Twisted Elf On A Shelf Idea: Hostage Situation with Green Soldiers

This is such a cute Naughty Elf on a Shelf idea using blue tape and little green soldiers (GI Joes?). He looks like he has been captured and has been taken hostage. These little plastic soldiers are very special to me because my parents used to hide these little green soldiers all over the house and when you would find one it was kind of like an "I love you" gesture. I think I may have to get an elf and he will stay in this pose all Christmas season. Lol! Don't judge me.

Meal Prep Saturday with Recipe Links

Meal Prep Saturday

My sweet husband brought me home these roses from the store this morning. So, I was able to enjoy them as I did some meal prepping today. He is such a sweetheart. Don't you just love fresh flowers. I often wonder why I don't buy them more often. 

Here's a list of a few things I meal prepped this weekend with the links for the recipes. Make sure to plan your meals and snacks so you will be prepared as  you head out the door for work in the morning. Having your meals partially prepped will give you more time to squeeze in your workout and help you stay on track toward your fitness and weight loss goals. Also, leaving you more time to enjoy with your family.

Simple Meal Prep Grilled Chicken 

Baked Banana Choco Chip Oatmeal Cups - really good for quick breakfasts when you are running out the door. They do freeze well. Thaw and enjoy!

Baked cauliflower - rinse and cut cauliflower. Drizzle with about 1 -2 tbsp olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and chipotle seasoning (optional). Bake at 425* for about 30 minutes or until roasted and tender.

Brown Rice - cook according to package instructions. Make extra and freeze into 4-5 serving sizes and 1 serving sizes. Take out of freezer; cut away bag, microwave until thawed and enjoy!  

Hummus served with mini sweet bell peppers and celery. 

How to: Simple Meal Prep Grilled Chicken

Simple Grilled Chicken

Thaw 1 - 4 packages boneless skinless chicken breast, sprinkle with garlic powder and a seasoning blend like jerk chicken, mrs dash original or really any mixed seasoning. Drizzle with about 1 tbsp olive oil and rub in seasoning. Place on indoor or outdoor grill until cooked in the middle (approx 165 inside - sometimes I undercook a little so that when I reheat it will not be dry). Remove; allow to cool. Cut into bite size pieces and place 3-4 oz in a zip lock bag or a storage container. Freeze. When ready to eat, microwave until warm.

These are great for salads, stuffing a pita sandwich, or just pairing with a steamed vegetable (steamfresh frozen are great!) and 1/2 cup of brown rice.

Watch this short video on how I meal prep my chicken. It's not the best video, but I hope it helps.

Cross Training to Get Better Results and Faster Weight Loss

Cross training can help build muscle faster and help you lose weight quicker due to the fact that muscle burns more calories per pound than fat does. Cardio is great, but you will see even better results when you combine a weight training routine such as P90X, P90X3, Body Beast, Chalean Extreme, Body Pump, or any weight training routine. I recommend changing up your at home workout program every 2-3 months to see maximum results and confuse the muscles, or you could do a hybrid workout combining 1-3 different workouts. Of coarse, you can create your own weight training routines, but many people have a difficult time keeping up with what muscles on what days, etc. I love being able to watch a video and be told exactly how, what and how many to do to get results. If you can afford a trainer and have time to drive to and from the gym, then I am all for getting a personal trainer, but most of us do not have the time or money to do that.
