My First Meal Prep Meal

Day 1 of the Whole30:

I have been pinning resources, recipes and tips for sticking to the Whole30 like crazy.  I need easy recipes so titles like “recipes with 7 ingredients or less” are attractive to me. I’m not one of those people who skips breakfast.   I’m also not one of those people who cooks…sooooo.  This might be challenging.

For my first attempt, I found this “easy, delicious breakfast recipe and gave it a shot.  For the most part, I just followed the guidelines and made it my own.

You can follow the full recipe at the link above but this is what I did:

I chopped some onions and spicy chicken sausage from Trader Joes, mixed in some shredded broccoli and carrots, added some garlic and mushrooms, threw in some spinach.  You sautee everything (adding the sausage last) and right before you pour into the casserole dish, add the eggs.  I had help from my daughter and Cookie Monster who helped crack eggs mix them!  Bake everything at 350 for 30 minutes.

Finished product:


It tastes great!


I’m pleased with the outcome and will enjoy eating this for breakfast.  It has lots of flavor, the eggs are fluffy and it is satisfying.  It’s actually better than what I normally eat for breakfast.  I give this a 10!  😊



Prepping for Whole30

Bob and I went to a party last night and found out one of our friends is about to start the Whole30 too so we are going to start a support group to hold each other accountable.  She told us about a website Cook with Tessemae where you can order dressings and seasonings that are Whole30 compliant.  This just saved my life because it was definitely one thing I was stressing about!  Anything that makes this easier makes it much more likely to sustain for the 30 days and then to incorporate the best of the program into our daily lives.  Beyond just the seasonings, this website is a great resource and she has a blog, podcasts and more recipes.

Let me know what your favorite resource is for recipes, support and accountability!

3 months on IDLife and Pilates ^^^^


Before starting Pilates and IDLife ^^^^

All of that is CHANGING due to Pilates and my IDLIFE!  I just tried the new products from the IDPerformance Line today:  IDLean, IDPreWorkout and IDPostWorkout and I LOVE IT!  We will be giving IDHydrate a shot today at my son’s TBall game!  Go Pirates!

My family is what got me started on this journey!  I wanted the Energy to play with my babies and I want them to be PROUD of me when I’m around.  I feel like I’m on the right path with my LIFESTYLE change!!  I had given up on ever being fit so it is DEFINITELY not too late and I hope my progress can encourage you to start on your own journey.  I’ve lost 8 pounds since my last weigh in without even thinking about it.  IDLife makes everything manageable without even trying – working out, eating healthy.  I’m not fixated on it like I normally would be.  If you would like more information on IDLIFE, please contact my husband HERE.
