Well, long time no blog posts! But, happy to have time to dedicate to a little writing tonight. Life continues to move in the forward direction – time seems to go faster and faster. Do you ever wish you could just push a “HOLD” button?! Goodness…I sure do.
It’s been so long since my last post that I don’t really know how to quickly recap the past four weeks. I’ve remained dedicated to consistent healthy eats roughly 80% of the time, have religiously been taking my Isagenix Probiotic & Digestive Enzymes on a daily basis, have routinely cleansed each Monday (sometimes two-day cleanses into Tuesday evening), and have somehow included practicing yoga two to three times per week in my current exercise regimen (and obviously still become a sweaty mess in the gym on most days!!). Honestly, I feel more balanced than I have in quite some time. Though I don’t use body weight as a solid measure of progress (since I’m in the game to build muscle & become stronger in the gym…and this doesn’t always jive well with the scales), I’ve definitely noticed a slow & steady decline in the number on the scale since purchasing the Withings+ scale (which syncs to my iPhone each morning I step on the scale). To me, it isn’t all about that number, but it does indicate to me that my current routine is in check. It also motivates me to keep up the hard work and dedication.
Here are some random eats photos I’ve snapped over the past several weeks:
Protein pasta with tomato basil sauce & parmesan cheese + broccolini
Two corn tortillas with egg white scramble (peppers / spinach / onion) & topped with spicy guacamole — this was dinner, not breakfast!
Gluten-free lime tortilla chips with grilled chicken, corn/black mix/pepper mix, bbq sauce + side of fresh green beans – Yes, random!!
Yesterday I did a little Sunday meal prep along with church, yoga, the store, the gym, laundry, and ???. I whipped up egg muffins, a small batch of PB powerballs, and these:
Tri-colored Quinoa, black bean, corn, and sweet potato bake — so simple and so tasty!!
Mini Thai Chicken Meatballs — also very simple, yet healthy & delicious!!
If you’d like the recipe for either of the above, just shoot me a comment or an email to KTfitness23@gmail.com and I’ll send them your way! Or, if you have any questions about the protein shakes I utilize, the cleanse days, or the gut health (probiotic + digestive enzymes) products that all have been so helpful to me, please don’t hesitate to ask. Remember: just because you inquire doesn’t mean I expect you to purchase! Everyone’s health and health goals are different – I’m only here to help you try to reach yours.
Whatever YOU is…do YOU. Be YOU…but, be the BEST you that you can be. Nothing less. (Snapped before church a few Sundays ago – a happy place of mine!!)
Today is Monday, so I hope you all got in your workout! Why?? … Because you NEVER miss a Monday! A solid cycling class followed by two quick dreadmiles for me this evening. Tomorrow yoga is on the agenda plus taking Sodie-pup for a walk…she needs her exercise, too!
Until next time…
