Insanity Max 30 REVIEW

The holidays are just about OVER and everyone can now resume their regular schedules and routines! I don’t know about you — but I am a creature of habit and when my routines and schedules get changed, I feel a little uneasy! 😉 I am glad that this week will be back to normal and that I can finally have my routine back! The holidays were fun and I loved being able to see family and friends………..but I also love my own schedules! 😉

I am entering into week 3 of Insanity Max 30!! The first two weeks were a little difficult because 1. its a new program and I needed to adjust and 2.) the holiday temptations were EVERYWHERE!!! I did pretty well — I did have 2.5 glasses of vino on Christmas and did my best to stick to the eating plan. Let me tell you that it had a SERIOUS effect on my workout the following day!!! I was struggling!! I did it but it was rough. It just goes to show that diet and exercise go hand in hand!!!  I did eat clean and only had a few bites of hubby’s pie! I was pretty proud of myself haha!! Trust me — it could’ve been MUCH worse!! I just kept thinking — think about how you will feel tomorrow if you were to have an entire piece of pie! Also — I want to SEE results from this program and am DEDICATED to that and pie doesn’t necessarily fit into that mold! 😉

I have noticed that with each week, and with each workout — I get stronger!! It is such an awesome feeling!! I keep maxing out longer and longer and THAT in and of itself is progress to me — especially because I am NOT modifying!!! I will say — my stats have not changed one bit and I NOT letting that discourage me!!! My clothes are feeling looser and I am getting stronger with each workout and that is an AMAZING feeling!!

progress

 

SO — now that the Holidays are OVER and the routine is pretty much back (after NYE I’ll be SET!!) — I am bound and determined to have results from this program!!! I will be posting my 30 day results in 2 weeks!! EEEEEEEKKK!!! Scary – lol! Every day I push play, and follow the nutrition, have my Shakeology and get my sleep — I am one day closer to the finish line! This is a 60 day program and it promises serious results! Six more weeks — that is IT!!! I have a feeling that it will fly by. Each day — you need to DIG DEEP and PUSH yourself. When you feel like you can’t do anymore, do three! When you TELL yourself you can — you are halfway there!!!

mind over matter

 

NUTRITION is 80% of your results!! You cannot outrun your fork!! I am so glad that the holiday temptations are OVER and I have literally thrown away the extra cookies and cakes so that they won’t speak to me in times of weakness!! lol Clean eating will allow you to have HUGE results!!! Clean foods like fresh fruits and veggies, along with lean proteins and whole grains will work WITH your body, give you sustaining energy and help you lose pounds and inches naturally. No more spray butters, low-fat or fat-free anything!! No more soda or sugary drinks — eat CLEAN and your body, mind and energy levels will be fulfilled!!!!

Saute the turkey separately. I added extra peppers and onion to the turkey as it sauteed. I sauteed the peppers and onions in coconut oil first for about five minutes and then added the ground turkey.

Once the veggies in the broth were tender, I added the fully-cooked ground turkey with peppers and onions to it.

I then added the tomato paste, diced tomatoes as well as the chili powder, cayenne pepper and garlic powder and mixed all together.

I let this cook on a low heat all afternoon…..about 5-6 hours! This could easily be a crock-pot meal too!

I served with smashed cauliflower and added a little greek yogurt on the side as a substitute for sour cream! It was SOOO good!!! Leftovers for tomorrow!! 😉

Be sure to leave a comment if you try!! ENJOY!! XOXO

Clean Coffee

I LOOOOOVE my coffee in the morning! I love to wake up and smell the coffee….literally!! haha!! I am a clean-eater and I I don’t want to have to resort to a chemical-laden coffee creamer.

 

Typically, I can drink it black with a little cinnamon and maybe a teaspoon of coconut oil. The other morning I decided to blend them all together and see how that concoction turned out. IT WAS DELICIOUS!!!!! It tasted like a coffeehouse drink that you pay $5 for. It was creamy and delicious and I will be doing this every morning! 😉

clean coffee

 

*12 oz of coffee

*one tsp of coco oil

*cinnamon to taste

 

BLEND all together and enjoy!!

SO SO GOOD! 😉

Healthy Alfredo Sauce & Spaghetti Squash Recipe!

I have had some challengers asking for healthy recipes and this one seemed to spark a lot of interest. Not only is it healthy, it is low in calories and delicious!! Post below or email me at saraspisak11@gmail.com if you give it a try — let me know if you like it or what could be added! 🙂

**Clean-Eating CREAMY ALFREDO**

Ingredients:
1 Spaghetti Squash
1/2 cup Milk of your choice (Whole milk will make the sauce thicker, rice milk will make it thinner. Do whateva you want!)
1/2 cup Greek Yogurt
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
1/2 tsp Garlic Salt

Directions:
*Bake the spaghetti squash at 350 degrees until soft (generally about an hour).

*Next, whisk the greek yogurt & milk in a saucepan over a low heat.

*Add in the parmesan and garlic salt and continue to whisk until there are no lumps. Keep the heat very low and whisk occasionally. The sauce will thicken a bit as it warms, this usually takes about 5 minutes.

*Once the squash is thoroughly basked, scrape it out & place the contents into a large bowl. After the “alfredo” is at your desired consistency, pour over the squash, mixing as you go.

ENJOY!

 

XOXO
