I saw @piquetea on @melissasfoodfreedom ’s page & was so intrigued! Instead of having to steep your tea, it’s like “Crystal Light” where you just stir it in! Just good ol’ tea, conveniently packaged for on the go!
I ordered a few to try & opened up the passion fruit green tea tonight! It wasn’t as “passion fruity” as I was hoping, but it was a good green tea nonetheless. #Whole30Compliant too!
She has a code to save a little something! I think it’s “melissasfoodfreedom” But you might want to double check on her account!
R4, D20M2/3: There’s a young Airmen on island who smokes meat & sells it. I messaged him asking if he used soy, gluten, or sugar on it & he so kindly left the brown sugar out of the rub on our cut of pork belly!
It was amazing... except we ordered 2lbs & got 12oz of meat from him. Hoping it was an honest mistake because we would love to keep supporting this kid!
R4, D20M1: after shepherd’s pie all day yesterday I decided to switch it back up with a breakfast salad! Leafy greens & baby spinach with tomatoes & @justjessieb ’s marinated chicken! I used lime juice for my citrus & lime & jalapeño balsamic from @kouzinifoods in the marinade! Such a yummy combo!!
AND OF COURSE: @wholesisters dump ranch!!
#facetofacefriday is my favorite. It’s where I can see the most change. Keeps me motivated to keep going! Down 3lbs this week!! ❤️

Ooh Lovies! #selfcaresunday came early!! After the gym last nights I took some time to unplug and relax. Did a homemade hair mask, face mask, body mud mask, epsom salt bath and sugar scrub on my lips. I lit candles and played spa music and I locked the puppies out of the bathroom! I made a mess and it was worth it! I left the mess until this morning and slipped in to a peaceful sleep after. When you’re feeling depleted make sure to check in with yourself and fill your buckets back up the best way for you.
The daily kriya in the #fiercegracecollective is just vigorous and brief enough, I am considering using it to replace my attendance at the gym. It includes squats, planks, a little flexibility work, and archer pose. So I'm working with my own body weight. I am really surprised how envigorating it is. I feel like, instead of randomly depleting my energy out into this space full of strangers, I'm drawing strength into me and fortifying myself. Also, the gym doesn't make me buzz with happiness like this kriya does. Something to consider... I'll still have to hit the gym for a weigh in or walk every now and then. #overcomingobesity#shimmyshanti#kriya@loveannapurnaliving
😂😂😂 I’m DEAD right now 😂😂😂 I ordered some LaCroix on Amazon, paid an arm & a leg for shipping, and this is legit how they showed up. I couldn’t make this up if I wanted to. WHO THOUGHT OF THIS?! Thank goodness none exploded!!
R4, D19M1: I know maybe you thought you weren’t going to see these leftovers for every meal I eat today, but you would be wrong. Gene has watch, I have an awards ceremony to attend, it’s raining, it’s cold, and this is just good food. So, it’s definitely breakfast, and probably lunch, and I might switch it up for dinner but I doubt it. (Fine. I’ll fix a salad at some point today 😂😂)

Lovies, if you're following pages, people and accounts that are always throwing the idea of "No Days Off", "Always Grinding", "While You Were Sleeping", "What's Your Excuse?", "Savage" and "Beast" in your face...stop following them. If they're making you feel bad about yourself or that you're not doing enough...get them out of your life. I LOVE working out. Seriously, some people hate to sweat...I LOVE sweat! Sweat makes me feel sexy. I love lifting weights. It makes me feel strong and when I feel strong I feel Hot AF. I love just down and dirty...putting in the work. I'm not afraid of it. I thrive on it. But you know what else feels good? Pajamas! Big socks and comfy blankets! Going to bed early...or sleeping in. Coffee with a girlfriend. Time with family. TIME ALONE!!! I fucking love time alone. Just as important as exercise and nutrition is the time you spend allowing your body and your head to recover. Make sure you're taking time to reflect and time to be aware and check in with yourself and how you're feeling physically and spiritually. As my dad always says to me "You can't go full tilt 100% of the time." This journey is about self healing, balance and living that happy full life you've dreamed of. xoxo
R4, D18M3: I made @theendlessmeal ’s mushroom shepherd’s pie tonight & it was banging! It has carrots & mushrooms & onion in it but I also had half a tomato on the side- so plenty of veggies! This will be made again, and again, and again for sure!!

R4, D18M2: it’s one of those days! Thanksgiving (😂😂😂) on the way in between bible study & an appt! Turkey Epic (my favorite!), pumpkin larabar, and cran-raspberry Lah Cwah.

R4, D18M1: leftover slider burger things & salad!
Today is a pretty scheduled day, that I didn’t really plan for, food wise, so this will hopefully last me through to dinner with the exception of a little snack of epic jerky, a larabar, and some nuts! Just one of those days🤦🏻♀️

1,266 days ago we moved to Okinawa. It was new & exciting, and sure- there were things you couldn’t get here, but there’s Amazon & online retailers that ship FPO so we ordered stuff we thought was worth the expense and went without things we didn’t think were.
Somewhere around like day 1,224 I decided having something I liked to drink other than water was worth it. AND LET ME TELL YOU: that lead me to a rabbit hole of UNICORN KISSES, YETI MISCHIEF, MERMAID SONGS, and DRAGON WHISPERS from @polarseltzer.
Amazon pulled through on this one! Only one can was a little jacked up, but I think I’ll still be able to pop it open and drink it! WHO EVEN IS THIS FIZZY WATER GIRL?!?!
R4, D17M3: I’ve been trying to stay mindful of my potato consumption this round because they can be a FWOB (food without brakes) for me. But this week, I’m in TATER CITY (know what I mean, ladies 😭). Mini meatloaf sliders: just ground beef & salsa! I use Newman’s. Served with a big ol’ side salad with dump ranch!
