Taco Waffles... Fiesta in Your Mouth

Some may think that these waffle recipes we're making are "weird" but trust me, they're delicious! These are tried and tested, and would we put a gross recipe up here? I don't think so! The key with the waffles is mixing in a lot of spices and stuff into the batter so it doesn't have the strong waffle taste. If you don't believe us... you'll just have to try it!

Healthy Chicken and Waffles!

In our previous post we mentioned that we decided to get some outside help with nutrition and we signed up with a
nutritionist to give us a meal plan. We were hesitant to sign up for it because we didn't know if it would be worth the money. I just always figured I could eat fairly healthy, workout a lot and I would lose weight.

Getting Rid of the Extra Fluff!

So in earlier posts we have talked about how we have not exactly been the best eaters... I mean we love food! When we looked down at the scale one morning we saw it had reached tremendous numbers and we decided we needed to make a change and quick! Well long story short we both lost weight last year, if you want to read Kassia's full weight loss story click here, but we got stuck in a rut, we had both plateaued and wanted to break the barrier so bad to reach our goal weights. So one month ago we decided that if we wanted to lose the weight for once and for all we needed outside help, this is where Max Muscle and Parker Lee came into play.

Can I Train With My Spouse and Still Love Them After?

People always ask us what it's like training with your spouse all the time and if it's enjoyable or not.... I mean don't you think we would get sick of each other being together all the time? There are a lot of people who use their training and exercise as "me time", they get to be by themselves and not worry about anything else. Having someone with them all the time might just cramp their style. But with us that is definitely not the case, I guess we love each other a little too much! But we're not going to lie and say it's sunshine and rainbows every day because it's not, but the good always seems to outweigh the bad!
Anyways we decided it would be fun to compile a list of pro's and con's of training together!

Train Now or Worry Later

So I wouldn't say that I am an early bird but I am not a complete night owl either... but I can really rock 11 a.m. like no ones business. If I had to choose I would quit my job and just train all day, then I would be able to get all my work done that I needed too and still have time to spare. But unfortunately life is just not that easy for 99.9% of us, I have to have a job in order to fund my crazy triathlon addiction and Brady has to go to school so that later I won't have to work and we can do more triathlon related craziness haha.

Just Keep Swimming... A Tale of a Non-swimmer

When we decided to start doing triathlons last summer we were pretty excited and pretty confident we could do well in all three disciplines even though we really only had any experience with running. We didn't have bikes but we loved to swim... by swim I mean we loved going outside in the summer and jumping in the pool and lounging around.  
For our first swim workout we walked into the local rec center feeling good about ourselves for no good reason at all! I jumped in the pool, started swimming and man was I quickly humbled! I could barely make it one length of the pool which was a 25 meter pool! I stopped once I reached the wall and rested for probably 60 seconds before I mustered up the strength to make my way back. I probably swam 200 meters and I was spent. I realized this swimming thing was going to be A LOT harder than I thought.

Who won? Me or the Plate? Tips for Eating Healthy at Restaurants

So as everyone can see nutrition is at the front of my mind recently, for good reason too because I am focused on dropping some lbs. The last post was about not eating out all the time which Kassia and I really struggle with. We made a goal to only eat out twice a month in March which wil
l be a big deal for us because we love love love to eat out. One of our problems when we do go out is that we have this mindset of "Eat until you hate yourself" I figure I shouldn't go home from a restaurant until I am so full I can barely move. So literally everytime we go out, we have to sit on the couch for like 2 days until we can move again. We obviously need to change the way we eat at restaurants!
Anyways I came up with some simple ideas to eat healthier when eating out.
