A Two Week Plan

A month has passed since Carlos and I were going to the gym on a regular basis.  We both felt drained and weak while training.  It got to the point that neither of us looked forward to going to the gym.  Not only were we struggling with our workouts, but we weren’t eating as clean […]

Chicken n Veggies Recipe

Early in the week I needed to come out with a way to cook a bunch of chicken I had along with some veggies I had not cooked. This is what I made: I started by cooking the chicken in a large dutch oven (I have limited pots/pans).  I used organic coconut oil. I got […]

Our gym

A quick review of the gym Carlos and I work out at. We are members of Rapid Fitness and have been with them since the fall of 2009.  Rapid has three locations in Raleigh: Glenwood Ave., North Ridge, and the newly (re-opened) Downtown location. The Glenwood location is the largest, but also my least favorite.  Here […]

Chocolate and Banana Ice Pops

Carlos and I are eating clean, and we are limited on what sweet treats we can eat.  Not having these ‘treats’, so to speak, can make it difficult to stay on track with eating clean.  And of course, veering off track will have negative effects on the results we want to accomplish in the gym.  […]

Chicken Thighs and Cauliflower

Thursday’s dinner should have looked like this: My attempt came out like this: And we had side salad.  Carlos’ salad had spinach, mixed greens, cranberries, thinly sliced almonds, feta cheese, evoo and pomegranate vinegar. My salad was the same minus the almonds and I used rice vinegar.   I did a few things differently than […]

Fitness update

The past couple of weeks have been extremely stressful.  I feel tired and not in the mood for much, not even food.  I have been eating, but at times, even though I’m hungry, I feel weak and a bit sick to my stomach.  I’m trying to think positive, but that is hard at times.  Thinking […]
