Not the most flattering angle…


So okay. Yeah. I didn’t want to post this but I wanted to share that even problem areas get better. I have always had a problem with my lower belly but through fitness and exercise it is certainly shrinking. Picture on left is from March 23. Picture on right is from May 18. I for sure notice a different in size. I know this is awkward but I just wanted to share. Don’t ever give up on yourself!

Late March on the left , May 18.
Here is a picture I thought I would never post haha. Me in Puerto Vallarta at around 255. Throwback Thursday!

I have been working out every single day to try to complete my one mile a day for May. That as I have mentioned has turned into 100. I’m almost at 60 miles, I hope I can do it. 🙏🏻🙏🏻

With everything going on in the world I just have been trying to stay calm and collected.

Now that’s a ^throwback Thursday!! Highest weight 335! Pre gallbladder surgery. Did I mention I had to have emergency gallbladder surgery because it was functioning at 6 percent? Yeah that happened!

Anyways, still working on getting the site together guys I know it’s hard to navigate right now! Thank you for your patience. Happy almost weekend!

Recipe Review. Heidi Powell’s Garlic Parmesan Chicken.


DSC00705

I found this Recipe from Heidi Powell and it looked so simple that I had to try it. It only has six ingredients! I didn’t have to go to the store for anything. Those are the best kinds of meals to make. SIMPLE!

I preheated my oven to 375. Sprayed my glass pan and added the chicken breast. 4 ounces per person.  I next mixed 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese, 1/2 cup of Chobani plain greek yogurt, garlic powder, a bit of sea salt, and pepper. At the last second I added about 1.5 tbsp of Frank’s buffalo sauce.I  spooned that mixture on top of the chicken. Put it in the oven and baked for 45 minutes.garlicparm1 garlicparm2 garlicparm3

DSC00704Here are the stats for the chicken-

For each 4 oz. portion of chicken: 161 calories, 4.5 g fat, 1.1 g carbohydrate, 28.75 g protein. Add a few more calories (like 2.5) if you add in any buffalo sauce!

This dish was honestly fantastic. The chicken was cooked perfectly. It wasn’t dry or overcooked at all. I used a butter knife to cut it! The added buffalo sauce was awesome. It gave it just enough of a kick. I recommend adding some for sure. This is going to be on my new weekly make list. It is SO simple. In fact I am making it again tomorrow! Thanks Heidi!

May is donezo.


May was so freaking amazing. 

My total miles walked was 176 at the end of last night.

My total pounds loss was 13.4. 

I blew BOTH of my goals out of the water. 

YEAH.

So today is the first of June and I have committed myself to FINISHING the 30 day shred. Here we go again. Praying for no injuries! I finished Day 1 huffing, puffing, and ready to puke. Word.

Keep it active friends. Summer is here! 🙂
