• My first time vending with @supermomculture at @craftsavvymarket today. I had so many moments leading up to today that I told myself that it would be a lot easier to just quit and not have a both.  But then I thought, if it was easy, everyone would be doing it.  Just remember when you have an idea that starting is half the battle.  It won’t be easy but it can be done! Thank you @craftsavvymarket for having me today.  Mr and the girls helped out so much. Thank you to everyone that came by to support! I have no clue who the little girl is on the left but she stayed with us the whole day.
  • And another ☝🏾. My precious babies. How did Harper grow up so fast! She looks 6! Slow down baby! #pictureday

Time flies! I’m still desperately trying to fit back in it! My goal for 2020!
  • Fall school pics are in and Peyton made mama proud! Low key annoyed they cut off her beautiful puff. It’s good to see all my hard work taking pics for the blog have paid off in these school pics. picture day hack: stick to a tried and true hair style. I tried something diff once and Peyton looked like Kid from Kid n Play. I didn’t even order any. Don’t do it!

Real talk from start to finish. I’ll share my takeaways on my stories later but @cantubeauty commitment to insuring we take action and holding us accountable is what I needed.  Time is up for going to events and not taking action.  I’m ready! 📷 @daynabolden. Hat from #targetstyle Jeans #fashionova

Consider this my winter uniform. Details and links are on the blog heytrina.com. Link to hoodie in my profile. 📷 @kaynjames
  • Nobody:
Me: Let me clean out all my kitchen cabinets along with everything else going on 😆. I actually enjoy decluttering (my spaces, not others). Swipe ->. My mind feels at peace when spaces are clean and organized.  Ever since @pinchofhelp did my master bathroom, I’ve been on a mission.  I’m not good like her but I stalk her IG daily for all her tips and before & afters.  My kitchen is (almost) ready for Thanksgiving! Please send positive vibes on the rest of the projects we have going on 🙏🏿. Details on the blog. Link in profile #heytrinashome #babyshopahome
  • Doing a mini extreme home makeover just in time for the holidays! Shout out to Mr for speaking my love language and getting ish done in the house (wife porn as @snackswithjack calls it 😆). This past wknd he knocked out our 20ft foyer and hung my new chandelier! It was like watching the Berlin Wall come down 🙌🏾. Also thankful that we didn’t have any incidents on this scaffold 😓. I was so happy when they picked it up cuz my nerves were so bad. We still have a lot more to do but we’re chipping away.  Make sure you watch my stories for updates.
  • Peyton as Cecilia from Decendants. Instead of a wig I used a clip in ponytail.  I may use it in the future for myself if I’m feeling feisty. She went to school as Run DMC because she was unsure if they could dress up or not.  Can your kids dress up at school?

30 Day Protein Challenge: Easy Beef + Veggie Stir-fry

September 30, 2016

This post is brought to you by The Beef Checkoff and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.

In my never-ending journey to eating right, I’ve learned a few things about myself.  I love carbs but they don’t love me back.  I tend to fill up on carbs to compensate for not getting enough protein in my diet.  When I overload on carbs, I feel sluggish and hungry for the rest of the day.  For the month of October, I’ll be participating in the 30 Day Protein Challenge in an effort to increase my energy levels, improve my overall health and maybe lose a few pounds.  I’m kicking off the Protein Challenge with this easy beef and veggie stir fry.

I made my beef stir fry based off this recipe from the 30 Day Protein Challenge (HERE).  For my version of the stir fry, I used top round steak and my favorite veggies.  I’m still shocked on how easy (and cheap) it is to make stir fry at home.  I also excited to try more protein rich recipes like Portuguese Steak Kabobs, Burger on a Salad and Tacos.

I’ve noticed that after eating protein packed meals through out the day I have more energy and it keeps my appetite under control.  The Beef Checkoff has developed the Protein Challenge, a fun, step-by- step 30-day plan to help you get a balanced amount of protein at each meal.  The 30 Day Protein Challenge helps you keep track of your food, hunger and moods to see how simple diet changes can make a difference in your overall health and wellness for 30 days and beyond.  Everything you need to join me on the 30 Day Protein Challenge can be found HERE.   Plenty of great recipes and tools to help you during this challenge.

Need help learning how you can add protein to your meals for a better balanced diet?  Join us for a Twitter party on Thursday, October 20 at 1 p.m. ET using #ProteinChallenge. We’ll be talking about tips and inspiration for quick and easy protein-rich meals and snacks. There well also be giveaways during the party.  RSVP for the party HERE.

Have you ever taken the time to notice how your body reacts to certain foods?  I’m positive after taking the 30 Day Protein Challenge we’ll all notice a significant difference in our body and hopefully the scale.

    What stir fry sauce did you use?

    I think it was Lawry’s teriyaki ginger marinade/sauce. There are so many flavors to choose from.

    Thank you. I remember you mentioning a sauce from Aldi on your snap. I went there looking for it and a sales person said they don’t sell a stir fry sauce.

    Yes, I have used the Aldi sauce but it’s one of their “special” items so when they run out, it’s out. I hate I didn’t stock up! I think they bring it back on occasion. I check every time I go. The others work just as good once you find a flavor you like. Let me know how yours turns out.

    Check the site for vegetarian options. I’m sure you could sub the meat for your favorite protein options. The tools for the challenge are still great to use.
