Healthy Reads & Inspiration

I’m back! The last couple of weeks were busy, especially the fun-filled week I spent working at the 2015 GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by GoPro in Greenville, S.C.

This is the biggest bass fishing tournament of the year, and I’m proud of my coworkers for pulling it off in such a great fashion every year! Good times were had by all, including a few glasses of wine and a few chicken tenders, handfuls of trail mix and shared desserts. Needless to say, I’m working on getting back to a better place eating-wise, and I stocked up on groceries to make lunches and dinners this week. Luckily I did a whole lot of walking at the Classic, including one run on the treadmill before the days got too hectic. I forgot to wear my FitBit on one of my busiest days, but other than that I totaled roughly 60,000 steps in six days. That means I met my goal each day!

But I’m looking for the inspiration and motivation to jump back into watching calories; eating more whole, clean foods; and getting back into working out — with a newfound dose of energy.

Here’s a few articles to get amped up for the week!

Here’s a piece I wrote recently on a boot camp-style gym in Homewood, Ala.: Boot camp classes find home in Homewod

And an interview I did with Sophie Gray for about her downloadable high-intensity workouts and nutrition advice.

Some recipes from Pinterest I hope to try soon:

Tex-Mex Breakfast Sandwich
I think I could make these ahead of time and add avocado and salsa just before eating each morning.
Turkey & Laughing Cow Cheese Wrap
I’m not a fan of cucumber, but I would substitute celery or lettuce for some crunch. I can’t believe I never thought of using Laughing Cow cheese on a sandwich or wrap before!
Creamy Avocado Chicken Salad
I think I could leave the mayo out of this altogether and just use avocado to make it “creamy,” then eat this in a lettuce wrap or atop lettuce as a salad.

I hope you have a happy, healthy week!
