write them down in my handy-dandy planner. Every time I check ✅ one off the list I feel that much more motivated to complete the next one!
It’s okay to slow down somedays ! It’s okay to take it easy! However for me, slow days used to turn into binge eating and binge watching. I would throw the towel in on the day (or a few). I pushed too hard at the wrong things and didn’t take good enough care of myself. Lazy days were a bad habit for me because of that.The best ways to break a bad habit is to figure out why you started doing it in the first place!
So now, taking care of myself, eating well, drinking enough water, exercising regularly (instead of burning myself out 2-3 days a week), I don’t need lazy days! I have slow days, where I can put down what I am doing and snuggle my baby for as long as he needs me. I will have time for me later, but I won’t write my day off (especially with a group of girls to be accountable to!)❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ #breakyourbadhabits #onedayatatime #slowdownandlive #selfcare #balance

Day 2 Breakfast:
1 oz. dried oatmeal
8 oz. plain yogurt w/cinnamon
1 Granny Smith apple (not shown because I already ate it.) Yesterday ended with extreme bloating and extreme hunger, but I felt too ill/full to eat a complete dinner. Hoping this passes in a day or two and that it is simply my gut adjusting to fiber intake. Suspect oatmeal may not be a good choice for me, but will give it another go. No intentions to drop out! #unstoppable #14daychallenge #brightlineeating #brightlinebites #onedayatatime
This came up in my memories today on Facebook. Being part of an Intervention that was successful was one of the coolest things I’ve ever been part of. Working in addiction treatment was a very difficult job but it was also very rewarding.
The young lady in this video is still sober and has the most adorable little boy you’ve ever seen. I’m grateful to know her and to have been part of her journey ❤️

Okay, okay! Here it is... It’s TRUE- we don’t eat less!! We learn to eat different! 🌱 🥔 **Starch gets a bad rap- but truth is, it gives our gut amazing pre-biotics (the thing that PRO-biotics (the good bacteria) need to grow) and comfort our hunger receptors so we can eat and actually feel satisfaction! . . . .
Vegetable and Potato Chowder
-1 small white onion, peeled and chopped
-2 medium carrots, peeled and diced
-2 stalks of celery, chopped
-1.5 pounds red or gold potatos
-1 red bell pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
-2 cups frozen corn kernels (or fresh if making this in late summer)
-2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme (can sub 1 teaspoon dried thyme)
-1 Tbl ground cumin
-1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
-1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
-6 cups vegetable broth
Salt to taste (depending on the saltiness of your broth, I usually start with -1/4 teaspoon (go from there)Freshly ground pepper -3 tablespoons chopped dill
-1/2 Cup Nutritional Yeast *optional (added at the end)
. . . .
In a large pot or dutch oven, heat the veggie broth over medium heat.
Add the onion, carrots and celery and cook until tender and onion is translucent, about 5-6 minutes.
Add the potatoes, red bell pepper, garlic and cook another 5 minutes, stirring often.
Add in the corn, thyme, cumin, paprika, cayenne and vegetable broth and bring to a simmer.
Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally for ~20 minutes until potatoes are cooked through.
Remove 2 cups of soup and place in a blender; puree until smooth and creamy then return back to the pot.
Add in the dill and season to taste, adding more salt/pepper if needed.
Continue to cook over low heat or Serve. I like to let it cook at least an additional 15 minutes for flavors to develop. *** Like most soups, this gets better the longer it sits.***

One thing in life that I have learned in life is that idols can fall. If we idolize someone and they “fall from grace” so to speak, then we carry the emotional weight of that with us. It is ok to appreciate, love and respect someone without making them a sole purpose for living.

Good morning I wanted to stay in bed but to much to do and I’m glad I pushed play. Back and biceps today! Week 3 of Liift4 round 2. All lifting today circuit style not hiit but heart rate goes up with constant movement! #onedayatatime #iwillbeafitmom
Nearly three weeks of holding you.
It is a rare occasion when this little one is sleeping or laying somewhere other than in our arms. He wants to be close and being a second time mother has allowed me to fully enjoy this phase in his life. While adjusting to life with my first, I would question myself and was also overwhelmed with the needs of a baby. This time around I am able to be more relaxed. I have come to terms with the fact, that I most likely can’t eat a full meal without being attentive to either our toddler or our newborn. And I get excited about 4 hours of sleep. Heck. Even 2.
The laundry is piling up I look the other way if I can’t put it away in that instance.
Ordering food because we didn’t manage to cook Oh well. Our kids won’t remember that we had the same meal three times in row (I mean, just ask my toddler. He wants to eat noodles and tomato sauce for every meal)
They will remember the hugs and the love. The time we spent. Let’s not be so hard on ourselves. We get up and show up every day. And we give our best. And right now that means holding you. As long as you let me.
not my best BUT not my worst! I’ve managed to maintain the weight I lost from April until now... the holidays and my own mind have allowed me to continually eat unhealthy foods 🤗😂🤗 but the difference between then and now is that in the past I would have quit on working out 🏋️♀️ and jogging 🏃🏻♀️ but NOT THIS TIME... this time I’m enjoying the meals but I refuse to quit working out!!! Maintaining my weight during these hot and cold unpredictable weather days is ok with me... I’m definitely looking forward for spring to get here so that I can drop the rest of the weight that I want off of me... #onedayatatime #mentallystrong #workingoutbcilovemybodynotbcihateit #empowermentisthekeysuccess #onlyicanstopme #noteasybutworthit❤️
Happy Anniversary to me!!!! 2 great years of being clean & sober.
Yesterday I got this notification from my sober app and I got to celebrated it the most fun way possible....to me it was going to Costco and shop all of my addictions ..... mixed nuts, coffee, veggies, frozen berries, 😂 ....yeah! Really!! Also I got a treat for myself some apple strudel 😉
Today I do not want to share all the dark feelings I used feel in the past....today I want to share happiness wich is totally possible every 24 hours that passed sober, healthy, strong.
I never in a million years felt this good and grounded.
I am thankful to God for the opportunity that was given to me 2 years ago.
Stay sober people 💪
Be who you are, not who the world wants you to be.
Stronger: physically powerful; capable of exerting great physical force
I am stronger!
The negative talk in our minds can hold us back from so much. But what if you switched off that negative mind and only said positive, uplifting words!
Would it change your mindset
Would it change your mood
Would it change that path you are on
Hell yesssss it would!!! Trust me...I’m living proof.
Today I am stronger. Not because someone is telling me to be strong. But because I believe in myself.
I was moving like a snail 🐌 in today's workout but I got it done!! Day 10/41 in the books!! ✔️
It's so interesting how our bodies are. Somedays I have so much fire I feel like I could go all day in the workout and other days like today, I felt so tired in it but just did my best pushing through and never giving up.
That is the important piece! Show up even when you don't want to. I really wanted to go lay down. 😂 Just know that there will be days you feel so strong and other days you may not have the same energy and strength. It is ok, don't beat yourself and be proud that you showed up for you!! That is what matters. 💖
Why are you doing this
Answer this and you'll have the motivation you need..
And not it is not because you want to prove they are wrong, it is to prove you are strong, you are tough and the only comparison you should be accepting it's with yourself.
Now in the office already worked out, and drank my sake me!
I'm using Vivri products for my after work out recuperation .. it's simpler to follow my track while I have everything prepared on the go... Here we come!
Let's talk about what happened BEFORE this healthy breakfast picture. :
Coffee with creamer
Handful of berry Fruit Loops
Wondering if I can start intermittent fasting
Decide to make a healthy breakfast
Grab a handful of chips while repeating "I shouldn't eat this"
This is my reality.
I'm trying to navigate post surgery recovery while working on my nutritional mindset (is that a word).
My goal is to create habits that are healthy and easy because obviously I struggle.
And keeping it real because I can't be alone on this right
All of these things help me to shift my vibe when I’m feeling low 💫 on the blog yesterday I shared 7 of my most reliable pain relief techniques that *don’t* involve taking a pill #totriptanornottotriptan 🤦♀️💊 getting to know how my body deals with pain and finding ways to soften into the experience (instead of spending the whole time fighting it 😣) has transformed the way I live with chronic migraine 🙏 over the years my pain management arsenal has grown so much, and I hope some of these strategies help you too 💛 direct link in bio to most recent bloggy as always! 😘 pic via @haleydrewthis #painmanagement #wellnesswarrior
