This was yesterday. 70 degrees and made a family feel like doing some spring cleaning and prepping the garden area. Currently I think it’s something like 8 degrees with six inches of snow #crazycoloradoweather
This little butterball is 6 MONTHS TODAY 🎉💕❤️ I can’t believe we are here! I’ve tried to be really honest about just how bloody challenging this transition has been and continues to be - mentally, emotionally, physically. From around 4 months I finally started seeing the light, the fog lifted and I felt more like ‘me’ again, albeit changed, but hopefully for the better. I could not have come here without the support of family, friends, strangers and of course my ❤️ @sheckles99. Still SO much to learn, we all are on our own personal journey but it need not be a lonely one.
It’s also made me so much more aware that mental health and well-being is EVERYTHING. Reach out to your friends, your colleagues, your neighbours, all you need to do is sit, listen and be present. It’s not your job to fix it, but maybe it is up to all of us to ask the question.
These days pure and genuine kindness is incredibly underrated in my opinion. Why people find it okay to be mean and hurtful to others is beyond me. I will never understand what people get from it. With so many tragic events lately try to be a light to someone... lighting someone’s candle does not extinguish your own! 🔥
👑 I’ve been feeling like a King recently!! Feeling strong, feeling powerful, being calm, collected, at peace. I believe I would’ve been a great king. A humble, fit, balanced king with a beautiful queen by my side. A queen of equal power, poise, and knowledge. A team, a partnership, a power couple. Fair, truthful, understanding, with non-judgmental love for each other. A great king that is instantly greater because of his queen, and a queen that holds even more power from being backed by her king. Constantly there for each other, and always longing for each other. If distance separates them, they can find comfort in knowing the other is there for them, whether they realize it or not. As long as the mutual Love, Respect, Honesty, and Openness was there, then I would always be there for my Queen, 👑 -
How 🤦🏼♀️NOT 🤦🏼♂️ to work the triceps ❎ : the tricep muscles run down the back of your arm, from just below the shoulder down to your elbow. Here’s a video of the most common tricep crimes committed in 2017. Look at how these offenders take zero responsibility for their offenses. Shame shame shame 🤭. Among these offenses include: 1️⃣ bowing the elbows outward during tricep pushups 2️⃣ bowing the elbows out during overhead tricep extensions 3️⃣ swinging dumbbells to and fro 4️⃣ swaying the back like one of those wacky inflatable arm flailing tube man things at car dealerships 5️⃣ dancing like Pee Wee Herman. Just no. Don’t be like these goofballs. This special report sponsored by Jolly Bodies and all the triceps.
OVERNIGHT CHIA SEED PUDDING:
1 1/2 cups (360 ml) Almond Breeze Almondmilk Original Unsweetened
1/3 cup (63 g) chia seeds
1/4 cup (24 g) cacao or unsweetened coco powder
2-5 Tbsp (30-75 ml) maple syrup if not blending
optional: 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Add all ingredients except sweetener to a mixing bowl and whisk vigorously to combine. If not blending (which I preferred!), sweeten to taste with maple syrup at this time. If blending, you can sweeten later with maple syrup or dates.
Let rest covered in the fridge overnight or at least 3-5 hours (or until it's achieved a pudding-like consistency).
If blending, add to a blender and blend until completely smooth and creamy, scraping down sides as needed. Sweeten to taste.
Leftovers keep covered in the fridge for 2-3 days, though best when fresh.
Serve chilled with desired toppings, such as fruit, granola, or coconut whipped cream.
