Sometimes one good friend holds the same power as an entire tribe. Don't you love it when God brings incredible people in your life? I always thought having more friends would show that I was popular or well-liked. But fewer, AMAZING friends are far more valuable. Thank you, @bestinblogs for being such a great listener, laugher and donut sharer. You are treasured!! Tag your bestie, a loyal friend or someone you can't do life without--and THANK them!! A little random acknowledgment and appreciation makes a great impact. Love you, Britt! • • #girltalk #girltalknetwork #bites #bitesdonutsaz #donuts #friendship #tribe #womenempoweringwomen
But really... 😫 --- Side note.. there was a time in my life I ate this few calories (back at the turn of the century, y2k, when I didn't know any better). Turns out, staying TOO LOW in calories will severely damage your metabolism and demolish your lean muscle tissue . Be sure to eat enough to fuel your body and allow it to let go of what it's hanging onto.. otherwise, your body will STORE fat for energy or start to eat at your muscle for fuel. No bueno.
Our little man turned 2 today.. and unlike his older sister who has had an over-the-top Pinterest style birthday bash every year.. this one was lucky to get a donut.. and maybe candle to blow out. #secondchild (tell me I'm not alone in this!!) Regardless, this boy is so deeply loved and completely melts our hearts.. mischief and all. #mrfoxpearson

Turning 53 today isn't as bad as I thought. I don't feel a day over 35! 🎉 • Thanks for the balloons @katelinsimons!! The gold 5 popped, so we had to go mixed metals 😂
Whatever you do.. donut let go 🍩 --- An after school treat that I say was for the kids but it was more for me. #realtalk --- And for the nerdy food talk, the buttermilk bar I devoured today (hello, new favorite) was roughly the SAME macro breakdown (60c/17f) as •a bagel+cream cheese OR •1/2 cup oatmeal, 2 slices of toast and 1/2 of an avocado OR •2 cups of Cheerios and 2 cups of whole milk OR •2 bananas and a serving of peanut butter --- The moral of the story is.. feel free to be FLEXY with your choices.. just stay within the boundaries! That's the glory of understanding macros and guilt-free eating!
Some things never change 😂My mom is my biggest influencer and cheerleader in life.. and by far, my favorite person to laugh with! Thanks for teaching me how to laugh so big you can see deep into our souls. I ❤️you @kerrymcginty (my fave photo captured of us 13 years ago)
Nailed it. She likes to eat macros 🙌🏼 #mothersday
RIP amazing Phoenix weather.. you were lovely while you lasted. ☀️ --- When temps rise, so do I.. out of my cozy, happy place (my bed) to get an early morning workout. But anything that can slightly improve my parenting skills is good for me. When I take care of myself before the kids wake, I am more energetic and pleasant.. otherwise, I act irritated like *they* are reasons I can't get anything done or ever get ahead in life 😂 I'm not a morning person, but the sacrifice is worth it for the boost of joy through simple accomplishments 👍🏼 --- Thanks for coming over for the early workout 🏋🏽♀️and pancakes 🥞 @tashabadder!!! ❤️
Today's photoshoot for @lululemon was SO MUCH FUN!! Thanks to @taaylorbsimmons and @alexialawson showing up with Starbucks in hand, @tayylor.hanson being my right hand cheerleader and @brianclay--the creative mastermind behind the camera.. it was a success!! I am so thankful for my coach @kellimichellemacroscoach for getting me prepared and @bzbronze for giving me the tan I needed to give me that little extra boost of confidence I needed to wear these shorts!! 😂 It was an unforgettable day!! • • • #lululemon #lululemonambassador #foodblogger #nutrition #macros #crossfit #kitchen #photoshoot #thesweatlife
