Happy Monday out there!! I’m pumped and ready for another week of great workouts, new skills and feeling like I’m creating the best version of myself. Have you checked in with yourself this month yet? There are only 10 more days of January so right this very minute is the best time to check in and ask yourself a few questions –

  • Are you feeling good every morning?
  • Are you seeing results from your clean eating and working out?
  • Is this new lifestyle you’ve taken on this month something you can stick with longterm?

Hopefully you’re saying yes to every single one of these questions because if you are not, maybe something needs to change. For me, this month was all about happiness and confidence. And with a few changes like cutting out sugar and alcohol and changing up my fitness schedule, I’ve been able to wake up every day this month and say yes to all three of those questions above. And just last month, in 2018, that was NOT the case. Remember to analyze and assess your goals and how you are feeling, because if something is not lining up, it may be time for a change. Time for a mindset change, a change in your diet, a change in your relationships, a change in your workouts. You deserve to be happy and feel your best every single day…so what’s holding you back? Truly think about it.

Now before I let you go and chat about what workouts I did last week that totally kicked my butt, I gotta tell you about something I’m so excited about! I’ve been nominated for the 2nd Annual LIKEtoKNOW.it Awards! There are 5 categories – Fashion, Beauty, Home, Family and FITNESS! And I’ve a nominee in the fitness category! There are 9 other amazing women in the category with me and I feel so lucky to even be nominated. And right now they are taking votes until January 31st and I would absolutely love it if you could vote! And if you want to vote for me, I would be absolutely honored! I’ve spent the last 10 years devoting myself to changing my life through clean eating and fitness and hopefully doing the same for others through this blog. And I feel so lucky to have LIKEtoKNOW.it notice that, since they are a company I work so closely with. You can vote here! Thank you for your support!!

PaleOMG What I Ate in a Day

Once I woke up, I started my day off how I always do – with coffee at 6am. I made a hot cup of nespresso with a tablespoon or so of heavy cream, some liquid stevia and a heaping tablespoon of collagen.

For a pre-workout snack, I had a slice of sweet potato with peanut butter and raspberry jam on top.

For a post-workout lunch, I had vegetable curry at Just Be Kitchen with a grain-free tortilla then some grain-free (nuts, coconut and dates) granola with coconut milk.

Later on for a snack, I had a small container of leftover cauliflower gnocchi in marinara sauce.

For dinner, I had leftover curry I made the night before with yellow curry paste, coconut milk, rice noodles, carrots, kale, chicken thighs and cilantro.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Hi Juli! As always thanks for the great posts! Two questions, and I apologize if you have mentioned these on social media but I’m not on those platforms. Did everything work out with Jackson’s Nationwide insurance? I am looking into getting insurance, especially hearing your story and my sisters dogs stomach flipped and they had to do emergency surgery. Also, I look forward to a post about your current skin care products. I know on the podcast you mentioned trying new products inside of the Retinol A because it can thin the skin.

    Thanks again!

    1. well we JUST finished with all the finances so i am finishing up the claim to send in to nationwide, so i don’t have an answer for you quite yet! and i’ll definitely do a skincare post soon!

  2. Love these types of posts! Always gives me so much inspiration for a new workout! I was wondering what type of workout/resistance bands you use? I’ve been wanting to get a long set and the mini ones (the ones that go around your thighs) and wanted to know your input!! Thanks in advance!
