Anyone else bribe themselves to study with something delicious? 🙋🏼♀️
but really, important psa -
most juice places are loadedddd with sugars. and often times the whole menu, of ordered as is, is not the healthy option you think it is. this one included. but they can still be a nourishing sweet treat so i just stick to a few rules:
✨ include a protein - i try to go for h**p or pea ✨ include a f*t - nut butters are the best (peanut, almond, coconut even)
✨ pass on any added sugars - cups of fruit offer plenty on their own. ask for them to not add the sweeteners (even the healthier ones like honey or agave)
✨ ask about any toppings - the granolas typically have lots of added sugars, so i normally swap it out for a whole food option i don’t have to question the ingredients of like cacao nibs or chia seeds or h**p hearts

Gaining 25 pounds over the course of a few months has meant feeling foreign in my own skin. it’s made me want to shrink. to hide. under clothes that don’t fit. under a lifestyle that doesn’t suit me. or even just under the cloak of not trying. .
but i’m done hiding. i’m through waiting for my physical flesh to change before i start loving it. and living in it. because loving our bodies is an action, not a feeling. .
i declare victory over this illness every time i nourish my body. and i declare victory over the lie of being defined by the size of my thighs every time i smile this dimpled smile, standing firm in the truth of who i am, on thighs that support the weight of all the joy i carry. every time i put on an outfit i love and refuse to wait until society says my body is worthy of wearing it. because i am who he says i am. and there’s nothing more radiant than a woman who leads with her heart. .
my body didn’t change at all from friday night to saturday morning, but by making the active decision to believe the truth that it didn’t matter, by gettin’ my hair did and putting on clothes that make me feel like my best self, i declared victory. .
so stand with me in declaring victory today. buy that dress you’ve been dying to get. put on that bikini you keep saying you’ll pull out when you’ve earned it. or step out barefaced in your sweatpants and say #effyourbeautystandards. do whatever you’ve been telling yourself you haven’t earned yet, and stop waiting to live the life you love. .

Football season kickoff. margs with old friends. puppy swims at the dog park. pool hoppin’ in the sun. a run in the rain. chocolate chip pancakes. lots of netflix. a little online shopping. and of course this nourishing spread at @true_food_kitchen. a dream-worthy weekend if i’ve ever met one ✨ and declaring it for the glory that it was: freedom.
praising god for the space this season has allowed for more adventure and more spontaneity. my heart is so full. #molliemason#molliemasoneats#gunnergrizzlymason

11 weeks ago i gave up caffeine, but that doesn’t mean i said goodbye to coffee. i just swapped my organic k-cups for some decaf ones. because i love my bulletproof superfood creamer. because i love my coffee cuddles with the boys. because i love sitting over the word with a s****y cup of brew. because i love starting my day with the ritual (and with the fat!) .

Y’all, healing is hard. there are few things less natural to me than to slow down when all i want to do is ramp up. my soul is just grasping for control - to change, to fix, to fight. .
but i’m learning that right now my fight is in my rest. my fight is in my trust. and my healing is in my surrender. and if white robes + @cocokindskincare chlorophyll masks mean healing my thyroid, i’m in baby 🧖🏼♀️ .

On our wedding night, while all our guests were outside getting the sparklers ready for our exit, we shared a private last dance to “from the ground up” by dan+shay. we chose it because it just felt right in the midst of renovating this place, but we never could’ve known all that was in store for us. so tuesday night, after we moved all our things out of this house we worked so hard on, we played that song on his phone and we danced in our socks in the empty living room. we danced and we cried and we talked through all the memories we shared in the 2 years we called this place home. we thanked god for providing and we prayed over the newly married couple that now gets to make their own memories in this beautiful space. and the best part of all of it was that it just felt right. my heart was so full. so full of gratitude for the blessing this was and so full of hope for the next place he has waiting for us, even if we haven’t found it yet. god is faithful, y’all. and just like we turned this 75-year old dated house into a gorgeous and cozy home, he is faithful to make us new. and to provide. and clinging to that promise and hope gives me peace in the midst of all of life’s storms. 💛 #molliemason
I’m such a big believer that your bedroom should be a sacred place ✨ 🛏 ✨ and this sweet oasis sure has been that for us. we’ve only ever known this bedroom together. and i’m really sad about leaving it. but i’m grateful to know we can create sacred places wherever we go (even in a tiny apartment 🙈) #molliemason .
