PreWorkout + Pregnancy? ? You’ve gotta be kidding me right?

I’m no superhuman, I mean I’m growing a human in my body which is pretty super but I don’t have a special energy superpower that allows me to get my booty out of bed and work out. I’m a normal human being….no I take that back I’m a normal NON MORNING human being that enjoys a warm cozy bed and staying in it until I absolutely must get out of it. If you’re connected with me on social media (and if you’re not why aren’t you???) then you’ll notice I’ve been up early in the AM getting my workout in before little man wakes up, so how am I doing it? Well let me explain. **DISCLAIMER** Always check with your doctor before starting a new Read More

Surprise!

You might have noticed (well hopefully you did) that I took a little social media hiatus for the past couple of months. Well I have a good reason. Not only did I take a break from social media but I also took a break from working out and following an eating plan. Why? Well if you haven’t already heard…I’m pregnant! Yup! Bun in the oven. Knocked up. Now that reason alone is not an excuse for not working out and eating well and what does that have to do with social media? Well let me explain. The last week of June I wasn’t feeling well at all, I had worked out pretty hard one Saturday (double workout with pre & post workout, Shakeology & BIG Read More

My Body Beast Meal Plan

Let me start off by saying this is not an official meal plan of Body Beast. I’m excited to start the 12 Week Body Beast program but the eating plan looked like too much work and too much food! So this is a custom Body Beast Meal Plan I came up with, my calorie level has gone up so using the 21 Day Fix portion control containers I’m going to add an additional Green, Red and Yellow container to my current plan. I’m also going to give myself some room to add another Purple but I have a hard time reaching 2 purple containers so I’m trying to be realistic. So this is what my chart looks like 4 Green 2 Purple 5 Red 3 Read More

3 Day Refresh Recap

It’s over! It’s finally over!! Only joking this cleanse was not so bad, I expected much worst. I expected to be hungry all day, to be in the bathroom all day and to be grouchy…well grouchier than usual 😉 But it is in fact, over. I finished my 3 Day Refresh yesterday and I really couldn’t be happier with the results and experience. So let’s talk about this 3 day cleanse and how it went! RECAP Well I already posted my Day 1 recap. I’m pretty sure Day 1 was the least “fun” I was craving all the food I couldn’t eat, I had a caffeine withdrawal headache, and I had that pain in my right side but it wasn’t unbearable. Day 2 was much Read More

Let’s Meal Prep!

It’s taken me a few months to get this meal prep thing down and although I still have some work to do I think I’ve got a nice little routine going. You may be wondering if meal prepping is right for you, well only you can decide that but I can tell you that yes it takes extra work on the weekend but I literally cook nothing all week when I do this meal prep the right way. My breakfast is made, my snacks are ready, my lunch is ready and dinner is a salad that I just throw together. And keep in mind when I say that I don’t have to cook any meals all week I am strictly talking about cooking my own meals, Read More

Protein Waffles

Happy Meal Prep Sunday!!   So many people have asked me about the protein waffles I make so I thought it was time to share the recipe with all of you! First let me tell you that these are so worth the time they take to make! The recipe looked a little difficult to me, it takes me a little while to get the egg whites just right and our waffle maker only makes two at a time; but these bad boys last my husband and I all week and they seriously power me through my morning!   If you’re following the 21 Day Fix program, 1 waffle is 1 yellow container. Here ya go! What You’ll Need: 2 Cups Oat Flour (grind raw oats in a Read More

Bye Bye Baby Weight

Peeps, I’m not about weight loss. I really am not! I’m a firm believer in measuring results by how you feel, how you look in the mirror, how your clothes fit, are you getting stronger and do you have more energy. Now with that being said…I AM going to celebrate the fact that as of Sunday I am 7 lbs below my PRE PREGNANCY weight…yes you read that correctly. I weigh 7 lbs LESS than what I weighed before I got pregnant! Now if I’m not into checking the scale why am I celebrating this? Well because guys, I’ve been working hard at this and it just goes to show that this program is working for me!! How exciting! I’m eating more food than I ever have and I Read More

Meal Prep’n

Tomorrow is Week 3, Round 2 of my 21 Day Fix and I’ll be honest I haven’t been doing great! I started Round 1 super motivated and after I hurt my back and had to sit out on W3 R1, I just never got back into the groove. I fell back into bad eating habits and even when my back felt better I didn’t workout every day. Hey, it happens. The way I see it I have 2 options. 1. I can say screw it and continue on with eating healthy when I feel like it and working out when it’s convenient or 2. I can just DO IT! I choose the latter. So to finish off R2 STRONG, today I did my meal prepping Read More

21 Day Fix Part 1

I’m halfway into Round 1 of 21 Day Fix! Today marks Day 12 and I’m out with an injury so unfortunately I missed out on today’s workout. The good news is that missing this workout really bums me out. Why is this good news? Well because that means I’m actually looking forward to working out! The past couple of years I have dreaded working out, I had the time I had the resources but I just didn’t want to do it, and I felt like crap. The longer I went without working out the more miserable I became. So the fact that I’m bummed I couldn’t do today’s Dirty 30 workout (which is killer) is a great sign! So let me recap some of my Read More
