Comparison makes us think the grass is greener on the other side . . . but it’s actually greener where it is watered . . . so if you want greener grass, GET OUT THERE AND WATER YOUR GRASS!
We must realistically assess ourselves without comparison to others . . . understanding that another person’s strengths do not make us weak anymore than their failures make us successful!
it’s totally unrealistic to compare our real behind the scenes life to other people’s ‘filtered highlight reels’ that we see on social media. Our ONLY comparison should be to ourself. WE ARE OUR ONLY COMPETITION!!! No one else!
So, prayerfully consider who God created you to be and GO TO WORK. Do it for you, and for Him . . . NOT because you are striving to have what someone else has!! Only then will you have the satisfaction of a JOB WELL DONE 🙌
Blessed day y’all . Without a doubt truly blessed 💜 being alive to go through even the bad times is amazing. I’m truly grateful to God. He’s my everything. Just know that whatever we are dealing with is just momentary. It’s part of his plan. To shape us, to mold us into his vision. I know it hurts but believe me that pain you’re feeling is something to be grateful for. Why? Because you’re here , alive and able to experience this thing called life. Not everyone makes it this far.. remember that the next time you whine and complain about it. Because at least you’re here. #blessessaturday#foodforthought#feedyoursoul#begrateful#eventhroughthestruggle#itllgetbetter#ipromise#godsplan

Anyone else like to go brunchin’ on weekends? 🙋🏻♀️ I fell in love with this cute spot in Amsterdam. Our meals were so YUM😋 and so was this awesome freakshake 🥤. Yes it’s actually called the “Healthy Freakshake” 😂 — it’s pressed juice topped with fruit 🍉 🍓🍒. It’s a must stop 🛑 if you’re ever in the area!
Яблочный пирог с соленой карамелью и корицей. Эстетика хромает, поэтому пусть это будет просто идеей для хозяек. (Состав: слоеное тесто, яблоки, коричневый сахар, сливочное масло, соленая карамель, корица, яйцо для смазки верхушки, миндальная стружка). Сочный. Чересчур сочный. Потек. Возможно нужно было подстраховаться крахмалом. Но это так... мысли вслух :) #apple#applepie#pie#cinnamon#caramel#dessert#sweet#saturday#rest#homemade#odessa
Fall time is a lovely time to remind ourselves that in order to continue growing, we need to shed parts of us that no longer serve us well. And that process? 🍃Breathtakingly beautiful that we look forward to it every year. 🍂 Let that simmer, friends. 🍁 #foodforthought#selfcarenotselfish

Fastest and most satisfying lunch on the planet when you’re running your teens all over town. 🍂🍎🥜🍁
Being active is a hell of a thing. Regular, consistent activity can combat a plethora of health risks that affect the general population. There's no magic pill that will alter years of poor health decisions. And not one diet will work the same for two people. --------------------------------------------------What can be controlled is the amount of energy we expend on a daily basis. I'm genuinely eating the most I ever have in my life, why? Because sitting still is no longer a preferred choice of mine. -------------------------------------------------- I'm not buying into the fear mongering that exists in the nutrition-space, I eat the foods I want. Life is too short to be afraid of food. Have mind you, it's taken years of developing a healthy relationship with food first, but I'm here now, patiently waiting for my sponsorship from Post or General Mills for the amount of cereal consumed and waking around in skin that I'm proud of.
Just some food for thought this lovely Saturday!
We live in an age of diet culture and many of us grew up believing that the key to being healthy was in what you DIDN’T eat. People are praised for good self control when they miss meals or have tiny portions. But your body needs to be fed and it needs calories, proteins, fats and carbs (yes even carbs) to be healthy! Good nutrition is about the quality of foods you are giving yourself. You have to put good in to get good out.
If there’s one thing you make this week, you should make stuffed squash! This Southwest Stuffed Squash was legit!!

Vegan & gluten-free PUMPKIN CORNBREAD pancakes!! 🤤 You guys already know I don’t do pretty pancakes well, but what you don’t know is that they do taste GOOD. This was such a winning fall combo, you have to try! I topped mine with @pbloveco fresh Colorado made cinnamon almond butter that my mom got me- this stuff is some of the best I’ve had. All good ingredients and sustainably made. Can’t forget maple syrup of course! Perfect fuel for a Saturday spent studying 🤓 Recipe as follows: .
Preheat griddle; add to bowl 1 tbsp flaxseed with 2 tbsp water, sit aside for 5 min; add 1/4 cup @bobsredmill cornmeal, 1/4 cup pumpkin, and 3/4 cup almond milk- mix well; sift in 1/2 cup @bobsredmill oat flour, 2 tsp baking powder, ~1 tsp pumpkin spice. Let sit for 10 minutes, should get nice and fluffy. Cook 3-4 minutes or until bubbles form, then flip and cook for another 2. Top and Enjoy!!
It only works if YOU work. There’s no easy way around it. No magic pill, wrap, lotion or shake. It’s hard work, dedication, showing up for YOU even when you don’t want to. It’s sweat and tears and laughter. It’s all of the things because YOU. ARE. WORTH. IT. .
No excuses November boot camp is coming up soon! Right before the holidays - get at me for some more info! I’ll be starting it off with a 3 day cleanse, which is totally optional. Let’s keep each other accountable. I’ve got only 10 spots open in this boot camp! .
I watch your eyes light up
as you talk of things you love.
A smile shining so bright,
Your laugh like fluttering leaves
in the wind.
You are like lightning,
electric and buzzing through the air.
Your current is contagious,
and I am happy to be shocked

Did you know that Charles Dickens owned a bookcase which functioned as a secret door in his house, and was populated with fake books bearing amusing names including “Jonah’s Account of the Whale”, “The Lives of a Cat” (which came in nine volumes), and “The Art of Cutting Teeth”. Also 68% of books sold worldwide are bought by women. 🤔📖🕯I’d guess it’s because woman are more mentally stimulated than physically. #FoodForThought • 📸 @rhoscoephoto •
