You know those crappy days when everyone bothers you and everything is too loud, too bright, and too much? That was yesterday and the day before and the day before that. But I made it through the fog of emotional turmoil and today I slept like I had run a marathon. I guess I kind of did. An emotional marathon. But it's all good. And we're all good. And maybe the world isn't all good at the moment, but there is hope for it. Yesterday there wasn't because I couldn't see it, but today there is and that's all that matters. Today. So I will be happy and tired and hopeful and grateful today. Tomorrow is another day and I will deal with it then. And guess what?? Halloween is almost here!! 🎃🙀👻
Woke up this morning feeling pretty terrible. Bad dreams, anxiety and bugger all sleep does not make a very happy Rina. After doing some things that make me happy (coffee scrub, quick face mask, yummy smelling body lotion, makeup, promite toast and a Milo) I felt a bit more equipped to face the day. Had a nice few hours out with Zoe, Mum and Nana. Bought myself a new mug because that makes me happy also 🙃😁 #mentalhealth#takecareofyourself#dothingsthatmakeyouhappy#loveyourself
My feet have taken me some pretty incredible places...
These photos were take while hiking the Kalalau Trail on the Island of Kauai. It was an amazing adventure, but not one I would have been able to experience had I not made my health and fitness a priority. "Respect your body. Fuel your body. Challenge your body. Move your body. And most of all, love your body."
We see so many awe-inspiring and impressive ways to change our lives for the better- going paleo, joining cross fit, committing to running a marathon😍 - and we think to ourselves - gosh I'd love to try but it looks like SO MUCH WORK and HOW can I ever get a routine down?
Or we get so ready to do it all and we run out of steam FAST because heck, 😥 changing our lives and life style is HARD WORK and when we have jobs and careers and family and friends it's just a LOT TO ASK to change everything at once.
So here's the dealio. My Beachbody team is offering a 4 week back-to-nutrtition basics group for new clients. 🍓🥕🍍🍎We will focus SOLELY on real sustainable nutrition, budget conscious meal plans and making shifts that will actually yield results using shakeology and other Beachbody tools. I am only accepting 3 new people for this because I want to give you such genuine attention! This will be highly customized.
Who is ready to make real sustainable shifts in their nutrition? No work outs needed! Heck, I'm excited for this because these days I'm really good at eating but not so good at cardio. 😂 Drop a comment, gif, emoji or shoot me a message and we will talk about your goals! 😍😉
Man, I struggle with slowing down. 😵 I guess I didn't realize it as much until getting a silly cold MADE me have to slow down! I've straight up worked myself into a sinus infection in the past by not taking the time to really take care of ME! It's actually been WEIRD not working out and it's been odd to have to cancel a handful of activities because I'm TRYING this self-care thing even when it makes me uncomfortable. 🤷♀️ I'm all about the personal development books and talking with people about growing and helping them get there!! I love sweating it out and working on nutrition! But then I have something that "slows me down" a little and suddenly I'm antsy and just wanna do ALL THE THINGS, ALL AT ONCE. But slowing down reminds me, once again, that there's more than one way to provide self-care and establish healthy boundaries for yourself. ❤️🙌 You can't be there for yourself or for others if you burn the candle at both ends all the time!!! Something's gotta give, ya know?? Stay grateful, stay humble, and stay open to learning something new!! #slowdown#sickday#loveyourself#fitnesslover
Talk to your doctor about mental health. I had the best appointment today with a brilliant and empathetic physician. Your mental health is as important as your physical health. Don’t be ashamed #mentalhealth#advocacy#takecareofyourself
New Moon energy... I'm gentle with myself. I don't know about my new beginnings or what I want to "call in." I'm just present within the day🤷🏼♀️ Everything feels uncomfortable in my body as I'm transitioning in life but I'm just chillin' with it.

I wanted to share this picture. This cost me a total of $21.42.... as I was leaving the store with my bag of food all I could think about was all the people ripping through the fast food drive thru and how much money they were spending for that quick fix, greasy, high calorie meal. This meal will last no longer than 10 mins. It will have been consumed and it will now become apart of that person, influencing their cell growth. This growth won't be for the good, but manipulating their genes to turn towards disease. It will not alone manipulate the cells to mutate... maybe into cancer genes, but there will be no left overs, no more food for another day. This will feed us for a couple meals and snacks. On top of that it will provide my family with the nutrients their bodies need to function, grow, create strength, and longevity. I know it may seem like effort to go to the store and grab a few groceries but this is where the world needs to go back to. Prepare your own meals. Enjoy the food you cook. Come back to the dinner table.
