Tasty Meatless Meal Idea for Flat Abs

Oh heyyy. So you want healthy carbs, flavorful veggies and a dose of tasty protein all in one epic meal of deliciousness? You want it to support your flat abs goals, but it must be a meatless meal, right? No unicorn meat or other animal protein allowed.

I totally understand. My stomachs can get moody like this, too. Occasionally, I don’t be wanting the meats.

What I’ve done here is simple. Take the spaghetti squash & sauteed greens recipe (sans chicken) and add roasted red peppers. Roasting peppers is gosh-darn simple once you really get down to it. Lazy people will be pleased to realize this.

Then, pare this beautiful bowl of veggies with two slices of warm & toasty cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread smathered in almond butter. This meal paring was yesterday’s lunch. Ezekiel bread is made with 100% sprouted grains.

There is no actual flour in the bread. Ezekiel is a complete source of protein, containing 18 amino acids, including all 9 of the essential aminos your sexy body needs. That’s excellent for flat abs and muscle building, of course. You can find the bread in the health food aisle of your grocery store (and sometimes in the health food freezer section). Here’s the nutrition facts…

…and you know how to goes with me. Eating like this during the week makes room in my stomachs for a tasty treat or two (or three, or four) when the weekend rolls around. I’m thinking French toast & sausage on Saturday and definitely some pie(s) thrown in there somewhere.

Enjoy your meals, my people. Leave a comment if you know of a meatless meal that’s downright delish. Link them, too! I wanna know about it.

Skechers GO Fit Sneakers (you’re gonna wanna see these!)

Oh, yay. It’s my newest pair of Skechers. Aren’t they sleek & sexy?

skechers go fit11 Skechers GO Fit Sneakers (youre gonna wanna see these!)

Skechers Go Fit Skechers GO Fit Sneakers (youre gonna wanna see these!) is labeled a performance sneaker but has proven itself as a stylish work sneaker and casual walking shoe. Due to the extremely bendy-flexy mesh design with faux leather trim, you could slap a beyotch sideways and it wouldn’t hurt a bit. No injury would befall the victim. It’s a super lightweight shoe, ya’ll.

I work in these sneakers. I walk in them for miles on my lunch breaks. I shop for hours in Go Fits. Been caught in the rain, too, but they dry super fast. There’s also plenty of room for you to wiggle your toes. Roomy, yet comfortably snug. There’s not much cushioning, but you won’t feel any gravel under your feet. Somehow the sneakers manage to be super-luxurious anyway. Must be magic.

But are there any drawbacks?

Well, yes. The shoe does best with no socks or for wearing with usually thin socks. A sock of regular thickness turns out to be too thick, which can be a minor annoyance in you’re in the mood for regular socks. There are also better shoes to wear if you’re in the mood for a serious power walk instead of casual strolling. If you’re gonna do that, try Go Walks instead.

Go Fits are much too stylish to be accidentally walking in mud or stepping in a pile of steamy poo. So please don’t do that.

I’ve purchased Skechers GO Walks. They are ultimate in comfort. I own their warm & snuggly Chugga Bootie Boots, too. And now I’m rockin’ the Skechers GO Fit style. If you see these in the store, put down that heavy bag of baked goods. Doesn’t your arm need a rest? Set that bag to the side and try on a pair of Go Fits.

Beautiful Deception

beautiful deception e1398915767370 Beautiful Deception

Her vision was blurred and voices echoed as if far away, yet there they were. Her tormenters stood right beside her. She was barely conscious but still managed to recognize the familiar stab & sting of another hypodermic needle sinking into her arm. It was the third time today. Or was it the fourth?

Nothing to do now but give up. There was no fight left in her. Blurred vision and disorientation quickly became complete loss of consciousness. Her body appeared lifeless. With ankles and wrists cuffed to the gurney, they rolled her down the corridor, back to the procedure room…

Expectations and accountability.

squat Expectations and accountability.

We expect our children to behave.

We expect our employers to pay us on time.

When we purchase a product it better damn well function as advertised.

All day long you have certain expectations of people and things. You hold them to a standard. Hell will most likely be raised if they don’t measure up consistently or fail to follow through on what is expected. They are accountable to you.

But do you place upon yourself the same level of expectations and accountability? Do you make it a priority to honor the personal commitments you make to yourself?

I’m asking you this because I first asked myself. It makes for a good dose of self-examination for the sake of personal improvement. It’s an opportunity to tweak the areas that need fine-tuning. It’s a chance to raise the bar for the end result of greater gain.

When you commit to your health & fitness, it’s not okay to repeatedly drop the ball. And why should it be? When others honor their commitments to you in a wishy-washy, lackadaisical-type fashion, you hold them accountable, right? Be that same person when dealing with self.

This is not a call to action to strive for perfection and do everything right 100% of the time. That’s impossible, of course. Yet I’m sure there is a personal “knowing” on the inside of you whether you are giving something your best effort or simply being lazy about it.

I challenge you to live each day in the most excellent way you can. Not with perfection, but with a personal gold standard (however you define it). Place expectations on yourself and follow through with excellence and great effort and zeal. Be accountable to YOU.

How to Lose the First 20 Pounds

Ooops. Wrong pic. I said lose 20 pounds, not gain it….

greedimages How to Lose the First 20 Pounds

There’s more than one way to skin a cat for weight loss. Doesn’t fried kitty claws in sauteed hyena oats sound kinda of tasty?

You’ll be happy to know that skinning the weight loss cat just got easier. I lost my first 20 pounds with very little information on what to do right or wrong.

I’m now 40 pounds down and, looking back to the beginning, I would certainly do some things different to expedite my weight loss.

So how’s about right now I unscrew the top of my cranium and do a massive brain dump of knowledge that will help you lose those first 20-pounds without you feeling like it’s rocket science. Here are my 9 fanciest tips…
