Haul & Prep

Hey guys! Holy crap, it’s so hot out!! I’m glad I went to Whole Foods really early this morning before it got unbearably hot. Like a dumbass though, I did have the oven and stove on during the hottest parts of the day. I made it though and now I have lots of healthy stuff to grab for meals during the week! The only annoying thing about this morning was walking out to discover one of my hubcaps is missing. Awesome. Anyway…

First, here’s the haul:

Nectarines, parsley, chard, cauliflower, spring mix, dill, zucchini and brussels sprouts.

Dijon mustard (not a mustard fan but I’m ok with a little bit in dressings and all of the dijon I have in my house has sugar! Wth?!), dolmas in the brown box from the salad bar, brown rice tortillas, tahini, buckwheat soba noodles (I went to the closer WFs with the buckwheat soba, yay!), macro sushi, firm tofu (I miss my tofu scrambles!) and some millet.

So after I got home I started my cooking extravaganza. It got sooooooooo hot.

Roasted some brussels sprouts…

…and a ton of cauliflower.

I also finally made this Quinoa with Corn And Scallions! I haven’t tried it yet but it looks so delicious! I halved the recipe, used olive oil instead of butter and agave instead of honey. Can’t wait to try this!

I had intended on making some millet cakes today as well but the thought of standing over a hot stove for any longer made me want to cry haha. Maybe Wednesday morning I’ll go for it :)

That’s all I’ve got for today! Hope you are all staying cool and having a great Monday!

Grocery Haul & Some Answers

Hey guys! Hope you are all doing well! Today is my Sunday ;) It’s been a busy day though! I spent about an hour and a half at the allergist (more about that in a minute) and then struggled through a trip to Whole Foods. The one I go to is amazing early in the morning. No one’s around and they have a great selection. After like 10:00 it is a disaster zone with idiots running around and leaving their shit all over and standing in the middle with a totally vacant look on their face. So it wasn’t fun or relaxing like it usually is but at least I got a lot of really great stuff.

Let’s check out the haul first:

Scallions, corn, chard, brussels sprouts, onions.

I splurged on some gorgeous cherries and also grabbed a few peaches and nectarines. My mouth is watering just thinking about them. Hopefully it won’t take too long for them to get ripe.

Macro sushi (another splurge), lentils, buckwheat flour, brown basmati rice and some nooch that I added to my little shaker container :) Great prices on the bulk stuff. Definitely need to continue going in that direction for my grains, beans, and legumes.

Not too bad! I was going to do some prep but it’s so hot the thought of it is making me cringe. I’ll make my quinoa dish on Wednesday morning I think. Luckily the heat is supposed to break this weekend. We lost power for a few hours last night and it was a blessing and a curse. Obviously it was unbearably hot which led to some excessive crankiness on my end. It was also nice though because as most nosy people do, everyone ended up going to their doors to see if everyone else lost power and we ended up sitting outside with our neighbors for about 45 minutes (until the bugs started to eat us alive). Luckily it came back on after a couple of hours so we didn’t have to deal with sleeping like that.

Have you guys ever seen bracelets like these?! They come with all difference charms and in tons of different colors. There are a ton of sellers on Etsy but this bracelet can be found in this store. I’m obsessed with these bracelets and I’m determined to learn how to make them myself! However, since the one above cost a total of $12 including shipping, I decided to order it. I can’t wait to get it! I’ll be making a trip to Michael’s this weekend to try and find the materials I’d need to make my own as well :)

OK so this morning I went to the allergist. My seventh doctor in two years. For the first time I actually left the doctor with some answers! They did over 30 skin tests for airborne allergens like grass, weeds, trees, common animals, molds, dust mites, etc. Turns out I am allergic to grass and weeds (big reaction to ragweed!), borderline with trees and even slightly allergic to cats. That’s not going to stop me from hanging out with Jack and Eddie. It’s such a relief to know that I’m not crazy and I’m wondering if taking care of these allergies will help my overall general feeling of crappiness. I feel a lot of relief!

Side note: did you realize you could be allergic to cockroaches?! I’m so grossed out even talking about this but the Dr. made a joke about having a pet cockroach after he told me I was slightly allergic to cats and I was like wait what? Lol! They tested me for a cockroach allergy! I didn’t know it was possible but he said it was more prevalent in more urban areas. Apparently I’m not allergic though. I was so grossed out by the whole notion though haha.

Also, just wanted to say it’s been pretty clear that I’ve been cutting back on my posting lately. I noticed that when I felt like I needed to post every day I would have a major spike in anxiety so I decided to cut it back. My goal is to post three days a week: Monday grocery hauls, Fun Fridays and at least one post showing some meals that I ate. It’s been working out so far and I feel good about it. And if I feel the urge to post more I will :)

So that’s all I’ve got for you today!! I hope that you all had a lovely weekend and the start of the week has been a good one!

Grocery Haul and an Easy Snack!

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a nice weekend :) My Monday started off interesting with ANOTHER flat tire (WTF?!). Luckily I noticed it after like a block so I just rolled my way to the tire place a few blocks from my house, ha! It was taken care of by 8:30 am ;) I’m glad I get an early start on the day otherwise I probably would have had to wait for a while!

Anyway, I was on my way to Whole Foods at the time so I ended up getting there just a little bit later than I planned but I ended up getting a lovely grocery haul that I wanted to share with you :)

My beautiful produce haul! From the bottom left corner: Tiny potatoes, mushrooms, green cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, swiss chard, lemons and strawberries.

On the way home I stopped at Trader Joe’s to pick up those apricots because I didn’t like the way they looked at Whole Foods. A whole separate trip for one item lol. Also got some Tom’s of Maine Toothpaste.

Some sprouted raw sunflower seeds.

And finally some amaranth. Check out the price on that ;) I want to try popping it for cereal because I’ve heard it’s good! I’ve also heard it can take a while to get the hang of popping it but it’s definitely worth a shot!

When I got home I wanted to make up a fun new bar/ball/snack thing to change it up. I had an idea and I figured it would make a good light breakfast on the go or a quick snack to pop after a tough workout to re-energize. So here’s what I came up with!

Check out these beauties! Isn’t the color stunning? I thought they looked like little gems which inspired the name… Cranberry Apricot Gems. That sounds so much better than balls, right? ;)

The recipe is so simple but I thought you may like it so here it is!

Cranberry Apricot Gems

Ingredients:

1 heaping cup dried apricots*

3/4 cup dried cranberries (soaked 30 minutes and patted dry)

1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds

Directions:

1. Process apricots and cranberries in a food processor until a sticky dough forms.

2. Pulse in sunflower seeds until just combined.

3. Form dough into little balls (I used a medium sized ice cream scoop). Put a little water on your hands while rolling so the dough doesn’t stick. It may be a little tough to roll them (it may be a little crumbly) so try packing it together while forming it into a ball.

4. Place Gems in the fridge to firm up. Enjoy as a snack or light breakfast!

*My apricots were soft and luscious but if yours are a little more dry, try soaking for a half hour to plump them up.

I’m so happy with how these came out :) They are a little sweet and a little tart and have a little crunch from the seeds. A perfect little snack! I’m planning on submitting this recipe for Healthy Vegan Friday this week… my first submission in months! Yay!

I felt really inspired over the weekend and started to brainstorm a bunch of recipes that I want to try out. These gems were the first test and they came out great, I’m really happy with them! Can’t wait to try the rest!

That’s all I’ve got for today. It’s hot and humid and there has been some pretty crazy (read: awesome in my world haha) storms so I’ll probably hang out inside for the afternoon and do some reading. I hope that you are all having a great day and I’ll be back soon!

Small Grocery Haul

Hey everyone! I am just popping in to show you a small grocery haul. I decided to drop 80/10/10 because it was stressing me out and I didn’t need any more stress on top of my insane allergies. I also think Sophie was 100% correct when she said in a comment, “just do what feels right for you. It doesn’t have to have a label or be specific.” I try so hard to do everything by the book and I am missing the bigger picture. So I’ve decided to just stick to a mostly raw, low fat diet. So far it’s been working out well. No labels, no guidelines, just what I want to eat. I’ll show you a full day of food tomorrow.

For now, here’s my small grocery haul. I went grocery shopping today and I’m going to clean like crazy tomorrow.

I finally got my zucchini. Four tiny ones… the last four in the store! What’s going on with the lack of zucchini availability? I also got some collards (look how huge the leaves look! Perfect for wrapping lots of yumminess, dontcha think? ;) ), huge carrots, basil, garlic and yellow squash.

They had yummy little organic pluots so I picked some up along with Good Belly and some fresh apricots (inspired by Laura!)!

I have some yummy stuff planned so definitely check back in tomorrow for some meals. Thankfully the swelling in my throat has gone down quite a bit and it’s a lot more comfortable now. If I feel ok tomorrow I’ll try to get to the gym in the evening after my cleaning extravaganza ;)

Hope you all have a great day!

Raw Grocery Haul and Some Presents

Hey guys! Here I am with my first 80/10/10 grocery haul. This one isn’t huge because I have some frozen fruit and some fruit left in my fridge. I have a feeling I’m going to run out before the end of the week but I think it’ll take a little time to get the hang of how much to buy, how to rotate and keep as much fresh as possible. With all that said, check out what I got!

Ok so veggies first: 3 heads of romaine, green onion, 2 large cucumbers, 8 tomatoes, and a container of sun-dried tomatoes ($1.80!!). I was intending on getting zucchini and yellow squash as well but they didn’t have any (wtf?!) so I’ll grab some later in the week or next week.

2 bunches of bananas, dates ($4.99 for that big container of DELILAH(!!) dates!), 5 pink lady apples (to join a few I already have), and 4 peaches for a treat. I also have 3 pears and…

the piece de resistance…

A CASE OF 16 CHAMPAGNE MANGOES!!!! The best part of this lovely purchase? I got it for $7.99. That’s right, 16 mangoes for 8 bucks. I won’t lie, I was a little smug when I saw that Whole Foods was selling a single Champagne Mango for $1.79. Lesson of the week. Shop at the Asian Market as much as possible! That’s where I got the inexpensive mangoes, sun-dried tomatoes and dates. Yup.

So I decided that I wanted to buy myself some gifts to make this transition easier on myself :) I went to Kohl’s after Whole Foods and not surprisingly they had nothing that I was looking for. I wanted to get two of the three things from Kohl’s because I inherited a gift card from my mom since she doesn’t shop there. So I came home and ordered these two things online (photos taken from the Kohl’s website):

This is a 3-in-1 Vegetable Peeler. I wanted this one because it has a Julienne Peeler which is a great way to make zucchini noodles without a spiralizer. It kind of worked out perfectly since the store didn’t even have zucchini so I don’t have to worry about waiting for shipping.

I also got a 5-inch Ceramic Knife for chopping all of my beautiful produce! I’ve heard that ceramic knives are really great for a bunch of reasons including it’s sharpness, durability, hardness, weight (they are lightweight) and it doesn’t give your food a metallic taste. I can’t wait to start chopping with this. I should have it by next week :)

I only paid $20 out of pocket for these things which is really good. The last present I’m going to buy myself is a big salad bowl (bamboo or wood). I want to do this at the store though since I’m pretty picky and I want to be able to see the size so I’ll be getting to Bed Bath & Beyond (my favorite store ever) soon to check it out!

And before I go… yesterday my family spent Father’s Day together so you know I have to show you some adorable Delilah pics!

Chowing down on some yummy corn!!

She is so funny. She’s only two and a half and she’s incredibly smart and incredibly funny :) And of course she has the most beautiful face ever! Love this kid :)

And that’s all I’ve got for today. I’ll be back tomorrow to show you what a day of 80/10/10 looks like! I hope you all have a great Monday :)

Monday Grocery Haul and Prep Day

Hey everyone! Hope you are all well and had a great weekend! It seems like Monday posts have turned into grocery hauls and prep! Today is no different except that I’m throwing my meals in as well :) I accomplished so much today and I’m really glad I did because I know now that this Monday prep makes all the difference in meal planning for the week.

So let’s check out the grocery haul first!

First up is the (all organic) produce! Broccoli, THREE bunches of swiss chard (I’m not making the same mistake as last week, lol!), shiitake mushrooms, honeycrisp apples, tomatoes, cauliflower and carrots.

Macro sushi, GoodBelly (LOVING this stuff!), veggie chips, chocolate covered cacao nibs (I figured it was a good way to indulge my chocolate cravings), brown rice tortillas and unsweetened organic peanut butter. Did you know it’s IMPOSSIBLE to find any tortilla chips without corn and/or wheat? So annoying so I guess if necessary I’ll just have to make my own.

After Whole Foods one very important thing was left on my list since I couldn’t find any at WFs. It drives me crazy that they change what they carry all the time but it worked out in my favor. Trader Joe’s isn’t too far out of the way so I made a super quick trip there and got…

Dolmas!!! Of course! I grabbed two because I know myself haha. I also picked up a back of roasted plantain chips. These things are AMAZING. Oh and TJs dolmas are almost half price of WFs. Just sayin.

After Trader Joe’s I came home, ate breakfast then started prepping for the week. I’ll show you breakfast in a bit but here’s what I made:

I don’t make the same mistake twice so I made a HUGE batch of Sauteed Chard. Three bunches of chard huge. Came out just as delicious as the last time and it’ll last me the week!

Another big ass batch of Cheesy Cauliflower Mash! Can’t go wrong with this delicious stuff!

I also made a big batch of my first attempt at gluten free lo mein ;) I used the buckwheat ramen noodles I bought last week along with onions, broccoli and shiitake mushrooms. I used the same seasonings as the greens and I think it came out good? The noodles are a little sticky and gummy but otherwise it should be ok. I’ll need a find a more sturdy noodle but the two servings I made for this week will be tasty with these ramen :)

So I have a great start for meals for this week and had some great meals today! For the rest of this incredibly long post I’ll be showing you those :)

For breakfast I had some of the Farmer’s Market granola with almond milk and strawberries. The strawberries were so delicious. I really don’t want to say this but I wish I could say the same about the granola. I feel so bad saying it but I think she used salted nuts and/or seeds so the granola was really salty. All I could taste was salt. I didn’t even finish the third of a cup that I had in the bowl and I don’t know if I’ll be eating it again. Which is kind of a huge waste because it was really expensive.

Lunch was my delicious Macro Sushi. So good. Haven’t had this for so long but I guess WFs started carrying it again. Maybe that’s what replaced the stuffed grape leaves lol.

Speaking of stuffed grape leaves… ;) An afternoon snack of stuffed grape leaves, veggie chips and hummus. Delicious.

For dinner I made 1/2 cup of gluten free pasta with cauliflower mash and greens. So freaking good.

And that’s finally the end of the post, ha! This one ended up being super long but I just had so much to show you! I hope you all are having a good Monday and I should be back tomorrow with more meals!

Have a great night!

Grocery Haul & Prep

Hey everyone. Thank you all so much for your kind words over the past few days. It means a lot and I really appreciate it. But now I’m back and moving forward so I have a beautiful grocery haul to show you and some prep I did to make it easier to grab some beautiful healthy meals in the upcoming week. All of the produce I got is organic (so I don’t have to write organic in front of everything lol).

Swiss chard, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, garlic, cucumber and tomatoes.

Bananas, strawberries, grapes (inspired by Ingrid), carrots and pink lady apples.

I decided to give Ezekiel bread another try and have grown to love it so it’s the only kind of bread I eat anymore. Needed another loaf because I knew I’d be finishing the one I had with some of the prep I did (you’ll see that in a minute). I also decided to take the GoodBelly 12 Day Challenge. I’m coming off of that 10 day cycle of antibiotics and I’m still feeling pretty run down so I figured it was the perfect time to get those probiotics in me. GoodBelly sends you some coupons to help you prepare for the challenge and will send you more after. The Tropical Orange flavor was the only gluten free one they had in the store so I grabbed two of those to get my through the first 8 days of the challenge. I’ll be starting that tomorrow.

Some Daiya Cheddar, ketchup, coconut oil cooking spray, buckwheat ramen (all of the buckwheat soba had wheat in it as well) and some mochi.

After I got home and put everything away I did about 3 hours worth of prep work for the week (which includes all of the cleaning I had to do in between everything). Here’s what I made:

 This is the Sauteed Chard from Crazy Sexy Kitchen. Can’t go wrong with some beautiful swiss chard sauteed with onion and garlic with lots of nooch. It cooked down so much though I’m going to make sure to add lots more chard the next time I make it. The flavor is absolutely delicious though.

A big batch of Cheesy Cauliflower Mash. This will make a lot of great meals during the week.

Some French Toast using Ezekiel sprouted grain bread. The recipe still needs some tweaking but I will make sure to post it when it’s perfect. This batch is still pretty damn tasty though.

Finally, I made Gabby’s Shredded Brussels Sprout Salad. Well I got it started at least. She says it is best after it marinates in the dressing for a while so I made it today to give it time to soak in those flavors. I’ll add in the pear when I’m ready to serve so I can chop it fresh. Doesn’t it look pretty.

So that’s what I’ve done so far today. I was at Whole Foods at the crack of dawn and cooking by 9:30 am. I got a lot done though which is great and will make it so easy to make great, healthy choices during the week.

Shen, this pic is for you. I know you wanted a pic of Delilah so I did one better and got the cutest pic ever of her holding Tyler. She’s getting so big, it’s crazy!

Alright, that’s all for this epic post. I’m planning on getting back to posting on a fairly regular basis now and I’m planning on focusing on getting back to eating a gluten free, clean diet. I think this week’s haul will definitely help me do that.  Hope you are all well and have a great day.

 

Grocery Haul & Some Prep

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a nice weekend and a Happy Mother’s Day! A belated Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mommies out there (to human and fur babies!). I had a nice day with my mom, sister in law and niece. Exhausting but nice ;)

After the festivities I decided to make a run to Whole Foods (in the evening… I never go in the evening lol). I remembered I have an appointment with my Rheumatologist in the morning at the most inconvenient time so I figured I’d get it out of the way so I don’t have to drive far in the opposite direction of my other errands after.

I grabbed some great stuff! Hopefully my goals of fresh, clean eating will be reflected in this haul ;)

Some yummy veggies! A HUGE container of spring mix for lots of salads, frozen organic broccoli and peas and carrots, tomatoes and a giant organic english cucumber. You’ll see what the frozen veggies are for in a minute ;)

Pretty fruit! A cute little organic seedless watermelon, cherries (!!!!), bananas, bosc pears, mangos and peaches. I went with the intention of getting lots of strawberries but they had not one container of strawberries!! Apparently it’s a big Mother’s Day ingredient because they were cleaned out! I rationalized the ridiculous price of the cherries by saying it’s probably the same I’d spend on 2 containers of strawberries.

Just a quick funny story from Whole Foods too! I walked in and was picking out my cherries (picking out produce is a process for me… I’ve very picky lol) and a guy walked up to me and was like I’m so sorry can I ask you a question? So I said yes of course and he points over to the greens area of the produce which was a few feet away and asked me which of them was parsley. He said the sign says parsley but I don’t know which it is. Lol! It was kind of precious so I grabbed some parsley for him and he said “thank you so much, my mom asked me to get parsley and I have no idea what it is.” It was really funny and it definitely made me chuckle. If I had to guess his age I’d guess maybe low to mid twenties?

So anyway, today I started off my day with an appointment with my Rheumatologist. Same old, taking blood (11 vials!!) and checking everything out. After that I ran some errands then came home to prep some food for the week!

I started off by making a huge batch of un-fried rice!

Isn’t it pretty?! This is going to last me a while. Which is great because I’m planning on trying to get back into my gym routine which leaves even less time for me to prep. It’s part of the reason why I plan on eating low maintenance meals of fruits and salads, etc.

Close up of my rice. There’s brown rice, my frozen peas and carrots, shiitake mushrooms and four chopped up green onions. I seasoned it very simply with a sprinkle of gluten free tamari and some garlic.

After I made my rice I cut up my watermelon, got my cherries all washed and then made:

this GIANT salad for tomorrow’s dinner! I have work then I’m going to the gym after so to deal with making a salad and dressing after taking a shower is the last thing I want to do. Instead I put the salad together today and will blend up my dressing fresh tomorrow before I eat it :) This one contains tons of my spring mix, some romaine, carrot and cucumber. I’m really trying to focus on eating a ton of greens!

So that’s all I’ve got for you today! I’m going to head off to the gym in a little bit. My goal is to do an hour of cardio. Totally doable. I find that getting my butt out the door is the hardest part. Going to make a new playlist to listen to, maybe that will help :)

Hope you all had a great Monday!

Kaeng Raeng Cleanse Grocery Haul

Hey everyone! Hope you are all doing well and had a great week so far! I forgot to update you all but my tooth never healed and actually got much worse so I ended up having to schedule the root canal which actually just happened. I can’t feel half of my face typing this, lol. It actually is perfect timing as I received my Kaeng Raeng Cleanse in the mail yesterday and I’m planning on starting it this weekend! In order to prepare I went to Whole Foods this morning before the dentist so I wouldn’t have to attempt to speak to anyone with a numb face ;)

So before I get into the haul just a little info about the cleanse. It consists of three smoothies a day that include a mix that they send. You can just use the contents of the packet or you can blend in fruit, greens, etc. You can supplement the smoothies with raw fruits and veggies so you get to chew as well as sip which is pretty great for a cleanse. I’m supposed to be careful about chewing on the one side since I have a temporary filling so the sipping and chewing mostly soft fruit and veggies will definitely be easy.

Anyway, here is my beautiful haul that I’m excited about!

Before I even walked into the store I was excited to see boxes of clementines sitting right out front! These are such a great snack so I grabbed a box :)

Lots of organic berries to snack on and add to my smoothies! Two containers of strawberries and some blackberries.

5 organic Pink Lady apples, 4 organic mangoes (2/$4!!) and some frozen peaches for smoothie additions.

Giant container of baby spinach, lots of carrots (may be the only thing I really have to be careful chewing) and a cucumber.

Isn’t it a great haul! I love looking at all of the colors :)

Here’s some stuff from the past few days too:

Here’s an amazing smoothie I made the other day. All I used was frozen strawberries, frozen pineapple and one and a half bananas. I blended with a half cup of water and it was so thick and creamy! Plus I love this mug ;)

That was a snap of the weather on Tuesday. It was warm, sunny and beautiful. My ideal weather is about 70 degrees and sunny so it was warm but not unbearable (not a fan of 90+ degrees!). It was such a nice day and I couldn’t believe how quickly it warmed up like that!

So that’s it for now! I’m back in my PJs laying around watching Role Models (which randomly happened to be on) waiting for the novacaine to wear off. I hope you are all doing well and I’ll be back soon to update you!

*Edited to add – OMG the novacaine just wore off and holy shit! It hurts! I don’t remember it feeling like this ha! Maybe that means I need to treat myself to some ice cream for dinner tonight ;) Which means I’d have to go get it. Does gluttony or laziness prevail? We shall see.

Grocery Haul and Prep Day

Hey everyone! Look at that, it only took 3 days for me to post again. Getting better, right? ;) I’ve got lots of pictures for you today since I spent all morning grocery shopping then immediately cooking some of the haul to try and pull myself out of the lazy trend I’ve been following. I think it should work out well.

First, check out the haul:

Broccoli, bananas, spring mix, carrots, eggplant, cauliflower, cucumber and zucchini.

Some dolmas, trail mix (recommended by Maud!) and two individual packets of Sacha Inchi seeds. I’ve seen the large bags before but I love buying single serving stuff because it is a great grab and go snack. I was so excited to see the individual servings, I’d never seen them before!

Immediately after unpacking I started prepping some food to make easy meals during the week. My oven got a workout today ;)

First up I made a batch of my Gluten Free Carrot Spice Muffins. I used a larger muffin tin to make a nice sized muffin like you’d get at a bakery so it only made 5. Which is fine because these are a once in a while treat… most are in the freezer right now.

I plugged it in to a calorie counting app and it says that with 5 servings, each muffin has 330 calories. I feel like that’s a great number in comparison to the calories you’d normally find in a bakery muffin. They have no sugar, are sweetened with maple syrup and banana and have plenty of healthy fruit, veggies and nuts to fill you up. And they taste amazing.

Up next was a big batch or roasted veggies: zucchini, eggplant and mushrooms.

I plan on adding these veggies to salads, MAYBE pasta (as I’ve mentioned before I’m not a huge pasta eater but once in a while it’s good), as a side with dolmas and raw veggies, etc.

Finally, I made a big batch of roasted cauliflower. Can’t go wrong with a big batch of this in the fridge :)

Also, as a mini update, I hit pads with my trainer last Friday for the first time in probably 4-6 months. He had come up with these advanced combo drills and decided to use me as a guinea pig to see if they were doable/teachable. I was so excited because it was like I never stopped. I picked it up really quickly and he seemed really happy about it. It was really nice to know that what I feared was not my reality and that I didn’t forget everything that I had learned in 4 and a half years of boxing/kickboxing training. I’m so excited to get back in there again!

That’s about it for today. I’m going to do my best to post more often and get back to posting meals. Hopefully this prep will help me keep up with my healthy, clean meals this week which will hopefully help me feel better. Have a great day everyone!
