Protein Bread! It’s Good!

The large majority of the human population loves bread.  White, floury, carbo-licious bread!  I’m not a huge bread lover, but I do enjoy a piece with nut butter here and there, or the traditional PB & J.  However, I was inspired to make the protein bread you see in the picture above, because my boyfriend […]

Intermittent Fasting: A Tool Not a Rule

Last Sunday I ate a glorious Easter meal with my boyfriend’s family.  They are Italian, so there isn’t just ham, potatoes and a veggie.  There is pasta and ravioli, meatballs, pork, salad and THEN the ham, potatoes, stuffed mushrooms, brussel sprouts with bacon…… Needless to say, I ate a lot of great food.  When I […]

Lime Curried Carrots

Hello!  Welcome to 2014…on a side note, I’m finding that a lot of people are trying to deter people from New Years Resolutions…to not set yourself up for failure or disappointment.  I think it’s malarkey!  Set a goal and strive for it…it’s okay if you don’t achieve it right away or ever.  I’m sure with […]

The Aftermath: Splurging on Food, Alcohol & Skipping Workouts

Wow.  I just had an amazingly fun week with friends but it was laced with alcohol imbibing, over intake of calories and well whoopsy, no workouts. Although I had decisions during the past 5 days where I could have made better food choices, stuck to my fast or even threw in a quick workout — […]

Reality Check In: Food, Fat Loss, Gym, Sleep & Sanity

When I started this blog, one major reason was for me to share a realistic view of balancing a healthy and fit lifestyle into a super crammed schedule.  It was for me to benchmark my victories and my struggles, as well as hold me accountable.  If I’m telling you all these great “real life” tips, […]

Diet & Nutrition Myths

Diet & Nutrition Myths I wanted to share this link to an article written by Adam Bornstein for SHAPE magazine.  Bornstein is a highly regarded fitness expert and is big on making sure there is scientific data and proof to support his beliefs.  If I knew SHAPE would always have such great authors writing for […]

Fit Challenge: Food On The Go

TGIF!  This Friday marks the beginning of a girls weekend, where we will be playing in a beach volleyball 4s tournament, followed by whatever debauchery we choose.  I then will continue on the road to work out of state on Monday and Tuesday.  When you do the math, that is 4 days of traveling, no […]

Mango, Pineapple, Cake, Icing, Chocolate Chips

GAHHHHHHHHH, why are my favorite things laced with sugar?! Once a week, (usually Fridays because that’s when I do my nighttime, super-hip grocery shopping trip), I purchase a container of pre-cut mango and devour the entire thing.  Often this total destruction of an innocent fruit occurs in the front seat of my car, as I […]
