I dedicate today’s #throwbackthursday to all the folks taking on the Super Spartan this weekend in Miami. I’m pretty sure this kind of obstacle would be extra challenging in my current condition, so consider this a rain check on my behalf for next year. I’ll be back!

If you would have told me 6 months ago that I’d still be rocking plank drills and plank hip drops at 32 weeks pregnant, I’d have looked at you like you were nuts. Has it been easy? No way. Would I rather sit on the couch with my feet up? Damn skippy.  Is it worth it? UNQUESTIONABLY!!

Planks not only help support my growing belly but prevent back strain as well by strengthening all the muscles in the core.   Obviously if you are pregnant you should always check with your doctor before starting any new fitness routine. If you are planning a pregnancy in the future - START NOW! The best defense in this case is a good offense and the better shape you are in pre-pregnancy, the more likely that you’ll be able to continue those good healthy habits all during the prenatal period. 

Looking for a good program to do before & during pregnancy?  Message me and we can chat about your specific situation!

Don’t underestimate what you can achieve if you just focus and set your mind to it. I can think of no better reason to get and stay healthy than that beautiful baby!

I got busy yesterday afternoon/evening and forgot to update you guys on the rest of my eats for my 21 Day Fix meal plan for the day. I got most of them pictured, except for my Shakeology beast which I had half before workout and the other half after.

I was not hungry at ALL yesterday, and in facet had a hard time eating all this food (as is evidenced by me splitting my shake into 2 servings).  The good thing about that though is that it kept me from snacking or looking for dessert after dinner. I call that a major win, considering I’ve been wanting nothing but cupcakes lately!

So at the end of the day I was 100% on plan with all my containers and felt great. Any questions on this? Just comment below!

One of the reasons I love meal planning is that it takes the last minute (bad) decisions off the table.  I don’t know about you, but the number one topic of discussion around my workplace and home is always what are we going to eat.  There is typically a lot of debate on this and usually one of two things will happen - either no one wants to decide OR someone wants something awful (which in the absence of any healthy suggestion will usually win).  If you’ve already planned and prepared what you’ll eat for a meal, then there’s no need for debate.  The decision has already been made, and chances of a poor choice are greatly diminished.  Also in the work-day grind, this means you won’t be eating out, which saves you $$ - WIN.


Today’s lunch was incredibly easy to plan and prepare.  I had egg salad (made with dijon and paprika) with spinach on an ezekiel wrap, paired with a nice side salad (romaine, cucumbers, grape tomatoes & matchstick carrots) with homemade balsamic dressing (from the #21DayFix guide).  I noted the corresponding Fix containers in the pic so you can see how this adds up. I actually threw all this together this morning before work.  It took only a few minutes to pull out the salad fixings, chop, stuff into the appropriate color container & then dump into the blue container for travel.  I did this while the eggs boiled.  I left the eggs whole in the shell for portability, to peel, chop & stir in with the mustard & paprika when I ate lunch.  Throw it all in my cooler & I’m out the door.


This meal was quite filling, as was breakfast, so I’m pretty full at this point.  As you’ve probably noticed, I eat a lot of calories at the start of the day, then I’ll snack during the afternoon until my workout after work, which is followed by dinner.  Stay tuned for the rest of today’s eats.  Obviously my targets will be different than yours since I’m not on a deficit plan due to being pregnant - I’m just maintaining - so don’t set any expectations for yourself or your own container targets in that regard.  If you’ve got questions on any of this, feel free to ask!

Here is this morning’s breakfast, with #21DayFix measurements noted. This is a variation on the power granola recipe from Body Beast, which I eat more mornings than not.

What’s in the bowl:
1/2 c uncooked gluten free rolled oats
1/2 scoop Base Shake (flavor neutral whey)
Sprinkle cinnamon
1 purple Fix container of mixed blueberries and diced strawberries
1 blue Fix container walnut pieces

In the Shakeology cup is unsweetened almond milk, which I added to the bowl along with the half banana.  In the coffee cup is black coffee, which I’ll sip on and likely only drink 1/3-1/2 of.   I’m STUFFED!!

See, eating clean does t have to be hard!

Sending some Florida sunshine love to my friends in the frozen north. I’m taking a moment to enjoy a strawberry Shakeology mojito before heading to a friends birthday party. Hope your Saturday is this fabulous!

I have to say, never underestimate the difference a cute outfit can make in your motivation.
