ROLL WITH IT. -
So your morning/day/night didn't go as planned? THAT'S OKAY! This was the hardest thing for me to believe. I always want everything to be so perfect, and before if something didn't go as perfectly planned my whole day [hell, my whole week] was thrown off. I would find a way to keep complaining over something that won't matter in the long run and my whole attitude/ productiveness suffered from it. -
Today I was supposed to wake up at 4:45am, do my laundry and get my workout in. My eyes woke up at 4:45am and then all of a sudden it was 6:10am and I was still in bed😂Now there's no time for laundry or my workout before heading to school, but I'm just gonna ROLL WITH IT✌🏽
Remember, striving for perfect is great- but actually being perfect is basically impossible.
Another lunch time without a kitchen 😜The walls are being tiled today, so progress is been made 😀. It's salad bowls, which we prepared earlier, for lunch. These are filled with lots of tasty goodness to keep us going!
Salad leaves topped with carrot, avocado, olives, and Parma ham.
Joy's has a garlic, chilli and herb salsa and I have cooked chicken, shredded and mixed with coconut yogurt and lots of seasoning! So good 😋 #curlytopscuisine
Food on a train - like Snakes on a Plane, but better 🐍✈️😉. Fresh baguette, salami, and cornichon. Just wishing I was on @avokween's level with the €6 bottle of wine. Alas, maybe on the 7 hour train ride back ❤️🍷
GOOD NEWS: got my food sensitivity test back and it looks like nothing actually gives me issues except for yogurt (S😭B), moo juice, whey (good riddance), and mushrooms (officially in mourning now). But GOAT's and CHEDDAR cheese = we all good. Also peanut butter's going right back on my spoon, ASAP. Gluten, unfortunately, wasn't one of the things this lab tested and I still think it's problematic for me but maybe, once I get rid of my SIBO, we can be friends again. Until then - this baguette was well worth the stomach ache. As was the bread at last night's dinner. Also that beer the size of my head (no wait, bigger 👀 - see my stories 😂)
Just had theeeee best ever live workout with our team! You know that the team your on rocks when they're up at 5ish to workout LIVE at 5:30 am! SAY WHAT??? Getting my workout in the first thing in the morning with my team is ahhhmazing! I need the accountability. Sometimes my a $$ is lazy and doesn't want to get in gear. That's why I love this tribe of women. They're there for me and each other...NO MATTER WHAT! We stick together. That's why we're a tribe...we're stronger in numbers...Who wouldn't want to be part of a tribe of strong women? I'm certainly glad I found my tribe of bada$$ women. Do 👉YOU👈 want to be part of my tribe? I'm having a sneak peak into what this tribe thing is all about on Monday so if you're even a little bit curious, drop ⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇ me a comment below and I'll get back to you. There's no obligation, I promise.
Well look what arrived this week 🤗 I have a gorgeous friend who has introduced me to these incredible oils and I'm so impressed with the results I've already seen from the samples she's given me, I decided I couldn't go without 😵🤗
This box was opened and in use within hours of receiving it 😂
I'm sooo enjoying learning how many ways I can use these amazing oils and seeing just how incredibly effective they!! I absolutely love 💞 when I'm introduced to awesome, new, safe and natural products - that actually work too!! ...... The only problem I have is that I'm just wishing I knew about them years ago 🙊🙈
I started using natural and green cleaning products around our house about a year ago! I found some that I liked, some that I didn't, and some right in the middle (smelled bad, worked good). When we move into the new house, I cannot wait to buy the Thieves line of household cleaning products. I diffuse the essential oil to purify our air, and also use it in a rollerball blend with frankincense and lemon to support my immune system. It smells so good and everyone I've talked to says it cleans great. I'm almost just as excited to clean our new house as I am to move in! #whatislife 😂 PS, I still loveee this field guide..."kick the toxins like Beckham."
Wednesday Wisdom! 🤓
Ah, the story of my life. I think Birch is my spirit animal! Lol! 😜 I've had many trials and adversities to overcome in life. It hasn't been easy, and unfortunately I've lost some people I cared about along the way, including family. I lost myself at one point as well. Standing up for yourself and what you believe in can sometimes cause others to reject or attack us. I say, take those dang bricks they throw at you and build a freaking castle. 💪 You shouldn't have to compromise self respect, values or beliefs to be accepted and loved, especially by family. 💚 Birch offers support to the unsupported. When feeling attacked by family or friends, Birch offers courage to move forward alone. Being flexible is important, but so is a strong backbone and Birch offers support to the weak willed to stand tall and firm for what they believe in. It can assist in overcoming negative generational patterns especially in situations where we are at risk of being rejected if we chose a different way. It lends he spirit of endurance to help individuals face trials of adversity so they may weather storms with the strength and conviction of a tree. 💚 Birch is a promotional Oil and typically only available at Convention. If you're lucky enough to have this oil, you can use it topically or aromatically. When you're feeling unloved, unsupported, etc, use birch essential oil in your diffuser to find your inner strength. Dilute with a carrier Oil and massage into the soles of the feet or on pulse points during meditation or breathing techniques. Birch blends well with citrus oils, mint oils, and woody or spicy oils. ☝️ If you're not yet a member and want to purchase essential oils, go to the link in my bio and click "shop".

So delicious & totally worth the mess 🍊
We all know oranges for their vitamin C content which is a powerful antioxidant, helping protect our cells from damage. But they are also a good source of fibre, B vitamins, vitamin A, calcium & potassium 🙌
Research even suggests citrus phytochemicals found in oranges protect us from conditions such as heart disease and cancer, as well as having anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antimicrobial benefits 👌
Does your skin look dull?
Are you dealing with damaged or sunburnt skin?
Does your face look uneven?
Are you beginning to notice little lines on your face?
Do you want to achieve and maintain HEALTHY, clear, luminous skin?
If you have answered yes to one or all of these questions then you need this in your life o⬆
This aloevera-based repair serum contains
✅ Hyaluronic Acid to help skin look more supple as well as fill in fine lines and wrinkles, thanks to its incredibly hydrating properties
✅ cold pressed Moringa Oil which has 7 times the vitamin C found in oranges
✅ Patchouli and Frankincense EOs both of which are prized for their anti-ageig properties
One unique benefit of Patchouli EO is that it improves the skin’s density, thus making it look and feel plumper and younger, while Frankincense EO is a natural astringent that helps tighten pores, it even helps fight breakouts and acne
Those that know know ... my mother will not go to bed without using this and following with her #orekebydami soothing Face oil ... neither would I, yes it is suitable for all skin types ❤

Did you know, for instance, that organic dairy products and meat contain around 50% more beneficial omega-3 fatty acids than non-organic? 50%! How we farm clearly affects the quality of the food that makes it to our plate: fewer pesticides, no antibiotics, no GMO... Food as it should be! 🙌🏻

🙌🏻🙌🏻Only one more day in phase 2!!🙌🏻🙌🏻
My appetite has been low. I made a much smaller salad 🥗 than is recommended and I couldn't finish the soup either!
It feels good to still be going strong. 💪🏻
Shopping 🛒 tomorrow for phase 3!
The end is in sight, but I am still loving every second of this! Even on the hard days, I am learning soooo much! 💕
That being said, I keep dreaming about food...
✔️eating ice cream 🍦 directly from the carton (by the way, I rarely eat ice cream to begin with)
✔️Taco Bell 🔔 (don't judge)
✔️Five Guys and big juicy burgers 🍔 ✔️Wine 🍷and cheese 🧀 tasting (I have never done this in my life but it seems awesome in my dream)
The lovely, mystical toners by @lilfox.miami are infused with rose quartz and amethyst for an added energetic component 💜 They are fantastic to use before applying face oils because they help the oils absorb into the skin.
