Happy Monday!! Starting off my morning right with a spinach-tomato-sausage egg scramble and half an avocado 😋👍

This week’s gym schedule:
Mon: upper body + cardio
Tues: heated yoga
Wed: legs + glutes
Thurs: arms + abs + cardio
Fri: yoga
Sat-Sun: spending Memorial Day weekend in Sacramento!

I currently lift 3x a week and spend 1-2 days doing yoga/mobility/core work and give myself 1-2 rest days. This is working super well for me and my body and mind are happy.

Have a great week everyone 🤗

Leg day, doneeee!

These moves, though using only medium sized weights, had me burnnninnnggg this morning!
More than anything, my hands and forearms give out way before my legs do. But, I've got to work with what my upper body can manage, and so that means (1) gloves, even though they're sooo not cute and (2) using weights that challenge me, but don't burn me out. 15 reps of each move is a lot, and I think my weight choice today was perfect.

We've all got different strengths and weaknesses. It's all about finding the right place for us to start and then power through!!

Happy Monday to All 🙋🏻‍♀️!! I’m sure most of us need a boost of caffeine to start our day after the weekend and since it’s Monday I would like to put my fiancé out there on #mancrushmonday while he sips his choice of caffeine ☕️. He sure loves whip cream 🙃

What do you guys like to have in the morning as your boost ?

Flipping into Monday because AP comes home today! 🤸🏻‍♀️😍😭❤️ Best. Day. EVER. 🙌🏼 Starting my day by flipping some @slapnutrition slap jacks... is there a better way to celebrate? N-O-P-E.

✌️things you should know about me: 1) I’m Team PS all year round 🎃, and 2) 9/10 times I’ll choose a nut butter drizzle over syrup. 🥜
.
I had some pumpkin purée left over from that insane dessert I made yesterday (which I promise to share soon! 😉). So I decided to whip up some pumpkin pancakes to make breakfast a bit easier this morning. 🥞
.
This recipe is basically my usual proffle recipe, just sub’ing the sweet potatoes for pumpkin and adding a bit more almond milk to thin it more. That’s it! Couldn’t be any easier. 🤗
.
WHAT WENT DOWN (makes 4 pancakes; 1 serving):
• 1 whole @nelliesfreerange egg
• 3/4 scoop (25g) @mrm_usa vanilla bean veggie elite protein
• 1/4-ish C (50g) organic pumpkin purée
• 1/4-1/2 tsp low sodium baking powder (less for vegan protein; more for whey/casein)
• couple splashes of almond milk to thin the batter
• couple dashes of cinnamon
.
Whisk everything together and let it sit while your pan heats. I used my @unprocessyourfood mini pancake griddle and sprayed it with @chosenfoods avocado oil before making each pancake. Once they’re all cooked up, top with @micheles_granola Pumpkin Spice granola + a drizzle of @wild_friends Classic PB*. 🤤
.
Happy Monday, dumplings! 😎

Happy week 3!!! What are your goals for this week?!

I love waffles and waffles love me too...I think 😂. Breakfast this morning was 2 cinnamon kashi waffles, almond butter, Golden delicious apple 🍏, and a side of Greek yogurt. I only have 1 week of school left, and it’s exam week. My last day is Friday, and I couldn’t be happier 😀. For those wondering my school starts early in August and ends in may. I remember when I lived in Michigan we started in September and ended in June 🙀. Much prefer an early start and early end haha, not a late person. Im also happy about how much more flexible I’m becoming. I can almost do a chest stand with wrapped arms, which is exciting 👍🏻. Hope you all have a wonderful Monday! Love ya chums .

Crockpots were made for Sundays👌🏻Thank you to @terratonesitup for this delicious Crockpot Street Taco recipe🌮This is definitely going to be a regular menu item, so easy and delish🤤Hope you all are having a great Sunday evening and ready for Week 3 of the #tiubikiniseries to kick off!

I went for a run today, and it was hard. Hard to the point where I wanted to quit. I had to get home though, so I still had to put in the miles. I had to put one foot in front of the other, no matter how slowly, and make it to my destination.
.
Guys, things will not always be easy. Most times, it will actually be dang hard. Don't give up. Fight for it. Fight for you. & when you need a little encouragement, listen to "I will be confident" by @stevenfurtick . Its sure to put an extra spring in my step. ♥️
.
"God didn't say He'd make it easy. He said He'd make me better, make me strong, and give me grace to carry on.
...
He made me a promise. He gave me a calling. I know that He's able to keep me from falling. I focus my hope. The past is gone. The moment to prove the power of God has come. In this I will be confident."

My sissy made me Singaporean chicken!! Super healthy: seasoned cauliflower rice, sliced cucumbers, and, of course, chicken. Dipping sauces include ponzu sauce, fish sauce and ginger! Super healthy and fresh! .

Burgs on repeat. 🍔 I have said this before but the day AP taught me to grill was a day that changed my life. Speaking of AP, he comes home tomorrow! 🤸🏻‍♀️❤️ It’s been a long ten days without him and I’m super excited (even though I need to prepare myself for major grouchiness since the dude does not do well with lack of sleep/jet lag). 🙄😴

⠀⠀
Third layer:
- 1/2 a dark chocolate bar
- 2 tsp coconut oil

There are few things that are better than home grown tomatoes. 🤤 I got these from the farmers market, but I really want to start growing some of my own food! I live in an apartment so it’s not ideal, but I do have a deck so I think I can make it work! If you have any tips please send them my way 😬 I will keep you guys posted on my quest to build an apartment garden 😂
⠀⠀
In the meantime I’ll be enjoying these farmers market tomatoes on toasted sourdough with avocado and eggs. Easy, simple, YUM. 👌🏻 .

Date idea: we go to @cafegratitude and never leave. Raw kelp noodles with basil hemp seed pesto = my love language.

I remember a time when enjoying a bowl like this would have filled me with guilt, crippling anxiety, and the consumption of which would undoubtedly have led to a purging episode. I remember a time when I didn't want to eat anything that didn't have the nutritional facts listed because that was such a total loss of control I couldn't reconcile it. I usually don't talk in much detail about my experience with ED, but he started coming around pretty early in life. It happened for the first time when I was in the fifth grade, continued throughout middle school, and when my dad died, it went rampant. The floor had literally dropped out from beneath me, and the only thing that seemed within control was food. I hit some pretty horrifying personal lows during the following years and the path to recovery was (and is) one filled with indescribable joy and indescribable sorrow, but a life where ED doesn't consume me has been worth fighting for. It's been fifteen years since ED first appeared in my life, and three since he spent a significant amount of time around, but I would be lying if I said he doesn't still poke his head in sometimes (and I deal with residual physical side effects on a regular basis). Thankfully, when he does, I have the tools to kick him to the curb. I don't about this for sympathy, but rather because I wish there were people being raw and honest about this when I was in the thick of it. I wish I had known I wasn't alone, and that recovery would quite literally give me a new lease on life. If you are walking through your darkest days right now, carrying that heavy load, please please know there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and there is a life where your relationship with food can be one of nourishment, not control and fear. Keep fighting the good fight, you have so many people cheering you on.
