Helloooooo out there! And happy Monday! Time to kick off another week of motivation! Which is a little tough over here because I leave town again on Wednesday, which is throwing my workout schedule off once again. It’s honestly been hard to feel like myself while traveling which means I haven’t felt like myself in months. So whenever I’m home, I’m doing my best to get in as many workouts as possible (in a healthy way), stay away from alcohol, and eat at home as much as possible. And since I leave for Myrtle Beach on Wednesday, I’m looking up some local CF gyms to workout in while I’m there in hopes of feeling like myself while eating out for every meal. Fingers crossed I can find a good one!
Anywho, something else I wanted to mention today that I’ve been doing a little different in my workouts is modifying. I’ve been working with a specialist for a while now to work on some neck issues I’ve had and we’ve finally been able to nail down the issues stemming from handstand push up work and any barbell overhead work, so I’ve cut that out for the time being. For now, I’m doing dumbbell work instead or modifying the movement so I’m not going overhead with a barbell (or my body weight). And since I started doing that, most of my neck and headache issues have completely gone away. I definitely hate modifying and changing the workout, but I leave the gym without pain, which hasn’t happened for probably 6 months. So in these posts, you’ll see lots of modifications, just FYI.
As I get a little older and wiser, I’m trying to listen to my body more and more so I can continue with the workouts I love without feeling like total dog sh*t the rest of the time. And so far, it’s working!

What I Ate in a Day:
In the morning, I had a cup of coffee with heavy cream and stevia.
Then later on that morning, I had breakfast at Just Be Kitchen. I ordered a vanilla sweet cream collagen cold brew coffee then a simplicity plate with sausage, sweet potatoes, veggies, and biscuits. I finished everything except 1 of the biscuit.
For lunch, I made cauliflower hummus (recipe coming soon) then a quick chicken salad with sriracha mayo, arugula and green olives. And ate some Siete tortilla chips.
Later on in the afternoon, I made my Greek Yogurt Collagen Chocolate Chip Muffins. I ate one muffin along with a sh*t ton of chocolate chips while I made them.
For dinner, I made sirloin steak that I marinated earlier in olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Then I roasted beets and made a quick salad of tomatoes, cucumber and yellow bell pepper with olive oil and hot sauce.
