C r o m i u m . For sugar addicts, this mineral is significant! Almost 90% of Americans are deficient in Chromium (so if you are addicted to #carbs or #sugar, you probably need more of this valuable mineral too.) Chromium is critical for preventing blood sugar swings. Without it, our sweet and carb cravings grow very strong. Chromium also helps build muscle, promotes the burning of unneeded body fat, and helps normalize cholesterol levels. If you crave for sweets and generally can’t resist food cravings, it’s very possible you lack the chromium you need to keep blood sugar levels normal and stable. Chromium helps your body properly use insulin, and may help prevent the insulin resistance that leads to blood sugar issues!!
I have given 100% dedication to our newest program over the course of this past week. This entails working out for 20 minutes every day, fully investing in my nutrition plan, and reflecting on my mental and emotional wellness for 7 days straight. • When you look at these side by side photos, you may not see a lot of progress and that’s entirely okay. Because your opinion doesn’t matter to me and I mean that in the nicest way. I’m not sharing my story for your opinion 🤷🏻♀️ I’m sharing it for the person who is constantly looking to see a change on the outside and who feels defeated with their progress. • When we work on bettering ourselves, the growth starts from within. So while someone may not see a change happening on the outside, it is there. I have a long list of strides I have made over this past week and I’m so proud of it all. Much of this progress includes growth within my emotional and mental state of mind. It’s not always glamorous but it is growth throughout the hurdles and successes I have endured. • Sure, I have dropped 6lbs this week and lost 3.5 overall inches which is a great feat in and of itself. However, when I look beyond the physical growth I see my inner strength building in each moment. I am so thankful for this journey and I am LOVING this brand new program because it’s more than fitness and more than nutrition. It’s about bettering oneself overall! • If you’re ready to find that inner strength and transform your overall emotional, mental, and physical health then this is for you. ✨ • • #healthandfitness#emotionalintelligence#changestartswithin#lovingthisjourney#onedayatatime#focused#everymomentmatters#coachlife#accountabilityiskey
This. Just this. Whenever I feel down and can hardly breathe for the sadness of missing my mom, I take a deep breath and look at the sweet, sweet blessings God has given Travis Bird and me...and I remember that my tears are temporary. This is what matters. #everymomentmatters#blessed
Yesterday afternoon the hubby had a (great 🙄) idea of removing a couple crib bars, so Judah is able to get in and out of his own crib - that way he can walk into our room in the mornings with big brother instead of being stuck in his own bed. The boys LOVED it! They spent the rest of the day hanging out in his bed, going in and out. Reading books. Playing cars. They absolutely loved it. Then bedtime came. Someone enjoyed the freedom a little too much, and for 2 hours he refused to go to sleep! Everytime we looked he was in big brothers bed. Eventually, this is how we found them... how is it that even when they exhaust you, the love for them just wells up! Love the #brotherbond these two get to experience and grow up with 😍
Поскольку @radissonslavyanskaya один из немногих отелей Москвы, который может похвастаться богатой историей, мы решили поучаствовать в #10yearschallenge ! Единственный нюанс это то, что разница на фото все же не в 10 лет, а более 20! Но нам показалось так будет даже интересней 😁 💙 1996 vs 2019 . . . #radissonblu#bluview#radissonslavyanskaya #radissonslavyanskayamoscow#everymomentmatters #yesican#radissonrussia
The journey ahead of us are often met with crossroads. Whether we are at one today, tomorrow, next month, 5, 10, or 30 years later, it is inevitable that we will be confronted with certain life situations that spring that moment of surprise, dilemma, perplexity, and at times (feeling) - a point of no return. How prepared are you? How willing are you for a radical change of path? Are you decisive? Are you spoilt for choices? Wherever you are, embrace that moment, be still and seek wisdom. Our story can only get better. Where are you now? #everymomentmatters#everycrossroadmatters#lifechoices#hesedwisdom#牵我的手#crossroads
Прежде сем осуждать кого-то, возьми его обувь и пройди его путь, попробуй его слезы, почувствуй его боли. Наткнись на каждый камень, о который он споткнулся. И только после этого говори ему, что ты знаешь, как правильно жить #dalailamaxiv#stones#everymomentmatters
Have you run out of hope? Have you been told it's just not possible? Have you been made to feel like you can't do it? This little boy blew me away on Friday Night - we were at a youth group event and everyone had rollerskates on. .I honestly didn't think Judah would be able to rollerskate - but he and his 18 months of life were determined to do it! And you know what? He did! He spent all evening rollerskating - sometimes holding a hand, but often just on his own. He wanted to make it work, and he did! Think there's a lesson for the rest of us to learn that at his young age he's already figured out... oh to be childlike again!
December & January you were the most fun I've CONSISTENTLY had since a challenging year when I lost myself along the way. I reconnected with old friends, met new ones, opened up, and built stronger bonds with some. I have a great time with every person in these pictures and there are others not in this post that also hold a special place in my Life. We just didn't take good pics during those months 😅. Cheers to 2019, learning from mistakes of 2018, evolving, letting go of fear, sparks, making magic happen, and living in the moment! May it be our best year yet. Thanks to those who brought me back to Life & reminded me who I want to be. ❤💙💛 #myfriendstunup#goodfriends#friendswhoarefamily#crewlove#squad#love#livelaughlove#living#thankful#alwaysbecoming#everymomentmatters#gwaanwidit
EVOLVE OR REPEAT? • We always have a choice and often the most inspiring people have endured, what many pervceive as hardship, or had more than their fair share of tough times however they are so admirable due to the way they have overcome, how they have grown and how they have evolved. • Our life experiences always shape the person we are, but how they shape us is up to us. It’s more about how we react & respond rather than the situation itself. • If you find your life is at little repetitive, the same type of people or challenges keep arriving in your then next time simple do something different. • This means you need to develop your awareness, see the lesson or opportunity to evolve coming towards you, feel the urge to do what you have always done, then stop, breathe, take a minute & realize you get to choose how you show up. As you bring in more mindfulness into your life you will find you can be less reactive, show more empathy & change the outcome. • It does not take long to see a big shift in your life when you make these little micromoments count. • So lets flip our thinking, Rather than think ‘why is this happening to me?’ let’s ask ‘why is this happening for me?’, how can I show up in this situation as the best possible version of myself, what growth, lessons, wisdom & life experiences am I going to take away from this. • Life continues to flow, it’s our perspective of each moment & how we feel each day that weaves the fabric of our entire life. • I choose evolve 💗🙏🏼

Sleepy 😴 selfies on Sunday morning in our jammies. She literally just woke up and walked out to the living room to give me a hug and I made her take a picture so we can send it to her daddy. Clearly she should have stayed in bed 😆 #charlyandmommy#selfiesunday
I've often heard that being healthy and eating healthy is expensive. It's not true. Being sick is expensive. The missed family moments, the distracted dinners, wanting to put the kids to bed early, missing work, and then the mental battles that come with being sick - depression, anxiety, the list goes on. Being healthy does not have to be expensive at all - it starts with little changes.
Crazy or cool. I don’t know. But it’s a milestone for this mama 🙋🏻♀️ My first time braving the mall with kids and NO stroller in over 6 years. I can’t say that lots of bribing didn’t take place in the car while sitting in the parking garage before we walked in.
We are back on our regularly scheduled Saturday mornings 🙌🏻 ballet, coffee, donuts for the girls, errands and home for the afternoon. Mommy is still in KonMari mode so I can’t wait to get home!! Happy three day weekend IG!! What is everyone up to?
