Sorry for the lack of postings lately, I’ve just been pretty busy with this thing called life This post might not be too long either, but I wanted to check in with ya.
Egg whites with an English muffin, a bit of peanut butter & 1/2 of a banana.
Lunches have been yogurt messes. Best. Lunch. Ever. Sorry..don’t think that will ever change. I just REALLY love them. And for me, they are the perfect size. Honestly if I eat more than that, I get a really sick feeling in my stomach.
Lately I have had to eat a lot more smaller portions- my stomach can’t take anymore. It’s just the Crohn’s disease- pretty normal with that…I’ve just been noticing it a lot more. If I eat more than a ‘small’ portion of something, I am IMMEDIATELY in great pain. So, I figure I’ll just stick to small portions. I would rather it be that way than to be in great pain.
I have a VERY easy dinner recipe for you. Sometimes I love having those super easy recipes on stand by, just in case I don’t have time to cook a big meal, or if I just really don’t feel like cooking. (<– which is rare )
Turkey Sausage & Rice
-2 packages Uncle Ben’s Cajun Flavored Rice
-2 cans diced tomatos, with green chillis (14.5 oz cans), drained
-1lb. turkey sausage (or there abouts)
-1 tsp. garlic powder
-1 tsp. onion powder
-1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
** PREHEAT OVEN to 350 degrees**
7. That’s it!! Eat & enjoy
On the side I made corn bread…of course. I HAVE to have it at least once a week. I’m obsessed, I tell ya, obsessed!
As I’ve said before, the trick is drizzling a little honey over the top before baking
The best part of this dinner was that it was SUPER quick to put together & it tasted good too
Ours was a bit spicy- when I was making the recipe I actually used 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper instead of 1/2 teaspoon- and I think they two of us were on FIRE!! haha! (that’s why I reduced the amount )
Tonight I’m planning to try to come up with another new recipe…we’ll see what I can get into
Workouts have been good-
Wednesday was biceps/ triceps day with lots of running in between my sets.
This morning was legs/ HIIT workout kind of day. I was quite the sweaty mess at the end of it!!
All of us Floridians are missing our warm days- the highs here have only been in the 50s!! ahhhh!! With a LOT of wind. It’s supposed to warm up to about 70 this weekend, but then ANOTHER cold front is coming thru…just in time for Monday morning…ugh!
I got my hair cut!!!
I really love it!! (& it’s MUCH easier getting ready in the morning )
My hair was REALLY dry & just unhealthly, and I wanted to get it in good condition for our wedding. My friend Kayla owns a hair salon, Studio K, and she told me that she would be more than happy to help me get my hair into good condition for the wedding.
It was time to get it chopped! She said there was just a lot of dryness to it, so she used a special treatment. I will have to go about every 4 weeks for baby trims & the treatments. But in my mind it’s TOTALLY worth it. I really want to have pretty hair for my wedding day My hair is just SO thin & fine (I got my Dad’s hair) that it really needs lots of TLC!
She recommended I get new shampoo- specifically for thinning/ fine hair- the brand is called ‘Awaken.’ It is all organic and has things in it that help stimulate the scalp, which helps the hair to grow.
Do you use a specific kind of shampoo? What type of hair do you have? Anyone else out there have very fine/ thin hair? Any product recommendations?
She also told me that I pretty much need to ditch the straightener I have now- I just got one a while ago- it was ‘ConAir’ brand & I think I picked it up at Target. She told me it is AWFUL for my hair. She recommends that I get a Babyliss straightener, so something similar to that.
What straightener do you use? Do you like it? How does it do with your hair?
Any hair advice would be great!! Also a recommendation for a ‘volumizer’ product would be much appreciated
