This weekend, one of the gyms where I work hosted an open house, which included a live alligator, an awesome DJ, tons of amazing raffle ticket prizes, free classes (my 20-minutes of kickboxing was off the hook!!!), vendors and one of our owners, Anny, griddling some Protein Pancakes!

For as long as I remember, my mom & grandma have made No Bake Cookies. If you aren’t familiar, they are yummy chocolate-peanut butter-oatmeal cookies that require no baking!
Before we moved to Florida, my grandma would always have a batch for me when I would visit! And my mom would get in on the surprise, too! No matter which house I was at, I always had my favorite cookies at hand! Grandma always made sure I took a couple for my travel day, too! Continue reading

I am again inspired to make a healthy treat. Yesterday, I dug into store-bought tortilla chips and gluten-free cookies. (Yes, they are gluten-free, but not sugar and calorie-free. And I ate all 12 in one day!!) Continue reading
I had a can of Goya coconut milk that I was dying to use! A quick search on the interwebs of some other ingredients on hand, voila!
The Tale of the Tape
Current weight: 131 lbs
I stepped on two different types of scales at my gym this morning. One gave me about 131 lbs, the other 131.6 lbs.
I had already run about 2 miles, consumed a gluten-free waffle with a tablespoon of peanut butter, a hard-boiled egg and a small cornbread biscuit, along with my morning coffee and some water.
So…I am probably about 130 lbs at the beginning of this, my second, 10-day Shred.
Right Thigh: 19.75″
According to the handheld device at the gym my Body Fat % is 25 and my BMI is 23.6. Both normal for my height, weight and age!
It’s Day 4 of my 10 Day Shred.
There are a few things I have learned about myself in this short time. Continue reading
I popped into Target this morning to peruse the clearance and decided to treat myself to a coffee at the Starbucks (gold card-carrying coffee addict, right here!). Just a tall dark roast that I “doctored” up with a couple raw sugars, a bit of half & half and some of that vanilla powder in the spice shaker (tip: take the lid off and dump as much as you like! it’s way easier that way!!).
