I believe it is the healer’s duty to hold the patient‘s vision of healing, in order to help them realize it one day. 〰️ At each initial visit with me, I ask you “what is your vision for your health?”. There’s actually a sacred alchemy that’s happening here. In asking you the question, I open up space for you to declare what it is you want in the name of healing. Voicing it is like a prayer offering to the universe and sets you down a path of realizing that vision. By naming it, you shift your healing from a mere possibility to an actual declaration. 〰️ Then it’s my job to walk with you down that path, gently guiding you in the right direction and holding you accountable, while also accepting you and supporting you exactly where you’re at, without judgment. (Hint: I’m ALWAYS rooting for you.) 〰️ All of this is a journey. Your healing process is a part of a very magical story that is unfolding for you and only you. ✨✨✨
One day, I stopped blaming everyone else for my problems, my mood, my happiness (or lack there of...) I took one step... and then another.... and another. Some days were harder than others.. but I can promise you, even some of my worst days now are better than my best days six months ago... why you ask? Because every day I wake up with purpose, with self confidence and with the knowledge that I am truly capable of ANYTHING...! 👊🏼 #sayyestoyou #timeforchange #yourlifeyourrules #sayyestothingsyoulove #stopbeingafraid #newdayeveryday #liveyourbestdamnlife #dothingsyoulove #beinghappy #motherofcorsos #mastiffmom #rpnlife #stopdoubtingyourself #nurselife #getoutofyourownway #reachyourgoals #workfromwifi #bestversionofyou #obsessedwithyourlife #healthybalance #trysomethingnew #teambelieve🥂 #teamserendipity💎
𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐇𝐲𝐩𝐞 𝐨𝐧 𝐈𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐦𝐢𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐅𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝘍𝘪𝘳𝘴𝘵, 𝘸𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘪𝘴 𝘪𝘵!?! – A diet that cycles between periods of eating and not eating. In terms of weight loss ➡️It’s a method used to consume less calories in a smaller window of time. It can help a calorie deficit be more tolerable. In terms of health and longevity ➡️it can be used to help stabilize blood sugar & improve insulin resistance, gives the gut & immune system a chance to rest & recover because it is not constantly “actively” working. However ➡️this does not work, if it does not work for you. What do I mean by this? 𝐈𝐭 𝐦𝐚𝐲 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐛𝐞 𝐫𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐢𝐟…. 🚫You have difficulty with hunger management and going long periods without eating triggers you to binge later 🚫You have large fluctuations in blood sugar normally & typically don’t know when your blood sugar drops low 🚫You have adrenal challenges (stress, kidney disease, cortisol dysregulations) 🚫Your goal is muscle gain or to engage in competitive sports 🚫Have a history of eating disorders This is the most basic, but important information on Intermittent fasting that people should consider before adopting this method.

3 things I knew when I started my fitness journey [way before competing was on my radar] . 1. I needed a plan 2. I needed to be able to eat *real* food 3. I didn’t know much and was determined to figure it out . Can do attitude or self-reliant ego? . Gold jacket, green jacket.. . Regardless. Let me know if any of this sounds familiar.. . 🙋♀️ I had tried everything, crashed and burned 47 times..”start again Monday” . 🙋♀️Sticking to something for 14 days wasn’t feasible, let alone 30 . 🙋♀️ WHOLE30 was more like WHOLE throw in the towel.. . Thus began the cycle of miss type A feeling like a quitter #realtalk . So desperate to change the way I felt daily . 🙋♀️ Sick of hiding..&&it directly correlated to playing small in all areas of my life.. . ..confidence at work, dating, making friends.. . I kept reaching for quick fix solutions.. . ..well-marketed BS that saturates this industry. I [probably] ok yes, I *knew* deep down it wasn’t legit but certainly hoped.. . ..just maybe this time will be different . Nah. Not even once 🤷♀️ . [INSERT what I know now…] um duh, outsource it aka hire a coach . That’s eventually what I did . I had created meal plans for myself of “healthy” options..(PS I’ll share one of those with you tmrw so that you can see just how bad it was && why) . So, I hired someone to teach me what to do, who understood the struggle && to hold me accountable and help this journey.. . Yanno, actually be a journey. Not one shit storm of a holding pattern.. . FINALLY. REAL, lasting results, while not completely sucking the life out of me 🥰 . The whole “die” part in the word “diet” was no longer my reality . AKA accelerated results (12 weeks mhmm yes plz) . 💃🏽Happy mind, happy body.. . Informed mind, sexy body I should say💃🏽 . One thing, that became SUPER vital to my success was inner work . Freeing myself from poor eating behaviors.. . Programs I’ve seen, donut 🍩 include this...so, . that’s what I’ve created for you . bc that’s what I seriously needed then.. . && you need now . I rode the struggle bus for some 2-3 years. It DIDNT have to take that long . Why not give yourself 12 weeks? . Click the link in my bio for full details && apply 💃🏽💪🏼
C h o c o l a t e 🧡 . . I am a chocoholic at heart & tonight I so wanted a bar of galaxy 🤦🏼♀️ but I found inner strength & turned to my two faves.. . . Fiber one 90 brownies are devine (4) Skinny whip, well I could eat the pack! (4.5) . . Now I’m happy 😃 . . #slimmingworld #slimmingworlduk #slimmingworldtreats #slimmingworldchocolate #sweettreat #healthierchoices #healthybalance
Who said you can’t eat healthy while in holiday? ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Training has been on hold for a couple of weeks, but it doesn’t mean that proper nutrition has to change too! It’s all about having a balance 🥗⠀ ⠀ It’s the been a brilliant 7 days in Corfu and I’ve gotta say the food is delicious (and healthy) here! There are plenty of great meals that I can’t wait to share when I’m back home! ⠀ ⠀ Would you like me to cover recipes and nutrition on the page, or keep it to just the training side of health and fitness? ⠀ ⠀ #nutritionfirst #nutritionmatters #foodheaven #foodisfuel #nutritioniskey #healthyfood #holiday #travel #holidayfood #fitnesslife #healthandfitness #balancedlifestyle #healthybalance #healthybalancedlifestyle #fitnessinstructor #aucklandfitness #nzfitness
Chicken Fajita Bowl 🌮 . . Another long day at work and then I forget to get the fish out the freezer 🤦♀️ I did have other meals on my menu but not quick and easy which the fish was . Husband decided to have the pizza in the freezer so I remained good and had this . As a little treat I used ( 6 ) on a ww wrap too . So glad I didn’t get the fish out this was lovely 😍 . . . #dinner #fajitasnight #swuk #swrecipes #slimmingworld #slimmingworlduk #swlifestyle #healthyeating #healthymindset #healthybalance #foodoptomising #slimmingworldfooddiary #sw #slimmingworldmember #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #bodypositive
. 🍂 OATY FLAPJACKS 🍂 . Totally borrowed this lovely recipe from @ww_paul ...thanks Paul 🙊👋🏼👍🏼 what a great idea this was! I had one sachet of ww raspberry and chia porridge left in my cupboard, 1 egg and 1 banana so thought I would try this little experiment and mash them up together, put in the oven for 30 mins on 200degs and voila 💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼 I added 4tsp golden syrup to mine and cut into 10 mini squares which brought the total to 1sp per syrupy square 😍🍪😍🍪😍 . Porridge sachets are currently buy one get one free from your local workshop so best grab some before they run out! . #ww #wwuk #wwfreestyle #wwukamb #wwambassador #weightwatchers #healthyfood #weareww #wwapp #wwfamily #wwgoldmember #smartpoints #myww #mywwjourney #wellnessthatworks #wellnesswins #diet #healthylifestyle #wwfriends #zeroheros #wwlife #weightloss #healthyrecipes #slimmingworld #wwlife #theflexeffect #lifestylechange #healthybalance #fitpoints #confidence #baking
Meet Mary. She’s an average US citizen. -Mary has white skin. -She is 38 years old. -Mary is 5’4 and weighs 168 pounds. -She wears size 9 shoes -She always has breakfast and drinks two cups of coffee per day -She eats one piece of fruit and two portions of vegetables each day -Mary exercises for less than 30 minutes per day -She earns $806 per week Are you Mary? If not, congratulations – you’re not average! And neither is almost everyone else. So why should average nutritional guidelines be a perfect fit for your unique body? Food is complicated, and so are people. Even more importantly, these recommendations are based on what the ‘average person’ needs. And that ‘average person’ doesn’t exist. In the same way that buying size 9 shoes for every person in the population would leave most people unhappy and uncomfortable, a one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition is more like one-size-fits-almost-no-one. Our PREDICT study tells us that is no one right way to eat: even identical twins have different responses to the same foods. The best way to stay healthy is to know your personal nutritional response and eat the way your body loves.

M O D E R A T I O N Do you practice the 80/20 rule? . Currently I'm in Menorca and to be totally honest I feel like I've eaten my bodyweight in bread this last week 🤦🤦. . But basically I still follow the 80/20 rule which is just a fancy way of saying ‘everything in moderation'. . Well fine, but what exactly does that mean? Well it depends on the context (and the health or fitness guru) but it's essentially the idea of eating nutrient-dense foods 80% of the time, and less-nutrient dense foods 20% of the time.⠀ . Make 80% of your food choices filling and nutrient-dense. And 20% of your food choices less-filling, less nutrient-dense. ⠀ . You can split it daily, weekly, monthly, whatever you prefer. But the goal is to allow you to fuel your body, getting all your important vitamins and minerals in but also eat some food we like just because you like the taste of it 🍫. . .

Made two kinds of pesto (kale & fresh basil-mint-cilantro) along with kale, rice and germinated lentils with fresh tomatoes and summer squashes.
An upgraded version of my peperami pasta bake filled with all the veggies 😍🍝🧀🌶 Serves 4 so 1 syn per serving! Carbs and cheese.. name a better combo 🤤 Used the Amatriciana spice mix from @jdseasonings . Even though this meal doesn’t have all the same ingredients, it’s a great herb mix to go with a pasta based dish 😌👌🏼 . . Fried chopped garlic and onions until soft, poured in the veg stock, tin of chopped tomatoes, chilli, amatriciana spice mix and the veggies of your choosing (I had mushrooms, spinach and peppers). Add the pasta and allow to simmer until the sauce has thickened and pasta is cooked, you can always add more water if needed! Topped mine with light cheddar cheese (HExA), a sliced hot @peperamitv (previous ad), chilli and more of the amatriciana herbs. . . This was my favourite recipe for a pasta bake dish to date 🙌🏼 When ordering with @jdseasonings use the code ‘CHARW20’ for 20% off your whole order, so many different spices to choose from and they’re all syn free 🤗 #ad

FLOWER AGATE 🌼 - A beautiful specimen I have come across 💕 - Flower agate has been described as energy flowing “from seed to blossom.” You can see the patterns of seeds and florals plumes dancing through the stone 💃🌸 - This sweet stone encourages self-growth with soft, feminine energy. Wonderful for entrepreneurs 🙋🏻♀️ manifesting growth in their business and new endeavors. A beautiful powerhouse stone that resonates with everyone ready to take on the next chapter in their lives 🔥 - Today, as the planet Saturn goes direct, I am meditating with this stone as I write out my path ahead to be more spiritual and purposeful in my work, love and self. So much healing was necessary this past week especially yesterday. It’s time to let my seeds blossom along my path ahead 🌷🌺🌻🌼🌸 . . . #thecoreequation #metaphysicalhealing #crystalhealing #healingstones #crystalsofinstagram #magick #witchcraft #crystallover #crystalhealer #crystalcollection #healthybalance #lifestylechanges #passionate #entrepreneurs #floweragate
Hola .. .. ¿Opciones de almuerzo? . Que tal esta 🐟 tilapia (solo sal, ajo pimienta y limón) y mucha ensalada. . Y a este plato se le puede agregar un poquito de puré, algún plátano hervido, frijolitos o arroz, sin embargo esta vez, solo eso apetecía. . Comamos variado, no siempre lo mismo, además que aburrido!! . #healthybalance #nutridiananassar #alimentacionsaludable #nutrition #energy #healthyfood #healthytliving #healthtlifestyle #comersanonocuestanada

I finished listening to the audiobook Atomic Habits by James Clear and another interesting concept he talks about is -> “The greatest threat to success is not failure its boredom.” He talks about once you get good at a habit it becomes boring and he says -> “You have to fall in love with boredom.” I don’t know about this. While I ‘ve been eating the same lunch salad at work from Panera for around the last 5 years, when I’m not at work I eat other things specifically so I don’t get bored. Same with working out. While I usually do the same workout classes right now, it’s a different workout than I was doing 2 years ago. Partially because my workout goals have changed but also because I think it keeps things interesting to try new things. I can see how our lives can be more efficient if we’re in love with being bored, but it seems much harder in execution. What do you think about this? Are your habits you’re really good at boring? Are you ok with them being boring?
Whatever makes you happy - do it! 🌟
Good health, an intelligent mind, a gracious heart, loving friendships, my family, Benny🐶, and my bed are just a few things I’m grateful for. When we take the time to practice gratitude, we begin to cultivate more of the good stuff in our lives.This game called life isn’t always kittens and rainbows, but if we take the time to follow the rainbow, it will lead us to a more fulfilling and joyful life🌈🥰💯🙏🏼
