6 easy miles in perfect weather! I get asked a lot when I run and how I find time when I have 4 kids so young. Most of the time I run during nap time since my husband doesnโ€™t leave for work until the afternoon it makes it easy. Come the summer heat and Iโ€™ll be screwed ๐Ÿ˜† No one should have to run in 100+ degree temps! โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€” #runitfast #running #runner #marathontraining #runcoach #instarunners #runhappy #nikerunning #fitness #marathonrunner #marathontraining #inspiringwomenrunners #befitdavis #procompression #endurance #stayvital #womensrunningcommunity #irunthisbody #runnersrepost #runnersrepost #motherrunner #momontherun #runcim #runningterritory #fitlife #teamenertor

So excited to try this @vitalproteins Collagen Whey Protein!! Iโ€™ve been taking their Collagen Peptides for a couple years now and Iโ€™m in love with it so I thought Iโ€™d give their whey formula a try. โ€œAs you age, collagen production in the body declines resulting in looser skin, more wrinkles and less elasticity. Increasing collagen levels improves skin, hair and nail health/elasticity among numerous other health benefits like joint health, leaky gut, boosting the metabolism, muscle mass and energy. Itโ€™s one of the best natural skin and health care ingredients available!โ€ I love Vital Proteins products because theyโ€™re sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine hides and bioavailable meaning itโ€™s more easily digested and absorbed by the body. #stayvital #collagenpeptides #getthatgoodhealth

Iโ€™m not a coffee person but presentation gets me every time ๐Ÿ˜ Happy weekend everyone ๐Ÿ’• #lacolombe #coffee #weekendvibes

I use their Collagen Peptides everyday, but their match is next level. Thank you @vitalproteins for todayโ€™s present! #stayvital

His hair is so thick and shiny and mine is better than itโ€™s ever been thanks to using collagen powder in my everyday coffee since January. Literally my skin and hair have never been better. โ€ข
โ€ข
Personally I use the @vitalproteins brand. And there are sooo many more benefits to collagen than just external.
Check out my friend @soul_strength โ€˜s latest post to learn about all the amazing benefits. Iโ€™m seriously addicted to these results now, and I canโ€™t believe my body was missing this crucial ingredient for so long. Literally a game changer for my skin. โ€ข

S I M P L I C I T Y โœจ As this chapter of my life closes (how is graduation tomorrow!?) Iโ€™ve been reflecting on the past and thinking about my future and have realized how desperately I want more simplicity in my life. Itโ€™s easy to get caught up - to feel the need to always be doing something, to be buying the newest trendy food products and workout clothes, to be creating different workouts every day, to be going on a grand adventure. But I realized I truly am a girl of simple joys - a good cup of coffee, a walk in the sun, the sunrise/set over the lake, a perfect mug of matcha, a trip to the grocery store, a smile from a passing stranger, a phone call with a close friend ๐Ÿ’›
โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข
Sometimes I feel like thereโ€™s so much *noise* around me (metaphorically and literally) that itโ€™s hard to turn inward and focus on what TRULY matters, to focus solely on my big dreams and goals and not get caught up in the comparison, competition and constant hustle and bustle that simply takes away from my true purpose.
โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข
So here I am, cheersing to this next chapter with a simple matcha - no adaptogens or crazy moon dust (just my trusty @live24k of course). Cheersing to always noticing lifeโ€™s little joys, spending more uninterrupted time in nature, focusing on my true purpose and simply soaking in this thing called life ๐Ÿ’› Happy long weekend sweet friends, I hope itโ€™s full of so much fun and love and good food!!
XO nat

Happy Saturday! ๐ŸŽ‰ Recently Iโ€™ve been putting chia seeds in my smoothies, and I LOVE it! ๐Ÿ“Chia seeds add fiber to your diet, which helps keep you regular! (What, you didnโ€™t want to talk about poop?! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ)

I get asked all of the time what is my favorite @Whole30Approved protein powder, and it is @vitalproteins collagen peptides! It keeps me fuller longer, and it has helped my hair, skin, and nails SO much!
