In a mad dash out the door this morning on the way to my hair appointment, I threw together this delicious waffle raspberry combo! I was so thankful that I made extra protein waffles last week and froze them!
Having some extra pre-prepared meals on hand definitely comes in handy with a busy schedule. If it wasn’t for my excess of protein waffles, I would have only had a fruit smoothie for breakfast.
My metabolism is too high to survive off of a fruit smoothie for more then a couple hours, so this protein waffle was really a life saver!
I was watching Mulan this morning while making my morning fruit smoothies, and I totally got inspired by this scene!
If Mulan can climb a pole with two huge penny looking weights, we can DEFINITELY push ourselves out of our comfort zones on the next few reps of push ups!
Getting out of your comfort zone is how you’ll start seeing changes in your body. Pushing yourself beyond what your body is used to, is how the tone and definition will begin to appear. If you never try anything new, and always stick to your same routines, chances are- your body will stay the same too.
Want to see change? Work for it.
This is an AWESOME little chart I found on Miramountlifestyle.com.

Those nutrition labels aren’t there to look pretty.
My boyfriend Bryan is in the Marines- and even with his busy schedule, he still finds time to make smoothies! He texted me this picture of his all natural green smoothie that exploded all over everything, and I couldn’t help but laugh and put it on my health blog.
Don’t forget to close the lids on your blenders everyone!
Be inspired by Bryan’s incredible ability to find time for smoothie making throughout his 11 hour work days in the Marines.
If he can wake up at 5am everyday, and still have time to eat healthy, you can eat healthy too!
…I’M BOUNCING OFF THE WALLS!
After being addicted to caffeine for so long, and then giving it up cold turkey all at once- I decided to have a Caramel Macchiato today at Starbucks (as I type this post).
OH MY GOSH I can feel my blood sugar rising, I’m typing at 84987249874985 words a minute, and I feel like I have so much energy I could do a few laps of Kart Wheels around San Diego!
Not going to lie though, on top of that I feel really shaky and can kind of feel a head ache coming on.
Tomorrow, I’m anxious to see if I wake up craving caffeine since I had coffee today, or if I’ll wake up and not crave it at all. If I don’t crave it tomorrow, that means I’ll officially be over my caffeine addiction, which will be a BIG deal for me.
For now, off to do some Kart Wheels and Super-Speed-Blogging hahaha
Has anyone else struggled with caffeine?
This is a very simple Fitspirational concept- if you’re used to unhealthy eathing habits, then when faced with choosing between chips and an apple; chances are you’re going to go for the chips.
But what if you eliminate the unhealthy options? Then your choice becomes an apple vs a cup of fresh strawberries. Either way, you’ll end up munching on something nutricious!
Check out this awesome shopping cart full of food. My boyfriend is a Marine and he eats really healthy EVEN THOUGH he lives in the barraks on base.
College students listen up- if he can eat healthy on base; you can eat healthy in your dorms. NO EXCUSES.
Needless to say, from the looks of this shooping cart- it’ll be a Fitspirational week!
Portabella Mushrooms, Caramalized Onions, and pesto oh my!
I had an absolute BLAST creating this masterpiece. These gourmet grilled cheeses are the most delicious things that will ever touch your lips.
Click here to get the recipe for my pineapple strawberry peach carrot smoothies. The savory flavors of the mini-grilled cheeses mixed with the natural sweetness of the smoothies, reflects a perfect flavor of summer deliciousness.
As a huge fan of the office, I couldn’t go another minute without posting Dwight’s huge face on my health blog!
Lifting weights is NOT going to make you huge ladies. This is a common misconception that I get asked about quite often. If you’re on a bad diet, and you just can’t seem to keep your hands off Mr. Ben and Mr. Jerry (if you know what I mean *ehem ICECREAM ehem**.
If you balance out a healthy diet (with protein/fruits/veggies) with a solid workout plan, you’ll EARN your way to the body of your dreams! Lifting weights is NOT going to make you big, but lifting weights without training might. If you’re really worries about this, please message me and we’ll go over your exercise routine together. A good cardio mix with strengthening exercises and weights will actually lean you out.
Whats the worst that can happen? You might just end up with a fabulously it body. Oops 🙂
