Sweat to Sparkle with Ryman Fitness (8)
This princess packs a serious punch!
Not only is Lizzie Ryman a kick ass cowgirl, she is a 2017 Calgary Stampede Princess and is also a Certified Personal Trainer who operates Ryman Fitness out of Calgary, and Cochrane, Alberta. Through positive and upbeat motivation and guidance, her fitness program is tailored to balance a healthy and fit lifestyle. Ryman understands that balance can be hard to maintain, especially when you're on the road, or spending long days at your 9-5, and then heading straight to the barn. Through the "Sweat to Sparkle" series, brought to you every Monday, Ryman hopes to reach and help as many cowgirls (and cowboys too!) as she can. You can learn more about the services Ryman Fitness offers at www.RymanFitness.com.

Avocado Toast with Egg

Sometimes simple is just better.
Top two lightly toasted slices of whole-grain bread with smashed avocado and a sprinkling of salt and pepper.
Layer on two sunny-side up eggs for a healthy dose of protein, and you've got a well-rounded breakfast.
Stack 'em in a tupperware container for easy transport or cook the yolks a bit more and make the whole thing into a sandwich.
Louisa Murch - White is the Creative Director of With A Western Twist, a western lifestyle blog that shares a variety of trending topics, stories from the show pen, influencer interviews and so much more. After deciding to retire her cutting horse, Lady, she found herself a little lost and a lot out of shape. Lizzie, and Louisa, know each other from the Calgary Stampede Ranch Girls, above is a photo of them running a victory lap with barrel racer, Lisa Lockhart. (No big deal or anything). Cue Ryman Fitness to come in for some day-saving, and booty-kicking in the process.
Who are you doing this for? What are you doing this for?
That's been on my mind lately.
I have had some very busy weeks, i'm coupling a big move, with launching a new business and I guess if we're going to get real with you guys - to top it off, I've gone through a breakup. Not sure about the readers out there but when I'm sad, I don't eat. So although I guess some may see that as a "blessing", it's pretty hard to work-out or realistically feel good in any capacity when you're emotionally exhausted and physically depleted. This week I'm getting back to being on track, I'm sustaining my body to actually workout, and I'm reminding myself quietly that i'm doing this for me. The perks of the physical changes are obviously nice, but lately i'm finding a lot of joy in the added energy, and the confidence I have in myself when I pull off a work-out I couldn't have dreamed of a few months ago. I love being strong, it's who I am, and the more I commit myself to this whole healthy lifestyle thang, the stronger I am. Hope you guys have a really great week. <3
