This quarantine seriously KILLED my diet and exercise routine! We haven’t been able to go to the gym and I’ve not been able to stop overeating. I had a healthy run in the beginning of February and March, but once the safer at home act was announced, I broke all the way down…literally. I miss my healthy fitness routine and my mesomorph body type can’t really hang with sitting around on the couch. Crossing my fingers for a better outcome next fitness weight loss update.

Eating anything under 300 calories during Thanksgiving, that isn’t plain lettuce, seems impossible. Especially at holiday gatherings where taste, not health, seems to win the day. That’s why I’ve put together two healthy snacks under 300 calories that are perfect to bring to parties. They are meatless, affordable, healthy, and easy to make. Between these two dishes, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Staying motivated to go to the gym anytime past March of a new year is one of the most common struggles amongst those of us on a fitness journey. Trust me, there are many times when I don’t feel like getting out of bed and I have to force myself to get moving or I’ll simply fall back asleep.
Keeping this in mind, I began to reflect on the simple things I do that keep me motivated and in the game so that I can see results as quickly as possible. Besides watching tons of motivational fitness videos on YouTube or scrolling through Instagram, there are a few tools I use that keep my head in the game.
For a very long time I’ve felt ashamed of my athletic body type. I build muscle very easily, have always had bigger arms, shoulders, and calves than any of my female friends. I struggled finding my personal style in a sea of photos with beautiful petite and curvier women. Fitness pages give me inspiration, but I see a void in how to style that body type beyond workout clothing.
GREEN PROTEIN SMOOTHIE
Okay, I’m going to be honest with you. When you are just beginning or getting back in your groove, workouts SUCK. But beyond working out, keeping track of what I consume sucks even more. I know the benefits and I always feel better, but refusing that delicious piece of cheesecake hurts almost every time.
Okay, I got off track. Before or after my “glorious” workouts, I drink protein smoothies. Why? Long story short, they fill you up fast and help build muscle. Sexy.
2 cups spinach
2 cups coconut milk
1 cup of lite vanilla greek yogurt
2 cups frozen berry mix (strawberry, raspberry, blueberry)
2 tablespoons almond butter
First, put the coconut milk and spinach in the blender. Blend. Blending greens first helps blend them smoother getting rid of any gritty texture. Next, add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth. Add Ice if your berries aren’t frozen.
