Benefits of Keeping a Workout Log

Workout Log Workout Journal

I always bring my workout log with me EVERY single time I go to workout, here is an example of a page from my log back in November 2011. I just bought a small 100-page Mead notebook at Office Depot (I put my hand there to give you a perspective of the size). There are a lot of different ways to track your workouts, this is just how I like to do it. I used to print off the logs from bodybuilding.co ...[Read More]

Healthy Peppermint Ice Cream

Making a healthy treat for my next small meal during halftime of the Boise State game 🙂 Just made my own variation of the "Healthy Peppermint Ice Cream" recipe from last month's Oxygen magazine - SO yummy!!! Great way to celebrate that lucky touchdown! 🙂 Ingredients: 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder (I use MRM brand Rich Vanilla flavor) 1/4 tsp peppermint e ...[Read More]

Homemade Healthy Ranch Dressing/Dip

Homemade Ranch Dressing Dip (Makes approximately 7 tbsp.) *NOTE* If you find this is too thick or too thin, you can add more almond milk to make it thinner, or less almond milk to make it thicker. 4 tbsp. unsweetened almond milk 3 tbsp. non-fat plain Greek yogurt (I like Fage 0%) 1/4 tsp. onion powder 1/8 tsp. dried dill 1/2 ts. dried parsley 1/2 tsp. dried chives 1/4 tsp. sea salt 1/4 tsp. black ...[Read More]

Pumpkin Pie Cottage Cheese

"Pumpkin Pie" Cottage Cheese I will eat this sometimes for my last meal of the day instead of frozen egg whites. I mix one serving of 1% or 2% cottage cheese (I like Lactaid brand because it is easier on my stomach but it can be hard to find) with one spoonful of raw pumpkin (make sure the canned raw pumpkin you buy doesn't have sugar added to it). *NOTE* most fat free cottage cheeses have sugar a ...[Read More]

Sweet Potato Chips

This is how I will sometimes prep my sweet potatoes for the week. I cut them into slices and sprinkled cinnamon and truvia on top (I cut up 5 sweet potatoes and only needed to use two packets of truvia). I only did one side but you could flip them and put the cinnamon/truvia on both sides if you wanted. I cooked them for about 35 minutes on 350. Once they were cooled I portioned them out and put t ...[Read More]

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

My favorite way to cook Brussels Sprouts! About one lb of Brussels Sprouts, cut ends off and cut in half. Put on foil then sprinkle 1 Tbsp olive oil and 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle black pepper, garlic powder, and sea salt on top. Cook at 400 degrees until edges are brown and crisp. Mmmmmm I could eat the whole tray cooked this way!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Egg Whites

Most people eat ice cream for their late night snack, I like this egg white PB hot mess-looking meal 🙂 I just blended six egg whites, stevia, unsweetened coca powder, almond milk together in the blender, cooked it like a pancake and added 1 Tbsp natural pb. Yum!! I try to eat every three hours. So if I end up staying up late I continue to eat every three hours to keep my metabolism revved up, I ju ...[Read More]

Salt and Vinegar Kale Chips

If you like salt and vinegar chips you will love these. Just like salt and vinegar chips, you can't stop at just one! (If you don't like salt and vinegar chips you can still make these just lightly mist with olive oil instead of the vinegar bath). This is how I did it: Preheat oven to 375 I bought a bag of pre-cut Kale just because it is easier, but if you buy it in the bunch just chop the bunch i ...[Read More]

Chocolate Orange Egg Whites

Here is another sort of funky way to eat your egg whites at night but I think it tastes good! It sort of tastes like one of those chocolate oranges you get at Christmas time. Sort of. 🙂 I went and saw The Vow tonight (so so so so good btw! My crush on Channing Tatum just got that much bigger) 🙂 the movie was sold out so we had to go to the later viewing. I didn't get home until 1:30am and was star ...[Read More]

Chocolate Egg White Puffs

Here is what my egg white puffs look like.  Sometimes I will eat my egg whites this way at night right before I go to bed.  This isn't my favorite egg white recipe, but it works in a pinch.  If you wanted, you could add peanut butter, or any other extracts for different flavors.  This is a recipe I got from Tambrika Simpson in the Jamie Eason LiveFit Facebook group and I adapted it a little bit fo ...[Read More]
