Dinner For Five Please

So yesterday was Valentine’s Day, and we chose to stay in an celebrate with the kiddos. They are attached to our hip and would have felt left out if my husband and I had gone out to a fancy restaurant without them.

But after dinner, I gave them a heads up and let them know that we will be stepping out alone tomorrow night for dinner and maybe a movie. Read More

Today I Will Clean and Make Pizzas… But First We Sip

Fridays are so fabulous in our household and not for the apparent reason. Not because it’s the WEEKEND!

Every day is a blessing to me, and I try to take advantage of each and every moment. But on Fridays, I feel even more joy.

I get to do two of my favorite things: Read More

Not Your Average Flatbread Pizza

Anyone who knows me and have hung out with me on my blog, know that I love pizza. LOVE LOVE LOVE pizza. I am so particular about it and need more than just a deep crust, I need the crust to be bursting with flavor. I want the crust to be so good that I can eat it without anything on it. For me, it should be as flavorful as a breadstick.

This Is The Day That Counts

Yes, I know It’s Saturday and you want a rest day. But this is the day that counts the most. I know that you had a full week of work and hopefully you did some type of workout every day. However, every positive action that you took towards becoming a better you can and will be undone by the choices you make today.

So many of us choose to make Saturday our day to have a cheat meal, which is totally okay if you stick to only one meal. Don’t turn that cheat meal into a cheat day. often times we will start the day off with an unhealthy option and from that moment on our body and mind will crave more sugar. So let’s start off right.

For instance, when you wake up have a healthy breakfast and then WORKOUT. When you return home to have a protein shake make this the time to throw a few greens in the blender so that you are getting your daily vitamin intake. Lastly, don’t forget to continue to DRINK WATER. I tend to stick with drink half of my body weight and if I am working out in the warm weather then I will increase my consumption.

Now here we are at dinner and you are probably ready to consume some major calories. But guess what? I guarantee that due to the wise choices that you made previously you will not eat as much as you wanted to. The body is a funny machine. Mentally you are wanting everything that you gave up during the week but your body isn’t craving or missing the calories. So listen to your body and not that hungry mind.

Make this day count and continue to make healthy choices!
