Yep! Just opened another bottle of these precious digestive enzyme vitamins
These supplements are #magic when it comes to #eating#foods high in #fat#sugar#protein . I take 2-3 before each meal to help maintain a #healthy#balance of digestive enzyme & #metabolic enzyme production.
And why is this important?
When your body eats very little to NO nutritious raw #fruit & #vegetables .... your body then has to increase DIGESTIVE enzyme production to digest these foods.
RESULT: your body produces LESS Metabolic enzymes. METABOLIC enzymes are so #important because they are necessary for growth, #healing breathing, thinking, hormone regulation, reproduction , detoxification, immune function, metabolism, #energy , & thousands of other biochemical functions in our #body .
You would be amazed at how deficient our modern #food is today. SCARY!!! Ever wonder why our we see more #food intolerances, obesity cancer ? Food is medicine & TerraZyme is a great supplement to help. I've become more aware & have made an enormous effort to change the way our #family#eats ... More #organic fruit & vegetables!

In case anyone had any questions... This is the Classic Physique of @thecharlesglass. A body from a different era; An era of aesthetically pleasing physiques. Even then people stared in awe at these men who seemed to be hulking beasts, yet their bodyweights revolved around the 200 lb range. The true freaks being closer 220. But the bodybuilders of that day kept their waistlines in check. Sure, many didn't have the segmented abs and etched-out intercostals like the bodybuilders of today. A 46 inch chest sitting atop a 30 inch waist stacked on beefy legs baring the circumference of a height of Wizard of Oz Munchkin actor is very pleasing indeed. In fact, it's downright astonishing.
I think we are (and have for some time) losing sight of the intent of the sport of bodybuilding. Balance. Symmetry. Aesthetics. Conditioning.
The sport is going to shit. Sure! It would be easy to blame drugs or the distributors but I will not. That would be like me being a Democrat and blaming the Republicans for Donald Trump while knowing good and well there was a more suitable candidate than Hillary, which is why Trump won. You following me? I blame the judges, the check writers and shot callers.
Now, I am not saying that all bodybuilders are trash nowadays. No. Not at all. The symmetrically pleasing ones who haven't allowed their waistlines and internal organs to run amuck while on their relentless quest for mass are to be commended and respected. But, of the IFBB isn't going to give them the proper respect or their just desserts (pun intended) then perhaps they should find a new home and leave them to their shows to crown a prize potbellied pig. Okay. I'm done.
It's internship field trip day 🙌🏻 Starting off the day with this yummy breakfast of scrambled eggs 🍳 bacon 🥓 blueberry muffin and fruit 😋 Today were learning all about beef, responsible farming, and how it can be incorporated into a healthy diet👌🏻Happy Friday yall!
Happy Equinox, my loves! May we each find our own true expression of the balance between light and dark. And when the groundhogs of life eat our sunflowers, metaphorically speaking, may we find it in ourselves to plant the seeds again, and again.
Happy Friyay!💕 Went and saw IT🤡 last night and I'm always so cold❄ in the theater! Soooo...took my warm and cozy poncho🤷♀️ I bought in San Fran last year and I love it! So excited to be pulling out my Fall🍁🍂 Sweaters again! Here's to another Fall🍃 like day and a new sweater to keep my warm on the last day of this work week!✌
I love this day!!! The transition into Fall is the perfect time to pause, reflect and find balance in your life...a chance to reinvent yourself! I appreciate this time of year because it reminds me that change can be beautiful. The transformation of all the colors unfolding in nature is unlike any other season. Stay healthy, happy, and balanced during this eventful coming season. May you all cultivate new ideas, new thoughts, and manifest abundance and constant growth. 🍂🍁🍂🍁 #fallequinox#nature#balance#fallfoliage#firstdayoffall#ilovethistimeofyear#autumn#libraseason
ITS A LIFESTYLE!
Life will turn out the way you live it, the things you want out of life are the things you have to put time into!
Sitting down wishing you were doing that and wishing you were doing this will just stay dreams!
NO more wishing! Start doing! Turn your dreams into reality!
It's so easy to waste time, it's about making every single second count.
Honestly start the things you want in life, life is so precious, especially in the times we live in! But it's up to us to make the most of it. That's why I LOVE what I do!
Start expressing yourself, come out of that comfort zone, when others who are afraid to express themselves, seeing others do it might give them the kick they need!
My passion is to spread positive vibes around also while motivating to get the best out of others! That does NOT make me better then anyone! We're all equal, we all live our life's, but we can learn from each other 😊
The day I stopped being afraid was the best day of my life, cause I'm living the life I was suppose to live!
Pushing myself to the best of my abilities, every single day, learning every second! ❤️THANK YOU ALL WHO SUPPORT THE JOURNEY! IM HERE WITH YOUS! I BELIEVE IN YOU ❤️ 🔥 Follow me for motivation/workout posts daily 🔥
Spread the journey 😊
Wearing @irish_fitfam 🍀
you are all amazing 😉
Don't forget to tell your friends friends
Dave loves yas ❤️
Today the light and dark are in balance as we celebrate the Autumn Equinox. As we move into the darker half of the year this is the perfect time to let go of those things which no longer serve you. Darkness and death should not be feared, as all shadow aspects of ourselves must die for new potential to be born. Traditionally this was a time of spiritual enlightenment and growth... Shedding the aspects of ourselves that may hinder our growth and potential.
It is also a time to celebrate the harvest for we are reaping what we worked so hard to sow over the spring and summer months. We also look to the future, preserving and preparing for the dark cold months ahead.
May your harvest be plentiful and your growth be blessed ❤️
Happy Fall y'all 🍂🍁💛 Mark this transitional day by taking a quiet moment to reflect on where you've been, where you are headed, and the layers you are shedding (or adding on!) as you shift forward. #manifest your greatest wants and needs, and celebrate your journey thus far. #FallEquinox
🔄 ADRENAL - PANCREAS - THYROID 🔄
Are you aware of the connection between proper blood sugar balance and your thyroid health?
Our endocrine system (the system that controls hormones) is directly related to blood sugar, energy, and weight management. 🍂Blood sugar is controlled by the pancreas. The pancreas and thyroid are both part of the endocrine system. 🍂The endocrine system is made of many feedback loops and their various hormones all “talk” to one another and make changes to the body to try and keep things in balance. 🍂These systems work in both directions, so they influence each other. 🍂When we ingest sugar, insulin is released by the pancreas to help the cells of the body absorb sugar so that it can be used. 🍂The adrenal glands release cortisol to help sugar get absorbed by the cells of the body. 🍂A hypothyroid state leads to a slow absorption of glucose, a slower breakdown of insulin, a decrease of the speed at which glucose is absorbed in the gut, a lower glucose to insulin response and, finally, less glucose in the cells for the body to use. 🍂All of this means less energy to power your cells and brain and more fatigue. 🍂To make matters worse, all of this affects the adrenal glands and the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA axis). In order to try and fix the problem of not having enough sugar, the adrenal glands release the stress hormone cortisol to increase glucose in the cells. 💛Many people have some degree of the sugar imbalance described above. If you are thin, it may be hypoglycemia. 🍂If you are overweight it may be insulin resistance or metabolic syndrome. 🍂If you feel better after you eat, this can indicate hypoglycemic. 🍂If you are tired after you eat, you may have insulin resistance. ❤️Level your blood sugar and help your Thyroid, friends!
They're connected!! Plexus Slim and Block have specific ingredients to help regulate blood sugar and insulin levels in the body!
Lil' mommy maroon-hood here 🙋🏽.... WHAT?! ... if T-Swift can change up her look a bajillion times👩🏽🎤...I most certainly can. #ichoseafairytalecharacter 😜
✋🏼Alright. I can't bring up the loose association between my looks today and Little Red Riding Hood....and....not think of "Into the Woods." #itsthethespianinme
👆🏼🌳🌲One of my all-time favorite musicals. "Into the Woods" is riddled with SOOOO many life-lessons and metaphors...I remember growing up and my parents often quoting this musical when teaching us about the 🌎world.
👉🏼My dad would say "Though scary is exciting, Remember: Nice is different than good." ((This is in referencing the 🐺 wolf who was "nice" to little red 👧🏼....but wasn't "good" at all)). Things can be deceiving, people can be deceiving, but you don't fully learn until you leave your fairy tale and enter THE WOODS "🌎"🌲🌳🌲
🎶 "into the woods where nothing's clear, where witches, ghosts and wolves appear...into the woods 🌲 through the FEAR, you have to take the JOURNEY." 🎶
Alright. That's it. Time to plug in my headphones and listen to this musical soundtrack so I can brush up on my parenting skills 😜🤘🏼👶🏼👦🏼👦🏼.
HAPPRY FRIDAY BABES! Wake up 🌄, head "into the woods" , don't be scared 👉🏼🌲🌲we all must go. I'm here with you along in this journey 👯💕
🍟FRYDAY🍟 Greek fries are the best, cut in house, fried in a pan, and drizzled with Olive Oil, Oregano, Salt and Peppa (and I obviously add some Feta) 🍟 It's the weekend! #landofpleasanteating#fries#friday#fall
New SHORT 😳 hair and a cranberry crunch @perfectbar for breakfast today! I'm actually kind of loving my hair. It feels so much healthier! #sixinchesgone
I'm up a pound on the scale this week. I had too many BLT's this week and I didn't even measure or use point friendly ingredients when we had fajitas for dinner- no regrets. Real flour tortillas 🙌🏼
#vulnerability moment here: the end of high school was when I started having an unhealthy relationship with exercise, food, and body image. Though I knew I was loved by my family, I felt INVISIBLE... I never felt enough or worthy... I didn't think I could honor my heart's questions and my emotions.
Only by God's grace have I experienced the growth and recovery I have! 🙏🏻💃🏼 I now LOVE exercising because it is a gift to be healthy and feel energized. I LOVE fueling my body well since each day is precious, and I have too dreams and goals to reach in the next 70 or so years [Lord willing]. I LOVE every moment when I can be fully grateful/confident in my own skin. •
If you desire that freedom and are ready to take the next step, reach out!! This is my passion as a health coach- simply sharing my story. I honestly would be STUPID to keep my story and experiences to myself- isn't that one reason why God teaches us and guides us?! If you want to join my team that's dedicated to a balanced, God-honoring relationship with food, exercise, etc, then you've come to the right place 🙌🏻👊🏻
