it’s me. so if i’m going to be a nationally known blogger, i might need to blog then, huh. hi. my head is spinning with a full to-do list all day every day and i can’t even begin to tell you how much i miss blogging consistently! even though i haven’t blogged consistently since i started 😆 anyway, i have given my all to these ebooks for the past few months and i am sick of them!! i’m waiting on one last mandatory piece to this puzzle before i put these bad boys on out there. i do thank you sincerely for being so patient with me. if you’ve been with me for a while, you know how me and the balance thing goes… i’m still growing, learning, and getting better. i’m not even gonna attempt to try to play catch up with yall this time smh, but hopefully you’ve been following me on Instagram and keeping up with me there!
and if you are, then you would’ve seen my 1000th photo!!! like you haven’t seen all of these photos at one time or another 🙄 they’re just all in one place now for this nice little transformation collage.
what’s new? the Fit Foodie Finisher silicone bands are finally IN. i am super pleased at the way they turned out! they serve as a token of appreciation for each person that commits to run with me, and hopefully they serve as a reminder to keep up the running habit.
the Esprit De She 5k went down this past Thursday night juuuust before the rain storm moved on in. it was super humid at 6pm but that’s Houston for ya. it was a great turn out despite the weather and it being their very first year! this brings the Fit Foodie Finisher’s total to 40k for 2013 so far. AWESOMENESS.
during my last visit to Walmart, i went extract crazy on accident- i just kept seeing different flavors i wanted to try! i got coconut, strawberry, lemon, butter, almond, vanilla, maple, and raspberry. after i got home, someone posted an IG pic of peanut butter extract. i would have gotten that too had i seen it. anyway i’ve been trying them in my recipes:
i tried the strawberry extract in yesterday’s bowl of oats. i cooked them in water, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, vanilla extract, strawberry extract, cinnamon, and stevia, then topped them with fresh strawberries. Chiso ate that UP!
next, i tried some of the maple extract in those cakes up there. this recipe is featured in my ebook! maple banana oatbran pancakes…and check their stats:
245 cals – 4g fat – 10g fiber – 12g natural sugar – 16g protein
so this pic got a lotta IG love, wow! i’m as excited about this super healthy, low-calorie, sweet potato pizza crust as you are.
i topped my pizza with low sodium pizza sauce, yellow and orange mini peppers, cilantro, zucchini, extra lean ground chicken, and jalapeno jack almond cheese.
and ate the entire thing, solo.
did i EVER picture myself as a published author? heck no! but when you follow your passion and do what truly makes your heart happy, that’s when the magic happens. this book is just one of the many doors health and fitness has opened for me… i’m extremely excited, nervous, yet READY for whatever the future holds! THANK YOU for reading, supporting, and being apart of my journey.
With everything you do, I wouldn’t expect you to be able to balance ANYTHING! I do appreciate all that you share. It gives me hope for a future soon to come. I too desire to blog more consistently. Lets keep each other accountable…. We are different kinds of busy….so maybe that accountability is just really encouragement. Love always, Peach
lol! i appreciate YOU for reading, Peach. and you got yourself a deal! love you girl.
