That's a bummer but you can turn it into a possitive. You've got to look at your goals and keep working towards them, if you can't come up with anything physical to do although there is always something you CAN do, even sit ups, push ups, good ol fashioned calistetics,(there's a word you don't hear much anymore lol) . Or you could spend the alotted time to prepare the meals you couldn't find time for before. There are no excuses not to achieve your goals you've just got to decide to do it even though it may not be the route you planned. There is more than one road to success.

Like the song goes,"life sucks then you die" lol

Somethings you can't control but don't let it screw up the things you can control, that there is no excuse for. Stay strong, stay focused and stay on track.

The trails and hardwork are definitely worth the reward.

These bars come together quickly, especially if you have leftover quinoa in the fridge like I usually do. I used my Healthy Breakfast Bars as a base, but wanted to kick them up a notch!

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients (6 bars)

1/2 c garbanzo bean flour
1 c quinoa, cooked
1 c oats
1/2 c nuts, chopped
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1/3 c peanut butter
1/4 c brown rice syrup
1 egg white
1/3 c applesauce
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 c craisins
Instructions

1. Combine applesauce, vanilla, egg white, peanut butter and brown rice syrup in a small bowl and mix well.
2. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until just mixed.
3. Spoon into a greased 8×8 pan and bake at 375 for 20 min or until golden brown.
4. Let cool and cut into 6 bars.
5. Store in the refrigerator.

I cut these into six bars and put each one in a snack size ziploc bag before putting them in the fridge. That way they were ready to go and hubby could just grab a bag on the way out the door to work.

These quinoa breakfast bars are chewy and delicious- perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack. They’re packed with protein and fiber and they’re gluten-free as long as you use GF oats. Plus, they could be made vegan if you used a flax egg! I used pecans in mine but almonds would be good as well.

Over the weekend, I doubled the recipe, used honey instead of brown rice syrup and cooked them in a 9×13 pan. It worked just as well!
I've had her Healthy Breakfast Bars and they are yum! Can't wait to try these.

Now I'm gonna vent a bit. I was sitting here after my workout eating when something on the tv caught my attention (whish it was before my workout, got my blood flowin' for sure). There were these idiot's, for lack of a more appropriate word, on a cooking show making meals all under 500 cals, cool, so it caught my attention, they're putting together the ingredients that consisted mostly of sugar and fat, you know, the stuff that "tastes good" to some of you, and go on to say that they hate it when someone says"cook healthy" because that means eating bland then shows his creation of shit and says along the lines of "it doesn't matter what the ingredients are IT'S ALL ABOUT THE AMOUNT OF CALORIES". I wanted to jump through my tv and slap him around and then stick these in front of him and tell him" THREE OF THESE ARE UNDER 500 CALS TOO,NOW TELL ME IT DOESN"T MATTER. what a jerk EVERYONE LISTEN TO ME, IT DOES MATTER!!!!!!!

Now I'll post some recipies.

Noticed in the above list of ingredients it has Chia Seeds, those and Salba Seeds are really good for you and pack a punch of nutrients.

Congrats Becky on the weight loss.

People dont get that eating low calorie vs. healthy is completely different. I actually want to get something out of my food. And I eat healthy and love everything I cook.
Stupid show people.

I thought I'd pop in and offer some "insight" on exercising. I was helping a new person to the gym the other day, and it occurs to me that many people don't really focus on working the muscle in regards to what it's function is. So I'd like to give a few examples.

Almost every muscle in the body falls into a "pushing" or "pulling" muscle. While thinking about that, consider this...

Triceps: A two very common tricep exercises are tricep extensions (in a downward motion) and skull crushers. It's important to know why you're doing them. You don't do them to "lift" or "push" the weight. The tricep function in the body is to extend your arm. While doing these exercises, focus on doing that task. Extend your arm. Don't "push" anything.

Biceps: Most common is the bicep curl. Again, don't focus on "lifting" the weight. Focus on contracting your arm. When you do that, with no weight, your bicep naturally flexes. We don't pay attention because there is no weight load on it. So contract that arm, flex the bicep. Don't "lift" the weight.

Chest: Bench press! The chest is a pushing muscle, and it's purpose is to drive your arms forward of your body. Focus on squeezing the chest and doing just that. Importantly, this is one of three major "full body" exercises. It involves shoulders, triceps, traps, forearms, and core. Push the weight as intended, but remember that everything else needs to work too. You have to focus on extending your arms, tightening your core, and flexing the traps as well.

Quads: Squat/leg press. The purpose of the quad is to, like the tricep, extend the leg. Don't focus on lifting the weight, focus on standing up/straightening your leg. Squats, like bench press, is a full body workout, so it requires some other flexing

Hamstrings: Ugh. Leg curls. Kind of. But the really good one... Romanian (stiff leg) deadlift. What's the point of the hamstrings? To contract your legs just like a bicep does for your arms right? Not really. Although a small portion of your hamstring provides that function, its biggest purpose is to push your hips forward. Ever seen an athlete pull a hamstring while curling a leg? Nope. They pull them while running and jumping, two things that your hips need to be driven forward to do. Learn how to Roman deadlift, and you'll see what I'm talking about

Back: rows. The back is a pulling muscle too, but it's goal is to bring your arms towards the back of your body. As you do your rows, once the bicep work is done, remember that your back is bringing the arms back after that. It doesn't matter if it's rows or pull ups, wide grip or narrow grip. It does the same function. Although, remember that exercise and grip will put more/less focus on which group of back muscles you work.

Shoulders: DB raises of many kinds. The shoulders are used to bring your arms up from your sides. They are not complicated, but it's important to remember when doing some of those lateral raises or reverse flys. Mil press is another exercise that uses them too, but works with the traps while doing it.

Abs: These are the interesting ones. They are the muscle group that is not responsible for pushing OR pulling. Their function is to protect your organs, but more importantly, your spine. Abs benefit from both contracting AND extention. And they benefit from it because you have to flex them for both. They flex to contract, and they have to flex to extend in order to support your lower back and spine. Take advantage of both.

So why is this so important? There is something refered to as a mind-muscle connection. This connection is the sole reason why you fall into "muscle memory" problems. When training, you should be focusing on what you're exercising, not the weight that you're trying to lift/push/pull. This helps you make a more solid connection, and work that muscle, instead of letting your body naturally throw any muscle into the mix to try to help out. And why is THAT important?

Form.
Results.

Very true. Most people are more concerned with the amount of weight you use, which is important, but when lifting heavy weight you have to use more muscles sometimes loosing the effectiveness of a particular lift. That is why you work with a weight load that is challenging but allows you to perform the full range of the lift, stay focussed on the muscle/muscles you are working on and concentrate on squeezing/stretching them especially at the beginning/end of the lift. If you can't do this there's a good chance the weight load is to high. It'more about form and execution than weight.

Most of the fat is in the egg yolks, only use 1 or 2 ,the rest whites and you will be good.

I'm not done yet, more coming so stay tuned lol.
