The Sunday setup on Monday

Good morning everyone!  I’m getting back on my workout routine.  I went to Group Power class this morning and I almost died.  Everything is an increased weight factor and it was hard.  But I made it through.


I wanted to stay in bed but I got up to go.  Sometimes you just have to make yourself get up and do it. I was definitely feeling this way this morning.  I hate these ecards but it was the best thing to use this morning.

Yesterday was a nice day because I actually had time to do stuff.  We did our grocery shopping and made all the food for the week very quickly.  Maybe because it’s going to be short week for us.

I'm making chili. #sundaysetup #fitfluential

I made chili because I desperately want it to get cooler.  By making this pot of chili, I hope the weather drastically changes so I don’t feel bad about eating chili when it’s 87 degrees with 100% humidity outside. I will post the chili recipe soon, I promise!

So here’s what is cooking this week at our house:

Breakfast: No surprise. Egg white muffins and overnight oats.

Lunch: Chicken sausage chili with wild rice and OKRA!

Dinner: Chicken and rice.

Snacks: hummus, greek yogurt, celery, luna bars and fruit

Willie made this chicken and rice dish that smelled amazing. I really wanted to eat it last night and I could have but we had left over chili. It smelled so great! He really knows how to develop some flavors. Hopefully, he’ll tell you all about it soon. If he doesn’t, I’m going to post about it.

I think I’m going to give up on Larabars for a few weeks. They are delicious and good but for me, they aren’t filling. It doesn’t stick with me and sometimes a girl just needs a snack that is going to stay with her for awhile. Now, I’m in search of new snack ideas.

This week we’re headed to St. Louis so it’s a short week!  I am very excited for the next few weeks of my life.  It’s going to be filled with some amazing moments!

What’s cooking for you this week?

Foodie Friday: Let’s make some chili!

Foodie Friday: Let’s make some chili!

I haven’t been eating very balanced lately. Ever since I’ve come back from Denver I really haven’t been eating…correctly. I haven’t had a taste for anything so I’ve ended up eating things like oatmeal for dinner or just peanut butter roll ups. Those aren’t the worst things in the world, but they definitely aren’t the best. This week I decided to get back on track and the easiest way for me to get a balanced plate of food was to make CHILI! I love fall because this is my favorite thing to eat and with the time changing this weekend,…
