Facing My Fitness Fears with WIP & grace+GRIT

For me, getting into shape is this lofty goal that always lingers and seems so difficult to attain. Some people sign up for a gym, team, or class, make the commitment, and have no trouble staying pretty consistent. Myself on the other hand, I know what to do, I know how to do it, but I just can’t seem to actually do it. If this sounds like you too, I want you to keep reading!

Before You Feast…Refresh | Easy 7 Day Challenge

Thanksgiving is almost here + I cannot wait!! I haven’t seen my extended family in months [which is so unusual]! My Aunt is an incredible cook + always makes the most delicious Thanksgiving meal. ūüôā I’m already dreaming about turkey, side dishes, and the millions of desserts I intend to inhale. Before diving head first into my plate,¬†I want to take a little time to do something good for my body.

Time For Some Healthy Eats!

I am coming off of a month (or so)-long food bender. I don’t know how¬†or why, but I’ve been a total savage. I haven’t made an actual grocery store run in weeks and¬†I’ve spent far too much time going through¬†drive-thru’s and ordering take out. I had a little “get yourself together” moment¬†over the¬†weekend and have spent the last couple of days¬†working to get myself back¬†into a¬†good, healthy zone!

Get back to the healthy carts!
Time to start eating the rainbow (and Yasso bars ūüėČ ) again.

Quick & Easy Late Night Meal

Do you ever have one of those nights where you have a million errands to run after work, you finally get home, and before you know it it’s 9:00pm and have yet to eat dinner? That was me last night.

Of course the last thing I wanted to do is cook, ¬†or settle for something totally unhealthy, so I scoured the fridge for ideas…

I wanted something to bite (you know what I mean? Sometimes a salad just doesn’t cut it); so I created this amazing pizza-esque concoction…

1 mini bagel (2 halves), toasted

1 Laughing Cow Garlic & Herb cheese spread

2-3 Cherry tomatoes, sliced

3-4 Arugula or spinach leaves

Salt & Pepper

This tasty, mini late-night meal…paired with some fresh cherries hit the spot!

Do you have any quick & easy use-what-you have recipes? I’d love to hear them! ūüôā
