Face off Friday progression (left to right) - PIC 1: my heaviest weight in the midst of battling adrenal fatigue (high inflammation markers, almost diabetic, massively stressed, fatigued, low energy, generally feeling lousy and unwell)
-PIC 2: massive change in diet, learning mindfulness to combat stress, not allowed exercise (starting to lose weight, starting feel better, a bit more energy)
- PIC 3: started exercising, diet change now a lifestyle...much better at mindfulness, have a toolbox of strategies to deal with and manage stress, stronger, fitter, much more relaxed and much happier)

I’m blessed to have a great supportive people around who have helped me get to where I am today from what was just about rock bottom - a great endocrinologist who was able to diagnose me after continuous visits to drs begging for help cause something wasn’t right, a great dietician, a supportive family and friends and a kick ass personal trainer (@thevikingpt_nico ) once I was allowed to workout.

Reframe.

It’s Small Wins and Mini Victories Friday 💃🏻🏆🎊 What are you patting yourself on the back for this week? It doesn’t matter how small or insignificant you think it is, acknowledge it and congratulate yourself. Some of us are trying to change behaviours and patterns that we have had for decades! It’s IMPERATIVE that you give yourself credit for those small steps, they matter. They’re a win! -
-

Every healthy meal, extra glass of water, workout completed, early bed time matter. So what are you celebrating this week? Comment your small win below and let’s support and acknowledge each other 💙💚

Collar bones? Is that you? I haven't seen you since highschool 😅 slowly seeing improvements and it makes me so happy! #nonscalevictory

5 things you may not know about me:
👉1️⃣ I am first generation American... mom born and raised in Guatemala, of Spanish and German descent... and dad born and raised in Sweden (100% Swedish).
👉2️⃣ Spanish was my first language... bilingual upbringing.
👉3️⃣ I never wanted to scuba dive... 🦈today I'm an avid scuba diver who has over 150 hours of scuba diving recorded to include some of the best and most exotic diving places in all the world. I've dove with sharks, manta rays, jellyfish, octopus, stingrays, and so much more!
👉4️⃣ ❤️I dated my husband for 5 weeks, weekends only (we lived three hours apart), when he asked me to move in with him... I said no. 😳 The following weekend he proposed, I said YES! We were married two months later. That was 33 1/2 years ago. When you know, you just know.
👉5️⃣ I hurt when I feel unwanted... I want to be liked. I try to be likable, every day. I cherish the friends I have and I love to make new friends.
I am passionate about the things I believe in and I want to share the good I know, with everyone around me. 💙If you are up to play along, I’d sure love to hear!! #gigimkc #gigicowan #sharinghealthiswealth #sharehealth #sharehealthy #lovewhatido #bilingual #spanglish #workfromhome #loveworkingfromhome #tennisgirl #runnergirl #healthjourney #weightlossjourney #avoidingmeds #itcanbedone #healthierliving #healthierlifestyle #betterliving #bestchangeever #healthyandhappy #joinmyteam #betterlabresults #bestphysical #ilostweight #loseweightnow

I did not eat very well this afternoon. I overslept (not surprising) and forgot my lunch bag flying out the door. I didn’t have breakfast, had one cup of coffee then went to lunch with friends and ate horrible (but delicious) food 😕
.
.
The reason why I’m “confessing” this is because I, in no way, want to give the false impression that I’m kicking ass with my ~healthy lifestyle~ in particular, my relationship with food. It’s a struggle and I struggle to say “no” every day. .
.
But I’m not beating myself up over it because focusing on those “failures” led to me to where I am now. I’m learning that one bad meal/snack doesn’t mean I lost the day. I can do better by eating well and exercising the same day, the next day, and the day after. It’s about staying true to myself but also STAYING COMMITTED and strong 💪🏽
.
.
So I’m determined to be brutally honest with myself and with you guys by showing all the good things I eat and the bad things too. No false narratives over here 🙅🏽‍♀️

Back to tonight’s dinner: a burger patty with spinach, tomatoes, half an avocado and #homemade sweet potato fries 🥑🍟

..solutions are always ‘outside’ of our current perspective.. i.e. if we knew the answer we wouldn’t need a solution😊 💛🧡❤️

Just picked up my phone and received these messages from a friend/client. I was fighting back the tears as I read her sweet words and sincere gratitude. THIS is why I am a health coach! I didn’t start my health journey to “help” anyone else... I just wanted to get healthy myself. Boy was I wrong!! It feels great to be healthy myself, but it feels truly amazing to watch people I love find that freedom in their lives! It’s never too late to make a change. 💕 My heart, desire and passion is to help make that change achievable, simple and fun. -

I sometimes hesitate to post because it is kind of awkward putting yourself out there! BUT... I like who I’ve become and I’ve worked really hard for this and I want to help others. Especially, people suffering from chronic health conditions. I would literally hide from social situations before because I was so miserable with my body and health issues, so it feels great to be at this place in my life. I think it is good to share what smashing goals looks like! 😂😜 Since Benjamin was born, I’ve really struggled to stay on track during the weekend. I would do pretty well during the week and fall off on the weekend. I’ve really tried to change this pattern. One thing that has helped me, is to really cut back on my weekend alcohol. Not easy for me. I love having some wine on the weekend. I just found that it was easier for me to make poor food decisions after having a few glasses. Don’t get me wrong, I will continue to indulge for special occasions!! 😀 However, I had to make some big changes to continue to ensure my #diabetes Is controlled. Sharing my post workout proof #sweatyselfie from tonight. The last thing I wanted to do was workout after I put Benjamin down, but I had to get it in. #noexcuses #nobs. Hope everyone has a nice weekend. #health #wellness #puttingmyselfoutthere #healthjourney #type2diabetes #smashgoals #inspiration #momsthattrain #fitness #motivation #transformation #weightlossjourney

Senior year ➡️ a couple of weeks ago
Senior year I thought I was fat, and lacked confidence. I rarely ate full meals, and didn’t make nutrition a priority. Looking back, I looked good, but I wasn’t healthy. This second picture I am five and a half months postpartum. I am eating better than I have in a long time, and exercising pretty regularly. Even though I have a little extra pudge and loose skin, I feel more confident than I have in years. More importantly, I am HEALTHIER than I’ve been in years. I’m sharing these pictures with you all, because I want to address everyone who’s said something along the lines of “don’t worry, you’ll get your body back”. 1) My body never went anywhere, it grew a perfect person, which is pretty badass 2) I think a lot of people assume my goal is weight loss, and it’s not. My main goal is to get my health back on track, and to be more active, so that I can lead by example and teach Bennett healthy habits. I share on this account mostly to hold myself accountable, but also to share ideas, and information I learn along the way with you all. I’m not worried about being skinny, I am more concerned with overall health, and quite frankly, I think I rock my “mom bod” anyway. 😉 #healthylifestyle #healthjourney #fitnessjourney #remembertostayhydrated #eatinghealthy #learning #progress #healthynotskinny #momlifeisthebestlife #healthylooksbetter

Simple and nutrient dense dinner on a lazy Thursday night! I prepared this brussel sprout, cabbage and apple salad earlier in the week, and just dress it with @primalkitchenfoods honey mustard dressing whenever I eat some. Did the same with the chimichurri sauce (recipe below) and have been putting it on basically everything I eat this week! Simple avocado oil, salt and pepper marinade on the chicken and you can have dinner ready in less than 10 minutes. 🙌🏻 This meal is lacking a little fat though, so I threw half an avocado on the plate too after I took this picture. 🥑

Chimichurri:
-1 bunch parsley
-1 brunch cilantro
-1/4 large red onion, diced
-3 cloves of garlic
-3 Tbsp red wine vinegar
-1/2 to 3/4 cup olive oil (depending on desired consistency)
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp pepper
-1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
