Our High Protein Plan + Health Test Results + A GIVEAWAY!

After this summer, Jared and I started feeling a little more sluggish, so we decided to change up our eating routine for a little refresher. Jared found an Athletic High Protein plan online and we followed it as closely as we could, with some modifications. With my past history of not eating enough and counting calories, Jared was the only one to look at the website so I wouldn't get caught up in the number game again. This plan was AWESOME because you didn't have to count any calories, the whole goal was to focus on getting at least 20g of protein at each meal and we ate 5 meals per day. Y'all know we love to eat, so this was our kinda meal plan!
Here's a sample day of eats on the plan:
Pre-Workout: Healthy PB bites or Banana and PB 
M1:  Oatmeal + Egg Whites with 1 egg and fruit 
On the days we did a strength training workout, we added protein to our eggs and oatmeal to kick that number up higher!

M2: Chicken and Broccoli 
M3: Chicken Salad made with Greek Yogurt, Corn, and a Sweet Potato
M4: Protein Shake
M5: Chicken and Veggie Stir Fry 

Each day, the menu was a little different. Breakfasts were always changing and we even had smoothie bowls every Thursday morning!

Being part of the Sweat Pink community, I was given the opportunity to review these new Meal Enders:

We only ate them after a meal when we were still a little hungry. 
 MealEnders consist of two components: a sweet, outer reward layer and a cooling/tingling inner core. The outer layer provides a measured dose of “dessert” associated with the end of a meal, while the inner core engages the trigeminal nerve (the nerve that senses “taste”) with long-lasting cooling/tingling sensations that cleanse the palate.

 (Side note, Jared and I are extremely fast eaters, so this actually helped us a lot! We learned to slow down and enjoy each bite. Now, we don't have to use the Meal Enders to cue our brain! Win!)

**Be sure to keep scrolling to the bottom of this post for a chance to WIN some Meal Enders for yourself! One bag of each flavor, Cinnamon, Mint Chocolate, Mocha, and Citrus!**

Each week, we chose one TREAT meal to enjoy. One week, we recreated the most epic panini we ate this summer up in Canada. It had ham, double cream brie cheese, caramelized onion, and apple slices. IT WAS SO GOOD!

We have a few pros and cons of the plan and wanted to share with you. 

1. It's expensive to eat so much meat!  
2. You have to clean SO MANY dishes and tupperware containers. 
3. Prepping food ahead of time takes a while. 
4. We missed cheese and sauces and healthy fats! haha (We definitely added some avocado to a few meals just because we felt our bodies telling us we needed it)

1. We FELT so much better just after the first day!
2. We gained some lean muscle.
3. Being the Type A planner that I am, I liked the fact that I didn't have to think about what to pack for lunch and make for dinner each day. It was already done for me!
4. There wasn't any calorie counting at all! 
5. We felt full after pretty much every meal, with the exception of a few times. 
6. We no longer feel sluggish.
7. We have cut way down on excess snacking. 
8. We ENJOY our food more instead of inhaling it like it's going to be gone if we don't eat it super fast.  
9. Treat meal was always so awesome because we had something to REALLY look forward to every week!

After the month was over, we took a health test to see how we were doing overall.

We were THRILLED to see what we both had great blood pressure, good cholesterol, and blood sugar.
I just have to add in the fun fact that I did score ONE point higher than Jared for the total!!
We timed the month PERFECTLY as Jared headed to 2nd Stage Q-School the day after it was over. The last thing he needs is to worry about meal prep and counting protein at a golf tournament! He is still eating healthy during the week though. :)

Also, our FitSnack box came the day we were ending the plan too, so we could dig right into the awesome goodies! 

I immediately made some more peanut butter bites with the Hemp Hearts thrown in and this delicious baked oatmeal with the Super Oats and Protein Bite Fuel on top! SOOOO GOOD!

All of the snacks are nutritious and healthy and taste awesome! Go check it out for yourself!

Refresh Summit '15

Refresh Summit '15 was INCREDIBLE! This retreat was JUST what I needed in order to be refreshed, rejuvenated, and pumped up for this upcoming crazy golf season! 

Friday morning started early and we packed the car full of Nature's Bakery Fig Bars to share!!!  

(Gotta give hubs a big shout out first... He drove the entire trip there and back with the exception of me driving for a two and a half hour spurt! He dropped me off on Friday around 5, drove to Clarksville to spend the night with my family, got up early on Saturday and drove two hours to his golf lesson, then drove another 2 hours to Louisville to spend the night with his family, only to turn right back around Sunday morning to come pick me up at noon! It was a jam packed weekend for Jared, but filled with love and a golf lesson, oh and tons of quality time in the car with his best friend singing and having a good ol' time)
This is my new workout shirt I scored for only $10! 
I loved our devotionals each morning. I want to be physically strong in my body, but even more strong spiritually! 
The food was super tasty! The lodge had chefs come in and cook us dinner each night! YUM! 
The snacks were plentiful all weekend! Everyone LOVED the Fig bars! They were a HUGE hit! :)
I got in some awesome workouts! Lindsay taught a bootcamp, Ashley taught Barre, and Amia taught Zumba! My legs were on fire after all that!

We even had an 80's Zumba GLOW Dance Party! We had glowsticks and bracelets and danced our hearts out!   
I loved meeting Ashley! She is awesome and we actually grew up in the same town! She is 3 years older than me, and we went to the same highschool, but she graduated in the spring before I started going in the fall. She is also good friends with one of my college roomies! SMALL WORLD! Oh, and she's the one who taught the Barre workout.... KICKED MY BUTT!

I ended up winning a package of Lenny and Larry's Protein Cookies! They were definitely opened on the long drive home. Snickerdoodle has my heart! 

Overall, the weekend was incredible and I was so thankful I got birthday money to help pay for the trip! God has truly blessed the Wolfepack!!! 

I only had ONE complaint... it was COLD for this Florida gal! ;)  Everyone up north was talking about how warm it was and I was talking about how I was freezing since I stepped foot out of the car! HAHAHA! It really wasn't TOO cold, but man, I sure do love being able to lay out at the pool in the middle of November at our condo!!!

Over the weekend, God revealed to me that I am TRULY MADE IN HIS IMAGE. I don't need to feel pressured by the world to look, act, or think a certain way. God made me unique and created me to be JUST the way I am! 

It was really neat to meet up with some of the girls from last year and see how much they have been up to over the past year! God is doing some amazing things in all of them and I am so thankful for their friendships!! 

Thank you to all the sponsors who donated to the retreat and the incredible hosts who organized everything! LOVE YOU ALL!

Recent Eats!

Hello! Today we wanted to share a few of our recent eats with everyone! 

First up, we are halfway through our new eating plan and we are loving it! It's HIGH PROTEIN with frequent smaller meals. For breakfast one day, we made a delicious protein puff and it's SUPER EASY to make! 
All you need is oatmeal, egg whites, and protein powder.
Spray a microwave safe bowl with nonstick spray, pour in your oats, eggwhites, and protein. You can play with the measurements for yourself, but we used about 1/4 ~ 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup eggwhites, and a 4th of a scoop of protein powder. Just mix it all up and zap in the microwave for about 2 minutes. The total protein count for this recipe is OVER 20 grams! :)  

Of course, we always find some AWESOME new snacks in our FitSnack Box each month! 
This month, our favorite was the Caveman Foods Chicken Primal Bar! It had a cherry flavor to it and it was packed with 18g of protein! All of the snacks are nutritious and healthy and taste awesome! Go check it out for yourself!
If you sign up, you will receive a free gym bag! Fun stuff! 

We were also blessed with another LOVE DROP! Thank you Love Grown Foods for all the nutritious and delicious breakfast foods!

What the Wolfepack's Been Up To

It's been a while since we've done a life update, so here goes...

My birthday was a couple of weeks ago, and Jared was at first stage, so we celebrated on the Saturday when he got back. He knows quality time is my love language, so he gave me the best present ever!!! It was such an awesome day and I loved every second of it. 
 We have finally gotten rid of random boxes and things we don't need and our new place is coming along quite nicely. It's still a one bedroom apartment, so we decided to utilize the space and use Jared's golf equipment as decoration! 

I absolutely hate fish and can't stand the smell of it, so when Jared caught some fish to bring home and eat, he was able to use the super nice grill area at the new pool clubhouse! 


My parents came to visit for a few days and it was great! My dad and Jared went deep sea fishing one day and my mom and I got mani-pedis. We had a game night one evening and it was super fun! It was a wonderful visit. 

We even got in a few workouts... well at least my mom did with us, dad took it easy. haha

Jared and I have decided to try a new style of eating for a month just to have a refresher. We have been snacking a lot in the evenings lately, so we are basically just cleaning up our eating a little bit. We are not following a super strict plan, just eating less packaged snacks along with extra cheese/sauces.


We received these Multivitamins and Coconut Oil Pills from Purely Inspired and they fit in perfectly with our new eating plan! The coconut oil gives us a little extra energy boost in the morning and the Multivitamins have fruits and veggies in them too! Win win! 

We received these AWESOME Granilla Bars to try out and they are Paleo, so they fit in perfectly with our new plan too! We have been enjoying them as our mid morning snack! They are  You can find them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

They also have Granilla Crumble, which is a 50/50 blend of their best selling Dark Chocolate Honey bar and Cherry Maple bar mixed together to create a delectable tasting grain-free, gluten-free cereal like no other. (I forgot to snap a pic of it) It is very tasty as well!

Lastly, my women's small group took a trip to the corn maze last week and it was super fun! We definitely got lost, but we eventually find our way out! Of course, we had delicious Fig Bars to munch on during the afternoon.  

Well, that's what the Wolfepack has been up to lately. Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Thursday Things

These are perfect for adding to our energy bites, yogurt, and oatmeal! They are full of protein and Omega 3&6!

This stuff definitely lives up to the name! It's really good! The only ingredient was PEANUTS, nothing else! DELICIOUS! We enjoyed it on our bagels, oatmeal, yogurt, and straight from the jar!
