Low Carb Protein Pumpkin Dessert

Low Carb Protein Pumpkin Dessert

It’s officially “Pumpkin Season.” Otherwise known as my favorite time of the year. And thanks to Pinterest, I have an entire board dedicated to pumpkin season with 28 recipes already pinned. (I’ve only attempted one so far.) But having 28 recipes on standby doesn’t mean that I can’t make my own pumpkin-cinnamon treat, nor does it … Continue reading

Crushin’ the Course

Crushin’ the Course

Well, team STACk’d–or this time referred to as Team SIMPLE–did it again. Terri, Cammy, and I drove the 7 hour journey to Brooklyn, NY, and competed in another CMC–Civilian Military Combine. And can you believe it? We placed among the top competitors in this Urban Assault–kicking butt among 1600+ athletes. I’d say “well done VA, … Continue reading

Out With the Old…Crunches

Out With the Old…Crunches

and in with the new…Planks! Well, planks aren’t really “new,” but abs are always a hot topic and I’ve been trying for a while to get people to do more planks and less crunches. In fact, just two days ago, I walked up to one of my friends in the gym and told her to … Continue reading

The Ultra Low-Carb Cauliflower Pizza

The Ultra Low-Carb Cauliflower Pizza

I should say that this is the no-carb pizza. Because unless you count cauliflower as a carb (I hope we aren’t getting THAT restrictive), then this is a carb-free pizza! Is anyone else screaming the word “FINALLY!” ? While browsing on the computer yesterday, I noticed that one of my fellow bloggers posted about her … Continue reading

Guiltless Tailgating Ideas

Guiltless Tailgating Ideas

As I was laying on the couch this past Sunday morning enjoying my Girlmore Girls marathon, I made the comment to Erik that I’m tired of feeling so “fat” after a day of tailgating and that just once, I’d like to do a carb-free tailgate in which I could eat great foods, drink, and feel … Continue reading

Crazy Cheesy Combos

Crazy Cheesy Combos

One of my favorite foods is cottage cheese and I’ve been known to eat it A) every day and B) in a variety of ways. I grew up eating cottage cheese–I remember my dad giving me a bowl of it one day with a big scoop of strawberry jam mixed in. Since then, I’ve been … Continue reading

Work It Baby…Twice!

Work It Baby…Twice!

You asked for it, so here it is! What do I lift, you ask me? Here are two of my favorite plans that I developed a while back. I love them because you hit the entire body in one trip to the gym, and you hit it hard. Most people can’t get to the gym … Continue reading

Finding a Niche

Finding a Niche

I was looking back through my last few blogs and I realized something today: they are ALL about food. Seriously, the last 10 blogs are completely food inspired! Coconut oil, protein pancakes, vacation foods, etc. It made me think. I read an article recently that said if you want to be a successful blogger (or … Continue reading
