Next in line behind Archer’s egg tutorial this week, I think I got more messages and requests for this recipe I posted on my Instagram stories recently than any I’ve posted before. I was just going about my day, thought of making this while at work, and when I got home I was super thrilled I had everything I needed to throw it in the Instant Pot. It really is one of my favorite soups I forget about. Like I said, it’s super easy and you most likely have all the ingredients at home already. This is my Instant Pot version, but you can also throw it in your slow cooker.
Tomorrow, Nov. 28th is the first day of our Stay Fit Mom 25 Days of Macros Challenge! I hope you’re joining us and ready to kick some serious macro booty this holiday season! If you’re not in one of our coaching groups already, make sure you join our FREE macro nutrition group on Facebook here . We can help motivate each other to stay on track and avoid all the unnecessary holiday garbage that tends to be EVERYWHERE.
We are ecstatic to announce we are doing our second annual Stay Fit Mom 25 Days of Macros Challenge! It was such huge hit last year, and we personally loved the accountability, we’ve decided to do it again. The only difference is this year we’ve added a little extra incentive to complete it! So as you’re stuffing yourself with turkey and pie the next few days you can mentally prepare for this fun challenge to start on Monday!
This is the most challenging time of year to stay committed and hit your macros, so we want to help motivate you to do so. Let’s avoid the few extra pounds most people put on during these next few weeks attending holiday party after holiday party. Commit to staying on track and you’ll be so glad you did!
This challenge is open to everyone, however any of our current clients who complete this challenge will be entered to win a $100 Lululemon gift card! Here’s the details:
I know it’s not just me who feels like this time of year always flies by at warp speed. It’s my favorite time of year for so many reasons(pumpkin EVERYTHING, warm soup, comfy clothes, the holidays, and the beautiful changing leaves!). It’s easy to set your health and fitness goals aside when things get so busy, but I urge you not to as this year comes to a close. Make an effort to pencil your workouts into your day and make them happen. Come January, you’ll be glad you did!
I’ve always bared my soul on the blog. I flirt with the crazy line pretty frequently when it comes to sharing because Krista and I have built our business on honesty and vulnerability.
I’ve been meaning to write this post for months. I can take pictures of my back fat in a bikini 5 days postpartum without hesitation, but this one’s hard. I kept asking myself why is this so difficult to write about? If another woman were in my shoes, I’d be championing her along, so what am I so afraid of?
Bean burrito, no onions! That was my order at Taco Bell growing up every. single. time. With a side of nachos and cheese, ha! Sometimes I even requested a side of beans for my nacho chips, yikes! My point here is that I love pinto beans, and I always have. Lucky for me, they can be made very easily now and they’re very macro friendly! (That’s all that really matters anymore right!?)
“How in the world have you been able to Macro count for SO long?”
This is a question Krista and I get frequently from close friends and family members, and we felt like if they were asking then you might be wondering too.
First and foremost… #GOALS. Remember that one time Krista and I posted our back fat for the Internet? Well, incase you’ve forgotten here are a few gems to jog your memory.
After we posted these photos and let it all hang out in the Putting Your Oxygen Mask on First blog, we got all sorts of reactions.
For most women, protein seems to be the most challenging macronutrient to eat each day. Believe it or not, simply increasing your protein consumption daily will most likely result in a loss on the scale and significant changes to body composition. Protein helps build and repair muscle, it helps prevent muscle loss when in a calorie deficit, it is the slowest macronutrient to digest(which helps burn more calories), and it keeps you fuller, longer. Chances are if you’re not keeping an eye on your protein intake you’re probably falling short. I don’t want eating enough of this super macronutrient to be burdensome for you. Let’s talk about how much protein you should be eating each day, compare some typical protein sources, and I’ll even show you an easy new recipe packed with protein. If that isn’t exciting enough, we also have another giveaway for you today!
Today is my first official day back to work, which means the end of summer vacation for me! I’m super excited to be at a new elementary school this year and get to know some new little faces. I got an early start yesterday cleaning out and organizing my new PE room, which was fun. I’m one of those weirdos who loves throwing old stuff away and reorganizing. By the end of the day I was drenched in sweat, dirt, cricket guts, and feeling pretty good about next week when the little ones show up.
