Food, Fitness, and Life This Week

Hey guys!  How’s it going?  This week has been a blur.  It seriously went by so fast!  When I sat down to write this I had to look back at my pictures to try and remember what all I did all week.  But, I didn’t take very many so that didn’t help.  😉  I’m glad it’s the weekend and I have Monday off so I’m really excited about that!  I hope you all have a great week!  Here’s a recap of my week.  more “Food, Fitness, and Life This Week”

Meal Prep Edition 5

Hey guys!  Today I’m sharing my meal prep from this week.  It was quick, easy, and delicious!  I didn’t do a meal prep last week partly because I didn’t have time on Sunday to plan and shop and prep, and partly because I was just too tired.  But, I had healthy food in the fridge and made that work all week.  But, I’m back this week with a delicious new idea to share with you.  more “Meal Prep Edition 5”

Meal Prep Edition 4

Hi Guys!  This week’s meal prep was super easy and quick because I didn’t have a lot of time on Sunday.  We made a quick run to the grocery store and I picked up a few necessities along with some fruits and veggies.  When we got home, I threw together some quick meals and snacks for the week.  I love meal prepping every week because it’s so easy to have everything ready.  But this week it was necessary!  I have been pretty sick the last couple of days and definitely didn’t feel like cooking anything, so it was super easy to just warm up one of these meals and have something hot to eat without having to spend the time prepping, cooking, and cleaning!   more “Meal Prep Edition 4”

Happy Running

Hey Everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful week!  This was a really busy week for me and I did what I could as far as working out and running.  I just had to be really flexible, and I had a couple of very early mornings!  I still got all of my runs in, but I had to move them around.  I have also been trying to do 2 physical activities each day.  (partly for marathon training, but also for earning points for our wellness challenge at work.)  I did get in 2 activities almost every day, but this week’s weren’t as challenging as last week’s.  This next week should be a lot calmer!  more “Happy Running”

How to Change Your Mindset to Healthy

I’m getting a little personal today and sharing how I changed my mindset from unhealthy to healthy.  Being healthy is a lifestyle.  So how do you break bad habits and start living that lifestyle?  You have to get into a healthy mindset.  You have to train your mind to think healthy, and then it becomes a habit.  A negative mindset leads to failure.  I used to have a negative mind set and I was very unhealthy and unhappy.  I finally figured out how to change that mind set and have become so much healthier and happier!  more “How to Change Your Mindset to Healthy”

Meal Prep Edition 3

Hey guys!  I’m back to share my meal prep from this week!  Meal prepping is a must for me, and I love seeing other people’s meals on social media.  I get so much inspiration from what others eat so I hope you can find some inspiration from what I’m eating.  Having healthy meals readily available is the greatest!  It not only saves you money, but it also ensures that you will make healthy decisions.   more “Meal Prep Edition 3”

Healthy Tips for a Busy Lifestyle

Do you ever feel like it’s impossible to stay healthy when you have absolutely no extra time in your day?  I know I sure do!  But, it is doable!  Today I’m sharing some tips for staying healthy when you are super busy!  I know with my schedule I sometimes find it hard to fit in a work out, or even to eat healthy.  When it’s late and I don’t have a meal prepped and I don’t feel like cooking, fast food can be an easy choice.  But, it’s not the healthy choice.   Even though sometimes it feels like you just don’t have time to be healthy, I promise you do!  I have put together some tricks that I use to help me stay healthy, and hopefully they can help some of you that feel like you’re on the go 24/7! more “Healthy Tips for a Busy Lifestyle”

One Month Down

Hey Guys!  Guess what!  Last week I won the weekly wellness challenge at work!  I got a new foam roller as my prize!   I was really excited!  I ended up with 81 points for the week!  This week’s challenge was still physical activity and the bonus points were still for getting at least 7 hours of sleep each night.  But, there was a new bonus challenge added.  You could earn 5 points for drinking 16oz of water first thing in the morning.  This one was a little challenging for me.  I usually drink water as soon as I wake up, but never that much.  But, I did it each day! more “One Month Down”

Meal Prep Edition 2

Hey Guys!  Welcome to this week’s edition of my weekly meal prep.  This week I tried to use up any food that I already had.  So, my meals are pretty simple, and there wasn’t much prep involved. 🙂 And, that means that this post is really short!  I hope you get some inspiration from my meals!   more “Meal Prep Edition 2”
