IG: “All great coaches have a coach.” 💥 And mine has gotten me back into my training groove after the move threw me off so hard😖. If you’re like me (and most people), it’s far easier to be accountable to others than to solely yourself (@gretchenrubin dubs this type of person the “Obliger”). I KNOW what’s good for me and what I WANT to do, I just can’t always bring myself to do it if it’s “just for me”. Enter: my Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach Nikki (we get a soon-to-graduate coach, if we want, as part of our program🙌🏼). All I had to do was TELL HER on our first session together that one thing I knew I wanted to do was to get back into my gymming routine (3 days / week) and that I wanted to start that same week. And I started back THAT DAY. That was 3 weeks ago and I’ve hit my goals each week so far and will continue to do so (until we travel or a significant life event interrupts me again 😅). Sounds so simple but the power of accountability, support and guidance that a coach provides is HUGE for building habits and hitting goals and as I train to be a FMCHC myself, this is really hitting home. Anyway, happy Friyay… I’m about to go to bed because that workout pooped me (mission accomplished—bout to sleep like a boss!) 🙏🏼 xx

IG: My girl @kjenni27 sure nailed this housewarming gift! ❤️🌵❤️ This lush succulent arrangement is adding tropical feelz and all the good plant vibes to our bathroom even in this freezing cold weather and makes me happy every time I pee 🤣. Long term goals? Fill this house with all kinds of plants! 🌱🌵🌴🌳🌿

IG: When you top your already delicious local @rudyspaletas brownie vanilla sandwich (1/2 slice) with your already delicious local @tkpreserves raspberry vanilla preserve, you get this (it was so good that I ate the second half the same way a couple minutes later ?

IG: Winner winner chicken dinner? 🍗 If you didn’t know this yet, I’m a big fan of crockpot cooking (especially meats🤤). This is probably because it satisfies 3 key elements: 1) the desire to be lazy and/or multitask because you put it in and then it cooks itself perfectly while you do other stuff like sleep🤷🏻‍♀️ (Or work, sure). 2) it’s a much less toxic way of cooking vs. roasting, frying, BBQing as it is far gentler and uses lower temperatures. 3) it seals in the juices and everything tastes 10x better. Seriously. • (Also meat separates SO easily from the bones and then I can save time and easily save all the bones for my bone broth and everyone wins 🙌🏼)

IG: 6 months later and this balayage is still kicking butt 💁🏻‍♀️ So happy that in my 30th year, I finally decided to face my hair colour fears head on (pun intended😅) and add some pizazz to my longstanding virgin brunette). It’s been a year full of many, many, many changes… Also, @sara.m.cr, you’re literally a hair Queen 👸🙌🏼 • • • P.s. this is my classic

IG: Heard of “Golden Mylk”? Well I just made a savory soup spin on that concept (if you’re unfamiliar, Golden mylk is usually a non-dairy ‘milk’ plus turmeric and sometimes spices). Chicken bone broth + leftover steamed cauliflower + coconut cream + turmeric + onion powder + garlic powder + Him. salt & pepper = 💃🏻🙌🏼🤤💁🏻‍♀️😳👌🏼 A recipe suitable for even the laziest of cooks as all these ingredients were just tossed into my blender, puréed, and then gently warmed on the stovetop. Relevant sidenote: If you aren’t on the bone broth bandwagon yet, you’re seriously missing out guys!! It’s soup season and bone broth is *THE BEST* base for all soups and sauces. Plus it’s chocked full of enzymes and gut healing nutrients like collagen, glutamine and glycine. I don’t have a recipe for this exact soup (just get creative, experiment and tryst your intuition!) but I’ll link my article allllll about bone broth in my profile in case you’re interested in diving in (it’s easy, I promise
