Motivation Monday (on Tuesday)...

Yea, I'm a slacker. No, really I just don't have access to my blog like I used to. :(

So along with the blogging, I have been a huge slacker on my lifestyle as well. Then I hurt my back during a fitness class and was out of commish for a little over a week.

Ok done with the excuses.

It's Tuesday, but I'm posting a Motivation Monday. Whatevs, it's my blog and I can do what I want to right? It's still pretty early in the week for me, so it counts. I have been out of my routine for way too long and it's time to get back to it.

Yesterday I went to my first Sculpt class in almost 2 weeks. Boy am I sore, love it. I am attending a hot yoga class tonight and will be doing another sculpt class tomorrow morning. CorePower is doing this, I guess motivational, activity of 20 classes in 30 days. The deadline is December 10 and I am wayyyy behind. I'm thinking of doubling up some days, doing sculpt and then regular yoga.


I am also in the market for a new mat. Anyone have suggestions on a good brand or type?

My running game has gone down quite a bit, but I plan on getting back into this week. Hopefully tomorrow night and Thursday night (Mike's bday is Friday!) will get me feeling the love again. I'm ready.


It's getting so close to the holidays but that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice your lifestyle! I'm constantly looking for healthy recipes of the same yummy festive treats and meals. Subscribing to Tone It Up is an awesome way to find those kinds of recipes!


makes 6 servings


1 cup Quinoa, uncooked

2 cups unsweetened almond milk

1 cup organic Pumpkin Purée

1 Banana, mashed

2 Tbs of Stevia (3 packets) or 3 Tbs of coconut sugar

1/4 cup 100% pure Maple Syrup

1 Tbs of Coconut Oi

1 Tbs Cinnamon

1 tsp Pumpkin Spice

1 tsp Vanilla extract

1 1/2 tsp sea salt



Set crock pot or slow cooker on low. Mash the banana in a separate bowl and add in the coconut oil until smooth. Add all ingredients to the warm crock pot and mix together until well incorporated. Allow to cook for at least 4 hours, but can be set overnight. Serve with your choice of berries, nuts, raisins, Greek yogurt and a drizzle of maple syrup. Keeps for up to 3 days in a sealed container in the fridge. Enjoy!

Of course these are Karena and Katrina's ingredients, you can use any kind of variation you'd like! Unfortunately, I do not have a slow cooker so I am unable to try out this recipe (I'm dying inside), but let me know if you try it and how it comes out!

How are you staying healthy this holiday season?

Don't push your back with too much too soon and end up making something worse (a friend of mine did that and needed surgery!)
I really want to try hot yoga but I am too chicken to try!!
Love your motivation monday! It gave me a little motivational kick.
Love Gi
