The gifts of AUTHENTICITY

Authenticity…what it really means and why finding it was a game changer!

I chose this photo to highlight because it combines the things that make me ME
[ laughing, nature, and true connection]

How it’s defined:
:  true to one’s own personality, spirit, or character is sincere and authentic with no pretensions.

I underlined the word OWN for a very important reason, {the reason it took me so long to be comfortable being 100% authentic} you can’t live out your own authenticity while carrying a blueprint given to you by others. 
Blueprint… yes I know I sound like I’m talking architect lingo, but what am I actually talking about?
I’m talking about what you were told growing up or throughout your life, from friends, family, strangers, teachers, who ever.  About “who you were” ,”what you could do or be” , “who you’ll become”, “what your journey should be” and how that formed your opinion of yourself and how you live your life based off of that.

These cookies are chewy, bursting with ginger flavour and best of all… made with only wholesome ingredients…cue the cheering! Yay for healthy swaps.

Recipe Food Facts:

  • Black strap molasses used as it contains minerals and vitamins such as calcium, copper, magnesium, manganese, selenium, potassium, vitamin B6 and niacin. Making it a more nutritious option than fancy molasses. This ingredient also helps with energy 🙂 
  • Completely gluten-free, perfect for anyone with sensitivities.

Picking Protein, What You Need To Know!

Plant Vs Whey
Plant based proteins usually have the same grams of protein as whey, however, in order to get that content companies use things like: pea, sprouted brown rice, hemp, and chia. This type of protein is perfect for vegans or anyone with lactose intolerance, or dairy allergy.
Whey protein is a milk protein and is a dairy product. It’s a protein-packed punch and contains amines – specifically Leucine, which assists in protein synthesis and muscle formation.

Fighting Against Negative Self Talk

My feeling after experiencing the classic “Running High” 

Nothing keeps me more motivated than that feeling of ACCOMPLISHMENT 🙂 

However, getting to that feeling of accomplishment doesn’t always come easy, in fact, sometimes it’s a huge struggle, one I wanted to share with you, to hopefully inspire you in a positive way. 

If you’re like me, than sometimes before you start some form of physical exercise, you without trying, start thinking of negatives surrounding, how it’s going to go, feel, or how much it will hurt, etc. You may not mean to think that way and you might not realize how much it’s impacting you or even where it stems from. However, I’m here to tell you, if you can get quiet and listen for those negative thoughts and start reversing that mindset, your physical work will become so much easier and more rewarding and that will transfer into a positive mindset all around. 

I’m someone who loves the feeling after a good workout, it’s what keeps me coming back. There is nothing quite like it, my body needs to feel that surge of endorphins {helps to block pain and is associated with the feeling of euphoria} to help me get things done in the day and to feel more joyful on a daily basis. If you haven’t found something you enjoy doing, DON’T STOP LOOKING! Get out there and try different types of exercise, there are so many options you are bound to find a few you like. Continue Reading
