Sweet and Spicy Shrimp Lettuce Wraps

My Sweet and Spicy Shrimp Lettuce Wraps are just the kind of simple, fresh food that I love to make for a quick meal….and you will too! At the beginning of the year, I drastically reduced the amount of sugar (and carbs) in my nutrition plan, so I had to find a way to recreate some of my favorite recipes.   This recipe serves 4 and contains 25 grams of protein and only 7.5 grams of carbs.  For me, this is a…

Embrace Your Rock Bottom ?>

Embrace Your Rock Bottom

Embracing your rock bottom allows you to take responsibility for your life, grab the proverbial bull by the horns and push past that place to cross your own personal finish lines! #CrossYourFinishLines When you hit rock bottom either emotionally, financially or spiritually, you have to first acknowledge that you have attracted everything in your life to you.

Why Cyclists Should Carry Hero Kits and Crash Packs + Giveaway

Disclaimer: Hero Enterprises provided my with one Hero Kit for Road Cycling for personal use/review and one Crash Pack for a giveaway. All opinions are my own.

Two Pesto Summer Squash Lasagna ?>

Two Pesto Summer Squash Lasagna

This time of year zucchini and yellow squash are in abundance at farmer’s markets, in neighborhood gardens and in the produce section at the local market. My mother-in-law always grows zucchini and we end up with all the extras when the plants take off and produce way more that the two of them can eat! Two of my favorite Italian sauce flavors are pesto and sun-dried tomatoes. Their flavor profiles just wake up my palate. I find myself adding either…

Everything in My Past has Led Me Here

I’ve been really focusing lately on some of my personal goals for 2016. As I mentioned on Tuesday, I’ve started studying for my AFAA certification and that has allowed me to really get down on paper my goals for coaching under the Powered By BLING brand. I’ve been reading some of the personal development and build-your-brand authors and bloggers which has helped me pinpoint some of the strategies I intend to pursue for marketing, professional speaking, and future livestreaming.  I’ve spent…

60 Minute HIIT Workout

I finally did it! A couple weeks ago, I hit the BUY button and started studying for my AFAA Certification. I’m really excited to be working on my #2 goal for 2016!

Garbage Pizza with Cauliflower Crust ?>

Garbage Pizza with Cauliflower Crust

I remember when I was a little girl, my cousins and I used to stand by my Grandma’s side and watch her make her famous pizza crust. Everywhere she went, people asked her to make them pizza. As kids, our favorite part was making the yeast concoction and sneaking bites of the cut up toppings when she wasn’t looking!  As a grandmother, she always made everyone’s favorite and mine has always been the garbage pie. The combination of meat and…
