Lean, Mean, and Squeaky Clean Challenge – May 16th, 2017

Good evening Peaches!

Sorry for the absence! Do any of you ever go through times where you have to just be quiet for a while? Well, I was going through a time like that last week. Thank you for bearing with me and I hope you all have been well! How was your Mother’s Day? Here are our pictures from church and look at these adorable pictures of Sarah and her boys Declan and Grayson!

I actually stayed on track with my eating all weekend and had my one cheat meal of eggplant parmesan on Friday (which was delicious!) Since my challenge group began, I’ve lost 7 pounds! Then I woke up today bright eyed and bushy tailed at 1:45 am and as the very long day went on, ended up eating too many carbs and too many nuts. Because that’s what you do when you finally break a weight loss plateau right? You take the day off and eat what you want. Haha! Anyway, it is what it is. Moving on.

This morning was a very early session on extreme yoga.

Questions:

Do you ever need time to just be quiet?

How was your Mother’s Day?

What did you eat today?

Exercise?

I am very much looking forward to hearing from all of you! I missed you ladies!

Good evening my fair madens!

Lean, Mean, and Squeaky Clean Challenge!

I can’t believe I didn’t share with you my latest baking fail last night!

IMG_20170509_153643_191
Cookies, not meat.

Well…….what had happened was….

We started out making slime.

But then I shared it on Facebook and was quickly notified that I was likely burning my child’s skin….

So we cleaned everything up and decided to bake sugar cookies instead. The only thing is, I don’t have any sugar in the house and I can’t bake! Like, at all!

So instead of white sugar I used organic light brown sugar which I use for Jason’s oatmeal. Then I made sure to check the recipe backward and forward because the only powdery ingredients it called for were baking powder and baking soda. Aren’t cookies supposed to have flour or something???

Anyway, that’s what led to the amazing piece of work you see above……

Onto today’s food and workout.

My food was almost the same as yesterday, I just had oatmeal instead of quinoa for breakfast and lunch. My workout was yet another humbling session of Extreme Pilates.

Questions:

What was your worst cooking fail?

What did you eat today?

Exercise?

Until next time!

Lean, Mean, and Squeaky Clean Challenge – April 30, 2017

It’s Sunday and it’s the last day of the month!

I love when the first of the month lands on Monday, DOUBLE new beginnings!

Ok let’s huddle up and get our heads in the game. What is your goal for the week ahead?

Lean, Mean, and Squeaky Clean Challenge!

In the comments section the past few days Sarah, Anne, and I have been discussing going one week sugarless. Let’s do it! I quit sugar back in October and have not looked back once because it feels SO amazing! It really is the sugar (and our society) that makes you think we need the sugar! I remember writing this postย ย and being so nervous. I didn’t even share it on social media or anything because I didn’t want too many people to see it in case I failed miserably. Quitting isn’t for everyone, but for those of us that it IS for, life is so great without it, the thought of adding it back in is literally nauseating.

IMG_20170430_132824
Just say NOOOOO to the M&M propeller bunny!

So now that I have made every sugar lover feel terrible, anyone up for a sugarless challenge? Haha!

I will post my food in the comments with all of you later. I wanted to go ahead and get this up so we can all gear up for the week!

Questions:

Wanna go sugarless for a week?ย 

No problem of not, what is you goal for the week ahead?

Any exercise today?ย 

Happy Sunday yall!

Hey everyone!

I’m back!

How’s everyone doing? Good I hope! But if not, the good thing is that you can just jump right back in. ๐Ÿ™‚

Lean, Mean, and Squeaky Clean Challenge!

Today I finished The Master’s Hammer and Chisel!!! Yay! No break though, jumping into 21 Day Fix tomorrow. I finally figured out how I will do the containers while keeping a vegan diet.ย If you don’t know what I’m talking about, the 21 Day Fix is a Beachbody program where you use a portion control container system for your meals and then do the 21 Day Fix Workouts……..for 21 days haha. I will of course keep you posted on how this goes. Portion control is definitely not my forte.

 

Today’s food! This is not the 21 Day fix stuff, I am starting that tomorrow. Workout was The Master’s Hammer and Chisel: Hammer Power. All done!

 

Questions:

Are you good with portion control?

What did you eat today?

Any exercise?

Have a great night everyone!

Good Evening Fair Madens ๐Ÿ˜‰

I meant to share this with you Sunday but forgot. Check out Jason’s second weekend cheat. We went out to Applebee’s Friday night and that was supposed to be our cheat but then Jason decided he was going to cheat on Saturday night too. Here is his cheat “meal”. It’s amazing.

  • 6 cheese sticks (the breaded ones)
  • 4 blueberry Eggo waffles with syrup.
  • A chicken bisquit
  • Huge bowl of Fruity Pebbles
  • Powerade Zero haha!
  • Strawberry Banana V8

Haha! I laugh but I’ve totally eaten meals like this…….pizza and donuts come to mind…..

In another life of course….. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Lean, Mean, and Squeaky Clean Challenge!

Tuesday! How is everyone doing? I think everyone is feeling better? Melanie I know you said a stomach bug hit your house. Ugh, hope everyone is doing ok now. xoxox

So you know my nutty “cereal” (berries, nuts, almond or cashew milk). Well Anne’s been eating it and she sent me this pic….

SLICED ALMONDS!

I usually use whole. So today when I was at Costco I got the sliced ones and cherries!!! I have been craving cherries for literally weeks. Cherries + Sliced Almonds = My snack for the next several weeks ๐Ÿ™‚

So good!!! I love the texture of the sliced almonds. And I just love that pic of Anne with her kombucha haha! It has nothing to do with the snack.

Here’s my food and workout! Workout was MHC Hammer Conditioning.

 

I hope you all are having a great week!

Questions:

What is a crazy cheat meal combo you’ve had?

What did you eat today?

What did you do for exercise?

Alright y’all, it’s the last week of the month. Let’s do this! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ‘Š
Whether you have had a good month or a bad month let’s make this week something amazing. It is tempting to want to wait until the 1st but don’t. Start now. After the first will be Easter, then after Easter will be May 1st, then after May 1st will be Father’s Day, then after Father’s Day will be the 4th of July and so on and so on and so on.
Do your very best with what you have where you are RIGHT NOW ๐Ÿ’›

Here is Anne’s pic of the Kombucha that we both love. Since I quit sugar, I have to make sure to read the label because some of them do have it but there are quite a few that don’t! The Lavender Love and Strawberry Serenity are amazing! I haven’t tried the others yet.

Anne also found these chips that are just potatoes, salt, and coconut oil if you are looking for a cleaner cheat!

Here’s my food! I know, shocker.

Today’s workout was ISO Chisel Strength from the Master’s Hammer and Chisel. Only 9 more days left of this program!
