Ambassador Spotlight: Crystal Honeycutt/Train Dirty Fitness
What can I say about Crystal Honeycutt?
First of all, I have to give her credit for giving me the idea to have an ambassador program. I really wanted to find a way to get more women involved in the mission of The Sweaty Betties and share their stories and my ambassadors make me so proud.
Crystal has quite a story and if you’re lucky enough to know her, you instantly love her.
She is a booty poppin’ Southern Belle who tells it like it is and has a 100 lb. weight-loss story—> sweet southern charm with a little sass!!
Crystal is the owner of Train Dirty Fitness and she and I actually run online group weight-loss coaching together (which will start again in the fall)
Recently Crystal hosted the very first Train Dirty Fitness and Sweaty Betties Bootcamp certification, so now other fitness instructors can be certified to teach her methods.

Egg Whites & Ezekiel French Toast
I have mentioned many times that I am not a cook.
I actually ate virtually the SAME breakfast (oatmeal and egg whites) everyday for over 7 years.
Then… all of the sudden…. I just couldn’t do it anymore.
So lately, I’ve been looking for other ways to have a protein and slow-digesting-carb breakfast that I enjoy.
Protein Pancakes are great, but honestly, I really suck at pancakes (burned, crumbled, flat, you name it!!)
I was sent a few loaves of Food for Life’s Ezekiel 4:9® Sprouted Flax Bread and I wasn’t really sure what I could do with it, I mean, besides making toast.
Toast is just so dry and I don’t have any butter, so that was no fun… but wait!!
What about FRENCH TOAST?!?!?!
Ding Ding Ding!!
OK this could either be AMAZING or it could be a disaster….
Luckily, it was pretty damn good if I do say so myself!!
So, if you’ve ever tried Ezekiel Bread before, you will know it can be a little dry. It tastes much better toasted, because its dense. Well, I was worried that the french toast would be the same.
So, instead of real eggs, I used Egg Whites International liquid egg whites.
I have been using Egg Whites International since 2005 when I first saw their booth at the Olympia. They ARE real egg whites, but they have been filtered so there is no slimy texture, this made it so the egg whites just SOAKED into the bread, instead of just coating the outside like normal egg whites… THIS, it turns out, was the key!!
Here is all you need:
2 slices of Ezekiel 4:9® Sprouted Flax Bread
1/2c. Egg Whites International (or store bought) liquid egg whites
1 tbsp. coconut oil (for the pan)
Honey, real maple syrup, berries, etc. for topping (I used honey)
Cut the Ezekiel bread in thirds to make French Toast “sticks”
Poured about 1/2 c. of egg whites into a bowl
Dip the bread into the bowl but make sure the egg whites saturate the sticks (not to the point of being soggy, but fully saturated)
Heat a tbsp. of olive oil in a pan and place pieces of bread in the pan (on med-high) for about 2 minutes.
When the back side is browned, flip over and cook the other side..
VOILA!! CLEAN & LEAN French Toast
I dipped mine in honey and it was amazing! Because of the egg whites the toast was actually much less dense and tasted more like real bread. I really enjoyed it!

The Witch is Dead– SB Workout #22
Sweat is My Make-up Upper Body Quick Blast
only have 20 mins at the gym? Need a quickie workout– two sets of exercises, 3 rounds of each and done. This is great for toning, fat-burning, and metabolism bursting while short on time!
You can add some extra cardio if you please, but at least you’ll feel like you got something done. I did this on Sunday and I’m actually sore!

What to eat while you’re traveling and Premier Protein Review
I have been on the road for over 2 weeks and I realized the importance of bringing your own food or having some quick and easy snacks while you’re out and about.
Of course, whole foods are your best option, but sometimes those go bad or just aren’t available. I love to have a few protein bars on hand and Premier Protein in one brand that I like!
They asked me to do a review, and I gladly accepted, as I have been using their products for at least 6 years now.
So here’s how I use them and keep an eye out for a contest next week to WIN!!!
Full Body Blaster – SB Workout #19
This is what my husband and I always call “our” 20 minute workout.
We made this one up a few years back, and whenever we want to do a quick, intense workout, or just something different for cardio, we fall back on this routine.
We both haven’t worked out doing this kind of thing in awhile and we haven’t worked out with EACH OTHER in… well..
MONTHS. If not, over a year. So, we decided to do “our” workout, but instead of doing AMRAP (as many rounds as possible)
we decided to just do 3 rounds, however long that would take, with as many breaks as we needed.
WHOA! I don’t remember it being so hard! I guess it really has been a long time!!
I’m not sure how long it took us to complete 3 rounds, but the rests were minimal. Basically didn’t rest until the end of each time through. My buns are killing me already, my quads and calves are feeling it… well.. just about everything is.
Here’s the routine and the weights I used are listed below:
– For Kettlebells- I used 25 lbs. Husband used 35 lbs
-Push-ups, I ended up dropping to my knees and did about 20 each time, Hubby did 20-35
-Mountain Climbers– count right & left as ONE
– Body Rows– I eeked out 15 each time on a TRX
-Step- ups I did on a 20′ Plyo Box Hubby used a 24″ box— no weight
–Push-Press I used 20 lb dumbbells and a 40 lb Barbell (a lady stole my DB’s halfway through) Hubby used 35 lb DB’s
– Jump Lunges 12 on each leg. The goal was to do all 24 in a row… never happened.. ha! two sets of 12 for me!!
Tell me how you do!
