Homemade Burrito Bowls


We LOVE Chipotle's but HATE the price! Make your own takeout for half the price! Check out my recipe for Homemade Burrito Bowls that even Collin enjoys! ( I really want to say kids there but Mason, well he is so darn picky of an eater that yeah, he only tried the rice and a little bit of the chicken and that was still a fight! Anyone else have a pickey eater?)

Homemade Burrito Bowls

Ingredients:


4 chicken tenders, defrosted
Louisiana Cajan Blackened Seasoning (Walmart)
1 Can Black Beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup cooked brown rice (I precook my rice on Sunday so I just have to scoop and reheat!)
Cheddar cheese, shredded
Handful of spinach, roughly chopped

Directions: 

Heat grill pan on stovetop. 
Sprinkle chicken with seasoning on both sides and rub onto meat. 
Cook chicken until juices turn clear, about 6 minutes per side.
Heat the black beans on stove or in a microwave safe bowl
Re-heat 1 cup cooked brown rice in the microwave and season with the fajita seasoning

You can also add more veggies like saut├ęd bell peppers and onions. Or top with 1 tsp of guacamole. 

To plate: 
Brown rice on the bottom, spoon black beans on top of rice. Add chicken. Sprinkle with a little shredded cheddar and top with spinach.

And because I follow the container system with the 21 Day Fix here are the serving sizes I use. 1.5 greens of spinach, 1 yellow of rice, 1/2 yellow of black beans, 1 red of chicken, 1/2 blue cheese. ENJOY!

Elyse Cheyenne: 2 Months


Elyse is 2 months. and boy howdy did this past month FLY BY! It is kind of bittersweet how fast this month went. As we are talking about if we are going to have any more kids. And if she is our last one...well, it's really sad and hard to think about! Anyhew, back to Elyse. Baby girl is getting into a sleep pattern. She is very particular about her sleeping time. She is a little beauty so it is doing her quite well in that department. (Be sure to view all the way to the bottom to see her outtakes!)

Her Stats: 
Weight: 10 pounds 1.2 ounces
Height: 22 1/4 inches tall


A Day in the life of Elyse:

  • 7:30pm - she starts to get cranky. Elyse wants to be asleep around this time but that is when the boys are getting ready to go to bed, so she waits until the boys are in their room and she gets to feed. 
  • 8:30- out cold. Generally she falls asleep on my chest but then I move her to her bassinet which she is sleeping in and napping in all the time now! It is so nice! 
  • 1am give or take an hour for midnight feed. 
  • 5am for morning feed.
  • 7am- forced up to take brother to the bus stop
  • 9am- another nap after big morning feed
  • 11:30am- MY favorite time of day...11:30. Mommy quiet time. Both her and Collin go down at the same time and it is AMAZING! This is new for us for about a week now where I don't have to be in the same room as her when she is napping. So I have been getting work done for coaching, making my lunch and EXERCISING! 
  • 2:50pm- Forced up again at to pick up brother from the bus stop again. 
  • 4pm- another nap after another feed.

 IT is so nice having a good schedule. She is feeding well before every nap time too!

I'm still exclusively nursing. No pumping. No bottles. So I am attached to her all the time it seems. Can't go long without seeing her or being around her and that is ok. I don't mind at all. She is all smiles now too. She loves to smile at us now! She thinks it is the funniest when I buzz my lips at her. That always gets a great grin!

So a little behind these monthly pictures of her. The way I got her to stop crying and look at me...I had to say "Pretty girl!" And mean it. She loves being told how pretty and beautiful she is. It even worked for Matt. He didn't believe me when I said that she loves it but when he did it and she just looked at him, softened her gaze at him he was impressed! She is a pretty girl! So blessed to be her momma!



Also beginning on MONDAY, December 5 I will be starting my Health Up The Holidays group. Join me as this is my first month back doing a strength training workout since I had her and really since I was about 32 weeks pregnant. I will be brand new basically. So if you want to be in a group that is for beginners and support for that. THIS IS THE GROUP TO JOIN! Let's get our healthy on before the holidays and already be rocking our goals out before January 1! Want to start right in with 21 Day Fix, which I personally think is the BEST beginning workout program out there...CLICK HERE to get your own copy and a month supply of Shakeology to help cut your cravings and to help you get even better results.

You Always Have 2 Choices

This month my goal was to say NO to excuses, guilt, junk food, soda, regrets, giving up and quitting, to being the best person that we can be. One thing that I find I still do sometimes is compare myself to others. Why can't I be that lean? Why can't I be as successful as so and so? Why can't I have her confidence?

I am working so hard to drop these negative mental thoughts because they are nothing but self destructive. Remember when I said a couple of weeks ago, "It can't be that easy." well that was another negative thought. It comes down to 2 things. Either you do it, or your don't. Either you eat better because you want to be healthy or you don't. Either you exercise to feel better or you don't. There is not grey area. When we make grey areas we are just setting ourself up for settling with the same old stuff you have been doing and not reaching our maximum potential, that brought you to this point and you guys, I want you to reach your max potential. I want to reach my potential. It just comes from deciding, committing and doing, succeeding. So be a flower. Stop comparing, or letting negative thoughts rule your life. Just do and bloom!
