Cabbage & Chicken Saute

Ingredients:
1 head of red cabbage
6-8 chicken breasts
Minced garlic
2 T olive oil
½ C water
½ C vegetable broth
2 T rosemary
2 T celery seed
Pepper & salt to taste

1.) Cube your cabbage while a large sauce-pan with olive oil heats to high.
2.) Toss cabbage into pan on high while you rinse & cut chicken into long strips.
3.) Reduce heat to medium, pour water & broth in overtop.
4.) Cover the saucepan (with a top or a large cookie sheet), toss in your seasonings, reduce heat to low, & let simmer for 20-30 minutes.
5.) Check your chicken periodically, pulling it out of the pan & re-stirring the cabbage when it’s done.
6.) Let your cabbage simmer an extra 15-20 minutes after pulling the chicken, until soft.

The weather outside is weather. But this mocha coffee & apple cinnamon rice cake (not pictured, already inhaled) are absolutely, exactly what I needed to curb this craving and get my butt moving after job 1 and before job 2. Good thing this is a rest day!! #fitness #health #wellness #fitlife #instafit #instagram #foodie #chef #chocolatelover #snow #dmv #maryland #bmorefit #baltimorefitness #balance #pursuehappiness #relentlessimprovement #reasonforrisa

Getting goofy waiting for coffee to brew this morning. I swear I got work done!! … Only after that first cup o’ joe though. Haha. Coffee = life. #nomakeup #nofilter #natural #nohairbrush #rolledoutofbed #goofy #wellness #health #fitness #fitspo #fitspiraton #ig_fit #inspiration #motivation #bmorefit #pursuehappiness #reasonforrisa #relentlessimprovement

Had a weekend revelation … And I have to say, I’m pretty excited about this progress. Hate to be a cliche, but it really does take looking back to see how far you’ve come. Taking the year “off” from competing to build, muscles AND a metabolism. Lol. Anyway … Timeline is as follows: UL—June 2012. UR—January 2013. LL—June 2013 (into prep). And LR—Saturday!!

Moral of the story? Keep at it. No matter what … And do what makes you happy. Hehe. So yea. Idk. Pretty proud of this. Was nervous to post … Please be nice. LOL.

Choose to see the glass as half full instead of empty. Choose positivity over negativity. Choose to start loving yourself for everything you are instead of hating yourself for everything you’re not. #fitness #health #fitspo #wellness #nutrition #bodybuilding #npc #crossfit #ifbb #iwill #pursuehappiness #happinessisachoice #relentlessimprovement #reasonforrisa #wisewordswednesday #wisdomwednesday

#TRUTH … DO NOT, for one more second surround yourself with people who do not appreciate you, who do not value you, who break you down, attack your character, or make you question who you are. Sometimes you can’t help who you’re surrounded by, you fall into a situation that’s not so easy to get out of, or people change … But at the end of the day, it is of the utmost importance that you #staytruetoyou … Live your life. Do what makes you happy. Remind yourself just how AWESOME you are. And for the love … Do not stop dreaming.
SO … As hard as it might be to walk away from these people who knock you down? Do it. Turn. Walk. & don’t look back. If you can’t turn & walk? Hold your head high in knowing who you are at your core … that you ARE a good person with good intentions & a big heart … that you work hard … & that you are doing the best you can. #endrant #fitness #health #wellness #advice #bodybuilding #npc #ifbb #figure #strongissexy #girlswithmuscle
