Being super original here, and making a blog following my fitness progress. For the last 6 months, I've been trying to become healthy. Being a 200 lbs 25 year old, wasn't making me happy and wasn't a positive influence on my life.
Since then, I have become a healthier and happier me. Now I am 184 lbs, and am looking to challenge myself. I signed up for a Tough Mudder, and that will be my motivation for the next six months to be train and transform.
Wish me luck!
Additionally, as most know, the Tough Mudder is in support of the Wounded Warrior project. It is a wonderful mission and any donations would be appreciated. Below is a link to my team's donation page:
Hands down one of the best things that I have ever eaten. I really wanted something with pepperoni but didn’t want to be completely unhealthy. I changed it a bit from the original recipe.
Pre-heat the oven to 375, and heat up a skillet at medium heat. Halve the zucchini, and scoop out the veggie meat. Chop up the meat and the pepperoni and toss in the skillet. Add the tomatoes, and let cook for a few minutes. Line the bottom of the zucchini shells with mozzarella and then fill them with the filling from the skillet. Cover in Parmesan and place in the oven for 12 minutes. It wasn’t as pretty as I wanted it, so I broiled on high for a minute.
Goodness, gracious. So I got ambitious, and decided to prep for 5 meals and several snacks. I get tired sometimes when I get home from work. So let’s see how well this works. I also made lemon water, regular water as gotten a little boring.
Really easy! Pre heat the oven to 450. Mix the spices together, and rub on the pork. Heat up a pan to medium heat with the olive oil in it. Toss in the minced garlic and then simply brown the tenderloin. Then place in a roasting pan or I just used a glass casserole dish. Cook in the oven 20 minutes (I actually ended up cooking it for 30. Underdone meat freaks me out.)
Such a perfect recipe for the person on the go, and I look forward to using it more in the future.
Thanks Buzzfeed and Food Network for this wonderful recipe. Here is the original recipe
So the last week had been a real whirlwind. It has been so exciting with so many positive changes in my life. They haven’t been fitness achievements, but personal and professional achievements just mean that you are finding balance in your life.
This personal transformation isn’t just about changing my health and body, it’s about changing my overall self. I’ve heard nothing but great things about this book. Moving forward and not looking back.
