What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

There's more to life than getting really healthy and fit! (Which sounds funny coming from a fitness pro...) But we can easily get obsessed without realizing it, especially when we want to see progress. Unfortunately, constant obsession with workouts (and food!) borders on idolatry. There's a better way to get in fantastic shape without ruining your body and heart in the process. 
On this episode, we're taking a closer look at what workout obsession, in particular, looks like. I'm giving you clues that might show you that you're in too deep. 
I'm also sharing with you my own past mistakes with obsession and how it physically damaged my body. 
Plus, you'll get a full explanation of a balanced workout plan for those that still like to workout 5-6 days a week, but don't want to over-train. Also, great info for runners!

At the end of the episode, I answer YOUR questions about food, fitness, and faith/lifestyle!

  • From Katie (42:00) - "Do you think tracking your macros is a good thing or not? Or do you think not tracking and learning how to eat intuitively is better?" 
  • From Rachel (44:35) - "I’ve already dropped some weight (after having my three beautiful babies) and am down two sizes (yay!), but I’m stuck on my love handles. Biggest insecurity. Best way to get rid of them?"
