Fueling your body properly is as important as getting exercise. I am not doing a hard physical job 7-9 hours a day nor am I working out 🏋️ 6 hours a day. To get all the nutrients my body needs I would need to eat 4000 calories a day #weighing300pounds or hire a full time cook/nutritionist to keep me balanced. And after working out, the blender takes too long so shake it up is required. You don’t need more protein. You need more real food that can heal your body. #proteinisoverrated I mean really, when was the last time you heard of someone being protein deficient and headed to the hospital? #likenever So I shook, I guzzled and I fueled. #gome #realfoodheals#ownyourday#bringthejoy
Setbacks happen. They are part of life. Whether or not you decide to let them take over your life is the question. Most setbacks are blown up in our mind to be worse than you think. Be bold enough to face your setbacks with even greater comebacks. #ownyourday#bringthejoy#bodymindsoul#bravonation#dare2dream
Life will always be complicated.. it's all about the mindset you CHOOSE to have, and deciding to be happy even when times are difficult; believing that things don't have to GET better in order for you to FEEL better. And that there are so many more blessings, and so much to be grateful for regardless of the circumstances. Especially now, when it seems as though everything is troublesome and chaotic-- Lets learn to honor the struggle and find joy in the most ordinary moments...to generate happiness, love, and gratitude within ourselves wherever we are. To take ownership of our feelings, and remind ourselves that life doesn't have to be easy in order for it to be good! #mindset #honorthestruggle#bringthejoy#inspiration#growthmindset #mantra
This bride is cooler than cool. Her whole design idea centered around Wes Anderson; hence, this enlarged quirky moment for their sweetheart table. Add in 23 3' balloons on the tables at varying heights to feel like the balloons are floating out of the structure and bam, we've got Wes Whimsy at the @ivyroomchicago. On top of it all, the bride was truly the kindest which makes for a fantastic Sunday install. The only sad part was that it was the first time MVP Poppie didn't attend! 😢 #stopgrowingsofast | 👆🏻to Insta stories for more behind the scenes!
I just can't take the two-year-old cuteness 😍...this little one has my heart so filled with love...and sometimes has my heart in pieces with her tantrums, but then moments later she pieces everything back together with this smile, a "sorry mama," a hug, a kiss and a giggle. 👊🏻 Power to the parents who have successfully parented through the two year old phase because GOSH is it a rollercoaster! 🎢 I have so much to learn! Thank goodness I value getting to learn something new every day and I am adding "parenting learning curve" to my gratitude list because it is an inevitable way to always.be.learning! #elliebelle #momlife #mompreneur #parenting #gratitude #patience #learning #alwayslearning #bemore #bemoremovement#bringthejoy #iloveher
See that smile? That smile illustrates What it looks like To VIBRANTLY LIVE From the Heart! That smile is of pure joy. That smile is of my own recognition and realization that I am DOING the work! Each and every day I AM doing the work. Living vibrantly is not only about how we nourish ourselves with food and exercise, it's also about how we create our way of living, day in and day out. I've had the victim mentality before, I've been it what felt like the pits of despair and dark downward spirals. Today? I feel joy and love from within. That is where I NEEDED to begin; WITHIN. I needed to figure out what I was doing day in and day out. I needed to paint a picture and visualize how I wanted each day to feel. I've by no means reached a summit of any kind, but I have reached many meaningful milestones. That smile represented in this image was built on hard work, diligent effort, and the continuation of being a constant work in progress. Wishing YOU an absolutely WONDERFUL and SERENE Sunday! Cheers! #continualworkinprogress#vibrantlivingfromtheheart #BeYou #LifeIsWhy #choosehappiness#choosekindness#livealifeyoulove#bringthejoy#fuelyourpurpose#showlovetoday #Smile
