I love you so much 💕. I'm so happy that we get to spend time together every week, consciously make good choices for our families and ourselves 😁. We got a late start and it was freaking cold outside, but I don't think so would have done it without you. And if I did, I'm pretty sure some less than stellar choices might have fallen into my cart 😏. #cousintime #groceryshopping #makinggoodchoices #cleaneating #healthychoices #consciousdecisions #accountability

Main meals today. I had my outpatient surgical injection in the AM, so I was forced to skip breakfast. Lunch was a 2sp turkey sandwich and 1 serving of the organic TJ pea soup for 3sp. Dinner was a cauliflower rice taco bowl with lean turkey for 4sp. I was a snackaholic the rest of the day but stuck to my goal of rolling over 4sp! 🎉💜 Back update, procedure was more painful than I expected but doc says tomorrow I should be feeling like I was pre-injections and hopefully some relief will come through later in the week. #ww #wwsupport #wwfooddiary #goaldigger #wwlifetime #makinggoodchoices #wwinstagram #wwnyc #wwnj #wwlongisland

> the attitude of gratitude <⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Gratitude is simple, yet profound. Simple in the sense that we all experience long before we know the name for it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As infants, we experience hunger and are grateful when food shows up. We're scared then grateful when a loving person takes us into her or his arms.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These basic feelings are the first inklings of gratitude. Later the feeling is connected with a response, usually by some adult who says, "Say 'thank you'..." We learn to associate the happy feeling of receiving with the necessity of acknowledging the person or source of the gift.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of the disciplines in enriching our soul is the simple act, on a daily basis, of expressing gratitude for those important and small things that grace our lives.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It is deceptively simple, for it is something we have been doing all of our lives. For that very reason, it can easily become perfunctory and shallow. When we let gratitude become a habit of the heart, we can discover that this simple practice can reverberate powerfully in our lives. The more we practice it, the more the reasons we have to be grateful.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Gratitude has become a dinner conversation in my house. Most days we share a significant moment of our day and why we are grateful for it. We don't focus on the highlights, or all the good things, we give attention to the lessons of life, the ones that tickle the heartstrings, whether they stem from joy or happiness, loss, pain or failure.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Gratitude is a healing balm during times of grief, anger and self-pity - the fuller our gratitude the less space there is for negative emotions. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It reminds us that we are part of something larger. It puts us heartfully in touch with others and the magic of life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As the year draws to a close, I would love to invite you to share 3 significant moments in 2019 that you are most grateful for... go ahead and put them in the comments 👇💬⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ May GRATITUDE be the first step we take towards the New Year. 💕🥰🙏

#lunchtime. 🍅🥗 Nutrition is a big part of our lives. When people talk about losing weight or just living a healthy life style. Nutrition plays more important role in it! Everyday we get the chance to make choices! Making a healthier choice when it comes to your meals and snacks is a choice you will NEVER regret.❤️🥗🍅 One reason I love beach body is that they give me a nutrition plan that's easy and makes sense!! I was so lost when it come to nutrition a few years ago when starting my health journey. When I stumbled upon #Beachbody it made my life easier. Plus the best part about it.. It WORKED to help me achieve my goals‼️‼️ If you need help with nutrition I would love to help you out!! Send me a message!! You don't have to feel lost with your nutrition. ❤️ 🤗

One little habit can set all of the others into motion. It just has to be the right one. What would it be for you?

Da saga marmitas, hoje uma com sobras de assado do fim de semana. Como acrescentar algo mais? Através de uma salada fresca, colorida, que vai acrescentar mais valor nutricional. Preparada com frango assado, batata doce assada, tomate cherry e rúcula.. . Rúcula, tantas vezes desvalorizada, é uma verdura pobre em calorias e muitissimo rica em fibras, ou seja, óptima para combater quadros de obstipação e de diverticulite 🥗🍗 . #healthylifestyle #healthyrecipes #healthy #healthyfood #health #foodphotography #foodporn #foodie #foodstagram #foodstylist #food #dietaequilibrada #oporto #photooftheday #picoftheday #instafoods #instapicture #instapics #confyfood #eatwellbewell #eatrealfood #makinggoodchoices #easylunch #marmitasaudavel #marmita

Obligations keep you tethered Fear keeps captured In a place the mind longs to escape 🌺 Doing the right thing is not easy but it will give you a peace of mind. 🌺 Denying the truth that is staring at you will not make things any better. 🌺 Choices #lifelived #parenting #healthyrelationships #singlelife #makinggoodchoices #positivechange #changeishardbutworthit #loveyourself #fears

So here I sit finally coherent enough to post. I went to the hospital with chest pain on Monday night and was having a catheter done and a stent put in on Tuesday afternoon. 🤦🏻‍♂️ #godisgod #outoftheblue #gymrat #luckyme #makinggoodchoices #dontignoreyourbody #recoveringaddict

This IG community has yet to let me down in making friends with internet strangers!! 😋 Tonight I got an opportunity to meet @blaires_eatsagram while she's visiting from the South and spend some needed time with @jess.eats.and.drinks . It's amazing how our virtual world just translates so seamlessly sometimes in person. If you were on the outside looking in, you would not have known that it was Jess and I's first date with Blaire! 😂 Great conversation and laughs. Bonus treats were included. Jess hooked us up with all the @badabeansnacks and Blaire brought us my favorite cookie from Levain 🤤 It's not in my plan for today but you best believe I cut that thing up into 4's to work it in the rest of the week. #ww #wwsupport #wwfooddiary #goaldigger #wwlifetime #makinggoodchoices #wwinstagram #wwnyc #wwnj #wwlongisland #bettertogether #wwsisterhood #wwcommunity

During this season we often think about the best presents we’ve ever received. For me, I can say the one that sticks out is when I got my first cabbage patch doll, a very long time ago. But since it IS better to give than to receive, I want you to tell me about the best gift you've ever GIVEN. If I had to choose mine, it would be the gifts given to allow someone to experience and see something special. Now it’s your turn! Share below or take a pic, share in your stories and tag me! . . . #healthyqr #yqrhealth #anotherwaytolookatit #bettertogivethanreceive #wellnesswarrior #cancerconqueror #cancersurvivor #cancerfighter #depressionhelp #makinggoodchoices #entrepreneurjourney #supportive #yougotthis #yqr #saskatchewan #prairiegirl #warriormindset #takingcareofyourself #overcomers #couragetochange #stayinyourmagic #stayradiantxo #liveauthentic #flashesofdelight #entrepreneurlife #lessworkmorelife #somethingnewiscoming #outsidemybounds #startingover #takingachance

> conscious gifting < Each of us carries within ourselves a set of rules about gift-giving. Seldom acknowledged and rarely discussed, these rules determine what we give, how much we give, and to whom we give. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Despite living only in our minds and expectations, the unwritten rules of gift-giving govern everything from how we give of our time to what we put under the Christmas tree. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When we don’t understand why we gift as we do, it’s easy to enter the land of the absurd: making a midnight raid on the supermarket’s toy aisle when we discover that one child’s stocking holds fewer gifts than the other or burning the candle at both ends trying to do everything for everyone. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Bringing our gift-giving "rules” into focus is the first step to bringing sanity and simplicity back to the season. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We need to think carefully about how we assess value when giving. Divorcing considerations of what we paid, what else we gave, and what we got in return allows us to reach for the true values of connection and gratitude that, ideally, underlie the practice of giving gifts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Gifting is not about keeping up with the Jones's, going into debt, emphasising status or a sense of obligation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When we stretch ourselves and our values, the joy of giving gets lost, and as women, our caregiving nature lends us to overextend ourselves during the holiday season. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When it comes to the unwritten rules of gift-giving, there is only one right answer, the one that is right for you! My wish is that you make it conscious! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ By taking a long, hard look at the beliefs that underlie your giving decisions, you empower yourself to give consciously, in harmony with your own values. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And to inspire a season of conscious, empowered giving, here are a few of my fav local NZ bossbabes offering Divine Gifts: @sarahvassella.creative - mandala art @being_rekhast - gift cards @wharfroadcafe - nourishing food @gypsetyogi - sacred selfcare @yogawithinnz - wellness vouchers @coromandelflavour - conscious living books 💝💝💝

So for the first time ever (I know, I know) I have purchased for myself a pair of leggings/jeggings. And I plan on wearing them out in public. Lol. Headed to my son's winter band concert tonight. Six months and 74lbs ago I would have never imagined myself wearing anything similar to this. I'm feeling pretty proud of myself for stepping out of my comfort zone tonight!! . . . . . @ww #ww #nsv #losingweight #weightloss #weightlossjourney #livinglifeandlosingweight #usingthetools #countingpoints #makinggoodchoices #weightwatchers #wwmichigan #wwtransformation #lifestylechanges #newclothes #somethingdifferent #leggings #sweater #oldnavy #mirrorselfie #canttakeagoodselfie

So Last night after my fast I had supper, had dessert and then had anxiety like bastard! Since losing so much weight and feeling so much better I’ve started applying for different jobs again and I had a few interviews today so my anxiety last night was through the roof and all I wanted to do was eat! I didn’t but it was hard, like unbelievably hard and this morning on my way to the first interview I was so tempted to stop at the gas station and buy whatever just to calm my anxiety. Very proud I didn’t and hopefully something good will come of this. Again that’s why I say important to work on your mental game not just your physical one. You got admit where you have the problems and deal with them. #fatchancetrying #dontgetdiscouraged #dealingwithanxiety #anxiety #makinggoodchoices #ketoweightloss #ketodiet #ketotransformation #ketoforbeginners #intermittentfasting #stayingontrack #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #trackingmacros #ketocanada #ketocanadian #ketocanada🇨🇦 #ketolifestyle #feelgood #ketobeginner #ketoformentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthjourney # #betterself #betterselfesteem #keepitsimple
