Happy Valentine’s Day!!! We weigh in and measure on Friday so be mindful of that as you celebrate today! I know that this can be an emotional day for some of us. Remember that food is connected to triggers and feelings sometimes. Keep a journal or even your smart phone and jot down what you’re feeling. Sometimes looking at it in black and white can help get it out. It’s ok to feel. Cry, laugh, be angry, etc…the beauty of being in the moment is being able to feel. This is what makes us human and proves that our heart is beating. Love you guys!!!
1. Tuesday- Cardio and some strength training. Have fun!!!
(Check out the videos on the exclusive page)
2. Food- If you plan on having some treats today in honor of Valentine’s day be sure to be mindful and connected. We get in trouble when we eat mindlessly. When I’m in social situations, it’s really hard for me to be mindful because I just want to hang out and munch. Most of the time, I do not even realize that I’m eating so much. Especially those little yummy appetizers. They add up quickly!!! Go in with a plan so you will be successful. I already made a gluten free cake and vegan cakes for our school party tomorrow. If I must have a treat, I will stay close to that!
Check out these beautiful vegan cakes. My amazingly, talented, fabulous sister Karen’s recipe!!! If you’re nice, I might give you the recipe:)))
3. Mantra for the Day! Enjoy life! This series isn’t about deprivation but it’s about balance. It’s about enjoying the richness of life, food, family, etc…. Connect and love every moment. My goal is to eat about 80-90% clean. It’s unrealistic for me to have a goal of 100% clean right now in my life. I have three young kids, we are very social and we love to eat. There will be times where I will give myself permission to eat whatever I want but I know that that’s a small percentage of my life. Know what you want your life to look like. I used to eat out at least three times a week because we were too busy or just too tired to cook. I’m happy to say that I consistently make meals at home about 95% of the time. Eating out is a luxury now instead of a necessity. Eating out takes work now because I have to research the menu, and if I’m going to pay 20 bucks for a salad, I might as well make my own!
Have a beautiful day! I love you guys and I’m rooting for you:)
