One of the hardest concepts to address is our own weight stigma and fatphobia - many of us don’t realize we have it until we become aware of all the beliefs, assumptions, and judgements we have about people in larger bodies. If you’re afraid to gain weight, judge people by their body size, believe that being above a certain weight automatically makes someone unhealthy, or make jokes about being fat then there’s some weight bias going on that needs some work.
.
This is a major social justice issue. Our society is not safe for all body sizes and it’s not talked about enough. It’s also being shown that weight stigma, chronic dieting, or being underweight is actually worse for our health than living at a higher weight. I won’t even go into all the disordered or inaccurate information diet culture brainwashes us to believe.
.
Like racism and homophobia, we were not born hating others, these are things we learn along the way. We have the power to unlearn this, change our culture for future generations, and work to end these prejudices. Fatphobia directly affects and victimizes those in larger bodies but it also affects people in all bodies - consider the lengths people go to try to stay or become small.
.
I’m going to get very different looks than someone twice my size who eats this fried chicken sandwich in public and that’s really fucked up. But that’s just part of it, we don’t all get the same treatment by doctors, employers, teachers, clothing companies, and our fellow humans.
.
As long as this world is unsafe for some bodies, it is unsafe for all. Learn more about weight stigma, challenge your assumptions and beliefs about weight, set boundaries on fat talk, add body diversity to your real life and social media feeds, and work on appreciating your body.

Little tip Tuesday: treat yourself, strategically.
#
Enjoy dessert? Me too. I’m human. But, I also have a raging sweet tooth/sugar dragon.
#
Instead of continually tempting myself with allergen-free sugar-laden treats in the all too accessible kitchen pantry, I’ve learned to keep my sweets out of the house.
#
If I have instilled the social sweets rule. If I want dessert, I leave the house, park a ways from the restaurant/shop for some movement, enjoy it on site, savor all the bites desired, and head back home. I always take a friend, or my hubby (who is also a friend?) #
I don’t eat it alone, in shame, with guilt, or excessively. Plus, my house remains a haven.
#
Social sweets y’all✨😏💁🏼‍♀️ You deserve it!

Day 83
.
I have been starting the day off tracking and drinking water but forget by the afternoon.
.
I'm hoping that when we're back in the school routine things will be a little easier. School routine starts tomorrow!
.
I will say that I haven't been binging or emotional eating lately. I've been practicing awareness today. Not an easy thing, but of course I'm brand new to it.
.
I had the day off today so that I could spend quality time with the kiddos on their last day before school starts back up.
.
We played nerf guns, made slime,  did a little school clothes exchanges. By about 4pm they were off-the-charts WILD!
.
I can't blame it on sugar, dye, or caffeine. Screaming, yelling, running around, fighting, wow!
.
The Old Navy store clerk "wow, they are really wild!" Tell me about it! Lol. I just hope they are not like that at school. Please please!
.
Got everything ready this evening that I could. Have to get up a little early tomorrow for 1st day of school pictures.
.
Night!

Been craving soup so I made @paleo_newbie_recipes easy cabbage and sausage soup. Just as good as I remember and only took 30 min to throw together! Ingredients besides salt, pepper and thyme to the right #overallhealth #foodfreedom #foodisfuel #foodisfood #intuitiveeating
HELLOOO beautiful 🍪s!! I would like to say THANK YOU... for following me and supporting my journey. But do you know who You are following? 👋🏻My wildest vision was born The moment fitness saved my life...Facing depression & anxiety for years with fitness being my only treatment for so long, I found so much peace/healing in exercise. Unfortunately, it was truly just a physical bandaid on a wound that needed stitches. I was suicidal & always in fear of if my depression would drive me into a wall, hang me from the ceiling, or drown me in a tub of water. I had no idea what to do about it so I relied upon fitness to patch me up.

I was seeing such amazing physical results but something was still missing...I developed a very unhealthy relationship with food & exercise & even though I live such an amazing life & was happier in my body shape... I was still depressed.

How could this be? I thought my cure was in the weights + obsessive restriction of food? 
THAT’S when I realized something...Fitness is about Building More than Just a Body...THAT was the moment I discovered my purpose. But I needed to heal a lot for myself before I could help others. So I focused on the root of the problem...self-loathing thoughts & behavior patterns. I found ways to love myself through actions, intentions, & beliefs! 
I became so invested in personal development+self discovery that out of the DARKEST times of my life came to be what I know to be my souls purpose... I’m here to eradicate self-loathe on the planet. It is my belief that the more we love ourselves, the more love we radiate out, & thus, the more we can receive! I believe that w/ self-love anything we desire can come to us from a place of ease/flow because when we love ourselves so much we are naturally inspired to move & fuel our bodies or pursue our goals in ways that help us have the most EPIC human experience.

I am passionate about coaching people w/ an emphasis on the importance of self-love, mindset, behavior change modification, & wellness development ALLLL coming together w the proper training and nutrition lifestyle built to and for YOU!  I appreciate you being here, following me, it helps me reach more ppl 🌎💝

Spent the weekend at the beach and now I’m back to business. Didn’t go as long today, but I’m adding a lot more running and my pace is getting better every time. Also ordered some @brooksrunning shoes because my old Nikes aren’t cutting it anymore 🙃. My goal is to hit ONEderland before a trip with my bestie and sister in a few weeks....

💥WATCH MY STORY TO SEE HOW I MEAL PREPPED IN UNDER 1.5 HOURS💥
.
Meal prepping helps me stay on track during the week and keeps me from just grabbing the first thing I see in the fridge
.
I find that when I am short on time and don’t have meals prepped in advance I chose to go for convenience which doesn’t always allow me to move in the direction of my goals 😅
.
On this week’s menu we have:
- Mexican bowls 🍚
- Chicken, rice, asparagus, and sweet potatoes 🍠 - Salmon, coconut rice, and broccoli 🥦 .
What are some of your favorite meals?👇🏻

Tonight I made Indian butter chicken for the first time. And I can guarantee it will not be the last. It was soooooo good. I might have leftovers tonight before I go to bed because it’s that good. It’s been years since I’ve made something for dinner I was this proud of. And wouldn’t you know, it was whole30/paleo compliant. (Except for the rice. #foodfreedom) Because google. Man. It’s a good thing to feel like myself again. Also, confession. I spent a small fortune on all.the.spices. So I’m really glad it all worked out. 😂 #puremichelle

What does eating locally mean to you?
.
.
.
Everything on this plate from the vegetables and steak to the butter and sea salt are sourced from local farmers and artisans. .
.
.
To me, local means:
.
.
Greater nutrient density. The fresher food is and the more recently it came out of the ground, the higher in vitamins and minerals it is. This is often reflected in deeper colours and richer flavours than conventional or imported produce. .
.
Animals are more likely to be treated with love and respect, and allowed freedom to roam and graze. Not only is this more humane, but it also is reflected in the quality of meat and eggs you receive. .
.
Buying from local farms also supports small businesses and their families. Over time, the increased demand for local, organic foods will encourage grocery stores to carry more of these items! .
.
.
Where are some of your local farms? Mine are @lostsavannasoap for their meat boxes, bison, and handmade soap; @clevercrowseasalts for their greens, organic chickens and sea salt; and Sieffert’s farm for all things fruits and vegetables!

Mine are @lostsavannasoap for their meat boxes, bison, and handmade soap; @clevercrowseasalts for their greens, organic chickens and sea salt; and Sieffert’s farm for all things fruits and vegetables! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #balancednotclean  #foodasmedicine  #prolactinoma  #hormonebalance  #hormonehealth  #pcosdiet  #holistichealth  #holisticnutrition  #selfcare  #intuitiveeating  #balance  #alternativemedicine  #foodfreedom  #infertility  #amenorrhea  #hypothalamicamenorrhea  #amenorrhearecovery  #hormonehealth  #naturalfertility  #fertilitydiet  #fertilitywarrior  #fitpregnancy  #healthypregnancy  #hormonebalancing  #plantmedicine  #holisticnutrition  #holisticnutritionist  #nutritionist  #herbalist  #localfarmers  #supportlocal 
Food Freedom.  What does that even mean and how do you achieve this?  I get how fixated on our problems with food we can get.  I get how much food can feel like a horrible burden and at the same time, your best friend.

The thing is, your relationship with food is a byproduct of your relationship with your emotionality.  Food is not your issue, although it may seem like it's the thing that causes you the most pain right now.

There's a whole other world just below the surface, that food is covering up.  I help you peel back the layers to uncover that world. One layer at a time your self awareness begins to increase.

One layer at a time your understanding of who you really are begins to unfold. One layer at a time you start to come home to your body. One layer at a time you start to accept and even love the parts of you you've denied and hid from the world.

One layer at a time you begin to feel. You begin to integrate and you begin to heal. As you learn to feel the pain you've pushed down, you begin to have more access to joy.  You feel lightness in your body.

You start to trust yourself and the Universe.  You start to believe that you are worthy and you learn to meet your needs internally. You become empowered in your own life. And then you realize food is no longer an issue.  You trust yourself around food and you make choices that feel best to you.

Your mind is no longer consumed by food and you experience Food Freedom without even talking about food!  I'm currently taking new one-on-one clients! If you're ready to end the battle with food I'd love to hop on a discovery call to see if we're a good fit!  Comment below or send me a PM. 🙏  Here's to Food Freedom!

We want 👏🏻 ALL 👏🏻 THE 👏🏻 VEGGIES 👏🏻 AND 👏🏻 ALL 👏🏻 THE 👏🏻 EGGS. •
•
This is our ultimate go-to Whole 30 meal. 
Ingredients: 2 eggs, 1/4 zucchini, 1/4 onion, 4 cherry tomatoes, 1 tbsp EVOO, salt, pepper & paprika. 
1. Start by sautéing thinly sliced zucchini, onion and tomatoes over medium heat in the EVOO until golden brown & translucent.
2. Whisk eggs with salt, pepper, paprika (or whatever other spices you have around) together. 
3. Add veggies into the egg mixture and mix once more. 
4. Throw it all back into your sauté pan. 
5. As the eggs cook, ease around the edges of the omelette with a spatula, then fold it over in half when it starts to turn golden brown. 
6. Throw it all on a plate. Serve with @franksredhot or some salsa if you’re feeling frisky. •
•
This is the perfect recipe to throw in all those veggies hanging out in the back of the fridge. Some of our favorites include mushrooms, bell peppers and broccoli.

Full day of eating complete! I really liked keeping myself accountable with taking photos of everything I ate today. I still feel I overate but I did so much better today than I have been.
-
Breakfast - Sliced apple with pb and lily's chocolate chips. 
Snack 1- Terra sweet potato / parsnip chips 
Lunch- Veggies with dip, meat loaf, potatoes, and corn. This is the meal I needed most improvement on today. I felt very very full and ate beyond my needs. On the bright side, I stayed out of the work candy stash! 
Snack 2- a peice of cheesy bread from little ceasers that my brother gave me
Dinner- PB and J, sweet potato chips, and carrots with dill dip.

Cleaning out the fridge this evening, and I thought this would turn into a random meal but it worked!
.
My body has been craving all the #carbs lately, so I’ve been listening. But I still try to keep those starchy carbs as close to “natural” as possible, like potatoes.
.
To me, that’s what intuitive eating and having a good relationship with food is. Making healthy choices, but still listening to what my body is asking for.
.
Those red things on my salad are beets. And honestly I never liked beets because the are too earthy for my taste. But @lovebeets has an amazing white wine and balsamic beet that is already cooked and ready to eat. I cannot get enough of them, I eat them straight from the carton🤦🏼‍♀️. #tryitout #causetheyaregoodforyou .

Whole30 day 13 dinner! Shredded salsa chicken salad. Might not always look pretty - but definitely always tastes good. 
Added @traderjoes double roasted salsa to the chicken and cooked for 10 mins in the instant pot. Put it on top of a bed of romaine and coleslaw mix. Topped it with sauteed onions, blackened peppers, cherry tomatoes, guacamole using @eatwholly mashed avocado, cilantro, and @sietefoods jalapeno hot sauce.

Last nights meal - homemade chicken strips, yucca fries and the easiest honey mustard sauce EVER. (Hint: it’s literally honey + mustard).
.
.
.
I don’t do grains often as they promote inflammation, affect digestion, and contain anti nutrients that prevent mineral absorption. When i do choose to cook with them, I make sure they’re sprouted or fermented - this breaks down the problematic phytates and oxalates which improves digestion and increases nutrient bioavailability. Sprouted foods are also more nutrient dense, and fermented foods are good for your gut! .

I haven’t been on Instagram for long. It was actually something I avoided for a long time because I had this idea in my head that the wellness community would be full of pictures of yogis doing fancy poses and Crossfitters crossfitting, and I’m just not about all that. It’s a trap for comparison, and if there’s one thing I know about myself is I would rather be enjoying my husband and preparing elaborate meals than stuck in a gym for 3-4 hours a day working on my abs. I’m not hating on anyone else’s priorities. I’m just saying, I love the peaceful poses, and now that I see Instagram has some of those too, I think I’ll stay a while.

Fajita Salad...THE BOMB!🙌💯💁‍♀️.
————————-
Whole 30/ Paleo/ Gluten Free/  Low Carb / Sugar Free!! (#21dsd 👏) ..
.. This was seriously better than ANY salad I’ve EVER had out at a restaurant!! BONUS: it was cheaper AND I had the peace of mind knowing ALL THE INGREDIENTS!! Yay!! 💯👏👏👏
..
.. Details:
🌿Organic Arugula from @traderjoes (happens to be my favorite green!!).
🌿 @nomnompaleo Sheet Pan Fajitas leftover from dinner 🙌 ( recipe on her blog).
🌿 fresh cilantro from my herb garden 😋💁‍♀️.
🌿 chopped green onion.
🌿 @primalkitchenfoods Ranch ( I CANNOT believe this is the first time I tried this!!!! It was the BOMB!!💯🔥👊) 🌿 squeeze of lime and red pepper flakes ( this took the flavor OVER THE TOP!!🔥😋) . ..
Have you tried this dressing before?  @primalkitchenfoods has THE BEST ingredients!  And, though I’m always saying how easy it is to make your own, I have to say, having a healthy pre-made dressing sure did make lunch easier today!!! Tell me in the comments below if you tired it...or if there’s another (WITH CLEAN INGREDIENTS) that you love!!! 👇👇👇👇

It’s such a pain to air fry up a big bag of chicken thigh strips, but man do I love being able to pull them right out of the fridge & dumping them on top of a salad! Such an easy meal!

Let’s talk about a question I get a lot...”Do I really even need a coach to do a Whole30?”
.
The answer is NO! Of course not. Everything you need to know about the Whole30 program is available for free on the Whole30 website. You can absolutely do a Whole30 solo, in fact, that’s how I did my first round!
.
With that said, hiring a Certified Whole30 coach is a GAME CHANGER. Do you know how many people I’ve talked to that have told me “Well, I’ve TRIED to do a Whole30 a few different times now...but I’ve never been able to make it the Whole 30 days” This is unfortunate but also normal, friends! Taking on something as epic as a Whole30 is A LOT of work. If you don’t go into it we’ll prepared + with a solid support system, it can be difficult to follow through on that commitment to yourself.
.
If we want to see massive results we have to take massive action, right?
.
You can set yourself up for success by joining my September Whole30 group. I’m a Certified Whole30 coach that can provide you with the expertise, resources, support, and community to rock your September Whole30 + finally keep that promise to yourself.
.
You can find out all of the details about my September group, including the goodies you’ll receive in your welcome box, on my website www.erinnlauchner.com (or click the link in my bio >> @erinnlauchner )
.
Registration is open now through Tuesday, August 28th only! Reserve your spot now!

After a mostly empty fridge, cauliflower pizza from Costco and leftover arugula must do.

Thank the Lord for superfood shakes, a local produce stand and a kid that almost eats all things green under the pressure of hunger 🤣#sorrynotsorry .

Day 8: 16/8 Intermittent Fasting 
So the other day I’m at my sisters house and it’s after dinner and my SIL is chowing down on this really delicious looking ice cream cone and all I could think about is how much I wanted that cone. Except I didn’t.  When I stopped to think about it, my belly was full from supper and I wasn’t hungry.  I wanted it cause I couldn’t have it. Funny how that works. 
Mornings are getting easier, most of the time. 10 am hits and it’s like an internal switch “think of all things food” comes on and then the hunger pains hit.  This is when I grab for my water/tea to try to help subside.  The cravings only seem to be real when I’m thinking of food. If I’m staying busy or mind is elsewhere I don’t seem to be “hungry” or I don’t notice it I suppose. 
I still have not weighed myself. However, for a NSV (Non scale victory) noticeably I’m sleeping better and can see a little shrinking in a certain area. Not much but it’s a start and that’s a plus. Also, I starting to binge and snack less.  I’m start to recognize when I’m full before becoming over full and not snacking when I’m bored. 
It’s definitely a start in the right direction.

I just finished re reading this book and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to know how to raise children who are intuitive eaters.📚 I read it back in college but decided I needed to pick it up again now that I am in the throws of parenting.👦🏼👧🏼👶🏼

Teaching your children to eat proper foods without trying to over control them is very stressful! This book breaks down the division of responsibility between parent and child and also gives helpful tips on how to get your child to eat a variety of foods.🍇🥖🍕🥗 It’s definitely helped with my own children and teaching them the importance of meal times and listening to your body.

Have you read it? If not, what’s one thing you struggle with when it comes to eating and your children? If you have, I want to hear what your favorite take away was!👇🏻

Pan con Mantequilla y Azúcar FIT! 🥞🍞🍯 para todas a las que les hacían esto de chiquitas y se quedaron con el antojo...Thanks Mom 🙈🤦🏼‍♀️!! Apta para TODAS las edades 😉
.
2 Panes Integrales, de preferencia Sara Lee 45kcal o Silueta Bimbo para que sea un snack o postre más ligero. Lo pones a tostar y luego ya calientito le agregas lo siguiente:
.
1/2 TBSP en cada Pan de Alguna de las siguientes opciones: .
1. Olivio (así se llama la marca, adjunte foto y lo venden en HEB!) es aceite de oliva batido hasta agarrar textura y sabor de mantequilla) .
.
2. Ghee (Mantequilla Clarificada) esta aparte es beneficiosa para la digestión y los dolores de cabeza! .
.
3. PAM sabor mantequilla (2-3 sprays a cada pan OJO antes de meter a la tostadora así queda mas rico) el Aceite en Spray es bueno ya que utilizas menos cantidad que usando la mantequilla o el aceite no en spray!
.
.
Endulzante de tu Preferencia

4. Yo recomiendo Truvia o Monk Fruit ya que tienen la textura mas parecida al Azúcar! Pero igual puedes utilizar Splenda o la Stevia de tu preferencia!

I was so keen for my dinner that I couldn’t even keep my eyes off it... 👀😍 I love date nights! It can be challenging at times to go out and try new things, but nowadays it’s one of my absolute favourite things to do ever! A few years ago I never went out to eat and only really had a small number of foods I could eat comfortably at home too, but now I’m trying new yummy foods all of the time! My only regret is that I didn’t start doing this earlier because omg I can’t believe I once lived my life never having tried halloumi, pasta, Indian food, sushi, mushrooms, mangoes, Doritos, soup, churros... the list goes on! Food freedom has changed my life for the better, and unlocked parts of living that I hadn’t even known existed before now. Only downside is that my bank account isn’t really enjoying going out to eat several times a week, but oh well 😂😂
~~~
My advice for those of you who are struggling with achieving food freedom is to slowly introduce new foods into what you normally eat, and to start doing so ASAP because the truth is that there’s never going to be the ‘perfect moment’ when you feel up to the challenge - you just have to feel afraid and do it anyway! Believe me, there’s no day like today, and every little thing you do to challenge you eating disorder today will contribute to creating a happier, healthier tomorrow! ~~~
Stay strong everyone 💕💕

Umm, how fun are these!? 🇺🇸😎

👁Eye am obsessed (see what I did there?) with eyelash tinting!! 🖤
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌷 I wear minimal makeup in my day to day life, but I always feel so face-naked without mascara! My lashes are dark at the base but light on the ends, so they look so stubby! This lash tint procedure uses a vegetable based dye, and colors your lashes in 15 minutes 💗
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌷 The results are amazing and last 6-8 weeks. I also have super sensitive skin and no problems with any irritation! Give it a try if you want a low maintenance option for your lashes #eyelashes #beauty #selfcare 🖤🖤🖤

When I decided last summer to focus on my nutrition and learn how to eat a more balanced diet I had no idea how much of an impact it would have on my whole family. .
.
It only took me a few weeks to realize that I shouldn’t look at it as “I need to go on a diet so I can lose weight...”, but “I need to make better food choices to help my family be healthier”. .

I was very open when I started counting my macros that this was something temporary. This was something I had to commit to for a few months so I could learn more about and what I was eating to make better food choices and so I could FEEL better. It was a lifestyle change for all of us, not a short-term diet which I would gain all the weight back soon after. .
.
If my girls asked questions, I answered them! This was a learning experience for them too. 
They would ask why I used a different syrup than we used to, and I would explain that by using a sugar-free syrup I could have a few Oreos too! .
.
I wanted to make meals that we all ate together. I didn’t want my girls to be raised thinking they had to “be on diet”, but I want them to feel empowered to choose food to make them feel good and give them energy. .
.
Food is not good or bad. And I hope my girls grow up thinking that if they want cookies then they should make some cookies! 
Life and food are meant to be enjoyed. Focusing on a more balanced and healthier lifestyle for my family was a choice I will never regret. .
What’s a small change you’ve made in your family to have a healthier lifestyle? .

(Mostly) Deep S Supper: the only thing throwing me off a deep S would be the tomato paste on top of the Burger Bombs (THT pg 212)....but I'm fine with it as it's close. I also had a salad with more honey mustard dressing. Dessert was @brianamthomas deep S Milk Chocolate Pudding.
-
-
Afternoon snack was skinny chocolate and coffee.
-

I mentioned that I wanted to do a one week fuel cycle this month. Well, this morning I realized I could make a deep S Breakfast, and then at lunch I thought maybe I'd just keep going....so by super, I decided that I've officially started a fuel cycle. 😄 Since overthinking is my greatest weakness, it's a great way to start: just doing it. 
Day one: complete. 😏

💗Sometimes you just have to give yourself a BREAK. A huge dose of self compassion, grace, or whatever you wanna call it. .
.
💜You don’t ALWAYS have to be in hustle mode. Scaling back doesn’t mean you’re making an excuse; it means you’re TAKING CARE OF YOURSELF.
.
💜When it feels like you’re juggling 10 balls at once, something will eventually give. It’s exactly where I’ve been this week. .
💜Others will tell you “just push through it!” But I’m telling you this: do what you need to do to get your mojo back, to refill your tank. .
.
💙Say no to the things that leave you feeling drained.
.
❤️Set boundaries with your phone and social media.
.
💙Say no to the people who such the life outta you. .
❤️Start saying YES to the things and people  that FILL you back up. Pay attention to what fills you with joy, peace, and happiness. .
.
💖Be the boss of the life you want. Create the life you desire. YOU get to choose. Don’t let anyone do it for you. Listen and lean in to your intuition. What is it you’re REALLY craving??.
.
💓This is all part of my program that starts next week. Join me for my new Fit Mind, Fit Body, Healthy Life program that starts Monday, August 20. 💗 Say yes to YOU this time. Message me for details. .

Alright, time to get a little open with you again (this keeps happening more and more as I try trying to be more vulnerable these days......so scary 😳🤢) ⠀
.⠀
Can you remember your teens and early 20’s? ⠀
If you can, you may be able to relate to what I’m about to share.⠀
.⠀
So when I was around that age, I would think to myself again and again, “I’m going to go on a diet this winter/spring/summer/fall and FINALLY lose 10 lb”. ⠀
It was like those thoughts were on a loop in my brain all year long!⠀
.⠀
Foods were “good” or bad”, and I can tell you now, the bad foods were definitely a no-no!⠀
.⠀
Dieting was impossible! I was NEVER able to stick with things when I restricted completely, and I always binged on the “bad” foods, feeling super guilty, ashamed and weak afterward. I felt like a failure.⠀
.⠀
Sounding familiar yet?⠀
.⠀
So when I first discovered moderation when it came to food, I was pretty blown away that there was actually a way to eat for better health that didn’t restrict ANY foods, and that allowed you to eat the “bad” foods, with 0 guilt or shame.⠀
.⠀
Holy crap was that a turning point in my life!⠀
.⠀
Learning to eat moderately didn’t just happen overnight, and it certainly wasn’t easy peasy. ⠀
But with consistent practice, I was able to change the way I viewed food. ⠀
.⠀
Nowadays nothing is off limits! ⠀
.⠀
If I happen to have chocolate or cake (or both😝 ), I don’t feel the guilt and shame I used to feel. ⠀
And I don’t feel the need to stuff my face full of chips or sweets, because I know I can have them whenever and wherever I want. ⠀
.⠀
I think about how food makes me feel, and I use food to nourish myself, not punish anymore. ⠀
I feel energized, empowered and excited.⠀
.⠀
Are my eating habits perfect these days?⠀
.⠀
Nope! ⠀
.⠀
But they sure as heck don't need to be. Just like the rest of life, I don't need to be perfect. I try MY best every day and in every situation that I am in, and that's just the way it needs to be. ⠀
.⠀
If this sounds like you, or you have a similar story, comment below or send me a message and say HI!🙃⠀
I'd love to connect with you!⠀

Good evening friends 🌙
.
Has anyone else noticed the sun going down sooner already? It’s still amazing to me how the seasons change and how beautiful they all are 🙌🏼
.
In honor of summer coming to an end I am eating and drinking up all the fresh fruits and veggies summer has provided. ☝🏼I firmly believe that if we honor and cherish the foods earth provides us they will give us even more nutrients than we could ever imagine. It also allows us to have a healthy relationship with the foods we put into our body and motivates us to continue giving our bodies real food🙏🏼
.
I am so so thankful for all the real whole and nutrient dense foods I get to eat every single day. They provide my body with everything it needs to stay healthy, strong, and balanced 🧘🏻‍♀️🌱

After our post from yesterday “What A Successful Transformation Really Looks Like” we received a couple questions asking if a weight-loss phase could really take that long for some women if they’ve had a history of yo-yo dieting and if was possible to lose weight faster. Our answer was… yes, but it depends (of course).
So, we'll clarify with a better answer:
•
It depends on the individual and a lot of other variables. Hormones – stress, sleep, dieting history, etc. Lifestyle – how strict/ complaint does their lifestyle allow them to be, is the game-plan reasonable for their environment, social life, etc. It goes on.
•
To keep it simple think of it as this: to lose fat you need to be in a calorie deficit most of the time - if your resting metabolism is slow, then you don’t burn many calories at rest [calories burnt at rest is the majority of your daily burn (~70%)] - therefore, to be in a calorie deficit you’ll likely need to eat a low amount of calories with high nutrient density consistently for a long period of time
•
And therefore, this is why most people fail over time – it’s NOT easy to do long-term.
•
Taking a cyclical approach to your nutrition is our solution to address the above – there’s going to be times where you need to eat more – from our experience it’s the only way for people with hormonal imbalances to be able to reach and sustain their goal.

The photos show a couple summaries of more “aggressive” cuts with women with high functioning thyroids (and a lot of other variables in place).

The first clients average weight-loss was 1.8 lbs. a week – over 60 lbs. lost in 34 weeks.

The 2nd client lost over 50 lbs. in 49 weeks. @kivaswift hit PR's in the gym along the way including completing a heavy triple of 135 lbs on her bench press after her reverse diet.

Both highly complaint and driven but more importantly were in the position to lose weight faster.
After our post from yesterday “What A Successful Transformation Really Looks Like” we received a couple questions asking if a weight-loss phase could really take that long for some women if they’ve had a history of yo-yo dieting and if was possible to lose weight faster. Our answer was… yes, but it depends (of course). So, we'll clarify with a better answer: • It depends on the individual and a lot of other variables. Hormones – stress, sleep, dieting history, etc. Lifestyle – how strict/ complaint does their lifestyle allow them to be, is the game-plan reasonable for their environment, social life, etc. It goes on. • To keep it simple think of it as this: to lose fat you need to be in a calorie deficit most of the time - if your resting metabolism is slow, then you don’t burn many calories at rest [calories burnt at rest is the majority of your daily burn (~70%)] - therefore, to be in a calorie deficit you’ll likely need to eat a low amount of calories with high nutrient density consistently for a long period of time • And therefore, this is why most people fail over time – it’s NOT easy to do long-term. • Taking a cyclical approach to your nutrition is our solution to address the above – there’s going to be times where you need to eat more – from our experience it’s the only way for people with hormonal imbalances to be able to reach and sustain their goal.

#breakfastfordinner #whole30pizza #swypo - Meet the breakfast pizza for dinner ;) @julianbakery paleo pizza crust (ingredients: Almond Flour, Arrowroot Flour, Pumpkin Powder, Dried Egg Whites, Xanthan Gum) with a homemade base sauce of olive oil + cilantro + chili topped with Procuitto, eggs, avocado (healthy fat for complete satiety) and some sliced mango (by @traderjoes because there is only so much work I will put for a weekday dinner). And no, pizza is not Whole30 even if made with compliant ingredients because guess what? Your brain doesn’t know the difference and sees pizza full stop. But this is my #foodfreedom so I choose to have it ;)

ENGAGE THE HEALING POWER OF SOUP. I’m sick. Like my throat is on fire and my chest hurts. So tonight I made avgolemono soup. It’s one of my favorite things to get at Greek restaurants, but it’s pretty easy to make. Chicken, lemon, eggs, broth, that’s about it. I used rice instead of orzo. I think it’s time to have some tea and go to bed and hopefully feel better in the morning. ✌🏼 #sickypoo #chickensoup #avgolemono #avgolemonosoup #greekcooking #chickenandlemon #healingpowerofsoup #itsallgreektome #fiestaware

🚨EATING CARBS WILL MAKE YOU FAT💥.... if you’ve ever been interested in loosing weight, body fat, or improving your body composition, then you have most likely heard the above misconception ... that’s right, you can relax because it’s not true! .
✋Eating carbs will not make you gain body fat! This is a myth that maybe you’ve heard from your Mom because maybe she cut out bread and lost a ton of weight, or that girl Beth from the office who doesn’t eat anything white like potatoes, sugars, flours and she feels amazing!!
.
☝️Here’s why they think CARBS make them fat, it is because when they completely cut out a certain food or nutrient, they lost weight!!! But here’s the kicker, of course they lost weight 👉 because by cutting out whatever they deemed “naughty” or “unhealthy” (in this case CARBS) they ate less calories and created a calorie deficit. .
✅ The one and only thing you need to achieve fat loss/weight loss is a CALORIE DEFICIT. That’s it!!!!!! And you can achieve one without cutting out carbs 🎉 .
🙅‍♀️YOU DO NOT HAVE TO CUT OUT THE FOODS YOU LOVE TO ACHIEVE WEIGHT LOSS 🛑 .
✅ One of my favourite breakfasts is Oatmeal!! All the carbs, all the fuel to get me through my busy mornings and keep me feeling full! Plus you can add so many delicious things to them!! Who wants my fave protein oatmeal recipe??? Maybe I’ll make a post on it!! .

The “memories” that pop up on Facebook every day, of statuses in years past, are a daily reminder for me of just how sucked into diet culture I used to be. A few days ago, my status from that day in 2014 read, “This Blizzard was so worth starving all day for!” 🤦🏻‍♀️ And I wasn’t kidding. I was tracking calories at the time, so if I wanted a “treat,” I’d literally starve all day to fit it into my allotted calories. I thought this was “health.” I thought this was willpower. I was actually proud of my ability to go without food. This is diet culture.
.
Today I picked my daughter up from day camp and she asked if we could go for ice cream. I didn’t check if I could fit it in my calorie allotment or macros, I didn’t stress at the thought of consuming dairy and sugar, and it didn’t cross my mind whether I had “earned” a treat by working out. I just thought a Blizzard on a hot day sounded great, so I said sure! 🍦
.
Food freedom is no longer agonizing over my food choices. It’s no longer tallying my “good” and “bad” food at the end of the day. It’s no longer working out to burn off what I ate. It’s no longer starving all day in order to eat something I enjoy. Food freedom allows me to enjoy life, and enjoy food, guilt-free 🙌🏽🍦

Cajun chicken thighs, collard greens and roasted potatoes. 👌🏻 A great way to end this hectic Tuesday. I’m ready to not have after school meetings/appointments so often. Perks of being a newish teacher and new to the district I guess. Done with Whole 30 day 3 and definitely wanting a glass of 🍷. Hoping herbal tea helps. 🙄 On our fifth round and always miss having a glass of red. Have a good night! (if you’re interested, the greens recipe is in my highlights)

I know that a reset of some sorts is in the near future. I don’t know when or for how long, but what I’m doing right now clearly isn’t working for me at the moment. Giving myself some time to think about what’s best for my mental and physical health. Until then, I’m taking it one meal at a time. Dinner: ribeye steak, cast iron brussels with @balancedbites smoky blend & and a homemade spicy lime Whole30compliant mayo, and @traderjoes sauerkraut. 🥩

Happy early Birthday to me!! 🎁 Celebrating with my new Vitamix blender I received in the mail! Perfect timing right before my birthday (which is tomorrow 🎉). Couldn’t have timed it’s arrival any better 😉. It’s been a loooong time coming.. like, years in the making 💫.
.
I’ve used lots of other tools and appliances to substitute for this beautiful appliance 😍. Which probably all adds up to the cost of this machine 😆. Which got me thinking about how it’s funny the things we “allow” ourselves to have, and the things we hold off on because “it’s too expensive”, or “I can’t have that yet”. .
Well.. why not?? Says who?? Where do those thoughts even come from?? What those thoughts really boil down to is.. “I’m not worthy of my desires”.
.
Well.. Why wouldn’t you believe you are worthy of your desires?? Which.. this may sound silly having this discussion over a blender 🤔. But it’s a metaphor for all things in life. .
The desires on your heart were put there for a reason ♥️. Trust them. Believe in them. Even if it’s just a fancy blender 😉. Because now who knows what fun creations will come of this! And ultimately, it’s an expression of who I really am. And this planet benefits from those who fully express themselves, trust their desires and creativity, and have a zest for life ✨.
.
So let your desires flow 💫.. and go buy yourself a blender! 🤣. No not really.. unless, of course, it lights you up ✨😉. Because what this planet needs is more lit up people 🌎✨💥

🥑 Did you know AVOCADOS are a FAT? 🥑
.
That’s right, avocados are considered a fatty food. But they’re a HEALTHY FAT‼️Just like there are good & bad carbs, there are good & bad fats 😇😈 & in fact you NEED to consume good fats (more below on this) 🧐
.
Bad fats raise your levels of bad cholesterol 📈 whereas good fats are required for normal (& necessary) body functions such as muscle movement 💪🏻 The key is to reduce your consumption of bad fats 🚫 & substitute them with good fats ✅ here is a quick breakdown of bad vs good fats:
.
🚫 Bad fats: trans & saturated fats - full-fat dairy, processed meats, packaged desserts/pastries🥛🍕🌭🍰
✅ Good fats: polyunsaturated & monounsaturated fats - avocados, PB, nuts/seeds, fish, olive & plant oils 🥑🥜🌰🐟🌱
.
You NEED some fat to function normally! Healthy fats contain the building blocks to our optimal health, decreasing our risk of heart disease ❤️ controlling blood sugar levels 🍭 & helping your body absorb vitamins 💊 This is why I LOVE avocados - avocado toast, avocado pasta, even just whole plan avocado with a bit of salt! 🥑🥑🥑🥑
.
Okay, TRUTH TIME❗️Comment below the last fatty food you ate & whether it was a good or bad fat. I’ll go first: I ate a bunch of Brie cheese 🧀🧀 which is full of saturated fats aka bad fats 😅 BUUUT it also has some protein sooo 🤷🏻‍♀️😂 Tag a friend to challenge them to spill the beans on the last fatty food they ate 😬

How do you feel about breakfast?👇 Personally, I love breakfast! If you know me then you know it's my favorite meal of the day. Yep I'm the kind a girl who goes to bed dreaming of what she'll be having in the morning☀️. .
.
But I get that not everyone shares my excitement.  In fact, for many the idea of eating  breakfast is not very relaxing and doesnt feel very doable. Especially when you're hustling to get everyone ready and out the door 🤯- I get it! #momlife .
.
I believe breakfast sets the tone for your day. And I don't mean in an "I'm going to eat perfectly today" kinda way. Not at all!! There is no perfect! I mean its the time of day to get energized and set intentions so that you can have the mental space to cultivate awareness and tune in to what your body is truly telling you throughout the day. .
.
Whether you love breakfast or find it a struggle - I'm dedicating an entire WEEK to breakfast starting this coming Sunday. This means a NEW delicious breakfast recipe every.  Single. Day! All super easy to make. Because that's how I roll🙌. Easy and DOABLE! .
.
PLUS by joining #RGNBreakfastWeek you get a daily email about breakfast and how it relates to intuitive eating (see previous post for topic details). .

“All you need is love...and a cup of coffee.”
•
Summer’s end is quickly approaching and my kids are heading back to school soon...so my oldest daughter and I went out to our local coffee shop for an end of the summer date. A friend of mine had told me about this peanut butter latte months ago and I finally got around to giving it a try. It was WAY better than I had imagined! The nutty flavor of the peanut butter was perfect with the espresso and the touch of honey made it a perfect afternoon treat, I also went all in and opted for the real deal milk from a local creamery, the end result was absolutely decadent and totally #worthit. But now I’m inspired to create my own nut butter creamer to use for my weekend coffees that uses the ingredients I normally use. I’ll let you know how it goes!
