Do you know what I love most about counting my macros? I have the power to fill them with whatever foods I want. I choose to fill my macros with high quality foods, most of the time, because that’s what makes me feel best. Healthy products like Tessemae’s marinades and dressings give me the most bang for my macro buck! A little bit of their tasty dressings go a long way, as you’ll see here in my new grilled chicken wrap recipe.
I don’t envision myself lying on my death bed wishing I had built more social media empires. In fact, a few weeks ago I was with a group of women discussing what we wanted to be remembered for. Most of our answers were simple. We want our kids to know how deeply we loved them.
And so, when one of my clients asked me at our retreat what my goals were for the company, I sat baffled.
How are women like us living up to the pressure of balancing everything? We have jobs, husbands, and kids we take care of every single day. We can’t go to the bathroom alone or often don’t sit down once during the day. None of us can balance it all, and we sometimes need a break. Stepping away from the everyday grind for some girl talk and R&R can be a blessing, let me tell you!
I’ve been working on this recipe a few weeks and can hardly wait to share it with you all. I have a feeling it’s going to be a huge hit! Lot’s of protein, veggies, chesse, and flavor! You all know I’m a meal prep kind of gal so anything I can make in one pot is a life saver. No one loves to do ALL the dishes so using just one big pot makes life a little easier.
I love you the way you ARE. I don’t care what you look like in a swim suit, how much cellulite you have on the back of your legs, how many stretch marks you have, how much your arm flaps when you dance, or what the scale says when you step on it. Being a good, kind, loving person is what makes me love you. But my question is this: Do YOU love you the way you are?
The bottom line is our nutrition program isn’t for everyone. It’s extremely effective and produces incredible results, but it’s not easy. Weighing, measuring, and logging your food intake can seem burdensome and overwhelming to many. It takes patience, consistency, and surrendering instant gratification. Hearing “eat more” and “let’s focus on building up your muscle mass,” and “ignore the scale…” from a nutrition coach is something few women have ever experienced and frankly feels counter-intuitive. YET…
When Chad tested these chocolate chip protein muffins a few weeks ago and said they’d be great with some frosting on top I nearly decked him. Let me be perfectly clear, these aren’t cupcakes! So if that’s what you’re looking for, you’ve come to the wrong place. Once I explained to Chad they were a breakfast muffin he got the clue and declared them to be pretty great. Smart man he is. We just might meet our yearly quota! You know…
My pants are getting a bit snug, guess it’s time I reel things in and go on a diet to try and lose some weight. Ever heard that before? Ever felt that way before? The problem is there are more diet fads than fast food restaurant options these days and most people’s GUT reaction to losing weight is, “I’ll eat less,” or “I’ll eat clean.” But what if I told you under-eating might be doing you more damage than good, and eating “clean” might not be putting you into a calorie deficit at all?

I’m heading into 2019 with bright and shiny new goals! This is going to be my year! Not because I’ll be smashing it at Crossfit and getting big PR’s, but because I’ll be feeling rested and recovered. My most important goal this year is taking good care of myself, which for me means I’m prioritizing my recovery! The buzzword these days seems to be self care, and for me, this will be the ultimate self care!
I hope your new year is off to a great start! Our 20 Home Cooked Meals in January Challenge seems to be a huge hit that everyone is getting on board with! What better time than now to throw a new recipe out there!? I know a lot of you got new pressure cookers for Christmas, so this one is for you! Rip that shinny new pressure cooker out of its box and give this new recipe a try! I promise, it’s not going to explode on you! And if you don’t have a pressure cooker, no worries, this can be made in the slow cooker also.
