โœจP r a c t i c e โœจI have NEVER been flexible. I started doing yoga on a daily basis 5 weeks ago to work on my mobility. I'm feeling discouraged because I feel like I should see some progress on my flexibility by now. But I haven't really documented any of it. So here is my starting point as of yesterday. I know it's gonna be a slow progress but I want this to be a lifestyle for me. I may not be able to see the physical changes quickly but the way I have felt for the last 5 weeks of practice has been magical. I have a clearer mind, I feel calm and focused. I have time to really feel appreciation for all I have. THAT is a beautiful progress. Happy Saturday, everyone ! ๐Ÿ’—

๐Ÿ“๐ŸŒ๐ŸซIts a smoothie bowl kinda morning! I was craving strawberry and chocolate so why not keep it extra healthy! I am using the @vega_team coconut and greens protein powder. I added strawberry, banana , coconutย  and cocoa nibs. The simpler the healthier. No need to complicate things. With this recipe you get TWO servings of vegetables and a serving of fruit! Not to mention the healthy fat you are getting with the coconut and the antioxidents from the delicious cocoa nibs. Your body will thank you. Happy Thursday :)ย ๐Ÿ˜‹

Anyway that I can simplify my week is a win for me. I wanted to throw my favorite ingredients in the crockpot, let it cook for 8 hours and have my meals for the week completed....so that's just what I did!  I also added a few simple spices and magic happened. โญH i g h  F i b e r  C h i l i โญ
Aka Sammi's Fall Chili 
Aka One of the greatest recipies of all time! Lol 
Makes 8 servings (serving size 12 oz )
337 calories
37g protein
34g carbs
2.8g fat

The cool thing about this chili Is the high fiber. Fiber has been known to be called the fountain of youth. I try to have the recommended 25grams per day!

DM me if you are interested in my recipe! Happy Monday ๐Ÿ’—

Never ever stop learning and growing! I'm always looking for new studies on nutrition and fitness.

Nutrition has always been a passion of mine right next to fitness and performance. Our bodies are MACHINES. That in itself is extremely fascinating and fuels my motivation to learn how to properly fuel. It gives me a sense of gratitude for what I put my body through and what I put into my body on daily basis. Also gives me a sense of self love and that is soo important. Happy HUMP day! I hope you learn something new today :)

Just enjoyed this delicious yogurt bowl after an easy morning flow. I must say this bowl is one of my favorites. Strawberry + Coconut + Cocoa nibs = pure joy! 
These past few weeks I have really been focusing on living in the moment. Its so easy to get caught up in life. Just being able to stop and enjoy the time I have in this very moment is so powerful. It cleanses my soul. 
I hope everyone has a great Friday and can find time to slow down today :0)

Happy Saturday! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐ŸŽƒ Hanging out with Poogan, trying on Halloween costumes. #pooganthelion #greatpyreneesofinstagram
I think I'm my happiest on Thursdays! I feel accomplished from working hard all week and tomorrow is Friday! Also, I'm counting down the hours untill my husband gets back. He's been away on business all week and although its been so great to have a break and a week to myself, I miss him an I get bored and the responsibilities pile up. It makes me so grateful for him and the relationship we have built. He is the greatest. #spoiled

I was listening to a podcast about learning to cut out all the toxic relationships in your life and to learn how to invest in the relationships that build you up.

Sometimes its tricky to see the ones that are toxic. Are they negative? Do you feel like your true self around them? Do they listen? Are they happy for you? And it is hard! All relationships have ups and downs...If there are more downs than ups, that is a big sign. 
Most importantly practice every single day loving yourself. When you do that you raise your standards and confidence and it will become easier for you. You are soo worth it. #happythoughts ย #selflove #happythursday

Its hump day! This week has zoomed by! I have been on track with my weekly goals and I'm feeling fabulous. We all have our ups and downs so it's okay if you haven't been quite on track. Just know you can get back on with the right mindset and don't look back :) #movingfoward #humpday

Anyone scared to try kombucha, this one is your guy. It tastes just like ginger ale! I've just started researching the benefits of this drink. Probiotics, enzymes, overall gut health to name a few. I sip on 8 oz of this throughout the morning. #guthealth #healing #kombucha #healthtips
