Meal Prep 101

Instead of just posting my videos here to watch- I’m going to post the link to them for YouTube as well. Please feel free to go watch all my rambling thoughts on things over there. While you’re there, will you hit the subscribe button and show some love? 😁

Here are some rambling thoughts of mine- because let’s face it……that’s what I doΒ πŸ˜‚

Simple Protein Pancakes

Simple Protein Pancakes

Pancakes with protein? Yes please! 😍

Kodiac protein pancake mix + egg whites in place of water. Add water to desired consistency. Use 1/4 cup measuring cup and cook at 350. 🍳

Serving size is roughly 4….but I can only eat 2 because I get full. And trust me…this girl can eat! πŸ˜‚

So…want to eat healthier and not give up pancakes? πŸ˜‰ you’re welcome

The Harder the Battle, the Sweeter the Victory

The Harder the Battle, the Sweeter the Victory

I started working out 8 years ago. I was so unhappy, uncomfortable, and unhealthy. I didn’t start working out for my appearance. I started because I was so miserable, I was hoping it would make me feel better. Because in reality- life didn’t feel worth living to me.

I pushed through on days that felt impossible. I pushed through when people told me that it WAS impossible. That I was being stupid for eating chicken breast and brown rice and spending time working out. I was told that when we have kids, we gain weight and aren’t attractive anymore. That this was real life, and I was being stupid for feeling like there had to be a better way.

I came through on the other side having lost the weight, gaining strength, pride, and self confidence.

I pushed through when I was told that there was no way that I could compete without hiring an expensive competition coach. That even though I am a trainer, I will never make it as a competitor.

I came through on the other side after walking across that stage, more proud of myself than I have ever been. πŸ‘™πŸ‘ 

Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t. It just means THEY can’t.

If you are wanting to set out and change your life with a healthy lifestyle, I have a couple spots left to take part in a 12 week training program designed by me. (Disclaimer : I am NOT a beachbody coach) There will be 12 weeks of workouts and meal plan guidance. A private group to ask questions and share triumphs. ❀️❀️
