An ambitious, and delicious, dinner project: Eggless, Gluten-Free Chia Quinoa Turkey Burger Patties
This all began because I wanted to try the Chia seed egg substitute, and evolved into a fun, long awaited journey to my first homemade burger. I’ve always looked at healthy homemade burgers online but also always found them to be very daunting (a burger? homemade?) so I’ve decided to deconstruct it for others who might want to break their own homemade burger virginity. This recipe for the perfect healthy burgers is (as you can obviously tell) simple, and absolutely delicious. For the recipe, click the Read More.
HOW TO GET RID OF THOSE ANNOYING SIDE ROLLS
The before photo is obviously the terrible lingerie photo in the middle. The ones on the left & right are recent from this month.
1. Drink a ton of water
-When I was determined to start losing fat, I was drinking up to 3 liters of water a day. Yes, I had to pee a lot D: Do not drink anything with calories!!!!! >_< Tea & detox water is fine. I work at a weight loss office and there are so many girls that think juice & diet sodas are healthy. I try to avoid those at all costs. I do allow myself to drink Zevia if I am having a soda craving.
2. Start adding weights to your workout routine & also do more oblique exercises!
-I used to do 45 minutes of cardio. It didn’t shape my body at all & caused severe back pain. I’ve changed my cardio routine to only 10 minutes & have added 30 minutes of weight training.
3. Waist Band
-Okay these babies get a lot of negative reviews, but I always work out with a waist band! I do feel like its helped me slim down. I got my waist band for $10 at Marshalls & I’ve been using it for years!! I really should change it though O_0
4. Even if it’s not your scheduled gym day, STAY ACTIVE!
-Do at least one new youtube workout video or take a walk. keep weights randomly around your room and just start lifting them at random times.
4. Eliminate grains out of your diet & eat clean
-Our bodies do not work well when eating a ton of grains (pasta, pizza, rice, etc) I’m a flexible primal eater. I eat as much protein &leafy greens as much as possible. I do allow myself some grains for breakfast. Cut out grains and you will see results within 2 weeks!

(I’ll post a better one later but I promised someone a recent progress picture so here ya have it)
The last few weeks I’ve been feeling really down on myself because I haven’t had the time to exercise and my eating has been on and off. In need of a reminder on how far I’ve come.
It’s a long and slow process. You can have bad days, weeks or even months but consistency is key!
How can you feel discouraged?? Just look at that bod!!! :-O
Needed a reminder today to how far I’ve come already… Was actually shocked to see these side by side. I posted a progress pic like this before, but those pictures were not from the same angle. This is a much better comparison and it makes me happy. :) The left is from March 24, the right from today.
