Oh Monday, how did you get here so soon?!?
Greeting you with a super green, but pumpkin flavored smoothie this morning 🎃🌱 Need this fuel to get me through the stresses that I know I'll face today 🙌🏼
Today starts week 3 of our Sept challenge and this week is always one of the toughest! A time where we all start to lose motivation and get off track. So this morning in our group we're chatting of ways to avoid that and resetting our WHYs!
Prepping myself up for a successful week despite all the craziness that I know will happen at work. I'm workout ready and created a meal plan yesterday that's simple to follow, don't need any extra thinking this week 🙏🏼
#nofilterneeded to capture the colorful beauty of today's scrumptious breakfast! Whole grain toast with a ranch greek yogurt spread, eggs, roma tomato, avacado, and dill. I gobbled it up so fast, I'm not sure I even tasted it!😋🍳🍽🍅🍞
Don't waste today. I always just sit on my dreams instead of making them happen. Im tired of seeing other people live the life I want for me and my family. Time to make things happen for myself. I challenge you to do the same. Life is too precious to spend it being miserable or not fully happy. Enough is enough. Stay blessed!
So meal prep was a little different this week...I pulled all the perishables to the front of the fridge so I will use those up before vacation! And I ended up not even needing to spend much at the grocery, so that is a win win in my book! #healthjourney#21dayfix#dontgiveup#focusfocusfocus
I may or may not have complained through my Monday morning workout today😝. BUT... I feel pretty good about the challenge of the week (CHOW). Med ball squats with overhead med ball tosses in 3 minutes timed. My friends at 9Round always keep the bar set high! .
I'm glad I got myself headed in the right direction today and feel so much more motivated to tackle the day!💪😄. .
Get out there today guys!! Have a great Monday!
Meal prep doesn't have to be hard or complicated!
A couple of weeks ago I made a big batch of turkey sausage pasta sauce in the crockpot and froze some of it! Yesterday I pulled it out and put a spaghetti squash in the crockpot to cook. So lunch today is the sauce over some spaghetti squash! Little prep and super delicious 👌🏻 #mealprep#mealplan#lunch
"When should I post before/after pictures??" 🤷🏼♀️ I know we all struggle to figure this out at some point. I'm on week 2️⃣ of my 2nd round of #21dayfix and I just had to post this. I know the angles are different. It's hard to take a picture of yourself w/out dropping your camera sometimes...🙈 BUT I just wanted to show a little sneak peek of my progress so far! All of my bloating is gone and my sides, back, and tummy are slimming!!!! 🙀That is huge for me! If you're on a journey to health or weight loss, do yourself a favor and take pictures every week or so!! 📸You may not feel like your body is changing, but you'll be able to see it and HOLY CRAP does that boost your confidence!!! 💜
No makeup, hair undone, 75 attempts and a filter later (stay at home mom life🙄), here's me giving Monday the 🖕! Monday doesn't mean starting fresh✅
Monday doesn't mean starting a new diet✅
Monday doesn't mean sweating my weekend choices✅
Monday doesn't mean new day, new me✅
Monday doesn't mean DIDDLY SQUAT!! Monday's just another day for me.
As it does for you.
Don't let Monday rule your food choices. Just EAT. And the less you put this day on a pedestal, the less rollercoaster-y you find your emotional state.
And I'm all about that✌️#loveyourbodymovement
Loving everything about being on vacation with my family in TX, but I do admit I am missing my kitchen a smidge! Over the last 5 years as I have lost 100lbs I went from hating being in the kitchen and having no idea how to cook to now it is my happy place & something I enjoy!! One of my favorite lunches or dinners are these super easy, protein packed Tuna Stuffed Tomatoes! 🍅.
3 Beefsteak tomatoes
2 cans Tuna
1/2 plain Greek yogurt
3/4 cup mozzarella cheese
Salt & Pepper to taste.
Preheat oven to 400. Drain each can of Tuna and mix with Greek yogurt. Salt and pepper mixture to taste. Hollow out the tomatoes. And place Tuna mixture in the tomatoes. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove and top each tomato with 1/4 cup cheese and place back in the oven for 2 minutes (or until cheese bubbles) with the broiler on. Remove and serve over lettuce! Would also be yummy with Ranch, but I had no Orange Containers left for the day!.

Happy monday!!! I sure have created a habit... I didn't want to workout this morning.. but it's like a priority now... it's something I just have to do... but I switched it up today... Autumn and I did Pilates!!! Havnt done that one in a while... felt good... #beachbody#21dayfix#pilates#nevermissamonday
I found this quote and It really stood out to me! I have been challenging myself everyday to do a little better than the day before. I have been eating better, working out more and working on my own personal development. I have been doing this not only for myself but for my family. I have only been doing this for 3 weeks now but I have seen change! In a few short weeks I have more energy and i don’t feel like I am in such a slump.
I am down 9” and 5lbs in just 3 weeks!
I would have not seen change if I didn’t challenge myself!
I want to help others feel the same way!Who wants more info on the next challenge group or is ready to join the group? #21dayfix#beachbody#teamawaken#gettinghealthy
Los músculos abdominales son como cualquier otro músculo! Hay que entrenarlos hasta que se fatiguen y no tengan otra opción que recuperarse y desarrollarse. Dedícales unos 10 minutos un día si y un día no!
Esfuerzo y dedicacion en el ejercicio y la alimentación. Esa es la fórmula secreta. Que no es ni tan secreta. 😊 #abs#ejercicioencasa#21dayfix#21dfx#adelgaza
My October health and fitness group is kicking off October 2! If you want help with fitness accountability, meal planning, portion control, and/or clean eating this group is for you! *
Requirements: I must be your official Beachbody Coach. You must commit to 30 days of clean eating, daily shakeology and a Beachbody program of your choice! 💪
That's it! In 30 days you can be living a healthier lifestyle! 👊 How bad to you want it?!
I'm striving for results and beginning to see them :) Over the weekend I did ok. Small portions and also had a bridal shower with lots of foodies that I normally wouldn't eat. But hey, I ain't ganna starve myself. Autumn killed me in the double dirty thirty today but I loved it! #21dayfix#fitness#bod
Just when I think I'm in pretty decent shape, I decide to do 21 day fix. Let me tell y'all, thin does not equal fit. Ha!
It wasn't easy, especially with my toddler running around laughing at me and trying to join in 😂 but day 1/21 is DONE and it feels SO good!
Happy Monday! ❤
I am on a mission this week.
I am stronger than my strongest excuse.
I made a pact to get my workout done in the morning every single day (so far so good).
I will follow my meal plan to a T (so far so good). Here is a glimpse of my lunch today.
I will make myself proud this week. Will you?💪🏼
"Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops. What if Your healing comes through tears. And what if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You're near." Lord knows I had my fair share of tears and raindrops last week. But He used each of them to let me know He was there.
Blessed to be feeling better today...physically, mentally, and SPIRITUALLY.
I decided to switch up my fitness program for the next few weeks. I realized last week that my body needed a restart so after light workouts and eating more carbs and sugar in 5 days than I have in the last 5 months...heck may even be more than the 3 years...I am ready for a fresh start today.
No better way to "start over" than from where it all began...doing the program that helped me lose 20+lbs and realize that taking care of my health couldn't be an after thought any longer...it must be a priority.
I was pretty amazed though to see that 3 years ago I was using 3lb weights abs today I rocked it with my 12lb weights.
New Monday, New Start.
I should be on my last week of 21 Day Fix. Life has a way of sending you set backs. No matter what form they come in it's how you react to those set backs that determines your outcome. I'd like to say I took these set backs and handled them like champ. But let's be honest we can only take so much. I did good for a while and then I broke down. Life isn't always rainbows and unicorns. Sometimes is thunderstorms and black cats. Last week was a thunderstorm and black cat kind of week. But guess what today is a new week and I am going to do my best to make the best of it. So happy to get through 30 minutes of cardio without coughing up a lung. I did have to stop several times to cough and catch my breath but it's way better than last week So I will take it! #rainbowsandunicorns#lifeishard#stillsick#notgonnagiveup#21dayfix#cardiofix
