Roasted Veggies

Today for lunch I wanted something quick and easy and was craving eggplant...did you know you can still crave items while breastfeeding? Who knew! I've never roasted anything before so I was praying I wouldn't ruin all the fresh vegetables Id just cut up. This was so satisfying! I kept thinking how amazing it was that I was eating all vegetables and they were so good!

1 Eggplan
1 Golden Zucchini
1 tomato
1Tbs Coconut oil
Seasoning (I used Mrs. Dash tomato basil)

Preheat oven to 425. Slice and place all vegetables in a bowl. Add coconut oil and seasonings, stir to coat. Lay in a single layer on pan. Cook for 30-40 minutes. turning half way through.

Paleo Chicken Curry

I've realized I dont really like following recipes...kind of makes my brain hurt! lol I mean I'm sure there are hardly any real original recipes anymore but I like to think I can come up with some good ones on my own! Tonight was one of those times! I had chicken defrosted and wanted something comforting to eat. I had curry and coconut milk...thats all it took.

3 Chicken breasts cut up
3Tbs Curry powder
1 Large onion
1C Mushrooms chopped
1C Carrots chopped
1C Cauliflower
1Tbs Coconut oil
1C chicken stock
1 Can coconut milk

Place oil in pan and add onions and carrots, saute until soft. Add chicken. Cover and cook through. Add stock, cauliflower and mushrooms. Cook for 5 minutes. Add Coconut milk and let cook on low for 10 minutes.

I put some cauliflower in the food processor and blended to make "rice" but didnt cook it..not the best idea. My son and I did not care for it! I may cook it a bit next time!

I did cook up an acorn squash in the microwave (cut in half, in a dish with 1/4c water covered for 10 min) and the curry tasted great over that!


Being half a world away from my husband and most of my family during Sandy has got me stressing. I usually eat and EAT A LOT when Im stressed (Im the girl that gained 15 pounds the first 2 months of my pregnancy..when I was told I wasn't pregnant).
This time I've been trying to focus on good choices, better options and staying sane. Today I was out and needed a quick (Paleo friendly) snack and found these!! Its a bag full of amazingness! I literally walked the isles not wanting actual fruit (too messy to drive with) and just something that tasted great and was easy. Check out those ingredients! Some of the things listed that I LOVE!
  • No sugar added
  • I can eat the WHOLE bag (score!)
  • Kids love them!
  • Cheapola- $2.50
  • Kosher...thats always a plus right!?
These are amazing! There were 4 other flavors bit I tried the mixed pack. I couldn't get enough and finished them by the time I was home! So crunchy they could be used as cereal with some coconut milk. Im going to attempt to make some dried fruit on my own but for a quick snack for school, on the go or in front of the TV these are great!

PPP Paleo

I am finding that going Paleo has been quite easy. I dont miss my oats (they were a pain to make) or my Rice (again I hated making it). I do miss my sauce! Its been 3 days and I don't feel like too much has changed in my eating and I feel great! The fact that I don't have to look at ingredients is nice! I just eat REAL FOOD...crazy concept huh? the last couple days have looked a bit like this:
M1: Omelet with spinach and tomato
M2: Nuts
M3: Salad and veg with oil, vinegar and mustard dressing
M4: Seaweed
M5: Chicken in mustard dressing marinade with good!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween FIT family!! This time last year I was just about to start eating clean...Nov.1 and I never looked back! So glad I made the decision to get and stay healthy!
Hope everyone is still on the healthy track and not going crazy on a sugar high! And because almost everyone has a pumpkin, here are some great moves that will switch up your routine before indulging in some chocolaty goodness!

Monday Mommy Transformation

What was your life like before you started your journey to better health? 
My life wasn't terrible. For the most part I enjoyed it and lived very carefree. I had a wonderful husband and two beautiful, healthy children. But there was a lot of self doubt. Wondering if I'd be able to keep up with my kids if I continued in my current state. Wondering if I could ever truly love myself the way I was.

What motivated you to make a change?
I distinctly remember a conversation with a friend upon my husband receiving orders to Guam. "All of the mommies are very into fitness here," she said. Honestly, hearing that was like a terrible nightmare for me. I had visions of sitting on the beach, pale and tired looking, wearing my 'mom suit.' It was then I knew something had to give. I started the Couch to 5K program in May 2011 but didn't pick up weightlifting until November 2011. Though I have not continued to run since completing C25K in July 2011, I credit that as my official 'start.' 

How do you involve your family in your journey? 
Though I do most of my workouts during school hours, there are times I utilize the family fitness room at our gym. My five-year-old son will often stand beside me using the small dumbbells and telling me about his big muscles. He has witnessed my transformation from the start and enjoys looking at my pictures with me and telling me how I'm shrinking. Also, being fairly new to clean eating myself, I am striving to slowly change the eating habits of my children to match my own. There is a lot of trial and error, and they do have the occasional happy meal, but I am looking to help them strike a balance so that they do not struggle with food addiction the way I have. 

What is your biggest accomplishment so far?
As much as I hate to pin numbers on this sort of thing, my biggest accomplishment would have to be the 52 pounds that have vanished from my body. In all my life, I have never lost more than 20 pounds at any given time. Knowing that I have overcome that number hurdle gives me such a satisfying feeling. And knowing that I didn't subsist on carrot sticks and meal replacement shakes(like I had in the past) and that I have ENJOYED this ride means, to me, that I'm doing something right.

Who inspires you?
Many people inspire me but I'd have to say that my two-year-old daughter takes the cake. I look at her, so young and so openminded, and know that I have to set the example for her. It is my job to teach her, and my son, how to find balance so that they can enjoy life while living it in a healthy way .

When you're in a slump what do you do to shake it?
This one is easy! I go into the gym and I pick up, to the pound, how much weight I've lost. Holding that in my hands and feeling the heaviness of it is like a slap in the face! I've also recently taken on a workout partner. I don't need the motivation to actually get to the gym, but she knows how to push my buttons to get me to work harder if I'm slacking off.

What future goals do you have for yourself?
My functional fitness goal is unassisted pull-ups. I would also like to do more cross training to become a more well-rounded athlete. 

How did you do it?
Balance, preparation, hard work and a positive mindset. There is no secret, nor magic pill that will do the work for you.

What is one of your favorite recipes?
I have a lot of favorites but since I prepare my chicken ahead of time, this one only takes five minutes. It's great for a quick lunch!

1 chicken breast, chopped
1 apple, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
2 tbsp. plain greek yogurt
Salt and pepper to taste

Mix all of those together to form a delicious chicken salad!

Stuffed Cabbage

                 If there is one food I absolutely love its cabbage! Last year I was trying out some recipes with cabbage and I made stuffed cabbage one night. It was really good! This year I went to make it again and could not find the recipe! Don't you hate when that happens? It finally dawned on me that I used turkey just last week for stuffed peppers, why not use that recipe?

I used pretty much the same recipe and it tasted great! I cooked everything and boiled the cabbage. Did I mention I love cabbage?

Stuffed Cabbage
  • 1lb Ground Turkey
  • 1 Onion
  • 4 cloves Garlic 
  • 1 Head Cabbage
  • 1 can Tomato paste
  • 1 cup Kale 
  • 1 cup Tomato Puree
  • 1Tbs Worchestire sauce
  • 2tbs Apple cider vinegar (optional)

Boil entire head of cabbage for 40 minutes. 
Pre heat oven to 400
Saute diced garlic and onion,a dd Turkey and brown. 
Add worchestire sauce. Mix in 1/2 can of paste and chopped kale. Stir until combined. 
Let cool.
Once cabbage is finished separate leaves and lay flat. 
Scoop turkey mixture onto each leaf and roll, tucking in the sides like a burrito. 
Pour puree into bottom of baking dish. Add cabbage rolls. "Butter" the tops of each roll with remaining tomato paste. pour apple cider vinegar over rolls (optional).
Bake for 30 minutes.

I {heart} BOOBS + Giveaway!

October is breast cancer awareness month but we need to be aware year round!
Growing up my mother made it clear that as I was getting older it was important to do your self breast exam once a month when I was in the times she even hung up a waterproof card with a boob on it with instructions! 
I never really took it seriously until I was married with kids. I have had lumps found and checked with (thankfully) nothing found...I guess I have lumpy breasts! Regardless I will continue to check and be checked! 
You can say "feel you boobs", "check your chest" and "get a mammy" (mammogram) all you want but if you aren't actually doing these things you are doing yourself and your family a disservice. 
About 1 in 8 U.S. women (just under 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. Source
What I'm doing (and YOU CAN DO) to reduce the risk of breast cancer:
  • I choose to #livepink  everyday and check myself!
  • I choose to breastfeed to help prevent breast cancer.
  • I choose to stay active to reduce my risk.
  • I choose to be alcohol free to help my chances at being cancer free!
Early prevention is key!

Safe Postpartum Running

Now that I am back to working out (almost 2 weeks in!) Ive been thinking about what I want to accomplish in the next year. I have my 6 month and 1 year goals but the one I am most wanting to start preparing for is a 1/2 marathon. I have done countless 5ks and love them but Im ready to challenge myself! I want to properly train for it and feel like I did everything I could in order to do my best.
I've been looking at some training programs but haven't found one that I'm going to go with.

I prefer to run with a jogger. This gets you and baby out and adds resistance-especially going up hills!
Here are some tips for safely running after pregnancy and with a jogger!
  • Recovery: After giving birth its important to be cleared for exercise by your doctor. 
  • Age of infant: If you are not using a car seat attachment your baby should be at least 6 months old when running with a jogger. 
  • Pack accordingly: Bring items for the baby just incase you have to change or feed. Depending on the weather- bring extra water, blankets, sunscreen, snacks. If its raining bring a cover. 
  • Safety: Baby should be securely strapped in seat. Stay clear of busy roads (especially when wearing headphones) and unsafe areas.
  • Ease into it: Whether you ran while pregnant or are just starting out, taking your time to build you endurance back up will take time. Don't expect to run 5 miles the first day! Find a plan and have patience! 
  • Sole Sisters: Most cities have running groups like that you can join or find some friends to jog with around your neighborhood. Having support and accountability is the key to success! 
Some great running sites:

I've decided that it would be fun to take part in a clean eating / Paleo challenge. I've been eating clean for the last year now and I love that I'm actually one of those people that can say its a lifestyle. It just comes naturally and I don't really put much thought into it anymore!

Going Paleo...that's a whole new world for me. I would need to eliminate my grains: brown rice and oats ( I eat both daily), Dairy: yogurt(I don't eat often) and cottage cheese. I'm still looking into it and learning the spa and fonts but I think to just try it would be good. I love doing this so I can speak to an experience and have my own opinion and understanding. It starts Monday so hopefully by then I'll have everything in order!

In the group of girls doing this challenge I will be checking in daily with workouts, eating and how things are going. Along with being held accountable It'll be nice to see what everyone else is up to and how they are doing! I look forward to swapping recipes and tips! 
Here are some helpful sites to get more information.

Monday Mommy Transformation

What was your life like before you started your journey to better health?  

Well... I have been over weight my whole life, pretty much beginning when puberty struck. I was always "big boned" But my weight really ballooned when I got married. I really never realized how miserable I was...even at the beginning when we were "happy". 
I was obese, my highest weight being 236lbs..not pregnant!  I went up and down many times, never getting lower than 190lbs.  Well, long story short, after a decade of being in a difficult marriage, struggling with infertility, financial problems, etc (everyone has their struggles, mine are no worse) I separated from my husband in July 2009. That was a rude awakening for me. I struggled badly with my new life as a single mother.  

How do you involve your family in your journey?  
Well, I enlist family support to give me time to run while training for a half marathon.  I couldn't do it without my "village".  My kids are a part of  the everyday..they go to weight watchers meetings with me, help me prepare healthy meals and snacks, etc.  Their current favorite thing: roasted veggies!

What is your biggest accomplishment so far?  
    In general:  Being  a good,healthy example/role model for my two children (ages 5 and 9) is by far my biggest accomplishment.  I am showing them how to take care of themselves by taking care of myself.  They are happier because I am happier!
   Health related:  I reached my goal weight this fall and am maintaining under my goal.  I weigh less than I did in jr high now at 147lbs.  I exercise regularly and I am training for a half marathon (completing this will be a huge accomplishment.  I can't wait!).

Who inspires you? 
 I have a friend (Hi Tracey!) who I met along my way in this weight loss/health journey.  She is around my age.  She suffered a stroke recently and since has taken charge of her health and has lost over 100 lbs so far.  I would post online about my runs..and she would post about her walks from one end her driveway to the other.  I know if she could run, she would put me to shame daily.  She gives maximum effort all the time despite her health challenges.  She is kicking butt!

What future goals do you have for yourself?
Fitness related...My very short term goal is to run my first half marathon on Oct 21.  After that, continue to maintain my weight loss and my running for my second half on my 39th birthday in February.  

Simply put, how did you do it? 
 Weight watchers, couch to 5k running program were the two main things.  I have gone past the 5k distance now, but if it were not for that program I would not be able to run more than 60 seconds at a time!  Those two programs have changed my life!

What is one of your favorite recipes?
Slowcooker lentil polenta stew

1.5 cups brown lentils (rinsed and picked over)
2 onions sliced
1 large green pepper, diced
4 garlic cloves, sliced
1 can plum tomatoes with juice
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1.5 cups vegetable broth
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 cup quick cooking Polenta
Layer lentils, onions, green programs garlic in slow cooker. Halve tomatoes and add to cooker with juice. Sprinkle with oregano, pepper flakes, and salt. Pour in broth and vinegar. Cover and cook on low for seven hours or until lentils are tender. Serve over Polenta (I stirred it in!)
Serves 6. Per serving... 300 calories, 1 gram fat, 57 gram carb, 15 gram fiber, 16 gram protein

This Week in Workouts

Now that I am close to being cleared at my 6 week check up I wanted to start sharing This Week in Workouts with everyone! I had my son on September 16 and took 4 weeks to relax, re-coop and spend everyday with my husband loving on our babies!
Morning Routine!
I knew starting after being out of it for a month would be a lot so I needed to start slow and work my way up. The old me would have taken off running. Here is a look at what went on in my week!
Its not much but it'll do until Im cleared...1 week left!

Monday: 2.5 mile walk
Tuesday: 2.5 mile walk
Wednesday: 3.1 mile walk
Thursday: 3.4 mile walk
Friday-Sunday: bowling and family time!

Hopefully this next week we'll go farther. I think the only thing that puts a damper on things is the heat! I worry about the baby more than anything.
Hopefully this next week we'll get some clouds and a break from the heat!

Stuffed Peppaaas

Whenever I have ground turkey I am always so conflicted with what to make! I have so many ideas and recipes that I want to try that sometimes its hard picking one. Then I remembered I got bell peppers on sale and should probably use them (I bought more than my fare share). These turned out so well! I was quite impressed with my "winging it skills" so I wanted to share!

Stuffed Peppers

  • 1Tbs coconut oil
  • 4 Bell peppers
  • 1lb Ground turkey (any meat will do)
  • Onion-chopped
  • 4 Garlic cloves-choppped
  • 1C chicken stock
  • cumin
  • worchestire sauce
  • 1/2C tomato paste
  • 1C Cooked Brown Rice (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put coconut oil in pan. Add garlic and onion and turkey. Cook through. add 1/2 cup of stock and tomato paste. Cook for 5 minutes. sprinkle some cumin and a splash or two of worchestire sauce. Stire

Wash then slice peppers in half long ways (so you have 2 boats). Clean out and fill with turkey mixture.
Line pan with tin foil and pour remaining broth in pan. Place filled peppers in pan cover tightly with foil (I fold up the sides of the bottom foil to keep the stock around the peppers and crimp it to the piece of foil on top)

Bake for 35 minutes and top with cheese (I broiled the cheese) ...and you can leave the cheese off and top with more tomato paste if you'd like to keep it clean!

Winner winner...guess whats for dinner!

This past weekend I headed to the grocery store for some sweet potatoes for meal prep. Well, I ended up buying everything BUT sweet potatoes! I was so irritated but it was rainy and late in the day so I decided to make do with the 2 that I had.
I have seen people posting about making fries with them so I hopped on Pinterest and looked up a Paleo recipe! I found a couple but the one that seemed easy enough was from Paleo Diet Lifestyle.

I dont really care for french fries in general so when I wanted to make some of my own I had mixed feelings about it. After trying these sweet potato fries- I am in LOVE! These are so delicious and its a nice snack to have and because one sweet potato makes so many fries it feels like you're eating a lot!
  • Oven @ 425 F. 
  • Coat sweet potato slices with coconut oil, salt, pepper, and herbs (I used a chipotle seasoning I had)
  • Put on a tray in one layer evenly
  • Roast for 30 minutes
  • For crispier fries cook for another 5-10 minutes and test again

Staying active

Even while you are pregnant its important to stay active! This is the best time to do it for your body and baby and continuing exercise throughout pregnancy reduces the risk of obesity, gestational diabetes and preeclampsia.

Please check with your doctor when starting any activity during pregnancy. 
If you are a beginner to working out, especially while pregnant, start slow and stick to your level of fitness. You don’t want to over do it and hurt you or your baby. 

Stretching throughout pregnancy has helped me stay ache free. I try to stretch at least once a day and it doesnt take long at all! I feel that due to my constant stretching I can still touch my toes and do most yoga poses with ease at 40 weeks! I don’t think my belly is on the small size either so Im grateful for my flexibility!

I usually stretch once Im at the gym in the morning both before and after I work out. During the day if Im sitting I try to sit butterfly style and once Im in bed I stretch my back out a bit! After a long day, stretching helps ease my body and I sleep so much better! 

No mater what you plan on doing for exercise I highly recommend warming up and cooling down at an easy pace. I walked on the treadmill/elliptical for about a mile before I start any weight training to warm up my body and get my heart rate up without over doing it!

Just about any class that is offered in the gym can be taken while pregnant. With any class, inform the instructor that you are pregnant and most will give you alternate moves or easier ways of performing during the class. 

*Spinning, take it at your own pace. If you are not used to the intensity then stay within your limits or take the speed down. 
*Yoga/pilates be mindful of moves done on your back or stomach.
*Water aerobics: consult your doctor later in your pregnancy

Warning signs
If you have any of the following symptoms while you're exercising, stop immediately and contact your doctor if they don't quickly resolve:
  • dizziness or feeling faint
  • headache
  • chest pain
  • bleeding
  • contractions 
  • fluid leaking 
  • decreased fetal movement
  • rapid heartbeat while at rest
Always perform your workouts with good form and know your limits!

Here are a few workouts I enjoyed!

A year from now..

Now that I'm so close to being able to fully work out (2 weeks to go!) I've been thinking about where I want to be and what I want to be doing in the next year. Only 2 1/2 months until 2013 and I want to go into the new year ahead of the game! No resolutions or promises to be broken!

6 Months from now:
I want to have shed at least the rest of my baby weight- 20 pounds.
I want to have the endurance to finish a 5k in under 30 minutes. 
No longer fit in my current wardrobe...because Im so in shape!
Wear a pair of shorts! 

1 year from now:
I want to be Sweating Pink in a 1/2 marathon or two.
Push my body farther than I have in the past and surpass my PR from last 2011.
Complete 10 baby wearing hikes on Guam.
Get dive certified with my husband.
Run on a pair of shorts and a sports bra!...its been about 7 years since I've done this.
Inspire at least one person. 

After growing a human for almost 10 months I know I have my work cut out for me! If I start now I wont regret it. Its going to take time to get my body where I want it andI cant wait to share my journey!
