Day Three Turkey Week!

image

Today I’m going to share a recipe I found on the Internet a while ago, I haven’t got to try it yet but it looks so delicious!

Herb Roasted Turkey Breast

image

Ingredients;

1 (6 lb) bone-in turkey breast, halved and remove the skin.

2 Tbsp. Olive oil

4 Garlic cloves, crushed

2 tsp. Chopped thyme leaves, sage leaves and rosemary leaves, all fresh – or 1 tsp. Dried (all)

1 tsp. Salt

1/2 tsp. Pepper

Directions;

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Rinse the turkey breast and then pat them dry. In a small bowl, combine the oil, garlic, herbs, salt and pepper, and rub the herb mixture all over the turkey breast.

Put into roasting pan, and roast in oven until the juices run clear when pierced with a fork. Let it rest, covered, for about 10 minutes before cutting and serving.

image

Easy and delicious! I think I’m going to grab some turkey breast the next time I go to the store!!!

Keeping Your Health/Fitness Goals While on a Road Trip!

 image

Today I have been making my way to Illinois with my mother, to celebrate my cousin’s wedding. As I was packing last night, I started thinking about what I would eat, because everyone knows it can be hard eating healthy at fast food places and what not.

This morning, I decided to ask some people in my groups if they had any tips for staying healthy while traveling, and I learned some awesome tips! So of course, I decided to make a short post about it, (lol).

image

Breakfast being taken care of by Shakeology, all I have to worry about is snacks, lunch and dinner!

One thing that everyone seemed to agree on, was the fact that if you want to eat healthy food on a road trip, it’s a good idea to prep before you leave! I know you’re thinking that’s just more work you have to add on to already packing and what not, but think of it as a sacrifice for your good health!!

On that note, check out this short list of “travel foods” to take the next time you go on a road trip!

  • Deviled eggs
  • Easy to eat fruits/veggies
  • Nuts
  • Pre-made Sandwiches/wraps
  • Pre-made Chicken/tuna salad “cups”
  • granola bars
  • Crackers (low-calorie)
  • salad “jars”
  • Yogurt
  •  String cheese
  • Trail mix
  • Popcorn

Of course you will want to have a small cooler to keep certain things cold, but you will have healthy and delicious snacks on hand throughout your whole ride!

Another good tip is to keep a reusable water bottle on you so that you don’t have to buy water bottles. Anytime you stop, you can just fill it up wherever you are!

image

I will definitely be trying some of these snacks next time I travel! Are there any tips that you use when you go on a road trip? If so share with me in the comments!

  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 tsp. Salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp. Chili powder, 1 tbsp. Cumin, and 1 tbsp. Garlic powder

Once done, remove chicken and add your peppers and onions and cook until onion is translucent.

Add your chicken back to the pot and add all of your seasonings, stirring until everything is coated.

Add the milk and pasta, stirring constantly so that pasta doesn’t stick.

Coach Spotlight Featuring Emily!

image

The very first coach spotlight! I’m so excited to start this on the blog! Love recognizing others who are doing something great!!

Introducing Coach Emily Biagianti;    

image

Emily is ranked as an Emerald Coach, and has been a coach a year to date!!

“What inspired me to coach was the ability to help people achieve their health goals while being on my own journey. I’ve always loved helping others and this has given me the opportunity to give back. My favorite thing about coaching is actually seeing first hand my clients results. I’ve helped people lose over 100’s of pounds combined, including myself.” – Emily, Emerald Coach.

I love how passionate you are, Emily! I think we can all agree that anyone can use help in that area! It’s hard doing it alone! Emily goes on to say;

“I actually can’t find anything that I don’t like about coaching, except that it does require people to invest in themselves and that holds a lot of people back. Especially mothers, they have a hard time spending money and dedicating time to themselves. But that’s something I love too, showing mom’s that they should invest in themselves. I started with Cize and absolutely love it. I am now doing Country Heat now, and I find it so much more accessible for people because it’s easier than Cize, but you still sweat your ass off! I decided to become Country Heat Certified, so that I can give classes at local gyms, churches and schools, to enrich the neighborhood and help more people!” – Emily, Emerald Coach.

I love that you are doing what you can to help others achieve their health and fitness goals! You’re doing an awesome job, and I can’t wait to hear more about your success in the future!!

Pet Week Featuring My Own Pets!!

So, of course I couldn’t leave out my boys!!!

image

My 3 troublemakers, lol. People often ask me how I deal with 3 dogs, 2 of which being the same age, and still puppies basically. Both recently turned one, so if you know dogs, you know how pups are!

Its overwhelming, don’t let me lie to you! It’s like having 2 bad 2 year olds that have tons of energy and never want to chill! Peanut is spoiled rotten and is seriously no better, lol. He often is the starter of all of the fighting!

image

Peanut is very special to me. I got him at a really rough time in my life, and he helped me cope a lot. We formed a bond as soon as I held him for the first time. When they say, “They choose you, not the other way around”, they aren’t lying!! His bark was the only one that stood out to me, lol. I rescued Peanut from the animal shelter back in Indiana where I used to live. He was pretty scared, but luckily I believe he was taken care of before taken in. I’ve had him for over 3 years now, and I honestly don’t know his specific age, but I’d say he’s about 4 or so. Very loving and lazy :).

image

This is Zolo, my cautious baby. My boyfriend told me to pick out a dog because he wanted me to have something to keep me company and protect me when he wasn’t here, because he often works evenings. I was going through my FB local groups and saw a woman posting about some pups she was trying to find homes for, so I contacted her. We went to pick him up and has had him ever since.

image

Around 5 months old, we had to leave him with a friend because we were going to visit family for the weekend, and it was also Fourth of July weekend. Well, Zolo got scared and he ran away from our friend. He was gone for almost a week until they were finally able to catch him, (he is fast, and every time we came out looking he was nowhere to be found.) We laid some of our worn clothes out for him to smell us, and it worked because our friend would often see him laying on our clothes until he caught him. So glad we got him back! We really thought someone had taken him in!

image

My youngest and silliest fur baby, Raizen, was an accident, lol. I say this all out of love. I saw a post where a woman had gotten a free dog and was told it was fixed, but then found out she was pregnant, and they was trying to give away the mom and all of the pups. After talking with her a little, I learned that she didn’t have the room and if no one would take them all she would have to send them to the animal shelter. This broke my heart, because the puppies most likely wouldn’t have survived there, with kennel cough and parvo virus being so harmful to them at such a young age. So, I talked with my boyfriend and we decided to take one, because we honestly didn’t think we would ever find Zolo again, since he had pretty much disappeared.

image

Also helped find a couple of his siblings homes too! I’m not sure what happened with the rest, and to be honest, I don’t think I want to know. I’d rather just imagine they all have great homes with someone who loves them. He’s my youngest by a few months, but he’s the biggest lol. Such a big baby!!

These are my 3 fur babies and I love them all!! Even if they do drive me crazy! Lol

This is the last day of pet week, but I’m going to be featuring pet week every second week of every month!!! So continue to send in your pet features!!! 🙂

Hooray for the first amazing and successful pet week!!!

Pet Week Featuring Tina Curry and Her Furbabies!

Our 4th day of pet week!! What do you think about pet week so far? Comment and share with me!! 🙂

So this feature is my moms two dogs. I got Sadie when I was young and still in school, but when I moved from home I couldn’t bring her with me. Sadie is an older dog, so she is more comfortable with my mom, so she’s been with her ever since! 🙂

Tina has 2 pets, both dogs;

image

“My Sadie bear and Maddie moo moo.” – Tina says.

Look at their sweaters, though! Lol! Sadie actually chewed hers off.

image“Sadie is a 13yr. old Lab/pit mix and Maddie is an 8 yr. old pit mix. Both were rescued when they were young so I have them most of their lives. Sadie is the alpha and has such an attitude lately….lol”

She really does, lol.

image

“Maddie is glued to me when I am home and sad when I’m not. (I have a camera so I can watch them when I’m not home). She’s very protective and loving, always wanting to be noticed by someone, lol.”

She’s so adorable, lol.

My favorite thing about my girls is that no matter what I am going through, what I have done, anything, I can come home to my girls and they still love me unconditionally. I cannot imagine my life without either one of them.”

I think that we all feel this way about our pets, I know I do! We do no wrong in their eyes and their so forgiving, all they want is you.

Wonderful share!! Thanks Mom, lol.

We have one more spot open for this weeks pet week. If you are interested in sharing your pets you can always comment with your contact info or message me!

Pet Week Featuring Adrienne’s Fur Baby Lilly!

 Today on pet week we are featuring Lilly, shared by her human parent Adrienne Dicus-Stiffler!

Adrienne decided to put together this little video of Lilly to go along with her introduction and background!!

This is our first video share so I am very excited, and it turned out great, Adrienne!!!

“The pic of Lilly when she was a baby was the day we adopted her. The pic of her on the picnic table was her favorite place to sit in the backyard before she got hurt.
The young lady in the picks are of my daughter and Lilly (she barley left her side for the first 2 weeks) and some pics of her in the hospital.”- Adrienne explains.

A little background on Lilly;

“She was found in a ditch starved,covered in fleas and ticks by a very kind young lady (unfortunately I can’t remember her name) who took her in and nursed her back to health and then put her up for adoption. I just happened to have a hole in my heart and she filled the void. One day, she got hit by a truck while chasing a deer. She had jumped the fence after it and my husband saw her. He went after her and by the time he got over the 1 block from our house she been hit. The gentleman who hit her stopped and was directing traffic around her so no one hit her again. She definitely had an angel watching over her that day. The Vet that took care of her was Dr. Louis Lembo at the Veterinary Wellness Clinic in Columbia, Tn. They were true hero’s the way they went about and beyond to save her. So Lilly has cheated death twice. She is truly a miracle girl!”

image

“Thank you for featuring my baby girl, she is very special to me!” – Adrienne says.

And special she is, indeed!!

As you can see, Lilly has a pretty intense story! I’m so glad she found a home with Adrienne and her family!

Lets give her an applause for taking this baby in and saving her!!

Thanks again for joining us on the 3rd day of the very first pet week!! As you already know, if you want to feature your pets/fur babies, comment with your contact info or send me a quick message!!!

Thanks for sharing Adrienne!!!!
