OK, so I made these yesterday as part of my food prep day (we’ll get to that in a later post) and they are delish! My kids loved them and they make for a great meal, paired with brown rice and some steamed veg.

I battled a really nasty sinus infection this weekend and am just now pulling out of the fog it created for me both mentally and physically. I did feel better yesterday, but there was still no motivation to hit the gym and train my legs and back. Thank goodness for my biggest fan and supporter--my husband! He came home from a long day at work and still drove me out to the gym and supervised my workout to make sure I got it done! I did get it done and as a testament to the effort I put in, DOMS decided to really rear his ugly head this afternoon . . .
Hi all!! I expect many of you are enjoying "Spring Break" with your kids during this month. I am headed into Spring Break next week...so I thought I'd take some time while I have it to give you some news!!
Hey guys! So, I know for some it's really hard to figure out WHAT to eat right? Below is a sample (and simple) daily meal plan that will get you started. Enjoy and remember: nutrition is 80% of HOW you look but 90% of HOW YOU FEEL. Need energy?Meal 1 (within 1 hour of waking): 3 egg whites + 1 whole egg , scrambled with no oil. 1/2 cup steel cut oats cooked in 1 cup water, add your choice of fruit (up to 1/2 cup) and sweeten to taste if needed.Meal 2: 20 almonds and 1 large apple
You control the awesome power of your thoughts. And with your thoughts you can successfully visualize yourself into action every time, painting your own masterpiece everyday. Be the 'master' designer: creating, formulating and executing those exciting thoughts into action. Think + Action = Results!

Do you workout like a dog but don't see results??? Then you should be taking a look at what your eating. Even though working out stimulates your metabolism- making you eat more throughout the day, don't fill up on empty calories. Your body needs nutrient dense calories to fuel your body and help you see results quicker! There are many "excuses" why people reach for empty calories: Time, money, and the biggest excuse = "I deserve this after my tough workout"
I am looking for a few good people to pass along my profile and blog to anyone ready to make a lifestyle change/makeover. Most you you are on this journey and the changes have been nothing short of phenominal. Now it is time to bring someone else along for the journey. Contact someone right away, let's get together and start a new trail!!!

Blessing We are all great rivers flowing to their end. Swirling inside us is the silt of ages and creatures and lands and rain that has fallen for millions of years. All this makes us cloudy with mud, unable to see God. As we struggle for clarity and the open sky, the Lord keeps saying the same thing: Come to me now and be blessed, Come.

As a personal trainer, I'm often asked what I eat. I think most people would be surprised when they looked in my pantry. Sure the clean eatting supplies are there, plenty of nuts, whole grain flours, oatmeal, flax seeds, healthy oils, whole grain breads (sometimes homemade) and granola bars (always homemade), honey, agave nectar, maple syrup, dried fruits, chicken stock, quinoa, brown rice, different pastas (whole wheat, quinoa, etc), onions, potatos and other root veggies and a few other natural food products. But you'd also find chips, cookies, fruit leather, cra
