FINALLY getting back into the swing of my early mornings- and you guys...it makes a WORLD of difference for me. I have more energy all day long, I’m more productive, time with God never gets skipped, and I’m overall peaceful, joyful, and ambitious🙏🏼
So I have to ask (drop an emoji):
🔥 On day 3 of Transform 20
😴 Waiting until April to start
🥺 Have FOMO and want more info
Day 16 Who’s feeling that Tigers Blood?
Leave a comment below with your NSV, I would love to hear!
Day 9 Update!
I was stuck in a food rut and wanted to give up. Usually I don’t ask for help, but I finally broke down to my group and admitted I was in a rut and didn’t know if I could continue. They were so amazing and offered up so much support and I was inspired to make some food that were #whole30
approved (that I didn’t think about before)! So glad to say that I’m on Day 10 now and didn’t give up! ❤️
last night was ✨ and just like that we’re over halfway done with #januarywhole30
! I’m still not sleeping well 🙄 but other than that I feel great. lots of NSVs here- the jeans I wore last night were basically falling off of me! my skin is super clear and I have more energy throughout the day 🤗 I’m still trying to figure out a workout schedule that works for me, though, and I’m struggling with that a little bit. any suggestions for becoming a super early morning person?? hope y’all have a great hump day! 🌻💃🏻
Had a successful meal prep this past Monday.. First dinner was fish with peppers, cauliflower rice and a side salad with cilantro-lime dressing. *made enough for 2 meals*
Then prepped for my trips..
Meal 1 - Hard boiled eggs with peppers and *made from scratch* Whole30 ranch dip.
Meal 2 - Salmon cakes with a cucumber & tomato salad.
Meal 3 - Kountry Boys Sausage with steam in the bag broccoli.
Then made a batch of French onion soup, extra salmon cakes and sausage for the freezer!
This Whole30 round has had its ups & downs. But for this last half I’m going to focus on the ups! I’ve finally mastered making my own mayo! *thanks to an immersion blender* Practice makes perfect! The more I practice the easier meal prepping becomes! *

🔹WHITE CHICKEN CHILI🔹
Original Recipe: The Real Food Dieticians @therealfoodrds
Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 4 Hrs 15 min (if cooking chicken in pressure cooker prior)* Total Time: 4 Hrs 30min
Servings: 5 *I used my 6qt Instant Pot to cook a whole chicken for shredding prior. If you don't want to do this, use the original recipe found here
https://therealfoodrds.com/slow-cooker-white-chicken-chili/ **Or buy pre-shredded chicken and skip instant pot & original recipe chicken step(s)
INGREDIENTS • 1 Whole Chicken (approx 5 pds prior to cooking) - shredded • 1 medium onion, diced • 1 medium bell pepper (any color), diced • 1 jalapeno (seeds/membrane removed), finely diced • 6 cloves fresh garlic (minced) or 6 tsp minced garlic from jar • 2.5 tsp ground cumin • 1 tsp dried oregano • 2 tsp chili powder • 1 tsp sea salt • 1/4 tsp black pepper • 3 cups organic chicken broth • 1 can FULL FAT coconut milk • Juice from 1/2 lime (or more to liking) • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped • Fresh cilantro, avocado and lime wedges for garnish (optional)
1. Cook Whole Chicken in Instant Pot. Place trivet into Instant Pot and add 1 cup water. Set chicken on top of the trivet. Place the lid on your pressure cooker, set valve to seal and set cooking time according to how large your chicken is (6 minutes per pd). Let the steam naturally release for 20 min for tender, fall off the bone meat!
2. Let chicken cool, then shred and place into a bowl. Set aside.
3. Combine spices (cumin through black pepper) into mixing bowl. Set aside.
4. Add onion, peppers, garlic, and spices to the bottom of a slow cooker & stir.
5. Arrange chicken on top of vegetables in a single layer.
6. Add broth and place lid on slow cooker.
7. Set heat to HIGH and cook 3 hours or until vegetables are tender.
8. Add coconut milk, stir and replace lid. Continue heating an additional 15 minutes or until soup is heated through
9. Top with garnish after serving (optional)
Why exercise lowers blood sugar.
This is only one strategy. I still have to discuss fasting and keto.
Since 30m Americans already have diabetes and 84m more are pre diabetic... I'll probably talk about it a little more. Please share with a friend who needs it. Just apologize in advance because I'm a little crazy.
Tomorrow I'm going to have these cute little memo boards for sale over @veryjane.
I sold out of them the first day during my last sale so if you want one you better act quick! (Search 'memo board' on jane.com after 12am) 😉 They're perfect for grocery lists and yes my list is pretty accurate for shopping essentials - milk, bread, steak. I have no idea why I picked steak as the third item. They have nothing in common. 😂

It was an average day until she told me she paid off all her Christmas debt 🤩
She was stressed out about the balance on her credit card. You know how smothering that can be? I totally get it.
Us coaches get paid weekly. And it’s such a huge help for our families.
And in that moment when I was so thrilled for her, it also reminded me that those who put in the work, consistently, are making big things happen for themselves.
I freaking love ❤️ that!
I’m so proud of everything our team is accomplishing. I’m grateful to be a part of their road to success.
My Tuesday thought is... believe in yourself and do the work. Then celebrate 🎉 #thisisreallife #lifeisbettertogether #canadianmom
WHOLE30 DAY 15 MEALS: .
Breakfast: egg scramble with two different kinds of peppers and onions, banana with almond butter
Lunch: Zuppa Toscana soup from @realsimplegood
Dinner: chicken tenders from @thedefineddish
, roasted acorn squash and green beans (dump ranch to dip.
Both recipes were AMAZING! .
Whole30 Day 15:
Halfway done! At this point I'm in such a routine that the days are just passing like normal. I'm not really having any cravings anymore (or putting myself around things to tempt me) which makes it easier. I tried two new recipes today and they were a big hit. I did a weight training workout which really challenged me but it was fun. I've been having some muscle cramping and fatigue. I have been adding more salt to my food to help replenish my electrolytes and potassium from upping my workouts. Hopefully it helps.
Favorite meal of the week:
Spicy Chicken with Cauliflower Rice.
The recipe can be found at the link in my profile under the January2019W30 section of my Whole30/Paleo board.
This process isn’t about weight loss. It is about so much more. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨This is about how much more energy I have when I’m eating food that fuels me.
✨It’s about how when I eat a nutrient dense, grain free foods, my thyroid and autoimmune levels are within normal levels.
✨It’s about how strong I feel when I’m working out.
✨It’s about how clearly I think when my brain is not foggy with peanut butter cups. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨It’s about my digestion working as it should.
✨It’s about how deeply I sleep when I’m not winding down with wine.
✨It’s about how my relationship with food has changed for the better. Food is no longer “good/bad”. It’s about how it tastes and how it makes me feel.
✨Yes, the scale will change. But, a million other things will too making you forget that’s why you started this journey. Happy Day 15, keep rocking your Whole30!

Day 15 #accountabilitypost
Haaaaalf. Waaaaay. Theeere!
I took an awesome and well needed Pound Class AND go an amazing update from someone in my last Whole30 group who has lost 60lbs and is KILLING IT in his food freedom. I'm such a proud mama bird.
M1 - hot dog in ghee w a banana and almond butter.
M2 - shredded chicken, potatoes, spinach, more ghee.
M3 - shredded chicken again, spinach again, guac.
I shopped today and tomorrow will prep some tomorrow, I'm scraping the sides to make meals the past couple days since I burnt, dropped, and otherwise ruined half of my weekend prep.
Onward!! Tell me NSVs, I want to hear it all 👇
Whole 30 day 15: welcome to the half way point! Dinner tonight is tri-tip, roasted potatoes and green beans. I’m seriously so excited. I’ve been sick the last few days and food has not been appetizing at all, until now!
Day 15: Dinner 🥧

I’m not saying it will be easy.
It will be hard.
You will be tired.
It will push you.
It will make you get uncomfortable.
You’ll be sore.
You’ll have to dig deeper.
You won’t always “want to”.
It will take time.
You won’t see results over night.
You might feel defeated.
You will want to quit.
I’m not saying it will be easy... but it will be worth it.
BBQ meatloaf muffins from @therealfoodrds
topped with mashed sweet potatoes. These were a hit! I used #thenewprimal
bbq sauce and both the hubby and my mini-me loved them. I have a feeling I will be getting a lot of requests to make these again. Tomorrow I am half way through my #januarywhole30
