Move, Nourish, Believe

I am IN LOVE with the Lorna Jane philosophy of “Move, Nourish, Believe.” I was VERY excited when the hosts of The Fit Dish link up felt compelled to have us share how we will move, nourish, believe through photo’s. They dig the philosophy too. And how can they not?! It is so inspiring and I think you will love it too, if you don’t already. So thank you to Jill Conyers and Jessica Joy for kicking the link up off this week.

Before I get to my photo’s of how I will Move, Nourish, and Believe this week I have to share some NEWS….. I got to meet Lorna Jane!!!!!!!!!!!! I was like a kid in a candy store, so stinkin’ excited. She came to Dallas for an event so I took my bootay to NorthPark mall to meet her, do yoga with her, and have her sign my cookbook. Aghhhh!!!!!! Fitness role model alert times ten. 🙂

So now back to the meat of the post. How will I Move, Nourish, and Believe this week?! Let’s do this…

{MOVE}

I am inspired to move through yoga almost daily. It sets the tone for a happy, healthy, and well-balanced day. In addition to yoga, I try to get in my 10,000 daily steps either through jogging, walking outdoors, or Insanity Max 30 when I feel the need for an intense burn! I have been adding in a bit of PIYO this past week as well so will continue that. I love how my muscles FEEL after it.

{NOURISH}

I believe in intuitive eating. I believe in nourishing my body with fuel that is mostly healthy, but also tasty. I do not believe in restriction. I do not believe in dieting. I believe in finding out what works best for MY body. I check in before meals to see what it is that I REALLY want. I know my likes and dislikes. I TRUST myself! One of my all-time favorite meals whenever it is cold (and yes, it is even cold here in Dallas, TX) is Harvest Vegetable Chowder. So many yummy delicious vegetables in this dish! And I always eat soup with crackers or toasted bread FO SHO!

{BELIEVE}

I used the word believe a lot in my “Nourish” post, but believing is a GOOD thing in so many different areas. I will believe in myself and in my goals. I will fall, but when I fall I will get back up again. Too keep this attitude up, I want to spend a few minutes daily in some form of meditation, whether journaling, moving meditation, prayer, or stillness. I believe in loving yourself, imperfections and all. Here is a picture I took from last week’s National Eating Disorders Awareness week.

How will you move, nourish, believe this week?

  • I just found out who Lorna Jane was after joining Fitfluential. She seems like a really inspiring woman!

  • Jessica Durfee

    This post was so inspiring, and I loved seeing your beautiful smile!!! OMGosh, you met Lorna Jane. Whew! How awesome is that?! Someday I hope to. That chowder looks insanely delish with all the veg. And, thanks for sharing your believe. It was so heartfelt and profound, and it’s sounds cheesy, but it was like a hug to the heart! ALSO, I love your arms too! : ) #fitfamlove

  • Awww your picture is so inspiring! Hugs are so worth it! That is so great you met Lorna Jane….i’m jealous 🙂 I feel the same about listening to your body. Moving and eating should come from learning what your body is telling you. It is really smart, you know! 😉

    Bri I met Lorna Jane in LA last summer and she is even more amazing in person! I keep hoping she will open a store in Cincinnati.

    I’m reading about intuitive eating as we speak. Do you have any books or websites you recommend?

    Thanks for sharing your positive energy with the #fitfam !

    • I read the book Intuitive Eating by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch. Very good! I have also heard about Geneen Roth. Currently reading her Women, Food, and God book but just started. Let me know what you think about Intuitive eating once you learn more!

  • MB Jackson

    I love your last picture! Great post!

  • Aww, that’s so awesome that you got to meet her (+ get your cookbook signed! I need to look into getting that cookbook! :O )!

    I love your last picture! <3!
