Workout Wednesday mixed with Taco Tuesday!


Yesterday just started off being one of those days that I knew was going to go right!  My to-do list was a MILE long, but I woke up with a smile on my face and it stayed all day!

Also rocking a new shirt my lovely mother bought me for my recent 27th birthday with some awesome light blue skinny jeans to brighten up my day can never go wrong (American Eagle Jeans in case you are looking!) :-)



Month 2 of Insanity has been a struggle for me, emotionally and physically.  It's challenging which is great, it should be and I need a challenging workout but the mentality of the workout is what gets to me the most.  There are times when I know I can push harder and instead back away.  Not always, but sometimes.  Well yesterday I killed it (and today for that matter!)!!!  My heart was pounding, sweat dripping off me and my breathing was very laboured.  I kept telling myself you can do one more, one more than the last round, one more than you think you can and I pushed.  I felt great afterwards!  I know not every day is going to be like that.  We all have our bad days at work, or our days when we would just rather be doing anything other than working out (like sipping on some sangria outside during these last few precious days of heat and sun!) but you know what, when I get my workout done and I do it well, that sense of accomplishment is next to nothing.  A little Energy and Endurance powder certainly helps give me that extra boost too!  I can't go without it now, especially when I don't get my workout in until after a full day at the office.



Dinner was, well AMAZEBALLS! I tried out a new recipe I found and loved it!

Healthy Chicken and Black Bean Tacos with Sweet and Crispy Sweet Potato Fries cooked in Coconut Oil.



I wish I could explain how tasty all this was but words have escaped me so all I'm going to say is you have to try this yourself!  Keep in mind this is heavier on the carb side from the wrap and fries so substitute the fries for something else if you are keeping your carbs light.  Maybe a salad or some type of veggie that you like.

Great workout, great food, great day!  Thumbs up all around here!
