    Easy Macro-Friendly Cauliflower Mash

    The holidays are upon us which brings a lot of delicious foods! For me, the holidays begin at Halloween with too much candy and then it goes into Thanksgiving – the holiday where all you do is eat. The majority of these foods you find yourself surrounded by at holiday parties and get-togethers, usually aren’t very macro-friendly or the healthiest. If you’re anything like me, then you prefer having some options that are slightly healthier than your traditional green bean casserole and sweet potatoes with marshmallows. That’s where this easy, macro-friendly mashed cauliflower recipe steps in! Now even I’ll admit that the holidays aren’t about eating healthy foods, but rather enjoying…

    Fitness Gift Guide

    It’s the holidays which means it’s gift giving season! In a perfect world, I would have had this gift guide up a bit sooner, but we all know how the month of December goes – holiday parties, dinners, shopping, all while trying to maintain our normal work and gym schedules. All of these picks I personally recommend and own myself as part of my fitness routine. Most of my picks are pretty affordable and also quite basic, but they’re all items that any fitness lover would appreciate in their gym collection. So hopefully this helps anyone that has some last minute shopping to do in the next week or so.…

    Goodbye 2016

    As I get older I swear time flies by even faster and 2016 has honestly been a blur. I’m writing this post a few days before Christmas and I keep thinking I still have two weeks left in 2016 to wrap up everything that’s on my to-do list. Wrong. I only have one week and Christmas day is completely booked with family events. Hopefully I can catch up on my list of things to do on my extra day off this week. Last year I posted two lists of goals I wanted to achieve in 2016: my New Year’s Resolutions and 2016 Fitness Goals. I think it’s important to take time to reflect…

    New Training Program

    One day I woke up and decided to change my training program – again. A while back, I shared a post all about Why I Lift, and I still stand by what I said in that post. That doesn’t mean I can’t continue to grow and improve – I want to always be improving at my fitness goals and in my life as a whole. As I’ve been thinking about new goals, I’ve decided to challenge myself to go outside of my comfort zone and start training more in a bodybuilding style rather than for strength. Strength lifting and powerlifting have always been what I’ve excelled and I love it, so I’ve stuck with it. Around…

    Favorite Go-To Meals | December 2016

    It’s hard to resist all the delicious treats around almost every corner you turn this time of year. I know my workplace gets indulgent treats nearly every day in the weeks leading up to Christmas, and there’s no way I’m alone in that. When I’m not eating all of the delicious treats around me and eating out for a special gathering, I’m focusing on eat clean, wholesome meals. Then I don’t feel as bad when I have a savory or sweet meal. This time of year also tends to be pretty busy with holiday preparations, parties, and the days are shorter making getting to the gym a little harder. Lately for meals at…
