Green Chef I have to admit, I turned my nose up at the idea of Green Chef, and all of the similar services. I really enjoy every part of cooking, well except cleaning. But the point is, the fact that everything is portioned for you, […]

Whenever I learn of someone or something being associated with my dads home country, Antigua & Barbuda, I am instantly intrigued. A few months ago my sister told me about Barnola, a great granola company. Barnola is a love note to Aisha Thompson’s childhood. The Antiguan […]
Protein and carb combos like, BLT, salad with chicken, apples and almond butter, celery and almond butter
See you later for meal prep and weigh in (bi-weekly) solo pictures are tough as the photographer and model.
I am getting that nervous excitement you get when you know something awesome is about to happen but uncertainty still lies deep. As I mentioned in the previous post, I will be chronicling a health reset as I begin to focus on the quality of the food I eat and get back into moving more than from the couch and reaching for the remote.
I am a planner, and therefore if I don’t plan, I don’t move. So I put together a plan for how I will share the progress and information. If you think you need to make a change, let’s change together, and if you don’t think you are ready, well, in the famous words of the great philosopher Bruno Mars “Don’t believe me, just watch”.
Here is the plan:
- Friday – Finalize and share recipes and grocery list
- Saturday – Cook
- Sunday – Weigh in, photo progress, and work out plan for the week
- Monday- Cardio
- Tuesday – HIIT(High Intensity Interval Training)
- Wednesday – Cardio
- Thursday – HIIT(High Intensity Interval Training)
- Friday – HIIT(High Intensity Interval Training)
- Saturday – Cardio
- Sunday – Rest
My commitment to myself is to remain focused, but not beat myself up or give up when a workout is missed or a poor food choice is made. The next post will begin this new journey.
And so it begins….
There is nothing like completions and achievement. I have successfully completed the 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse again. I decided not to make it about the scale, and completely about jump starting back into my healthy eating focus. When I say healthy eating, I mean that […]
Day 5 is complete and Day 6 begins. I started the 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse this week and I am feeling so much better each day. The cravings for fatty food have gone away and I am completely focused and actually looking forward to cooking and eating some healthy meals. If you want to lean more about the Green Smoothie Cleanse, you can visit the Facebook page where the author and nutritionist, JJ Smith shares great tips to stay on track as well as inspiring stories to keep you encouraged.
My day 4 consisted of a smoothie with kale, spinach, apples, frozen peaches, frozen mixed berries, stevia, and flax meal. Snacking on salad, and almonds and apples with almond butter.
Day 5 consisted of spinach, frozen peaches, seedles grapes, blueberries, stevia, and flax meal. Snacking on salad, and almonds and apples with almond butter.
The coming blog posts will focus on meal planning, but still enjoying the food. No plain chicken breast, broccoli, and brown rice. I think that as long as I enjoy the process and plan ahead I will be in great shape… literally. So be prepared for some great breakfast options, and snack ideas to add to your food options.
