Ditch the sketchy processed bottled dressing and whip up this super quick, super easy homemade Greek dressing!
Have I talked about Orangetheory with y’all yet? Ohmygosh I’m obsessed!
It wasn’t a love at first sweat sort of deal but nevertheless I’ve gotten attached. Things are getting pretty serious. We’ve even made it Facebook official!
Since I’m busting my booty in the gym all week long, it seems only fitting that my eats follow suit. While the occasional pizza Friday is still totally a thing here, I can’t eat like that daily. I feel like working out makes me want to eat healthier.
Less sweets. More burpees.
Wait! Not more burpees! Please no more burpees!
My coach has a fondness for making us do weighted ultimate burpees and they’re oh so brutal. The first round is survivable, but if there’s a round two, three, or four anywhere in the mix you can bet your butt that I’m lying facedown on the ground by the end of it.
Or more often, directly in the middle of it.
The more salads I eat the less I have to do right? In my world the answer is an enthusiastic YES!
