Do something today that your future self will thank you for!
Small steps lead to great outcomes overall.
Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday! Worked out this morning & started the day off w/ Kombucha & a green smoothie, now getting my caffeine on!
I have not blogged in about 10 days & boy do I miss it! Things were obviously crazzy with the holidays, but I definitely was practicing verrry healthy ways in spite of all the hustle and bustle.
I worked out every day except Christmas day. Lifetime was packed! But, it felt so good to get out and bust my butt before enjoying any holiday treats. & they were 10x better having gotten a hard workout in. I also ate less than I normally would (although I did let myself indulge). And I drank ONLY a glass to 2 glasses of wine/champs each night. Usually, in the past, I would’ve let it flow.
So, I am feeling wonderful and happy as I get ready for the new year!
Right now I am catching up on here, drinking coffee, and getting ready to go out shopping.
HOPE YOU ALL HAD A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS/or other family celebrations!
Maybe it’s the changes that I see in my body, energy, state of mind, etc. that motivates me or maybe it is all of you wonderful fellow bloggers that just gave me the extra push, but I have NEVER been so motivated in my life.
My workouts have changed so much and I am eating crazzzy delicious, healthy, foods. It is crazy because my body literally cravesss this food.
- Grapefruit, blackberries, and 1/2 a banana for breakfast.
- Coffee w/ coconut milk.
- Egg white omelette filled w/ spinach and light mozzarella.
- Green tea w/ tbls of Apple Cider Vinegar.
- Lunch was a smoothie w/ plain Chobani, mixed berries, coconut milk, flax seed, 1/2 a banana.
- Dinner, 1/2 a turkey club on whole-wheat (no bacon, add avocado)
- Green tea w/ tbls of Apple Cider Vinegar
- Ran 15 minutes
- Walked at an incline of 9 for 15 minutes
- Squats & tons of other leg exercises in the studio
- Then, I worked for 5 hours (cocktail waitress). This is my part time job for some extra cash while I student teach & what I did through out college. I count it as a little light cardio :))
What motivates you all?!
Today is the day to get ready for new week! Get in the mindset to make it an incredible week, full of healthy decisions & productive actions! Plan, plan, plan, & then go out and make this week a HUGE success :)) Get all of your laundry done, get meals planned, workouts planned, room cleaned, etc.
How do you all prepare for the week?!
What makes a Sunday morning so relaxing?! I just love Sundays & I love waking up and enjoying my coffee (not hungover) and feeling happy after a wonderful weekend. As I stated in my post a few days ago, my brother is in the military and was able to come home yesterday! YAYY!
Last night we went to the Black Forest Inn, as a fam, and it was wonderful. This place is an authentic German Inn and it is sooo cool. When at a place, such as this, I feel it is important to indulge in the culture a little bit but still keep it under control.
Before I picked him up at the airport, I got an hour workout in and made sure to push it extra hard. At dinner I had two glasses of German wine and had one potato pancake (there was no negotiating this one). For dinner I had the special which was a juicy pork chop with plum sauce w/ a side of sauerkraut (only ate 1/2 and boxed the rest) & I subbed a side salad.
For the rest of the day I will relax, read your blogs, and drink coffee (& probs get a workout in). HAPPY SUNDAY!!
What do you all do on Sundays?!
Today I am sort of starting a cleanse, nothing intense. I just chopped up cucumbers, lemons, and limes and threw them in 3 different HUGE containers with water and am letting them sit in the fridge and then I will drink it all up and make more over the next 4 days. Also, I am drinking 4 cups of green tea a day with a little Apple Cider Vinegar to really just flush out my system (I usually only drink about 4 cups a week).
Since I am at the new place and have a new kitchen, I want to really get into my system and kind of re-charge a little bit!
For breakfast today,
I had Quinoa w/ berries & some coconut milk. YUMM.
Then for lunch I had Quinoa (the other 1/2 of the batch from lunch) & mixed in tons of spinach and topped with 2 eggs (extra runny).
What I am loving RIGHT now:
This nail color, perfect for this holiday season & gold jewelry! (not me pictured but I will be copying the look quite soon) :))

How do you guys quick cleanse?! or flush out your system?
