Good Morning

Let’s start this day off right, with WIAW.

What I Ate Wednesday: Love Your Veggies

Thank you JENN, for always hosting 🙂

I’m going to start a little different: with DESSERT, because I forgot to post this awesome dessert the other night!

Protein Brownie for One:

And there is ONE dried cranberry in there. I have no idea where that came from!

Okay now on to some more of my favorites:

BREAKFAST:  (6 am)

If you read my blog yesterday you know I got an awesome treat in the mail.  Uncle Sam’s Cereal!

So I had to incorporate this into my meal, with so much fiber and protein, I knew it would hold me over at work for at least a few hours 😉

I also topped it with a little bit of Cinnamon Harvest, and blueberries, with an extra sprinkle of cinnamon. HOLY YUM.  If you don’t like cereal you have a problem!

Have  A Good Wednesday, Half of the week is OVER already!

Hello Readers!

I just want to start today by saying thank you for reading 🙂

I am very thankful for a lot of things today…. Let me start by saying that my family is so important to me and I love them dearly and I am most thankful for them today!   I just lost my grandma on Wednesday and it makes me think about how precious life is.

We take life for granted a lot, at least I do!  Today I want to reflect on all the things I am thankful for and be appreciative of everything I have because it could be gone just like that!

Today I want to remember the small things that I have that I don’t say “THANK YOU” for everyday, like I should.

Here are some other things I am thankful for:

  1. That my grandma is in Heaven with the Lord
  2. A Loving Savior who watches over me and keeps me safe every day!
  3. A wonderful family- husband, step son, parents, siblings
  4. A roof over me to protect me.
  5. Food and Water
  6. Good Health
  7. A steady job.
  8. Laughter and Hugs

These are only some of the things I am thankful for and I hope I continue to remember this as the days go on!

I probably will take a couple of days away from the blog world…. But I hope everyone has a great weekend!

But, The day must go on…

NEW CROSSFIT GYM

CF

I also mentioned at the beginning of the week that I was going to try a new crossfit gym.  Well I want and I loved it and these are the reasons why:

  • It was SMALLER than the other crossfit gym I went to… Only 8 people in the class I attended.  Previously I went to crossfit and the class was HUGE.  About 40 people, and let me tell you that was not fun when I had to share a jump rope with my 5 foot tall friend.  Did I mention I am 5″10??  Yea, not fun.  I have scars from the swatting.
  • More one-on-one attention.  I increased my push jerk by like 10 pounds just from learning better form!
  • Form better relationship with the trainers so they can better understand each individuals needs!
  • More fun and relaxed!

What helps you decide on a crossfit gym?

Tuesday Crossfit:

Mobility Exercises

15 minutes to find Maxium Jerk  (split or jerk)

WOD:

I was the fastest girl of the day coming in at 4:24.  Woo hoo.   This wasn’t the hardest workout I have ever done but it was fun 🙂

** I definitely need to work on getting stronger though…I have done crossfit for about a month so if I keep with it I hope to gain some more MUSCLE!

  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tbsp sugar free maple syrup

  • 1/2 – 3/4 chopped apple sprinkled with cinnamon

How its prepared:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Spray individual size ramekin with olive oil
  • Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
  • Add in wet ingredients.
