Hey you guys!
First off, I wanna say THANK YOU to everyone who left kind words on this almost 30 min vlog I uploaded to YouTube!
I was scared that there was going to be major backlash, so I prepared my mind for it. To my surprise however, I didn’t see any of the kind of hate I was receiving on my day 1 announcement. So weird, huh? Where did the haters go???
It was sooooo lovely to read all of your comments saying how much you were proud of me and how much my journey inspired you to start your own! This wasn’t my intention, but I am so happy that my personal journey has fired something up inside of you.
If any of you are about to embark on your own 90 day journey, make sure you grab a copy of my 12 Week Fit Journal! Great news is, the POPFLEX BLACK FRIDAY SALE is happening right now and the ENTIRE STORE is 40% OFF! AHHHHHHHHH!!!! (Minus the 2020 Planner stationery) Just use code “GIMME40” at popflexactive.com and throw in a yoga mat or two while you’re at it :P
Alright, now I wanna do a lil weekend recap because seriously this weekend was one of the most relaxing and therapeutic weekends I’ve had in a LOOOONGGGGG time. I got a deep tissue massage, I bought fresh flowers, went shopping for stockings and dog clothes, made myself some matcha oat milk tea, cleaned, baked, and prepped the house for Thanksgiving. Okay, okay I know that doesn’t sound traditionally relaxing – but any time I get to do things that are NOT work, it’s relaxing :)
Oh and I got this new fuzzy hoodie and shorts set that are my current FAVE. Absolute perfection with my matcha, my avo socks, Sir George in a cable knit sweater, and reading your comments on YouTube. Your words made me smile the whole time.
A cart full of flowers at Trader Joes right after the gym.
Have I ever told you that my ideal morning is working out, then groceries at a farmer’s market or Trader Joes/Whole Foods and then cooking breakfast for me and Sam? I did that. And I LOVED every single second of it. Best part was – Sam went to weight lift with me too! :)
As soon as we got home from Trader Joe’s, I was inspired to make this boba shop level drink for Sam! I’ve been trying to make healthier swaps for him that don’t taste like substitutions. If Sam approves, then I know it will taste good for the masses. Sometimes my weird creations are like “healthy people good” but not “normal people good” if you know what I mean! The bottom is strawberry preserves, the middle is oat milk, and the top is matcha. Sam actually said it tasted like the REAL THING!!!! VICTORY!!!!!
Since Thanksgiving is this Thursday, and we also have a Blogifam Friendsgiving on Wednesday, I needed to test out some pumpkin pie recipes to ensure “fool proofness”.
I tried making a vegan crustless pumpkin pie. Started out all good, but then…
Literally no idea!!!! It was such a disaster. This is why I don’t normally bake! I am more of a sautéer and a boiler!
And the worst part was, it didn’t even taste good. It was so salty! So I took the warm pumpkin pie filling and mixed it in with cream cheese to make a frosting for a cupcake I will try baking later on. That tasted much better. Will keep ya posted on what happens to this.
Finally, I know we’re in the thick of Fall, but I had to slip on a new bikini and appreciate how hard my body has been working! So here’s a shameless cheetah print bikini mirror selfie.
CUZ WHY NOT. (Hi George)
