Chocolate Waffles and Strawberries


Happy Valentines Day!!

I hope all of you had a wonderful day! Even if you don’t have a boyfriend, or husband.  There are so many people, furry too that are in your life that you can share love and make someone special today! I wish you all the most love that you can have.   So with that usually this day brings the usual treats  Chocolates, Roses etc.

With my weightless journey these kind of days I used to regret, not about the love part but about the chocolates and treats and dinner out! So what did I do for this Fabulous day, and my husband is out of town, I made my famous chocolate waffles and strawberries of course!

So if your trying to eat healthy and wanting to stick with it, this is a very good option to still eat healthy but have chocolate too , and not feel like your losing out!  So here is the recipe, enjoy it and have it any day you’d like!


  1. 1 scoop of Chocolate Shakeology
  2. 1/3 cup of Oat Flour ( I use Oatmeal and put it in my Ninja until it’s fine like flour)
  3. 1/2 cup of Egg Whites
  4. 1 tsp Baking Powder
  5. 1 tbsp of cocoa ( optional)
  6. optional you can use almond milk to make it creamy enough to pour like pancake mix or water.
  7. 1 cup of chopped strawberries( or any fruit you’d like)

Directions :

Mix all together until you get a smooth creamy texture, one that you can pour either in a pan or waffle maker.  Spray pan or waffle maker , then pour batter. It will puff up and then top with fruit and enjoy!


Monday was a big day for me, and I’m making this post a couple of days late. Mostly because I’m human and I have had a lot of rearranging to do. But I need your help, and by help I mean I need to have you keep me accountable for my 80 DAY OBSESSION program. This program will be my Transformation, I have lost a lot of weight as you can tell by previous pics. But this is where I get stuck.  Do any of you feel the same? You going really good, your excited and you start to see results so that keeps your fire burning.  But then after all that hard work and your clothes are fitting really nice, in fact your able to go down some sizes and feel great. That should be all you need to keep you going right? WRONG!! In fact it’s worse, because you’ve lost so much weight, everyone notices and compliments you on all your hard work, so you start to relax. You feel I got this in the bag!  Then you go out for dinner and instead of eating the most healthiest you treat yourself( Not that that’s a bad thing) but when you start saying to yourself. ” It’s ok, I’ll work extra hard on my workout tomorrow”

Here’s where the tough love comes in, ” You can’t outrun, out work, a bad diet” No matter how hard you try lol. That’s what I learned the last 3 months , I took my eye off the ball sort of speak! So here comes the reality, I kept my workouts, I just didn’t have my nutrition on point. When my pants started fitting tighter, and then my winter coat was snug. That was the eye opener for me.  Remember I was still working out! But then I was lost, I wasn’t sure what I was going to have to do to get that spark, fuel, back so I can start to feel good again, and have energy. Not just stuffing my face for no reason( aka a whole bag of licorise)

That’s when this beautiful program came into my life! I know your thinking it’s like all the other ones I’ve done right? WRONG again lol. This program is a different workout for 80 days, as well the thing I need the most help with is “TIMED NUTRITION”  so your probably wondering what that is? Well according to your weight and height they let you know what your calorie intake should be, which then turns into how many containers you will use in one day!.  Different times of the day is for different containers. A lot of people have been really nervous and anxious about this part. Mostly because it’s out of our comfort zone! But as I’m typing this blog post I can honestly tell you “WOOHOO !” I’m on the third day (officially) but I started this nutrition 2 days before that.

First off I want to squash all the ideas of the fact that you have to starve yourself to be on a plan. It’s actually the total opposite. I’m eating every 2-3 hours. and they’re not all huge meals but there are 3 main ones, then mini meals throughout. I have never felt better, no cravings, no mindless searching for crap food. No feeling of embarrassment or shame. Only energy, feeling good and most importantly found my spark, so my fire is well lit.

That’s where you come in!.  I will be posting the good , the bad , the ugly everyday I will be showing you pics of my before during and after. I will not lie, I will not Cheat! But If I know you are there to hold me accountable, there’s no way I will give up! Then You’ll be able to see me on stage in July for the big Transformation! But mostly because, I did the first year all alone, and it sucked. It was so much harder than it needed to be, then I found my coach and what a difference! Having that accountability really helps you say ‘NO” to those chips, pop, chocolate etc. That’s why I’m expanding my accountability, to YOU! If I tell you all and show you all, then I can’t cheat or else you’ll see it.  Then I’ll be a hypocrite. I do NOT want to be that! Who would? So here we go! These are my before pics.  Plus my first workout of Day 01! Don’t worry I’ll also be posting my food too!

A Little Obsessed

One of the best things to help me finish off the year strong is this program right here. I did a mistake and I started a program and got lazy. How can you do that? Well its very simple. I picked a program which you probably saw called “BODY BEAST” and I absolutely loved it. There was only one problem, I got lazy with my nutrition. I felt like I knew what I was doing and it wasn’t following the meal plan, in fact it was the opposite I wasn’t eating enough and then after supper I would be hungry and the cravings would kick in and voila, junk food city would open the door and let itself in. Sneaky buggers I say! I also tried to fool myself and believe that the scale was showing my actual weight gain. But I thought to myself, oh that’s because I’m lifting heavier weights and muscle weighs more than fat.  Yes it does, but that only works when your eating a proper meal plan and not junk food. lol. So the next step was that my clothes weren’t fitting right either. and that my friends is a dead give away.

I started feeling like a failure, because it was my own doing. My own mind making excuses and playing tricks by saying “It’s Ok, one treat won’t affect it” well one treat lead to many more. I knew I had to snap out of it, so thankfully this came around and it’s bigger brother” 80 Day Obsession”  is soon to follow.  It certainly couldn’t come at a better time. I was starting to go down a path I really didn’t like, but it’s one of those things that is very difficult to break out of once you start.

I have discovered one thing about myself. I definitely need routine and I need someone to tell me what it is I need to be doing as far as my meal plan and my fitness. Otherwise I end up ” squirrelling” it, which doesn’t not end up well.  This program has a meal plan and a very good one indeed, as well as a callender to show me what workouts for what day. The best part is that it’s a training or preparation for the Bigger brother in January. I know what I need to do, and this my friends will definitely be the Golden egg.  How fantastic is that. Not all is lost, yes I’ve fallen off the horse, but I have support and help to get back on that horse and win the race!! 

I will be doing my meal prepping, I won’t be going crazy while I’m at my daughters for Christmas, and best of all I will get back to my weight I need to be when I felt amazing and energized. Those containers saved me and I’m using them to their best potential. I’ve come this far I’m not giving up now! Besides isn’t it so much better to start the journey before everyone else decides on NEW YEARS EVE, they want to start and then you’ve already beaten it to the punch. Plus you’ll be that much more prepared come January when the big boy is in town, not sluggish and feeling out of breath or bloated. You’ll already be noticing a difference. So if you can take anything from my sharing this story is this; Everyone has times or days that don’t go according to plan, the biggest advice I can give is this: DON’T GIVE UP!!  if you fall down get back up, dust yourself off and go for it. If you haven’t started yet, “What are you waiting for?” Your time is now!  I waited my whole adult life and I’m so glad I decided enough is enough. New Chapter, New Journey, New Path. Which can be you!

Chocolate Pancakes For Breakfast


One of my all time favourites when I need a little more than my shake, I always make these awesome pancakes! I’m a Star wars fan so the fact that I can make these pancakes in the BB8 form is even better!

I have learned that a lot of the flours that are healthier than the general all purpose flour can be quite pricey and hard to find, especially being near a small town and in the country. So I have learned how to make my own Oat flour which funny enough is quite easy. I buy one minute oats and put it in my Ninja blender(single serve) and whip it up into flour! Presto all done!!  So much cheaper, and super easy the same with almond flour only difference is that you have to soak the almonds first to soften a bit then whip them up , I haven’t tried that yet but it is definitely on my list for sure, I see so many awesome recipes with almond flour!

So back to these bad boys lol. I always use my chocolate shakeology which is a great source of nutrients and helps curb my cravings, in fact I usually can’t finish both pancakes. I also use my purple container for my fruit which I usually add my strawberries, blueberries or raspberries whichever I have in the fridge. With my meal plan this is a great fruit addition, I still have and extra 2 containers to use up after this meal. I love how easy it is to keep track with the containers. So if your curious or want to know more please feel free to message me! I love to share what I know and help friends achieve goals that they’re striving for!.

So enjoy these Pancakes and trust me it’ll keep you full for a very long time!


  • 1/3 cup of Oat Flour
  • 1/2 cup of Egg Whites
  • 1 scoop of Shakeology( chocolate, vanilla or strawberry)
  • 1 tsp of Baking Powder
  • 1/4 cup of almond milk or water( just until its easy to pour)




Mix all the ingredients above into bowl, and stir it to get all the lumps and  is easy to pour. Spray pan with cooking spray( coconut/ olive oil), then pour the pancake mix into pan( pancake maker.) This amount makes 2 pancakes.  When you see the bubbles on top of pancake form then flip over. They will rise and smell so good.  Once they’re done feel free to add fruit( banana, strawberry, blueberry etc.)  Enjoy!!

Reno’s Part 2

Last weekend, Hubby and I started ripping up the carpet and laminate on the whole main floor. Well, it was a killer for him, but for myself, I felt pretty good. I even went to work after and worked a whole Nightshift! I was feeling pretty proud of myself. lol. So we decided to leave the last room until this weekend. Thank goodness we did, It was such a crazy weekend and it’s only getting crazier. With Christmas around the corner and Mom & I flying back a week tomorrow I have so much to do and it’s leaving Hubby with a lot of it. Today was finishing the Tearing up of the Mom’s room and then thankfully we have both agreed we’re not as young as we used to be so we’re hiring someone to put in the New flooring, but honestly, I think we are doing the hardest part. As well as the Dirtiest too lol.

But for some reason I didn’t have the spunk like I did last week, thankfully mom’s was pretty much the easiest room. Best for last they always say! Now all that’s left if to tidy up and move stuff when we need too on Sunday. Then Mom & I are off to Regina!  I’m actually really excited to see the girls. Spend Christmas Eve with them the best I can. But anyway that’s another Blog lol. When I see all the dirt and stuff on the floor I don’t know about you but it really makes me feel like I don’t know how to clean my house. 

I’m so glad we decided to do this and what an amazing gift my husband is giving me by staying behind to make sure the flooring goes in and looks after our furbabies while I’m gone.  As much as he can be a pain in the butt, he’s still my husband and I love him very much. But I have to ask, Don’t I look like a badass doing RENO’s?!  just kidding lol. Happy Sunday
