WIAW: Easy, Healthy Crab Salad

Hi friends!  Happy WIAW! Before I dive into today’s food festivities, I wanted to thank you all SO MUCH for all your amazing support, comments, and feedback on my last post. I have to admit, this past month has been hard, but you’re continued positivity towards me has been so motivating and good for my accountability. This exercise break journey isn’t done yet so I hope to continue sharing my progress with you as time goes on. Would you be interested in further updates? For this week’s I have a lovely seafood-ful recipe to share with you all! It’s a go-to for a quick high protein lunch or snack and is pretty versatile as well! No matter if you have tuna, salmon, sardines, or in this case CRAB, the salad can be mixed up and adapted to suit your tastes! I am a SEAFOOD FANATIC (as you know!) so I am always looking for easy ways to sneak it in to my diet all throughout the week. This is a perfect, delicious solution….especially when you’re short on time! Check it out below… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

WIAW: Fiber Love Bar Giveaway!

Happy Wednesday everyone! Boy am I glad to be half way through the week! Last weekend was great, but this week started off a bit rough for me for some reason. Lots of emotions. Lots of thinking. And lots of resisting temptation. But I got through it and I’ll only be stronger in the long run for it. I am particularly happy today because not only is it WIAW (which I always enjoy sharing with you), not only do I have an awesome giveaway for you all, BUT ALSO I got news yesterday that my all time favorite comedian is coming back to Buffalo! See, last time he was here I was making my way across the ocean to the Philippines. No regrets of course, but I was pretty bummed to be missing him! Well, lucky for me….he’s back!
