It's the weekend! Fear used to cripple me when it came to the weekend and eating and going out. At one point I would avoid going places thinking "if I stay home I won't eat bad stuff." Or I would obsess with how I could find something on the menu that was healthy enough to make me feel ok about eating it, and not feel guilty later. ๐Ÿ™Šlife is too short not to eat the nachos. Perfectionism was no way to balance. And I realize how, eating healthy the majority of the time and having a better mindset leads me to actually enjoy myself when I do go out and have a "treat" that I want. And I can leave happy and not panicked about what I just ate. I know it didn't take me 1 meal to get healthy, and it won't make you unhealthy from one dinner. It's about the balance. Also I learned that balance doesn't mean 4 meals consisting of nachos a weekend either ๐Ÿคฃ you live and you learn. Just don't forget to live. โค๏ธ #happy #healthy #love #cleaneating #fitness

Day 3 of tostadas : haha oops ๐Ÿ™Š lol sometimes I'm just on a kick. These ones featured some spicy red onion and it's was delicious. I almost didn't do these but I had some sweet corn after street corn ๐ŸŒฝ fail earlier lol. And of course a green shake is in order ๐ŸŒฑ my "liquid salad" although I'm about to leave the gym and I'm really feeling greens so I might do a green shake and ๐Ÿฅ— salad. Sometimes you just want what you want. Haha what's for dinner peeps? #happy #healthy #love #cleaneating #fitness

Ok mini tostado dinner check โœ… and a large liquid salad ๐Ÿฅ— check! Haha I'm super excited about tostada night, it's one of my fav. You can get all of the toppings your family likes and let people mix and match. And yes, I do eat a lot of my greens blended when I am making quick meals. A green smoothie is perfect and I get in 2+ cups of greens easily. Enjoy! #happy #healthy #love #cleaneating #fitness

Tonight's dinner: breakfast and beans ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ I've got vegetarian refried beans topped with some raw cheese, ๐Ÿฅ‘ avocado, banana peppers ๐ŸŒถ and Mexican creme. Then I roasted some asparagus with olive oil and Celtic salt along with a few small squares of corn tortillas and coconut oil. Last but not least some delicious breakfast potatoes with seasoning and onions. Peerrrfect. I'm starving as I did another leg centric workout. I'll be taking a rest day toMorrow ๐Ÿ˜‚ cause you know there is fire ๐Ÿ”ฅ in my muscles now. #happy #healthy #love #cleaneating #fitness what's in your dinner?

When everyone around is enjoying avocado ๐Ÿฅ‘ toast and you still have yet to try it. ๐Ÿ™„ what's your take? Thumbs up or thumbs down to this #trendy #toast lol. #happy #healthy #love #cleaneating #fitness

I love this quote that @kayla_itsines put up. It's a big reminder that your health isn't something to take lightly. It's the reason you can enjoy your friends, family, hobbies, pets, passions, and helps you go to work and do your job. With out your health those things fall apart. โ€ข
I used to say I couldn't afford to eat healthy. Everyone else around me was saying it too. Until I found friends who said "I can't afford not to eat healthy." I never thought to prioritized it. โ€ข
Yes that means I had to change some things. I was prioritizing drinking, shopping and other non essential activities instead. But I spent time after being really sick wrestling with giving them up even though I knew my health was faltering. What changed my mind? Knowing that even if I kept things the way they were I couldn't continue to enjoy the things I was prioritizing over my health in the long run because I kept getting sicker and sicker. โ€ข
Be don't worry. It's not a one or the other thing. I still have drinks with friends, go shopping and enjoy other activities. But I balanced it out. I didn't need to stay in the party lane 5 times a week. I cut back and put that money to healthy foods. And believe me, cutting back on any of those things just a little made a HUGE difference in money and health. โ€ข
I'm not saying give up anything right now. Just think about where you could take from nonessentials and put toward health. Because health is essential to enjoy everything else. I'll be posting a blog on the biggest places I cut back on and found money to spend on eating better foods that was quite painless and I didn't even notice.
Have you ever gone through this and made changes to help you invest in your health or have you always placed a huge value on it? โ€ข

Started the morning right. Last week and a half after coming off the reset I've been super lax about getting in greens ๐ŸŒฑ but today is day one of #projectcomeback very #sezzysquad style. I love when I find someone I follow who's going through the same thing as me and decides they need a kick in the butt as bad as I do! So it reminded me that even big time YouTube and IG health people fall off too and I can use it as inspo and get back on track. #happy #healthy #love #cleaneating #fitness

This company could not be branded better. These are unreal! Haha not a "low cal no fat food" but that's not my concern. I am always more concerned with the ๐Ÿซ ingredients and the quality. Portions are the key ๐Ÿ”‘ after that. This little snack is packed perfectly and I only have one when I am craving a pb cup. Plus these are very very rich. What's your go to chocolate cravings food? #happy #healthy #love #cleaneating #fitness
