Food is a major part of our lives. We love to cook it, eat it and share it with friends. But the key word in that first sentence is "part". Our lives, our identities, are made up of so many different, beautiful, messy things. They're less a designer throw and more a hand-me-down patchwork quilt. But that's what makes us unique and human and healthy. When any one part becomes the absolute focus – no matter what it is – we very quickly find ourselves on a dangerous path. We're trying every day to seek balance and shift more of our focus onto the things that really matter. When it comes to food, that means thinking less about quantity and calories and more about how blessed we are to have it and the joy it can bring when it's used to gather loved ones together.
Day 1 of 2 and we've already packed it full! Saw some things, ate some stuff. Now rest time before the main event, seeing Josh Groban in Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812. #girlabouttown#seeallthesights#eatallthefood
Where are all my chinese food lovers at?! 🍜😍
I get asked all the time how I stick to my meal plan 95% of the time and not cheat or fall off. That's because I don't give up any foods that I love, so I don't have to 'cheat.' You might think this chicken lo mein can't possibly be healthy, but this meal also falls in my 95% on trackness (is that even a word?! 😂) AND it's even gluten free! 😱🙌
I will never understand why people feel the need to get rid of whole food groups, restrict themselves like crazy and then wonder why they are miserable and can't lose weight! Don't make weight loss any harder than it has to be!
If you struggle in the nutrition department, then we totally need to talk, so you can ENJOY your food, have plenty of energy and continue seeing the weight loss progress you CRAVE without all the freaking headaches, counting calories and restrictions! 👌
