Ok….truth time. I have a really big event coming up in July. Yes, I have known about it for A YEAR! And NO I didn’t stick with my goal to get in the best shape of my life during that year. (Did I mention this is a fitness convention and there will be some ahhhhhmazingly fit people there)
So, it’s crunch time for this girl. I’m out to see what I can accomplish in a very healthy way in a very very short time. 80% of weight loss happens in the kitchen. And half the battle with the 80% is your food prep!
This took me very little time and I did it all on the grill because it was absolutely gorgeous out today.
Has there been a time in your life where you just knew you weren’t being true to who God created you to be? Perhaps you’re like me and that time is right now.
For a while now (actually most of my life) I have felt like I haven’t been true to all that God created me to be. I have worried about judgment and rejection (and yes, even some unfriending or unfollowing). However, I know without a doubt it’s time to lay all of that down, spread my wings and become ALL He has created me to be. It’s still a little scary thinking about what others will think or say BUT I am beyond excited!!!!
I know the only way I am going to see a change between now and then is if I lay out my plan and commit to staying focused. I know how easy it is to get off track and talk yourself out of plan so I have my work cut out for me….It’s bout to get real up in here!
One of my fave desserts is tiramisu and my favorite place to get it is Amerigo’s, an Italian restaurant here in Nashville.
“Tiramisu” is the Italian word for “little pick-me-up.” However, if you have ever had the dessert before you know it’s definitely something you only treat yourself to once in a while because it a definite “weigh-you-down” loaded with sugar and wasted calories.
I have great news though! I have found away to have it everyday as a little pick-me-up that is loaded with nutrition you will never find in the traditional dessert. OMGosh!!! Try this tiramisu-flavored smoothie!
