And I do love kombucha!!!!! I could drink on that all day long. If my house was bigger and warmer I would totally make my own to cut costs hahaha.

I am on a mexican kick tonight so I pulled out my tortilla press and made a batch of tortillas :) Tastes so much better than packaged ones. I might cut them up and bake them into tortilla chips :) I forgot how easy they are to make once you get the dough just right! Tired of counting calories, measuring food and just want to enjoy what I eat because I know it is much better for me than store bought foods. Once summer gets here these tortillas are gonna go great with all the vegetables and fruit! I am also now a beachbody coach. This should be interesting lol

Must admite I have never tried kombucha and I wouldn't even know where I would get hold of it, sounds interesting though.

You have just inspired me... I might cook something Mexican tonight. Mmmmm, beans!

I will be eating Mexican again tonight because I will be making tortillas again to go with beans and broccoli. I believe you are going to have to become a kombucha master hahaha. I couldn't find any store that sells it but you might hit up the health food store or you can order a starter kit and try making it at home. Which is what I wish I could do if my home was climate control.

Snow day.... still snowing supposed to get up to 14 inches of snow :( It honestly doesn't look like much but I was out shoveling and it was at least 6-8 inches deep.

Need to get me some weights for at home at this rate.... Round 2 of massively heavy snow. Cardio is taken care of with shoveling since I am the only one who can shovel..... stepdad broke his wrist and it would kill my mom and sister with their heart problems. Ready to be outside in warmer weather working in the yard instead. I keep hearing the snow slide off the roof falling to the ground with a nice thud, even have some thundersnow... Training is kinda hit and miss with the weather being the way it is and feeling really crappy. Satellite is out so can't even pull up a tv channel that has workouts :( BOOOOOOOOOO.

I am feeling spring coming on so I am now on a mostly raw diet as if today. I do believe my body is much happier right now. Don't have a lot of fresh local produce yet and need to approach trying to eat bell peppers again. Haven't liked them yet but will see if my taste for them has changed. Had a fruit salad an hour before training and felt awesome!!!!! Usually eating before bogged me down. I brought a big mixed green salad for my lunch and have access to bananas and apples if I am still hungry. I still might add in beans and rice for a nice super filling salad on like legs day since my appetite is through the roof on those days.

Feeling really good with all the raw food I am taking in! Have a fruit salad in the fridge chilling waiting for breakfast :) just ate a mexican salad with black beans cause it just sounded super amazing. I tried a different salsa and wow love it! Thinking that once I wake up in the afternoon I will start documenting my meals and workouts again. Keep myself on track! BTW NOT fan of kale in a salad.... love it better in my green smoothies!!! Not sure why but to me it tastes so much better in my smoothie..... Hey as long as I get greens in it is all good right??
