swannsoirees Ran the #DisneylandHalfMarathon today with the love of my life. His first race, my hardest one yet (even though I've done it before)... The challenge? Stress... its a real thing folks & it affects everything in life when you least expect it... Not long after this photo I suffered two anxiety attacks & temporary blindness. I had so much on my mind...I work daily to manage my load; family, work, school, training, running a business, volunteer work, etc. But sometimes it's just not enough then you throw-in physical challenges like this. Regardless of training, I really need to remeber to slow down & recharge. Thank god for him being by my side. He always makes everything better... 4h

swannsoirees Epically failed dinner yesterday = no leftovers for today = scavenge fridge to sort out brekky.
I was tired, frustrated, and didn't feel like there was anything in the fridge. My rotator cuff is killing me too, I can barely move on one side. YET I managed to put this together. WE ARE OUR OWN WORST HURDLES... You CAN OVERCOME. Take a deep breath as ask yourself "HOW?"- how do I resolve this? Change this? Fix this? Overcome this? | yes, this is largely a first world problem, but that's not what I'm addressing... I'm addressing the fact that I almost let my emotions take over my day rather than exercising my ability to take baby steps and own my day. Go forth and conquer people!! | #healthcoach #swannsoirees #foodasfuel #emotionaleating #paleo @truepasturebeef #organicproduce

  •   msofebrown @swannsoirees Thank you for the inspiration Brenda! I was just saying that on Tuesday, baby steps one day at a time & conquer one thing at a time one day at a time! xoxo, thanks again! 4d

swannsoirees I screwed up dinner tonight so I had to improv... ALL THE VEGGIES from the fridge with coconut aminos & red boat fish sauce. Boom. Saved! | #vegetarian #paleo #fitfam #homecook #healthcoach #vegan #eatyourveggies #organicproduce 4d
  •   swannsoirees PS- broccoli, carrots, red pepper, garlic, ginger, green onions, bok choy. 4d
  •   bronsonpate Aminos? Never heard of em. What is that @swannsoirees ? 4d
  •   swannsoirees @bronsonpate it's fermented sap from the coconut flower, it mimics the flavor & consistency of soy sauce... So for those who don't eat soy (allergies or choice), this is an alternative. I have no scientific backing but as I understand it, the coconut aminos also have C & B vitamins. 4d
  •   swannsoirees @bronsonpate PS- this is different than the readily available "liquid aminos" that are derived from soy & are meant to be a liquid source of protein. 4d
  •   bronsonpate Fascinating! Thanks! 4d

swannsoirees For tonight's dinner- balsamic braised @truepasturebeef's short ribs, baked carrots w/ currants, and steamed broccoli. It doesn't have to be fancy to be healthy or good for you. | #grassfed #grassfinished #beef #organicproduce #paleo #homecook #healthcoach #realfood 1w

swannsoirees So which of these says "Kick-Ass Wedding Planner and Caring Holistic Health Practitioner"- hhmmm... Believe it when I say I don't like this part if the business... A picture sometimes is not enough to depict your strengths & what you're passionate about.... #weddingplanner #healthcoach photos by @ederphoto. Can I just go to #australia right now and no think about any of this? 3w
