Design Life the Way You Want it!

Design Life the Way You Want it!

Can you be open to the idea that you really can Design Your Life the Way You Want It?

For a long time, I didn’t believe this was possible. 

I was stuck in a job I didn’t enjoy, living a lifestyle that didn’t align with the way I wanted to live, and was sabotaging myself with food, negative thinking, and victim mentality. 

Can you relate?  I feel like a lot of people can, especially young women.  In the Lifestyle Design Vlog below I talk a little bit more about my story, and how Lifestyle & Career Design Coaching changed my life. Once I was able to get the courage to quit my job, and make the huge steps and investments needed to change my thinking and trajectory of my life, it all started to click.  What I really hope you take away from this video is that you have to believe that it can happen for you. The universe isn’t going to give you anything that you don’t believe is possible.  This is one reason I love to work with people who desire to change their psychology, improve their own lives, and make a difference in the world by doing what they love. 

So if you desire to…

– Create a Life & Career You Love

– Change Your Mindset to Become More Abundant

– Reverse Engineer Your Schedule to Fit Your Ideal Lifestyle

– Gain the Courage to Quit Your Job & Follow Your Heart

Mind Body Eating Changed My Life & Can Change Yours Too

Mind Body Eating Changed My Life & Can Change Yours Too

Mind Body Eating changed my life, and it could change yours too.
If you struggle with binge eating, emotional eating, or negative body image – you have to watch this video below!

> What is Mind Body Eating?

> How the principles of Mind Body Eating changed my life

> Who I think I can specifically help

> And my new online course all about Mind Body Eating!

I believe that the thoughts we entertain are just as important as the food we decide to eat. The eating experience affects your digestion, metabolism, and assimilation of food – not just the type of food! Mind Body Eating is a new approach to health coaching that encompases the entire being – mind, body and spirit. Nutritional facts are great, but as a Coach I’m even more interested in your story, what’s happened in your life, how did you get to where you are today, and what are some small actionable baby steps you can start making to live the life that you desire. 

There is a deeper meaning behind your eating challenges. Mind Body Eating is a doorway into your higher consciousness and evolution. It will allow you to go “ah ha” or “oooo that makes sense” and “wow, I never thought of it that way!” I’m here not only to help you up-level your health and nutrition, but your thought processes, your physical environment, your friend group, your career, and overall contentment and happiness. 

The online course is currently being built as I write this! So exciting! This will be a great step to take if my Private Coaching is off your radar. I recommend the Mind Body Eating online course to anyone who has struggled with binge eating, emotional eating, negative body image, and/or overexercising. I specifically believe I can relate to the young woman who desperately wants to feel like herself again. I personally love courses that provide audio that I can take with me on the road, or listen to whenever needed; so that’s how the online course is being designed. 

I’m a Mind Body Eating Coach certified under the Institute for Psychology of Eating in Boulder, Colorado. I’m also a yoga teacher, lifestyle & career coach, and online wellness advocate.

Overexercise Can Make You Overeat

Overexercise Can Make You Overeat

These days I try to not overexercise. I only do exercise that feels good to me. It’s not about burning the most calories possible, to me. It’s not about killing myself in the gym, or doing anything that feels more like torture than pure joy of moving my body.

In fact, I had to learn this lesson over again this week ; )
I got on my bike for the first time this season! I literally had to hose spray the dust off of it from winter. I went with one of my long time clients who bikes regularly, and she just rocks it every time. I love going with her because it’s more about conversation and enjoying the weather and just feeling really good while moving!
Definitely my kind of work out : )
But if I’m going to be completely honest, I probably road a little too far. We went 20 miles, which to some is like nothing and to others is like a lot… and it felt really good while we were doing it, but the last probably 5 miles it started to not be as fun anymore.
But we both really wanted “that 20 mile marker”!
Or at least our egos did ; )
So we did it and it felt great to accomplish that and we went over the lunch hour so I just had a smoothie afterwards because it sounded super good…. and it was, so so good. My smoothie game has really been on point lately (let me know if you want any pointers/recipies!)
So I worked the rest of the day and had a few more clients – I even did a yoga session with some clients later that day…. I was justifying it, “I need yoga so I won’t be so tight tomorrow from the 20 mile bike ride.”
And then dinner came around and I randomly had some Elk hamburger de-thawed (which was quite delicious) and I found this “Sloppy Elk Burgers” recipe which is very similar to Sloppy Joes…
And by this point it was 7:30pm and I hadn’t eaten since my smoothie and I was pretty ravenous and so I ate the Sloppy Elk Burger with all the Sourdough bun and all the tater tots and all the snap peas.

I ate too quickly, in a stressed state, which I know caused me to shut down digestion and made the food sit in my stomach.

 And all the sudden I had a flashback to when I was training for my first sprint triathlon, and I was over exercising, and it would almost ALWAYS lead to overeating and made me feel terrible about myself. Like I was a hamster just stuck in a wheel trying to lose weight, be healthy, feel good, but I was trying way way way too hard and doing way too many things including eating too much.
But this time I just took a nice hot shower, told honey that I needed to go to bed early because my stomach hurt, ate a couple digestive enzymes (they’ve really helped me) and brought some water with me. I just laid in bed for probably an hour in silence and intentionally relaxed, slowed down, got to a meditative state, and said nice things to myself…
Sure enough my stomach started to feel better and I was able to fall asleep. The next day was the next day! There was nothing to morn over and there’s no way I’d ever “skip breakfast” (totally something I would have done in the past) because I ate more the night before than I usually did. No, now I just have a lighter breakfast and check in with what I need to start my day feeling really good. I think I had a different smoothie recipe that morning.
​​​​​​​I know this is a long story, but if you’ve made it this far you can probably relate.
Exercising a ton doesn’t mean you’re going to lose weight. If you feel like you are caught in this cycle right now where you are over-training, over-exercising, over-competitive, over-perfectionistic, over-doing-everything — and you’re over-eating. I strongly encourage you to back off, just as an experiment, to see what happens. Notice how it feels, and see if you feel better!
Laying in my bed doing absolutely nothing but breathing and saying nice things to myself was the best I felt all day. I wanted to cry because it felt so good to slow down, breathe, get back into my body, and reconnect. Try this or something like it next time you catch yourself in a frenzy of over-doing.
I love you for reading my story! I hope you found it helpful or at least relate-able.
I’m teaching a Live Mindful Movement video in my private facebook group around 3:30pm MTN! Most of you are already in the group, but if you’re not you can join us here. I’ve already had some suggestions to add my resistance bands and to do Yoga Sculpt (which is yoga with dumbbell weights) so it should be a great workout.
I’ll see you later today in Mindful Movement w/ Macy!

Join the Facebook Group: Mindful Movement w/ Macy

Mindful Movement w/ Macy

The new private facebook group that HY offers for free, quick, effective, fun, at-home “workouts”.

Hey loves!

I’m really enjoying Mindful Movement w/ Macy to connect with my students from allll over, and provide some freebie content for everyone that supports me and wants to be more involved in what Hungryoga is all about.

So what is Hungryoga all about?

Hungryoga is the union of mindful movement, eating psychology, and living life by design.

Mindful Movement is the first step. For way too long, I was using exercise as punishment. I had the mentality, “no pain, no gain” and the only thing I was gaining… was weight.

Did you know that overexercising, too much cardio, and high intensity working out – can actually cause you to gain weight?

Ya. Crazy.

But so true. When our body is in a constant state of Stress, we tend to hold onto weight to protect us.

That’s why it is my PASSION to provide people with Mindful Movement. To do things that actually feel good. Give you more energy. Leave you feeling better. More integrated. Connected. And Confident.

In Mindful Movement w/ Macy I share short, fun, and laid back Pilates, Yoga, & Strength Training videos. I will also hop on and just connect with you. This group is completely free, but I will talk about upcoming courses, workshops, and other offers online so members of the private group will know about my offers first.

My goal and intention with this group is to give a lot of value, help people love themselves again and realize that exercise can feel good again.

The latest video I posted is with a Resistance Band! A short and sweet 13 minute video : )

You can purchase the ones I use below. Love them!

I hope you will join me and everyone else in Mindful Movement w/ Macy

Lots of Love!

‘Cowboy Caviar’ aka ‘Nommy Dip’ Video Recipe!

NOMMY DIP IS SO GOOD!!

Especially in the summertime, it’s so refreshing! I have heard this called ‘Texas Caviar’ or ‘Cowboy Caviar’ but all I do is go NOM NOM NOM when I’m eating this, so that’s why I called it Nommy Dip! I’ve made several variations of this dip, but I love this one because of all the fresh ingredients and it has stayed good in my fridge for a week now.. and there’s avocado in it!

I made a different variation of Nommy Dip a few weeks ago at a pot luck, and everyone raved about it! Including me… I’ve been making homemade breakfast burritos too, and the Nommy Dip is great to use as a salsa! Something that the girls K&K at Tone It Up taught me was that you can use bell peppers, cucumbers, zucchini – really any veggie that you can form into a chip for your dip! I’m a sucker for tortilla chips and any kind of salsa, but I love using veggies as chips too – for all dips!

So here’s the ingredients for the hipster Cowboy Caviar… Nommy Dip!
– 2 avocados
– 1/2 red onion
– 1 red bell pepper
– 2 limes
– 1 bunch cilantro
– 1 can corn
– 1 can black beans
– Favorite Dressing: I love Tessemae’s Italian
– Favorite Spices: I used garlic powder, salt, and cayenne
– Favorite Chips: Tortilla chips, blue corn chips, and black bean chips are all delicious with Nommy Dip!

Follow along with the video to make Nommy Dip & ENJOY!!

 

1. Cube Avocado, Red Pepper & Red Onion

 

2. Pick & Chop Cilantro – act like your picking flowers petals off a stem, and then chop ’em up!

 

3. Rinse & Drain Canned Corn & Black Beans

 

 

4. Squeeze 2 limes, marinate with Italian dressing & add your favorite spices!

 

5. Enjoy right away or store in fridge up to 7 days!

I hope you liked this Nommy Dip Recipe! Please leave a comment and let me know if you made it, or maybe came up with your own fancy variation of Nommy Dip aka Cowboy Caviar. For more recipes like this you can follow @hungryoga on Instagram and check out our “Story”.

 

 

 

Before you go, I do have a question to ask just because I’m curious!

– Do you believe that decreasing our consumption of meat can help conserve the planet, and improve our overall health?

 

Let me know!
