Remember my January Health and Fitness bundle i posted back a few weeks ago? Anyways, I talked about my goal to get into shape for my 30th Birthday (which is in June) and so far i'm doing pretty good keeping up with it (I've lost 6 lbs so far!!)!

Saturday was national "Ditch New Years Resolutions Day", but i have no intention of ditching this one. In case you also made the goal to get in shape this year, i want to help motivate you not to ditch your resolution.

So, in what i'm calling my "Mega Fitness Post" i'm going to be sharing with you; my favorite healthy recipes, workouts, music to listen to while working out and more. We can do this together!! And at the end of this post is an AWESOME giveaway, so keep reading!

Let's get started!


Let's face it, diet is key in losing weight. You can work your butt off, but if you are eating junk you will NEVER lose the weight! This has always been the hardest part for me, as i wasn't really taught growing up that you should be eating healthy foods to keep your body going. I've always turned to food to comfort me, when i'm sad, stressed or lonely food was there. Trust me, during the past 3 years there has been MANY sad/stressed/lonely moments for me.

I did it though, i have overcome this! For the past several weeks (ever since i started my healthy journey) I've only been eating fresh foods. Fruits, veggies, and lean meats. I've also only been drinking water. Well except for my morning cup of coffee, i can't give that up just yet, but a few months ago i gave up the  sugar in my coffee and have only been using half-n-half.

Here are some of my new favorite healthy recipes to help you with your diet:

1. Cauliflower Chowder from Damn Delicious - This is packed with veggies and tastes delicious (my oldest son would disagree, but you can't always please everyone)! It calls for bacon, but I don't add the bacon.



3. Homemade Healthy Granola from Bless This Mess - I've made 2 batches of this so far this month and both batches were gone in a few days!! Needless to say, my family LOVES this stuff!! We put it in plain yogurt with some raspberries and we also ate it as cereal (meaning we poured some into a bowl and covered it in milk).


4. Baked Sweet Potato Fries - I love sweet potato fries! I cut up a sweet potato into fries, drizzle with olive oil and kosher sea salt. Then bake in oven at 450 degrees for about 20 minutes. This recipe on Six Sisters Stuff looks good too!


5. Salads - I love salads! I'm really trying to branch out and try new ones. This one from Cafe Johnsonia looks good!



Music keeps me going while i workout. Here is my top 10 list of songs to listen to while working out. (Note - Some of these songs i would not listen to around kids.)
  1. Love The Way You Lie by Eminem ft. Rihanna
  2. Sexy Back by Justin Timberlake
  3. Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke
  4. Roar by Katy Perry
  5. California Love by 2-Pac
  6. I Got a Feeling by Black Eyed Peas
  7. Fergalicious by Fergie
  8. Maneater by Nelly Furtado
  9. Timber by Pitbull
  10. Problem by Ariana Grande

Before the new year, i was on Amazon just looking around, when i came across P90X and it was one of their lightning deals. So i ordered it because i couldn't pass up the amazing price. That was my plan going into the new year, i was going to do P90X for my workout routine. Then Hubby surprised me with an elliptical!! Which i couldn't be more happier about, because it turns out i'm not really a P90X person. I just couldn't get into the workouts!
Here is what I've been doing for working out.

Elliptical - I get on this thing pretty much every single day, it's a great workout!! Lately I've been doing 2 miles each day on it!

Turbo Jam - The 20 minute workout is a great workout for when i don't have that much time!

Random workouts - Sit ups, crunches, jumping jacks, lunges, squats, push ups. I do all of these! I do sit ups and crunches every day, but on my off days on the elliptical is when i do the others.

Food Journal/ Weight Tracker

So like i said the P90X was my plan, so once it arrived i created a P90X journal (for writing down my daily weight and food intake). Even though the P90X didn't work out for me, in case you are also doing P90X i thought i would share what i created with you.

You can download my P90X journal, HERE.

Giveaway Time!!

Whoa, we finally made it through all that, now for the fun part!  Since i'm not using the P90X and instead of it just sitting around collecting dust, i thought i would give it away to someone who could use it/need it!! Right now, if you were to buy it on Amazon, it would cost you $139.80!! I only used it 2 times (i watch 2 different videos each one time).

P90X system

Included in this kit:

12 DVD workouts, a comprehensive three-phase nutrition plan, specially designed supplement options, a detailed fitness guide packed with valuable information on how to get the most from your program, a How to Bring It DVD that provides a quick overview of the system, and a calendar to track your progress.
