And just like that, itâ€™s February 1st!
Holy cow, was January the craziest month ever or what? I thought the holiday season was nuts, but January totally blew it out of the water. But, this year, unlike previous years, I was happy and not insanely stressed about it. Ok, sure, I felt overwhelmed at times, especially working at odd hours of the day (4:00 AM is honestly a nice time to work if you can get to bed at a reasonable hour), but running my own nutrition business is much more enjoyable this time around â€“ and the hard work is finally starting to pay off! đź™‚
In December and January, CNC Macro Plans + Coaching grew by 151 new clients and 21 affiliates. Incredible, right? I also hired a new coach (weâ€™re now a team of 4) and added a few new nutrition offerings (with more to come).Â Needless to say, I was BUSY, but Iâ€™m so excited to continue the momentum throughout 2019 (and beyond)!
Anyway, since itâ€™s Friday and all, I wanted to share my top 5 favorites from the week, so letâ€™s get right to it!
â€śToday is a good day of lifeâ€ś â€“ Quinn said this quote on New Yearâ€™s Day morning while eating a croissant. It made me so happy about the year ahead that I had it framed (via Etsy). It now hangs on the wall in my home office as a reminder that everyday is a good day.
Knit Lululemon Wunder Under High-Rise Tights â€“ So, Iâ€™m a super creep and saw a woman at Goldfish wearing these tights as I watched Quinnâ€™s swim lesson. They looked warm and cozy and like a hybrid leggings+pants that Iâ€™d wear a ton. The woman had a Lululemon bag hanging on the stroller that she was pushing, so I Googled â€śLululemon knit leggingsâ€ť on my phone and immediately found this pair. Success! I sent the link to Mal as an idea for Valentineâ€™s Day, but he ended up surprising me with them over the weekend. (He was probably just excited that I cared enough about fashion to send him a link!) The tights are a little long, so I went to have them hemmed at Lululemon yesterday. I cannot wait to get them back and wear them!!
Thrive Market Organic Chicken Box â€“ We eat a lot of chicken in our house, so Iâ€™m loving theÂ Organic Chicken Box from Thrive Box lately. The quality is great, and itâ€™s priced right at just $3.19/serving. Awesome, right? I also love having a stash of chicken in the freezer for whenever we need it. Did you know you can throw frozen chicken right into your instant pot?
Brandless diapersÂ â€“ Quinnâ€™s been out of diapers for awhile now, but I love that Brandless is now selling them. Theyâ€™re super affordable, hypoallergenic, fragrance free, certified organic, and delivered right to your house. I wish we had this option when we were in the diaper phase! Weâ€™ve placed 3 orders with Brandless now, and weâ€™re definitely fans! The microwave steel cut oats, organic Vermont maple BBQ sauce, and salt & vinegar kettle chips are some of my favorites! đź™‚
Super Bowl Macro â€śGame Planâ€ť â€“ I recently posted this image in the CNC Nutrition & Accountability group and thought it might be helpful to share it here too. I often receive questions from nutrition clients about how to track macros when you have a special occasion on your calendar. Since the Super Bowl (GO PATS!) is just days away, I wanted to share my macro â€śgame planâ€ť for the day.
Who do you want to win the Super Bowl?Â
