Back To Reality

Hey Everyone! This week was back to reality for me.  It was kind of bittersweet.  I was really sad that vacation was over, but I was also ready to get back to my normal routine.  I didn’t workout or really worry about what I ate on vacation at all.  I’ll post about why soon.  I just made sure to enjoy myself and my uninterrupted time with my husband.  Real life can get so busy, so it was nice to unplug and be away from all distractions.  more “Back To Reality”

Make Ahead Smoothie Freezer Packs

Hey Guys!!  In the summer smoothies are a staple in my house.  I love them for breakfast, lunch, pre or post workouts, or just a snack.  I love that they are so versatile that you can pretty much put anything in it and it will taste good – most of the time.  🙂  Today I’m sharing what my favorite smoothie combos are and how I prepped smoothie packs for my freezer.  more “Make Ahead Smoothie Freezer Packs”

Meal Prep Edition 8

Hey guys!  This weekend I was a little pressed for time, so I just threw something together for my lunches, but it turned out great!!  It’s always nice to have a few go-to meals that can be thrown together quickly so you still have something healthy to eat.  I also like to keep some ground turkey in the freezer so I can thaw it out and cook it and pair it with some veggies – fresh or frozen, whatever I have on hand.  more “Meal Prep Edition 8”

Meal Prep Edition 7

Hey Everyone!  Today I’m sharing my meals from this week with you!  I hope you can find some inspiration if you need it, or try it out if you just want something different.  This week’s meals were quick, easy, and very tasty!  I made ground turkey taco salads.  more “Meal Prep Edition 7”

Meal Prep Edition 6

Hey guys! Happy Hump Day!  Things have finally settled down around here and I have had some time to do some real meal prepping.  I love having just quick go to meals that I can prep quickly, but I do get tired of them sometimes.  The last couple of weeks I have been eating yogurt with fruit for breakfast and ground turkey and steamed veggies for lunch.  I have been buying the frozen steamer veggies.  By doing that, I can have my meals prepped for the week in less than 30 minutes.  But, I was ready for some real meals this week.  more “Meal Prep Edition 6”

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”

Tex Mex Turkey “Meatloaf”

Hi Friends!  If you haven’t figured it out yet, I LOVE ground turkey!  This is my go-to for everything.  I always have several pounds of it in my freezer!  It’s easy to cook, you can season it so many different ways, and it’s easy to add to anything!  This week I decided that I wanted to spice it up a little bit.  I had a meatloaf in my mind, but when I got to looking at recipes it wasn’t really what I wanted.  So, I just made it how I wanted and crossed my fingers that it would come out okay.  And it did!  It was delicious and I will definitely be making it again.   more “Tex Mex Turkey “Meatloaf””

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”
