Wine and salad - both of them consumed on the same day. Is that counterintuitive? Nope! There used to be time when I could only have one or the other. If I was going to eat a salad, then the rest of the day also needed to be super “clean” with little-to-no fun foods, because if not - what was the point? On the flipside, one small indulgence like a boozy beverage or a sweet treat brought on a cascade of choices that left me with a ton of guilt and anxiety. Basically, I only had two modes - restrict or binge - and neither brought me any sort of happiness or balance. ⠀

That’s why I’m super happy to have discovered macro counting. Learning how to count my carbs, fats and proteins has opened up a world of freedom for me - one where I don’t have to forego the wine (or dessert or BOTH) if I’m eating a salad and vice versa. Instead, I can eat, drink, and be merry - all while spending time with loved ones without the cloud of food anxiety hanging over my head. ⠀

Mind blown. 🤯 Anyone else? #tag

It’s no secret that I’m not the best at dressing myself - that’s why Mal made me buy this super soft top from @Athleta because it's so versatile. Plus, he just knows what looks good on me, and I trust he won't steer me wrong! ⠀

I can easily dress up this top with a cute necklace (I actually wore it with a skirt for our anniversary dinner) or down with leggings and flips (aka my everyday uniform). Easy, affordable, and stylish! ⠀

Who has better fashion sense - you or your partner? ⠀ #liketkit

When it’s one billion degrees outside, but the AC blasting inside has you literally chilling... 😬

I LOVE this Trophy Top from @Athleta - the mesh detail on the back adds ventilation while the long sleeves keep the goosebumps at bay. Summer dressing conundrum solved!⠀ #liketkit

@thedailymurphdog takes pillow crushing very seriously! 🐶😂

“Don’t worry, be happy” - four simple words that can be so difficult to live by! Am I right? It’s no secret that I can be majorly Type A at times, but I’ve been working on it - and letting go of perfection has made me so much happier! I used to be a ball of stress when things didn’t work out the way I wanted, but I’ve realized that some of the best experiences I’ve had have been spontaneous and unplanned. Now, there’s no more perfect day, perfect mom, or perfect date night - I roll with the punches, because getting upset or stressed out doesn’t help anything, it only adds more fuel to the fire. ⠀

I was chatting with a friend the other day, and she used the word “flawsome” - loving life despite all the little “flaws”! I’ve kind of adapted it as my own mantra and have made big strides with adjusting my expectations to just go with the flow and embrace the good, the bad, and the ugly. ⠀

So tell me - what’s one “flawsome” thing that you’re embracing?⠀

WHY does this happen? 😂

Do you have wacky hormones? This Wednesday at 3:30 PM EST, @thrivebyfood and I are teaming up to set the stage for some of my personal hormones issues (and maybe yours too!) with a LIVE Q & A session on Instagram. We're going to chat about hidden symptoms of hormone imbalance and take live questions from those who attend. If you think you might have some issues related to hormones, I hope you tune in! ⠀

Happy Monday! 😎 On the blog today, I'm talking about: Training for CrossFit & Running, My @berkey_filters Review & Balancing Indulgences with Clean Eating! 🏃🏻‍♀️🏋🏻‍♀️💦🥗🍩

The weekend is so close, I can taste it! 😎 My tips for making the perfect iced coffee at the beach:⠀

Fill your favorite beach tumbler or mason jar with ice.

Pour in @chameleoncoldbrew concentrate - strong, smooth, and a little goes a long way!⠀

Stir in you favorite creamer, milk, protein powder or collagen powder (I love @SFH Vanilla and Churro protein powders and #collagen)⠀

Shake, kick up your sandy feet, and enjoy!⠀

How do you make your coffee? ☕️ What’s your go-to beach drink? 🍹

10 years ago, I married my best friend. And it’s safe to say that I am damn lucky! You’ve always had my back, @murphnmal (both literally and figuratively), and there’s no other wonderful (and kind of weird) person I’d rather spend my life with. These past 10 years have been the best of times and the worst of times, and through the ups and downs we’ve grown up, learned so much, and even managed to raise THE most amazing tiny human. You’re an amazing husband and father, and it’s safe to say that I love you more and more every year that goes by. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! ⠀

How'd you meet your significant other? ⠀

True story - a couple of years ago I was preparing my morning iced coffee while on vacation and set a brand new pair of pricey sunglasses on the counter while I added all my usual splash of cream. I don’t usually spend a ton on sunglasses, but this one time I did. Well, lo and behold, I went to grab them once I was finished and they were gone! Maybe someone picked them up by mistake or maybe they were intentionally taken? I'm not sure, but after that I resolved to never purchase expensive sunglasses again! ⠀

I stuck with cheaper ones for awhile, but time and again they would break, and I wasn’t completely satisfied with their UV protection (so important). Thankfully, @kohveyewear sent Mal and me a few pairs of theirs to try and we are IN LOVE! ⠀

Kohv was started by two brothers in New Hampshire who, like me, asked themselves WHY are sunglasses so expensive, and why can’t we find fashionable, quality shades. Right?! They decided to do something about it, and created a line of designer-quality frames using the same materials and craftsmanship as top brands, all while polarized for 100% UV protection.⠀

I’m wearing the LANGLEY, which are super cute and stylish - and only $19.99, which blows my mind because they look way more expensive. Bonus: Kohv eyewear is unisex and many of their pairs work for men and women. (I often "borrow" Mal’s sunglasses when I can’t find mine!) ⠀
