With the beautiful weather ☀️ this weekend it was the perfect time to try the new peanut butter brownie smash @questnutrition
As you can see they have smashed together a peanut butter bar and a brownie bar into one delicious 😋 creation!
This flavor is definitely my new factories! 10/10 👍🏼

Beautiful evening in Spandau. Walking a couple of U-Bahn stops to stretch the legs.
Same size suit....Two different body types.
and I both have an inner mean girl- she’s the one that says - your not good enough🤔, you’re still over weight👹; who do you think you are, don’t write that post no one wants going to read it🙄. Can anyone relate to this? 😆
Here’s the thing about our inner mean girl...she doesn’t silence overnight or when you lose the weight. Choosing to silence her and chose self love everyday takes work and I’m still working to master my mean girl. But everyday I’m learning new ways to be #perfectlyimperfect
Remember we don’t deserve Self love and the freedom to rock our bodies when we lose 10,20, or 30 lbs, we deserve it NOW! #bodylove

I successfully completed my first professional workshop. This was the first type of workshop on food that’s been done at the Bikram yoga studio I attend @hotyogaclaremont.
People want to know how to take care of their body inside and out, but most people are lost and don’t know how to start. Not only that, people need to hear the information that will never been shown on the news or mainstream TV. I felt like my voice on social media wasn’t enough, so I want to bring my voice to the people. I want to empower and inspire everyone to become their own health advocate. I’m thankful for the people that continuously support me, you know who you are, and especially my fiancé @gwbustos.
Thank you @ninjanickysveganwellness
for sharing your health journey with us! God’s plans, we can change our world 🙏🏼I’m so excited to embark on this new path! The goal is for a workshop once a month, check my website to get updates (Turningpainn2purpose.com) P.C: @thebullpen
Have a fantastic Monday!✨
🌺And remember: “Let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another" (Romans 14:19).🙏🏾
Rushed to the gym and had a quick ab and cardio session so I could get back to watch the football. Made it juuust in time!
Now enjoying a gin and tonic and hoping that England pull it out of the bag 😬
Summer Vibes !!! Yes more fruits 🤗. I can’t resist . #🍓 and we definitely need more food emoticons 😁🤗.
What are your favorite summer fruits ?
… on a Monday! Postponed due to Father’s day but the science day is now here! Time for some #BrainGains
💪🏻 This week we’re talking about whether or not you are doomed to lose all of your muscle mass and strength as you get old. Aging is commonly associated with a loss of muscle mass and strength, resulting in falls, functional decline, and the subjective feeling of weakness. But is the physiology of the muscle aging process itself that causes of this? And can this loss of strength be influenced and combatted with lifestyle changes?
👩🏼🔬THE STUDY: This study evaluated whether high levels of chronic exercise prevents the loss of lean muscle mass and strength experienced in sedentary aging adults
🔅A cross-section of 40 high-level recreational athletes (age 40-81) who trained 4-5 times per week were tested for health/activity, body composition, quadriceps peak torque, and MRI of bilateral quadriceps. The MRIs looked at mid-thigh muscle area, quadriceps area, subcutaneous fat, and intramuscular fat
🔬THE RESULTS: The only “expected” change that occurred with age was an increase in total body fat percentage
🔅The following showed no decline with age: mid thigh muscle area, quadriceps area, quadriceps peak torque, and specific strength
👉🏻WHAT THIS MEANS: This study contradicts the common observation that muscle mass and strength decline as a function of aging alone. Instead, these declines may signal the effect of chronic disuse rather than muscle aging. Evaluation of masters athletes removes disuse as a confounding variable in the study of lower-extremity function and loss of lean muscle mass
🔅TLDR: Don’t let life “get in the way” of exercise as you get older. Making time to exercises regularly will help insure that your quality of life stays higher as you get older
❗️LIMITATIONS: For the study design, this seems to be a small sample size. It would be useful to look at studies where participants were evaluated over time
What are you waiting for? You say you want to make changes but it's always followed by "tomorrow". You doubt yourself like you're not incredibly strong. •
You ARE strong and you ARE capable. Your health isn't going to wait around for whenever you're ready. It's either improving or declining and that's totally up to you. •
I have a group of women waiting to walk with you and support you. Whatever your goals. The woman who are willing to start their journeys will be getting a little gift from me that may help you along your journey. You're NOT alone. 😘
I’ve been going through lots of health issues for years and years. It’s what brought me to Young Living which has changed the course of our family’s life. I’ve had so much help and support and encouragement but I’m definitely still walking through health ups and downs, praying for full healing and seeking as many natural ways to support my body as possible. I’ve learned so much and truly I’m grateful for this journey I’m on.
Currently I’m changing my whole diet ((again)) and learning different ways to nourish my body. Some of the things that I’m using daily are lemon in my water for cleansing, digize in a capsule for all the tummy things and sipping this tea. Look up the benefits of Pau d’ Arco tea! So incredible!
Today I had the pleasure of meeting and working with @drterrywahls
for a mutual client/patient, and WOW is she a true and incredible healer and innovator. She said to me that when she started on her path, her peers thought she was crazy, and now she is thought of as brilliant by the same people. She fought against the current at the time to pursue healing from an environmental, nutrition, exercise and spiritual perspective and not only has she healed herself, but she has healed thousands. She practices a form of medicine that is so encompassing- including spiritual, movement, nutrition- and she is powerful. Dr Whals, you seriously inspire me 🙏🏻✨ thank you for being such an incredible pioneer and believer in whole-life health, it matters.
Iowa City is pretty cool, but the highlight of my trip was definitely Dr Whals (and the gigantic salad I just had from the @breadgardenmarket

¶ HOW TO START
I want to share a few steps I did to prepare myself for the challenge.
First of all, *motivation*: it is absolutely important to have a specific reason why you want to start a challenge like this. Find your personal motivation and keep it in mind any time you are tempted to quit.
Secondly, *knowledge*: if you're not seeing a doctor (or nutritionist, as in this case) you want to learn as much as possible. Start from the basics, understand how the body works and what factors are or may be involved in whatever health issue you have. In my case, I looked for the causes of acne and I tried to make a list of the possible ones for me. Then I did a little research on the web, reading others' experiences AND scientific papers. Now I have an idea of what I could tried, other than using drugs or skincare products.
This is my personal choice, now explained. Wish me luck and hopefully this diet would give me some sort of result!
