WIAW #17

Good evening! Its another WIAW post and I'm going to continue posting like I have the last few weeks. Instead of posting everything I had in one day, I'm posting all the things I ate this week that caught my eye! This girl likes variety! 

----What WIAW isn't about----
Comparison - Judgement - Restriction - Guilt

----What WIAW is about----
Celebrating one of the glorious things we all have in common: We all eat!

WIAW is about food and fun! It's about making new friends, breaking out of a food rut, noting changes in your diet/lifestyle, inspiring yourself & others, embracing fruit & vegetables, nourishing your body with the foods that work for you, finding new ways to eat your favorite foods, and so much more <3

BBQ chicken (finger licking goodness) with roasted garden veggies, green beans and broccoli and cauliflower! 

Friday went to the store for the hubby and I to grill outside!

And this was the awesome outcome! Steak pinwheels stuffed with parmesan and spinach, roasted cauliflower and grilled mushrooms! Initiate face plant.

Sunday we grilled flank steak (can you tell I love steak?) and asparagus and roasted and mashed cauliflower!

For lunches this week I whipped up a batch of Skinny Taste's Crockpot Chicken Enchilada Soup for the hubby and I!

Monday nights I have Tax Accounting night class so salads are usually on the menu! Roasted shrimp, avocado, broccoli, feta.... Happiness!

PIZZZZZZA! My kryptonite! I did an extra workout so I could exhale this! (and two more pieces heehee) 

My sister made these bad boys.... And I was the official taste tester and photographer (which is just as important - right?). Skinny Taste Flourless Brownies! DE-FREAKING-LICIOUS!

On a side note a suggestion I'd make - double the almond milk and instead of half a teaspoon of oil use a full tablespoon!

And now I'm hungry... 
As usual.

Question: What neat new recipe did you try? Or did you make? Link up if you want!

Eat clean, train mean, && inspire others!

Kiwi Cravings

Good evening all my favorite people! The weekend is almost upon us so hang in there!

I have decided to start a new segment called "Kiwi Cravings..." to share with you all new gadgets, recipes, treats, clothes, ect that I may be crushing on! Hopefully you will find something you like or what to try and if you have something you want to share for me to try or check out be sure to add it in the comments below!

First off: Pure Protein Bars

These things are straight dangerous! Taste almost like a snickers bar but have 200 cal, 20g of protein, 16g of carbs (1 from fiber and 2 from sugar), and 6g of fat! Not saying eat these bad boys all day every day but this is definitely my favorite bar I've found so far! DROOL.

Holy wow, don't they look delicious?! My sister pointed me in the direction of this recipe and I am definitely making these this weekend! Brownies are a point of weakness for me so I would feel less terrible about eating the whole pan (just kidding) if they were healthy! I'll let you know how they turn out!

Wonder Woman Wrist Wraps

Say that 5 times fast! Whew! Found these on Etsy and they are soooooo cute! I think I NEED these. Being fashionable in the gym is important right? I bet I'll hit a PR with those babies!

Wod Gear Crops

Look at the color of these crops!!! Be still my heart! I have a pair of their running crops and I LOVE THEM. LOVE LOVE LOVE. They are thick, comfortable and stay in place while running and during wods! And their customer service is amazing! I must say I even like these more than my Lululemons!

Working on my weaknesses

I can only speak for myself but I know when I'm not good at something I tend to avoid it so I don't get discouraged. That is changing. I am dead set on mastering my pull-ups, pistols and toes to bar... I've been spending a lot of time lately building on those without beating myself up about it. Everyone grows at their own pace, slow and steady wins the race my friends.

On a bad ass note - I am happy to announce that I have been chosen to be a Fitfluential Ambassador! FitFluential is a nationwide network of fitness enthusiasts sharing their journey both online and offline through multiple social media platforms. I am honored and excited to be apart of such a fun and encouraging community!! Check out their website and sign up to become a member!
