Zucchini noodles with marinara & meatballs

My fitness Adventure has been on a up and down and as with a lot of you out there, it has been a struggle at times.
One of my struggles is having someone to workout with and it had me in a lil depressed and feeling slumped.  I see many having fun and working out with a friend but none of my friends are into fitness or wanting to try it.

How do I get out of this slump?

I started thinking about why I got into this  from day one and how I have been dealing with living healthier and it didn't matter anymore about having someone to workout with.  I started this with intentions of making my life healthier, live better and feel stronger.  The people I workout with in bootcamp make it worth going and my trainer has been behind me since day one. So things are starting to look up once again.

One of my son's is into fitness and trying to eat healthier so I thought why not try something with him.  Although he is doesn't live close to me to hit the gym together we can at least eat healthier together.  We are starting a low carb diet (yes, once again for me!) and the loser will by the other dinner.
I have been looking online for some new recipes to try.  He is very excited to start this with me and I can't wait to see how this adventure will go with him.

Here is something I whipped up last night for dinner.

Zucchini noodles, veggies with meatball marinara-

I don't have one of those fancy noodle machines so I had to do my zucchini by hand using a peeler and cutting it to make strings. Took a bit to do but it was worth the hard work.

I sauteed it in olive oil on med heat for 5-6 mins.

After I sauteed the noodles I sauteed mushrooms in olive oil for 5-7 mins sprinkled with salt (add more olive oil if needed) then added spinach for another min. DONE!
I used my mother in laws (she won't allow anyone to have her recipe other than family, sorry) marinara and meatball recipe. Topped with parm and a few dashes of dried chile pepper. YUM!!!

What are some of you favorite low carb dishes you enjoy? Do you feel slumped at times? if so, what do you do to get out of it? 

Here is to a positive/healthy week!
