Weekday meal prep :) salad with iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, mozzarella, walnuts, blueberries and Dijon balsamic vinaigrette. I find that these salads keep well for 2-3 days in the fridge. 2 green, 1 blue, 1 orange, 1/2 purple for 21 Day Fix #mealprep #21dayfix #salads

Wow... Wasn't feeling it this morning, but pushed through and got a double workout in! Chisel Cardio and 15 Minute Glute Chisel. I'm feeling much better now, and ready to tackle my to do list today. πŸ’ͺπŸ’• Discipline is a muscle too - use it or lose it - and mine has been getting stronger! If it's something that's easy for you, it doesn't take discipline. Discipline is when you don't want to do so but do it anyway, and the rewards are incredible. Having discipline in one area (like clean eating and working out) not only strengthens that area, but helps improve discipline in other areas too (like time management and finance). I thought I was just getting healthier, but this fitness journey has improved every aspect of my life. What area could you use more discipline in? Would extra accountability help?

Gluten free peanut butter cookies today. 😍 Dangerously good! - 2/3 cup oatmeal (quick or old fashioned) - 1 teaspoon baking soda - 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon - 6 tablespoons coconut sugar (or light brown sugar) - 1 egg - 1 cup peanut butter Preheat oven to 350 F. I used a food processor with a dough blade, but this can also be mixed by hand. Mix the first three dry ingredients, and then stir in remaining ones. Form into small balls (about 1.5 tablespoons each), and squish down onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, and let cool on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to a rack. #nomnomnom

Wow... As I'm planning Hudson's 5th birthday party (!!), It's crazy to look back at what life was like at his first birthday. While Hudson has changed so much into an awesome young boy, I look at myself and I see a stranger. I was deeply depressed, feeling imprisoned in an abusive relationship, struggling to even face each new day. I am so thankful for my family and friends who didn't give up on me. A few months after Hudson's first birthday, a pharmacy school friend of mine held my hand and invited me to a challenge group. As I started investing in myself, through working out, clean eating, and spending a little time daily in an encouraging group, I grabbed control of my life back, and chose to change paths - one that led to a bright future instead of destruction. I now have my health, an amazing marriage, a home that I'm not afraid of being in, and a lifestyle that I would want for my child someday. If you are wanting to do something good for yourself and try a different path, please let me know! There is a new challenge group starting later this month, and I'd be happy to hold your hand along the way. πŸ’•
