Today I'm going to bring you along to share my day! First stop was chores. They've been out to graze already. So now it's hay for everyone, along with a check of water and mineral/kelp. Most importantly a check of everyone to be sure they are healthy and doing well. It's a tough job to start your day with sheep visits, but I manage. #fiberfarm#farmlife#adayinthelife
At the age of 22 I started really making an effort to live a healthier life. To become stronger, eat better and be more conscious of how I treat my body and what I put into it.
Since then, its been a long string of many trials and errors. What has and has not worked for me and learning to adapt when my body changes.
The most consistent and valuable lesson I have learned is the importance of balance, frequency and the true definition of moderation. To keep all this unison ultimately comes with the result of consistent training.
My daily diet tends to vary slightly depending on my activity level for the day but here is occasional day-in-the-life:
• 1 cup of green tea in the morning faithfully. •2 @bowmar_nutrition Protien Hot Chocolate shakes with almond butter, milk and strawberries • @mtsnutrition Greens shake. (This usually contains spinach, cilantro and some fruit) •I usually eat 5-6 small meals a day (including my shakes) • I have most of my carbs in the morning and typically do not eat many breaded or grain items. • When I do work out I have @mtsnutrition Machine fuel intra- workout BCAAs
A typical week for me is 5-6 training days which includes 2 HIIT & Yoga days. Sometimes one of those days supplement an active rest day. In which I will do a long Yoga sesh & 4 Strength training/ weight lifting days.
I like the "listen" to your body approach. Depending on how I am feeling I'll switch it up every now and then too.🤗💪
I’m sat at my desk ready for a day full of video editing, photo editing and copy writing. I’m hoping if I work all day today I can take a long weekend by scheduling posts and not being available at all for work. It’s struck me that in 6-7 weeks there’s going to be a new addition to our family and while all four of us are absolutely delighted and anticipating her arrival, this is the last few weeks as a mother of two. The last few weeks of having a hand for each child. So I’m going to make the absolute most of this incredible bond the four of us already have which doesn’t include my phone bleeping deadlines and minutes of my day taken up with graphic design and coding. Thursday is the new Friday! 🌟
She's my sole companion in my daily adventures.. and un-adventures. Each day with her is a treat. My beautiful Ms. Daisy Sue. I certainly love her, so.
Things have been particularly emotionally stressful the past couple weeks. With #mentallillness I'm accustomed to the highs and lows. There is no schedule or indicator on when and how long each episode will last... And in the throes of the lows, it often seems there is no way out. Nearly five years ago, I was introduced to my first #goldenretriever . I didn't know it at the time, but Mr. Poopy was destined to be my #emotionalsupportcompanion . He began my love of these beautiful babies. I miss my Poopy Puppy terribly, and each time I visit with him at the ex:'s he cries for me. #heartbreaking Ms. Daisy Sue is new to this emotional Rollercoaster of a life I have, but she offers that same comfort that Poopy instinctively shared with me. She always just seems to know when I'm at my lowest and snuggles up particularly close.
As I feel myself pulling out of that wave of darkness, I have an overwhelming sense of gratitude that she is in my life. We're doing this #singlelife together.. And this sweetness seems to make it much less depressing.
I'll be honest... I kinda think my life is pretty great with her. I'm afforded opportunities that I've never imagined I would have. I know, in this moment, I've made the best decision for my life.
