Week 1: Bikini Series

Hello lovelies! I have started the Tone It Up Bikini Series last week. I was super excited and motivated to begin it. However, after my morning workout I pulled a muscle in my back or shoulder that made just every day things difficult. Since I knew it would be a couple of days before I could do anything with my arms, I tried to focus on what I was eating. Of course life got in the way and my eating wasn’t exactly on par. I did manage to not over eat and watch my portions. I was hoping to have more of a successful week, but there is time to be better and work towards a healthier lifestyle.

Have a great week and see you in my next post!

I’m Late!, What’s for Breakfast?

Hello! I don’t know about you but do you have those mornings when you sleep through your alarm? Or there are those mornings when you just aren’t that hungry but you know you should have something? Well this is what I’ve done the last couple of weeks and it does hold me pretty well. If I have time to actually make myself some breakfast, I’ll eat my breakfast and make this into a to-go cup and bring it to work with me as a snack.

I want to preface this by saying the protein powder I’m currently using is one that has been at my house for awhile and I do not want to waste it. It is also better suited for after a workout rather than a first thing in a morning filler. This is also a little bit of a better option for those morning chocolate cravings.

I pour into the blender 1 cup of chocolate almond milk and 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder. Blend for about a minute, and it’s done! The texture is almost that of melted chocolate ice cream or a melted Wendy’s frosty, but frothy.

If you have any suggestions for a good and healthy protein powder, that tastes good, let me know! I’m not asking for too much, am I? I know it is a little different from what I have been posting. If you want more of these types of posts, let me know. Have a great hump day and see you all in my next post!
