Fit Foodie: For the love of food

Food is much easier while not training.  The motivation to cook and try new things fizzles out when you need to properly fuel with things you know that will be safe for the amount of exercise.  I think that’s why I fall in love with the down time in between.  It allows me to explore […]

Fit Foodie: Mushroom Cap Pizzas

Mushroom Cap Pizza I used the below recipe for the larger portobello mushroom caps to make personal sized pizza.  The hubby is not a big fan of mushrooms but he found these to be delicious!  Some of what I added…  Oregano Garlic Olive oil spray on the tops before baking Pepperoni Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms

Be-You-Tifully Fit: Here we go!

It’s go time.  I have done all that I can do to prepare.  I have put in the training hours.  The blood.  The sweat.  The tears.  I have broke down and built back up.  Now there’s only one thing left.  Do the dang thing. As I was working on transitions in the driveway, I began […]

GARLIC “GNOCCHI” https://theprimitivepalate.com/2015/01/25/keto-garlic-gnocchi/ I MISS PASTA!  The fight on that is so very real.  I grew up in a house that had fresh rolled spaghetti laying out on the extra twin bed.  My grandma had sauce cooking.  My pop pop would make these lemon chicken cutlets.  OH HOW I MISS ALL OF THAT!  Now being […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: Overcoming Fear

  The good, bad and the ugly about pushing passed fears… You’re growing!  You’re terrified!  You’re sure you look out of place and are crazy self conscious.  That pretty much sums up the last seven weeks of triathlon training.  Thankfully I have a super knowledgeable and kind coach (IG @theunbreakableangel)  that is spoon feeding me […]
