Tuesday we kick off our More Than Macros Retreat!! To say I’m excited is an understatement. Make sure you’re following along on Instagram! Thursday coach Amy and I will be doing a workshop titled, It Happens in the Kitchen. We’re going to discuss how we’ve found success with planning and preparing easy meals for our busy schedules. One way we’ve found success is by having a few go-to macro balanced recipes. This bowtie chicken pesto recipe is just that!
Krista’s got another recipe in the blog queue and told me she wouldn’t put it up until I wrote a post.
“Maybe write a post about self love or self care?” She texted.
“Krista, if I read one more thing about self love, I think I might vomit. Won’t do it.” I wrote back within seconds.
Tracy and I are full of surprises these days! Our men almost couldn’t believe we planned a dude trip just for them and a few friends this upcoming weekend. We actually planned the trip on Mother’s Day and really worked hard to not spoil the surprise before Father’s Day. Don’t be fooled though, we know exactly what we’re doing. Spoiling some of men of Stay Fit Mom before the More Than Macros Retreat next month was no accident. Making these bomb grilled shrimp tacos for dinner yesterday was no accident either.
First let me start by saying my kids are NOT having a screen-free summer. If you watch my stories on Instagram at all, you know that survival is the number one goal in The Gifford household. That being said, I am all about finding what motivates my kids, and using that to make them better humans.
Summer is finally here and it doesn’t even feel like it! Are you sick of hearing all us west coasters talk about the unusually cool weather yet? My husband and I are taking advantage of it this first week of summer and trying to revamp our backyard a bit. We might kill each other by the end of it but I’m hoping it’s a project we finish. We’ve wanted to build a gazebo for some time now and we’ve finally decided to make it happen. Speaking of make it happen, I’ve been wanting to share this tasty new light Italian summer salad for a while now and I feel like it’s the appropriate time. Hello summer!
At Stay Fit Mom we believe our coaching staff is second to none. Each coach has been extensively trained to implement the Stay Fit Mom macro nutrition program which has yielded our clients incredible results for years. Every client’s nutrition program is individualized based on the their own specific needs and lifestyle. The coaches each bring a unique skill set to the team, all while maintaining our highest objective. We want the best for every single client that steps into our community. Each coach has personally participated in the Stay Fit Mom nutrition program while seeing remarkable results for themselves. As you’ll soon read below, our coaches are passionate and enthusiastic about helping others, but they are also parents who are open and honest about their own struggles with balancing health and fitness while raising a family, and it’s this vulnerability that sets us apart.
Yes, letting your kids use the stove and sharp knives can be dangerous. You know what else is dangerous? Not teaching them and setting them up for failure in the kitchen. Not doing everything you can to help prevent obesity. Not sparking their interest for preparing their own food. Those things are far more dangerous in my book.
