Hi Friends! It’s the end of the month so it’s time for another little update! Nala and I just got back from knocking out 5 miles and now I’m drinking coffee and she is rolling on the floor biting a bone.
Mr. Hungry is playing basketball for the next couple of hours so we have some time to sip our coffee and catch up.
If we were having coffee this morning, first I’d probably tell you all about my little caffeine detox and how much … [Read More...]
Hi Friends & Happy almost Friday!
This morning started out with a hike with 22lbs in my back pack. Dr. K has me do this when my lower back starts to have a "bruised" feeling. Apparently that means those muscles are working to hard and this grueling back pack thing makes other muscles work and activate in a non invasive way. I'm super excited about as you can tell...
With that out of the way for the day it was time to dig into … [Read More...]
Hi friends! The semester is winding down and before you know it will be over! This last week we are covering the importance of promoting bone health with nutrition! My students also go to get their Z Score via bone densitometer. Did you know that you can get DEXA scans (gold standard for measuring bone density) on Groupon for $25 bucks? Just be sure to go in with your game face because otherwise you might end up spending quite a lot. If you … [Read More...]
My Monday literally flew by! I ate lunch around noon (from Sunday meal prep, cauliflower rice and chicken) + 1 handful sunflower seeds.
UCAN and protein shake before and after an upper body workout today. Followed up by the best dinner of my life… an open faced egg sandwich, sometimes they just hit the spot don’t they?
The rest of this post is sponsored by Brode Electrolyte Vitamins with a sweet giveaway!

Hi Friends! So last night as I took the pup for her last walk of the day I thought about what really motivated me to do so? It was the fact that my watch said 8,700, therefore not over 10,000 and I just can’t miss it when I’m so close!
If you are not on the 10,000 steps per day bandwagon yet, first, I admire you for holding out so long - I did the same with skinny jeans and second, I slightly love tap the back of your head because there … [Read More...]
Happy Monday friends! I haven’t been that great at taking photos recently because ever since I dropped my phone on Easter it’s been a phone FIASCO. The insurance company sent me two refurbished phones that didn’t work. The first one would randomly shut off and the second one dropped calls, SO ANNOYING. I got sick of re signing into everything knowing another one was on it’s way, so I’ve cooled it a bit on the social media front. I thought … [Read More...]
Before I tell you how amazing these tuna cakes are I want to tell you about a killer offer from a local RD. Nancy Teeter, RDN has worked out a special promotion to get a nutri-bullet $20 off, and for each unit sold (using this link) $10 dollars gets donated to the Arizona Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Scholarship Fund! If you need a gift for Mother’s Day this could be the perfect gift and your supporting a great cause! (Note all proceeds … [Read More...]
Hi Friends! So today I have kind of a different topic that has been on my mind and I really feel the need to discuss for a moment. I was recently approached, indirectly through another project I was involved in, regarding HCG weight loss. To be honest, this was something I wasn’t very familiar with and even initially confused it with HGH. HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin and is a hormone naturally product by the embryo during the … [Read More...]
Hi Friends! Happy Hump Day!
I frequently get asked about meal delivery services by clients and friends. Recently, I was looking at one that seemed like they had pretty great reviews and focused on healthy well balanced meals. Meal delivery offers a ton of potential benefits including
saving time - estimated saving you 8-10 hours per week
increased variety (depending on … [Read More...]
My mom sent me this pic the other night which I thought was hilarious and perfect for how I felt about coffee…
So as you guys know I spent the last three weeks detox-ing from caffeine and sugar… again. I recapped about taking a break from sugar yesterday so today is all about the caffeine. Really, everything was about the caffeine.
Why? Eye twitches, energy swings, never having the energy for anything without a … [Read More...]
