I had to miss today’s class due other commitments so I thought I would share some of the new foods I’ve been trying out since I started Body Back. One of the main things I really love about this program is that the class doesn’t end when the scheduled time is over. The food log and workouts must continue after class in order to really get the desired results.
Every week the other moms and I talk about what new foods we’re trying out in the kitchen and will share recipes. Here are a few of the shared recipes:
Frozen Veggie Breakfast Burritos
- 1 c onion, chopped
- 1 red pepper, chopped
- 1 c mushrooms
- Additional vegetables based on preference

Although I don't love getting my measurements taken or stepping on a scale, I'm excited to see what changes after 8 weeks. Is it weird that I am motivated by my future self? I want to be really proud of myself in 8 weeks, so I'm willing to really push myself and challenge myself.
We also set goals for ourselves. In an effort to really be held accountable and actually follow through on my goals, I'm going to share a few of them with you.
1. Be able to do 50 push ups
2. Have only one dessert per day (reduce sugar intake)
3. Prioritize clean eating, regularly
As you can see, a couple of these goals will be ongoing with no set end date. I need to be realistic...more
