Rainy days, and yummy hot cocoa

 Who else wakes up on a rainy, gloomy day and wants nothing else than to snuggle up on the couch with a yummy cup of hot cocoa?  It is one of my favorite drinks, but I rarely drink it since it is so full of sugar. Then  this idea hit me, make your morning protein shake hot and ta da you have hot cocoa.

Here is how it works.

put 2/3 of your milk in the  microwave for 2 minutes

place 1/3 of your milk in a shaker bottle, and add your scoop (or two, I won't tell) in it, and give it a good shake. 

when your milk is done in the microwave , stir in the protein & milk mixture

And there it is, some of the best hot cocoa I've ever had. I've been using Muscle Milk protein powder, what kind do you guys like?

workout tip #1

Well guys, the holidays are over and its time to get back at it. When it comes to working out I hate routine. Let me say that again I HATE routine. I have a hard time following programs of any sort. I prefer mixing my workouts up everyday.

                 Here is a great idea ,especially  if you workout from home. Write down on popsicle sticks workouts that you know how to do.  ( tip: don't eat a whole box of popsicles just for this :) , pick out 5 sticks and do 5 rounds of 25 each. This is an easy way to get a quick workout in without any equipment, however it does eliminate your excuse to not workout because you don't have a home gym.

sweets and treats

Today I was craving a Whoopi pie in the worst way. My favorite allergy friendly bakery that makes them is 45 minutes away. What does that lead to, you may wonder? Me, in my kitchen, attempting to recreate something so wonderful. They did not turn out like I thought, however I was pretty pleased, and they will hold me over until I make it Sweet Freedom, for one of theirs.

Chocolate Oatmeal Raisin Cookie with Peanut butter cream cheese filling.
I was craving a whoopi pie so bad but haven't been able to get to the allergy friendly bakery so I whipped this up myself must admit I'm pretty proud of this #eggfree #glutenfree #refinedsugarfree #buttastedelicious

Its only impossible if you believe it is

Hey there everyone !
                       I am so excited to announce that the first person I have helped with eating healthy and working out is now only ten pounds away from her goal weight. Through much hard work and dedication she has lost 52 pounds. I am so proud of her.

                   So many people have been inquiring about how she did it. Her response? Eating healthy and working out 5 days a week. Can you believe its not rocket science?!? Hard work really pays off.

               Any one else want help losing those extra pounds? I am more than happy to help, and until I'm certified there would be no charge, except a lot of sweat ;)

As I laid in bed this morning I was thinking of everything I wanted to accomplish today. This silly blog popped in my head, and I realized I haven't posted in a long time. Life has been very busy, and this just got pushed aside.

I was planning on writing up some of the recipes I have been creating, however coming up May 30th I will be taking part of creatingkilter's meal plan monday's and giving her recipes to post. You can find it on

So here is just a little thought to leave you with, and I will be back shortly to update you on all the exciting things keeping me busy!

Healthy Cheese and Turkey Wrap

1 whole grain wrap( I use gluten free brown rice wraps)

2 Tbsp. Roasted Red Pepper hummus

5 slices of cucumber

1 slice of provolone cheese

slices of red onion to taste

handful of spinach

3 thinly sliced pieces of turkey.

Place it in the wrap and enjoy!

Side Note:    I also turned them into pinwheels for a cute lunch idea at work. Either way you put it, it is simply delicious.

Second side note:  If you are looking to stay low carb, these are just as yummy with or without the wrap, just use the turkey as a wrap!

Disclaimer : These will be addicting, I suggest consulting myfitnesspal  before inhaling 5 of these to avoid over consumption.

  ♥ Live life happy and healthy ♥
