For the last couple of weeks, all I have wanted are carbs...bread, cereal, anything but my usual healthy and nutritious meals. I went with it, filling in the gaps with veggie soups, but I know I'm starting to turn the corner now that I find myself craving my usual favorites like my morning smoothie packed with fruits and veggies! Yum!
I may not really feel like it right now, but with each day I am making progress and feeling a little better. I am reminding myself that progress is progress and sooner rather than later, I will be back to my healthy, glowing, and active self. ✨
dat fall doe. 😍
Fall is absolutely my favorite season so I love that it has finally really started to look and feel like it. I've been cooped up in my apartment by myself all weekend in an attempt to recover and get healthy again, but when there was a break in the rain yesterday, I found myself craving a little bit of fresh air and easy movement. Since I was feeling up for it, I went for it and it sure did feel good. Here's to hoping I'm on the mend and can get back to my normal activity level soon.
What a fun surprise! I came home from a long day yesterday to see a surprise box sitting outside my door from @healthyglow.co! Thank you ladies for this fun treat. I can't wait to dive into the new STRONG program!! #healthyglowco#HGCstrong#hgccommunity
Nothing better on a Monday than a solid sweat, and a multicolor plate. The #healthyglowguide Coconut Curry Chicken is a top pick in our house, even for my coconut-wary wife. Best of all, it tastes even better next day!
I popped out for my run after work last night, and only made it a quarter mile out before my body shut me down. In tears, I walked another two miles, and resolved to try again the next day.
This morning, I ran 4 miles, and on a negative split. I used to run to "make up for" unhealthy choices, but now I do it because I CAN run, and I like it. Even on days that I'm slow, running feels good. Even when I go fast but not far, it makes me feel alive. And isn't that the quote? "Do what makes you come alive"?

So many food photos on Insta are heavily glamorized, with perfectly styled edibles lounging in front of the dreamiest backdrop. I don't think there's anything wrong with that, but that's just not what food IS absolutely all the time. Food is humble. Food is fuel. Food nourishes us, gives us energy, heals the wrongs we sometimes commit against our bodies. And most of the time, this is what good looks like, as it is eaten over a lunch break.
#whatsonmyplate this afternoon is from the Fall/Winter #healthyglowguide : Butternut Chickpea Lentil Stew (perfect for #meatlessmonday !). Chickpeas and lentils are full of fiber and plant based protein, and butternut squash is high in both vitamins A and C, as well as B6 (and more fiber). I'm kick starting my fall fitness with a reboot of the Glow Guide, as well, because this is the food that (no matter how poorly styled) makes me feel my best. If you're considering the Glow Guide and #hgcstrong , the code BUY2STRONG gets you 20% off until the end of the day today.
Who's ready for the @healthyglowco STRONG 6-week workout program? There's a 3 and 5-day per week calendar to customize your workout experience targeting your upper body, lower body, cardio + core to build strength and endurance and bust through fitness plateaus. ⠀
$20 off TODAY using the LINK IN MY PROFILE and code: BUY2STRONG
Includes: 18 new workouts, 45 min or less workouts from home or the gym, modifications for beginner & advanced, pre & post workout snack guide. ⠀

Jumping for joy because #hgcstrong is HERE! As an #hgcambassador , I have always been proud of the Glow Guides, the workouts (SUP Power Yoga and Planks is my OG favorite!), and the community. However, after my running injury last year, I realized how important it is to cross train, and that strength is essential even to cardio bunnies like me. I loved the #hgcbootcamp , and if you enjoyed that, too, HGC Strong is for you. BONUS: this program includes pre- and post-workout snack recipes! ------------------------------------------------
Want to give Strong a try? If you buy two items in the HGC shop (found through the link in my profile) today or tomorrow (24th or 25th), the code BUY2STRONG will get you a $20 discount! Feel free to PM me with questions!

The #HGCRETREAT ticket sale is ON! On the agenda is one very full day of health and wellness related activities, including a hike, a cooking lesson, and one on one time with @ambitiouskitchen and @fitfoodiefinds ! I'm so excited to be heading back to Colorado after a five year absence, and even more excited to get to spend time exploring and learning with like-minded folks. This retreat is an intimate one, with only 14 spots, so grab your ticket while it's available! Hope to see you there! (Link in profile)
As a @healthyglow.co ambassador, I tend to pay pretty close attention to what @ambitiouskitchen and @fitfoodiefinds are up to, and early on, I noticed a decent amount of enthusiastic kombucha consumption. Kombucha is not new to the health world, nor is it new to me, but the first (and last) batch I had was a homebrew from a friend's basement. . .and I have avoided kombucha ever since. That being said, I firmly believe in challenging your own beliefs, including those about food, so I gave kombucha another try today. This @brewdrkombucha in Superberry was delicious -- I would absolutely drink it again!
