It’s My Fault He Cheated

This Particular Friday In September wasn’t different from any other Friday. I walked in, ready to begin our session. She is prepared to take her life back, and losing weight will give her the confidence that she needs to do so. We started off talking and catching up on how her morning was, making a list of what she ate the day before and making sure she took in enough calories. Which was one of her main problems these days. She worked out a little too much and didn’t replenish her body enough. That’s where I come in as her voice of reason.

Enchiladas The Keto Way

Sometimes I lie in bed thinking about food and what I should make for dinner the next day. Did I mention that I’m full when I do this? As you all know I love Pinterest and that is my go-to spot to find awesome meals.

Well, just the other day I stumbled across a real beauty. I look for low carb meals to prepare for dinner. So, I mostly rely on Keto recipes. But I have to either reduce or eliminate the cheese on the desired meal.

I always add more carbs to my meals for my family. So after I remove my portion I will then continue to prepare their dish. For instance, I added black beans to the enchiladas and then wrapped the mixture into soft shells. For my Pescatarian I added meatless sausage and all of the same ingredients below.

Once you get used to preparing 3 separate meals for everyone you will move quickly through the kitchen.  A sense of pride will come when you discover a multitude of ways to prepare the same meal that will please everyone.

Okay 4 ways to eat this

  1. Over a bed of lettuce
  2. Over Cauliflower Rice
  3. Soft shell or hard shell taco
  4. Meatless Sausage

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Pound skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 Onion
  • 3/4 cup Enchilada Sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 Avocados
  • Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 4 ounceGreen Chile peppers
  • 2 Tbs Coconut Oil
  • Iceberg lettuce or your choice of lettuce

Non Keto Add in

  • Black beans
  • Soft tortilla shell

Pescatarian Add in

  • Meatless Sausage separate pan

And all the same ingredients listed above

In a large heated pan add coconut oil and sear both sides of chicken breast. Remove from pan and add onion enchilada sauce water and green chili peppers add shredded chicken thighs back to the pan or keep them whole.

If using meatless sausage cook it the same way and at the same ingredients.

Next the choice is yours. Choose one of the four options or all of them. 😁

Crowded Places

Never really reacted to well in a crowded place. Following behind others hopes and dreams, afraid to be seen as an individual or different if you will. Living behind the shadows of the ones that I admire until they disappoint me with revealing their own insecurities and guilty pleasures. During their reveal, you realize their human, nothing special. Just a mediocre gutless, spineless, mortal that too chooses to hide in crowded places. So I advise you to step away from the crowd and find out who you are.

I remember being a kid and looking up to and worshiping this one individual. I can’t even put into words how I felt when I saw them fall and burst into flames right before my eyes. Their ashes fell to my feet and I gently stepped over them and made a promise to myself. I swore that I would never feel that level of disappointment again. I distanced myself from all crowded places.

Working on you becomes satisfying and complete when you separate yourself from all the unnecessary noise. Some may view you as reclusive but really you function more effectively without drivel. Once I evacuated from the crowded place I could breathe and see all the perfections that I carry. I stopped telling myself that I’m not good enough, but I’m worthy. Crowded places will have you guessing your self-worth and hesitation becomes your companion. Until you remove yourself you can’t help but compare and compete. Which, in return will more times than not end in disappointment. But with space, you will learn that the best competition is you vs you.

With self-growth and maturity, crowded places are just that. Crowded and leaving you without room to grow into being your own hero.

I’m Crushing On ME

Hey, you sexy, gorgeous, sophisticated, well-educated love muffin!
Who me?
Yes, you!
OKAAYYYY then……HEYYYYY!

What if you woke up every day and looked in the mirror and said;
“Damnnnnn girl, you are fine.
You just woke up and have bed head but still killing the game.
You are one sexy Lady!”

Can you imagine if you said this? Your day would be fantastic. But chances are you are doing just the opposite. We have a terrible habit of being so hard ourselves. Continually looking at fat that we want to lose or hair that we wish was different. The list is never-ending.

So as of today, I demand that you STOP!!! Be your own Women Crush Wednesday and then choose to crush on you every single day!

Don’t wait to be somebody else’s crush when you can be your own. I love when I see women that are bold and know that when they walk into a room…they own it. Be the kind of woman that isn’t intimidated to take a seat at a table full of powerful men. Know that you are their equal or superior. Don’t let anyone take away your voice and self-worth. I am a huge believer that you are as strong as you believe you are.

I’m a visionary, dreamer, and an optimist. It took me years to get this way. Once upon a time, I would get so furious when I saw someone looking at me. I automatically thought that they were thinking something gut-wrenching about me. So I would give them the glare of death and well its safe to say if they were thinking something positive they weren’t anymore.


I became exhausted from this way of life, and I knew that I needed to inject change immediately. I started to love myself and remove self-doubt. I know that I’m intelligent, I’m a good person, and I would give anyone the shirt off of my back. I stopped fantasying about changing my view of myself and wanting to be the type of woman that I admired. I started to repeat the following to myself and I now do it on a regular basis:

I will always and forever…………

Be that woman
Be that bold
Be that brave

Be your Woman Crush EVERYDAY but since it is Wednesday…claim it!

Happy Woman Crush Wednesday
