weekend recap

my *new* watermelon spark and leptilean came in!! if you haven't tried spark yet, you totally should! keeps you energized though the day with out giving you that crazy jittery feeling!!! It also has 21 vitamins and minerals!! {}

Wore this to a friend's BBQ! Thankful I can fit back in to these super cute polka dot j-crew shorts! 

Went on a hike with my boys IN THE RAIN! This was so much fun! Definitely not something I've done before! We got dirty, cleared our heads, and had a blast! 

After church we made YUMMY protein pancakes!!!! DELISH!!! Definitely will be making these again!!! 
1/2 c rolled oats
1/8 t baking powder
1/4 t vanilla extract
1/2 c greek yogurt {i used raspberry} 
3 egg whites

*makes about 4 pancakes*

Prepped all of my meals for the week! If you haven't tried Braggs Liquid Aminos you totally should! Its a WAY lower sodium version of soy sauce and gives your veggies or chicken a great flavor!! 

Bought an orchid! I've always loved orchids! They are so simple and pretty! However, I have quite the opposite of a green thumb--it's pretty much a black thumb. Before we moved to a house I had all of these dreams of having a huge garden with lots of flowers and veggies. Well that dream quickly went down the drain when I couldn't even keep potted plants alive last summer. Then I proceeded to KILL A CACTUS this spring. Yes, I killed a cactus. Who knows how that happened. Anyway, heres to better luck with my beautiful orchid!!

{proof is in the pictures}

      I have always been one that is hard on myself. I am my own worst critic. Through college, however, I never really paid attention to the food I ate. I ate what ever I wanted whenever I wanted. The pounds started to pack on. Since highschool, through all four years of college I gained 20 pounds. I worked out and still considered myself “heatlhy” but I was never 100% confident in my body. 
In 2011 I married the love of my life. Along with the love came 10 pounds of “love chub”. I quickly realized I was on a downward spiral and went on a mission to lose those 10 pounds of “love cub”. After loosing 10 pounds, I tried so hard to lose a little bit more. I alwasy hovered around the same weight, no matter what diet I tried or how much I worked out. My husband and I went on a mission to clean out our pantry and eat as wholesome and organic as possible. I still could not shed a pound. I needed to make a change. 
I became fed up when we moved to a small town without a gym. I was determined that I was not going to let those ten “love chub” pounds pile back on. I began looking for a supplement that could help me shed those stubborn pounds and take me off the plateau. I looked hard but everything came along with crazy side effects and wierd ingredients that I was totally against after starting our mission to eat better. 

When I discovered AdvoCare through the blog world, I became amazed. This was an all nautral supplement company that does not use funky ingredients and come along with a jittery, racing heart. I was sold on the product. I began the 24 day challenge March 19, 2013 and haven’t looked back since then. I know that this product works because I have seen the results right before my very eyes. I haven’t seen an “ab” since high school and haven’t felt more confident about my body in my entire life. After completing the challenge, I lost 7 lbs and 18 inches and gained a lot of muscle! 

I plan to tell as many people as I can about this wonderful brand that has changed my life for the better. I hope to inspire and give everyone else the confidence that I have gained from AdvoCare.

Today I am linking up with jamie for what i'm loving wednesday!

I am LOVING my spark and catalyst! I absolutely swear by them and know that they are the reason I've been able to see such progress in my workouts!!

Yes, I realize this is silly to post a picture of me "flexin" but I'm super proud of the progress I've made and I want ya'll to see that this stuff really works!!!

I LOVED this black bean, avocado, and sweet potato wrap that hubby and I made on Sunday! We didn't really follow much of a recipe {surprise?} We just threw a bunch of random things in the wrap. Chick peas, black beans, sweet potato, avocado, onion, spinach leaves, corn, rotel {and rice and cheese for hubby} I ate mine over a bed of lettuce and hubby ate his on a wrap!! mmm mmm gooooddd!

I have been LOVING meal prepping for the week! It takes a little time and preparation on Sunday but it's so worth it! You wake up in the morning during work week and grab your lunch and go! So easy!! I make my chicken with chicken broth and ms. dash seasoning and my veggies with a little bit of coconut oil and lots and lots of herbs!!! Ain't nobody can tell me that eating healthy is "expensive" because last week I made TEN meals for TEN DOLLARS!!
