Go Becky Go

I'm Becky, 24 year old Florida native living in Colorado. Marathon runner trying to get back into running. I like to lift, and am currently working on "getting back on the wagon" for weight loss. I originally started this blog and lost 25 pounds and kept it off for a long time, then life happened and I'm up higher than my original starting weight. I do Crossfit, also. And I love Harry Potter.

This is not a weight loss blog, it's my blog and I talk about whatever I want including weight loss and food and boys and running and drinking and lots of pictures of myself. I have little to no filter when it comes to the things I say, I am kinda opinionated, so sometimes I'm awkward, but I'm pretty awesome.

Height: 5'2"

HW: 191 lbs

LW: 142 lbs (Sept/2011)

CW: 184.4 lbs (6/2/14)

Goal: to run fast and be healthy.

I love talking to new people, so if you have any questions just ask!

Haven’t taken a picture of my food in a while, this was delicious. Sweet potato, two eggs, and an avocado. Yum!

Meal prep for the win! I just made all of this in the last two hours. On top of this I have some brown rice that I’m making that will be part of this.

Since my downfall is always laziness to cook, I figured that since I had the energy now that I would take advantage.

I have pistachios, pecans, and dried banana chips for snacks.

Fruit smoothie in one bottle, and in the other two is a split up banana protein shake made with almond milk.

In the baggies I made “homemade protein bars”, recipe was from the New Rules of Lifting for Women, it’s basically just peanut butter, flaxseed, and protein powder, but it’s not too bad from the sample I tried.

In one container I have grilled chicken, the other was grilled sirloin pork chops? Tastes like pork, never heard of “sirloin” pork though. I guess that’s a part or something. Who knows.

And in the last container is a mixture of red and yellow onions, little red potatoes, green onions, and ground turkey. I can eat that on its own or I can get a portion, and cook it up with eggs for breakfast.

PLUS, I still have protein pancakes left from this morning. Yay!

I made myself protein pancakes for breakfast, wish I had fruit with it, but still good!


7-Eleven just released mozzarella sticks made from Doritos and everyone’s freaking out.

Waking up late and cleaning my apartment before eating has led to me not having breakfast until 1:40 in the afternoon. But I made it delicious!



Raw Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake

1 cup dates
1/2 cup almonds

  1. Blend together and spread at the bottom of a parchment paper lined 6 inch round pan. Set aside

Chocolate Layer:
2 bananas
2 cups cashews, soaked for 2 hours
3 tablespoons cacao powder
2 tablespoons maple syrup

  1. Blend ingredients together until a smooth texture is reached. Pour mixture into pan and place in the freezer for 8 hours or overnight.

Peanut Butter Cups:
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup cacao powder
2 tablespoons maple syrup
Peanut butter

  1. Mix together coconut oil, cacao powder, and maple syrup. Pour enough chocolate to cover the bottom of the lined mini cupcake pans. Set in the freezer for 10 minutes to set up. Remove and spoon a small amount of peanut butter in the middle of the cups. Pour the rest of the chocolate over top of the peanut butter to cover completely. Place in the freezer for 20-30 minutes to set up.

  2. Once everything is completed, remove the cheesecake and peanut butter cups from the freezer. Place the peanut butter cups on top of the cheesecake however you’d like. I used 6 of the peanut butter cups for a top layer and then chopped the rest and put them on top. Drizzle more peanut butter on top if desired. Serve, enjoy!

What is this godly creation??? Is this the meaning of life???

My boyfriend is in town. We’re staying at a nice hotel, went to the Denver Zoo, and today we went to Voodoo Donuts!

Best. Donuts. Ever!




Ol’ Dirty Bastard

Legit my fav donut from voodoo. Maple bacon is a close second.

Pretty sure I’m going to make my sisters wait in line with me at the Denver location this weekend!

Hmmm…may consider going there tomorrow when I go up to Denver!

What I am making for dinner tonight: Enchilada Lasagna

I made this once before at our old house and it was DELICIOUS. I had completely forgotten about it until Patrick found a folder of recipes in our desk the other day! I literally can not wait to make it again. Come on 5:00!

I normally don’t reblog recipes and such, but I think I need this in my life. Like..right now.

Look I made super vegetable-y spaghetti. Whole grain spaghetti, zucchini, red and yellow onions, tomatoes, spinach, kale, dandelion greens, eggplant, and mushrooms, all with Muir Glen organic mushroom spaghetti sauce!  :)

So there wasn’t anything made for dinner when I went home, so I hastily put together this! We had leftover brown rice and garbanzo beans, so I threw in a few handfuls of my “superfood” greens (it’s what the container said!), and cooked up some asparagus! All the greens!

Say hello to probably what will be one of my favorite foods ever.

There’s this recipe from the Forks Over Knives book that had spinach and sweet potato, I didn’t bother looking it up but decided to try a version of that, I cut up sweet potato, used my spiralizer thing to make zucchini spaghetti and put in some spinach and cooked it all in coconut oil. Love it!

With all my changes in diet and attempts to learn to try and make more food, I had to set aside my own areas in my family’s kitchen cabinets and the downstairs fridge to accommodate everything. Like, everything but the tea and ham in the fridge is mine. Having all the greens!!

Also, for the longest time I’d been saving my old peanut butter and coconut oil jars with no purpose for them, but I finally discovered their use! For the bulk foods I get in baggies at the store! I’m brilliant! :)

Also my mom is trying to cook healthier (and vegan) so she made this three bean chili with brown rice and instead of just eating it like that I decided I needed vegetables so I added a big handle of arugula and cut up a tomato to have with it too.

I was on point with my food today, it was so good and I was always satisfied and the whole day I ate vegan!
