WIAW: 2-Day Cleanse and Supplements

If you took the Don’t Be A Turkey challenge, congratulations! You made it! I got through the 2 day cleanse with only a teeny bitty bit of cheating. I ate some Wasa crackers with my lunches both days since I’ve been so sick and needed the extra nutrients. The 2 day cleanse definitely works as promised with helping you feel lighter and more energized. I woke up this morning surprisingly deflated and feeling less bloated and heavy than I have since before Thanksgiving. For those of you that took the challenge, how did you do? Did it help you feel ... Read More »

Weekend Wrapup: Thanksgiving in Miami

Hey there! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend! I’m glad I got to see friends and family that I hadn’t seen in a while. I hadn’t realized how much I missed everyone, since I’d been so distracted by my new city.  When it came time to leave, I realized I really didn’t want to go. On Friday afternoon, I met up with Troy at the gym and killed it on leg day. After, we went to dinner at Ale House, and it was nice just to catch up and see a familiar face. I spent  all weekend eating leftovers, so getting in as much ... Read More »

Cleanse Fail & Cardio Win

Day 1 of the 2-Day Cleanse went well, for the most part. Day 2, not so much. To give myself a little credit, this is the second time I’m doing it, and the first time I stuck with it all the way. Yesterday started out great with breakfast, lunch and my two allotted snacks. After work, I went to the gym and could barely get through Insanity without feeling dizzy or seeing stars. I rescind what I said yesterday about being able to do the cleanse and sticking to your normal workout routine. If your normal routine is something as ... Read More »

Smoothies, Cantinas & Exercise Balls!

It’s only 2:30 and it’s already been an eventful day of ups and downs. This morning I could barely wake up since I got such terrible sleep last night. I’ve had this pain in my left shoulder, mid-trapezius area for a few months that comes and goes. I always chalked it up to sitting improperly at work, but last night it came and stayed all night.  I finally crawled out of bed with no time to squeeze in a workout, even though I promised myself I’d make up for not doing anything yesterday. Since I didn’t have time to make ... Read More »

Dig Deeper With Insanity

(Not so) Happy Monday, everyone! I always have such a hard time getting out of bed Mondays, so I like to start my day with a protein, vitamin and fiber-rich breakfast. Today’s breakfast was a green smoothie and a power waffle. My green smoothie today consisted of: 1/2 banana 1/4 cup pineapple 1/2 peach handful of spinach 1/2-3/4 cup almond milk ice to fill This power waffle was just what I needed for my Monday morning boost. This little miracle meal takes only 5 minutes to make and will get your through the first half of your day. I used ... Read More »

Why Does Bad Food Taste So Good?

I ate cake last night. And when I was about to go in for a second helping, two of my faithful friends called me a whale at the exact same time. So no cake seconds for me, which is a huge accomplishment considering I’m usually unstoppable with dessert. Ironically, every time I eat cake or ice cream or anything with a lot of sugar or dairy, I get really sick. My stomach gets all knotted and I get nauseous and groggy and have no motivation to go about my day. But it’s so tasty, so against my better judgment, I ... Read More »
