Guilt Free Guacamole

I’ve recently started liking guacamole, but I still don’t like avocados. Makes sense right? I always eat this with my Guilt Free Nachos; it’s so delicious and a great source of healthy fat. Ingredients: 2 Avocados ¼ Cup salsa 1 ½ TBS Lime Juice Salt to taste, we use a lot of salt ½ Cup onions…

Weekly Workouts 2/19-2/25

This weeks workout was a little different for me because I took last Sunday off. To stay on track with my program I had to fit in my last lift from the prior week, and all five workouts of my current week. That means that I squatted 4 TIMES this week #woof. Luckily for me…

Valentine’s in the Big Apple

My trip to NYC started a little rocky as I realized I forgot my license at home. Luckily my dad was driving me, and my sister was able to bring my ID (thanks dad and Kris!). Luckily I made it to my gate right as my plane was boarding. I’ve never missed a flight and didn’t want…

Lyssy’s Eats: Black Tap NYC

I saw Black Tap on Instagram and was mesmerized by the outrageous looking milkshakes. My sister Kris went there when she visited NYC and sent me some drool worthy snaps. I knew that Jon and I had to go the next time I was in NYC.   The weather was pretty terrible, it was rain/snowing…

Weekly Workouts 2/12-2/18

This weeks workouts felt really good. I didn’t do much accessory work so that I could give my body a chance to recover from these tough lifts. I still have one workout of the program left to do this week. On Sunday Jon and I decided to get caught up on This Is Us instead…

Full Body, Minimal Equipment Workout

Full body workouts are great if you’re crunched for time or are getting into lifting. When I first got into lifting I would pick one exercise for each muscle group, which is what this workout entails. Now I am on a training program but will do a full body if I’m traveling and can’t get…

Pinterest Banana Bread

I saw recipes on Pinterest for pancakes with only two ingredients: eggs and a banana. I ended up tweaking the recipe a little to make it a banana bread instead of pancake. The pancake was really hard to flip because the batter was so thin. Ingredients: 1 Banana 2 Eggs 1/4 Tsp Vanilla 1/2 Tsp…

Weekly Workouts 2/5-2/11

This weeks workouts felt really good, which means next week the weights will increase. I like my current workout program because it allows me to get comfortable with a weight before I increase it. Eventually I’ll be able to reach all of my goal maxes, but until then I have to hold the vision and trust the…

Guilt-Free Post Workout Smoothie

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m at the point of hanger after my workouts. At work I make my oats ASAP, but when I’m home I always make this smoothie. It’s so easy to make and contains plenty of protein and carbs. This smoothie is perfect post workout because: Whey protein is a…

Guilt Free Pizza

Pizza used to be a weekly occurrence for me until I realized how unhealthy it can be. However, this recipe is protein packed and guilt free. Jon and I have this whenever we are together and not eating Guilt Free Nachos. *Full disclosure: Jon created this recipe* I had never tried Naan bread before, but it makes…

Weekly Workouts 1/28-2/4

This week I was on week 2 of my program and it was tough. I took two rest days because I was so exhausted. With tax season upon me and my free time limited, I’m making it my goal to complete all five of my lifts a week. Workouts this week: Monday: Vinyasa Yoga class Tuesday:…

Guilt Free(ish) Buffalo Chicken Dip

Superbowl Sunday is coming up and I made a dad-approved (if he eats something with fat free cream cheese and likes it, then it’s a good sign) healthy version of the famous Buffalo Chicken Dip. There are only five ingredients and a total prep time of less than 10 minutes. Ingredients: 2 cups shredded chicken (we…
