Trip to New Zealand!
Hey friends! I decided to make a separate travel blog to post about my travels. This year was New Zealand. I just got back yesterday so I'm working on each day with lots of pictures but I have to first two days posted about already.
I forgot to write a post that I started Shaun T's new program: Focus T25. I'm currently on week 3 of Alpha Phase (which is Phase 1) and I'm proud to say that I've followed the calendar to a tee. I have never followed a program calendar this long, aside from Bodyrock but that's because those are only 12 minutes.
I find with most program: Turbo Fire, Insanity, etc. that I just can't commit to fitting an hour or more into my day after work. I could do it before work but honestly I don't get as good of a workout in the morning because I'm so not a morning person. I'm tired and sluggish and really just half assing my workout at that point.
I work different shifts varying from starting at 8:00AM to 10:00AM. Tomorrow I happen to start at 10:00AM so that means that I can still sleep in AND do my workout before work :) Tonight was lower focus and tomorrow morning is cardio. I love doing my workout before work because then it's out of the way for the day …

Self magazine is very informative and I like the interviews with the celebs to see a different side of them. My mom has a subscription and hands them down to me. Click Here for some tricks to curb food cravings.
I also found this in Self magazine. It's a great read and very informative. They also have new workouts to try made by trainers and they usually include a meal plan
When is the best time of day to workout? Anytime!
If you're unsure of portion sizes, this chart is very helpful =)
Today's post is a recipe for this delicious fajita bowl. I had groceries delivered a few times in January and apparently you are no exempt from buying too much when you're ordering online. I got some frozen veggies to keep on hand since I kept wasting the fresh stuff but then I ordered more fresh stuff when I had the stuff in the freezer... I'm pretty smart :)
Anyway, I got caught up on the fresh stuff so onto the frozen stuff. However, you can obviously use fresh peppers and onions for this recipe, I just happened to have a frozen mix of red, green, and yellow peppers, and onions that was perfect for fajitas! I also had fresh mushrooms that needed to be used so I sliced those babies up and sauteed them in olive oil for a few minutes before adding the frozen mix.
I used my Epicure fajita seasoning mix but it can be replaced with a homemade mix or store bought, whatever works for you.
This recipe made enough for two smaller portions since I don't eat large meals, norma…
