Atkins Frozen Meals for the Busy Working Mom

I returned to work 2 weeks ago. My life has been INSANE. I don't remember it being this busy when I worked out of the home from 2009-2012.

Perhaps it's that I'm getting up at 4:30am so that I can get to CrossFit En Fuego. If I don't workout at that time, it's not going to happen in my busy day since I get off of work at 5:30pm and have an hour commute home and the latest my box is open is 6pm. So it's either first thing in the morning or not at all. And not at all is not an option.

By the time I get home from the box, get the kids up, get their breakfast made, lunches packed, showered, dressed and ready to head out the door, that's generally when I say "oh no! I forgot to make my own lunch!"

When this happens (which is more often than I'd like) I'm so thankful that I can just reach in and grab a frozen Atkins meal.

There are so many to choose from!

From the Sesame Chicken

 

To the Pasta Bake

 

It makes it super easy for me to just grab and go, and with the net carbs listed right on the front of the box, I can easily know exactly how many carbs are in my meal. And with following the Atkins40 plan, I just simply deduct that total from my 40 daily, and I'm on my happy way!

I haven't been on the scale because I'm really trying hard to not focus on that number. Instead I'm gauging it based on how much energy I have, and how my clothing feels. And both of those measurements are a-okay. So I'm happy.

You can follow Atkins on Twitter, Facebook, and check out their website, too.

If you're a working parent, how do you try to fit in making a healthy lunch for work??

#OrganicPet Food Win a ONE YEAR SUPPLY from Castor & Pollux

Earlier this month I shared with you the results of the Organic Pet food survey. Most pet parents agreed that feeding their pet organic food was very important. But more than half did not.

On a recent visit to my local PetSmart, I noticed that an entire end cap was devoted to the Castor and Pollux Organix dog food.

I knew I was going to buy Matthew one of their bags of dry food, but I wasn't sure which one. I put them all out on display and tried to decide (with the help of Ella and Ronin) which one Matthew would enjoy the most.

Ella wanted to get the bag on the left because it had a Husky on the bag, and she loves Husky dogs! Ronin and I both agreed that Matthew would be best served by the Large Breed Dog Food, so that's the one we bought! We also picked up a few cans of food.

He was super excited to try out his new food!

So we didn't waste any time in getting some in his belly!

And let me tell you...HE LOVED IT!

We LOVED that Matthew loved this food so much, and I can totally tell a difference in his overall coat and um....doggy waste. He stools are much less stinky, they are more firm, and the are actually SMALLER than when he eats non-organic food. Even my husband noticed a difference, which says a lot.

Castor & Pollux wants to give one of YOU a YEAR's supply of organic pet food!!
