There is a stronger, fitter, leaner, more confident version of yourself inside begging to come out. Set them free!! Since I’ve moved, my diet has been extremely on point. I am in control of what is in my kitchen and it feels amazing. I cook every single meal at home with the exception of a few meals here and there. The foods I eat are whole, natural foods that are nourishing for the body and keep me functioning on a daily basis. Foods like chicken, lean ground beef, tuna, salmon, olive oil, avocado, basmati rice, quinoa, broccoli, asparagus, eggs, cucumbers, potatoes and more. I feel amazing and I can see the visible change in my body even though I haven’t been able to workout in a few weeks (yes it’s possible to maintain without working out but I can’t wait to get back into it). Check out www.Facebook.com/inspiredTBF because I will be posting more recipes, grocery lists, showing you all what is in my fridge so you can all get some inspiration for yourselves! It’s also a great place to ask me any questions you may have! I WILL get back to you as soon as I can! πŸ’› these pictures are about 3 years apart but it took me 1.5 years to achieve. #TransformationTuesday #inspiredtobefit #itbf #beforeafter #weightloss

I recently learned a new recipe called Stand Up Chicken. It has become my go-to dinner lately and makes enough for lunch the next day (yay for meal prep). It’s so unbelievably easy to make and takes little to no effort at all. It tastes delicious and makes you look like a pro in the kitchen!πŸ΄πŸ—

Tools:
- Stand Up Rack (Google it, it’s a metal rack that holds a whole chicken vertically)
- Roast Pot 

Directions: 
- buy whole chicken
- place Stand Up Rack inside the Roast Pot and spray both with Pam
- place chicken on rack
- spice the chicken with garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, chicken spice and anything else you might like (use your hands to rub the spices evenly all over the chicken)
- after the chicken is spiced, spray with olive oil to give it a little crisp
- add a few cups of water to the roasting pot to avoid burning
- cook chicken for 1 hour at 400F

Sides: 
I made brown basmati rice with sautéed onions cooked with chicken stock and steamed asparagus + brussel sprouts. Everything eaten with hot sauce!!!

Enjoy!!!

Learn to love your curves. Learn to love your body. The biggest struggle with losing weight is the pressure you put on yourself, especially when you eat something “bad” or skip your workout. Half the battle is actually liking what you see when you look in the mirror, even if you haven’t reached your goals yet. Work your curves. Embrace your stretch marks and walk like you’re on a runway. Nothing is sexier than confidence, not even a flat stomach πŸ™ŒπŸ’›#transformationtuesday #itbf #inspiredtobefit #beforeafter #confidence

I ❀️ waffles! Who says that following this lifestyle means you can’t continue to eat the foods that you love. I have never eliminated any foods that I used to eat BUT I do adjust them slightly to fit my diet. They still taste delicious and satisfy those cravings. It’s all about taking the “bad” foods and replacing them with healthier alternatives. In this recipe, instead of using white flour to make waffles, I used oat flour. Instead of white sugar I use stevia and a banana. Instead of oil I use Greek yogurt…etc. The same goes with your favourite recipes!! πŸ’ͺπŸ˜‹ Comment here your favourite meals that I can try and show you how to make them healthy. I will try out the most popular suggestions. Feel free to comment on www.Facebook.com/inspiredTBF for a better chance to be chosen!! Happy Saturday! πŸ’• #healthy #waffle #inspiredtobefit #itbf

I am officially moved into my new apartment in Ottawa with my boyfriend! It’s the first time living without my parents. I am finally able to buy the foods I want without having cake and cookies constantly lying around. My pantry and fridge is now full with healthy foods without any distractions outside my diet. For those of you who live with people who compromise your diet, my advice to you is to have an area or cupboard in your kitchen that is only yours. Stock it with foods that will help you stay on track and avoid the communal food if possible. 🍏🍎 We installed this slot wall with baskets and are using it for fruits, onions, potatoes, squash, balsamic vinegar, rice vinegar, olive oil, quinoa, brown rice, my fav cook books and of course, some Pinot Grigio. 🍷🍴 When you surround yourself with positive people and positive energy it really helps with the process #inspiredtobefit #itbf #pinterest #homedecor #kitchen

I am officially back from vacation! I had an amazing week full of festivities. From Vegas, to my birthday, to a wedding…it’s safe to say that I indulged…a lot. When I am on vacation I want to enjoy myself so if I want all you can eat buffets I won’t stop myself! Although I didn’t go to the gym, I got a lot of exercise walking down the Vegas strip 2 hours a day in the blazing heat. The worst thing you can do is make yourself feel guilty on vacation. Just enjoy yourself and eat what you want. Of course if there are healthy options, take them but that’s not always the case. This is a great opportunity for me to tell you all what I do when I get back from vacation and how I detox to get back on track. First thing I do is get a good nights sleep. You probably need it. When I wake up I make a healthy smoothie- like the one in the picture along with eggs and a side of tomatoes and cucumbers. Then I’ll go for a long walk. I don’t want to shock my body and go straight to the gym and lift weights. It really helps clear your mind and assist with the detox process. I will make sure to drink lots and lots and lots of water throughout the next few days. I will then make sure that I eat only home cooked meals for the next little while ensuring that I am eating whole, unprocessed foods. Once I feel up for it, I will go to the gym and do a low impact full body workout just to get my muscles warmed up. I will continue to eat very clean as well. Before you know it, you will be back on track. The most important thing to keep in mind is if you did gain weight on your trip, it will come off. Your body will slowly adjust to the healthy foods you are used to and the extra fat will go away with time. Don’t be hard on yourself because it won’t last long (as long as you are back in the gym and eating healthier than you were on your trip there shouldn’t be a problem). If you have any questions feel free to ask. Happy detox! 🍏πŸ’ͺπŸ’› #inspiredtobefit #itbf #detox #vacation #healthy
