A Few Things...

So, just wanted to share some of the amazing things I've been cooking lately! I'm not one of those that can eat the same thing every night.  Eating clean doesn't have to be boring nor tasteless.  I will say, "taking a week off from diet and training really kicked my butt!" My body has been fighting against me all week.  I'm hoping next week after the soreness and cravings are gone i'll be better.

I do want to say, don't let your excuses get in the way of your goals!! I hear it all the time that people want to reach their goals but they are too busy, don't want to eat healthy, cant make it to the gym, ect... It's a mindset guys!! If you think positive and push hard anything is possible.  Do you think everyone that has been successful at reaching their goals did it the easy way? No! So stay on track and keep it interesting for yourself.  You've got to obsess over your goals.
