My name is:
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:
I take it:
with whole milk.
oatmeal made with milk, chia seeds, maple syrup, pinch of salt, and cinnamon topped with chopped apples or banana and peanut butter.
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!
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.
