Family Food Fix Day 2

Day 2 was GREAT! The girls are excited about combining containers and we got together to make our shopping list and pick recipes to make. We are making a mess in the kitchen at all times but it’s totally fine!

YAY for them picking foods to eat and recipes to try!

We do tend to have a ton of containers on the counters at all times though!

Transformation Tuesday 80 Day Obsession

The rest of the workouts flew by. We did a lot of zoom calls on Saturday mornings to do our cardio flow workouts together. They are SO much better with friends.

After 80 Days, I learned to prioritize sleep and practice self-care. I fell in love with my foam roller and stretching and made it a part of my weekly schedule. Sometimes it’s not about the before and after pictures, it’s about learning how to improve yourself and be your best self.

The results were pretty awesome.

This is the first time I’ve ever seen some carving on the front of my core!

Test Group Day 1

So I got into an exclusive test group for a new timed nutrition and workout plan that lasts 80 Days. I’m excited because I need to keep up on workouts and this will motivate me to keep going!

Today I made spaghetti squash in the Instant Pot because it cooks so quickly and I can walk away from it. I hate having to turn on the oven for a small thing like this, so the IP is perfect.

  1. Cut squashes in half with a sharp knife
  2. Scoop out seeds
  3. Add 1c of water to the Instant Pot
  4. Put in the trivet
  5. Add the squash cut side up
  6. Cook on high pressure (HP) for 8 min with quick release of pressure when it’s done.

For my next meal I needed to eat a fruit, veggie and fat. I accidentally created the most amazing thing.

Ok, first, for those of you who don’t know me, I grew up in Cleveland area. My dad took us to Skyline Chili any time he had to feed us between our activities and Mom was away. Spaghetti with chili and cheese was a staple as well as the coneys. I love the flavors.

Today, I made a gluten free, chili free, 3 way with spaghetti squash, by accident!!

After the spaghetti squash was cooked, I dumped 1💚 in my bowl with 1💙 of shredded cheddar cheese and about 1/2t of taco seasoning. It blew me away with how much it tasted like Skyline spaghetti but without the heavy noodles or chili. Just the chili flavor with lots of melted cheese and a noodlelike texture. Win! I’ll be making this again. Easy and delicious. Spices make the difference.

Wonderful Wednesday

We dropped Grampy off at the Greyhound then came home to COOK!  It’s cauliflower cooking day since we found amazing cauliflower rice at Costco this week. 

Go KOP Costco!!!!

First we made some FixAte cookbook Grandma Calabrese tomato sauce. 

I always double the recipe and use good drinking wine and cheese

Then we made some Nom Nom Paleo meatballs. These are in her cookbook only so go get it! Dairy free, gluten free, egg free and kid approved. 


A byproduct is amazing mashed cauliflower. I love it with some ghee or nutritional yeast. 


After we ate the yummy meatballs, it was time to make some Autumn Calabrese gluten free cauliflower breadsticks. They were delicious. 


It was a very productive day full of yummy cauliflower food. 

Country Heat Day 1 recap

Before photos ✔️

Schedule added to website workout tracker ✔️

Bracelets for containers ✔️

All the prep was done and it was time to dance! More than a few of us want to add to the program (I need more weights, I want the deluxe workouts, I’m going to double up, etc.) I decided and committed to do this round start to finish as written. I am focused on burning off fat and leaning out and super excited this is high intensity and low impact.


Not a bad burn! I’ll take it. And it was fun. And I am sweaty! 

Woke up today to write my recap. Down 1.8lbs overnight from 1 day of containers. WIN!
