DIRTY 30 DON’T STOP UNTIL DONE

So working out everyday has just been a habit that I don’t like to miss ever.  It’s one of my best habits..:) So I’ve been fighting this cough where I can’t hardly talk in the mornings but it gets better so I keep going. I believe you’re supposed to rest but I always feel like when you sit around you’re just wasting your day away. So I decided I wasn’t feeling 100% but decided I would do a 30 minute workout wow I forgot how Dirty 30 is..lol

Autumn always has a great saying in the beginning of a workout today it was “DON’T STOP WHEN YOU’RE TIRED STOP WHEN YOU’RE DONE”..it may sound weird but when she says stuff like that I keep thinking keep going so I guess it works out for me pretty good most the time. It’s not easy but the payoff makes it all worth it.:)

I have a few pictures of  the workout:

• Cursive Lunge

•Squat Press

•Push-UP row

•SWORD PULL LUNGE

•SQUAT ROW

•LUNGE ROW CURL

So that was some of the moves your repeat and I believe there was 4 rounds. It was great I will be doing it again. The great reward after the work that I can’t wait to have is my delicious Cookies & Cream shake perfect for after workout. I always love refueling my body with the best nutrition.

Cookies & Cream IsaLean Shake contains a delectable fusion of flavors from crunchy chocolate cookie bits atop rich, creamy vanilla goodness. This refreshing shake is the perfect partner to help me crush my transformation goals!

If fuel was measured by flavor, Cookies & Cream would score an all-time high. This 240-calorie meal replacement is loaded with 23 essential vitamins to help boost my days and contains:

  • A superior branched-chain amino acid profile.
  • 24 grams of high-quality undenatured whey protein.
  • Active enzymes to ease digestion.

LOW-CARB PANCAKES

As I learn more about life I realize how important breakfast is. I love my protein shakes  but sometimes I love to have other things for breakfast. Its going to be a long day for me today. I need to think and get stuff done I have a full plate today so I wanted a good breakfast so I had 1 bacon & Keto-pancakes, with Maple SYRUP so good.

Putting the right things into your body early in the morning helps keep you balanced all day. Skipping breakfast can leave you with blood sugar roller coaster. Getting breakfast in the morning hormonally can be very important practice. Try eating early see if that makes a difference. When Tristan from primaledgehealth first said to do this I was like no way..lol..But actually I have been trying it for awhile it has helped me so much. I’m not hungry till lunch time. It takes time if your not use to eating a hour after you get up I’m still a lot of times not that hungry but when I eat I’m full and don’t even think about food again until lunch time or later.

Some of the things you might not know about Lakantos LOW-CARB PANCAKE & WAFFLE MIX  is they are PLANT BASED*KETO*GLUTEN FREE*HIGH FIBER who wants all the sugar? SUGAR-FREE KETOGENIC BREAKFAST. Don’t overload with carbs when you can have these delicious pancakes smothered with sugar free maple syrup. Keep your glycemic low by having low carb breakfast.  The maple syrup from lakanto is sweetened with monk fruit*SUGAR FREE*LOW CALORIE*LOW GLYCEMIC*ZERO AFTERTASTE.

Then I do a workout today I did Total Body Core which it totally does. Having a busy schedule sometimes you’re looking for a 30 minute workout and that is what I was looking for today. Do you believe in yourself? Yes I do. Is it easy? NO-It’s not supposed to be. Its hard but yet fun at the sametime. To change your body you have to change YOUR MIND. I added a few of the moves I did today. Have A Happy Monday!


Eating Healthy Can Be Overwhelming

So I’m catching up life gets to busy sometimes. I’ve been doing different workouts and yesterday I decided to do an hour of AAA from 80 day obsession that is always a challenge but yesterday seemed to go really good. Using resistance bands, weights, & sliders I always think I’m not going to finish this but I usually always do then I pat myself on the shoulder and say good job!:)

IMG_4237

I been going back and forth to 80 day Obsession and MAX OUT INSANITY which is a challenge that when you do this workout MAX OUT you use your own body for the equipment. That is a challenge and Shaun T sometimes don’t give you a very big break which is alright it last for 30 minutes and then its over. Here is a picture of tricep pushups: Always taking my e+ & Amped Nox before every workout.

In order to do the workouts I do I got keep my nutrition right. So I love cooking healthy recipes and eating right. Last night I made my husband and I a steak and Green Chile & Bacon Cauliflower MAC N CHEESE so good you can find the recipe here  I’ve made it before and it goes really good with steak. Trying to think of things to make that are healthy and fast are overwhelming sometimes. I love making homemade breakfasts today I made  Blueberry Scones which if you have blackberries that works too. This recipe I’ve made and its quick and easy you can find the recipe from The Ultimate Guide to Low Carb by going here check out Jessica’s recipes she has so many good recipes. I find myself going back to her recipes and making more things. Also if you’d like to learn or get coached about Keto her husband Tristan and Jessica are great to learn everything you need to know go to: https://www.primaledgehealth.com/shop/?wpam_id=16 to learn more. It can be overwhelming all the stuff on the internet if you don’t know who to listen to or if its going to work? I found them when I was researching on different foods and lifestyles and I kept watching Tristan’s youtube videos he made so much since I could relate to. It finally wasn’t so overwhelming and when you take a class with them they will help you through any problems you are having at least they did for me and many others. Here is a picture of my Green Chile & Bacon Cauliflower MAC N CHEESE I took the picture a little early before it really melted together but it is so good. IMG_4892

PACARI, WORKOUTS & MORE

So some days are good and some days you might just struggle on your workouts right? I know lately I’ve struggled some days. But I don’t give up keep pushing you’ll get there. I did the whole 80 Day Obsession and I loved it I still go back and do a little obsessed like today I did Total Body Core its only 30 minutes but wow is it still gets me how it can be challenging.  What I  like about it you burn fat & build muscle everything we want as we get older right? Plus I like this one because it works your core as well.

So anyhow I’ve been doing some cooking lately and yesterday I made the meatza pie just like I’ve been talking about oh so good. Here is a picture of it I didn’t use all the meat had some left over and I’ll use that for other things. You get a chance go here and check it out.

I got something new in I’m excited to tell you all about it PACARI CACAO it actually is from Ecuador. When you try Pacari cacao you are experiencing the highlights of what makes Ecuador so special – clean, organically grown food from small family farms. 

Cacao offers many nutritional and life enhancing benefits
It is loaded with antioxidants (40 times the amount as blueberries), iron (the highest plant-based source of iron), magnesium, calcium, and selenium. Cacao can also provide a boost in energy and has been known to elevate mood and relieve depression. Cacao products are great sources of healthy fats and may mildly suppress appetite due to the function of MAO inhibitors.

What they offer:
  • 100% and 101% cacao bars – great for taking on the go, traveling and eating after any meal
  • Cacao Power – add to smoothies, cakes, cookies, homemade chocolate bars and even steak rubs
  • Cacao Butter – a source of healthy fats in ketogenic chocolates, cakes, piecrusts and homemade skin care lotions, balms and butters
  • Cacao Nibs – use to mimic chocolate chips and add a crunchy texture to low-carb smoothies, keto flatbreads and homemade ketogenic chocolates
  • Cacao Paste – Replace low-end bakers chocolate with high-quality cacao paste in any recipe. Or just eat it straight from the bag!

 


Rainy Days Are Good For Cooking

Yesterday was a beautiful day. We knew we were going to get some rain so I started brainstorming what I would be cooking because well most of us when we are home all day we want to snack or eat stuff you know when its rainy and you can’t go anywhere.

I wanted to make sure I had a plan. So I quickly started looking at Jessica’s recipes from Ultimate Guide & Ketogenic Edge Cook book.  I love her cookbooks you can find here so yesterday I made the Ketogenic Brownies so good! I love knowing every ingredient going into your recipe less guilt right..:) Plus I put on the Dairy Free Keto icing you can also find on their site by clicking here . I’m super excited about making lunch today I’ll be making from Jessica’s cookbook Deep Dish Keto Meatza Pie.. Which you can check their site out here. I’ve just been experimenting and seeing which recipes work for me and my husband and see if they will work for us. What works for me might not work for you and what works for you might not work for me..So anyway my whole thing is to eat healthy meals and live a healthy life and as long as I feel good I will keep doing what I’m doing today its rainy but life goes on getting ready to do a workout which will be Tabata Power and I think I’ll have time to do a ab workout as well. What do you do on a rainy day? Do you read do you workout? I try to keep as busy as I can so I don’t feel like its a lazy day. Keep moving is my thing you sit you don’t want to get back up. Have a great day! Be sure to check out Jessica’s recipes she has some great ones. Also if you have the time watch some of Tristan’s videos he has so many good points and it helps you understand. I know I was overwhelmed with some of the foods but they cook more like what I like knowing every ingredient that I put in my recipes makes me happy. I put her brownies and Meatza pie in the pictures click on them to go to their site.

 


A Little Ginger goes along ways

I love cooking new things. I’m always making new recipes and if we really like them I repeat the recipes. Today I made Ground Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry  it was so good. I love the flavor of all the different vegetables, & spices but sometimes I get carried away with the ginger I love it my husband says sometimes I get carried away.. but this dish he did say he really liked..YAY! Making this for the first time smelling all the different vegetables as they saute, adding in all the spices I was so excited for this to be done. Following all the instructions this turned out to be one of my favorite recipes next to Mamas Best Meatballs those are in the fridge for later..there’s so many more delicious recipes in The Ketogenic Edge Cook book go check it out here. Once you start cooking these recipes you’ll want to keep going. Especially when your family enjoys them.

SAD ITS COMING TO AN END OR IS IT?

So I finally got in day 78 Total Body Core tried yesterday but when you know your body is saying you need to stop you stop. So today I was feeling better and push through it. Boy did it work the core you feel it everywhere hince Total Body. Anyhow getting through this was quite the challenge today but I did it 2 rounds. The sad part is its coming to an end we have almost done 80 days wow. I’m seriously thinking about doing it again. I feel sometimes by doing it over maybe you can do it better, know more how to balance, stand, lift and everything. A few pictures of our moves using resistance bands. It was a challenge but every time I have to smile and say I did it. Of course before I started my workout today I did do a eshot to give me energy through the workout.

So for the equipment we used weights, sliders, & resistance bands I feel it what a great workout! Tomorrow will be Cardio Core so we will get to work our core more who don’t like working their core. I highly recommend to anyone to do the 80 day Obsession if you’re looking for an everyday workout. I will take some time off and probably do some other workouts and yes probably do the 80 day again I believe

DAY 72 TOTAL BODY CORE

Today was day 72 of 80 Day Obsession I can’t believe I’m almost all the way through. I believe I will be doing the 80 day again just because I love the different muscles it works.

Taking the best nutrition  is how I got through this I love Isagenix. Through this 72 days working out 6 days a week has taught me alot you can’t just workout without eating right. I have watched what I eat everyday eating clean is the only way to feel amazing.

Today we did Total Body Core 2X15’s working everything challenging the core and maximize strength gains and calorie burn. Getting my heart rate up makes me happy to know I’m having calorie burn. Using Weights light, medium & heavy, resistance loops, strength sliders was truly a total body workout. I love working the abs feel like everything is getting challenged no regrets. Is it hard? Of course it is challenging or I wouldn’t like it. Challenge yourself everyday a little further and see how far you can get.

Helping people is what I like to do the most when I can help people lose a few pounds or slim down by just giving them some pointers and they let me know how much it has helped makes my day. Helping a friend out right now just pointed a few things they could do different and they called me to tell me their clothes are already fitting better.:) That makes me happy. Feel free to message me if your needing help.

First picture is showing all the total body workout equipment, 2nd picture is my post workout strawberry shake 

 

 

 


Working FOR PIE

Today was booty I’ve had to take it a little easier until I heal. But I have a few days after today. Anyway I decided the other night why not make a pie. Not just any pie though SUGAR FREE APPLE PIE so good without the guilt sugar free, zero aftertaste plus my family loves it..

IMG_3480.JPG

Everybody likes a sweet now and then so why not make something that didn’t take me that much time. I’ve made this Sugar Free Apple pie before so good.

One reason I workout and walk is I love working off any extra goo that don’t need to be there. After my booty workout to have my shake that fills me up till lunch time. Make sure you prep or have a plan otherwise when you get hungry hard telling what you might eat because you want it now if you’re like me. I try to think about lunch ideas, dinner ideas before the week so get your list ready and prep and then you’re ready for the week.
