My Favorite Smoothie Recipe

Happy Tuesday (that feels like a Monday, right?!?)!  I don’t know about y’all, but I over-indulged a little this weekend!  Look, I’m all about balance.  It was a holiday weekend and Lance’s birthday, so I let myself drink some wine and eat some desserts.  And eat some Mexican food.  Haha.  If I have over-indulged, I make sure to get right back on it on Monday (or in this case Tuesday).  So I’m starting the week off sharing one of my favorite smoothie recipes. 1 packet Isagenix Vanilla Chai Dairy Free Protein Powder 1/2 cup Trader Joe’s Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk 1/2 cup water 1/2 cup frozen blueberries 1 scoop Catie’s Greens Powder Dash of Pumpkin Pie Spice Ice Combine everything […]

Stronger U Q&A

Today I’m sharing with you a little more about the Stronger U diet, and why I chose to go this route.  I also have a Q&A with my coach to answer questions you may have! First I’ll tell you what brought me to Stronger U.  I KNOW I’m not ‘fat’ or even ‘big.’  But I am the quintessential example of weight creeping on slowly over the years.  When I was younger, I could eat whatever I wanted (within reason) and stay the same weight.  That was me my whole life: I didn’t have to fight to be skinny; I was just naturally thin.  As I’ve gotten older, I have found that I can’t just eat whatever I want.  But I […]

Eats Lately

I shared my typical, weekly grocery haul from Trader Joe’s on Monday (you can read HERE), so today I wanted to tell you some things I eat in a typical week! You may have read my post a few weeks ago that I am doing a macro-tracking diet called Stronger U (you can read about that HERE), so I don’t usually make recipes, but instead I cook a lot of different things separately that I can build into meals (and easily track my macros).  I will update you soon on how the diet is going (in short, I’m obsessed).  Today I’m going to share some things I eat regularly.  I definitely tend to eat the same few things over and over!  […]

Trader Joe’s Haul

Happy Monday!  Did everyone have a nice weekend??  Ours was super relaxing.  We watched some Netflix (we are watching The Killing right now), grilled out with some friends, gave our pups baths, and spent Sunday biking and brunching.  The weather was gorgeous here this weekend! Is anyone else obsessed with Trader Joe’s?  I pretty much go every Monday morning and it’s so relaxing to take my time shopping when it’s quiet in there.  I love seeing what other people pick up at Trader Joe’s, so I wanted to share my typical haul with you.  I tend to pick up the same things week after week, so I’ll break them down by category.  Later this week I will share some things […]
