50 days… and a little Double chocolate protein muffins

I am going to be 35 in 50 days. I cannot believe it. I have been blessed with an amazing husband, 2 beautiful daughters and my health. I have some personal challenges I want to achieve and my goal for some of them are by this BIG birthday!

Over the next 50 days I WILL focus on my “I will” challenge. Staying positive and getting rid of the negatives. I am at a point where I want to evaluate what is important to me and how I want to live my life. Health and fitness has become a huge part of this. I have goals for this blog, my recipes and a few other things.  When the time comes I will share.

The next 50 days are focused on clean eating, the gym and staying focused on my goals. I can do it! I WILL DO it.

What that here come a great post-workout protein muffin:

About Lisa Lamb

This is a way for me to share my passion for living a healthy lifestyle, share my fitness journey and to create low calorie recipes for us and my daughter Makenna who has Prader-Willi Syndrome! Description My daughter was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Prader-Willi Syndrome which in a nutshell, (but please feel free to google for more information) will cause a chronic feeling of hunger that, coupled with a metabolism that utilizes drastically fewer calories than normal, can lead to excessive eating and life-threatening obesity. The food compulsion makes for constant supervision necessary. This page is dedicated to her. She inspires me everyday to live a happy, healthy and active lifestyle. I want to create a healthy environment for her. With my passion for nutrition and fitness, I hope I can spread awareness about PWS and create healthy recipes for her to enjoy with never feeling deprived. She has given me new hope to move forward with my passion in nutrition and become a Registered Dietitian. My focus will be on childhood obesity, emphasizing in PWS. I look forward to sharing my journey with you all! ***Please note I am not a Registered Dietitian. I would classify myself as a "nutrition snob." I do all of this because I love learning about food and fitness. All the recipes posted are tired and can be adjusted to your lifestyle. ***
