Meal prep 101 

8 Feb

Since I posted last, I have earned my pro card in Women’s  Bodybuilding.  The next competition is April 8th, so I’m in full meal prep mode. YIKES RIGHT?? 

I’m really surprised at how easy it actually is to meal prep. Although I cussed a few times during this one because I burn my fingers on sweet potatoes….once everything is weighed and measured, there is always a meal to eat! Since I’m a good wife 😂 I go ahead and prep my hubby’s meals for work. Aren’t I sweet. 

The finished product..4 oz chicken, 130g sweet potato or brown rice and 1/2 cup greens (not pictured) 😋😋😋


New Opportunities 

7 Feb

For 4 years I have been involved with a fast growing nutritional company. It seemed fitting. I’m already in the health and nutrition field, just made sense. 
Recently I was presented with an opportunity that is pretty unique to my area. The company is called SeneGence and I decided to join! I’m nervous. I haven’t “promoted” anything other than Thrive. Four years is a long time.

Excitement beats the fear! 

Happy times…

Got to see some people that I haven’t seen in a very long time today! It was great to be able to talk like no time has passed at all! Emily and I went to high school together and we haven’t seen each other in about 7 or 8 years. We follow each other on Facebook/Instagram of course, but face to face is always different! She is about 10 weeks behind us in her pregnancy with a boy as well! I left her shower today with such a light feeling, it was a perfect afternoon! Congrats Emily and Zack!

I’m sitting here thinking..I’m one month I will be the mom of TWO boys. Am I ready for this? Can I really do this? I feel ver inadequate to handle what life will bring on June 25th. 

Then I stop myself. It will be ok. My house, my car, my life may not be as clean or as organized as it is now..but we will be blessed. The Lord has already blessed us with an amazingly smart, funny, caring, giving, precious 3 year old. There is no reason this will be any different. 

Yes. I will stumble. I (we) will fail. Sleepless nights are ahead. Liam can already sense something is changing. His needs are greater and sleep is less. Miles. That’s the new baby’s name, it means “warrior”….he has a great big brother and an awesome family/friends system already! Getting ready! Less than 6 weeks!

It has already went by so fast!! We are 20 weeks now, with another BOY!!  Yesterday I felt the first few kicks of Baby W2 (no, we do not have a name yet)…hopefully within the next few weeks.

I had to go to the maternity store to buy some jeans also yesterday because nothing fits now…the lady asked me if I was there buying something for someone else..apparently I am not as big as I feel LOL!

The gym life?

13 Feb

So, last week I took an extra step in my career. May not sound super exciting to some, but I am pretty excited about it! I have been personal training at my house for a little over a year now. It has been great and very convenient, but now that Liam is older…three…it isn’t working. So, I have taken training to the gym where I teach Zumba/Step/Bootcamp. Right now only one client, but that’s ok. Slow and steady right? I am thinking of doing online training as well.. we shall see!

Well, remember that time I said I would keep you updated on my FitBit experience? Mine broke. After one month of usage…it will not sync. I’ve tried everything that support has suggested, so don/t waste your energy trying to send me new ideas. My receipt, OH…you mean that thing that I threw away on MONDAY (stopped working on Tuesday) that has been sitting in the trash outside for almost a week in the sweltering heat? Is it worth dumpster diving in my own trash to replace? That is what I am unsure of..
