Despite some setbacks with nutrition (mama is on the struggle bus)… I did eat clean for a good bit of the week, but I also had a few too many cheat meals..

My hubby made some yummy breakfast with toast, dippy egg, and avocado which is simple but healthy, and then sometimes I dug into too many carbs and peanut butter!!

I am ready to get back on track and this meal plan is going to help me.. even if Labor Day is tomorrow!!  I planned for my cheat meal to be at lunch since that is our family get together, then I will stay on track the rest of the week!! If I feel like cheating, I simply have a healthy alternative ready!!

For my workouts, I am doing the Shift Shop home fitness program with Chris Downing! Yes, my belly is getting in the way of some workouts, but I am still making it happen and being pretty successful at it! I love that this program incorporates cardio and weight training, so I am getting a little of both! My husband and I are on round 2, so the workouts are a little bit longer (35-45 min).

I also love to add my yoga in addition to my Shift Shop workouts… It is so good for the mind, body, and soul!! And I do love adding in some yoga poses with the hubs!! Poor guy is probably scared when I jump up and go for a landing!!! HAHA

Sweet Potato Chips

Ok, so I eat sweet potatoes ALL the time!  Not going to lie, sometimes I miss the crunch to chips, but I stay away from them for the fact that they are absolutely horrible for you.  But now, I am able to make the best of both worlds!! Get the crunch and my healthy sweet potato in one!!

I FINALLY bought a mandolin slicer today and already put it to good use!!

So here we go… perfect new snack to satisfy you and help you get the crunch that you may be craving also!!
