So you might have seen this photo before-me summer of 2016. Eating my kids leftovers, not physically active, depressed, etc, etc...Did I lose 35 pounds overnight? Umm no
Am I done making progress? Umm no!
The second photo is from January before an 80 day fitness and #healthyeating program. The third photo is last week at the end of it.
Maybe your goals aren’t the same as my goals-that’s ok! We can still work towards our individual goals together! No matter where you start-there is a program for you!
Do you want to feel more confident in your own skin? Comment below or message me to join my challenge group, Memorial Day Meltdown! Spots are limited- we start Monday, April 30!
I can't get over how easy yet tasty these PB & Dark Chocolate Energy Bites are 😍 I made them to help with my afternoon cravings at work, and I have to admit they do the trick!
Recipe: Makes 35 (I use the epicure perfect petites silicone tray, but cutting by hand is totally fine!) Ingredients: - 2 cups popped quinoa
- 1/3 cup chia seeds -1 tbsp hemp hearts - 1 cup nut butter ( I used organic chunky PB) - 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 16 squares bakers premium dark chocolate - Himalayan Rock Salt (to taste!) 1. Add quinoa, Chia Seeds, hemp hearts and 1 tsp of rock salts in a large bowl. Mix and set aside.
2. Melt peanut butter via double boiler. Once melted, add maple syrup and combine. Add mixture to seed mixture and mix well.
3. Fill your Perfect Portions mold 3/4 way full, or spread the mixture onto a cookie pan, 1 inch thick. Place in fridge to cool.
4. Going back to the double boiler, add chocolate and melt down.
5. Spread chocolate over seed mixture, and sprinkle a little more rock salt on top.
6. Cool in fridge for at least an hour. Cut and enjoy! I store them pre cut and in my freezer 🤗
🍴Pinto Bean Stew🍴 Another amazingly delicious recipe from @mamaontheglow using our versatile and healthy Turmeric Salt seasoning.😊 An easy recipe, perfect for tonight's dinner! 👌
Energetic as hell. Kind. Polite.
It was a pleasure to kick it with the crew we pulled together for our photo shoot yesterday.
Still basking in the good vibes. Feeling super proud. Pulled it all together. Lots of teamwork and solid communication...and perhaps a wee bit of “over preparedness” 😝😜
But I’m totally cool with that!! This pics are epic, sexy and stunning!! On brand for sure.
For 25lbs lost so far, I decided to treat myself to new workout shoes! I always love the flashy bright colors of @nike but black/whites are just as good. Something about the gradient color change in this is so appealing to the eyes. 😍 << that’s what I looked like when I saw them. #nike#nikeflexcontact
“When my world gets loud, could you make it quiet down?
When my head, it pounds, could you turn down all the sound?
If I lay in pain, by my side would you stay?
If I need you now, would you kindly calm me down?...” 🌸🌻🌼💜
looks like a whole mess but i will be preaching about these cheesy sweet potato stuffed shells for a while bc hot damn they were delicious 🍽 actually ate them with our hands bc it just seemed right 😂 such a comforting and filling meal 😌
Greek Yogurt Parfaits are my favorite breakfast/late morning snack 😍
This one from @lepainquotidien is delisssssssh, but its even easier and healthier to make one at home!
Here’s what I use: -1 cup Fage 2% plain greek yogurt -1/4 cup Trader Joes Just the Clusters Vanilla Almond Granola cereal
-1 cup fresh berries, mango, coconut, etc. .............
🤔 Staying Mindful: Keep the granola use low, and if you’re craving more sweetness, bulk up on the fresh fruits rather than buying sweetened yogurt!

One of the handful of possible side effects of taking exogenous ketones is GI Distress
GI distress can occur at dosages as little as 5 g of BHB/day
Then again, some people can tolerate dosages as high as 50 g of BHB/day after building the tolerance
We suggest first time users take a half a scoop for about a week or so
And then increase your dosage as your body gets acclimated
Our exogenous ketone supplement, Keto Xtra, has 11.7 grams of BHB in each scoop
The more you know 🤓
You may get far with one or the other but if you want a true long term physique or longevity, you must have both - Diet & Exercise
We all know the people who have no problems working out but cant consistently diet
Or those who get a ton of weight loss through diet alone but have no muscle definition due to lack of exercise
The happy middle is the person who can stick to a diet that gets them the vitamins and nutrients they need and can serve as fuel for their physical fitness
When you do both, compounding consistency starts to give you REAL results
These oven baked bacon wrapped chicken tenders from @lowcarbyum can be a main dish or an appetizer!
POEM 3 ‘His love for her’, PART 1:
They are for one another, it is mutual, a ship in their once abandoned port representing freedom and everlasting-love,
Together, they never lose time, rather, captivated, they lose the notion of time,
Older, as time goes by, yet, together, always young anew,
Divinity, soulmates, they are,
He is she, she is he, LOVE THEY ARE!
Girl on fire,
If adding to infinity were possible, all atoms, all grains of sand, all stars, all tonalities and emotions, all flowers, all the birds flying in the sky, all the music, all the precious stones and sites and landscapes, you will start understanding how much he loves her,
He sees in her something special to empower and protect,
Right through, looking, into each other’s soul,
Her beauty, her-light, her nature, her intelligence, her uplifting seasons, her choices and believes, her chances and changes, her resilience and joy, their love,
Everything in its entirety, her art and their artistic hearts,
Their aspirations: art, philanthropy, fitness, business, love-for-neighbor, love for family, and more,
His family considers them both their children, honored!
Love for animals and pets, love for neighbor, love for self, he is she and he is she, love for love.
why the poem accompanying the instapost?
Fortunate to experience love that has brought about growth, sublime feelings and so many beautiful emotions. Inspired, I’ll write, improve, and share — positive energies — J&L. 🙏🏼⭐️💫🎨❤️🙏🏼
