  • Did you see the #proteincookie recipe that went up on the blog this week?  Perfect for bookending a nice scoop of #sugarfree ice cream 🍨 👌
  • You're welcome 😉🤣
  • Question - how do you feel about adding protein powder to baked goods?  Yay or nay? Just finished a revamp of my clean, #sugarfree and #lowcarb #pumpkinpierecipe .  It may or may not include t scoop of whey vanilla protein 🤫
  • This just answered a 2-year long internal debate for me.  Just like that.  Thx Universe! "Decide whether or not the goal is worth the risks involved. If it is, stop worrying." —Amelia Earhart⠀

  • This morning as I lay in bed journalling, I thought about the goals I had for myself this year that haven’t quite turned out the way I wanted them to - and I know why. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I could say it was a lack of focused effort, but that’s only half the story. When I want something, and I believe I can achieve it, I go after it and I get it.☝️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But this year was different because even though there are things I wanted to achieve, it didn’t happen because on some level, I didn’t think I could do it, so I didn’t.  That realization hit me hard this morning and I was reminded how important having the right mindset is, not just for achieving goals, but for living a life you love.  If you’re constantly berating or doubting yourself, what kind of results do you think that will bring?  Not great ones, I’m confident of that.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The funny thing is that even though I’m extremely aware of the importance of mindset and actively talk about it in my coaching practice, I still struggle with it in my personal life.  I’m sure we all do. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So in these final few months of 2018, I’m going to try something different.  Instead of doubling down on my efforts to reach my goals and push myself even harder (which is my typically M.O.), I’m going give my inner goal-getter a little grace, take a step back, and focus on mindset for the rest of the year.  I’m not saying I’m going to stop striving toward the things I want to achieve, but I know that if I don’t get my mind right, I’m never going to get where I want to go.  So I’m going to prioritize the work that needs to happen between my ears and see where that takes me.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do you want to do this with me?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m going to do one more coaching group before the holiday season.  My goal for this group is to create a mindset of self-confidence and acceptance.  Yes, it will also be health related and participants can choose to focus on either workouts or just nutrition, but bigger-picture, I want to double-down on mindset work before the new year starts and I know I’m not the only one that needs this.

It starts Oct 20th so reach out or give me 👍 if you want details👊  photo @callme_christine
  • Lol 😂 is that bad???
  • Namaste means the light in me sees the light in you. 🙏  But more than that,  I hope that you see the LIGHT in yourself. <3
  • Many of you have reached out about a comment I made last week about being a practicing #minimalist to control anxiety. .
That may sound odd at first glance, but nothing has been more effective at giving me a greater sense of control and agency over my life than my deliberate choice to own less.
.
That doesn’t mean I live in an empty house or only own one outfit, but it does mean that I only own and acquire things that make a difference in my quality of my life.
.
I used to spend money mindlessly in an effort to “numb out”. Now I’ve got Instagram for that (ha just kidding... sorta).
.
If you are someone who can easily feel overwhelmed with life, consider clearing your space.  Start small with a drawer or a cupboard and notice how it makes you feel when you’re done.  Clarity comes from a clear mind and space!
.
I think 🤔 you’ll see what I mean.

  • I've been thinking about this a lot lately as I get through this season of work. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀
So much is going on in my professional life right now (all good) that's pushing my "dream work" into the margins of life.  You see, my dream work still in it's infancy and my "professional work" is what pays the bills. And even though I do love what I do in my day job, it's my "night job" that moves my soul ❤️⠀
.⠀
.⠀
Anyway, this is my mantra right now as I work extra hours, to keep both my day job and my dream work moving forward.  It would be so easy to press pause on my "dream work", but that would be like pressing pause on my happiness.  No bueno!!!!⠀
.⠀
.⠀
I just wanted to share in case you're also in a season of work and wondering if it will ever end.  Remember, nothing stays the same forever.  Eventually the work will balance out but the rewards will continue to grow and pay dividend.  Just keep your mind on the vision of where you want to go, and you'll eventually get there. ⠀
.⠀
.⠀
BTW, slow is still forward movement!  And if you're not making any time for your dreams, maybe it's time to let other, less important things go so you can plant seeds that will eventually become your future (by design, not random circumstance)⠀
