Instapot Pulled Chicken and Peppers

Instapot Pulled Chicken and Peppers

I layered this deliciousness into a tortilla a la soft taco. But it could easily top a rice bowl or I actually ate the leftovers with all the awesome broth for lunch! It was like a pulled chicken and pepper SOUP! #superyum

Is there anything more fantastic than coming home to dinner almost being done? I think not. Threw this one together and left the house for a busy day and came home and it was nearly done! #magic

The Practice of Being Present

The Practice of Being Present

Do you feel in 100,000 different directions and feel like you’re never really THERE. You’re always one step ahead going through the motions? How do you stay present when you have a million things pulling you in a million different directions? The practice of presence. Hear what I’m doing to quiet the noise and stay clear of the multitasking stress edge that doesn’t serve me!

Listen to Your Body – Honour Your Body

Listen to Your Body – Honour Your Body

As a culture we’ve moved so far away from listening to our bodies. We are over-scheduled and generally not present enough to even notice our own cues (myself included at times!). So how can we “tune in?” It’s not always possible to make it to the yoga mat or sit on a meditation cushion. But there is time in your day – if you seek it out.

Give Yourself Permission: Practical Boundaries Redefined

Give Yourself Permission: Practical Boundaries Redefined

When you say YES you are simultaneously saying NO to other people, opportunities and projects. Always. And often the one who suffers is you. Are you saying YES to others and always NO to you and your goals, dreams and vision of health, prosperity and life? Build healthy boundaries with these simple tips.

Choosing JOY: The Power of a Fitness Mantra

Choosing JOY: The Power of a Fitness Mantra

he words you speak matter. Whether you say them aloud or not. Yup. Because YOU’RE listening. All. The. Time. I want to talk about choosing your words mindfully – and with intention. And just how POWERFUL it can be!

Craft a Unique Plan: Find Your Fit

Craft a Unique Plan: Find Your Fit

If you’re just getting started with more focus on movement, I highly recommend simply focusing on just moving your body in ways you enjoy. Don’t over-complicate things with complex plans and detailed exercise regimens. You don’t need to hit the gym or do HIIT (unless you love them). Start with a plan to simply MOVE your body for 10 minutes daily. With time build that time to 20 or even 30 minutes daily. Walk, swim, dance, clean – do things that you enjoy (ok, so maybe not clean) that get your heart pumping and your muscles working. This will help you develop a great base of functional fitness AND build and engrain a habit of movement into your lifestyle! #winning

Once you have that base of healthy movement the conversation can begin to shift to more specific fitness outcomes. #cool

Lasting Change Takes Time: Be Consistent

Lasting Change Takes Time: Be Consistent

I know…we’re almost 2 weeks into the “new regimes” and you’re already feeling a little “done” with it. Here’s the thing. Lasting change…it takes time. So if you’re finding yourself with a case of the “I don’t wanna’s” and it’s not that you’re just lacking a little mojo today (more like every day)…consider that maybe, just maybe, you’re taking the wrong approach for you.

Body love & losing weight (isn’t that a contradiction?)

Body love & losing weight (isn’t that a contradiction?)

The other day I was chatting with a group of women around the topics of body love, self-compassion & health. In hushed tones one of them shyly asked me, “can I love my body…and still want to lose weight?” She asked me as though it was some dirty little secret, that somehow she couldn’t desire to change her body – and still love her body. That the two ideas were somehow contradictory. And I realized that there was a need for clarification!

Be Body Positive #12: Be Unstoppable

Be Body Positive #12: Be Unstoppable

Being body positive is about so much more than feeling comfortable & happy in your body. It’s about the lens through which you view your world. It’s about the attitude you take to your life and how you “show up.” It’s about the confidence with which you carry yourself and the unstoppable spirit that you possess. You are capable of so much more than you know. And it all starts with a belief in your ability to do whatever it is you decide YOU want to do. #besuperyou
