Groceries!

1. Broccolislaw - obsessed again

2. Nutella - part of my husband’s birthday gift (this would not last more than a few days in our house).

3. Sleepytime tea echinacea (tea before bed every night)

4. Tummy Mint tea (good for after meals)

5. Old Spice deodorant - when your wife shops, she picks :) But no really, my husband is super easy going and said pick what I liked and my nose said this one!

Welcome Frank’s Red Hot Sauce back into my household! I hadn’t bought in like 3 months (no particular reason) and I was craving it so I bought it!

Picked up cayenne, mustard (awesome with BBQ chicken), gum, and broccolislaw. 

I’ve been do hungry between yesterday and today. I want to eat the world!

It’s naturally in my Italian genes but I also train glutes plus fuel my body properly the majority of the time. 

I’m feeling so much better since Sunday. I think I just needed a break from training and from my current food plan. Yes, I’m wrapping up my last week of ‘prep’ for this upcoming shoot then I can start incorporating other foods and get back to my lifestyle for the remainder of the year. 

Again, I still dislike cardio very much but I always feeling accomplished after. 

I crushed my 60 minutes of HIIT this morning because:
1. I had enough sleep
2. I was focused
3. I had ON’s pre-platinum 

Happy October 1st!!! 3 months until 2015!!!! What?!!!! Let’s do this!

Fall is officially here! Happy October 1st! πŸ‘»πŸŽƒπŸƒπŸ‚
It’s my favourite time of year! All year long I look forward to Fall and everything that comes with it. I am so excited for apple picking, pumpkin patches, Thanksgiving dinner, pumpkin spice lattes, watching movies under blankets, sweaters, scarves, boots, baking squash and the list goes on and on! I think I especially like it because it’s the time of year that my competing season is usually over which allows me valuable time with my loved ones. I hope you make the most of your Autumn! #LiveLifeProject πŸ’“ #BeMindfulNotMindFULL #tbt

This summer was a gift. πŸ™ It gave me plenty of time to do some soul searching, determine what truly makes me happy, revisit my goals, and further develop my personal #LiveLifeProject . This project began last year after my #wbff pro show. 2013 exposed me to so many invaluable lessons that will never be forgotten. At first, I reluctantly accepted each lesson and eventually I allowed my lessons to create a plot twist for my future. Sometimes life takes you in different directions and sometimes you understand why and other times you wonder why. πŸ’­ When you wonder why πŸ’†, stop and remind yourself that the universe knows exactly what you need and which direction you should go in. And sometimes life’s little twists and turns are the most valuable and priceless adventures. Time will pass whether you allow it or not, so you might as well be present for the ride and contribute to your life experiences. Make a list of all your #LiveLifeProject goals and set dates for when you want to achieve them by. If you just write a list without setting a deadline then it will just be a list. Once you have your list and deadlines then you need to start arranging the steps necessary to make your #LiveLifeProject happen. Remember, this is your project and your life so that means you’re in charge of what goes on that list. Your list can include items such as pumpkin patch picking πŸŽƒ (that’s one of mine!), reading one book by November, or simply hosting a dinner party. This is your life and your project so you get to decide how you want to fill it. Tomorrow is October 1st πŸ‘» and it’s the perfect day to start fresh and figure out your #LiveLifeProject goals. #DoWhatMakesYouHappy #PeopleWillJudgeRegardless #KnowYourWorth πŸ‘‰Rebel Sport Bra by @publicmyth

The Reality: 
Being back to work has reminded me of how work it takes to balance workouts, work, food prep, sleep, and my social/relationship life. Each day I’m feeling more organized but I still have things to do in order to feel rested, not over worked and mentally at peace with juggling everything.

I got my training in this morning and went heavier on weights and didn’t die so that’s good news :) Also, I was in bed by 9:00pm last night which is exactly what I need to do everyday. That, will take much discipline! 

I’m feeling even better today and I know by Friday I’ll feel MUCH better than my Monday AM. 

I hope you’re all kicking booty this week!

Those who attempt to conquer hatred by hatred are like warriors who take weapons to overcome others who bear arms. This does not end hatred, but gives it room to grow. But, ancient wisdom has advocated a different timeless strategy to overcome hatred. This eternal wisdom is to meet hatred with non-hatred. The method of trying to conquer hatred through hatred never succeeds in overcoming hatred. But, the method of overcoming hatred through non-hatred is eternally effective. That is why that method is described as eternal wisdom.
Gautama Buddha (via kushandwizdom)
