Hiya & Happy 30 Days til Spring! So as of today, this countdown is legit. No more messin' around. What did you do today to get that body movin' and shakin' !? Remember, summer bodies are made in the winter and I hate to be the one to keep on reminding ya, but your cold, winter days of bundling up and hiding are numbered. (thank goodness!!) It really is a beautiful thing that each and every day, you wake up and you have the opportunity to start over. In my amazing yoga class on Sunday morning, my instructor started & ended the class with a quote that I just completely fell in love with and want to share with you all...I'm of course paraphrasing this, as did my yoga teacher. "You can choose to make your body a vessel of happiness or a vessel of misery" I mean, how true is this!? Personally, I know that I have made the choice in my life to make this body, this temple that I've been given, a vessel of Happiness. What's your choice? #truth
Brekkie of Scrambled Eggs, 1 whole, 2 whites & Brussels Sprouts + Plain Oatmeal
Midi Snacks: Fresh & Dried Fruits...
gala apple, papaya, dried mango, mulberry & Goji Berries
Dropped into Whole Foods to grab a latte, grilled chicken breast & made this mix box of goodness. Quinoa, carrots, roasted butternut squash, eggplant & peppers. I ate 1/2 the chicken breast & half of this mix of veggies pre workout and saved the other half for post workout.
Dinner was this salad & meatloaf! MMMM That does it for today's eats, moving on to my gym sesh...
