Sunday Funday: Boozy Protein Shake & The Importance of Self-Care

You’ve probably noticed the lack of posts the last couple weeks.  Life gets in the way. While I’ve personally been spared the illnesses going around, not everyone at work has and it has left me picking up extra hours to pick up the slack. It doesn’t hurt that my pursuit of my NASM certification has… Continue reading Sunday Funday: Boozy Protein Shake & The Importance of Self-Care

Random Thoughts: Why New Year’s resolutions anyway?

So how was your holiday? Quite frankly, I haven’t celebrated anything. I only have a seafood dinner with my family on Christmas Eve, and skip Christmas Day in favor of quiet (as opposed to 2 overwhelmed screaming kids at my sister’s house).

While I now eat relatively healthy, a protein bar of some sort is a part of my nightly snack. And one… Continue reading Review: 3 New Quest Bar Flavors

Random Thoughts: Physique Update & Thanksgiving Dinner

First things first: Happy Thanksgiving! I took this selfie Sunday afternoon. I’m sitting, pre-Thanksgiving dinner, at 119.4lbs…5.4lbs over stage weight. I’m eating 2100 calories a day except on days I scuba dive, when I eat to satiation – which may mean 3500 calories if I feel especially carb-depleted. I can definitely recognize that most of… Continue reading Random Thoughts: Physique Update & Thanksgiving Dinner
