Did You Really Think We Vacationed That Much?

by healthyhitsthespot on October 31, 2014 · 5 comments

So, girls, you know all of those trips we’ve been taking to San Luis Obispo?

Well, today I can finally share why!

I’ve been waiting for this moment!


(Image not my own — grabbed from google images)

My Husband, Marco, has been applying for a job in SLO since June of this year. The process has finally come to an end, and he starts in several weeks.


The Schmidt’s are at it again. WE’RE MOVING. 

I’m considered a professional-mover by now, right? I should be getting paid for this.

Marco and I are moving our little family of two up to San Luis Obispo, California this November.

We’re going house hunting this Saturday.

Neither of us have ever left Ventura before, so although it’s only two hours away, this will be huge change for us.

We’re excited! I’ll be keeping you all updated along the way, of course!

I said yesterday that I was going to post Daily Eats today, but I had not idea I we were going to get this news. So, daily eats are coming next week. 

Enjoy your weekend!

Love, your Coach Paige

Good News To Share!

Good morning ladies!

It’s a really good day!

I got published over at MindBodyGreen!

5 Strategies To Avoid Mindless Snacking.

To show your support, you can: like, share, or tweet the article!

ginny from french strawberries blog

The next really awesome thing: a former client and now friend of mine, Ginny, started a blog! If you like my blog, you’ll enjoy Ginny’s blog too! She wrote about her experience with me in her story.

“The last piece of this puzzle is when I stumbled upon a blog a few years ago. It was called “Healthy Hits The Spot” and the writer was a girl named Paige who had a very similar story to myself. I remember reading her “about page” and being in tears because her story struck so close to home for me. Paige is a holistic health coach and works one-on-one with women to help them heal their relationships with food through intuitive eating. I followed her blog religiously for a year before I finally mustered up the courage to email her. After talking to her over the phone, I knew that the last piece of my puzzle was going to be working with her. I signed up for her 6-month program and I just finished my last month with her. If I could give one piece of advice for this whole entire blog it is to work with a holistic health coach! It has changed my life and I can honestly say that I have finally made peace with my body. Paige has taught me to listen to and trust my body, to let go of fears about gaining weight by recognizing that my only job is to treat my body well, and most importantly she has taught me that it is absolutely ok to enjoy food. She’s also my main inspiration for starting this blog!”

Next, November is upon us! Two days from now I’ll be accepting 5 more girls into my coaching program for the last time in 2014.

I would love to talk with you! Trust me when I say, now is a great time to start coaching

How to: Make Overnight Oats

Good morning ladies!

Today I’m going to share one simple recipe with you that will be able to make over and over.

Overnight Oats! A basic, good-tasting recipe that can be dressed up any way you’d like.

overnight oats ingredients

You’ll need: oats, milk, nut butter, your favorite small seed, banana (+ any other fruit you’d like), and a yummy spice.

In this recipe I used: 1/3 c. oats, 1/3 c. rice milk, 1 T. flaxseed meal, 1 T. peanut butter, 1/2 banana, and 1 t. cinnamon. So yummy!

overnight oats how to

Before bed, put everything in a lidded container, mix it up well with a spoon. Cover, and place in the fridge overnight.

What works well for Marco and I: I make dinner, we eat together, and then Marco does the dishes while I prep us overnight oats and help to put his lunch together. 

overnight oats eat cold

In the morning, add a splash more milk and with a rubber spatula (you can use a spoon, this just works so well) mix everything up. Enjoy your oats cold!

If you don’t like them cold, you can also warm them up for a more traditional oatmeal :)

Who is going to make ONO’s tonight?

Tip: this is a great breakfast when you’re a busy-bee in the mornings, and want to make the time to eat at home.

Meal Ideas for Your Week

by healthyhitsthespot on October 28, 2014 · 6 comments

Good morning to you all!

The rest of yesterday was great. After breakfast and blogging to you all from the hotel room we hung around SLO for a few more hours, drove back home, and then went over to my Mom & Dad’s. I took our laundry there this week because I didn’t want to be locked-down to our house while doing laundry. I wanted to see the parents! We ate dinner with them (chicken villa), watched football, and made some Birthday plans for the weekend :)

I mean… look at Noah… I walked him, cuddled with him, and played with him. Miss this little guy!

chicken rice and avocado

So, today I’m going to share Meal Ideas with you for the week. Over the weekend, I made tacos and I never got to share them since I blog Monday through Friday. So I’m going to do that here :)

First Meal that we’re going to (re)make this week will be chicken, brown rice, broccoli, tamari, and avocado.

tacos homemade hard shell

The next will be homemade hardshell beef tacos. I’ll need to buy soft corn tortillas (I’ll fry them myself in small pan with a thin layer of hot grapeseed oil — lightly fry each side, then fold, fry shortly, then move to a plate with a paper towel to let some oil soak up), organic beef, romaine lettuce, bell pepper, onions, salsa, taco seasoning, and avo (this time — didn’t have it last time).

leftover beef into dinner tacos

Then, we’ll make leftover breakfast tacos with the remaining taco meat! Soft corn tortillas, eggs, leftover taco meat, spinach, and fresh salsa on top. This was sooo good when we had it on Saturday. I will say though, I had to wait until my savory tastebuds kicked in to eat this — It was a good Saturday food for around 9:00.

You know what I’m bringing back this week for breakfast?

That’s right! Overnight Oats! I’ve been craving them! Recipe tomorrow :)

The last thing we’re going to make this week is still undecided… I’ll talk with the Husb this morning over breakfast before I head out to TJ’s. Usually, I go on Sunday, but since we’ve been traveling, it’s been Tuesdays! One thing I know for sure is that Friday we’re having home-made pizza with the family for Halloween and Sunday we’re going out to dinner for mine and my sister-n-law’s Birthday. Family filled weekend :)

When In San Luis Obispo with My Husband

by healthyhitsthespot on October 27, 2014 · 2 comments

Good morning all :)

Marco and I came back up to San Luis Obispo this weekend, so I’m here to share some photos with you.

mountain brook church slo

Sunday morning we left home at 8:30 and landed at Mountain Brook Church for the second service at 11:00. We started off our day with eggs & corn tortilla’s as usual :) I sipped my morning coffee on the road.

Check out this beautiful view from the Church. Everyone sits looking at the stage, and to both sides of the room you have this view of rolling hills. I love it!

so cal urbane cafe slo

For lunch, we went to Urbane Cafe. I ordered the same as Marco, the So-Cal Sandwich. This sandwich has chipotle mayo, green salsa, chicken, avocado, pepper-jack cheese, and lettuce. It comes with a side salad with mandarin oranges, balsamic, and feta.

jacuzzi apple farm

Next, we checked into our room. The first thing I did was run out back to check-out our private hot tub. We had one in our room during our Honeymoon and loved it.

We relaxed in the room for a while once we checked-in. Marco napped and I worked on my Bible Study. Once it hit 4:00 and the boy was still sleeping, I had to get up and do something. So, I drove around town, mostly through neighborhoods I haven’t seen yet. I love the homes up here, they’ve all got so much personality.

mexican food slo

I went back to the Apple Farm around 5:00 to wake up M. After he was up, we walked down the street to dinner at Pepe Delgado’s for Mexican Food.

I ordered exactly what sounded good — a bean tostada, chile relleno, rice and beans. I only ate about 1/3 of this plate because it was so quickly filling. Heavy food = I’m full super fast.

After din-din we walked around town for a while.

To end the night, we went in the hot-tub. So here’s a great, messy-hair jacuzzi appropriate selfie for ya :)

splash cafe eggs and bacon

This morning we woke up and relaxed for a bit before heading out to breakfast. We walked to Splash Cafe and both ordered the simple eggs and bacon. This is probably my favorite breakfast to get in SLO. With a soy capp on the side of course.

Now, I’m laying in bed finishing up my capp writing to you all.

We’ll be heading out around 12:00 today. I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve gotten to spend time with me mama and dad… so once we get home I’m going to head to their house and hangout while M works on some things with his grandpa. It’s been busy being gone nearly every weekend.

Next weekend (Nov 3) is my Birthday, so who knows! Will we be in town? Or out of town?

Friday is Halloween, so I’m definitely looking forward to some great family time then. I love trick-or-treating with my baby cousins, seeing them dressed up. I remember trick-or-treating in my parents neighborhood like it was yesterday.

I hope you all enjoy your day!

Love, your Coach Paige
