My name is:

Victoria Yates

I’m a:

Registered Nurse & Health Coach specializing in Intuitive Eating.

My non-negotiable wellness habits are:

breakfast, movement, and deep breaths.

I’m out of bed at:

around 6 am.

My morning routine goes something like this:

wake up, drink water, make coffee, sit on my couch and read/pray, do some form of movement whether it’s teaching a barre3 class or going on a walk with my dog.

My morning beverage of choice is:

Coffee.

I take it:

with whole milk.

Go-to Breakfast:

oatmeal made with milk, chia seeds, maple syrup, pinch of salt, and cinnamon topped with chopped apples or banana and peanut butter.

Lunch is:

a grain bowl, salad, or leftovers (because they’re easy!)

Dinner is often:

varies every night… either a hearty soup, some whole grain or gluten free pasta with a protein and some veggies and a sauce, curry, or a burrito bowl. I love trying new recipes at dinner and getting creative with veggie colors and flavors!

Snacks:

homemade trail mix, plain whole milk yogurt with berries, fruit with nut butter.

My favorite way to get my sweat on is:

in a Barre3 class! Check out Barre3Rivertowns

My go to beauty products in and out of the studio are:

Beauty Counter’s overnight resurfacing peel a few times a week… this product is amazing and makes my skin feel so fresh!

For me, self care means:

Beauty Counter’s Countermatch Regimen which includes a super hydrating cleanser, toner, serum, and moisturizer! This is a great line for normal/dry skin and I love the process of a regimen.

My favorite way to de-stress:

get out in nature and do some form of movement whether it’s just a simple walk around the block with my dog or a nice hike!

My favorite intuitive eating hack is:

Give yourself grace. So often our issues with food revolve around the guilt we feel with eating. Learn from every eating opportunity and have a curious mindset.

On a Friday night, you can find me:

either trying a new recipe in the kitchen or a new take-out place, eating with my hubby and our dog while watching Netflix, and then in bed by 10 :)

Words to live by/life philosophy:

There’s nothing too big that you’re not perfectly equipped to handle.

If I had known then what I know now, I would tell my younger self:

Don’t worry so much about what others think of you.

THANK YOU VICTORIA FOR GIVING US A SNEAK PEAK INTO YOUR WELLNESS ROUTINE.
