Are you a “wisher” or a “worker”? A wisher only wishes for things to happen but never does anything to make things happen. A worker takes his or her wish and works to make it a reality. They are dedicated even when it gets tough. They don’t let obstacles and challenges stop them from going after what they want. A wisher gets nothing in return for his or her wish. A worker gets results from the work and dedication he or she put in to make it happen. Don’t settle for wishing when you could be working.

Are you a fan of meatloaf? It is a favorite in our house, although I usually make it with ketchup (a few times with BBQ sauce). Tonight though I decided to make @lizhpatton Power Meatloaf. 😱 It was mind-blowing delicious! No ketchup or dipping sauce needed! Who knew adding a little salsa to the mix would pack so much flavor. πŸ˜‹

On-the-go snacks don’t have to be unhealthy and greasy. One if my favorite snacks to grab on the run is raw nuts with raisins. Plan ahead by creating this mix and dividing it between individual snack bags. 😊

I will confess that this weekend was a busts for me as far as my nutrition goes. We had a prayer group at our house Friday night & Sunday morning, and the snacks were in abundance. And then yesterday we ate at my in-law’s house for Easter lunch and I are more than I should have. Today my body was not energized and felt heavy. I didn’t want to get my workout in. But I did it anyway. Why? Because I know that after I workout I feel a lot better. I feel energized and strong. I know that the best way to counteract a bad food weekend is to get back on the exercising and eating clean wagon. So that is what I am doing this week. Back to my workouts and healthy eating. Who’s with me?

What do you think of my new do? Every girl needs to feel pretty! There is something about getting your hair done that makes you feel pretty. At least for me. πŸ˜‰ I love being a girlie girl. Make-up, hair, nails, fashion. The whole nine yards, I won’t lie. Go ahead…do something that makes you feel pretty!

Who likes a good breakfast smoothie without added chemicals? I do! I do! This smoothie is delicious and super easy to toss in the blender and whip up. I’m thinking you could also use this to make homemade fudgesicles too! Give it a try. 😊 Happy Saturday!

Your car won’t run without gas and a good battery. The TV won’t work if it isn’t plugged in. The stove won’t cook your food if you don’t turn it on. And the lawnmower won’t cut your grass without blades. So why would you expect your body to be fit and healthy without exercising and eating the right foods? ❓❓❓ Hmmm….Makes you think right? Not everything is just given to is. Matter of fact MOST things aren’t just handed to us. We have to work for what we want. Just like everything I mentioned above, our bodies won’t work properly and we won’t get the results we want without putting in the work. There is no shortcut. I don’t care how many diet pills are available. I don’t care. I don’t care how many celebrities endorse them. If you don’t put in the work, it won’t work for you. And let’s be honest, we all know those celebrities have personal trainers. Just sayin’ πŸ’ Make it work for you by doing the work. Happy Thursday my fab friends!
