Here is a list of a few of my favorite things that I use at the gym that I absolutely cannot live without!

Before Workout-

  • Quest Bars-I grab one of these on my way out of the door and they are perfect to eat on the way to the gym AND give me plenty of energy for my workout!
  • L-Carnintine- This is a great amino acid that helps boost metabolism.  I take 2 before my workout every day.  If you prefer liquid, I have tried this kind before and liked it too!  You can take it with food or on an empty stomach if you prefer to train fasted.

A few things you may not know about me are 1- If a recipe isn’t easy, I won’t make it.  2- I refuse to sacrifice taste just to hit my macros.  3- You won’t find me making weird recipes like protein pancakes, 1 carb waffles etc.. 4- I eat normal food that I can buy from the grocery store that is simple. (see 1 &2) 5- I am such a convenience person so I really won’t go out of my way to spend a lot of time on food.

My true hope and desire for this blog is to show you that you can be successful and lose weight while eating normal foods you can buy from the store. You don’t have to make nasty protein pancakes, protein bread or healthy mug cake that tastes like crap.  If that was the case, I would’ve failed a long time ago. Like I said, I am a convenience person and I like my meals to be simple and quick and still taste delicious.  I have tried all of the protein pancakes, bread and healthy mug cake etc… and they were all disgusting to me and I ended up just wasting a bunch of food and money.  So anytime I post a recipe on here, it will fall within my 3 requirements…convenient, easy and delicious.

I have been craving French Toast lately and came up with this version that tastes exactly like normal French Toast.  It is low calorie and completely satisfying!  Each Serving has only 85 calories including syrup and whipped cream!  You seriously can’t beat that! And even my kids like it!

Did you know that your body is made up of 60% water? And your brain is made up of 65% water! We NEED water for our body to function properly and to think clearly.  And unfortunately, this is one of the biggest areas people overlook.  When people think of health and weight loss, they generally just think about diet and exercise, but drinking enough water is equally important.  You need to be 100% on your diet, 100% on your exercise and 100% on your water intake for optimal results.  Will you see results with diet and exercise alone?  Sure, but you’ll have success more quickly if you are drinking enough water and there are SO MANY benefits to drinking water besides losing weight.
