She crushed mr owl and i crushed the chips. all in all a good afternoon. πŸ¦‰

if you don’t know this about me i love animals. particularly dogs. i have 3 living with me and this little nugget (her name is brie) lives with my daughter. she is my spirit dog. she gets me. i can’t get enough of her.
i am sitting with her while her mommy is visiting my dad. i know it sounds like a riddle. anyway, today i bought a new toy for her while we walked and she demolished it in seconds!
there is nothing like the feeling of satisfaction i am guessing she has once that d**n squeaky is dead!
ripped mr owls face apart, turn out the stuffing, pounced on the squeaky and just for good measure tore off a little foot. she then calmly moved on to a bone.
she is the best!

This came across my feed today at just the right time.

feeling discouraged i laid down to rest. for some reason i got up (i can’t remember why), moved around a bit, picked up my phone and went to lay back down. while doing so i opened and scrolled my feed and πŸ’₯ ! this stopped me in my tracks.

i realized my body isn’t tired. my mind isn’t tired. my soul is tired. i said out loud my soul needs fed.

i am guessing we often confuse these feelings. and even if we don’t, we might not know how to feed our souls. it’s should be as easy as going to the gas station and saying fill’er up!

we all know it’s not that easy. for some it takes getting back to nature. maybe a walk, listening to a sound machine, sitting outside and listening to the birds. for some a book, some music, a prayer. maybe a hug, a kiss, an act of kindness. others cleaning the garage or a drawer. you know what feeds your soul although it is sometimes hard to recognize you need it.

let me reassure you that it’s ok (imperative really) to nourish your soul. don’t feel guilty about it. no need to question it. the rest of you can not give a πŸ’―% without the strength and fortitude of your soul.

find your soul food and feed it with pride. feed it often. watch yourself soar. πŸ’«

I decided on and ordered my first at home test to find out a little more about my nutritional needs.
a quick explanation about why i have become so fascinated by the prospect of becoming the healthiest version of myself.

the obvious reason is i want to feel and look my best. we all take pride in how we look, that’s not being vain, it’s honoring yourself. 7 years of exercising regularly and eating 50/50 i was still struggling with redefining my body.
very happy with the supplements i have added in the last several months and have seen results losing 10 pounds although i still feel bloated and uncomfortable.

i struggle with chronic inflammation showing itself through ms and hashimotos. there is no cure for either but there is some research that suggests nutrition and exercise (along with limited stress) can improve symptoms and slow progression.

i don’t know whether these things are true but it sure can’t hurt to find out!

i am super excited to get the test and then the results. i will share the process, results and outcome as i go! if you have had an experience with any of these tests i would love to hear!

I haven’t always been one to consider food as a source of disease and/or discomfort. over the last two years i have been educated on how food or certain foods affect us individually. our mood, our strength, our overall digestion. i am just now scratching the surface about the uniqueness of our individual bodies. it’s fascinating.
in the coming weeks i will be testing out a few different food sensitivity tests and sharing my results here on the gram.
i hope it helps someone with their own questions!

I really, really didn’t want to get up. i have been so low energy the past 10 days. parts of my body (some i didn’t even know i had) are just aching. my mood is blue. my brain is foggy. my words have been a bit jumbled.
and d**n this weather! chilly, a little cloudy. it’s june mother nature. get with the program.
to top it all off i have rewashed the same load of laundry 4 times. i just don’t have the desire or energy to put them in the dryer, so each day when i leave to workout i wash them again.
here’s the good news....i am super excited to try this new face serum coming out this week!

When you saturday morning workout @shred415northshore has been over for 30 minutes and you are still sitting in the parking lot waiting, just waiting, for enough energy to drive home.
