Over the last few days I have really been loving journaling in my new favorite little pocketbook, a daily reminder that jotting down our happy thoughts 💭can bring sunshine to even the toughest days & remind of us what to be grateful for when we're caught in the shuffle of the day to day. This morning, I took the time to enjoy one of my new favorite #hottonic blends I whipped up with @moondeli bliss booster & energy tonics, @pressedjuicery golden milk, and @vitalproteins collagen peptides while journaling and enjoying the sunshine through my window seat. I gotta' say, the sun makes me happy, but the brightest light comes from each and every one of you and the joy you bring to me every day. Happy Wednesday, rockstars! 💗Think happy thoughts 🌸
▫️What's in it: 1 tsp. @moondeli bliss booster & 1 tsp. @moondeli energy tonic, 1 tbsp. @vitalproteins collagen peptides, 1/2 tsp. fresh turmeric root, cup @pressedjuicery golden milk (heated over medium heat until warm, not boiling), and 1/2 tsp. honey. *Blend all ingredients until well-combined. ✨
Find some time for yourself this week. Can I suggest a good book and warm mug of immune boosting tea. Did you know that reading everyday can slow signs of dementia and reduce stress by transporting you to a different place. This is huge, right now I want to be transported to a place where 3 year olds don't cry because you gave them the yellow bowl instead of the white bowl, where they didn't just paint the only curb where you can park at school drop-off RED, and where Elf on the Shelf actually made your kids behave better!! I digress. 😏As our stress levels rise during this season, it can cause our immune system to be compromised. Treat your body to this immune boosting tea. •A mug of warm water
•1 tsp Honey •1 drop Thieves Vitality
•1 drop Lemon Vitality
•1 drop Peppermint Vitality
Stir the oils and honey into the warm water and Enjoy! #stressrelief#readabook#selfcare#oils#winter#naturalist#naturalwellness
Start where are you are, use what you have and do what you can. It doesn’t matter that it’s perfect, what matters is that you do it. What do you need to get done today?🙌💯
The holidays in a dang glass = this peppermint cocoa smoothie ❄️♥️🍫 Nothing says “let’s drink a smoothie” like 20° temps and frozen hair the minute you step outside, am I right? I’ve been wanting to make a minty chocolate smoothie for so long and I don’t think it’s going to get any warmer 😂 .
For this smoothie: 1 frozen banana, 1/3 cup diced frozen cauli, 1/4 cup chocolate protein powder (I used @alohamoment), 1 Tbs. almond butter, 1/8 tsp peppermint extract, 1 scoop @vitalproteins collagen, about 1 cup almond milk or till desired consistency. #vitalresolution
Stay focused on what you really really want, and trust your journey 💫
your value lies within. you are not an expression of your physical body nor a reflection in a mirror. you are a collection of goals, acts, kindness, hopes, dreams, morals, and respect. your self worth is inside; it is not a grade on a test, a number on a scale, or a figure on a check—you are so much more than these THINGS. you are whole, you are enough, you are love. ✨
You aren’t meant to be perfect, you’re meant to be human ✌️
I had a really long chat with my mum about how I'm feeling earlier, and then we had a really long cuddle whilst watching Christmas films. Sometimes talking is the very best thing. I waffled a lot and probably didn't make much sense at times, but bless her heart and soul she stuck with me, nodded a lot, asked questions, gave me her thoughts, and asked to read The Self Care Project after I'm done with it. The long and short of it is, although I'm not spiralling downwards, I can recognise the danger signs and if I don't address it it'll become a problem. Only getting 3 hours of sleep a night is providing perfect conditions for depression to thrive, and not only that - two side effects of codeine are mood changes and depression- GREAT! I did end up bingeing yesterday - on chocolates I'd already brought someone as a Christmas pressie no less, and tonight we had an Indian takeaway and I made no attempt to choose lesser calories. It didn't make me feel better or worse, because it's only bloody food. It's my brain chemicals that'll dictate how I'm feeling, not chicken korma and an onion bhaji. Realising this is oddly freeing. I've got an appointment with my doctor on Tuesday so all is well and no-one needs to worry, but I just think it's important to be honest about this stuff if it's something you feel comfy with chatting about. I get loads of messages from people who read stuff I post and then want to thank me for talking about things they then recognise in themselves, and if waffling on about my own struggles helps someone else then that's great. Often Insta just provides a compartmentalised snapshot into people's lives, but this weight loss and fitness stuff? It all goes hand in hand with my mental health, and it'd be dishonest of me to pretend otherwise. This doesn't really have a point, it's just a little thought train accompanied by a pic of my dog following a scent trail in the sunshine. Tomorrow's a new day.

Hi everyone!!! I’m finally feeling like myself today after a trip to the ER and a lot of bed rest 😄 Thank you to everyone who sent their well wishes over the past week. It meant so much to me. I just wanted to send a quick reminder to everyone to take good care of yourselves and never procrastinate when it comes to your health care. Now if I could just get rid of that huge IV bruise on my arm 🙄 ... #selfie and #selfcare
Love this note to self. Which one did you tick off today? Xx
Fill your cup first // Take time out for your, then you have more to give others. What's something you do on Selfcare Sundays? One of ours is to wander somewhere new. A new coffee shop, a new suburb and look at the houses, or find a walk by the water, but by wander...it's literally a wander. No pace, no stress, no hurry. Active self care. .
aannnnnnnd a bonus was a sleep in today. catching up from big weeks of little sleep. Nailed a 9 hour sleep! #recharged
Someone brilliant at #selfcare#sundays is @wildsagewellbeing 👏

Progress post‼️Going through my phone I was comparing these 2 pictures to the left was on 💚July10 120lbs💚 to the right 💙Dec14 130lbs💙 Our nutrition is not only to loose weight but it can also be used to gain muscle 💪🏼 with proper diet and exercise of course! My Goal since the beginning had been to be fit NEVER to be skinny and even though some people might prefer the left picture I prefer the right. I am Little by little molding my body to the way I want it it’s not easy but it’s possible throughout this whole process I’ve learned to love every stage of it and I will continue this has become a life style rather than just a temporary diet. #herbalife24fit#fitmom#fitmomsofig#herbalifemom#momswholift#momswhoworkout#latina#slimthick#fitchick#healthy#happy#selfcare#singlemom#herbalifenutrition
It's been one of those days where self care is a MUST. 🛀 Made myself a hot floral bath with Joy and Abundance oils. 🍷 Got my wine, cookies and some awesome reads. 📖 This is literally my favorite part of the day. Anyone else go all out with their self care? 😎
meat has been a rlly bad part of my diet for me recently and with my added on stress from these last few weeks of school I think I’m gonna lay off and start a more vegetarian based diet plan with little to no meat and more fruits and veggies! also when using these face masks and trying these remedies GOOD DIETING AND DRINKING PLENTY OF WATER is a MUST!! 💛✨👍 #selfcare#skincare#nails#hair#skin#selflove#healthy#lifestyle
Life moves so fast that it seems to pass us by before we can really enjoy it.
I have slowed down a lot lately. It’s been challenging, but I have seen the positive changes. I enjoy my mornings instead of quickly rushing to start on my to-do list. I take my time and really make it a point to “be in the moment” of whatever I’m doing. This is mostly geared toward non-work related activities. Nowadays, it’s so easy to get consumed with wanting to do more, be more, want more, that we lose sight of what truly matters.
Slowing down is a conscious choice, and not always an easy one, but it leads to a greater appreciation for life and a greater level of happiness.
I cut sugar from my diet for the month of November and whilst I was going to mom and baby fitness twice a week and parent and baby yoga once a week I felt great about my postpartum body. I was beginning to get my strength back and feel more energized. However the last few weeks sugar has been part of my diet again and I've begun to feel negative about my body and image again. I came across this quote today inside Mel Well's "The Goddess Revolution" and it's reminded me to focus on what I am achieving each day and to remain positive. It's Christmas after all 🌲 #postpartumbody#postpartumjourney#selfcare#strengthandbeauty#lifeofanewmom#achieve#motivation#thegoddessrevolution
