Sunday Funday: Playing catch up!

Well, I haven’t been on since right before Christmas, so I hope you all had a fantastic holiday!!!! 🙂

Anyway, we had a very blessed holiday season. Not only because it was the holidays and we got to spend time with our family, but because our family is growing! That’s right. We’re expecting a new bundle of joy this June!!! 😀 We chose to wait to share the news with everyone because we had quite a bit of trouble getting pregnant this time around.

Okay, onto other news. I still want to keep posting my meal plans on Mondays, but my fitness/workout posts will definitely be different now that I’m doing pregnancy workouts. :-p

So, I hope you are all well, and I hope you will all hang in there with me and my posts. 🙂 Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Wacky Wednesday: Kids in the Kitchen

So I used to do a Wellness Wednesday post, but I thought this would be a better post instead. I’d love to post something random each Wednesday. Hence the name “Wacky Wednesday!” It will be anything from wellness, health, to kids recipes and activities. I think it’ll be a really fun post because it’ll be differenteach week! 🙂 Anyway, this week I decided to make a kids recipe post. My son absolutely LOVES to help me in the kitchen, and I love coming up with different, fun, yummy recipes we can make together. AlthoughI dont have a picture, this is one of his favorite things to make. 🙂

ENGLISH MUFFIN PIZZAS

Ingredients:

    • English Muffin of choice. (we use Food for Life)
    • pizza sauce
    • shredded cheese (we like mozzarella)
    • your favorite toppings such as lean sausage, pepperoni, and any veggies, like, peppers, black olives, broccoli, mishrooms, tomatoes, etc.

Directions:

1. Toast your English muffins.

2. Spread on pizza sauce.

3. Sprinkle cheese on top and add your toppings.

4. Put on cookie sheet and put into broiler for a few minutes, until cheese is melted. 

Enjoy!!

 

 

Motivation Monday: Reach Your Goals.

Well, are you doing whatever it takes to reach your fitness goals? Why or why not? What’s holding you back? Is it lack of motivation or accountability? Do you need help or advice? I began my blog to help people reach their health and fitness goals, and I feel like I’m really not doing that. I’d really love to start a group like the one I had that helped me become successful with working out. If any of you would be interested in joining a fitness/nutrition accountability group, please let me know. Comment below or shot me an email at sarasmith722@yahoo.com. Can’t wait to hear from y’all! 🙂

Take Care,

Sara

Fitness Friday: 5 Reasons Working Out At Home Is Better Than The Gym

1. You Don’t Have To Care What You Look Like. Seriously. You can rock whatever look you want. Unbrushed hair, mismatched workout clothes, you name it. So nice, right?

2. Never Worry About Weather. Too cold out? Snowing or raining? Don’t feel like going outside? No problem. Just go to your workout area and push play!

3. Get Your Workout Face On! Is it just me, or does anyone else make weird faces when they challenge themselves to push a little harder during their workout routine? Well, I’m glad no one but me sees it. Haha.

4. The Germs On The Equipment Are Just Yours. This is probably my biggest reason for working out at home. I just can’t  imagine touching gross, sweaty, germ covered equipment that hundreds of other people have touched. I don’t care if they “clean” it. Just yuck!

5. Pass Out When You’re Done. For real. After pushing yourself to work harder; you can literally sprawl out on the floor in the comfort of your own home, catch your breath, then fuel up on some post workout goodness.
