Tough Love

❤️TOUGH LOVE POST❤️

Okay, let’s talk EXCUSES! We all have em!!

Excuses are used to get out of things that make us uncomfortable. 
(in the case of my topic anyways, this does not obviously apply to everyone and every situation)

So many people find excuses on why they can’t workout and/or eat well. “Tomorrow I’ll take control of my health, next week…in a month……”
I get it, I was there. “I don’t have time for that…..I have three kids to look after before myself…..I’m too tired to think about adding more movement into my day.” etc. It was pure laziness…… Lets be real, I wasn’t making myself a priority.

Excuses…..sigh….It’s all BS. I’m sorry! I completely 100% get where your coming from but I know first hand its BS.
I made excuses for so long, too long. my physical and mental health was left to pay for my excuses. I decided to just say FUCK IT and put my health at the TOP of my priorities. BEST decision I have ever made.
You have to convince your mind, your body will do anything you tell it too!
When you commit to yourself you find the time, you make the time, won’t allow yourself to fail cause its a priority!
We all have 30 min a day to invest in ourselves. You know that too.

I know I’ll keep hearing excuses and that’s honestly okay, I’ll continue to listen to them but I know behind each one is a lack of priority. I will understand. I will be here when you decide to make the leap. 💚 I will be SO FREAKING STOKED for you!

Healthy body. Healthy mind. Healthy life.

Over here snakin’ on roasted chickpeas


Do you open the cupboards over and over and find nothing quick and healthy to eat? Ugh, I do. It’s smart to be ahead of the game. Here’s a go to recipe that’s SUPER easy to follow. I put them on salads, in Buddha bowls and shove em in my mouth by the hand full. 

Guilt free. Satisfying. Full of fibre and vitamin C. 

Here’s what you do!

Heat oven to 400°. 

Wash chickpeas well in a strainer. Dry them afterwards with paper towel. 

Place on baking sheet. Drizzle with evoo. Here’s where you can get creative with flavour. Or keep them plain (at least add some salt)! This is what I use: S&P, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, cayenne. Once you get them seasoned and oiled toss around with your hands to evenly coat and toss them into the oven for 30-40 min. Mix every 15 min or so. 

DONE! Enjoy 🙂 

Kid approved.
