I was chatting with a client who has lost 10 pounds since January 1st (WOOHOO!). She is pretty happy with that progress, but said if she was being super aggressive, she could have lost more. I told her, honestly, I’m not a fan of super-aggressive. I think the goal should be that we are all finding a LIFESTYLE we can maintain. A diet is something you quit. We are not going to quit healthy eating. We are going to make imperfect progress every day. Trying today to be a little bit better than we were yesterday. We are not aiming for perfection. We are aiming for progress! Who is with me in this belief?!
I used to think, "I could never work out at home." That was when I thought workouts had to be an hour to count for anything. I couldn't imagine focusing on working out for an entire hour when there were a million things around the house that needed to be done. But now I am so thankful I have discovered 30-minute at home workouts. They have literally changed my life! I get up, get with God, then get it done!!! I also love that every day the workout is different. It keeps me from getting bored. Today was Pilates day! Moms, there is time for you to work out during the day! 30 minutes is all you need! Please reach out to me if you need help figuring it out!
Made jambalaya tonight for the first time! A healthy 21 Day Fix approved recipe, of course! Turkey kielbasa, chicken and shrimp, fire roasted diced tomatoes, onion, green pepper...let me know if you'd like the recipe!
So I came downstairs this morning to find Tyler making mozzarella sticks ... for breakfast. 🤣 At first I said no, but then he made the rational argument that they are mostly cheese, and we are out of cheese sticks. 🤣 I swear, feeding a teenage boy is crazy!!! So I decided to drink to that! Made my self a frozen cafe latte in a margarita glass, complete with umbrella straw. Why not???
Don't wish for it. Work for it! I was thinking this morning about why some people are successful in achieving their health and fitness goals and why some aren't. Aside from biological issues, making your health a priority is essential to getting where you want to go! That's why I get up at the early hour of 5:00 a.m. My workouts are non-negotiable. I get them done before anything else can get in the way. If you are struggling to get your workouts in, take a look at your life and see what can go to make room for your workouts. Say YES to yourself and your goals!! I'm putting together a group for February, please let me know if you'd like to join us!!
When your doctor tells you he wants you to try to drink 2 protein shakes per day to heal and strengthen your back muscles! He was very specific about it because he wanted to make sure the shake had these 3 amino acids ... and in the proper ratio -- Isoleucine, leucine and valine. I came home to research it and BAM! Shakeology fits the bill! #winning!! Yum!!
I don't like to spend a lot of time making my lunch every day. So this weekend I threw some chicken breasts into the instant pot to pre-cook them for the week. Today I added some of it to my favorite superfood salad mix! In the picture you only see one container of greens, but I used two. I still use my containers to help me judge portion size. The bottom pic is the finished product! Yum! 5 minutes or less! What are you having for lunch today?!
This morning I asked Paul why he drinks Shakeology. Surprisingly he didn't say, "because you make me." 😂😂😂 He said, "because it is easy nutrition with healthy ingredients." Life is busy, so it's nice to have a reliable, fast and easy source of nutrition. Cheers! #thenewfastfood #fastfood#fastandnutritious #fastbreakfast
As I finished getting dressed this morning, this wonderful feeling of joy washed over me. I'm on day 2 of a 3 day mini-cleanse and feeling fabulous as I have shed unwanted junk from my body and my jeans fit beautifully again! Not to mention my neck feels sooooo much better. What a relief. I have missed feeling good! I hope you feel good today, too!
