Do you live and eat sustainably? The movie Cowspiracy claimed that on the same plot of land you can grow 350 lbs of meat (& associated resources) or 35 000 lbs of fruits & vegetables... #ThatsCrazy#EatMorePlants 🥦🍉🍋 Personally I am trying to #EatPlantBased for my health, for my kids, for the environment. I'm trying to be mindful of my consumption and my waste. It was a big change initially, to eat differently, but the changes have been SO worth it. It's true what they say, nothing tastes as good as healthy feels. I'm still not 100%. But I'm doing SO much better. I hope to meditate more on the animal side of things, to make me want to commit 100%. Someday I'll get there.
Be kind. Every day. Choose kindness.
We have no idea what mountain someone else is climbing, or where they are on their quest.
Some people seem so well put together, they seem to have their shit organized, happy face on, living the best life and taking numbers in the process.
Insert sleep deprived mama who was up for hours with a teething baby. A mama who walked and walked with said baby in the stroller to get her down for a nap, 4yo in tow complaining.
Now insert someone who did not choose kindness. Comments and actions can have a huge impact. I’m thankful that after a few tears I was able to compose myself and forgive. But what about those who hold on to those moments for too long, who don’t yet know the blessing of forgiveness? How could it impact their day/life?
To the lady at the desk who had no idea what was happening in my life, no idea what my mountain was today, I hope everyone shows you compassion when you’re climbing a mountain ⛰
Cozy best describes today. We have a busy weekend ahead, our nephews are here tonight and the kids are playing games and hanging out. I’m enjoying the fire and mindless flipping through magazines. .
Simplicity Challenge Day #5: decluttering toys. I don't know about you, but my house is filled with toys. Holidays and birthday parties for two kids over 4 years has turned my home into a playzone. Having toddlers means that every night I spent a good chunk of time cleaning up after them. So on this simplicity challenge I knew I had to do something about it. Are you ready to declutter mamas? Are you fed up with cleaning? Then read on: - Unload all the toys and take a look at what your kids are too old for or have lost interest in. Put it into a bin for donation. - if your kids are old enough, get your kids to choose 10 toys that they love to play with at the moment. And assign a place for each toy together. It's easier if you have an organizing unit with little storage bins, which you can label. This way you are teaching them language skills and how to organize at the same time. -Lastly, put other toys that your kids like in storage bins and swap out toys for other 10 next month. - Communicate to your family and friends (depending on your relationship) about how much your kids love the experiences as gifts. Science centre, the zoo etc. - When your kids get a new toy, tell them that they need to donate one of their old toys.
Im excited to see how this works. Anyone tried this before? I'd love to know how you maintain minimalism in your house when it comes to toys. Happy weekend 😀

Finally settled on a race outfit for tomorrow! Glad I picked up the funky @lululemonyeg pants before I came, because by the time I got into the #seawheeze specialty shop there wasn’t anything that really stuck out at me! Wasn’t going to bring a jacket but the weather in #yvr has been pretty crummy so I guess I’ll be tying it around my waist when I get hot! Looking forward to the race tomorrow! Spent the morning soaking in all things #Seawheeze and doing yoga with a couple hundred others! Looking forward to seeing some friends tonight, turning in early & getting a good night’s sleep! 💪🏼 Depending on the elements, I’m going for a new PB tomorrow!
