It wasn’t so long ago I posted on my old blog about a career change. I went from a 2nd grade teacher and reading specialist, to a stay-at-home mama, to a personal trainer and group ex instructor.
Apparently I’m trying to fit in every occupation known to mankind before this happens.
Well now I am not so much switching, but adding on. I just received my materials to study for the AASDN Nutrition Specialist Certification Program.
I’ve always been weirdly into food, just never had the credentials to back it up. I’m hoping to build a library of meal plans and workout videos over this next year to launch a complete online resource catered to moms, of course, with nutrition plans, recipes and quickie workouts.
My rules for launching this new venture whenever I get around to it:
Recipes need to have only a handful of ingredients
Recipes also need to have under 5 steps
Meals need to be kid-friendly and flexible
Workouts need to stay QUICK
Would love to hear what you would look for in an online exercise/nutrition program before I start masterminding
Like last Monday I wanted to share a few recipes I made last week.
These for dessert.. because we obviously need to start with that
I added Enjoy Life Chocolate chips to them (allergy-free and a lot less saturated fat than regular)
Combinations of this for Gentry to munch on for lunch
I’ve basically been pulling out frozen organic veggies, steaming them, food processing them, adding an egg and whole wheat bread crumbs, throwing them in muffin tins and baking. Combinations I’ve tried besides the cauliflower one above:
Again, my pictures are AWFUL so I’m using these wonderful cooks’ own and giving them 100% credit!
I’m still sore, yes STILL sore from the NYC Half last Sunday (don’t judge) but I managed to capture this beauty of a workout for you. It’s called 2 minute pyramid rounds. So do 1 rep of the first exercise, immediately followed by 1 of the second. Then do 2 reps of the first exercise followed by 2 reps of the second. Keep laddering up until you get to two minutes.
How could I make my online nutritional and exercise offerings better for moms out there?
What’s your favorite thing about blogs that share recipes?
How are all the pregnant (and non pregnant) mamas handling life out there?
