Officially Paige Schmidt

Good morning all!

I hope you slept well last night. For some reason, it was a toss & turn night for me. I felt like I took little naps all night long.

Luckily, I got to wake up early and go for a refreshing walk with my friend Aubrey this morning.


Yesterdays breakfast was two eggs, one bacon, and one piece of brown rice bread. The bacon was a little too fatty for my liking, so I gave it to the Hubs. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about eating fat, but I like my bacon crispy :)

Yesterday I officially became Paige Schmidt. Did you already see that on my Instagram? The DMV thankfully only took 20 minutes!


For lunch I had a homemade cobb-style salad. Yum, so so good! Romaine lettuce, tomato, bell pepper, cucumber, two hard boiled eggs (was satisfied with one), gorgonzola, one sliced crispy bacon strip, hummus, and cilantro dressing.


Throughout the work day I did laundry. We’ve been gone most Sundays recently, so the laundry carried over into the week.

Paige's Favorite Green Smoothie

Between lunch and dinner I made a “Paige’s Favorite Green Smoothie” with raw cacao added.

Dinner was leftover shrimp stir-fry and homemade fried rice. So yummy!

After dinner I curled up on the couch with Marco, enjoyed this apple, and watched about a boy.

Laguna Beach, Manhattan Beach, San Luis Obispo

Good morning ladies!

This weekend has been so full. It’s been good. 

I’ve just learned in the book that I am reading, Soul Keeping, that there is a difference between busy and hurried.  According to my book, busy is: a full schedule; many activities; an outward condition; physically demanding; reminds me I need God. On the other hand, hurried is: preoccupied; unable to be fully present; an inner condition of the soul; spiritually draining; causes me to be unavailable to God.

Wow, I just loved this! I am absolutely in a busy season, but this busy season has brought me joy, a sense of great fulfillment, and has absolutely reminded me that I need God. In fact, that is how I start each busy day: with God, asking him to help me arrange my time..

All that said, allow me to share with you my full weekend (F-M).


Eat Healthy Eating Out

Friday morning I had my regular coffee date with friends at 6:15. I came home afterwards, worked a little while, and then headed out for Laguna Beach. I met my friend Simi for the first time Friday. We met through our blogs, and have developed such a sweet friendship.

For lunch, we went to La Sirena Grill in Laguna Beach with a group of her friends. We both ordered the Wild Salmon Salad. It was delicious. After lunch we grabbed coffee and walked/talked on the beach. It was such a nice time!

Homemade Dinner with Friends

After my time with Sim in Laguna, I made the drive to Manhattan Beach to have dinner at my friend Maria’s. She made me her amazing Polenta Pizza and we talked well into the evening. Maria and I could sit and talk for hours, it is always so sweet and fulfilling getting to see her!


I didn’t actually take photos Saturday, but it was a great day! I woke up, went to book Group (where we are reading Soul Keeping) and then came home to hang with my Hubby. We ate lunch at home together, went shopping for a bit (I got these new Skimmers!), and then landed at our friends house for a BBQ. There, I tried my first Angry Orchard Hard Cider (yum!) and had some great girl time. We went downtown Ventura afterward, grabbed a drink, and called it a night around 11.


Church San Luis Obispo

Sunday we woke up bright and early (7:30) and hit the road for San Luis Obispo. We arrived there at 11:00, just in time to attend Church at Mountain Brook. We loved this service! Eek, so happy about this :) This photo is from their photo library.

(Listen to this service here: TRUTH #3: PERSEVERE THROUGH THE TESTS)

Urbane Cafe Salad

For lunch, we went to Urbane Cafe where I ordered the Urbane Cafe Salad with Balsamic.

Apple Farm Rooms

After lunch, we checked into our room at the Apple Farm. SO cute!

Shower at the Apple Farm

We relaxed and watched football for a bit, and the hubby fell asleep. I went exploring our room (we hadn’t stayed in this one yet) and just HAD to get a photo of this crazy shower for the blog. Haha!

Paige Schmidt, HC

I literally sat on the shower floor to take this photo. Proof ;)

Fig Burger at Eureka

When the Hubby woke up we walked around Downtown and landed at Eureka! for dinner. I ordered a fig Burger. Oh me, oh my! Fig with goat cheese & meat. Heaven. This baby was piled high with arugula, too. So good!


Blueberry Scone

Monday we woke up around 9:00 and cozied around in bed until 10:00. I finished the last of my Bible Study and M watched a morning TV show. He loves to watch TV on vacation because we don’t have TV at home :)

After I dropped M off (appointment) I went to Starbucks to work for a few hours. I got exactly what my body wanted. A blueberry scone with black coffee. I ate this first before starting work with no distractions (just like I eat my other meals).

Work from Anywhere

After my scone I got to work. Still had lot’s o’ coffee left :)

Numbers Daily Schedule

I just have to show you this… Ah! Remember my Calendar I showed you a few days ago? A Client made one for herself while she planned a special “stay cation”! She shared this with me. So pretty!

By the way, so many of you asked. I used Numbers for Apple. Basically, it’s the Apple version of Excel. They have a pre-made template for “Daily Schedule.” 

Burrito Bowl

When Marco was done with his appointment, we grabbed lunch at Chipotle before driving home. I got a burrito bowl with brown rice, black beans, veggies, lettuce, pico de gallo, and guacamole. I also shared a few chips & guac with my Husband.

Bible Study Group

Upon arriving back in Ventura (3 hours after lunch) M dropped me off at my Bible Study.

Bible Study Snacks

Snacks of the night were chips/crackers & dip. I had a few of each.

Dinner at Home

We didn’t eat dinner until 8:00, but it was perfect timing since our entire eating schedule was a little late yesterday :)

I made us shrimp stir-fry with homemade fried rice and sautéed cabbage. So yummy!


To end the night, a sweet crispy apple while cuddled up on the couch watching “About A Boy” with my Hubby. This is on Netflix, and is incredibly cute!

Stay with me through the week as I update you on more new happenings!

Love, your Coach Paige

I adored each one of my Bridesmaids. I wanted them to have fun and enjoy my big day with me, so I didn’t overwhelm them with tasks. At the same time, when I needed help I wasn’t afraid to ask for help.

Daily Eats + Dinner with Friends

by healthyhitsthespot on October 16, 2014 · 0 comments

Good morning friends!

Yesterday started with a walk in the park at 5:30 with my friend Aubrey.

corn tortillas and eggs with salsa

Breakfast was around 6:45. It was corn tortilla’s and eggs with salsa. This has become my new eggs & toast, if you couldn’t tell ;)

brown rice toast with nut butter and banana

Around 10 I was hungry for something else. I made two pieces of brown rice toast with nut butter and banana. I couldn’t choose between PB or Almond B, so I had one of each.

As small as this may be, it really does feel so great to listen to your cravings. Today, will you remember to say “yes” to your cravings in this way? Picture for a moment what it might be like to do this and then carry it through your day.

keep flowers in your office

After my mid-morning snack I continued work. On my desk, I try and keep flowers. Each time I grocery shop I buy a new $3.99 bouquet of flowers. I usually pick a couple from my last bouquet that are still good, cut the ends off, and make a little office bouquet :)

chamomile tea

I also sipped quite a bit of tea through the day. This was pear green tea from TeaLeaves. Throughout the rest of the day, I chose chamomile. Keeps me calm while working :)

variety in your lunch

Lunch was around 1:45. Lunch was another fun meal for me because I really asked myself “what do you want?”

Do you remember to do this daily?

I ended up with “Power to the Greens” salad mix, sliced cucumber, sliced bell pepper, cilantro dressing, and then off to the side more cucumber with hummus. I also put one scoop of warmed leftover pasta right on top. This has such variety that it satisfied me well into dinner time.

peanut butter and apple

At about 5:30 Marco and I went to my parents house to hangout for a bit before we went to our friend Aubrey’s for dinner. I snacked on a small Organic apple with peanut butter to calm my hunger (I started getting pretty hungry at this point).

homemade dinner at a friends house enchiladas, rice, and beans

Dinner was around 7:00 and was homemade enchiladas, rice, and beans. It was delicious! After dinner we found ourselves playing board games (checkers + battle of the sexes) and hangin’ out chatting until about 9:00.

It was a good day :)

Today is a busy workday, which is always good. I’m starting the morning off with breakfast with Marco, a walk with Momma, and then coming home to get ready for work. Tonight, we’ve got group straight after work.

Tomorrow, I will not be here on the blog, but I will be in your inbox sharing something you might not want to miss ;)

Follow Marco and I through the weekend VIA Instagram (@healthyhitsthespot) if you’d like to stay in touch. We’ll be back in San Luis Obispo  ;)

Love, your Coach Paige

The Schedule of a Health Coach

by healthyhitsthespot on October 15, 2014 · 6 comments

Good morning all!

So, many of you have asked: what is your schedule like as a Health Coach? So today I am going to share with you!

My Daily Schedule (click for print-out PDF Version).

schedule of a health coach

My schedule changes from time to time depending on what season I’m in. Right now, this is my exact schedule.

Currently filling my time: walking, work, and good groups + lots of free space to plan whatever means the most to me.

Meal times are estimated, but usually go as planned because of my schedule. My bed time lands somewhere in the 9:00 hour. I read before bed, so it’s usually about 9:30/9:45.

Now, even though I have this schedule, I still take the time to plan my next day & close up shop each night when I am ending work. This helps me to leave work at work. When I know my plan for the next day there’s nothing left to think about for the night. I can just enjoy my free time.

If you’re interested in being a Health Coach yourself, IIN is holding their last enrollment for 2014. Enrollment ends Monday the 20th. Email me and I can get you a great deal through the 17th. I have the payment plans in my hands here, so I’m happy to share them with you! If IIN is something you’ve been considering, feel free to write me. I’d love to help answer any questions you have about the school.

If you’re interested in being Coached, I have one opening for the month of October left. After the opening is filled (could be by the end of today) I will start a list for November. I will be accepting five women for November 2014. November will likely be my last opening until 2015. 

Claim my last free Consultation for October here.

Put your name on my November list here.

dried mango snack

Now for the rest of my eats from yesterday. Before running errands for work: some dried mango slices.

paiges favorite green smoothie

Hold me over until dinner snack: “Paige’s Favorite Green Smoothie.”

gluten free pesto pasta and salad

Dinner: gluten free brown rice pasta with broccoli and pesto + side salad with Power to the Greens blend, cucumber, bell pepper, and shredded carrots with cilantro dressing. Yum! So good :) I think I’ll be having this for lunch again today.

To end, what else would you like to know about being a Health Coach?

Love, your Coach Paige
