well not exactly a manic of a Monday but I decided to play on my last post “Sunday Funday”
If you have no idea what I’m referencing you live in a box and need to click on this link 😉 😉
now you are more versed in the wonderful era we call the ’80’s
So today I woke up with residual headache from yesterday. I woke up and did my new morning routine and felt better.
Today, in an attempt to make my protein shake better I added my sealicious omega fish oil to my shake. It is flavored with lime (only one I found) and did find it masked the taste a bit. I think the chunkiness is coming from the coconut oil. It is solid at room temperature and so when I put my almond milk from the fridge into the blender the coconut oil just stays solid. It’s unappetizing having chunks and the top of your protein shake but I’m determined to make it better. Ill try and warm up the oil and use room temperature almond milk.
I started work at 12 today so I had time to make lunch and dinner. With last nights fail and rice casserole I was determined to make this batch work.
Lucky for me I succeeded.
Ill post the ricipie here:Click me 🙂
It was quite good.
I packed zucchini sticks and almonds for my snacks and the rice dish for lunch and dinner.
I was finding myself really hungry soon after eating lunch and dinner. I have to make sure to pack some more snacks. When I got home I had steamed 3 carrots (cut in sticks) to eat. It was about 8 and was not planning on eating this late but I had to. As Im writing this I’m still really hungry. I’ll find a good balance eventually.
Today was a good day Overall. Although Ive had a migraine, failed attempt at rice casserole and always hungry I’m optimistic. I know this will go away and I will be so much better. I am One lucky gal and I’m so thankful for the love and support from my family and friends. My loving Mother reads all my posts and emails me about them as soon as she reads them. It makes me happy that she takes the time to read what I write and get caught up with what I’m doing. I’m blessed to have her as my Mom.
My mom was also my inspiration to knit. She knits a lot and is very good. Last mothers day I taught myself how to knit. As a mothers day surprise I knitted her a set of dish clothes for her kitchen. Since then Ive found joy in knitting. I have not done it in a while so today I picked up my knitting needles and am starting to make a coffee cozy. It helps me relax so this is what I did for myself today.
This is the perfect start to you day. Its delicious and healthy!
I got this recipe from the “Living the g.i. diet” by Rick Gallop
This recipe is good for multiple servings. I like to combine 1/3 cup of the muesli with 1/3 cup of water the night before and let it sit overnight. In the morning I nuke it and add milk. You can also boil 2/3 cup of water with 1/3 cup of muesli the morning of which ever you prefer. Keep in an air tight container for up to 1 month. Continue reading →
So a friend of mine had said to me that the hardest part of becoming healthy was thinking of healthy things to eat.
Its so easy when your so used to the same things and same old routine. Its hard to crack and think “outside the box”
This Month I’m going to be sharing some recipes for different meals that are healthy AND tasty.
Everyday I will post what I’m doing and cooking for myself to become a healthier happier person. Now I work 6 days a week so If I can cook all these items (and post them) there is no excuse for you to cop out and head to Wendy’s. I challenge you to follow with me and try these recipes out. they are easy and practical.
You CAN do it!

Helpful tip for this challenge came on Day 8
and day 13
Most of us drink coffee, tea, and or pop at least once a day, most likely more.
For those of us who drink more than one cup of a caffeine beverage (especially coffee) it’s important to cut back. There are lots of tea’s that are actually good for us and pop should be cut completely so I’ll just keep this post mostly about coffee.
decrease or eliminate sugar from tea and/or coffee
so many of our foods contain added sugars and we always seem to add even more because we are so used to the taste. (I’ve got the biggest sweet tooth).
I’m not sure about you but I cannot cut sugar out completely….I may actually die with out chocolate and
BUT… Continue reading →
I am extremely passionate about fitness and health & wellness.
I’m a dance teacher (among many diff. jobs) and have my BCRPA certification in group fitness. Over these past few years I have been reading more and more about safe training for different types of fitness and nutrition. The more I read the more I saw ad’s and claims such as “flat abs in 6 days no exercise required” or “shed fat by cutting carbs”. A bit of schooling and common sense had me question these claims. Is this true? Can this happen? How? This cannot be possible!
The more I read the more I believe there is a simple solution to looking and feeling your best……
CONSISTENTLY Eat Clean and Exercise.
So simple we overlook it.
No one EVER should cut out any food group. Eat the amount of calories you need to maintain or achieve your goals and exercise everyday.
Now I’m sure your thinking ya right whatever who has time for that?
I bet you that with a little time management (which ill give you pointers) you can eat clean (and taste yummy) and exercise everyday, even with kids!
So I challenge you to follow and join me in my journey to become healthier and build a lifestyle that works!
I will post exercises for both the gym goers and the stay at homers. Ill give you tips for time management so you can maintain. I will also post some yummy clean recipes for you to try.
So stay tuned as I will post as often as possible. I will post about the challenges and triumphs just to keep it interesting.
