Growing up my mom and the best cold curried chicken that she always served with this amazing cold rice dish. It’s still one of my all-time favourite meals in the summer. But it’s a bit of a time intensive one. This was my throw it together in 20-minutes so we can get to the pool for swim club solution.
I've been re-reading Brene Brown's Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone as part of the SuperCrew Book Club. In Chapter 6: Hold Hands with Strangers she shares some of the ideas and research around Collective Effervescence...

Newsflash: I'm not super-human. I know, it was shocking to me too, but I'm realizing that the pace I've kept for the past 5-years is not sustainable. I know I'm late to the party on this one. For years concerned clients, friends and family have encouraged me to slow...
It's not just you, when you're exercising in the heat, it is harder. Our bodies are constantly working to maintain something called homeostasis - essentially the optimal body state for all things to function well and keep us alive (pretty important I'd say!). What...
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!
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
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.

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
If I could speak up now, this is what I would say: “This is my body, and how I choose to feed it is solely up to me. I know you are well meaning, and I love you, but I would appreciate it if you wouldn’t comment on my choices.” And you might think that sounds harsh, but the bottom line is that it IS my choice – my body, my choices – your commentary isn’t necessary or welcome.
It’s easy to become down on yourself when you’re bombarded by messaging that tells you that you’re not fit enough, thin enough, good enough. It becomes common place to feel like you’re not doing enough. That you should do more, be more, have more and desire more. But if we step back and recognize that the messaging we’re hearing is preying on our deepest insecurities with the intent to sell us something you’ll start to see things through a different lens.
