Spent the afternoon enjoying a three course feast at @spicerstamarindretreat
in Maleny. I definitely can't do the menu justice trying to describe the flavours, so you'll just have to try it one day for yourself 😉
The modern Asian menu is designed to be shared, so for the first course we tried the Cambodian style barramundi salad with green mango and bean sprouts as well as the beef tataki with daikon and miso mustard 👌
Tried something new for dinner✨ Potato crusted quiche stuffed with eggs, peppers, garlic, ricotta, spinach, zucchini and cheese! It was delicious 🤤 my husband is so creative 😍

I got to the markets late yesterday as I had to pick up some medication for Randall. When I got there they’d run out of kale but the girls who run the stall suggested I try this vegetable instead. It’s called Gai LAN and my research has told me it’s also called CHINESE KALE !!!! How cool is that 😀 🥬 .
It’s very high in Vitamin K and also contains good amounts of folate and vitamin A and C. Also contains reasonable levels of calcium, potassium and manganese.
Wahoo what a find.
Thanks Randall 💚
The theme in my life over the last couple years has been CHANGE. God is not done with me... I have a lot more changing to do to become the person God wants me to be. For many years I fought change. I am learning to embrace the obstacles that are set before me. It is through the obstacles that breakthrough occurs and growth happens. #breakthrough #theobstacleistheway #godchangeme #healthcoaching #freedom #optimalhealth

What did you do to fill yourself up today?
My day consisted of:
⋗ Taking Brady to play fetch at the park 🎾
⋗ Hiking Stonewall Peak in Julian, CA 🏞
⋗ A beer tasting at @nickelbeerco
⋗ Stuffing my face with cider donuts and apple pie at @julianpiecompany
⋗ Not a single thing related to productivity or responsibilities 🤸🏽♀️
Some parts of my day were healthy and some parts were not. And guess what? The things that were “unhealthy” or that fact that I accomplished so little of my to-do list… I have 𝐳𝐞𝐫𝐨 𝐫𝐞𝐦𝐨𝐫𝐬𝐞 𝐨𝐫 𝐠𝐮𝐢𝐥𝐭 over.
Just a little reminder that 𝐥𝐢𝐟𝐞 𝐢𝐬 𝐦𝐞𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐥𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐠. It’s about striking a balance that allows you to feel your best, but also gives you the space to be happy and experience life.
Happy weekend, friends! ✨

In Feng Shui, pets help keep good chi energy flowing with their movement. ⠀⠀
That’s why your home remains “active” even when you’re out of the house. The chi is being circulated by your pets.
I know that coming home to the pugs is a very different feeling compared to opening the door to an empty house. I feel excited to rush in and catch up on cuddles and kisses.
Interestingly, Feng Shui suggests not having more pets than family members so as not to outnumber the humans in the household. ⠀⠀
Are you a pet person or do you prefer to move your own chi?

There has been lots of decorating over here in the Pattock household this weekend! 🎄😍 As you guys know, we have been traveling so we haven’t had time to really get into the holiday spirit... but watch out here we come! We are making up for lost time! 😂 🎅🏼
Do you have your holiday shopping done or are you more of a last-minuter? Or are you skipping gifts this year? 🎁
On the 10th day of Christmas, Health Coaching gave to me... the bliss of ignorance for my kids.
My twins are 8 years old. Today, we drove past Florida Hospital, the hospital I worked at for 8 years.
I mentioned, "mommy used to work here." One of the twins responded in sheer amazement.... "You used to work at a hospital???!" 🤪😳👍 Yup! For 8 years!!! My kids know I work. They see me work every day. But that's just the thing... They SEE me work everyday because I am with them. They see what I do because I don't have to leave them to go to work.
I have travelled to trainings , and on occasion, I leave the house for a meeting.
But today, I am reminded how grateful I am my kids don't know what it's like to have mommy leave for work and be gone for 12 hours straight. I am grateful I don't know what it's like to leave the house while they are sleeping and return after they are in bed. I am grateful they don't remember mommy walking in from the garage in her undies because she stripped her germ infested work clothes in the garage to protect them from whatever bugs she was exposed to at work.

Haven’t posted in awhile, but was feeling like I had to document this one lol. Co workers let me leave with a whole ass pizza last night(cheese, I don’t eat pork) saved it for today, crushed the entire thing before hitting back and was honestly surprised at how well I managed to use it. Been bulking but trying to keep as lean as possible, gonna take some advice from @a_physique_
and take some time off competition and focus on growing

Check out Charles Story Another life changed for the better!! I had always used supplements all my life, but always went for quantity over quality buying whatever was usually on sale!. Over a few months I kept seeing results of others from the online & live info/trainings & finally decided to but my ego aside & give Herbalife ago seeing I had tried so many others already!. To my surprise without changing my exercise routine & just implementing the program I lost Kg's & Cm faster than I had ever before initially losing (6Kg' & 8 Cm)
But what I loved the most about the products was my consistent energy levels throughout the day not needing & relying on coffee & sugar filled energy drinks to keep me going to the end of the day like I to!. Fast forward to today and as you can see I have totally reshaped my body & at my peak had lost 20Kgs, the crazy thing was I wasn't even trying to lose the last 5kgs!. Now I've decided to bulk & put on more lean muscle. Results may vary #healthylifestyle #healthcoaching #online #newyearnewyou #80percentnutrition20percentfitness100percentmindset #livehealthybehappy
Hiked my feelings today //
Grateful to live so close to all this beautiful nature and even more grateful when I take advantage of it with a good friend and my love. We found a path that wasn’t the usual way back from this hike and went for it. It was challenging (I only fell once but Matt has a battle scar - swipe! 🙊😆) but so worth it! Here’s to taking the road less traveled + paving your own path #lifeadvice #weregoingonanadventure @kirbyls @matt_vittie
We can't stress enough (which seems kind of silly to say in a post about meditation!) how there is no right or wrong way to meditate.
Whether you sit on a meditation pillow with your legs crossed and chant "Om" or experience a meditative state while you drive, both are right!
And today we want to share a simple technique for meditating while you're on the go and need a little grounding.
We call this "Micro Meditating"-- it's a technique where you allow yourself a quick minute or two to go into a meditative state. In this brief moment, you can recenter and connect with your true self.
We love this technique because it's simple, quick, and extremely powerful.
Here's how to do it:
- Closing your eyes.
- Notice your breath.
- Envision a place that brings you peace.
- Simply spend some time here and focus on your breathing.
Coming back to the present, you should feel refreshed and grounded. This is a great tool to have in your back pocket (and to share with your clients) to use wherever, whenever!
For tips on how to use this technique, check out our latest blog post (link in bio)!
Excellent post reminding us of the deeper aspects to nutrition often overlooked in conventional dietetics; that optimum nutrition comes through ABSORPTION of the most nutrients from our food, not just through eating solitary foods or taking solitary nutrients in supplement form. Whole Foods nutrition is an art as much as a science which gets consistently refined as the data grows. ...
Since familiarizing myself with this research, I’ve been known to throw mustard seed on all my sulforaphane-rich veggies... and loving the extra spice it offers! And as a health science nerd 🤓, it’s my jam to know I’m optimizing my nutritional status with little tweaks like this. 👌#wildchildsheeats
Add mustard seed powder to your cooked broccoli! A small trial finds that when people eat cooked broccoli with 1 gram of powdered mustard seed the bioavailability of sulforaphane increased more than 4-fold compared to eating cooked broccoli alone. Other studies have shown similar data, but this is the first one that I am aware of that showed it in vivo!
This is very applicable because cooking broccoli inactivates the enzyme (called myrosinase) that converts glucoraphanin into sulforaphane. The mustard seed powder provides a viable source of the enzyme myrosinase that can be sprinkled on top of the broccoli after it is cooked. I usually try to sprinkle mustard seed on my cooked broccoli and other cooked cruciferous vegetables like sauteed kale.
If you want to learn more about the benefits of sulforaphane in humans including reductions in inflammatory biomarkers and DNA damage, increased plasma and brain glutathione levels, reductions in cancer biomarkers, and more check out my comprehensive sulforaphane video and/or the foundmyfitness podcast episode with Dr. Jed Fahey on the episode page at foundmyfitness.com.

I’m a forward thinker, so why would I hang around people talking about what they woulda, coulda & should’ve done. Yes I remember what happened back then, that was cool. But I’m focused on everything we’re about to create!
Is there a story you need to tell? Is there something you’re keeping inside? Let it out. Let it go. Learn to speak your truth. It’s something I’ve always struggled with and I know I’m not alone. Evolving is necessary to move forward in life. I’ve spent a lot of time in the last few years evolving, growing, and getting to know myself in the process. I didn’t know I was lost and I still am in many ways. But I’ve learned that I’ve ignored my soul for so long. Your soul is your North Star, so when you ignore it you DO get lost. I’ve drowned out my own voice using external distractions. It’s time I take my voice back and that’s exactly what I’m learning how to do. And if there’s anything else I’ve learned and believe without a doubt? It’s that we ALL have a story, we all need to speak our truth, and we all need to find that voice and have the courage to share ourselves with the world. Your uniqueness is what the world needs.

I almost quit and then I realized who’s watching.
My kids are my biggest motivator.
They are not only my biggest motivator they are also my biggest accountability partners.
They often ask have you met your goal yet? Are you happy with what you’re doing? Do you need a date night? You look tired Mom, you need a massage? Mom, you have not been in the gym... 🤣
These guys make me emotional. They are my best business consultants, they’re in my circle of 5 because they are honest and blunt. They know what they want and what truly matters, and that’s time with family, doing what you said you were gonna do, keeping your promises, trying anyways no matter how scary, taking risks... They bring me back to planet earth often, they’re the toughest accountability partners and it’s great to be surrounded by these guys!
I love them so much!
