S U N D A Y in a nutshell
・gym - pull ups, hang cleans, handstands 🤸🏼♂️ and one crappy assisted muscle up 🤘🏼.
・meal prep for next week (story!) 🥦.
・and uni cause I’m a geek 🤓. But since it’s still sunny out, I might actually do that while relaxing by the lake 😎.
Btw - boxes = great photo props 🤪.
Wie habt ihr das schöne Wetter die letzten Tage genutzt? Wart ihr mal am See oder habt gegrillt? 🏊🏼♀️👇🏼
Last week we co-hosted an amazing event with @supergirls.club. This was @expansivevoice’s biggest event yet, welcoming 100 women (and men) to join us in learning about the science in our emotions and useful ways to recognize them as valuable assets and not a limiting factor in our daily environment.
As the founder, I learned SO much partnering with @dariatsvenger of @supergirls.club and am so incredibly grateful to her. Expansive Voice started as community for small, intimate gatherings to explore vulnerable topics, practices and discussions, but with this event we opened our arms to a larger audience and loved it! The small, intimate gatherings are dear to our heart and will always be our bread n’ butta, but this event has opened many doors for us to explore this larger audience and we are SO looking forward to continuing to do it! If you were there, make sure to say hi!👋🏽
Endless thanks to:

Happy Earth Day!
Today I wake with so much gratitude and joy as it is my one year anniversary locking arms with an amazing company and community of women. 🎊 I remember thinking a year ago wow what an incredible day to join an incredible mission. 💜 One of the reasons I joined this wonderful mission is because of the care for the environment and people and to me that was extremely important. .
My journey this past year has been truly amazing. I have started coming out of my shell and have found this beautiful purpose that I desired. After having three kiddos I knew it was time I started nutrition courses and focusing on what makes me truly happy. It is so easy to brush yourself aside as a mom and put yourself last but that wasn’t making me feel full inside. I often felt pretty empty. During my nutrition courses I stumbled upon this amazing opportunity and the more I learned the more I knew it was placed into my life at that moment for a reason and I knew it was meant to be. .
I look forward to the years to come on this wellness journey helping others and learning from others as well. I couldn’t be happier doing exactly what I love.
Do what you love and trust in your journey💜✌🏻
Happy Earth Day!! Today I felt like sharing a few simple tips that can easily be incorporated into any lifestyle to help show some love for our planet!
• Reduce air pollution by supporting organic, local agriculture. • Consume less, and whenever possible try to purchase produce without wasteful packaging. • Go hiking, camping or do anything you enjoy that connects you back to Mother Nature. • Use other means of transportation such as walking or biking when the weather permits. • Please don’t litter! No matter how small a piece of garbage it is, it still contributes to the overall waste circulating throughout our community.
Remember, we are what our earth provides to us. The air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink all contributes to our overall health status. Show yourself, your community and the world we live in some respect.✌🏼
Happy Earth Day!
My journey with essential oils all began because I wanted to be more “green.” We were building the tiny house of our dreams, and when you’re going tiny, everything that goes into and comes out of your house becomes a much bigger deal. I was dreaming of owning our own property and recycling our gray water for a vegetable garden... but wait. What’s in that water? What would I be putting on those vegetables? And if it’s in the water coming out of my sink and shower, then it is inevitably being used on my body and my dishes, etc. 😳😳😳 #alertalert .
I took a deeper look into the ingredients I was using in cleaning and personal care products. These were things I was using every. single. day. and I had no idea the toxicity I was introducing to my body and our home. #yikes
I had written a paper in a botany class years before about ancient traditions of plant medicine and my friend had been posting occasionally on social media about how much she was loving these essential oils. (Thanks, btw @natalielace) My interest was, of course, piqued. After hours of conversation and research, I decided to give them a try and I haven’t looked back. Essential oils have changed the game— for cleaning our beloved home, for supporting every system in our bodies, for helping process emotions, and for knowing exactly what is coming out of drain lines so that one day we can recycle that water into a vegetable garden. 😂😍🍅
The business opportunity and the community that Young Living brought into my life are both just really big bonuses to it all. An extra check in the mail every month plus friends all over the globe all for taking the leap to invest in the products you use in and on and around your body!? You can’t beat it.
Did you ever stop to think how your thoughts and inner-dialogue might be affecting you physically? For example, what follows “I am...” for you? “I am tired,” “I am weak,” “I am fat,” “I am not in control.” Your thoughts and belief play a powerful role in creating your reality, even in your physical body. But there is a way to use this to your advantage to help you achieve your vision of better health! I’ll be talking all ‘bout it in Counting Colors!! Registration closes a week from tomorrow. Link in profile or DM me with questions/interest!!
‘Fail to prepare, prepare to fail.’ There’s staples I always have in my house such as lentils quinoa and some type of veggie (usually cabbage bc it last so long in the fridge😋) I know as long as I have these food staples I won’t make decisions that I’ll later regret In the moment of hangry lol. So my advice find staples that you love and are quick to make also that store well #🔑 haha. This was delicious😍 I cooked my split lentils in curry added sesame oil to the quinoa and just like that a flavorful nutritious meal made in less than 20 mins. Hope everyone has a great sunday! I’m heading to balboa for an earth day festival😄💚
🌱 I am SO excited for this little project of mine, as I’m sure many people are aware - food is literally all I think about. I love to cook with fresh herbs, but I’m a terror for always buying too much and then having it all go to waste, so as a little treat to myself I decided to grow my own 🤗 I can’t wait to start using what I’ve planted 🌱
Happy Earth day jelly beans!
My soul has been aching for another adventure. .
Make it your mission today to get outside, move your body, be a rainbow in someone else’s cloudy day, and enjoy all God created. 🌈🌏🌻
Ps today is also national jelly bean day so that means keto jellies ketones ordered for this girl, and some sun shine to enjoy this marvelous day. 🌞🦋🐛
On the blog 👉 A new series about staying inspired because the truth is… food is really the easier part of the equation. It’s all the stuff going on between our ears that makes a big difference in how we relate to food, and can sustain healthy lives to begin with. ✨
This first post is all about how to find your passion in life. Because truth be told? I spent YEARS trying to figure out what this was for me. I put so much pressure on myself to find that ONE thing that I didn’t realize that it had been right in front of me for years. (Reading Dr. Oz books as a child probably should have been a tip-off.) 😂🤦🏼♀️
So what I would tell my younger self… or anyone also wondering what that one elusive passion or purpose might be?
You actually already have it. 💫
It’s all of your interests. It’s what you spend your time reading in your spare time. It’s what you loved doing as a child. It’s what you think about on your drive home. It’s what you fall into an hour-long rabbit hole watching on YouTube. It’s the goals you obsess over. It’s the healing you’ve experienced. It’s what breaks your heart for others. It’s the thing you have a freakishly good memory about.
So patience, my darling. Chase the little sparks. Relax into the process. Trust that it’s coming when it’s meant to, in the best way possible. That if it hasn’t come yet, you’re learning something now that you’re meant to before you can run wild with it. And if all you do for the rest of your life is what lights your soul up and brings you joy in your spare time… that sounds pretty dang close to living a life of passion, anyway. So start there. And I truly believe the rest will be on its way to you. 💓

Thank you @skinrequisite_tm for this life changing product ✨
A moisturizer for both the morning & night, that also works as a makeup primer, and is filled with botanical extracts, amino acids and probiotics, giving you the softest most glowing skin ever. This is the product I always wished I could create... and now I have it 💛
I have a confession...I took TWO rest days in a row 😳 Anyone that knows me knows that I would never in a million years take an extra day off from the gym. But this is new & improved, more relaxed me. I woke up yesterday morning just mentally not feeling the gym - I didn’t get excited at the thought of lifting like I normally do. So I took this as a sign that I was getting run down. I’m slowly learning to listen to my body more & not be so hard on myself. I ate peanut butter chocolate cake last night and didn’t think twice about it. It might not sound like much, but these are huge strides for me. Also, I’m kind of liking this fuller shape 😏😏
Anniversary dinner at @true_food_kitchen
I first ate at this restaurant in Phoenix last month with the girls from class and was floored! I had no idea we had one in Chicago. .
So nice to go into a restaurant that is based on fresh, whole, anti-inflammatory, seasonal foods! ☺️
No one looks at you like you have 2 heads when you ask for gluten free and to sub out grains for more veggies. .
Ok, we did have dessert, which we never order, BUT it was grain free, gluten free, dairy and flourless! 💕
They even gave us a free dessert for our anniversary!
✨ Making time ✨
I've been out enjoying the stunning north Norfolk coast today, making time for me amongst the beautiful dunes at Holme 🌊🌞💙
Whatever you're up to this coming week, be sure to make some time to do something that makes your soul happy! 😊🙏
I currently have so much going on. Between a very full time job, running my coaching business and currently opening a new business (@wildlyoutofwing) I HAVE to be prepared with my food or I’ll have no time to make food!🍏
I like to have everything prepped and ready for a salad so all I have to do is throw it together and enjoy. 🥗 Often will throw everything in a mason jar so it’s just ready to dump in a bowl!
It’s easy to make excuses but it’s more rewarding to find solutions.
Pre cook all your protein, chop your veggies and have jars of pre made salad dressings to make your life easy! (I love having fresh herbs on hand to either toss in or add to my dressing!)
These shrimp cooked in coconut oil, garlic and rosemary were the perfect addition to my salad! 💕
