Kick It Up A Notch, Week 2!

Hello! Hope you all had a marvelous weekend and are ready to tackle this last week of February! (How crazy is that?!) This Monday morning sure was a lot easier to get out of bed after taking care of ourselves over the weekend and saying no to a few too many drinks- crazy how that works, huh? :) 


Since I'm being diligent about counting calories and hitting my macros, I did a little food prep last night to make sure I was ready for the week. Nothing crazy, just some pumpkin protein bars, and then roasted red potatoes for breakfast and brussels for our dinner veggie throughout the week. My new favorite seasoning is Lawry's- just the original, but it really spices up proteins and also veggies. 


This morning we were up early to hit back and bis ( in my new cute Puma tank and sports bra, thanks Puma!) and also got in our 20 minutes of incline walking. It's a little painful (the cardio) but it's one of those things I know I need to do, so I'm just sucking it up and making sure I have my phone on me to help pass the time. I do make sure to keep my core nice and tight and squeeze with each step- I still try to be mindful even if it's boring :)

  2. What incline and speed? Also, I see so many people clinging to the rails...I don't think it's good for you, but what do you think about holding the rails?

    1. I just cut them in half, then spritz with olive oil, salt, pepper and the Lawrys seasoning

  7. Hey girl!! Have you changed your pumpkin protein recipe at all? Just curious. These look really super yummy and moist! I use mostly coconut flour now in baking and its hard to keep it from drying out.
