The Fight of Starting Over

Categories: Faith“Full”, Let's Eat!, Work Out | Posted by: LifewithBri

Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.Philippians 3:11-14

It’s not easy starting over. It can be a scary thing.

Usually starting over means something else has ended, or having to accept that something might have failed or didn’t go quite as planned.

Maybe you have been on the right track with healthy eating habits and began seeing progress from workouts at the gym.  You then decide to have a cheat day, which turned into a cheat week, and then you found yourself back in your old, not so healthy routine and no longer in the gym. I can relate. What now? Continue down the path of unhealthy living? Give up? No. You start again and press toward your goals. You fight.

Or you could be in a not so good friendship or relationship?  Things have changed or maybe things have not changed, and that’s the problem.  What now? Give up? No, but in this situation, starting over could mean two different things.  It’s very possible the relationship is worth saving, so then you fight for it, you work for it, you start over by doing what you need to do in the situation to make it survive. If that is not the case, then maybe it’s time to recognize that it may be the best decision to let it go and start over for yourself without that person. Here, you are fighting for yourself.

On the other hand, starting over can be exciting and worthwhile.

boxing4newFor instance I’ve been on vacation for almost two weeks now– training myself mentally because next week, I start a new job.  In a way, I am starting over.  This new round was unexpected as I am with a new company, a new boss, new co-workers, and will begin working with new people on new, community impacting projects and facing new challenges.  I have fought very hard to get here, nothing has ever been handed to me, and this is a new chapter in my life that I am ready to completely embrace. You see, it’s all very new and a little scary, but I am ready to come out swinging.

Also, earlier this week, a good friend of mine, Vanessa, gave birth to a beautiful baby boy –Tyson Maxwell.  She already has a seven year old daughter, but in many ways she and her husband are very much so starting over. Her pregnancy was not the easiest at first — BUT, she is a fighter; and there will be a lot of “firsts” this time around, but still I have no doubt that God will continue to cover her family as they embrace this new blessing and that they will be able to train him in the way that he should go. I have no doubt he will be a fighter, too.

Listen — life can be overwhelming, we may get knocked down and things happen; both good and bad. What you can’t forget is that starting again can be viewed as a good thing. Know that you often have to fail many times before you succeed, a million people will tell you no before they say yes, and you will certainly have to crawl before you walk and walk before you run.

What can you do to help with the fight of starting over?  Don’t just start from scratch.  Instead, I’d suggest taking the following steps first:

  1. Take a look at what you can learn from the past, but don’t dwell on it. –What worked? What didn’t work?
  2. Think about when and where the change occurred (whether good or bad) and get focused on the change you are looking for in the situation overall.
  3. Now, consider what steps can you take to avoid past mistakes? How can you give it your best this time around? How can you fight?

Truth is, many times, we don’t know what to do and where to start. Let alone, how to start again.  I understand.  We get put in situations and don’t know why, so we don’t know how to react. I pray. A lot.

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.Romans 8:26

Remember one thing, we are fighters.  It won’t be easy, but in the end, it will all pay off. In honor of the late and great, Muhammad Ali…“I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’

And so in this very moment, I pray that you too will find the strength to fight and start over –whatever that means for you.

My Best Kept Secret

Categories: Faith“Full”, Let's Eat!, Work Out | Posted by: LifewithBri

Let me start off by saying, the decision starts with you.  Is that my secret?  Well, not exactly, so just keep reading to find out.

So many times I meet individuals who tell me that they want to change, but don’t know how. Even with me I sometimes find myself wanting something so bad, but I can’t seem to put one step in front of the other to get to where I want to go…

I bet there has always been a time where we find ourselves saying:

I want to go to the gym, but…

I want to eat right, but…

I want to start my own business, but…

It makes you start to hate the word, “but” all together.

As a health coach, it is extremely important for me to remember that the most I can personally do for my clients is to help them gain knowledge that they didn’t have before, support them and encourage them throughout their personal health journey. In other words, “you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him/her drink it.”  It’s hard to cope with this at times because I see that so many are so thirsty for change in their life.

Are you the friend who is always down to help out everyone else, but when it comes to putting in the hard work for yourself, you fall short?  Trust me, we’ve all been there. Truth is my best kept secret is no secret at all. In fact, I believe that it is mere common sense.

It’s that “we must take care of ourselves” annnndd like I said before, the decision starts with you. Self-care is one of the most important things we can do in our lifetime, yet so many ignore when they need rest, when they need to exert some energy through play or exercise, and even when they need to eat.  Many often ignore it when they need to be alone and away from the crowd as well as when they need to step out, be more adventurous, and surround themselves with family, friends or even new acquaintances.

It’s important that we take a bath once in a while, listen to the quiet (that’s right—cut off the TV and you’re phone for a day or two), as well as listen to your body after a meal. Take care of yourself.  I can talk for days about how paying attention to how you feel and treat yourself can affect your health overall and also your self-esteem, but I think we already know this.  I could then go on about how our overall health and self- esteem then begins to affect the way we treat and care for others.

So can I ask you a few questions?  No pressure.   When’s the last time you took a bath?  Not a quick shower just to make sure all the dirt was off.  A real bath; the kind with some lavender epsom salt, maybe some soft music playing and the lights down low?  Yes, that’s self-care.

When’s the last time you read a really good book about a topic you were actually interested in or passionate about? Not just floated through your news feed on social media, letting any and everything find a place in “your” mind; but instead learned something new and valuable to your well-being?

Ahhh, yes.  Do you get it now?  What does taking care of yourself mean to you? Believe it or not, eating right, exercising, and even doing something like starting your own business are all aspects of self-care.

Although I call it my best kept secret, I am pretty sure you already knew about it.

After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church– for we are members of his body. (Ephesians 5:29-30).

Thanks for reading. Take care of yourself.

Homemade Ice Cream Anyone? The Healthy Way.

Categories: Let's Eat! | Posted by: LifewithBri

 

Ahh, what better way to enjoy this snowy weather than to make some homemade ice cream?  Not just any ice cream.  A healthy homemade ice cream might I add.  How so?  Well let’s first define what an unhealthy type of ice cream consist of…It usually includes added sugar and a plethora of ingredients that you probably can not pronounce. Don’t worry I still love my pint of Hagan Daaz once in a while too, but one thing I know is that it’s not good for me on a regular basis…

What if you could make an ice cream with all natural ingredients, no added sugar, yet it still was sweet and delicious and don’t forget much healthier for your body?! Now I do want to add a quick disclaimer:  Even with this homemade ice cream, moderation is still a key factor.  Although it is a healthier version and good for you in many ways, you don’t want to go downing a tub of it every day. Remember, too much of  a good thing can sometimes not make it so good for you anymore.

Now that I have that out of the way, let’s get down to it!  Over the past few days I’ve combined multiple recipes to create two very delicious ice cream recipes for you to try for yourself.  Both recipes are quick and easy!

Banana Date Ice Cream

The first one consist of 1/2 to 3/4 can of organic coconut milk, 2 frozen bananas, 10 medjool pitted dates, 1 tsp pure vanilla extract.

Cacao Honey Banana Ice Cream

Now onto recipe number 2!  If you usually like a subtle chocolate taste, this one is for you!  Also, this recipe will make more ice cream if making it for a family instead.  You’ll need 1/2 can of coconut milk, 2 frozen bananas, 20 medjool pitted dates, 1 tbsp. all natural honey, 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract, 1/8 tsp cinnamon, 2 tbsp. organic cacao powder (yum!!!), and I’ll be honest because it didn’t end up having enough liquid to form the consistency I wanted and I did not want to add water, I added about 1 1/2 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk (but trust me, it still came out great.)

ingred collage

Directions: For each ice cream, I used my Nutribullet blender to combine the ingredients, but feel free to use a blender or processor of choice.  First, you begin by blending the frozen bananas and coconut milk until it becomes a smooth consistency.  Then add the pitted and chopped up date pieces, along with any remaining ingredients and blend.  You may have to pulse the blender once or twice to get it to a consistency you like.  You will most likely have fine pieces of date, which is absolutely fine. Once blended, pour into a freezer safe container and put into freezer overnight.

By the way, if you like nuts like walnuts or pecans, feel free to throw in a handful on top of any recipe!

And wallah, here are my finished products.  These ice creams were much sweeter than imagined, especially because I had never really eaten a date before.  Once again, I must reiterate that this sweet treat should also be consumed in moderation, but what better way to eat ice cream than to know YOU MADE IT  and it’s all natural and healthy? You can’t beat that!

If you try any of these recipes, make sure to comment below or email me at talkwithbri@gmail.com and tell me what you think.  Maybe you added something else that you thought would taste good (a healthy something, of course :)) or you just want to share your experience, I’d love to hear from you.

Stir Up Something New: Your 2016 Transformation

Categories: Faith“Full”, Let's Eat!, Work Out | Posted by: LifewithBri

 

HeadShotIt hasn’t even been a full week into 2016 and I already feel something new stirring up inside of me.  Is it the same for you? I feel myself changing, better yet, transforming.  How you may ask? Well, for me, I chose to take a little break from my social media accounts to focus on just that— stirring up something new.  Aside from my blogging, I have really said adios to other social media for a while to get more focused on this year and renew my mind and spirit.

Screenshot (1)

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” – Roman 12:2

 

Let’s remember that transformation begins in the mind. If our mind is cluttered, it becomes extremely difficult to move forward and unfortunately my mind had been quite occupied; hence, my previous post how sometimes we need to clean up our acts. So, I decided to clean up a little myself through a little R&R (rest and relaxation).

Focusing on myself by reflecting each December, along with thinking about what I am really hoping for in the next year, has grown to be one of my favorite things to do at the end of each year.  If you don’t already do this, I highly recommend it.  Take a second and jot down the moments where you were tested and persevered or perhaps you failed, tried again, and were taught a very valuable lesson. Next, think about how these moments affected and molded you.  Now, what you can see yourself accomplishing in the coming future?

Each year, whether you like it or not, “we change.” Whether we are the driving force behind that change is up to us.  Whether that change is for good or bad, well many times, it’s up to us as well.  Since we know that we change, why not give ourselves a little more power behind it and work to “transform” ourselves for the better.  Physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Make it a goal, stir up something new.

How would you like to see yourself transform this year?  Whether you are hoping to switch up your diet by trying a few new healthier foods or recipes that you have detested in the past, that’s a start.  Or could you try a new workout routine that had previously been too hard or you thought you just weren’t capable of at the time? Maybe you are looking to change careers and try something that feels right? Or most importantly, maybe you are lacking something spiritually and are looking to strengthen your relationship with the Holy Spirit. Let’s not be defeated mentally, but renew our minds and transform our bodies and spirits. 

Here are a few articles that may help you to stir up something new and move into this new year to kick-off your healthy 2016 transformation:

Think about it.  If we don’t take a moment to reflect on what we really want for ourselves or visualize it, we just get stuck in a routine that becomes comfortable and maybe not so great for us. But if we focus on moving forward toward the prize that God has for each of us (Philippians 3:14), take some time out to reflect and listen, along with exercising patience, then transformation will certainly occur over time.

It’s 2016. Cheers to a Happy New Year and Happy New You!

Let’s Clean Up Our Act

Categories: Faith“Full”, Let's Eat! | Posted by: LifewithBri

Lately I have been doing a lot of cleaning.  Not just the literal meaning of cleaning that one would automatically think of –like washing the dishes, tidying up your bedroom, and mopping the bathroom floor, but more of a self-cleaning.

Aside from the good, I have determined that there is a lot of unnecessary clutter and for lack of a better word, filth in my life. Can you relate?  Maybe you’re keeping around or spend a lot of time with someone who only has negative things to say or you have a mindset that always gets in the way and stops you from making the right decision.  Maybe you’ve been watching a lot of those crazy television shows, creating an envious and jealous spirit towards what is most likely a false depiction of how life really is for those on the show.  Or maybe your emotions have been having highs and lows, causing you to binge eat on unhealthy food that only satisfy you for the moment before you begin searching from something else.

I can relate.

So I have decided to clean up my act and I want you to do the same. I have decided that I want a clean mind, a clean body and a clean spirit; ultimately cultivating and sustaining a clean heart.

 

Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. – Psalms 51:10

 

 

I am sure there is no easy way to do this and it has always been and will continue to be a challenge (just as it is when you are forcing yourself to clean out that old box of stuff that you just couldn’t bare to see get thrown away).

I say start by listening to your daily thoughts and acknowledging what’s constantly on your mind.  Are your thoughts positive or negative about yourself and others? Are you replaying that same not so great song over and over again (you know, the one that has terrible, degrading lyrics, but you still like the beat)? Do you stay anxious, worried or find yourself judging people during first encounters? Now, it’s time to think bout what is causing you to think this way?  What have you been listening to, watching or reading that may have an effect on you? Is it something you need to keep? Or let go?

Next, reflect on what you are putting into your body. Ask yourself, are these food choices making me feel sluggish or giving me the energy to live the life that God has given me? Maybe even journal your daily meals for 2-3 days and see where you can make improvements, what you may need to take out of your diet and how you can clean it up a bit.

Now that we have covered the mind and body, let’s discuss cleaning up the spirit.  One thing I had to realize is that I desire to live in the truth –because to me, any other way only causes confusion.  And to clean up one’s spirit, we must read and meditate on this truth; God’s word.  That way when faced when sticky situations, we can use this truth to keep us from straying and to keep our mind and bodies clean as well.  A clean spirit can fight all temptations because it will strengthen you to be much more conscious of all other decisions.

I want you to grab your Bible, pick out a few scriptures and reflect on them and what they mean to you right now, in this season of your life. Also, think about what I have shared with you and really focus on what you can do get rid of unnecessary things weighing you down.  With a clean mind, body and spirit, I hope to take one more step closer to fulfill the purpose that God has for my life. So, are you up for a little self-cleaning?

2016 is just around the corner, so it’s time to make room for new opportunities, relationships and other things God has in store for us.  Let’s clean up our acts; together.

It’s Official

It’s Official

Categories: Faith“Full”, Let's Eat!, Work Out | Posted by: LifewithBri

It’s official everyone. Mid-October I reached the portion of my certification program to begin seeing and coaching clients as a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach (call me ‘healthcoachbri‘ 🙂 ). It’s been an interesting journey to say the least.  I am a little over 6 months into my program and my head is literally spinning from consuming so much information.

Not to mention I have not been 100% the last few months health wise, but no complaints here; all is well.

Throughout the program I have ultimately learned so much about myself and my overall health. We all have our own “health hiSTORY” and I have been able to recognize which areas of my health that I am strong and others that I have struggled with all of my life and still need help in as well. I have to remind myself…it’s the reason I started this blog in the first place.  If you need a reminder, check out my very first blog post depicting a young teen Bri weighing around 200 lbs.

I wanted to help people realize that change is possible, but it’s not easy. And I realize that to this point in my life, I have often fought change, clinging onto an unhealthy past.

As a health coach, I strive to work with people to live a healthy and whole life– which will include a lot of change. It takes time, but we focus on balancing physical health, nutrition, career, relationships and spirituality. It’s based on bio-individuality, so not one thing works for everyone.  I build relationships with my clients and get to know them.  Then I help guide them to make better decisions that result in a healthier and whole life.

How do I plan to do this? I am glad you asked…

Why not team up with someone close to me that has a very similar desire to help others, but expresses it in a different way?  My yogi sister, Ashley, of course! She is awesome at what she does; guiding people to a happier and healthier lifestyle through the practice of yoga– a true inspiration. Soon and very soon, we will be launching our bareSOUL yoga and wellness website (baresoulyoga.com) with more information about how you can get involved, so stay tuned!

Next month, I have a few more tricks up my sleeve that I hope to share with you all very soon as well. This is something that I have wanted for a while now and it’s time that I walk by faith and not in fear. Le’ go!!!

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. – 2 Timothy 1:7

 

 

PSA:  Although I have decided that at this time I will not officially be taking on any additional clients until late December 2015, if you are interested in receiving information about a free consultation with me to see how I can be of help to you in making healthy changes in your life, email me at: healthcoachbri@baresoulyoga.com

Love you all,

Fuel Your Workout

Categories: Let's Eat!, Work Out | Posted by: LifewithBri

It’s Day 19 of my 100 Days to FIT for LIFE challenge and it’s time for me to share some of my fitness and nutrition essentials for before, during, and after my workout, or even throughout the entire day.IMG_20150815_185426

If you didn’t already know, what we do before our workout can make or break our potential success.  Let me share with you not only some foods that I make sure to keep handy pre workout as well as after my workout to ultimately make sure that I get the MOST out of my workout:

  1. I always make sure to fuel my body before a workout, unless I work out first thing in the morning and then I definitely make it a point to fuel myself properly afterwards.

 

Pre workout foods: wheat toast or English muffin with peanut butter and banana, parfait with Greek yogurt, fresh berries and granola, oatmeal and fresh fruit , trail mix (sometimes just pistachios or almonds), fruit/veggie smoothie with added protein of choice (usually plain or vanilla whey—check out some protein powder and clean pre workout available at ETBfit.com)

Post workout foods: grilled chicken and sautéed veggies, fish, sweet potatoes, tuna fish sandwich on wheat bread, salad with black beans, brown rice/quinoa with avocado, hummus and fresh veggies

Make sure to follow me on Instagram @googlebri or Tumblr @lifewithbri to see some of these food pics posted on my page periodically:

foodcollage

Here are a few more tips to help you reap the most benefits out of a good workout and keep you motivated:

  1. It’s extremely important to switch up workout routines ever so often so that not only does your body does not get used to it (and no longer reaps the benefits), but so that you do not become bored and lose motivation!
  2. Also, a good way to keep your workouts fresh, new and fun is to incorporate some great music.  What are your favorite songs? favorite artists? What gets you moving? I have found that it is different for everyone. Check out a few of my favorite tunes that just might interest you and get you moving– some of which are oldies, so don’t judge me! : )
  • Get Me Bodied by Beyonce (What’s a workout without at least one great Beyonce track?)
  • One Thing by Amerie (Ooh ohh OH)
  • Senorita by Justin Timberlake
  • Sugar by Maroon 5
  • Lean On by DJ Snake and Major Lazer
  1. As for additional supplements, I will be honest when saying it is extremely difficult for me to stay on track and remember to take them daily, but when I am able to, I definitely reap the benefits. Some supplements I try to take include a probiotic, b12 vitamin (or liquid drop), fish oil pill, regular daily vitamin and/or hair, skin and nails vitamin.

Now, let’s fuel our bodies. #100toFIT #100toLIFE

Bigger than Your Cravings

Categories: Let's Eat! | Posted by: LifewithBri

Say it with me. “I am bigger than my cravings.”  Do you believe it? Or every time you see your favorite dessert, you just HAVE TO have a bite? (You can taste it right?)

Did you know that fatty and sugary foods overall are proven to be just as addictive as cocaine and nicotine combined (if not more)? That’s insane and sadly true.

Yes, for years we have let our unhealthy “cravings” get the best of us;  leading to obesity, illnesses, low self-esteem and the list goes on. So when will it end?  I suppose when we want it to end.

At this moment in my Health Coaching program I am learning about over 70 different dietary theories (Yes, I said seven-TY)!  In addition, we are learning a lot about how no diet is perfect for everyone–some people are vegan, vegetarian, pescetarian…and so on.

At the end of the day, each of us have our own weaknesses when it comes to food and the bottom line is to not let cravings completely ruin your other healthy eating habits. In the past, I have talked about substituting certain foods that are a healthier choice, but still satisfy your taste buds–well let’s try something different.

Instead of swapping out certain foods and completely cutting others from you diet all together, let’s make a list of foods that WE KNOW are healthy and good for us that we like, but don’t find ourselves eating often.  Also, make a list of healthy foods you’ve never had, but wouldn’t mind trying in the future. The ultimate goal is to increase the consumption of these healthy foods in our normal daily meals. By eating healthier foods that we are not normally consuming, our taste buds begin to change and these foods become the ones that we soon begin to crave instead.  Sounds pretty amazing right?!

How often have you wished there would come a day when you only ate healthy food ad loved it as much as that highly processed fast food and sweets that many of us crave on a normal basis?  With this, it’s definitely possible (without the feeling of deprivation).

Now my disclaimer:  it’s okay to “treat yourself” once in a while and honestly many foods that are good for you have natural sugars that are wonderful for your overall health, but the over consumption of processed, high in sugar and fatty types of food on a normal basis is just not good for you (we all know it) and only creates more unhealthy cravings for you to continue eating them.

Remember that it’s not going to happen over night, but with time, you can become much “bigger than your cravings.”

Walk that Talk

Walk that Talk

Categories: Faith“Full”, Let's Eat!, Work Out | Posted by: LifewithBri

Is there something you’ve been saying you are going to do for a while now? Maybe it’s your finances holding you back or you think that maybe now is just not the right time? (This may very well be the situation)—BUT what if it’s just time for you to stop daydreaming and only thinking about what you want to do? Is it time to “walk that talk?”

Well, if you know me, you know I love Health and Wellness.  Like everyone, I am far from perfect, but I strive to be a healthier me in every aspect of my life and I have always aimed to help others in the same way.  By writing on my LifewithBri blog and teaching health and wellness classes at my church, I was hoping to reach different individuals and help in any way I could, but something was missing…my certification.

I am pleased to announce that this past week I enrolled into an intensive 11 month Health Coach Training program and began the journey to  become a Board Certified Integrative Health Coach recognized nationally by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.  It’s time to “walk that talk.” At the 6 month point in the program, I will able to begin coaching my very own clients and finally begin a side career in something I am truly passionate about in life!

This is something that I have personally wanted for a while now, but always found an excuse to place is on the back burner–well, not any longer! I has certainly taken me some time to muster up the courage to take this step forward in this new chapter in my life.  With much prayer, so much love and support from family and friends, and my faith in God, I am confident that I am making the right decision. I know that he will continue to provide the much needed strength and continue to open the doors needed for me to be successful (just as he will do for you.)

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.- Jeremiah 29:11

Trust me, it’s a lot easier said than done, BUT it will be well worth it.

I look forward to sharing all of the information I am given about nutrition, building strong relationships, physical activity, career health, spiritual health and all other knowledge I gain throughout this program.

So what area in your life do you need to begin to “walk that talk”?  Don’t overwhelm yourself by trying to do too much at once, but what is that one thing that you really want to focus on accomplishing? I say go for it. I say begin placing one foot in front of the other, holding tight to God’s unchanging hand and letting him lead you into his marvelous light! Walk that talk with me…

“Stuff Yo’ Peppers” Recipe

Categories: Let's Eat! | Posted by: LifewithBri

Mmmm, who doesn’t love stuffed peppers? Well I didn’t before I created my very own fun, tasty, yet healthy recipe. Check me out..

Let me just start by stating that I did not follow a recipe!  In fact, I didn’t even look at one, but I had eaten them before in the past and remembered the main ingredients (also giving it a little spin of my own.) Plus, I thought to myself, “how hard could it be to stuff a pepper with ingredients that I already love?”

Ingredients:

stuffedpeppers2

  • A variety of peppers (any kind- green, red, yellow, orange)
  • Ground Turkey
  • Olive oil
  • Brown rice
  • Fresh Garlic
  • Onion
  • Mushrooms
  • Fresh Spinach
  • Bag of frozen corn
  • Diced Tomatoes  (partially drained-no salt added)
  • Tomato Sauce
  • Seasonings of your choice

stuffedpeppers

 

My cooking directions:

 

  1. Sautee garlic, onions, mushrooms in olive oil
  2. Add the seasoned turkey meat
  3. Add the pre-washed fresh spinach and let it cook down
  4. Add the rice (cooked) and the 1/4 the bag of the rinsed corn
  5. Add the partially drained diced tomatoes and stirred

  7. Top the peppers with tomato sauce and bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees
  8. And wallah…Enjoy!

 

It was fun, simple, delicious and most of all…HEALTHY.  My challenge to you is to ‘stuff yo’ peppers’ and tell me how you like it. 🙂
