Meal Prep Monday – Glass Storage Containers

What do you use to store your prepared food? I use predominantly glass containers, and not only is that better for you (and the environment), but they are easier to clean since foods won’t molt or melt on! Win!

Coming from from a vacation is always a mad dash to get things in order, and keep on track without veering too far off course, and prepping and getting back in the game is critical, or else that “vacation mindset” might overstay it’s welcome!

 

 

Saturday Snack Spotlight – Clean Trail Mix

So snacks… that can withstand Florida heat but still nourish me and keep me stable. I opted to make my own trail mix and bring it, so I don’t have to worry about what’s in it, and it’s a good balance of things!

Here’s whats in it (this is portioned out into several bags)

  1. 1 cup sliced almonds.
  2. 1 cup raw pumpkin seeds.
  3. 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (I buy them in chunks and slice them)
  4. 1/2 cup raw walnut pieces.
  5. 1/2 cup sunflower seeds.
  6. 1/2 cup raisins.
  7. 1/2 cup dried cranberries.
  8. Peanuts
  9. Cashews
 Do you make your own trail mix? What do you put in it?

Friday Fitness – Beachbody On Demand

Even though I am between official programs (because I timed my last one to finish just before my vacation — planning ahead is my JAM), I am still working out this week, here in our vacation home.

I am making it work with the space and my Beachbody On Demand All Access – I have every single Beahbody workout ever made, and all I need is my laptop (or my tablet, or even my phone).

I can do gentle stretching or I can pump some weights. I can be a cardio queen or a dancing machine.

Full discosure here: this is 100% my own opinion – Beachbody on Demand is one of the most valuable innovations I have seen in a long time, truly making your health and fitness goals possible – eliminating all obstacles and excuses. I love them for that. I love Beachbody for doing that, for creating that. I love them for finding a way I can continue on my goals despite being on vacation.

That’s so awesome – you can take it anywhere. You can do any workout anywhere. That’s amazing.

If you haven’t tried Beachbody On Demand All Access, what are you waiting for? Let’s get all these awesome workouts at YOUR fingertips, and lets get YOU closer to YOUR goals!

Thursday Thoughts – Entrepreneurs

Everybody has something that brings them joy, that fuels them. Something they feel passionately about, and so doing anything related to it doesn’t at all feel like work.

Entrepreneurs are simply people who have discovered what their passion is and have said “I need to keep doing this. I need to pursue this. It doesn’t matter if I make a red cent doing so, this is what makes my heart tick, my soul shine, my spirit smile”.
These are some of the people I change lives with, and I couldn’t love or appreciate them more!

Work For It Wednesday – Florida Vacation Edition

Vacations used to stress me out, majorly. The planning, the logistics, and oh, the money. Both getting the most bang for our buck, and the paying for it.

Vacations, even cheap ones, are stressful on most people’s finances. Or, if they aren’t, they are vacations that are paid in full because they were saved up for. Which takes a LOT of discipline, you know.

Here soaking in the Florida sunshine with family, my heart. Making memories. Moments. Laughing and living and loving life.

These are the moments we work hard for. These are the moments we grind for.

I am grateful today that by me sharing my story, and helping others feel good about themselves, I have made vacations less stressful financially. Still stressful, but less so. And some day, they won’t be, because they WILL be paid in full with the income I work my butt off to earn by being real, raw, honest and transparent in my journey.

That I have the courage to do that, and reap such fabulous rewards as the result, is awesome. And YOU also have the courage to do it, you just might not know it yet. Are you willing to work for it? Let’s chat!

Because it must be said:

**Beachbody does not guarantee any level of success or income from the Team Beachbody Coach Opportunity. Your income will, of course, match your efforts!**

Truthbomb Tuesday – True Beauty is Internal

The most beautiful people are the ones who have KNOWN defeat, KNOWN struggle, KNOWN suffering, or loss… and have found their way out.

They have empathy, appreciation, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, humility, and a deep, loving concern.
Beautiful people don’t just HAPPEN. And beauty isn’t shown from the outside.
True beauty is internal.
