What are your fridge staples?

October 9, 2013

I went to the gym last night with my mom.  What an adventure for both of us.  I admittedly will say, it’s been a couple of weeks.  I get into these slumps and it’s so hard to go back.  But as I’ve said many times, once you go back… you want to keep going back.  The first day back at the gym is always the hardest.  Zumba is on the docket for tonight.

If it’s not in there, it can’t as readily tempt you and 3) Eat more protein than carbs.  My body reacts so very well when I minimize my carbs and I mean well! Even when I eat good carbs, my body just does better on protein.  Is that the case for any of you out there?? (let me know)

So the question I have are what are your 10-15 staples that you alwaysss have the fridge that you can mix and match meals? (i.e. chicken, broccoli, almond milk, Ezekiel bread)  What are they? I don’t want to bite off too much, but I find myself with a fridge full of things, yet nothing to make that ‘matches’.  Does that even make sense?

Let me know in an comment or an email… Pretty plzzz! :)

To be honest, that makes me happy.  Happy to know people still care and wanna read my ratchet posts.  That’s another thing… the word ratchet is overused by myself and a lot of other folks from ages 13-30, … Continue reading

Allergies? And back to Zumba

Per my last post, I made reference to my incessant coughing.  Well as luck would have it, the cough has subsided a bit (not altogether unfortunately), but now I have a runny nose and crazy sneak-up-on-ya sneezing.    I’ve never had allergies before, but I know they’re something you can get at any point… damn.  My dad and his side of the family suffer w/ … Continue reading

Cough, Cough, Cough

So it’s been a week since I’ve worked out.  For about a week and a half to two weeks, I’ve had this crazy cough.  I haven’t really had anything else associated with the cough (although today my nose has been a bit runny).  And the thing with this cough is that it’s incessant and I’m almost positive it all stems from postal nasal drip.  Agh! … Continue reading

It’s so crazy how 3 years makes such a HUGE difference.  What I mean is, 3 years ago I really went hardcore on losing weight and it just seemed so much easier than it has this time around.  My body is certainly not what it used to be 3 years ago. And while physically I may ‘look the same’, I certainly don’t feel the same. … Continue reading
