Is the woman staring back at you fulfilled?

Does she love herself unconditionally?

Is she energized and nourished?

Is she happy?

When I started the 6 month program, my top three goals were to lose weight, eat healthier and workout more. Throughout the program, Brianne helped educate me on what I am putting in my body, and took the focus away from the number on the scale, and instead focused on other life events/day to day life to see how that was affecting me. Brianne is AWESOME. She isn’t pushy, and makes you come to realizations based on what you are saying. I couldn’t have gotten here without you! I will forever be thankful and grateful for the time you spent with me and the things that you have done for me!

  • Are you ready for the BEST dam vegan (&GF) lasagna youโ€™ve ever tried? ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป Seriously.
.
Itโ€™s hearty.
.
Itโ€™s drool-worthy.
.
Itโ€™s carnivore tested & approved.
.
Itโ€™s protein-packed.
.
Itโ€™s creamy, rich and satisfying.
.
And, best part?
.
Itโ€™s 100% guilt-free and easy to prepare ๐Ÿ˜‰
.
Now, I am a huge fan of finding and/or creating recipes that can replace my favourite not-so-healthy foods. But, I have strict criteria they must meet in order to be classified as a โ€˜winโ€™. For instance, they must:
โžก๏ธ Be completely guilt-free (aka HEALTHY)
โžก๏ธ Be an actual replacement (so something that actually looks like what it is supposed to)
โžก๏ธ Be easy to make
โžก๏ธ And of course, taste freaking delicious ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
.
Therefore, Iโ€™m happy to report that this lasagna checks all the boxes- classifying it as a big WIN ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ˜. This is sure to satisfy any comfort food craving, and the best part is that it keeps you aligned with your goals ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜˜.

  • Itโ€™s an exciting (yet wickedly busy ๐Ÿ˜“) time for us as we are just 10 days out from our 6th annual @unmasking.the.myths gala in support of @littlewarriorscanada. ๐Ÿ’•
.
Iโ€™ve talked about it before, but for those of you who donโ€™t know- I, myself am a survivor of child sexual abuse. At the age of nine I was sexually abused by my biological father- and the road to healing has been a long, harsh one... Which is likely the reason I am SO passionate about overcoming trauma, creating a positive mindset, and embracing self-love ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป
.
Six years ago my husband and I founded the โ€˜Unmasking the Mythsโ€™ gala as an opportunity to help children who are currently going through this trauma receive therapy and heal- as I know what it is like to not receive that help. Never would I have guessed that this would serve as my own personal healing journey, or how grand this event would end up becoming. ๐Ÿ˜ญโ™ฅ๏ธ
.
We are so blessed to be able to give back in this way, and volunteering all year gives my heart SO much joy. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป I donโ€™t know where I would be if we hadnโ€™t started this journey together- and now that we have a full committee, things are just getting bigger and better each year ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’•
.
As my husband wasnโ€™t able to be with me on @globaledmonton, I was accompanied by our Vice President, @bxxrams (who nailed it- am I right? ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป) and our interview went off without a hitch (other than the pronunciation of my name of course- which everyone struggles with ๐Ÿ˜‚).
.
Did you catch us on there yesterday? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค—

If not, check out our interview at the link below!

And if you are interested in attending, donating or volunteering, please donโ€™t hesitate to reach out ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ˜˜

  • Well, hello there October ๐Ÿ‚
.
Thereโ€™s just something about October that makes my heart incredibly happy ๐Ÿฅฐ. And no, Iโ€™m not just saying that because itโ€™s my birthday month ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™Š Although that may have a lilโ€™ something to do with it... ๐Ÿ˜‰ But seriously, the month of October to me, screams cozy sweaters, hot tea, and comfort foods on repeat ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป Which, you know Iโ€™m all about!
.
What makes this month even more exciting though, is that our annual @unmasking.the.myths gala is coming up in a few short weeks (canโ€™t believe itโ€™s our 6th year already- ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป)! AND... we are also taking off this Thursday to #Ontario to witness two amazing friends of ours get married ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿฅฐ I am SO freaking excited for all that this month has to offer- and that makes all of the chaos/pressure totally worth it ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป
.
So, needless to say, Iโ€™m going to start this month off right by whipping up a batch of apple butter in the crock pot ๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ and settling in with a cup of hot chamomile tea. Recipes for both my apple butter and heathy apple crisp will be coming to the blog soon ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป

  • Thanks to the incredible help of my handsome husband, yesterday I drove ๐Ÿš—(๐Ÿ˜œ) away with some fancy new wheels. Well, new to me at least!
.
Over a week ago I sold my baby, my first โ€˜big purchaseโ€™ which was a Kia Optima. And although she was beautiful and reliable, I let hubby talk me into upgrading to something a little bigger (and faster ๐Ÿ™Š). So, say hello to my NEW baby, a 2012 Infiniti G37x.
.
Needless to say, Iโ€™m feeling like a kid at Christmas- and itโ€™s probably going to take me a year to figure all these gadgets out ๐Ÿ˜‚ #wishmeluck
.
For real though, itโ€™s amazing how a week without a car makes you extremely grateful for having one again. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป Big thanks to hubby for the endless hours spent on the computer searching for cars, the countless test drives and the know-how for choosing a car that is reliable and wonโ€™t leave me stranded on the side of the road ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜˜ Love you honey!
.
Now, to pick a name for her. Let me hear your suggestions below ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป

  • Time to get a lilโ€™ bit personal.
.
Time to be honest and real.
.
Itโ€™s time to talk about THAT timeโฃ๏ธ
.
.
No need to freak outโ€” periods are a natural part of our bodily functions, and while they may not be our favourite thing to talk about, there are definitely ways to make that time of the month a little more comfortable.
.
Yesterday on my blog, I shared my top tips for having a healthier period (and albeit, a more enjoyable one at that!). Follow the link in my bio to find out what you can do to improve symptoms, beat cravings, and ultimately, feel your dam best the whole time ๐Ÿ˜˜ xo

  • What a perfect, relaxing day ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป Sundayโ€™s have always been and will always be, my favourite ๐Ÿ’•
.
To me, there is nothing better than a โ€˜lazy Sundayโ€™ spent at home, doing the things you love with your loved ones ๐Ÿฅฐ Today we slept in (til 7 am haha)- then I meditated, did yoga, cooked a delicious breakfast with hubby, ran some errands, and now weโ€™re currently cuddling on the couch with plans to go for a bicycle ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ ride shortly. Plus, I will be making a batch of healthy granola and homemade pumpkin cookies this evening! I really enjoy meal prepping while we make our suppers on Sunday evenings- itโ€™s so simple and doesnโ€™t take much effort ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป Plus, then I am all set up for the week!
.
This upcoming week is especially busy, so the more prepared I am, the more likely I am to stick to my goals! On top of meal prepping, Iโ€™m also using today as an opportunity to get ready for all of my commitments this week. So that means printing any documents I need, organizing files, and confirming appointments. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป This week is going to be GLORIOUS. Are you ready for it?! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป
.
Now, yesterday our GIVEAWAY officially closed... and I am super excited to announce the winner! A big congratulations to Kristin Bennett, who has walked away with two tickets to our upcoming Love Your Mindset workshop on September 29! Thanks to everyone who entered- and keep your eyes peeled for another giveaway coming soon ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜ xo
