11 TIPS to Living a Healthy Lifestyle!



Habits to a healthy lifestyle 

Living and eating healthy really is a lifestyle. Start small and set goals for yourself (and your family).
You must go into this knowing it will not happen overnight. This can get frustrating and result in giving up.

But if you start small….set small goals…these small goals will lead into big changes.


My 11 Tips…

- remember to drink plenty of water!

- get your significant other on board. If everyone in the household is willing to live a healthier lifestyle....it's so much easier to stick with it.

- plan your meals and snacksFail to Plan....Plan to Fail

- planning leads into prepping. Prep your meals 2 or 3 days in advance. This allows you to grab and go and you are less likely to make a trip to the vending machine!

- prepare TASTY meals and snacks. Eating healthy doesn't mean you have to eat bland chicken every day.Trust me....we've been there and done that and it's not fun. I honestly don’t think I can eat another chicken breast for the rest of my life!!!!

- remember it's a lifestyle.....not a diet

eat dessert! It's not gonna kill you. We usually splurge a little on the weekends. I would go crazy if I couldn't have dessert and pretty sure you feel the same way. My hubby may beg to differ and say that I'm already crazy!

don't starve yourself. This will only screw up your metabolism! Eat the correct portion size for your body and ask for help if you need it!

- eating a healthy breakfast sets the tone for the rest of the day

it's ok to fail. I've had my fair share of grabbing a donut (or two) from the break room or eating the entire box of goldfish while watching Joe Kenda on the ID Channel. It's going to happen but remember tomorrow is a new day. You'll have more good days than bad...trust me!

workout or do some type of physical activityFor me….it’s my ME time.

The BLAND Life... Or eat these Banana Muffins




Don’t lead the bland life…

We’ve been there and done that. 

Its soooooooo boring….let me tell you.

And it gets old REAL fast.

Take a little time out of your day here and there to find healthy recipes. Your mouth….AND your family will love you for it.

The MOST important tip I can give you….is to eat the correct sized  portion….typically 25-30 g protein and 25-30 g carbs is good for breakfast, lunch or dinner (give or take a little).
REMEMBER…You may be eating a healthy dish but If you eat 3 whole servings (when you should only be eating one serving)….you’re defeating the purpose aren’t you?! YES!

Now on to these super yummy Banana Muffins! I found the original recipe HERE. I adapted the recipe to what I had on hand and it worked out just fine!

We ate these with breakfast (accompanied by eggs and turkey sausage).

ONE serving is ONE Muffin
(makes 12 regular muffins – 1 muffin = 150 calories, 20c, 7f, 2p)

Banana Muffins

Ingredients
 - 1  ½ c flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 c coconut oil (melted)
- 1/3 c maple syrup
- 2 ripe bananas peeled

Instructions
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line muffin pan with liners
- Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Make a hole in the center of mixture and add the eggs, coconut oil and syrup. Mix until it comes together and set aside.
- In a small bowl, mash the bananas. Fold the mashed bananas into the muffin batter and distribute into the 12 muffin cups.
- Bake until the muffins begin to brown and toothpick comes out clean when inserted in center…about 20-22 minutes

A Healthier Me!





Each day is a new day to start your health and fitness journey! Eric took this at a Crossfit Comp I participated in a month ago.

I didn't start working out post baby until 8 months postpartum. I was barely dragging myself to the gym and wasn't seeing those final pounds from my baby weight drop off. I was beginning to get frustrated. Then I found Advocare! Advocare honestly gave me the ENERGY I needed! AND provided me with the right supplements to SEE the change I was looking for! It also made me CARE about what foods I was putting into my body. Within a VERY short time I had ladies complimenting me at the gym asking what I'd done! I use Advocare products from our Performance Elite line DAILY!

If you want to COMMIT to see change or if you want to earn an extra $500 a month....please contact me! Start your journey today! You won't regret it! Becoming a member of Team Wright is only $75 and that gets you 3 boxes of Spark and the opportunity to create something great!!

Hope everyone has a fantastic Monday!

The 'You're Gonna Hate Me ' Plyo Workout!

Crazy Hair. Don't Care! 
This girl is too much. Yep, she's having oreos and milk for an afternoon snack!

I personally cannot eat just one oreo if I fit it into my meal plan....I just can't. I am wired to eat the ENTIRE box. Just like I cant eat a few goldfish....I'll eat half the box.

I've been doing some thinking of why I can't reach my goals and it's because on the days I work in a yummy snack....I have no will power and end up snacking WAY too much. I mean it's reached a point to where I know I have a problem and need to take action! Everything is ok in moderation but for me....eating a half bag of goldfish a day is not an option (nor healthy)....and I'm talking about a COSTCO sized half bag :-/

So I've decided for myself...that I'll eat nutritious meals and save the goodies for my cheat meals or days!

I am a little jealous of YOU if you've got will power. The more power to ya!

Another Great workout video for you this week! It's a killer plyo/cardio workout. Try 4 sets of 15 each. and DON'T HATE me afterward.

CLICK HERE to view the video!

Of course this can be done anywhere or during an hour lunch break if needed!

If you loved the Apple Cinnamon Crockpot Oatmeal in a previous newsletter....you're gonna love this snack!

It's super easy AND Reaghan approved!

If you've received a nutrition plan from me...this would count as one protein and one fruit (great for meal 2 or 4).

ALSO...I do add a tiny bit of Splenda Blend for a little sweetness...and you can definitely chop your apple rather than shred (it's easier for Reaghan to eat with shredded apple).

Its been 3 months since my first cleanse and I have to say I was completely amazed with the results. Just amazed. I had some serious tummy issues going on and the cleanse COMPLETEY cleared all of that up. I also gained so much energy...which I needed...because who does't need extra energy when chasing around a toddler!

I've decided I'm ready for another cleanse and will be starting on Monday if anyone wants to join. You know you need one after Labor Day Weekend!

If you're ready to give the Cleanse a try...click HERE! (or you can contact me directly at forloveofacupcake@gmail.com)

You're body will love you for this...trust me!
