A shake a day keeps the extra pounds away.

Ok, maybe this statement isn’t really true, but I’ve got a new theory I’m going to try out. During the work week, I tend to lose all sense of planning when it comes to my lunch. I wake up too late and am too tired at night to pack myself a healthful lunch, so I…

Protein Shakes

I have recently gotten into the habit of supplementing a meal with a protein shake, and I think it is great for my body and my wallet! In the morning, I will eat something small before my workout and make a shake in a blender bottle with only water and a scoop of protein for…

6 Week HIIT Challenge: Day 5

If you have been following the challenge, CONGRATS! You have made it to the end of week one! Take a weekend to recover but don’t undo everything you just worked for! Try going for a walk, bike ride, or do some yoga at least one day this week to keep your body active. Also, if…

Holiday Countdown!

I am going to challenge everyone to be on their best behavior for the next 2 1/2 days! How hard can that be, right? Don’t eat white flour, high fat, and high sugar foods (or foods with added sugar) until Christmas Eve. So, that means eggs, oatmeal, and fruit for breakfast and lots of leafy…

Chicken, rice, and egg stir fry!

Tonight I made some leftover crockpot chicken and brown rice, but wasn’t too excited about it. So I through it into a pan and put eggs in with it and there ya go!! A yummy/healthy dinner packed with protein!

Laying off the Carbs

Last night I decided I want to try laying off the carbs and highly processed foods for a couple of days. I read once that low carb diets are quick-fixes, but are hard to maintain and may be harmful. However, mixing in a couple of low carb days a week is a good way to…

What to eat today

I always feel bad for posting after breakfast time, but this could always be ideas that you use tomorrow instead of today…I’m still getting used to blogging! Breakfast: 1 slice wheat 45 calorie bread and peanut butter (pre-workout) 2 hard boiled eggs Fruit smoothie – frozen strawberries, blueberries, and spinach with almond milk. Lunch: Turkey…

Start the day: 11/26/14

I didn’t have time to workout before breakfast this morning, so I started out with a bowl of the oatmeal I made yesterday and a slice of cinnamon raison toast with a little bit of peanut butter. BUT! For those of you that have time to get an early morning workout in, try this toning…

Today’s Meal

I probably think about food as much as I think about working out…which is a lot…but I try to make smart food choices regularly so that I don’t feel too bad about eating badly once in a while. This is what I have eaten/plan to eat today: Breakfast: Crockpot Oatmeal – I put my recipe…
