Sorry I have been a little MIA over here! Life gets all kinds of crazy sometimes, but I am back!
Last week I started Insanity Max 30. On Monday, March 6th the official count down to Punta Cana began with 48 days until I would be walking around in a resort in my bikini which meant…. It was time to get SERIOUS with not only my workouts, but with my nutrition as well. I have learned that you cannot out work a bad diet BOTTOM LINE!
On Monday I decided to start a new morning routine for ME! After training for my half marathon for 12 weeks I knew getting back into the swing of things was going to be hard, so I wanted to make sure I was setting myself up for success. I proclaimed my new morning routine by posting it on Facebook for extra accountability. Here’s what it consists of:
And it has been going AH-MAZING!!!! Okay, but back to my meal plan….

Shakeology: 1 1💜 1🔶1

Want the recipes? Here ya go!
Egg Cups: whisk together 12 eggs, throw in chopped spinach, and this week I added organic salsa. Quick and easy!
Chicken fajitas: I was inspired by the recipe here http://bchbody.life/2eedqap, but here’s what I did instead… I threw the veggies in a pan to cook and I added my chicken to the instant pot to cook. I seasoned my chicken with paprika, cumin, crushed red peppers, salt, and pepper (use whatever seasonings you like), added 1/2 a cup of chicken broth, and cooked it on the poultry setting. When I am ready to eat this for lunch I will have it with 2 corn tortillas.
Turkey sausage with veggies: I based this meal off of this recipe found here http://bchbody.life/2mgwiG6. I personally left out the green beans (they just aren’t my fav) and I did a regular onion instead of purple. Oh and I also used turkey sausage instead of chicken sausage because I couldn’t find chicken sausage at the store.
Turkey burger with slaw: This was just a last minute thrown in meal for incase I get bored of a meal or incase my meals didn’t make enough (which they didn’t), so yay for having a back up plan. I personally use “Applegate Organic Turkey Burgers” and I just cooked them in a pan. I then used a bag of coleslaw mix, 1/3 cup of olive oil, 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar, salt, peeper, and oregano. Adjust those to your likings.
And bam I am ready for week 2 of Insanity Max 30!
