I can tell you it is super simple but needs more flavor so you have to play around with it. I want to make a put of navy beans and corn bread. I am making it at work and it sounds so good

So a friend planted a seed in my brain and another friend watered that seed. I am seriously considering doing the Warrior Dash this year..... I need to decide by this weekend so I can switch my training around if I decide to do it. Any thoughts anyone?????

Nancy, I did the Warrior Dash! It's SO SO FUN and actually not as scary as it sounds! You'll knock it out of the part! If you need training ideas or tips, get at me PLEASE! You'll basically be hooked if you do it- just a word of warning! XOXOX

I have seen the videos and know I need to training so I can do it gracefully:) plyo and running are going to be my weakness

Water, fertilize, and shine the sun on that seed! And watch it grow into a mighty strong plant/tree!!!

My one day off from work was a busy one..... I did all my shopping and I hope made enough food for the week. I am sure I did just always worry that I don't. Everything is gluten free (getting sick of gluten free btw.....) but I miss my wheat products especially my ezekiel bread!!! I made baked mac and "cheez" with veggie pattie, spicy sweet potato chili with cornbread muffins, sloppy lentils minus the bun, baked potato bites, roasted asparagus and spicy green beans with mushrooms. Was going to make some rice pudding but it is to late now and I am to tired. I really wish I could get 2 days off again.

Breakfast (my treat day and I woke up super hungry)
cinnamon roll
green tea
chedder and herb scone

Lunch
3 pieces of gluten free veggie pizza (homemade with gluten free crust, daiya cheese, spinach, onions, mushrooms and black olives with garlic and herb marinara sauce)

Supper
3 pieces gluten free veggie pizza

Post workout
8 oz almond milk
2 scoops protein powder

Turbo kick: 50 mins
Chest/biceps
Dumbbell fly: 3 sets 15 lbs 20 reps, 3 sets 15 lbs 15 reps
Dumbbell chest press: 3 sets 20 lbs 20 reps, 3 sets 25 lbs 15 reps
Straight arm pullover: 3 sets 15 lbs 20 reps, 3 sets 15 lbs 15 reps held the dummbell wrong and arm almost popped out of the socket.... didn't like that feeling. doesn't hurt and isn't tender but teach me to do that again
1 arm preacher curl: 3 sets 12 lbs 20 reps, 3 sets 15 lbs 15 reps
Preacher hammer curl: 3 sets 15 lbs 20- reps, 3 sets 20 lbs 15 reps

Hi Nancy,

How's your tummy treating you these days?! Seems like you're doing better but I wanted to check and see how you were doing with that!

Enjoy your day! xo

Haven't had any problems in a couple weeks now. I am achy from my arm trying to pop out of the shoulder socket last night. I have the day off from weights but will do what I can in yoga to stretch it out some. was looking in the mirror last night and realized I need to take a new pic lol. I do look a little skinnier. Got into a size 14 jeans yesterday!!! When I started out I was in a size 24/26 depending on the cut of the pants. Now in a size 14/16!! I gotta remember slow and steady wins the weight loss race
