Note to self: be aware of what you say to yourself or the information you consume. •
When we are in a fragile place, i am mainly speaking mentally or emotionally, we soak up information like a sponge. •
You become curious ... so you do your own research
You then become overwhelmed with all the information out there (aka Dr. Google) •
You then become obsessive and forget about the bigger picture ... you spin your wheels trying to find the answer, but you only create a bigger cycle. •
Trust me, I have been there. Dr. Google and I were like “PB and Jam” ... I over researched all my symptoms ...
I created a very unhealthy environment for my mental health. •
Now, I feel like I’m finally at a point where I am managing my stress. For the first time in a long time I’ve been able to manage my anxiety, when in the past used to hinder my focus and work.
The biggest change I’ve made?
Being aware of my triggers that onset my stress & anxiety.
. @lewishowes Podcast EP 646 talks about this 👉🏼Reacting to unmet expectations causes our stress 👉🏼Those emotions without having the right tools can negatively affect your mood by your reaction or response
👉🏼Unmet expectation + negative reaction = stress 👉🏼A negative reaction robs us of our joy and power when we give that power away through an emotion
So I’ve been working on keeping neutral about my emotions when it comes to my triggers. It’s a work in progress but I’m seeing serious changes with my anxiety!
Do you have any tools or tactics for managing anxiety & stress? 👇🏽

PAD THAI 🍜 What’s your favorite type of cuisine? Mine is definitely asian - sushi, spring rolls, curry... 😛 (i know that these are from many different countries haha that’s why i said asian in general!)
Tonight my friend & i are trying a new restaurant that serves vegan asian food 🥟🍣 So i though it would be appropriate to share this homemade pad thai! I can’t give you the recipe though, it’s one of my mom’s old recipes that we veganized 🙈

Okayyy I’m kinda digging wearing a hat to the gym, def going to start doing it more often.
Honestly I don’t really have anything to say today other than happy Sunday 😌 I am curious to see who else loves working out on Sundays. Comment below and let me know if you prefer #sweatysunday or you use it as a rest day.

Happy Sunday! I don’t know about you but for me - breakfast sandwiches, the messier the better! I’m all about that yolk drip!
The most perfect Sunday morning breakfast 👍 homemade egg sandwich better than any kind you’ll buy at the store. I made mine with a @silverhillsbakery sprouted sesame bagel, spinach, avocado 🥑, dark heirloom tomato 🍅, white cheddar, bacon, and a @vitalfarms egg pan fried in @fourthandheart garlic ghee 😋 also if you guys saw my story you’ll see how excited I was to get this white table from Ikea to take photos on 😂

We do not need extra supplements (they are good but not necessary) to accomplish our #gains , nature has already created what we need to survive.
Focus on #naturalfoods and balance them. All of them when are combined have all the important #nutrients for our body's function.
🇺🇸 Grilled Chicken, Rice, Mushrooms & Broccoli Bento 🍃 Kept things simple and basic with this quick packed lunch from awhile ago 😋 Hope you all had a great weekend guys!
🇫🇷 Bento Poulet Grillé, Riz, Champignons & Broccoli 🍃 Petit bento tout simple dégusté il y a quelques temps au bureau 😉 Belle soirée à tous !
Details 👉 bed of @florette_france salad leaves topped with grilled chicken (cooked with @terradelyssa_fr olive oil in a pan) + sauteed mushrooms (with olive oil too) + basmati rice + sesame seeds + steamed broccoli + @driscollsberry raspberries with coconut powder for dessert
🥛 Food Tip: Plain Greek Yogurt 🥛
Protein Payoff: 20 grams per 1 kg
The overachiever of weight loss foods, Greek yogurt is the golden child of many nutritionists and no-brainer for people looking to slim down. The low calorie count and impressive punch of body-building protein are only the beginning of this dairy staple’s slim-down skills. Yogurt is rich in good bacteria that encourage gut and digestive health, and will also keep things moving along nicely — banishing belly bloat. Toss in some antioxidant-rich berries and healthy fat-filled nuts like almonds or walnuts, and you’ve got an easy, balanced meal that will help melt away fat and promote healthy muscle growth. .
I prefer the double cream tub from @woolworths_sa 😊
I had the opportunity to shoot the amazing @thevitalist and left ready to take on a healthier world! Sarah is the owner of @vitalistsuperfood and the lead San Fransisco ambassador of @carbon38.
Working with empowering and inspiring individuals like Sarah is just another reason why I love what I do!
When it comes to my children's health and wellness, this momma only wants the very best. 😉
That is why I only trust our products, supplements and oils to Young Living. 🤩
You see my Maddy has been a full vegan since about Oct. That's right, NO ANIMAL products at all. No, not even honey. 🐝
It's really been eye opening.
The common question we get is how does she get her protein?? That question alone shows how closed minded we are as a society and how awesome our plants are!! 🌱🌱🌱 "Nearly all vegetables, beans, grains, nuts and seeds contain some and often much, protein." However, B12 is something that usually can only be obtained through a non-vegan diet so we went straight to the Young Living supplement Super B for Maddy. "B vitamins are essential to our health and well-being, and each B vitamin performs a unique and separate function in the body. Unfortunately, they must be replenished daily, as they are not stored in the body. Super B is a comprehensive vitamin complex containing all eight essential, energy-boosting B vitamins. Combined with nutmeg essential oil and bioavailable chelated minerals such as magnesium, manganese, selenium, and zinc, Super B not only assist in maintaining healthy energy levels, but it also supports mood and cardiovascular and cognitive function." Thank you Young Living!! #supportmybody#letstalk#reddrink#imthatgirl#GodsFARMacy#makeyouamember#YL4eva#chemicalfreeliving#notoxins#saynotodrugs#healthyliving#lovemybody#mybodylovesme#beTHIEVEr#swipemycard#day3 #supportsmykids#superb#vegan#journeytohealth

Dave and I finally got a chance to try @habitburgergrill and it lives up to the hype. I got the Veggie burger on a lettuce bun ( 5sp, but might be less since I got no cheese or sauce ) and an order of green bean fries 8sp. I got the unsweetened iced citrus green tea and we will be back!! I love having #healthyoptions for fast food. #habitburger#wwlunch#sundayvibes
Have you ever taken a look around your home/bedroom/living room and thought, “ I couldn’t possibly live here?!” As I sit at my desk working I can’t help but feel the NEED to stop, stop & hide from this mess. Home sick since Thursday + pile ups of stuff + so much to do has turned our normally neat and tidy space into a HOT MESS! by bedtime tonight, this will be a different montage. How do you clean up when it’s just so overwhelming you think about grabbing trash bags for it all?
