Just finished with dinner (low-carb Moco Loco) and prepped up tomorrow's lunch... Yum....my favorite high-carb lunch: chicken salad with chopped apples, celery, onions, and Greek yogurt with spinach all on top of Ezekiel toast! 😍 #delish

SERIOUSLY...raise your hand βœ‹, or let us know by dropping a comment below⬇️if you're still voting for us to win the Fittest Couple Challenge! βœ‹πŸ† The link to VOTE is in my bio, & it takes 2 seconds to click the "vote for us" link under our photos! .
THIS is one of the things you're helping us to win: a trip ✈️ to meet & workout πŸ‹οΈ with the celebrity trainers, @realchrispowell & @realheidipowell --the power couple who has virtually guided us through the past two ✌️challenges, teaching us more & more about this fit-life that we lead βœ”οΈ! They provided delicious, on-point meal plans; very specific workout guides & videos; along with a private Facebook group for questions & answers, but to meet the Powells IN PERSON would be a dream come true πŸ’« We are dying to be put to the test during one of their real-life workouts. Have you seen these two on IG!?! Omg!!! πŸ’ͺ You HAVE TO check them out! .
Of course, the WIN you all helped us achieve last year was AHHHMAZING, but THIS....THIS TOPS IT BY FAR! We really owe the Powells a proper, IN-PERSON thank you for changing our lives!
.
Today is it for voting: Are you in it to win it with us for a SECOND TIME?! πŸ™β€οΈπŸ’ͺ

Here are our side by side progress photos from the #afcc2! Before you read our transformation story, please remember, we need your votes to win!!! πŸ’ͺ Click the link in my bio, scroll down to the tiny words "vote for us" below our pics--it doesn't look clickable, but it is. Please click 5x and come back so we can thank you! πŸ™β€οΈπŸ˜˜.
.
So, when this challenge first started, we just finished up another successful season of #triathlons πŸ†! Between the two of us, we did 11 races--bringing home lots of hardwareπŸ₯‡πŸ†πŸ’ͺ. We rarely lifted over the summer, but we could confidently say we were in our best cardiovascular shape -- πŸŠπŸš΄πŸƒ. We also were, however, a lot less strict with our diets, as we focused more on fueling for hours of cardio training and less on muscular strength, physique, and body building. πŸ’ͺ πŸ₯–πŸžπŸ•.
.
@chrishasley and I were training at opposite times of the days. We focused on doing our own workouts, as we each needed to train harder & longer in different ways for our races. Needless to say, we weren't on the same page with our eating, and family life was getting pretty unorganized as we juggled our times to train with what to eat, and what to do for fun...#teacherlife (no jobs in the summer). It was consuming us.
.
BOTTOM LINE: We had no sort of PLAN, and I can't say the end of the season was the funnest (for me at least--Chris has no recollection of this πŸ™„). Thank GOD we had another Challenge to take on. I am a total planner--the typical Type A personality! @realheidipowell & @realchrispowell put together this challenge PART TWO ✌️and we HAAAD to do it again. And, although we had some friends who were like...really????...we needed this! And here we are! Stronger, happier, more focused than ever! πŸ’ͺ @oxygenmagazine has been my FAVORITE FITNESS MAGAZINE from day one it always puts out amazing content and challenges even the fittest readers! πŸ’ͺ
.
Hoping to get your votes, as there's only today and tomorrow left! πŸ™β€οΈπŸ˜˜Thank you in advance!!!! #fitcouple #transformationstory #fittips #getfit

Yes....I have a "before" photo! πŸ™„ And, believe it or not, I thought I was actually pretty "fit" back then. I worked out a lot, I was a fitness instructor & even a personal trainer, but, really, I ate like crud and was afraid to push myself in my workouts ... It wasn't until after Joe was born that I did my first challenge with @erinstern5 & @oxygenmagazine. That's when I learned how to properly #fuelmyworkouts and started lifting heavy! I actually haven't had a gym membership in almost 10 years now. But, with the addition of #cleaneating #highproteindiet & #carbcycling along with #mixingup workouts with #hiits #sscardio #reps #sets and #restdays with @realheidipowell as my virtual #trainer for the #afcc1 & #afcc2 ... I have achieved WAY MORE than a physique (but I'll take that too) .... I feel pretty-much put-together in all aspects of my life! ❀️ #transformed #inmorewaysthanone

Who loves pancakes, waffles, or French toast??? Ohhhh, I DO! πŸ™‹πŸ˜‹ This is one of my favorite recipes from @jamieeasonmiddleton 's #oc3 (another one of @oxygenmagazine 's challenges). It's SUPER CLEAN, healthy, hearty, and QUICK! πŸ‘ŒActually, you make it in a mug--in the microwave!!! YEAH! --French Toast in a mug! πŸ’« I'm all about quick and easy HIGH PROTEIN recipes! You really can't mess this one up! Ezekiel bread (cut or torn into pieces), egg whites, almond milk, a little smashed banana, vanilla, cinnamon and made in the microwave! πŸ‘And then...I drizzled @waldenfarmsinternational
pancake syrup on top! πŸ₯žπŸ³

So...do you TELL? Yes or No? πŸ™‹πŸŒ±πŸ˜¬
.
For me, it's usually a YES. If it's someone I know pretty well, and she has something in her teeth, YEP, I'm going to point it out! Hey--just sayin'...if it we're me, I'd want to know.
.
We were just goofing around here with our after school/pre-work snack! I probably would have noticed that giant piece of lettuce there on my tooth! πŸ˜‚ And...this is another one of the easy recipes from #afcc2. Iceburg lettuce leaves, shredded chicken, string cheese, avocado, and green salsa! Yummmmmmm. .

I can't even think about the day when my little guy will be "too cool to kiss his mom" (especially in front of anyone, the camera πŸ“Έ...and for a post about how much I love it to my social media site)!?! πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ Seriously though, at what age do boys stop with this cuteness!?!

.
Workout side note: I JUUUUUSSSST got done with a big shoulders workout & metcon for time. Holy moly. πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ Strength workout was 3 sets of 12 Arnold Presses followed by 2 separate SuperSets (each SS was repeated 3x) 10 Lateral Delt Raises / 10 Rear Delt Flyes & 10 Upright Rows/10 Alternating Front Raises. Metcon was 5 rounds for time: 50 Jacks, 10 Pirate Pushups, 15 Air Squats.
.
FYI: I used 25s for the Arnolds, 15s for the Laterals & Rears, 20s for the uprights, & 15s for the fronts!

Don't get me wrong, I have crazy, busy MOM days...but I never blame the kids for making my life too busy or too hectic to stay healthy! I just make it happen! Of course it helps having a supportive husband and flexible training buddies who understand "life with kids!" πŸ˜‰ I plan ahead when possible and always make the most of my time. I always remind myself that THEY are the reason I need to be strong and healthy--that works as my number one motivator! #mondaymindset #mondaymotivation #fitspo #momlife #momswholift #momswhorun #fitmom #fitfam #fitfriends #noexcuses #familylife #makeithappen #lifewithkids #anythingispossible #findtime #igfitmoms @igfitmoms #fitnessmotivationmomlife #theycallmemom #unlessyoureamom #cleaneatingmomma #workingmom #careermom #momswhoflex #strongasamother #nodaysoff #nodowntime #fitmomsrule

Comment belowπŸ‘‡if you're voting (or willing to) in our efforts to win back to back titles as America's Fittest Couple! πŸ†πŸ†!!! We need your help! πŸ’“ The link to vote for us is in my bio!
.
And keep reading if you want some insight on what we think about fitness!
.
So, what does it mean to be fit? .
We bet most people have mixed opinions. Maybe they think about exercise--you know, going to the gym, running, lifting, sweating. Maybe they think of hot bods, flat abs, bulky muscles, or magazine cover models... we're sure most people go down a LONG list of other things and activities before they get to endurance, nutrition, flexibility, water intake, and sleep!
.
Fitness to us a lifestyle--it truly is a way of life; it’s not just what you do for your workouts, or how you look after a challenge. Fitness includes everything from what, how, and when you eat; how you sleep; and how you move throughout the day. .
Fitness really is a 5-part package deal, and it is said that in order for someone to be considered fit, all five elements of fitness should be checked off:
.
--Cardiovascular Respiratory Fitness
--Muscular Strength
--Muscular Endurance
--Good Flexibility
--A Healthy Body Composition
.
When it comes down to it, you really YOU CAN'T "FAKE" FITNESS, but we have always wondered about people who try to--whether it's showing off how they fit into a size zero jeans and brag about never having to workout, or showing off how much they can bench press or dead lift, but they eat CRAP for food or drink alcohol every night "just because it takes the edge off"...there are those who can honestly run 10 miles, even marathons, but they have never lifted a weight in their life! .
We think it all comes down to a balance. The choices Chris and I make in our daily lives greatly affect our level of fitness! .
Thanks for reading! Please let us know that you're voting by commenting & even perhaps sharing the link for people to help us win!!! πŸ’ͺ❀️
