Another week of great meals from @warriorsfuelfood ! I love having the variety throughout my week and saving time in the kitchen. It almost feels like I’m eating out, except I know the macros to my meals ☺️

All too common. Thursday is probably a better day to meal prep than Sunday... Credit: @tank.sinatra

Name another bikini girl with squat marks on her back. I’ll wait. 💁🏻‍♀️ -
Had such a great lift with @kristimacher this early morning. We have to do it again (with breakfast). 😍😘 -
Shout out to @360fitness and @prince_360_fitness for supporting me through this bodybuilding journey! #oneweekout

I live for breakfast....eat it any time if day. I’ve been seeing this little number floating around the Instagram world and decided to try it myself. It couldn’t get anymore simple-homemade McGriddles!

I simply used my @pamcakespancakes buttermilk pancake mix and made them in my mini waffle maker. Topped with Canadian bacon, egg beaters, cheese and @waldenfarmsinternational syrup. Mmmmhmmm!

Weekends are spent on the water 💁🏼‍♂️🛥🏝☀️

Pardon the fine china-I made these earlier this week and kept forgetting to take a more aesthetically pleasing photo - buffalo chicken balls! A totally versatile dish, these little guys can be eaten alone, on a salad, in a wrap, with rice...the list goes on, and with some awesome macros, they're a great staple to your diet 7g carbs, 2g fat, 30g protein for four of them. Using a higher fat meat would obviously change the fat content so be cautious of that. Also, you could use regular hot sauce versus my latest addiction: Schutlz's sauce.

Here's the recipe:
1 LB 99% lean ground chicken
3 tbsp Kroger break free egg substitute
1/2 c Spice Island Southern style panko crumbs
2 Tbsp Schultz's Gourmet Sweet Heat Sauce
1 Tbsp garlic powder (guessing here, I didn't measure)
1 Tbsp parsley
Salt and pepper

Mix everything together and form into 16 balls on a baking sheet and baket at 350 for 15-20 minutes.

Long Term VS Short Term Thinking 💭 -
We are encouraged to focus on the end goal. Long term. What we ultimately want. When things get tough, we need to remember why we are doing what we’re doing and what the end result will be. I think this is important and keeps us connected to our goals. I believe we should start every morning focused on what it is we want, which can’t help but catapult is towards our goals. However, I think this also romanticizes our goal. It makes our goal seem like some big far away thing that will happen way down the road from now. Too much focus on the end goal creates impatience, dissatisfaction with our current situation, and makes it easier to have an unproductive day when there are 197 of them between us and our goal. Our end goal should remind and propel us, but not become something of “some day...”
-
We are encouraged to focus on short term goals to reach our long term goals. Win the day, focus on our daily habits, be present, enjoy the process, etc. It is true long term successes are composed of little wins each day, like bricks in a wall. However, when we’re focused on the day to day and not our overarching WHY, it can also lead to impatience (“I’ve done X and Y, why hasn’t Z happened yet!?”), burn out, loss of passion, etc as we go through the daily motions without reminding ourselves of why.
-
Like with anything in life, being successful requires balancing these two forces. It is important to remain connected to our overarching goal, all while remembering “someday” will inevitably become “today”. It is important to build daily habits which will result in our success, but not become so caught up in “the grind” we’re left rigid and uninspired. How do these two forces affect you and how do you use them to your advantage?

This suit 😍 with a full crystal back, straight top, bottom, and back connectors, princess middle connector, medium top, and Brazilian cut would be my #dreamsuitgiveaway from @angelcompetitionbikinis ! I love my red suit from them but would love to see emerald with my dark hair 💚

My night time supplements! I take these babies about an hour before I want to fall asleep and I swear my sleep has never been better. I have a hard time sleeping when dieting so I’ve been experimenting with different combos. From left ➡️ right:
-
1️⃣ @1stphorm C-21 is a night time relaxation and cortisol reducing supplement. Formulated with 5HTP, melatonin, and digestive enzymes it is meant to support sleep and recovery.
-
2️⃣ Natural Calm is a magnesium powder meant to be mixed with water. Magnesium naturally relaxes the nervous system and aids in digestion by drawing water into the digestive tract. Most people DO NOT get enough magnesium in their diets and is lost through perspiration.
-
3️⃣ @pescience Symbiont-GI probiotic + digestive enzymes. Probiotics should be in EVERYONE’S medicine cabinet. These are the bacteria that help break down food and keep the bad bacteria at bay, along with hundreds of other things in the digestive system.
-
4️⃣ Ashwaganda is an adaptogen that helps the body cope with stress. I notice a huge difference in my mood and anxiety when I take this. I just feel more mellow and have an easier time staying calm. 1 in the morning and 1 at night!

So delicious, I couldn’t help but take a bite first!!

Happy almost Friday fam!!! 🎉

Sick of plain old egg whites? Try these savory Egg Muffins!!!! 😋🥚🍳 With a few chopped veggies, 20 minutes in the oven, you have 24 grab-&-go protein poppers! At only 33calories each & 5g of protein...I keep these babies handy at all times!!! .
I've been eating an abundance of protein (along with carbs, believe it or not) while focusing on growing these muscles...and eggs seem to be the easiest of all for me to prep!!! Hard-boiled, scrambled, egg-salad, egg tacos, with salsa, spinach, veggies, etc....plain old egg-whites can get old, but there are tons of ways to spice them up to fit your macros!

I pulled out the shorts yesterday! I still have so much progress to make on my fitness journey but there are so many life changing moments along the way; this is one of them. I’ve spent the years since Rhett was born trying to avoid being in shorts and hating my body because I couldn’t find the discipline to eat right and exercise. There’s still a lot I want to change, but at least I can put on a pair of shorts and feel comfortable. I can throw on a bikini and have fun as I swim with my son instead of worrying about how fat I look. I talk about fitness often because it’s absolutely changed my life. It’s taught me discipline, self control, and strengthened my work ethic while also helping me become a better woman and, most importantly, a better mom. #bodybuildinggirls #futurefigurecompetitor #squatsnotshots #iifym #iifymprep #strongnotskinny #momswithmuscles #girlswholiftheavy #liftheavyoftenasineveryday #fitmom #shortseason #summerbodiesmadeinwinter

So many times I get on social media and read about how fitness brought the right people into their life and got rid of the wrong ones. Now fitness has brought some very special people in my life (#mytribe) but it also strengthened my current friendships. These girls have been by my side when it was “Maria needs everyone to take a tequila shot RIGHT NOW and dance on tables” hahah. 💃🏼💃🏻💃🏽 to when I won my #anbf procard..they’ve been right there cheering me on for each occasion 😂😂. -

No matter what my goals are, I always know these girls will have my back, as I will always support them in all they do! Happy #womancrushwedensday y’all! 👯‍♀️👯‍♀️👯‍♀️ lets continue to build other women up, instead of tearing the down. #internationalwomensday #EVERYDAY I couldn’t get through this crazy journey called life without y’all 😘

Me last week:
I’m prioritizing sleep, focusing on my health..wow I have so much more energy..feels so good to get back on track. #crushinnnnit 💪🏽😂 .
.
Me this week:
Stayed up til 3:30 doing taxes last night (I’m fine this is fine🙃) and going to Vegas for 24 hours tomorrow...and I’m writing this caption after a really bomb much needed workout instead of packing lol #whyamilikethis #crushed
sometimes I feel like my life is like a game of whack-a-mole..just when I think I’ve got it under control life peppers in 2 or 7 plot twists. It’s not always comical, BUT looking back on times where it feels I’m the mole and life has the hammer, I’ve always grown through it. Lol wow i just compared myself to a mole.

Ok...time to eat.
Entertain me I need some silliness after tax day stress 🤯 if your life was a game right now what would it be? 👾
