You probably thought this blog was defunct. It’s not. We’ve just been busy. But I’m recommitting to the blog this Fall — along with recommitting to healthy eating. On Saturday, I started the 21 Day Fix and while I’m only on Day 3, I think this is a diet that will actually be sustainable — more of a lifestyle change than a diet long-term.
I signed up to be a Team BeachBody Coach as well (mostly to receive the discount) but if you’re interested in any of their products or workout plans — or even becoming a coach yourself — please let me know. I’d love to be a part of your journey. I also setup a new Instagram account @Stickyfeetfitness where I’ll be taking photos and sharing recipes each day if you’d like to follow me there.
My friend Jamie is doing the fix with me — so it’s nice to have someone to chat with about recipes, questions, etc. I’m also in a competition with my husband’s best friend, Owen. We are going to Las Vegas with him and his wife in November and whomever loses the most weight (based on percentage) is buying the other couple a couple’s massage. Now there is some motivation!
Since I’ve had kids, I’ve done a pretty good job of exercising consistently — my main issue is food. It’s just too easy to eat their leftovers, take them out for donuts and ice cream, and to make cookies on a rainy, dreary afternoon. And the truth is, I still plan to do all of those things… (okay, maybe not eat their leftovers…)… It’s just going to be a little bit more planned and less of a whim.
I had this salad on Saturday evening when the rest of the family was having hamburgers off the grill with coleslaw and baked beans. This salad was just as satisfying and I didn’t feel deprived. Total breakdown is 1.5 red, 2.5 green, 1 blue, 2 orange for the whole salad. Delicious and satisfying!
I made the Dijon Vinaigrette the day before and stored it in the fridge. You could use just one orange container, but I wanted my salad with lots of mustardy dressing to add to the cheeseburgerish flavor.
- 1 lean hamburger, grilled and diced (1 red)
- 1¾ cups Spinach (1.5 green)
- 5 baby carrots, chopped (.5 green)
- 1 hard boiled egg, sliced (.5 red)
- Fix Dijon Vinaigrette (2 orange) - you could just use one but I wanted plenty of mustardy dressing
- Shredded cheddar (1 blue)
- In a large bowl, add your spinach, chopped carrots, shredded cheddar, and diced hamburger. Arrange the sliced egg and top with vinaigrette. Delicious!
