I’m a little embarrassed to admit this, but I don’t have the best health with it comes to my mouth. I was told that my body produces more plaque then the average person, so I go in for cleanings and check ups semi-annually. I have never received a “you’re teeth are awesome” praise. It’s usually along the lines of “too much plaque”. That’s all about to change with Philips Sonicare!
Today I say goodbye to my early – mid twenties and I’m feeling a little bittersweet. I’m usually pretty excited about birthdays, but this time around there was a little bit of dread.
I consider myself to be fairly knowledgable when it comes to health and nutrition. I do a lot of reading for my own personal development and to help others with my “fit biz”, and I’m also thinking about taking it a step forward and enrolling in school to become a nutritionist. I like to educate myself about nutrition as much as possible, and there is always something to learn about. I recently learned about ancient grains and the basic benefits they provide.
I have been seeing a lot of mug cake recipes floating around Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook. The idea is great, a single serve “mug of cake”, however a lot of the recipes are higher in calories then a regular slice of cake! I’m really into protein mug cakes, they keep you full and don’t have the added calories that flour based ones have.
I’m a snacker, I don’t eat just three big meals a day – I like to space it out and have six “mini meals” a day (or six big snacks). Snack ideas are not always easy to come by, especially when I require protein to be a key ingredient most of the time.
I’m really enjoying the 21 Day Fix workouts, it’s something I’m planning on continuing even when I’m finished round two of The Fix. I searched the web and found some of the workouts that you can take with you for an “anywhere workout”.
Yes, you read that right RAW apple pie and no, I have not lost my mind. I swear! Just trust me on this one.
I just completed my second week of the 21 Day Fix. It was a really tough week, and I was worried that my 21 Day Fix results would be compromised. Here’s what happened and a little more about the program:
It’s Monday, which means I have officially completed my first week of The 21 Day Fix. Here are my thoughts, feelings and (more importantly) what I ate.
