Meals – Day 7 Sunday

Hey guys!!!

How has your 90 day challenge been? Mine has been AMAZING!!! I have been adding my cardio and weights back into my plan and my energy has been THROUGH THE ROOF! I have not felt this good in a LOOOONG TIME!

My meals have really been quite the same so I wont be posting every single day (unless you want me to!). Instead, I was thinking of grouping them together in a few posts per week.

So here they are!!!

Breakfast has been my oatmeal with protein powder during the week – this has become my favorite way to start the day!

This morning I switched it up and had 2 egg whites + 1 whole egg, kale and asparagus. And topped with Cholula Hot Sauce! It was amazing!

Snacks have been fruit ( apples or banana usually ) with nuts if I feel I need the extra fat. Because I have been upping my protein, my cravings have disappeared and I stay fuller longer.

Lunch and Dinner has been about the same – I will alternate between shakes and salads. I buy a few produce items and eat them until they are gone. Then I will mix it up!

salads

My salads have a mixture of veggies and protein – either beans or chicken. I love adding dried cranberries and feta to my salads for an added taste!

Left – romaine lettuce, red onion, shredded chicken (6 oz), cherry tomatoes, dried cranberries, feta, olive oil and dried basil.
Middle – Cabbage ( I am addicted to cabbage! ), red onion, cucumber, avocado, shredded chicken (4 oz) and hot sauce.
Right – Sautéed kale (pre-cooked then cooled), brown rice, chickpeas, sweet potatoes, sunflower seeds, dried basil and cayenne pepper.

shakes

Left – Almond Milk/Water, frozen banana pieces, peaches, spinach and protein powder.
Middle – My “Love” Shake!! Almond Milk/Water, strawberries, protein powder and a scoop of cocao powder! This is my favorite!!!
Right – I had this shake after a workout. This was my love shake again!

And someone likes my shakes just as much as I do! 😉

My music has been ROCKIN at the gym! I get so fired up when I hear a great workout song! These have been getting me fired up!

And who has updated their iPhone? Do you love it or hate it?
I happen to LOVE the new ios7!!! It’s like getting a new phone without buying a new phone!

I took some time to focus on reflecting today. I was sitting by the fire, looking into the flames and really having a heart to heart chat with myself. I attended a training seminar this weekend and I have been HIGH on ENERGY since the training! It was such an amazing experience! I was able to hear so many successful stories about individuals who took action and CHANGED their lives, lost weight, became healthier and are now living a positive life! I also connected with so many positive leaders! Simply amazing!!

Since then I have been really digging deep and facing my fears, overcoming my own obstacles and recognizing my strengths. As a coach, I have to do this, too! – To become a better person, a stronger leader and to reconnect with my passions and dreams! – You have to ask yourself WHY every single day! WHY are you doing this?  WHY does this matter? WHY?

Why? I am so blessed to be apart of so many health and wellness transitions and I am so grateful for each and every individual that I have made contact with! YOU are my inspiration! This is what I was born to do – to help others change their life and help them become healthier, happier and more positive!

Have questions regarding my 90 day challenge? Leave a comment below! I would love to hear from you!!!

Meals – Day 3 Wednesday!

Hey guys!

Today was the BEST day so far!

The past few days I will admit I was craving that bite ( or 3 ) of dark chocolate at night or the fresh baguette with hummus, but today I had ZERO cravings! I must admit this is the most protein I have consumed in a LONG time. From my protein powder in my oats and shake, added beans and meat to my other meals and upping my water, I feel the best I have felt in a long time!

And it’s official – I am eating my protein oats every day now! As much as I love them, I will be switching it up and eating egg whites on the weekend.

I declare this my Official Breakfast!

IMG_2187

I was busy today and didn’t eat lunch until 1:30. In between phone calls, I munched on my sugar peas!

IMG_2224

When I FINALLY took lunch, I made a Green Goddess Shake! This beauty had peaches, spinach, banana, ViShape Protein, Water and Almond Milk!

IMG_2226

Tonight I took the time to cook and meal prep. Last night I had cooked off some chicken breast pieces and tonight I cooked off some asparagus and broccoli. Remember: to succeed is to plan!

IMG_2232

  IMG_2237

I quickly made a chicken salad for dinner. It wasnt pretty but it sure tasted good! It had romaine lettuce, 1/2 cup chicken chunks, 2 teaspoons feta cheese, dried cranberries, parsley, cayenne pepper, red onion and olive oil.

I hope you all had an amazing Wednesday! Check my blog tomorrow for my new eats!

Meals – Day 2 Tuesday

Tuesday is done!
I felt AMAZING today with my eats!

I started the day with my protein oats again!

IMG_2211

1/3 cup organic oats with a scoop of my ViShape Powder and black coffee. I never used to eat oats as they seemed to go right through me and not keep me full. Now that I am adding my protein powder, they are sticking with me! And they taste AMAZING! I am LOVING my ViShape!

IMG_2213

Snack was a ripe banana! Did you know that I have never like bananas? Yup! NEVER! Over the past few months though, I have forced myself to eat bananas and now I eat one a day! But they have to be SUPER RIPE! Lots of spots!

IMG_2216

I came home and quickly mixed this salad together – it was similar to last night’s dinner. Romaine lettuce + dried cranberries + 1/3 cup chickpeas + 2 teaspoons feta + red onion + red bell pepper + frozen peas + basil + dill + olive oil. YUM!!! I NEVER add dressing to my salads – I always drizzle olive oil with dried herbs and pepper. When I add feta or gorgonzola this adds salt and flavor, too!

I started to feel a little nauseous at about 4PM today which was very strange. It felt like I was car sick – headache, sensitive to light, dizzy… I am not sure where this came from or why. I sipped a little 7-UP to calm my stomach which helped!

After I started to feel a bit better I went to the grocery store to buy veggies and protein!

IMG_2219

A full fridge is a happy fridge!

IMG_2220

I write my shopping list down for you tomorrow – it’s getting pretty late here!
But it included lots of produce (asparagus, yams, apples, spinach, bell peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, parsley, melon), lean ground turkey, organic chicken breasts, quinoa, millet, beans, frozen peaches, oats and eggs. There was some stuff for Jordan, too!

As I put away my groceries I sipped on a shake.

IMG_2221

This purple beauty had blueberries, strawberries, frozen banana, ViShape Powder, water, almond milk and peanut butter. I didn’t finish it all so I saved it for in the morning.

I also consumed 2 liters of water today! YEA!

I was going to head to the gym this afternoon but as soon as I started to feel sick I knew that would have been a bad idea. I am hoping tomorrow that I will be back up in the gym! I cannot wait!

There have been SO MANY of you contacting me about my program and sharing your thoughts and insight. Thank you ALL SO MUCH! This means more to me then you realize!

If you are wanting more information on my program or would like to say HI, please contact me!

Goodnight!

Meals – Day 1 Monday

Happy Monday!

I wanted to quickly post my meals and snacks today. If you have been following me on my facebook page or instagram account, I have been posting some of my meals there. Ever since I mentioned that I am going to start training for  body/bikini competition, I have been getting massive amounts of emails and messages asking me about my food, fitness, etc.

I am so happy that so many of you are curious and wanting to know what I am doing!

I am planning on learning with all of you since I am just beginning! I have been researching my booty off this past weekend, too! I think the most complicated part is nutrition. I haven’t picked a competition date out yet so I am not going to be super strict about my diet but I am definitely cleaning it up! No more bites of chocolate, frozen yogurt runs, etc. I am eating more plant based protein and I will also be eating lean meat. Not all of the time but I will incorporate it a few times a week – turkey, chicken, fish.

Here are some of my rules that I am starting to live by:

  • Eat small, frequent meals during the day (5-6)
  • Drink water! I am aiming for 3 liters – 1 gallon
  • Limit my salt
  • Meal prep daily and weekly
  • Cardio + weight training is a MUST!
  • Start measuring my food – I have never measure my meals so this will be a challenge!
  • Schedule my day! Include times for my cardio, weights, meals, family time, work, etc.
  • Be very conscious about what I am doing – always have an answer to the WHY!
  • Ask for help! Weights intimidate me so I will be asking for help!
  • Always strive towards my goal! I am constantly looking at contest pictures, reading stories, researching and visualizing! This is SUPER important for me!

I am giving myself the next 90 days to lean down, tone up, practice good eating habits and to mentally prepare for the next step!

Here is the food that I consumed today:

IMG_2187

*When measuring your oats, measure dry. Not cooked. I use 1 packet of organic instant oats with a scoop of Vi Shape protein powder. Heat for a minute or two.*

IMG_2191

IMG_2193

IMG_2200

* My salad was a few cups of chopped romaine lettuce, 1 teaspoon of dried cranberries, 1 teaspoon of feta cheese, chopped red bell pepper, chopped red onion, 1/3 cup garbanzo beans, a sprinkle of cayenne pepper, dried basil and a splash of olive oil. I added a small dab of coconut oil to my sweet potatoes along with cumin and black pepper. *

I didn’t go to the gym today – I will be starting my cardio weight training tomorrow! Eeeee! 🙂

During dinner I sat in on a team call, took notes, drank my water and wrote out my my goals! It is so amazing when you love what you do in your life! Even the stressful times seem not as stressful because your heart is just bursting with passion!

IMG_2202
This is a HUGE step for me! I have always wanted to compete and to be in the best shape of my life! I am ready to take the challenge, push myself to my limits and start taking action! Always go into something whole heartedly!

Leave your comments below! I would love to hear if you have competed! OR what has been your biggest physical accomplishment?
