9 Different Ways My Office Has Been Set Up (Pictures!)

by healthyhitsthespot on March 30, 2015 · 1 comment

Good-morning, all! Happy Monday!

Today, Marco and I are in Ventura. Of course, right? I mean, we’re practically there every weekend! Ha. We just love our family and feel happy being home I guess!

I’m sharing something fun & different with you all today. My office has had many different looks. I have a few that I’ve pulled together here… but I definitely have not found them all.

In 2011 before I ever moved out. I was only blogging at this time :).

In early 2012 when I lived with my friend Aubrey. I was again, only blogging at this time.

In late 2012 when I moved into my Studio Apartment. I had begun Health Coaching here!

When I first moved into our 1 bedroom and got really busy with Health Coaching. Super organized, but zero room for things.

When I upgraded my office at the 1 bedroom apartment.

When we moved back home with my parents to save money for the Wedding.

When we moved to Hawaiian Village in Ventura. Our first married home!

After I got my iMac, same 2 bedroom apartment!

Finally, at our house in San Luis Obispo (current).

And… you just know there are going to be more! Haha! Can you believe how many different faces my office has had?

Now it’s your turn:

  1. Do you change your furniture around? Or move as much as I do (apparently)?!
  2. Or, do you like to keep things the same for a long period of time?

5 Tips to Stop Bingeing

5 Tips to Stop Bingeing

Good-morning girls!

To anyone who is new here, welcome! I made this page just for you —> (view)!

I’m here to talk about how to stop bingeing today in five tips. I’ve made a video for you, which you can watch above. If you’re at work ;) and cannot play this video, I’m writing out the 5 tips below. I talk more about each tip in the video, so when you can, watch the video too :)

5 Tips to Stop Bingeing Today:

  1. You’re only in charge of getting through TODAY. Tomorrow, you can reassess.
  2. You must know that you can have whatever food you’re visualizing/wanting to binge on ANYTIME.
  3. Tell yourself at night (assuming it’s night time) “I can have this food tomorrow morning when I wake up if I would like. All I am in charge of is getting through tonight, and tomorrow I can reassess.” <– 99% of the time you’ll wake up feeling glad that you didn’t overindulge. BUT, if you do want the food in the morning, you MUST honor that.
  4. Remember that you absolutely always wish at the end of a binge that you had not done it (you have to believe this to be a fact).
  5. Give yourself permission to binge if the other tips are not working. Say “okay, Paige, if you really think this is what will help you / be best for you right now, go ahead. Go ahead and binge.” This takes away the urgency / excitement leading up to a binge, which is half of the rush we get from it!

Remember, if you struggle with binge eating, definitely watch the 6 minute Video :) 

I hope this helps you! I am so thankful for you and to have you following along. I can’t wait to continue serving you. Have a wonderful weekend ladies!

Daily Eats: Taco De Mexico with My Hubby

by healthyhitsthespot on March 26, 2015 · 8 comments

cucumber snack

Good-morning all! I have another day of Daily Eats for you :).

Wednesday

I woke up around 7:30 with Marco & did a little bit of work while I sipped on some black coffee.

When Marco left for work at 9:30, I left for the gym. I did some walking at an incline while listening to lectures from the IIN Immersion Program. This is where I’m finding my love from Danielle LaPorte! That post coming next week :).

brussel sprouts

Breakfast: I got home around 10:30 and was super hungry by this time. I snacked on some sliced cucumbers (top pic) while I made breakfast, which was 2 eggs over-medium & a big ol’ pile of brussels sprouts. I was craving them!

coconut oil coffee

Around noon I was craving some coconut coffee, so I made this cup & enjoyed it while I worked away at the computer & had Client Sessions.

cacao powder coffee

This cup of coffee had about 6 oz coffee (Honey Co. from Scout Coffee), 1 T. coconut oil, 1 T. raw cacao powder, and a little swirl of agave for sweetness.

spinach salad & tuna

Lunch: was around 2:30 and was a spinach salad with goat cheese, mandarin oranges, and so good tuna! This tuna had: mayo, dijon mustard, cucumber, and cilantro (mixed in the food processor).

taco de mexico

Dinner: when the Hubby got off work at 6:00 & called me walking out of the building I asked: “okay, for dinner we can either eat the leftover tuna in sandwiches for dinner, or (emphasis here) we can go to Taco De Mexico when you get home & get burritos!” OF COURSE he was all for the burrito’s!

So, we went out once he was home and each got a steak burrito. Marco also ordered a Horchata & a chicken taco, which is always fun because then I get a taste of each :). This burrito was so good, and I was so satisfied after! I at almost all of the burrito myself, but toward the end I felt myself getting full & handed off the last few bites to Marco <– pure excitement for him anytime I do this!

Now, to end:

Daily Eats: How to Have an Empty Fridge by Sunday

by healthyhitsthespot on March 25, 2015 · 11 comments

breakfast scramble

Good-morning all!

I hope you slept well. I did not. I was dreaming about work most of the night. It wasn’t anything bad or stressful, but somehow I just could not turn my creative brain off! I woke up around 1:00, drank some water, stretched… tried everything I could to get back to bed.

Ultimately, the only thing that helped me was to get really comfortable and purposefully start thinking about something other-than work. I love my job. My creative brain though… it just won’t shut off sometimes.

Let’s jump into Daily Eats, with the intention of walking you through how to use everything in your fridge! I said by Sunday (in the title), because that’s when most people grocery shop :).

Tuesday

Breakfast: we had an odd 5 eggs left, and I knew I’d probably like to have eggs today (Wed), or at least have the option to.

So, I mixed together 3 eggs & some of the leftover steak that we had in the fridge. I cooked it together & added avocado, Organic sour cream, jalapeños, and salsa. We had this scramble (picture above) with a slice of toast each. Oh, and black coffee in my SLO mug :)! Yum!

side salad

Lunch: we had breakfast pretty late, like 10:30 (we slept until 8:00 – prob another reason I didn’t sleep well)… so lunch was really minimal around 1:15 PM. I had a small side salad with 4 things that needed using: spinach, goat cheese crumbles, mandarin oranges, and my homemade balsamic vinaigrette.

After lunch I had a Client Session & then Marco and I headed out to the gym. While there I walked at an incline for about 50 minutes. I really needed to move/stretch out my legs from the day before!

dinner sauteed spinach tofu : black beans

Dinner: we were both so hungry by dinner time. I looked at what we had in the fridge/freezer that needed to be used: the rest of the steak, the tofu/black bean mix we’d made, the rest of the spinach, and the lobster rolls in the freezer. We also needed to use the cilantro, garlic, and avocado.

So, with that, I made us dinner! Marco had a little steak sandwich with: steak, two slices of multigrain toast, cilantro, sour cream, and avocado + sautéed spinach & some of the tofu/black bean mix. I had: tofu/black bean mix (we used this for Nacho’s last week – I’ll post the recipe here soon!) with cilantro, avocado, and jalepenos with a bigger side of sautéed (in olive oil) spinach with garlic. So yummy!

lobster rolls

We also snacked on a couple (each) of these lobster filled rolls. We packed the leftovers away to finish up today (Wednesday).

After dinner we took a walk downtown SLO. We went to Barnes & Noble and looked at the book The Desire Map, by Danielle LaPorte. We decided that we want to finish off the books we’re each reading now, and then go buy that book and do it together. Another whole post on her later!

milkshake

Petite-Treat: when we got home, we both wanted something sweet. I knew we had a wee-little-bit of ice cream left, and a wee-little-bit of organic whole milk left. So, I mixed the two together in the blender and made us mini milkshakes. SO yummy (but also, possibly another reason I couldn’t sleep! Ha! SO many reasons).

After the day was over we climbed into bed. Marco watched random Netflix shows & I searched high and low trying to find inspiration for what to put on my grocery list. I couldn’t find anything – I guess food just didn’t sound that fun last night! So, I asked all of you on instagram and you gave me SO MANY ideas! Thank you so much! Now I have a grocery list and am ready to hit Trader Joe’s today or tomorrow.

We just have a couple of things left to finish, which is perfect, because that will put me at TJ’s this evening/tomorrow morning.

To finish: tuna sandwiches, 1 side salad (I set that aside before sautéing the spinach), a few lobster rolls, and two eggs. Literally, that’s our fridge! I love having an entirely fresh fridge to fill each week or week n’ a half. Depending on how much we eat out. Which, we’ve been eating out more lately because it’s been a way to get outside of the house and connect with new friends in a new town. It’s been fun :).

Daily Eats: Monday + What to Expect From Me!

by healthyhitsthespot on March 24, 2015 · 15 comments

scout coffee

Good morning all! Ah, today, I am here for some old school Daily Eats, which so many of you love! Hey, I love when other bloggers post their eats too. It’s fun, & I always get new ideas! Plus, walking with someone through their day just makes you feel like you know them more, which is always fun, right?!

Monday

Breakfast: Yesterday morning started with a banana & a cup of black coffee in my new Scout Mug (above).

easy hair style

I threw my hair up & got dressed (easy style) and headed to the bank with Marco. I had to open up my big girl retirement account ;).

kreuzberg-copy

After the bank, the Hubby & I continued our walk downtown and landed ourselves at Kreuzberg Coffee Co. We stayed for about 2 hours. I worked from my Laptop while my Hubby enjoyed his day off searching trailers on his iPad.

Our future (soon hopefully?!) dream –> to travel/live in an old school trailer for at least 1 year! I mean, how fun does that sound?

split pea soup

Lunch: Afterward, we walked home & I made us lunch. Split pea soup with tuna & toast. I say this every time: this meal tastes so much better than it looks!

Split Pea Soup & Toast: 2 cans of Amy’s Split Pea Soup, 2 cans of Tuna in water (drained) – both heated on the stove together. Split into two bowls & pair each both with a slice or two (these were tiny toasts) of toast with Kerrygold butter (only the best!) on top. Deeeelicious. If you like it spicy like we do, add Sriracha.

fro yo

Petite-Treat: After lunch my sweet tooth kicked in. I knew I had half of this (pictured above) FroYo left from our Sunday night outing. So, I let my belly rest for about 30-minutes, and then asked myself again. Yep! I wanted to enjoy the other half of my FroYo. So, I cuddled up with my Hubby & had the other half.

movie - the best of me

Interruption: Sunday night, we walked to RedBox & picked up this movie. It’s a Nicholas Sparks movie (like the Notebook). It was a tear jerker for sure! This is when I had the first half of my FroYo :)

OK, back to Monday. After my treat I worked & read for a while at home. At about 2:30 Marco and I hopped up and went to the gym. I walked/ran for 20 minutes and did about 6 sets of leg exercises. It felt amazing.

plutos in SLO

When we got home we showered & got dressed to go to dinner at Pluto’s with two friends that we’ve become close to here in SLO: Jeremy & Tera. It was so fun! I adore these two.

turkey in flight

Dinner: I ordered this “Turkey in Flight” sandwich which had turkey, swiss cheese, crispy bacon, red pepper artichoke spread, lettuce, and tomato. For a side, I had roasted veggies. LORD. This sandwich was incredible! The bread tasted like I was eating my sandwich on a buttery biscuit. It was heavenly.

Pluto’s also has incredible Salads. I knew so from Yelp. Which, by the way, I really want to update my Yelp. I have so many places to add & review!

cookie & milk at scout

After dinner we all walked around town and cured everyones sweet tooth. The boys got Chocolate Milkshakes from Old San Luis BBQ (at the bottom of Higuera next to West End Coffee) which are the best and Tera got milk & a cookie from Scout Coffee. I had a taste of the cookie & a taste of the milkshake & felt great (my sweet tooth was already cured from the other half of my FroYo earlier in the day.)

I took a picture because oh my gosh. How cute! I can’t wait until I get a chocolate chip cookie craving so I can enjoy this one!

We sat in the Coffee Shop for about an hour and talked away. When we were all ready to leave Marco and I walked back home & got cozy on the couch for a movie night. I had some Yogi Relaxed Mind tea as well. It was such a good day.

Finally Free Program
