Healthy Breakfast Tacos

Sometimes it is hard coming up with new breakfast healthy breakfast ideas in the morning because if you are anything like me you are too tired to be creative and just scramble up some eggs! This is super easy to use with some left over shredded meat that you have from last nights dinner! You can even chop everything up before hand and just throw it together. OR you can just eat it for dinner!!

I am parterning with Chino Valley Ranchers and their Organic Eggs to bring you this recipe. I’m going to tell you a little secret…Now I am obsessed with their egg whites in a carton! It is soooo much easier and perfect for making Paleo Mayo because you don’t have to worry about eating raw egg since it’s been pasturized.

Watch the video below to see how EASY it is to throw this breakfast together!

I’ve listed some of my favorite crockpot/instant pot shredded meat recipes below to use in your recipe.

  1. Sweet Beef Tacos
  2. Crio Bru Pork Salad
  3. Mexican Beef Rice Bowl

Postpartum Weight loss

Let’s talk about weight loss!

It’s hard, it takes consistency, dedication and  WORK but I think it’s kind of fun. I never really understood it when people would say “it’s a lifestyle change” until I actually built these habits into my life and it is a lifestyle. A lifestyle that health and fitness is one of your priorities, you go to the gym multiple times a week, you are conscious and plan your meals, you make good choices when you go out to eat and so on. The more you build these habits into your life the more they fit into your life with less effort.

I want to start with a few notes before we dive into my postpartum weight loss.

  1. Genetics play a large roll in your body shape, weight loss and etc.
  2. If your hormones are off you could be doing all the right things and not lose a pound so go get your blood work done.
  3. Stress hinders weight loss.
  4. If you are nursing your milk supply can dwindle and or hold on to extra fat.
  5. Muscle weighs more than fat! Don’t get fixated on a number I usually go by how my clothes fit me to measure progress when I’m getting down to the last few lbs.
  6. Don’t forget that you are beautiful no matter your size. Focus on building healthy habits and weight loss is just an added benefit.

Okay let’s get into it! If you’ve been following me on Instagram the last year you may know that I have AWFUL AWFUL morning sickness my entire pregnancy. My first trimester I lost 15 lbs and when I finally stop throwing up around 25 weeks I’m super nauseous till I give birth so I eat and eat to try and make it feel better which in turn makes me gain weight. I’m 5’7, I was 130 lbs pre-pregnancy and then 115 lbs first trimester, 165 lbs the day I gave birth and 155 lbs when I got home from the hospital. That’s 50 lbs gained and so far I’ve lost 15 lbs and have 5-10 lbs to go.

How I lost 15 pounds in 2 months.

 

What have I been doing to lose this weight in 2 months? It’s all about that healthy lifestyle guys and being CONSISTENT! If you fall off the wagon a couple of days don’t beat yourself up and keep putting off change, make those healthy changes NOW not “oh I will start over tomorrow.” It all adds up I promise.

I have been doing HIGH FITNESS 2x a week and a sculpt and burn class which is a weight lifting class at my gym 2x a week. Both classes are an hour long so I’m getting my cardio in with High Fitness and building muscle with weights.

I cut MOST sugar and unhealthy carbs out and the biggest help for this has been using a supplement called ADVANTRASLIM from WM Nutrition. It really helps cut down the cravings. You can use code Wmn20 for 20%!

How I lost 15 lbs in 2 months

 

I have been loosely counting my calories using “my fitness pal” app which has been eye opening because a lot a foods you assume are super healthy actually might have a lot of calories or sugar in it! I suggest doing this for a week just to get a glimpse into what a certain amount of calories looks like. I try to stay around 300 calories per meal so I have 300-500 calories in snacks depending if I worked out that day. I also am pretty good at intuitively eating so I just listen to my body.

Let’s break it down…

7 am // wake up

7:30 or 8:30 // eat eggs on toast or eggs with a veggie or Greek yogurt with fruit and granola.

9:30 // snack

10:15 // WMN Preworkout

10:30 // fitness class

12 // protein and meal replacement shake

1 // advantraslim

2:30 // healthy snack

5:30 // paleo or whole30 meal 

9 // healthy snack

I lost the first 5 lbs naturally from just not eating so much because my nausea was gone and then I lost another 10 lbs in one month from sticking to this regimen. I still have another 10 lbs to go!

This is really what my Monday-Friday looks like and on the weekend I have some treats but don’t go crazy. I will try and walk you guys through what I am eating in an Instagram story and you can also buy my “Learn to eat clean in 3 weeks” eBook for a ton of healthy recipes!

What’s in my Hospital Delivery Bag

What should I pack in my hospital bag?

After having 3 babies I feel like I’ve finally got down what I actually need in my hospital bag. With my first I brought way too much stuff, with my second I was missing a couple things and this last baby I was perfectly prepared.

This post is brought to you by Lily JadeThis is my favorite diaper bag that I have owned (5 so far) and I wish I had gotten it first because I am POSITIVE it would have lasted through all these years instead of in the trash like my others. It looks like a purse, has a removable organizer and it can be a backpack! It seriously has everything you need!

Let’s talk about what I brought with me shall we?

Stuff to pack in my hospital bag

Among the obvious toiletries that you should pack the most important ones to me are…

  1. Dry Shampoo
  2. Sleeping Mask!! (I need it dark to sleep and there is always an annoying light on in your room).
  3. Phone Charger
  4. Hair ties

What to pack for baby

The baby things are the most fun to pack 😉 Make sure you’ve got a coming home outfit or two, some cute bows (my favorite is MODERN PIGGY) or beanies for pictures, a great swaddle and a nursing cover (both from COPPER PEARL) for when you have visitors.

Clothes to bring to the hospital

Comfortable and BLACK is the name of the game so you don’t get anything stained. I love wearing a comfy nursing bra and a soft robe during my hospital stay and then when I go home just some baggy sweats and a baggy shirt!
