Alphabet Challenge Week 3 + Random Eats
I hope everyone’s week is going as well as mine! This is a time of transition for me and I am loving every second of this adventure! I am on week 3 of my challenge and I’m still going strong! This week my words are:
“One isn’t necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can’t be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.”
This is a week of “I can” statements. I can’t even begin telling you how much keeping those statements at the front of my mind has helped me believe in myself and my ability to reach out to everyone more than usual!
I like to think that I am consistent, but the truth of the matter is I am definitely not as consistent at responding back to emails, text messages, and lots more. Looking at a computer screen for longer than 20 min at a time is really difficult, and lets face it….I’m sick of typing on my phone lol. I am not 100% consistent this week yet with my emails and texts, but its definitely gotten about 70% better, and I still have 3 days left!
Courage is one of those words that you hear and you either get excited, goosebumps, or you want to turn the other way and run. With all the transitions going on there are definitely times when its hard to be courageous, but when I sit back and think about it, I’m not living my life if I’m not taking chances. My family has always taught me to go for something if I believe in it, and everything I am doing right now in my life I believe in it 110%!
An example of me having courage, and saying “I can” is when I did a ring flip today at Woodward CrossFit!
or taking a chance, and dominating a 1 handed handstand:
Moving on…..I get a lot of questions about what I like to eat throughout the day and honestly, I’m not super creative during the week with my eats. I try to keep it basic and I am only eating to fuel my body and help me get through my days as efficiently as possible. Obviously, I don’t want my food to taste bad, so I’ll add stuff like spices, herbs, siracha sauce (a definitely fav), mustard (another fav), and a sprinkle of sea salt and freshly ground pepper is a basic combo but sooooooo good!
Here are a few examples of meals:
2 eggs, 1.5 cup frozen organic veggies (california blend is my fav….broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots), with a spicy organic salsa on top and 1/2 a small avocado!
1 cup baked chicken with cumin and chili powder, and roasted brussel sprouts!
and I LOVE LOVE LOVE coconut water! Best recovery drink there is!
All of these meals are super easy to make, don’t make a mess and are super duper healthy for you!!!
