Motivation Monday- Push Through!

Last week was draining, I am just gonna own it.

But that’s last week. This is a new week now, and in HONOR of it being a new week, I am setting up to make today AMAZING, tomorrow AMAZING, the rest of this WEEK amazing.

Because I can. Because it’s just a bad day/week, not a bad life.

I just keep going.

If the road gets rough, stop, catch your breath, remind yourself you can do hard things, and keep pushing!

Saturday Sips – Gingerbread Latte

Having company? Headed to a party? How about a seasonal drink?!

  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp molasses – blackstrap or regular
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp strong coffee
  • 1 cup milk of choice – almond milk, coconut milk, etc.
  • Sweetener of choice, to taste

Mix everything together in a small pot or in a mug. Then heat until desired temperature is reached. (Alternatively, if you want a foamy latte: Mix spices into coffee. In a big measuring cup, heat or microwave the milk until foamy. Then pour the milk into the coffee mixture.)

 

Feel Good Friday – Hang In There

http://awarenessact.com/prepare-yourself-for-a-massive-energy-shift-as-mercury-retrograde-combines-with-a-full-moon-on-december-3/

This retrograde began on November 14th, stations with the full moon, and ends on December 22nd at almost 9 pm. This retrograde can and will likely be a bit problematic and frustrating, to say the least. Remember to do your best to remain grounded and let things run their course until you are able to settle down. Do not get caught up in the troubles that may come with this retrograde. While it will bring about mental balance, balance in everything else may just fall apart.

Hang in there, guys – we are gonna be okay! 🙂

New Yoga for 3 Day Refresh!

Up til this week, when I did a Refresh, I didn’t work out the three day span because it’s a good time to give my body a •R E S T•, but this week Beachbody dropped three new yoga workouts designed specifically FOR the Refresh, so of course I had to give it a try!

Felt good to move but not do anything strenuous that would take away from my body resetting itself – you all know I believe in working hard and playing hard, but it’s important to also be gentle and show yourself and your body the love and compassion it deserves.

Day 2, here we go!

 

Gentle Cleanse – Day One!

The leftover Summer gunk. The candy gunk (yep, totally had a few pieces of candy after my 90+ day streak ended). The Thanksgiving gunk.

It’s time. Time to #unstuffmyself!

I’ve strayed a little too far from the badass healthier lifestyle I had grown to live and love – the one that was keeping my Diabetes under control and had me feeling GOOD.

I am shaking myself off and focusing on going forward, back to feeling light and energized, starting with a gentle 3 day nutritional reset (one where I eat REAL FOOD – no starvation tactics here!), to get rid of all the fluffy gunk bogging me down!

I have done this 3 day cleanse several times now and felt fantastic each and every time, physically AND mentally!

Could you use a nutritional reset? Let’s chat!
