I've been a bad blogger. It has been about 10 Days since I've posted, not because I haven't had anything to say.. I've been busy on Instagram ( @Fit_Food_Goals ) and then I got derailed and I had a medical issue that I had to put some time and attention into. I made my first YouTube video and posted it Here to explain, and I'm so excited to be back on the horse and start working out again today!

As part of my new clean eating routine I had been drinking Shakeology every morning for breakfast, because that's when I was told to drink it. I've been drinking my shake around 8:30 before I start work, snack at 11, lunch at 1, and I noticed around 3pm I was getting a craving for sweets that I only get when I'm eating super clean. I decided to move my Shakeo to my 3pm snack to see if it curbed my cravings and it did exactly that! So now I'm drinking a green smoothie for breakfast - 3-6 ounces of water, banana, cup of baby kale, cup of frozen fruit blended in my quart mason jar and then I add a Tbsp of chia and shake. For those who are using the Beachbody Fix containers - which are used in several workout plans, this breaks down to 2 Purple, 1 Green, 1 Orange. It's well rounded fruit, greens, water and protein and keeps me full and fueled til lunch. I eat my snack around 11 to keep my metabolism going & I'm not counting the minutes til lunch which is great because that's what used to happen when I was doing WW or other calorie restrictive meal plans. I'm ordering 21 Day Fix this weekend because I've finished 2 rounds of Cize and I'd like to add some variation. I've been doing the 21 Day Fix Sneak Peak on Beachbody on demand and i'm ready to get started. Meal prep is key so it's great to start on a Monday, so you have Sunday to shop and prep for the week. Gonna go start my list so I can shop today amd prep tomorrow. Have a good weekend!

You can tell summer is over, the air is crisp into the afternoonand it's dark so much earlier. I'm not having an easy time adjusting to the cooler temps outside and with it being dark earlier I'm having trouble being motivated to work out. I'm still eating clean but the workouts make me feel significantly better, as long as I make sure I get them in. I chose to wake up and take our dog for a walk to get moving instead. It was wasn't as demanding as Cize is for Cardio but on the walk I realized that before I started working on my fitmess my body wouldn't have been able to handle the walk with the ease that I experienced. It was super encouraging even though I'm not exactly running a 5k anytime soon, and realistically maybe never with my lower body problems. I'm very optimistic about how much more athletic I can be once my body has less weight on it and my conditioning is built up. I'm going to try to do a P90X3 workout before bed after I get my sunday meal prep and some laundry done. #fitfoodgoals
