Let's be real... how many of you have said one (or all) of these:
"It's getting cold, all I want is comfort food and to be lazy."
"I'll worry about getting healthy next year."
"F*** it, give me that pie."
"I have too much sh*t going on to workout."
Yeah, like I said...let's be real! It's REALITY that around the holiday season, you just want to throw your arms up and resign to the fact that you're going to gain weight.
But here's also a little dose of reality:
You don't have "a summer body" and "a winter body." You have ONE body. All the time. Just one. That's it. Not kidding. That's a fact.
And you know what that BEAUTIFUL body of yours needs during the holiday season?
- ENERGY ...and lots of it
- STRENGTH ...to lift and load kids into and out of cars
- NUTRIENTS ...to battle all those decadent party foods
- VA VA VOOM ...to look like a snow fox in all those holiday photos ;)
You know how you GIVE your body what it NEEDS?
- 30 minute dialed in workouts IN YOUR OWN HOME (aka no snowy death drives needed)
- simple and effective dialed in meal plan (that you CAN have dark chocolate and wine on....whatttt!)
- a nutrient dense, craving busting superfood supplement
- A KICK ASS SUPPORT SYSTEM of women who will be cheering you on even WHEN you slip up (cause it'll happen..it's the holiday's crazies!)
The trick to surviving the holiday season IS NOT to restrict yourself from all your holiday pleasures, but it is also NOT to give in...every single time. If you KICK ASS for every day that IS NOT a holiday, you won't feel like absolutely garbage come the New Year.
(and you'll look hot as fffff in all those photos!)

Addiction is a really tough subject, but almost all of us have it in some form in our lives. I know this isn't talking directly about me (at least at the moment), but I felt like it was something I really needed to get out to the world.
Hey you kick ass people! If you've been following my Facebook page, you've been seeing workouts posted every Friday. They can be used on their own, or in addition to your regular workouts. BUT I've been a total slacker at posting them on here, so I'm going to play catch up on this post. You'll just have to check back on here on Friday's to catch new ones! (or follow me on Facebook!)
Honestly, I just have to high five myself for my determination and persistence. Life has changed so much because of ONE decision I made. And that is absolutely amazing. Don't forget to subscribe and add me as a friend on Facebook!
Fall/winter brings tons of squash to the farmer's market's and into season in general. Acorn squash is one of those vegetables I was always confused about what to do with, but I started making acorn squash butter (I need to write up a recipe for this!) and I just started with this one that I found in the Fixate cookbook. Absolutely delicious!
-2 acorn squash
-1/2 tsp sea salt
-1/2 tsp pepper
-4 tsp unsalted, organic, grass-fed butter
-4 tsp honey
-1 tsp cinnamon
-1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Core/seed acorn squash.
Coat cooking sheet with spray.
Place squash, cut side down on sheet.
Bake for 35 minutes, or until tender crisp.
Turn cut side up.
Season with salt and pepper.
Drizzle each half with 1 tsp butter and 1 tsp honey.
Sprinkle evenly with nutmeg and cinnamon.
Bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes, or until tender.
This is definitely an unconventional recipe for me, but it was DELICIOUS!
1/2 acorn squash = 1 serving
This came STRAIGHT from the Fixate cookbook (I did NOT create this recipe!) There are SO SO SO many good recipes in this book. It's WELL worth the purchase!
