I'm trying out this new "program" {I'm not sure if you want to call it that... It's not a diet...not a challenge...Just a lifestyle changer..} called IIFYM. IIFYM= If It Fits Your Macros. Macros are your fats, carbs, and protein. It's amazing. 

Check out to get more in depth details!

It's basically the whole 80/20 thing. Eat 80% "healthy" {I hate when people use the word clean when describing foods.} and 20% treat. This system is a beautiful thing. If I want Oreo's, I can have them. I just have to fit them into my macros. 

Like for example, tonight I made something called, "proyo". It's protein yogurt. I had 1 cup of Light and Fit Vanilla greek yogurt {protein}, 1 tbsp dark chocolate peanut butter {fats}, and 2 Peanut butter Oreos {carbs...btw these Oreos are AMAZING. OH MY GOODNESS. YUM.} 
If you're on Instagram check out the hashtags #proyo and #iifym. People get crazy with their macros! 

Don't worry.. I can have this GUILT FREE because I had room in my macros and I knew that I wanted something sweet tonight, so I made room! I didn't starve myself all day. And believe it or not, but I'm cutting and I still get to eat this!! Yes!

For breakfast, I had 1/cup oats, 1 tbsp dark chocolate peanut butter, and 56g raspberries. Raspberries are wonderful. Minus the fact I got like 50 seeds stuck in my teeth... But, I'm willing to make that sacrifice to eat these wonderful things. 

Welp, I'm off to bed.. Had a tough dog training session tonight... Looks like I need some more practice before fair.. {que the panicking}

Beauty Business

In an earlier post, I mentioned about starting my own business.

I'm thrilled to be able to say that I am apart of the Mary Kay team! 

Call me crazy for doing Advocare AND Mary Kay, but these are two products that I whole heartily believe in. That's saying a lot. 

I can get you in shape while looking good. :)

If you feel it in you, check out my website and see what possibilities there are for YOU! { }

And as always, if you have any questions, PLEASE contact me! I enjoy the company... ;)

Back in the Good Life

It's official. I am back!! Yay! I missed my dog. And family.

But, I had such a blast being with my aunt,uncle, and cousins! Texas was lovely. 

Got to take in Seaworld, Six Flags, and the River Walk. 
I had a whole lot of Whataburger {delicious}, Chick-Fil-A {delicious}, and other restaurants that I'm forgetting {also, delicious}. 

I'm ready to get on back my regular schedule!

FitBit Flex Review

I wanted something fun to "spoil" myself after successful 13 years of school. 

 It so happens that I've had my eye on a FitBit Flex for the last month and was super indecisive about getting one.

The only reason I didn't want to get one was because I didn't want to get obsessive over numbers and such. I've had a history of getting quite obsessive over calorie counting (On My Fitness Pal, not FitBit). 

I had my mind set that if I got a FitBit and started tracking my exercise and what not, I would start counting my macros (see below). I mean, go big or go home?!?!

I've also had my eye on a program called "IIFYM". Aka- If it fits your macros. I'll go into detail later.. But, following this program would require me to macro count (using my fitness pal) and that scared me! I did not want to be that crazy obsessive girl again. Making a long story short (until my next post) I downloaded My Fitness Pal and the FitBit app.

Let's just say, I LOVE FITBIT. WOW. Best graduation gift a person could buy themselves. 
That is what it looks like. It comes with two bands (small and large) and the motion senor to count steps. 

It's seriously great. It counts calories, water, steps, miles you walked, active minutes, and how much sleep and the quality of sleep!! 
It's so simple and easy to use. You can download an app or use it on your computer.

If you double tap your band, the sensor will light up and tell you where you are for your goal. It uses 20%'s at a time. 

This is also a fool-proof step counter. I remember I would wear the step counter that attaches at your hip, and I would take it off and shake it so I had more step... :) Mwhahahahaha!!!! I tried that "technique" on this one, and that was a no-go.

FitBit Flex is a huge motivator! It was well worth the investment..

A Month Too Long

I CANNOT believe that it's been a month since I've last posted. 

Hope you don't feel abandoned...

In this last month, I've managed to graduate, get back on the workout grind, hang with some friends, buy a fitbit (WHICH I LOVE and I'll write a little review about it!!!!), started my own business (more to come at a later time), and just enjoy summer. 

Instead of boring you with my words, I'll just bore you with my pictures. :) 
Thor and I before graduation!!

Proof that I did workout! My shirt was a totally different blue color then I started with.

Supporting my buddy Sam at state track!

Banana with Cinnamon Raisin Peanut Butter.. YUM!! 

Took a cat that found it's way to our house camping with us.. 
My moms allergic to cats so I had no choice!

So, that is what my life outside of blogging looks like. Isn't it glamorous?!?
