Today’s Reminders | Greater Mistake

I always want to give up when I know I’m tired and only can do a little, but it’s always better to try than to do anything at all. 💕

Struggles | Not Feeling Yourself

It’s been a difficult week this past week and this isn’t something I’ve wanted to talk about or share with others. I have been bloated beyond belief and nothing I’m doing to try to fix it has helped. My stomach is 5 times larger than  it normally is, my clothes fit poorly and I  have no energy nor the desire to work out.

I’m tense because of the bloating which in turn adds to my migraines issues. I know I just need to relax, but it’s nearly impossible when I feel this way. I’m constantly sucking in my gut to still feel normal, rather than relaxing so the issue can resolve itself.
This feeling has caused me to make very poor decisions when it comes to eating and working out, and I know sticking to a healthy lifestyle is even more important at times like these, but it’s hard.

The healthy lifestyle journey that I started in February has really helped me, these days are far and few between unlike they were before I started, but I do still struggle. I don’t have the answers I need to get through times like this, but I’m still doing everything I can to try and figure them out and get though it.

 

Blue Aron | Meal Prep Sunday

Good morning, everyone!

Today, I’ve gotten my butt up and out of bed to begin meal prepping. 🙂 I didn’t want to  IMG_7930.JPGstress about making the time to cook all day long, so I’m doing my best to get it out-of-the-way now.

I do want to get other things done instead, but meal prepping is the most important thing you can do on the weekends, to help you eat healthy throughout the week. I can’t stress that point enough. If I didn’t pre make my food, I’d be eating nothing but cheese quesadilia’s all week and going out to eat for lunch. Here’s just a few things I’ve made so far. 🙂

Struggles | You’re not the only one

I have been struggling a lot lately. The allergic reaction I’m having has taken absolutely every ounce of energy out of me. I can’t figure out what’s causing it and the doctors are in no hurry to help.

It’s embarrassing being out in public but yet I have to deal with it on a daily basis.  Soon I’ll be meeting new people in my job, as I take on more responsibilities at work. Don’t get me wrong, I’m VERY happy to be moving on, but my confidence level has been in the dumps lately and I’d rather just hide until the problem is fixed. 

On a positive note, I may not be allergic to Shakeology but rather the coconut milk I used to make it. 😕

Shakeology | Break Up

It’s pretty damn official. I’m pretty severely allergic to something in Shakeology. I stopped drinking it for a week and the redness and peeling in my upper lip was getting better. I decided to test it out, so I spent three lovely days enjoying that delicious shake and sure enough, the pain, ichyness, redness and peeling came right back. 

I’m pretty disappointed and very worried about what it is that I’m allergic to now. I also bought a different protein shake from Trader Joes as a replacement to shakeo, but I experienced a much worse reaction with that one. 😕 

Time to visit the doctor for an allergy test I guess. Has any one else experienced these types of issues? I had no problems for 3 months… Then it all hit me…

Shakeology, I Just Want You

This past week has been very difficult in terms of eating healthy and staying on track. I’ve had a major reaction to something and I really don’t know what caused it. I don’t know if it was something I ate, something I put on my skin, or just the dry California air.

I really don’t want to go into details, as it was completely embarrassing, but I have stopped drinking Shakeology for a full week so far, and I’m really struggling. That Shake was my breakfast and I’ve had nothing to replace it with for a week. I don’t have time to eat at home in the morning and I always just mixed the shake and ran out the door, while enjoying it on my drive into work.

I really hope this isn’t the end for me and Shakeology, as that is the best shake I’ve ever had and it really helps me feel great everyday. I’m really hoping it was something else that caused the reaction.

Anyone else ever experience side effects from Shakeology?

Mind Over Matter | Accountability Group

Back in March I joined my first accountability group and it changed my life. I do not regret the decision I made to join Amy and the Beachbody team. It helped me stay focused on changing my lifestyle and now I’m finally reaching my fitness goals. 

I’m starting my first 21 day accountability group on June 6th and I’m looking for people, who want to make changes to their lifestyle and are looking for some accountability, to join!

Please contact me for more info!

Blue Apron | I’m learning to cook!


I’m loving this Blue Apron service and I can’t talk about it enough! Not only am I saving money, by not wasting food, but I’m also learning how to cook new things I’ve never thought about cooking before in my life. Gone are the days of stressing to find a good recipe on Pinterest before the weekend. Gone are the days of trying to find a store that carries what I need and gone are the days of buying one jar of spice to use a tsp and letting the rest sit in a cabinet for years! 😄

The most recent thing I made, that I never thought I would, is a soft boiled egg. Damn was that thing yummy! I’ve never been confident in my cooking abilities in the past, but this service has given me a new found confidence that I wouldn’t trade in for the world. 💕
