Hey there!

An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Hi, friends! I hope your week is off to a wonderful start! 🙂

I heard a rumor that you guys enjoy these Sample Macro Day + Workouts to Try blog posts, so I’ll be sure to keep them coming on a regular basis. I hope they give you some fun ideas for your own meals, snacks, and workouts!

Breakfast – I was testing out a new CNC recipe and enjoyed a piece of this 4-Ingredient Salsa Breakfast Bake. It was so easy to toss together and turned out great! I was also craving a little something sweet, so I enjoyed half of an apple cider donut alongside my usual mug of iced coffee with collagen.

Post-Workout/Lunch – After a great mid-morning workout, I snacked on 1/2 an Atlas Bar while I whipped up lunch. I threw together this bowl using Trader Joe’s cauliflower rice stir fry with a simple peanut sauce.

Snack – I chowed down on a little mid-afternoon snack and snuck in extra veggies thanks to leftover roasted broccoli with hummus. I also wanted something a little crunchy and had a serving of Deep River Zesty Jalapeno Kettle Chips.

Dinner – I kept dinner easy thanks to another Trader Joe’s frozen goodie! This bowl included cauliflower gnocchi, shrimp, arugula, ghee, and parmesan cheese to finish it off. Delish!

Dessert – I wanted a little something sweet at the end of the evening and a mug of Reese’s Puffs with Ripple Milk hit the spot. Yum!!

Workouts to Try

Lunge and Leap EMOM – This workout is a fun mix of lower body + plyometrics. I love a good EMOM because time flies, and I’m done before I know it. I can promise you my legs felt this the next day!

30-Minute Full Body Burnout – This quick-moving circuit is broken down into body parts to knock out lower body, upper body, and a core workout in 30 minutes. Ten minutes of each will get you feeling the burn and happy to move on to the next set!

Kettlebell Killer – Ready, Set and GO is the name of the game for this kettlebell workout! Timed workouts are fun because it’s a little competition with yourself. You can always do this one again in a month and try to beat your previous time. Give it what you got and enjoy the sweat!

Favorite Fitness Deals

Sport’s Gym Bag (with shoe compartment) – I love the concept of this affordable gym bag! Having a totally separate compartment for dirty workout shoes is such a convenience if you don’t want to toss them in with all your clothes.

New York City Marathon Ghost 11 – Have you seen these sneakers yet?! If you know someone running the New York City Marathon this year or just someone who loves NYC, these shoes are FOR THEM! I’m obsessed – they’re so much fun!

Brooks Go To Running Tights – These are a workout staple for me!! These are a super flattering and durable leggings, so make sure to snag these while on sale for 40% off!

Brooks Dash Pullover Hoodie – This slouchy hoodie is newly on sale and will go great with everything, whether headed to the gym or off to run errands. Toss over your workout clothes or layer up to stay nicely bundled. It’s also 40% off right now!

Wubby Fleece Pullover – This fleece is so similar to the one I’ve been wearing non-stop this fall – and on sale for just $49!



  1. Wow all of that food looked delicious, and i love your meal suggestions as well they all sound great and relatively easy to follow.

  2. OMG PEANUT SAUCE. HOW did I forget about it and WHY haven’t I had it in so long?! Coconut-peanut-ginger chicken is one of my favs in all the land. Serve it over rice and omg. Also, apple cider donuts with coffee. Bless it.

  3. Trader Joe’s for the WIN…I love their frozen cauliflower stir fry.

    And I always love your workout ideas! Thanks for sharing…I’m going to use one of them for my “strength” part of my workout tomorrow 🙂

    Have a great week!

  4. Are the macros for half the donuts or for the whole donut that is pictured? Also… how have I never tried Reese’s Puffs cereal???? Looks so good.

  5. I love these posts. I just printed out the breakfast casserole recipe and the black forest egg cups. I just bought a bag of the gnocchi from TJ. Do you have a favorite way to cook them? I have seen many people post videos but they get complicated. I always appreciate what you offer since usually it is fast, easy and tasty. Thanks!
