Chicken Chili with Rotel

-Green Chilies Diced
-Chipotle Seasoning
-Green peppers
-Whole Wheat Tortillas

First Sprinkle a little bit of the chipotle seasoning to add a little flavor directly to the chicken. Then throw it in a container and add half the jar of green chilies - see picture in meal prepping - then add a few diced up green peppers.

Add 1/4 the jar of rotel - or less than - it doesn't take much for some extra flavor. Stir//shake it up and let it sit for rest of meal prepping time until ready to cook everything.

Save the rest of the rotel, green peppers, and green chilies in separate containers to be used at a later time.

Then after you cook, put away into containers individually. You will be taking the whole wheat tortillas with them when you are ready to eat. 
If you want to eat it by itself or with some spanish rice//brown rice used 1/4 - 1/2 a cup. 

Chicken Wraps

Chicken Wraps

*I use Kirkland brand chicken, you buy it at Costco and it is individually wrapped, and a bag usually costs $16.99

First rinse the chicken, and then separate the fat from the chicken breast
Add a little bit of sea salt to chicken - careful not too much it's powerful

Add a dash or two of cayenne pepper - I just do it to my taste preference

Add some olive oil/vegetable oil to the pan - not a lot just a little pour out the spout
Pour the chicken into the skillet

Add 1-2 garlic cloves (1/2-1 teaspoon) to chicken

Add 1 1/2 tablespoon green chili peppers 

Save the rest!! So you can make more!

While it's cooking, clean up and rinse things off
Use a plastic bag for excess chicken, then throw away immediately - saves your nose!!
I use whole wheat tortillas 

Add cheese if you please, not an over load - right around 1 1/2 Tbsp
Serve up and enjoy!

*You can use Plain Greek Yogurt instead of sour cream if you wish to add to it. 
I like mine just like this, and I eat two and usually full 
If you need a larger meal, add 1/4 cup rice :)

I really hope you enjoy this - it's simple - fast - easy - and full of flavor! I promise!! :) 

Honey Mustard Chicken

Thank you momma

You are such a great cook and so I decided to put this in with my meal prepping! 

Okay, I used a couple simple ingredients. 

-Dijon Honey Mustard
-Johnny's Seasoning Salt

Mix the ingredients in a small bowl. I eye ball everything on this because it is to taste. I first put in the mustard, then I will add honey but not too much because I don't like mine too sweet. I throw a dash of the Seasoning Salt, and then add a splash of beer. Why I use beer - it adds extra flavor, I'm not using much of it so there's hardly any calories, and it cooks well with chicken. 
Everything turns out to taste, if you like your's sweeter, then put more honey, The consistency needs to be thick but not a paste.

 I had to add a little extra mustard in mine, so like I said, everything is to taste :) 

Then you will add the chicken to let it marinate for 15-30 mins

While you are meal prepping, this can sit in the bowl with a lid on for the chicken to soak up the flavor. When you are done prepping everything and ready to start putting things on the stove; take the lid off and it will be ready! 


I put this chicken with asparagus, and rice.

Meal Prepping.

Okay so I didn't have some things so I had to change what I planned on doing, since I used it the night before for meal prepping with someone else :P woops!  I made a couple different types of chicken seasoning, and there will be separate posts for each type of chicken. 

So here's what I had and what I did with it ..

Meal Prepping

Like I mentioned before I use Kirkand // Costco individually wrapped chicken
& These are all the ingredients I used.

This is my first time meal prepping, I learned a lot of what I will be doing better next time, but I am here to share what I do and what is working for me. I have some BETTER ideas for next week and I can't wait to share! Next time it won't be just on the spot.
  1. When meal prepping, you want to be sure to have all the ingredients out and ready to use if you are planning on a couple different meals
  2. Have containers in order to put the planned out meals together and to store in the fridge. 

First,  do your basic pre-meal ritual, wash your hands, your meat, lay it all out on a cutting board.. get your stuff prepared. 

Cut off all the FAT!

Chop it all up or you can keep full breasts too

Honey Mustard Chicken
BBQ Chicken
Chili Chicken
Or you can just create a blend of seasoned chicken with your choice of flavor and add the rest to your meal :)

When you've picked out what season you put on your chicken or what recipe you chose to follow, be sure to get other things going while it is cooking. 


Well my husband is against the skin on carrots for whatever reason, so I of course peal them and make them into fresh carrot sticks. You can keep the skin on and just chop them like I do below.
I cut off the ends and then cut the carrots in half, just enough to fit in a couple small square containers.  
With the picture on the right, I just cut up the rest of the carrots that didn't fit the the containers and put it with the rest of the peppers. I eat green peppers raw and sometimes with a little Italian dressing. Or Goddess dressing. 

Cut all the ends off and rinse the asparagus :) 
 I put a little bit of olive oil (you can use vegetable oil too) minced onions, along with a couple cloves of garlic. Then - place the asparagus in the pan to saute them. When they start getting soft that's when you know they are done. I forgot to take pictures of them close up - but I do have some in the containers at the end. 
You don't want them to be too soft, or too hard. -Depending on how you like it too I guess- But too soft, it will just get soggy and not something you will appreciate a couple days later.

I tried a new kind of rice, I found this at Costco and it's nice because it doesn't take long to cook but it had Quinoa in it and still a healthy choice. 

So when everything is set aside, and finished cooking; it's time to get it all together. 

 For my containers:
I use 1/4 cup of rice and smaller amounts of chicken. I am waiting to get a food scale. :) 
I just keep mine simple, smaller, but lean. 

For my hubby's containers:
I give him a 1/2 a cup - 3/4 cup rice and a bit more chicken. He needs it more than I do :) I will also add 3-5 more pieces of asparagus. 

This is the carrots, the green beans, the peppers, the chicken dinners, all ready and prepped to go for the week. <3 

I hope you all enjoyed this, it was my first time. No worries, I will be getting better and I have been learning so much for new tips and tricks on what to do next. Thanks for reading!!!

Okay so we struggle with motivation do we not?

I know a lot of people who do, and well myself at times too. I often see people give up after 4 weeks or after 2, 3 weeks even 5 days. We struggle with it because we are not empowering our mind - we are not keeping in mind what matters most. Our goals and our dreams - they are very similar, one just has a deadline does it not? The dreams can be accomplished if we meet our goals, and meet the expectations we set out for ourselves.

So I have a picture that I've been hesitant on posting - because it's out of my comfort zone. Yet when I look at it, I feel SO good about myself. I often find myself struggling with the ideology of what others think and what they WOULD think if I DID post it. Why do I find struggle with it, when it in turn motivates me to do better? To think better? To act better? Because as a woman, I have been told many times. I mean many times by society to stay covered up. (Yet bikini's are okay? :P ) From TV, peers, parents, teachers, grandparents, boyfriends, you name it - it is out there as skanky or too risque if we show more skin than we are supposed to.

Now I'm in the fitness and wellness field and damn it I love how my body is being shaped more and more every day. Coming from lack of motivation and self esteem issues I would never of even taken a picture close to this one, or for that matter in my sports bra, my spandex, hardly in my bathing suit (would delete most that showed my stomach before they ended up on Facebook or anywhere else.) So anyways, I coach people day in and day out, I see beautiful bodies transforming right in front of me! I appreciate what everyone looks like now, healthy isn't [I want to be skinny] Healthy is eating right, exercising enough to make a different pattern, it's healthy thinking about yourself and the confidence, it's allowing motivation to actually motivate you and take you somewhere. 200 lbs 500 lbs 150 lbs, I see it all, I'm proud of it all.
*If my team is reading this now, I love you and I really love your bodies and you as people, I'm proud of where you are taking yourself and what you are doing! *

So back to my body now, It has CURVES!!! and WOWZA I'm proud of myself I did something in my life that I take with me everyday and that I can feel great and look great! So 24lbs of fat later, I still kept my ass and I still kept my womanly parts. I don't have a problem saying it now, and from this picture I am going to do even more, I'm motivated that progress takes time and my fitness goals and my dreams will be accomplished.

Wake up in the morning and know today, YOU WONT QUIT! 
You will keep going towards your goals, because that is what matters!
It isn't the dress or the bikini, it is YOU - YOU have to want it and YOU have to strive for it!
If you don't know how, ask someone who does and who can help you. 
Give it 12 weeks before you give up.

You're Beautiful

I am beautiful. I am amazing. I am enough. I am strong. I am perfect for me. I am proud of who I am. I have confidence, and I'm so thankful for it. 

My husband tells me how I look beautiful or how great an outfit on me looks; and I never realized how true it is. Now I don't want this to come off the wrong way to people, but I love myself.

I used to look at the imperfections about myself and say how quickly I will get to fixing them. It's like when you put the clay mask on, and your impurities show vividly through. I for one have learned to love them and everything about myself. I am proud of who I am and how I look, I don't need to be a certain way - because the only two men that matter and care - God & my husband - don't care about the way I look or how I have a blemish that happens to be so natural...
They both tell me my beauty is there, and that it shines from inside.

I encourage my fellow women, to sit back and relax. Embrace yourself and all that you are. You are beautiful, strong, amazing, and perfect. Just keep that in mind as you go about your day. 💕

I am so thankful for Herbalife too; it has helped my confidence and helped shape me to be who I am today. I love my SKIN care and everything else about it. 

Plus the mint clay mask is AMAZING.
