New Year, Fresh Start

Since thinking up of new recipes can be hard sometimes, I turned to the archives to search for macro friendly recipes instead of trying to invent new ones. These are a few newer -and older- recipes I have been turning to during this first month of 2017. They are meal prep friendly which is a bonus when you are #busyfit and need anything and everything help make your life easier.

Mobility Workout

I swear it isn't as torturous as I made it look...unless you are super sore from #legday then it is in fact torturous...but worth it! I promise. I mean, I did it and I am just fine.

High Protein Baking Batter

Great for pancakes, muffins, and cakes- this batter is also higher in protein with fewer ingredients unlike most pre-packaged protein mixes.

The Busy Paradox

It feels as I get older or just how the world is now - IDK I am only 29 here- If you aren't busy you aren't living life...yet being busy gets in the way of living life. Quite the paradox?

 It feels like everyone is in competition or trying to one up someone else when they claim they are busy...
E.g. "You think two kids, cleaning, and two soccer games is busy? Well I had to take Tommy to work because the car needed to go to the shop. I dropped the car at the shop and had my mom pick me up and we went to brunch, which we had to rush through because Sarah's daycare is only half day. After that Sarah had ballet practice on one side of town and I had a hair appointment on the other side of town." get the picture. 

It seems the busier the better. I felt like if I wasn't moving, I was wasting time. If I wanted to do something I was always thinking about what I would have to give up. Most of the time it fell on my health first and relationships second. 

Getting back into fitness is what has made me want to slow down and just enjoy life. The whole point of me getting fit is so I have the energy to do that. So what in the world am I so 'busy' with stuff that doesn't bring me joy? WHY I ASK YOU!!??!! 

I'll tell you why. Because the busier the better. 

So I am taking this month to change that mindset.

Why I'm not doing a January challenge

Short answer is: Nope.
Long answer is: Sort of.
Did I want to? Kinda. Were there a ton of opportunities to join one? Oh my yes. Could I have created one myself? You betcha! So why didn't I?
Maybe it was to not be cliche? Maybe because most of the challenges required a monetary investment and weren't worth it (for me anyway)?

Top 6 Resolutions for 2017

With the New Year of 2017 in its infancy and the fact that I started to think about my resolutions in November, I have finally narrowed it down to 6 resolutions. Why 6 resolutions? Well I also have 6 goals, so you could say my numbers are symbolic considering 6+6=12 and there are 12 months in one year. I truly believe I can stick to these resolutions because they are actual resolutions.
