About as attractive as waking up in a skip after four days on the sesh. I mixed tuna with last nights butternut sauce (hot) on top of Deirdre’s bread 🍞 (grilled) and a little salad to cover up the carnage. Hunreal!

“I’ll start tomorrow”, I’ll start Monday”, I’ll start after the holiday season”.
I’ve found myself in this mindset before, and I’m sure you have as well.
I think it’s very common, especially when speaking about embarking on a self improvement journey of any kind.
Using one of those excuses listed above, actually gives us the ‘permission’ to keep on slacking off; because we’re telling ourselves that we’ll eventually do it.
We’re rationalizing our excuses.
One thing I had to learn is that there will never be a right time.
There will never be a right time to start exercising more consistently, to start focusing on your nutrition, to start making positive changes in your lifestyle.
There will always be something going on.
The question is, are you going to let yourself fall victim to subpar circumstances, and continue to rationalize why you aren’t bettering yourself? Or are you going to make a conscious effort each day into inching closer to the person you envision yourself as?
You can either find yourself ‘dieting’ your entire life (yo-yoing up 30 pounds, down 30 pounds, making excuses, falling off, crashing dieting).
Or you can get it right one time.
That one time is all it takes. All you have to do is figure out what works for you, and get that right, one time. That’s it.
And once you get it right, you’ll never have to diet again. Because you will have implemented, and installed various systems and habits, that allow you to thrive under any circumstances; systems and habits that will be far too strong to falter when you are challenged.

I went to a new fitness class last night 💪it was a Hiit style class but you were hooked up to a heart rate monitor and had to stay within a certain range while it was blasted on a screen for all to see 🙈 basically there was no room for slacking 😢😓 it was hardddddd 😂
I knew I would be starving for my dinner after and want it right away, so while I’m on my healthy cooking kick, I thought I’d quickly prepare my dinner put it in the oven on timer so ready for when I get back.
This dinner was so so easy, ✅ Put chicken thighs, asparagus, tomato’s and new potatoes all in a bowl season with salt and pepper. (The recipe I followed put whole grain mustard on the potatoes, I’m not a fan so left this out but you could add it) you could add any spice you wanted to at this stage. ✅ Put into a baking tray, I then drizzled a bit of olive oil and garlic infused olive oil all over. ✅ I then did a low temp in the oven for 55mins but that was because I was timing it for after my class.
And I must say it was yummy a great after workout dinner.
If you’ve got any healthy recipe ideas guys please share as I’m sure I’ll run out soon 😂 #healthymeals#postworkoutdinner#hiittraining#mealprep

❄️ Here’s some comfort food comin atcha that’s perfect for this colder weather. .
Whipped this up last night and I had a very happy home💓
Slow Cooker Ham & Potato Soup
6 small russet potatoes, diced
2 large carrots, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 yellow onion, diced
16 oz 96% lean diced ham (picture in comments)
4 cups chicken stock
1.5 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 c flour (or gluten free flour)
1.5 c milk
1/2 c light sour cream
Add potatoes, carrots, celery, onion, ham, salt, pepper, and chicken stock to crockpot and cook on high 4-5 hours.
After 4-5 hours mash about 1/3 of potatoes and mix in flour, milk and sour cream. Cook on high for an additional 15 minutes.
I also ended up adding extra garlic salt and pepper to taste after it was finished. 📝 Some side notes: you may see the milk, sour cream, potatoes, and flour and think this is super high in calories but it all comes down to amount and ways to save calories where you can. This HUGE batch of soup only has 1/4 c flour and 1/2 c LIGHT sour cream👌🏼 For example—using milk instead of heavy cream and using light sour cream in place of full fat sour cream. I can’t vouch for how it will turn out, but you can always experiment using things like almond milk/coconut milk and Greek yogurt if you’re dairy free or looking for other alternatives.
One week from today!!! Free Thanksgiving donations-based workout @endorphindenver Eastbridge. All proceeds go to @projectangelheart .
In August, my amazing mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. When she had her surgery in September, I flew out to be with her during recovery. While I was there, one of the biggest ways I wanted to support and help out was by cooking and preparing healthy meals. If you know me, this is what I love to do, and I truly believe that hearty, nutritious meals help support the healing and recovery process in most situations. After I left, so many amazing friends and family stepped up and brought meals as well, but I think about people that do not have that consistent support during those difficult times.....
This is what this amazing non-profit organization @projectangelheart does. They make home-made, healthy meals for people with severe illnesses. .
Let’s workout for a great cause and support by helping to give others a better holiday season ☺️ ❤️Sign up at myendorphin.com Spots are filling up fast! So excited! .

Confused about what to eat?
I wish this wasn’t a problem.
What you eat is sort of not important, and sort of important at the same time. Now here I am confusing you already.
Bear with me.
You can lose fat eating *whatever* you want.
Studies have been done. Fat loss and health markets have been improved on diet of twinkies, pizza and fast food — and diets of *only* those foods.
As long as calories (and to some degree protein) are In the right spot. Consuming less than your body uses, you lose fat.
And if you have too much fat, losing some improves your health.
This all assumes you keep your calories under control.
And even if some professors have done it on Twinkie diets, it doesn’t mean it’s realistic for you.
And it doesn’t mean you’ll feel better with actual natural food.
For best and most realistic results:
☑️ focus on foods your great grandparents could eat.
☑️ focus on foods that ran, swam or came from the ground
☑️ find what works for you in terms of how many treats and “junk” you can handle.
☑️ avoid seeing those treats or “junk” as bad or fattening. But do pay attention to what happens when you consume them (do you start overeating?)
Mostly real natural foods. More cooking your own food. And find the amount of other stuff that works for you.

Weight Loss vs Weight Gain with Pulled Pork with Green Beans and Roasted Sweet Potatoes from The Meal Prep Manual - 1st Edition eBook. This is one of the recipes that is getting a major facelift in the updated version of the book. Since originally writing this recipe I’ve developed a new method for cooking pulled pork and listen to me when I say this, it is 105x better than it was before. Revisions to the two current ebooks are being sent out this weekend and Book 3 is also being released! Anyone who has purchased one or both of the first 2 books before the 3rd is released will be getting a copy of the 3rd as a way for me to say thank you for the support 😎
For many of you, especially males that are actively training, 708 calories might be too low for you to be in a caloric surplus. For a lot of females trying to gain weight, this would be a great meal. Making body composition changes is specific to the individual and it is different for all of us. You need to figure out where you stand in terms of calorie balance so you can edit your diet appropriately. If you need help with how to determine this, I have a story highlight called “Calorie Intake” that will help you figure out your need. Go watch it. .
I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how many people have responded to the weight gain side of these posts. I never realized there were so many people who were struggling to gain weight. It’s something that I have always had trouble achieving and it wasn’t until I started actively watching my intake that I found success. When I first got into weightlifting I was 125lbs and I was able to put on 30lbs pretty easily just by starting to lift weights. The journey from 155lbs to 165 took 2 years and 165 to 175lbs was even more difficult. Tracking calories is what provided me with success. I found that I (and many of you) was underestimating how much I was actually eating. If you are stuck give it a try. .
