It’s getting COOL in here!

Today was a blast🙌🏻 I am sitting here tonight reflecting on what it all means and I feel so empowered.

Because I lead a healthy lifestyle by exercising consistently and eating well, I fit the cool mold ya’ll!! I am going to have #coolsculpting done and will be documenting the entire process here. It’s noninvasive and fits perfectly in my #greenvibetribe world. No down time, which means I can be back to my workouts right away. @lumen_center walked me through everything today and I am so impressed with their location and the amazing women I got to hang out with today….with little Sam tagging along! Lol.

As a 42 year old Mom of 4, I had made peace with certain areas of my body. I am human and popped out 4 humans😂

But why should I settle? Being given this opportunity to show women what else is possible in conjunction with daily fitness and nutrition is exciting!! This permanently kills fat cells. No more yo yo. There is some serious muscle hiding under here and I intend to find it! If you are curious about #coolsculpting definitely consider pairing it with a wellness whisperer🙋🏻‍♀️ (me!) to maintain your results…. and vice versa, if you workout like a beast but can’t lean out a trouble area or two, you need Lumen and a wellness whisperer😂 They really go hand in hand. Watch and see! Check out lumen_center

Kid’s Breakfast Ideas!

Kid's Breakfast Ideas Graphic

Breakfast time is cray cray in my house.  All 4 of my kids always want something different, so I try to make sure I have options to please at least one!  lol  It’s the one meal that I really feel like I have a handle on as far as getting nutrients into my children.

As a Pinterest junkie, I have SO many pins, but these 4 are my “go to” recipes for prepping breakfasts for my crew.  Try them out and let me know what you think!  Which one looks doable for your family?

The creators of these are genius, and links to their original recipes and sites are listed.  YAY.  Sharing is caring!

Be Well,

Leslie

Family Food Fix!

I have 4 kids and they all have different food preferences😳 Somedays this can be daunting. When they walk in and air at the table I usually hear a lot of “do we really have to eat this?” 🤣 Ummm YES. I have to find ways for them to understand that food is fuel first. It isn’t meant to taste like dessert at every meal!

My kids range from age 2.5 to 12.5, so they all have different nutritional needs. My pediatrician doesn’t give me any guidance with that other than asking if they eat the food groups when we go for well checks. It’s my job🙌🏻 I don’t take that job lightly.

The nutrition plan that I have been following has been expanded to include families. Detailing exactly what pretty little containers each age group should be eating. GOLD 💥 I would love to have a group of Moms join me as I do this along with my family. We will work on our nutrition, AND our family’s. A big obstacle for a lot of women is their family. It is HARD to stick to something when the people in your house treat you like you are harming them with healthy food🤣

What if you were guided through a course, step by step with my help? Support from other women doing the same thing? This is strictly nutrition… fitness is totally optional. Get immediate access to everything you need💚 Violetta, my 5 year old, has agreed to follow this with me. She will learn exactly how many servings of each food group to eat, and she will keep track if it herself! Counting colored containers is easy peasy!

Violetta and I would love for you to join us!

Pre Workout Meal Alert!!!! Pumpkin Oat Protein Pancakes

Pumpkin Oat Protein Pankcakes are the bomb.  I really struggled with eating a meal so early.  I usually ate nothing before I worked out.  Now I was feeling completely bloated!  I needed some new ideas.  After I whipped these up, I was in love.  I make a few batches at a time and pop them into the fridge.  They are so simple!

If you aren’t following 80 Day Obsession, add a touch of maple syrup!

Let me know what you think!

Be Well 💚

One year, one day at a time

If you think you can’t, you CAN. If you think you’ve tried it all, you haven’t. If you think one month can’t change your life, I can prove you wrong. 2017’s New Year’s resolution turned into a lifestyle for me. Make today your Day 1. If I can make it work, you can too🙌🏻 ​

Summer Tip!

Summer must have! This NO STING “boo boo” ointment from Sovereign Silver is fantastic. The antibacterial properties of colloidal silver are amazing. Cuts and scrapes look out! We put it to use tonight after Gia fell off of her bike. She approves! No stinging and her cuts felt better! Has anyone else ever tried this?  Get it Here

Chicken Bone Broth

Don’t throw out your chicken carcasses!! Seriously! Make chicken bone broth instead! Check out my video to see exactly how I make it! It makes three meals for our entire family😳 Have you seen what the grocery store charges for organic bone broth?!😱Not only is it economical to make your own bone broth, it has so many nutritional benefits.  

💚Collagen can improve you skin, hair & nails

💚Gelatin helps heal your gut. 

💚Glucosamine to protect your joints

*we prefer the veggies in our broth, but you can take them out after they cook down, or omit them entirely.

*we add gluten free orzo to create our own traditional chicken noodle soup.
