I just concocted a recipe on the fly (I was hungry). I’m sure someone else has thought of this first, but I don’t care.
1/2 cup greek yogurt, plain
4-5 strawberries sliced
1/2 scoop protein powder (I use vanilla syntha-6)
2 tablespoons of ground flax
A little water or milk of your choice to thin it (I used unsweetened vanilla breeze)
Mixed together and enjoy!

I’m trying this carb cycling thing this week, so the amount of grams each day for carbs is as follows:
Saturday and Sunday 25 or less
Each day I have been getting 100+ grams of protein and my fat increases a bit each day as I lower my carb intake. My coach warned me of the effects and that I may be forgetful and a bit fatigued. So far other than craving carbs, I’ve been ok.
I’m still sick with this sinus infection, so I’m at home today. I am going to at least walk my dog this evening and possibly get a mile or two in running.
Oh btw shoutout to my new fit friend Emily over at http://competitionbody.wordpress.com/ she’s keeping me sane 🙂

I am really excited to be apart of this movement. I am all about empowering women and fitness and this ties in both in a really cool and major way.
Declare a goal. Then show us how it’s done.
Together we’re redefining the female athlete by setting epic goals and pushing past where we’ve ever been and where we thought we could go. Join us. Set your own personal goal. Then document your journey by posting videos and photos that tell your story from start to victory.
We’ll continuously post challenges for you. But that’s just the beginning. Show us your journey. Show us what makes your story the one that stands out from the rest. If you meet your goal, set a new one. Make it even bigger. Prove to everyone, and yourself, that you have more than what it takes.
Every week we’ll give away Under Armour Swag Bags full of gear to women who are seriously getting it. We’ll also feature profiles on our home page and in the “Top Performers” section of women who are really setting an example for all of us.
After 8 weeks, we’ll announce the 10 finalists who’ve documented the most impressive, motivated, monumental stories.
Winners will be announced mid-July.
Three winners will be flown to Costa Rica to attend a four-day yoga and surf retreat. In addition to the lessons led by world-class instructors, winners will be treated to transformative massages, spa treatments and healthy, locally-sourced meals prepared by personal chefs. All while staying in plush accommodations looking out at the ocean. A retreat worthy of the women who earn it.

1. Cardio every damn day: I have not been doing my cardio like I should, this week, NO EXCUSES
2. Workout in the AM: when I workout in the morning, I feel better and it’s easier to get it out the way. Plus it keeps my supplements from keeping me up at night.
3. 6+ hours of sleep each night, I go to bed around 11 or 12 each night so I need to be up by 6am.
4. Yoga/stretching 4-5 days this week: I never stretch like I should, and that’s an issue. My muscles are getting the treatment they deserve to grow.
