Before we get to today’s What I Ate Wednesday, I wanted to reach out to any of you who might need a change, a way to mix things up for a month, or a new challenge in your life. If you’ve been reading recently then you know I became a Beachbody Coach just over a month ago and with that has come a considerable amount of personal development. I have been pushed out of my comfort zone in ways I never imagined and it has given me so much confidence and empowerment, which I never imagined finding. I thought being a coach would be all about helping others! I had no idea how much it would help me as well.
One big thing that I’ve learned from the past month is that it’s okay to fail. Not only is it okay to fail, but it’s GOOD TO FAIL. Did you hear that? Yep. When we fail we know we’re trying something new, we’re testing our limits. When you fail, you get back up, try again and maybe make it a little further the next time.
Well, in February I’m doing the 21 Day Fix again and I am so excited to give it my all. But this time I would love some of you to do it with me. I need you to keep me motivated and accountable and I’d love to do the same for you. Beachbody has made such a huge impact on my life that I want to share that with the people around me and you, my blog readers, have been around me for so many crazy ups and downs in my life. Many of you really do know me just from reading, you know I’m real and open and honest – I 100% believe in Beachbody and Shakeology and this stuff you might hear me talk about on here on on Instagram. I’m not here to make a buck, I’m here to make a difference – to leave this world a little bit better than how I found it.
So if you’re ready to be pushed out of your comfort zone and try something new, shoot me an email or leave me a comment asking for more info here. I would rather try a thousand times and fail every time than never try at all. You don’t get anywhere in life without pushing yourself outside your comfort zone!
P.S. it’s zero risk money-wise (you know I’m budget conscious!) because you can send the whole challenge pack back for a full refund if you didn’t like it!
And now, on to today’s WIAW and a SPECIAL VIDEO!!!! So embarrassing and yet I love it. Thank you to Peas and Crayons for hosting!
For breakfast I tried a new grain-free oatmeal recipe. Haha doesn’t look like much but it was pretty good! It’s called Sugar Detox Carrot Cake Pudding and mostly has carrots, almond butter and coconut cream.
For lunch I had roasted carrots, sauteed collard greens, a baked sweet potato and a chicken breast. I’m actually scared to cook chicken (haha maybe I should jump out of my comfort zone there!) but I found this pack of four pre-cooked chicken breasts at Trader Joes and it was perfect!
My afternoon snack was roasted sunflower seeds and an apple. This day I was actually extra hungry and ate another little container (from the Fix!) of sunflower seeds to hold me over.
For dinner it was a Turkey Burger (from TJs) and roasted broccoli and roasted okra. This broccoli was SO GOOD! I forgot how much I love roasted Broccoli!!!
I didn’t snap a picture, but later I was still hungry so I also had another handful of sunflower seeds and a Quest Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bar. Perfect end to a great day!
When was the last time you were pushed out of your comfort zone?
What’s your favorite thing you’ve eaten this week?
