Ventura + the Crazy Storm We Hit Driving Home

by healthyhitsthespot on March 3, 2015 · 2 comments

Good-morning all!

There was no post yesterday because I was traveling home from Ventura. Ah, we had such a nice, relaxing weekend with the family.


We packed up to be in Ventura from last Wednesday to yesterday afternoon. This is only my half of the suitcase :) The Hubby added in his things too. I’m a lighter packer than he is ;)

dads cooking

While we were there… I got to enjoy so many things about home. First, Dad’s cooking!

work from anywhere

I got to work standing up (thank you Lord!) from the parents bar. It’s no fun sitting all day!

drink out of favorite mug

I got to drink out of my Dad’s old-school mug (his name is Terry). I just love this mug.

it was me all along

I got to read sitting right next to Grandma in the living room.

mom made breakfast

I got to enjoy Mom’s SO GOOD breakfasts. Now, SHE is the queen of the perfect eggs. Ha!


I got to get ready to celebrate my soon-to-be-neice! I’m going to be an auntie!

aloha steakhouse side salad

Saturday, we celebrated my Seester and her soon-to-be-Sofia. We had her shower at Aloha Steakhouse in Ventura. Yum! So good.

I started my meal with a side salad w/ bleu cheese.

For lunch I got blackened (spicy!) white roughy with wild rice.

We drank champagne.

paige and jinna baby shower

Here is me & my Seester Jinna. I’m lucky my Brother married her almost 12 years ago. I’ve got a sister now just like I’ve always wanted! It was such a sweet shower. My Mom did a GREAT job!

I took a ton of photos, so now I’m in charge of sending them out ;) Gotta get to it this weekend!

double rainbow

On Sunday evening we had a double rainbow in Ventura! Can you see the double?

storm in california

On our way home Monday… we hit the craziest storm I’ve ever driven through in CA. It was hailing so hard under those clouds that a layer of snow formed on the freeway! We could hardly see & the freeway slowed waaaaaaaay down. Us Californian’s don’t know how to handle that ;) Mix in lightening and you’ve got yourself a storm that I would have so enjoyed being INSIDE of the house… not driving through it! Ha!

firestone in san luis obispo cobb salad

For lunch, Marco and I went to Firestone in San Luis Obispo. Luckily, the storm stopped before SLO. I got the steak cobb salad. How crazy amazing does that look? It was SO good!

healthy hits the spot slo | new times

While walking to Firestone I stopped by to grab a New Times Paper (free Magazine in SLO) to check out the ad space I purchased inside. We’ll see if this does good! My desire is to meet more women in this area for coaching :)


Don’t forget, ladies! Sign-up for Girl Talk this week! We’ve got 100 of you on the list so far, and we’re open to about 50 more! Invite your Girl Friends :) Text them this ( link & the photo if you’d like. We can’t wait to have you!

Girl Talk Call – Your Biggest Struggles {RSVP|ASAP}

by healthyhitsthespot on February 27, 2015 · 6 comments



You girls have heard me say time & time again that my main goal through Healthy Hits the Spot is to create relationships with you (my readers), right?

I’ve got to say… this goal has turned out to be the BEST.

Through this vision, I’ve met 100% of my Clients, & my dear, sweet partner, Simi. 

Some of you know Simi as one of The Micro Harvest bloggers (Sim & Tim).

Since meeting, Simi & I have become SO close! Do you girls want to hear the story of how we became friends/partners?

In short… Simi emailed me & asked to chat on the phone. We did. And after that, we moved on to coaching one another for 6 months (mostly having fun chatting! Hehe). I talked to Sim about intuitive eating & she talked to me about marriage (I was planning my wedding, and she was already married). Fast forward about 5 months. I called Sim & asked if she wanted to be my partner. I adored her, and I wanted to work with her on something BIG! She said YES, and we agreed to chat one-week from that day and share our ideas. 

I’m not joking when I say our ideas were *IDENTICAL.*

Even down to the order that we wrote them in! 

That day, FINALLY FREE began. We worked on her for 4 months, talking weekly by phone. I flew to OHIO to film her in the beginning of 2015. Since January, she’s been with developers, web designers, and is coming to life BEAUTIFULLY! In March, she will be available FOR YOU!


finally free program


Simi & Paige

So, we decided on a *free* LIVE Q+A call.

& we’re serious when we say we promise you’ll have fun with us! :-D



On this call, Simi & I will be talking about overcoming the most common struggles related to women. We asked YOU what those struggles were. In Girl Talk, our *FREE* LIVE call, we are sharing our answers to your top struggles/questions related to relationships, diet, hormones, & lifestyle.


We really want you to be there. We don’t want a single thing to hold you back.



Sunday. March 8, 2015.

1:00 PST // 4:00 EST.


Oh, and don’t worry! If you sign-up & can’t make it YOU’RE STILL going to get our free handout emailed to you right after the call with ALL of the Q+A’s! Not to worry. You won’t miss a thing! We’ve got you.




We can’t wait to chat with you!

Here’s what you’ll need on our special call:

  • like I said, we’ll be sending you pretty notes after the call (in case you sign-up & then can’t make it), but if you still want to take your own notes, grab a journal & pen.
  • you’ll need a warm & cozy drink (coffee/tea/hot cocoa with a marshmallow on top!)
  • a blanket to cuddle up with (preferably a “fuzzy,” as I call them)
  • a quiet space where you can listen, reflect, and relate (& have some great girl time!)

After the call, we’ll send out notes to EVERYONE on our Girl Talk list.


In this call, me & Sim are going to get super personal with you. You’re our girls! Don’t miss this heart to heart. We want to connect with you.

xo, your Coach



Simple & Spicy Breakfast Burrito – Details!

by healthyhitsthespot on February 26, 2015 · 3 comments

Did you see this on my instagram last Sunday?

I promised I’d share the recipe with you. So, here you go :)!

whole wheat breakfast burrito

This is one of the first foods in A LONG TIME that was shopped for completely at Whole Foods & not Trader Joe’s.

healthy breakfast burrito

You see, the thing is… Marco loves ranch dressing. We buy him the Organic one from Whole Foods. Every once in a while, when we run out, I have to do two grocery trips. One to Whole Foods (I get Apline Valley bread here, too!) & another to TJ’s.

This weekend, I said forget it, let’s JUST go to Whole Foods. It wasn’t bad actually! Didn’t break the bank… and I even got to order our meat right from the butcher. Actually, this week I’ve been feeling that I have appreciated my food even more! It’s felt extra special being from WF :) Silly?

spicy breakfast burrito

So, your ingredients for this breakfast burrito (mine from Whole Foods):

  • whole wheat tortillas (small in size)
  • Kerrygold butter (unsalted)
  • eggs
  • jalapeños
  • cilantro
  • green onion
  • tomato’s
  • sour cream (Strauss Farm)
  • green tomatillo salsa
  • cheddar/jack cheese blend

breakfast burrito recipe

In a pan, melt a tsp. or two of Kerrygold butter. Add sliced jalapeños, green onions, and diced tomato. Scramble together until eggs are cooked through. Sprinkle a bit of cheese on the eggs. While that’s melting, warm your whole wheat tortilla on the stove. Set it on a plate, add your eggs, & top with cilantro, tomatillo salsa, and high-quality sour cream. Fold into a burrito & enjoy!

Serious heaven :).

So choose something & talk (comment) to me:

  • are you going to make this recipe?
  • can you believe I stepped away from eggs & toast to make this? Hehe.
  • what is your favorite breakfast burrito combo?
  • do you feel like your food is more special when you spend more money on it?

I hope you enjoy your Thursday!

Before you go. I need you to do ONE thing. 

Write a note to yourself to CHECK your email (sign-up) tomorrow morning. I’m sharing something exciting with Simi & I really want you to see it :)!

Good-morning girls!

It’s Wednesday, you’re halfway through your workweek, and I’ve got a pick-me-up to share with you.

golden girl granola 3

Last week, I received a special package from Golden Girl Granola. They sent me free ‘nola, without even asking if I’d review. Of course, I can’t NOT review this because you girls need to know about it.

golden girl granola 2

Now, I’m all-about mostly-about homemade food… but sometimes… I just don’t want to use my time cooking every-single-thing from scratch. So when I find great, already made go-to’s, I’m happy!

I’ve been eating this granola for breakfast, dessert, &/or just a hold-me-over until dinner on a long workday (I like doing this with my Green Smoothie, too!). It always leaves me feeling satisfied, & I don’t need much! My favorite way to have it is in a coffee mug half-full with whole milk… Yum!

I asked to try 4-flavors.

golden girl granola 8

If you like blueberries & a little bit of “chew” to your ‘nola. YES.

golden girl granola 7

If you like it sweet (without all the added sugar). YES!

I love making a smoothie in a mug (2 bananas, 1 cup blueberries, 2-3 cups spinach, 3/4 cup plain greek yogurt, about 1/2 cup NON-GMO soy milk, + 2 T. flaxseed – serves 2!) & sprinkling this honey nola right on top! SO good!

smoothie in a bowl

Tip when using less liquid – first blend the banana, spinach, and soy milk. Then add in the frozen blueberries. Then the yogurt. Then the flaxseed :)

golden girl granola 9

If you like a much better version of Honey Bunches of Oats. YES! (YES! YES! YES!)

golden girl granola 6

If you like it simple (and like Almond Joy – that’s what this reminded me of…!). YES! Add a few dark chocolate chips :).

Not a single one let me down. The Maple is my favorite, and I will definitely be a regular customer!

Now, to get one of you started, I asked if I could hold a Giveaway, and they said YES!

The winner will get not one… but FOUR full bags of granola! Girls, this is amazing!!

*Take the time to do this loop! It will be worth it!*

So, in order for me to let you win, you’ve got to do a little loop around:  

  1. ‘LIKE’ Golden Girl Granola on Facebook & ‘Follow‘ then on Twitter
  2. ‘LIKE’ Healthy Hits the Spot on Facebook & ‘Follow‘ me on Twitter
  3. Sign-up for the Healthy Hits the Spot Newsletter
  4. Comment below & let me know you completed all three :) (Note, if you do not have either a twitter or FB, I still want you to enter! Complete what you can, and let me know in the comments what you were able to do – just be honest, please). 

That’s it! Once your loop is done, you’re automatically entered & I’ll be announcing the winner in *Friday’s Newsletter* (so make sure you check-it!). 

If you want to buy the ‘nola &/or see the other flavors you can do that here.

Enjoy today! And good-luck with the Giveaway!

Up Close & Personal – My #GirlBoss Vision Board

by healthyhitsthespot on February 24, 2015 · 10 comments

So, admittedly… I haven’t read #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso, but it’s on my next reads list!


I mean… look at these #GirlBoss Quotes on Google (& then come right back to finish reading this).

I’ve peaked through the pages in Barnes & Nobles… and I love Sophia’s drive & confidence. Plus, as the Founder & CEO of Nasty Gal, I’d say she’s pretty successful, wouldn’t you?

Throughout this post: I’m going to share pictures of my vision board (for work), and write to YOU about what Healthy Hits the Spot & #GirlBoss mean to me. Enjoy!

healthy hits the spot vision board

Here’s the thing with Healthy Hits the Spot. I’m no where near as big as Nasty Gal or Sophia (okay, that goes without saying… haha). I don’t plan to be… to me, having a brand THAT big is a wee-bit intimidating… eeeeek! Cheers to those of you who are or who want to be :).


What I am, however, is a woman who loves the heck out of her job, and would do just about anything to keep Healthy Hits the Spot alive & well for a long, long time! I believe in my Business, my readers (YOU!) believe in my Business, and my Clients believe in my Business.

free consultation healthy hits the spot

Healthy Hits the Spot is a blog, a community, a parter, a thriving Health Coaching practice, and a place where you girls come for encouragement… HHS is a model of healthy, mindful living WITHOUT strict rules & restriction. It’s a place of love, non-judgement, honesty, and support. And that’s how I’ll keep it.

love vision board

When I think #GirlBoss, I think of HHS. I think of myself carrying the responsibility of keeping HHS  healthy and thriving. I carry that responsibility with joy. I want to make a difference, like I know all of you do as well. By being here, being apart of this community, you’re making a difference. We all need somewhere to belong, right?

get up, dress up, show up

paige schmidt, hc

Healthy Hits the Spot is going to continue growing, girls. I’m so glad you’re apart of it! I’ll continue showing up, just like you have always done!

love yourself


a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals.

be in love with your life, every minute of it

YOU are apart, you BELONG, to THIS community of like-minded women who ALL want to encourage, and lift each other up.

finally free

My Vision Board for HHS includes pictures that inspire me to grow. It includes pictures of what’s already been done & created, and what is to come (FINALLY FREE!). It inspires me daily & reminds me of how much I love this place where we all meet 4-5 times per week. This place where I find my crazy-amazing Clients, this place where I get to build relationships with YOU.

Here are the ways I want to connect as a community today:

  • I want you to leave a comment & share – how long have you been reading HHS? What keeps you coming back?
  • sign-up for emails from me – I love being able to connect with directly about once per week, & I love to send you free goodies. I love to say thank you for being here.
  • if you want to kick it up a notch, sign-up for a free Health Consultation by jotting down your name on my list – we’ll talk through where you are, where you’d like to be, and I’ll share honestly if I am the right person to support you.
  • I would love for you to invite a friend who would make our community even better!! Tell someone about HHS today. If you do this on Social Media, tag me! I’ll come say hi & thank you :).

xo, your Coach
