If You Are A Lover Of Mediterranean Food, Like Me, You Will LOVE These Chicken Tzatziki Bowls!

I can’t even begin to tell how how delicious these Chicken Tzatziki Bowls are! I am a sucker for Mediterranean food, so I knew I would love it… but my husband, who is not as in love with Mediterranean food, was obsessed with it! Of course I left the olives off of his… god forbid he eat an olive. The bitterness of the tomato and cucumber salad paired so nicely with the tart and spiciness of the chicken. I will definitely be making this one again!

Listen To Your Body When Exercising. What Is It Saying?

This week’s Friday Fitness Tip is to “Listen To Your Body.” 

Whether you are an avid exerciser, or a beginner, it is always important to listen to your body. If something doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t.  Stop what you are doing, and re-evaluate. If you are in a group fitness class, call over the instructor/coach and ask for help. If you are working out alone, stop and do some more research. Exercise-related injuries can be very serious. A simple pulled muscle can take you out of the game for weeks! 

It is also super important to stretch before and after exercising.  Let us tell you first hand that getting older does not make this easier. The older you get, the older your muscles get.  They need more TLC that when you were in your 20s. Sad but true. 

Forget Skinny. Skinny Is Old News. Try Being Fit. Fit Is In.

True Life: I used to be obsessed with being “skinny.”  All throughout my adolescent years, I focused on it, stressed over it, and I dreamt about it. I let those thoughts control my life, and I developed a lot of unhealthy habits because of it.  It was the monkey on my back that I couldn’t quite shake. Thankfully, when I found exercise, I had an epiphany.

I didn’t need to be skinny; I wanted to be fit.

It took me way into my 20’s, but I have finally figured it out. My goal today is to no longer be skinny, it is to be fit.

My First Experience With Sriracha Sauce (Can You Believe It)! Skinny Taste’s Honey Sriracha Chicken and Broccoli

I tried sriracha sauce for the first time… Skinny Taste’s Honey Sriracha Chicken and Broccoli. It was Sunday morning, and my husband was preparing the food list  for the week. “What are we having for dinner this week?” Ugh, the dreaded question he asks me every week!  I hate having to pick out dinners. It’s stressful to find new recipes because, what if it isn’t good? What if it’s too difficult?  What happens if I screw it up (pizza delivery, anyone?).  

I love Skinnytaste recipes, so I started with her blog, and found this Honey Sriracha Chicken and Broccoli recipe and had to give it a try. I literally just said to my husband last week that I have never had sriracha! Not only was this meal SO easy, it was equally as delicious.  I even made extra for lunches this week. 

I hope you enjoy this meal as much as me and my family did!

My visit to Stone Harbor’s Bootcamp.

Name: 7 Mile Fitness

Exercise Type: Bootcamp – There were 40 stations set up all along the recreation center.  A few examples were: jumping jacks, squats, weighted ball throws, bicep curls, burpees, planks, and lunges.  When I first heard “40 stations” I figured there had to be repeats… I was amazed that they were all different!

Friday Fitness Tip – Be Positive

This week’s Friday Fitness Tip is to Be Positive when it comes to your exercise routine, and in all honesty… life.  So many of us are consumed by negative thoughts, including us. I’m not good enough. I can’t do this exercise. It’s too hard. I don’t have enough time. I’m too tired.  I’m not fit enough. Stop it. All of those thoughts are negative, and we can all relate at some point or another.

Anyways, what are some ways to get rid of your negative thoughts?
