Quality of Life: Room For Burgers

One question no one will ever ask is how much did you weigh at your wedding? That’s because it’s a dumb question and no one cares. They may ask about your colors, your cake, and probably your honeymoon.

My hope while planning this entire thing, is for people to say how much fun it was and remark on just how much love was shared between Jason and I with all of our guests. To see beyond the wedding and see into the life we are building and have tremendous gratitude for. 

The same goes true for the social media audience I’ve built on my platforms. I want any visitors who stop by to see a true love for fitness here. Not simply a love for my physique, but instead a true love for my body and how I treat it. I hope it is clear the love I have for smart products, do-able workouts, and conscious food choices. I’ve been on a mission to cultivate a true platform for living well. A new standard. That is why my page features more recipes and workout pics than selfies. 

PRO TIP: When you are invited to a dinner party, offer to bring the salad. Arrange the toppings in this manner to account for dietary preferences for guests. Top with quality ingredients. You are sure to have a fabulous side of fresh veggies on your plate!

Life is constantly happening and is extremely unpredictable. You need more ways to incorporate sustainable healthy habits into that well crafted life you’ve built for yourself. The two must compliment each other. The clients or readers who are the most frustrated or the most desperate are the ones who have trouble making that distinction. They are so busy trying to force an eating style or rigorous workout program into a life that simply doesn’t have room for it. They would be better served adopting a plan that makes sense for their personal schedule and goals. 

How that’s looking currently for me…

Yes! I’ve stepped up the upper body weight training for the big event…wedding/honeymoon. It is similar to how I would step up speed while training for a big race. To accomplish new goals, we must try new things. It is a simple rearranging process. I spend the same time working out, but my time spent is divided differently. I love adapting and adjusting my workout regimen to reflect new challenges. It’s where I find tremendous success both as an athlete and a trainer. By changing and shifting things from time to time, change happens. Daily prayer and meditation anchored by wellness is necessary. It’s also a great way to round out a comprehensive wellness program.

My clients never get the same workout twice. Currently, we are spending a lot of time with build-able HIIT Workouts. Great for strength building, fat burning, and building cardio capacity. Want to know more, come sweat with us

Taking breaks, and enjoying your favorite splurge foods like burgers is also part of the program I recommend. If you think it’s strange for me to encourage my clients and readers to eat burgers, you haven’t been paying attention or this blog isn’t for you.

My tribe reflects a vibe that showcases quality of life. That includes dinner parties, restaurant openings, date nights and weddings.

We are all trying to be the best versions of ourself. The best wife, the best mother, the best business owner, or the best bride we can be. It’s up to each of us to decide and determine what our best looks and feels like.

Quality of life for me is finding a way to live stronger and sustainable in all things wellness, fitness, and nutrition. I love the word sometimes.  It is another word for occasionally. Sometimes workouts leave us depleted. Sometimes we binge on never ending chips and salsa. Sometimes we run a double digit run route. Sometimes we take a day off….Sometime it rains…that doesn’t mean we live in a rainforest. 

Exclusivity and restrictive eating isn’t something I’m interested in. Routine is.

Make room in your day, week, life for wellness and living well. While we CAN’T out-train poor daily eating habits, we CAN develop a program that includes for our favorite things.

A solid weekly schedule that includes workouts, meditation/prayer, and meal planning must be part of your program and is crucial for success. Set yourself up for a win by learning how to navigate your way through a vacation, a festival, or a traumatic life event. Ask me for help! Trendy workouts or fad diets aren’t the answer. The key to it all is finding a style that works for you and your needs and by joining a tribe that supports that.
