my smoothie bowl for lunch today was so amazing and yummy and looks so aesthetic especially in the @tropeaka coconut shell bowls!
- 1 frozen banana
- cup of frozen mango and pineapple - handful of frozen mixed berries - @tropeaka spirilina powder - Maca Powder - coconut sugar - 1/4 cup almond milk
Topped with granola and shredded coconut 😍😍😍
Last night I was thinking about my schedule. 9pm the kids in bed, go walk the dogs. 10pm foam rolling & stretching. 10:30 shower & meditation. 11pm go to bed. Life started to feel like an endless list of quests and all the things I love doing like chores. .
Then I thought...STOP.
Suddenly I realized how PRIVILEGED I was to be able to do all these things. To go out with the dogs after the kids are in bed. To move my body. To have a husband who takes turns with me putting the baby to sleep and getting up with him & joins me for stretch & meditation sessions. These are things I used to only dream of. These are things that felt like utopia when I was incapable of doing things for my wellbeing. Now they are my lifestyle. Because I CHOOSE to live like that. My life is no longer something that happens to me. My life is the result of things I CHOOSE to do. .
And the moment I stepped outside I saw this amazing sunset over the lake & my heart was full of gratitude. .
Blown away by how lean I feel after the weekend I’ve had 🙈 I think that SP has definitely helped me pull back from the damage and I’ll be all set for a maintain on the scale tomorrow 🤞🏻 Continuing with this plan until Friday and I’ve decided to maybe do 2 SP days a week to speed things up and get to my target by my birthday 🙌🏻 Time is flying by and it’ll be T’s birthday soon 😍 Gonna buy one of his gifts today and maybe make a reservation for a nice birthday dinner together 😄 Blessed that he has chosen to spend another year of his life with me and while this past year has been very challenging, I know that our relationship is stronger because of that. Reapplying for college today and I’m finally gonna go for professional cookery because that’s where my passion lies so we’ll see 🎉 Can totally do a cooking course and Slimming World together, yeah? 🤔 I hope you’re all having a great day 💞
hey guys! My name is Maeve, I’m 19 and I am from Sydney Australia! My aim for this account is to document my health and fitness journey which is something that I am extremely passionate about! I love healthy food and currently am undertaking the Kayla itsines bbg guides for my training 🙌 this account is an outlet for me to document my food, progress and overall health goals! .
With the food that I will be showing I eat a mostly plant-based 80% vegan/paleo diet inspired a lot by my favourite YouTuber @sarahs_day ❤️❤️
(Hopefully one day I will have abs as good as Sezzy!)
Thanks @lindsayjgordinier for these wise words 💫
Flashback to yesterday in the car when my family and I were deciding whether to do lunch or the Santa Monica Pier first 🎡 My sis wanted Dippin’ Dots at the pier, so we thought lunch would make sense 🍽 until I realized I didn’t wanna eat right before going on the dragon ride 🤢 (see story 😃) When the Pier won, I said, “There are no rules about when to eat dessert anyway,” and @lindsayjgordinier so beautifully and whimsically said, “Maybe the sweets were always meant to come first.” ✨
This sparked a quick debate about whether it actually matters, and it’s true you don’t want to always fill up on sweets to the point where you don’t want nutrient-dense foods 🙆🏻♀️
BUT the point is, there are NO rules about when it’s “okay” to eat dessert. Your guiding principles are what I call the Big 3: hunger, fullness, and cravings 🌟🌟🌟 Have something sweet at 9am, before lunch, whenever. Be mindful, yes, but if he only thing stopping you is a “should” about whether it’s “okay” then eff that noise 🙅🏽♀️🙅🏼♂️
🍵Soups and stews are best had during your menstrual phase as they are warming, cozy and nourishing. 🥣🔥Of course I like to pack mine full of vitamins and minerals from @meadowmarrowbonebroth lemon and herb bone broth and it also makes this classic pumpkin soup SO DAMN GOOD. I also like adding an extra boost of flavour with some @myhemple hemp seed pesto and toasted coconut chips ✨💕😋RECIPE IN TOMORROWS NEWSLETTER
HELLO WEDNESDAY! 🌷
Been out walking in nature today with mom & dad 😁🍃 Nice weather & a lot of laughing +++ ☘️🌤😅 Equipment Free Challenge 3.0 wasn’t too hard but wasn’t easy either!! 🙌🏽 Make gooooood choices 🙂
My little yogi 🧘♀️ This kid loves joining in on my home yoga sessions! The other day I walked into the lounge room to find that she’d rolled out my yoga mat, opened up my @sweat app, and was following along happily to @sjanaelise yoga flow 😍 I die, so cute!
I started going to formal classes a few years before having kids, and continued on with prenatal yoga throughout my pregnancies. But I’ve had a break the last few years with it being hard to find the time as a mum. I’ve recently gone back to my old studio and it’s been so good to be back!
I’m not a naturally flexible person. My entire life I wasn’t even CLOSE to being able to touch my toes, but since starting yoga it has gradually improved over time. I still have a LONG way to go (swipe 👈) until I reach one of my goals of a full forward fold where I can wrap my arms around my legs, but progress is progress and like anything patience is key!
Thankfully my yoga classes are a little more serene than my home sessions (pic 3 😂), always a challenge when my littlest terror decides to join in! .

Fresh fruit & açaí bowls are my absolute FAVORITE summer foods😍🙌🏻 Nothing can beat it on a hot day...so refreshing and yummy🤗😋 Eating an abundance of fresh fruits and veggies is the best part of eating a HCLF vegan diet🥦🍓🥝🥒😍...along with being able to eat as much as you want without having to even think about counting calories🙌🏻 It may not be the ideal diet & lifestyle for everyone, but I love it🤗
If you have any questions or you’re thinking about going vegan & don’t know where to start or need advice, don’t hesitate to comment or DM me☺️😘💕

🌸Just pull your shit together, and go workout 🌸
⬆️Today was this kind of day ⬆️ I was tired from work, I slept like shit, and I wanted to come home and just sleep. But I knew it wasn't my body telling me not to workout, it was all in my head 🚫 I am all for listening to your body, but sometimes your mind likes to play tricks, so you have to go get shit done ✅ My workout was sub par, and anything above gear 8 felt HARD. My legs may have been fatigued from yesterday, but I told myself to just get through the class even if it meant riding at 50% strength. So thats what I did 💪
Did I have a great workout? No. Am I glad I went? Yes! Kind of. At least I will be tomorrow 😅 For now, I am wrecked and hungry. But tomorrow after a good sleep I'll be satisfied that I tried my best. Its Monday, it can only go up from here!

Happy hump day lovelies! Here is my #ootd in my fave onesie ft. my booty. --------------------------------------------------------
I'm starting to get so confused about the days of the week! 🙈 Does anyone else get that when they're feeling super busy?? ----------------------------------------------------------
it’s my favorite day!! #transformationtuesday 🎉🎉🙌🏻🙌🏻🎉🎉 I love seeing pictures of people throughout their journeys in life because it shows their improvement-physical AND mental.
These 2 pictures are 1 year apart. SO much has changed in this 1 year.
Back to what I was saying in my email and IGTV video, it’s ALL ABOUT 🔑CONSISTENCY🔑.
It’s honestly hard to post that pic on the left because it was a time when I desperately wanted to change but didn’t know how.
So I stayed consistent with my goals, I went to the gym 5-6x a week, I hit my macros and stayed positive.
How I looked back then was NOT how I wanted to look anymore, and I had to realize that changing my physique would take time, dedication, patience, and consistency.
Even then I was soooo embarrassed by how small I was, but I went to the gym anyway. I stepped OUT of my comfort zone. I got it done. And I did it!
So next time you feel like you aren’t making progress or feel like giving up, understand that you have to be consistent and patient. Take progress pictures. Keep a journal with your goals. And love yourself throughout the whole journey.💕🙌🏻💪🏼🎉

📢📢📢 THIS ONE IS FOR THE MOMMAS OUT THERE! 👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼 When you become a mother, your way of thinking changes.. & if you do ANYTHING for yourself, you always feel guilty! 🗣 But listen to me, YOU DON’T HAVE TO FEEL GUILTY FOR WORKING ON YOUR BEST SELF. 🙅🏻♀️ When your baby is old enough to know, they will appreciate you for it. 👊🏼 I started my journey when my son was 2 and my daughter was 7 months old! Did I feel guilty for leaving their sweet faces to go workout? YES! But do you know what? I KEPT GOING. WHY? because at the same time that I felt guilty, I FELT SO GOOD! 🦄🦄🦄🦄 See, I was I a stay at home mom.. literally always with my babies. 🙌🏼 So going to the gym and working on my myself also gave me back a sense of life outside of being a momma! 🙃
Forward to today, I found a happy medium. I workout at 4:30/5am when the kids are asleep & by the time I get back l, they are usually just getting up! BUT they know that I get up Monday-Friday to go to the gym and THEY ARE MY BIGGEST SUPPORTERS! 🙌🏼💕 They always tell me that they can’t wait to be able to come to the gym with me and exercise! 👌🏼 So mommas, this is a friendly reminder from another momma... never feel guilty for taking some “Me Time”. Whether it’s working out, meeting some friends, going to a movie, or whatever it is!
We are moms. And we are humans.
We all have to do what’s necessary to stay healthy & SANE for our little ones. ✨✨✨
I think the best part about the incoming cooler months is the fact that warm, melty oatmeal tastes 10x better when you’re freezing 😛 don’t get me wrong, it tastes DANG good now 🙌🏻 Here’s how I make it: I took 1/2 cup of rolled oats, 1/2 cup of @califiafarms almond milk, and cinnamon then soaked them all together overnight. This morning I put the oats in a bowl, microwaved them for 1 minute and then for 30 seconds, then I added @earthbalance peanut butter, banana slices, and a strawberry cut up!
Who struggles with UPPER BUTT ⁉️ (TAG a friend & hit that 💛)
You asked for it…so here’s a super simple workout to target the upper butt / “booty shelf”! The best exercises for targeting this area are lighter weight abduction exercises. That said, in order to see significant glute growth, it’s important to combine these with heavier moves you can progress the weight on over time. I’ve noted how to do this below.
1️⃣ DOUBLE BANDED HIP THRUST - 3 sets x 12-15 reps
Add weight by using a heavier resistance band. Just make sure you increase the weight of dumbbells anchoring the band so they don’t move around on you!
2️⃣ SQUAT ISO HOLD W/ BAND PULSE - 3 sets x 20 reps
Add weight by holding a dumbbell goblet-style up next to your chest.
3️⃣ BANDED HIP HINGE - 3 sets x 12-15 reps
Add weight by doing a banded Romanian deadlift instead. The setup for these can be a little tricky, so I’d recommend looking up a video of how to do this with a squat rack on YouTube.
4️⃣ BANDED DONKEY KICK - 3 sets x 12-15 reps per side
Add weight by swapping this for a donkey kick machine at the gym or - if you’re training at home - adding an ankle weight for extra difficulty.
