Happy Monday!! Getting back into the swing of things!! I feel like I have been so off ever since my trip to Florida!

Luckily some of that Florida sunshine made its way to Indiana and Kentucky this weekend!! I went on a last minute trip to visit C in KY this weekend! 2 months and 7 days to the big day!! I was feeling a little overwhelmed with wedding planning so we decided to take a weekend off and just hang out! 

Saturday we enjoyed the beautiful weather with a nice walk and motorcycle ride! Then we went to our FAVORITE restaurant in Louisville! Hammerheads! If you are ever in town, you HAVE to go! By no means is this a healthy meal! Fried mac and cheese balls (best I ever had), rack of lamb ribs, duck tacos, and fries fried in duck fat! 

The best is that I used to feel SO guilty after meals like this! I would beat myself up that I spent all this time working out during the week and would eat like a pig on the weekend! But I learned that cheat meals ARE necessary! You have to have them! And if you don't cheat the rest of the time, you feel guilt free! 

I stick to my meal plan M-F and allow myself 2 cheat meals a week! That's it! And you know what, its all I need! I truly earn those fries and mac and cheese balls! I eat them with no shame and then I woke up today for my 5 am workout and started off another week right! 

Nutrition is HARD, especially if you are a foodie like me! But I have learned some AWESOME tips and recipes, coupled with workouts, that has truly made my fitness journey successful! 

Right now I am offering a 2 week FREE trial of workouts and accountability groups coupled with meal plans and recipes! Seriously, no catch! I know some of you have wanted to pull the trigger and before you make the official investment, why not give it a try! Totally free and if you hate it, no worries, I will still love ya :) 


  1. I definitely try to do the same - stick to healthy meals all during the week so I can let a little loose on the weekends! Just so much good food out there!

  2. Two cheat meals a week sounds sustainable! Much better than two cheat DAYS!

  3. SO glad you were able to go see C! :) Your wedding will be here before you know it, so exciting. :)

  4. I'm a foodie too, it's super hard for me to eat healthy unless I know a cheat meal is coming up during the weekend! haha

  5. Great post! I try to work out and eat really well during the week so I can "cheat" a little on the weekends! Sweet things in moderation, is how I like to look at it! :)

  6. Sounds like a really fun weekend with lots of sunshine. I love rich foods and have the worst sweet tooth!

  7. You go girl!!! Those fried Mac and cheese balls sound delicious and so worth a little cheat for them! Thank you for sharing this with us at On Monday We Link-Up...very motivating!!
