In a mad dash out the door this morning on the way to my hair appointment, I threw together this delicious waffle raspberry combo! I was so thankful that I made extra protein waffles last week and froze them!
Having some extra pre-prepared meals on hand definitely comes in handy with a busy schedule. If it wasn’t for my excess of protein waffles, I would have only had a fruit smoothie for breakfast.
My metabolism is too high to survive off of a fruit smoothie for more then a couple hours, so this protein waffle was really a life saver!
This is an AWESOME little chart I found on Miramountlifestyle.com.
If you do nothing else productive today, take a good long look at this chart.
GET EDUCATED ON WHAT GOES IN YOUR BODY!
Those nutrition labels aren’t there to look pretty.
…I’M BOUNCING OFF THE WALLS!
After being addicted to caffeine for so long, and then giving it up cold turkey all at once- I decided to have a Caramel Macchiato today at Starbucks (as I type this post).
OH MY GOSH I can feel my blood sugar rising, I’m typing at 84987249874985 words a minute, and I feel like I have so much energy I could do a few laps of Kart Wheels around San Diego!
Not going to lie though, on top of that I feel really shaky and can kind of feel a head ache coming on.
Tomorrow, I’m anxious to see if I wake up craving caffeine since I had coffee today, or if I’ll wake up and not crave it at all. If I don’t crave it tomorrow, that means I’ll officially be over my caffeine addiction, which will be a BIG deal for me.
For now, off to do some Kart Wheels and Super-Speed-Blogging hahaha
Has anyone else struggled with caffeine?
As a huge fan of the office, I couldn’t go another minute without posting Dwight’s huge face on my health blog!
Lifting weights is NOT going to make you huge ladies. This is a common misconception that I get asked about quite often. If you’re on a bad diet, and you just can’t seem to keep your hands off Mr. Ben and Mr. Jerry (if you know what I mean *ehem ICECREAM ehem**.
If you balance out a healthy diet (with protein/fruits/veggies) with a solid workout plan, you’ll EARN your way to the body of your dreams! Lifting weights is NOT going to make you big, but lifting weights without training might. If you’re really worries about this, please message me and we’ll go over your exercise routine together. A good cardio mix with strengthening exercises and weights will actually lean you out.
Whats the worst that can happen? You might just end up with a fabulously it body. Oops 🙂
Good form is SO important when you’re doing push ups. Doing them the wrong way will minimize the effect of the exercise, not to mention potentially strain your neck and wrists.
If I can do these push ups in heels and a dress, you can do them in a sports bra and sneakers!
- Don’t stick your butt up in the air
- Don’t put your hands too close together
- Don’t strain your neck by trying to look at your toes
- Don’t forget to breathe between each push up
- Do Have a flat back
- Do look a little bit in front of you
- Do put your hands chest length apart
- Do put your elbows at 90 degrees
- Do always keep your arms over your wrist
Notice how my butt isn’t sticking up, and my elbows are over my wrists!
These may seem like a lot of steps now, but if you keep practicing the right way to do push ups it will get you to your goal body WAY quicker- and without damaging your precious self.
Jillian Michaels is hands down my #1 fitness idol. I wish she would personally come over to my house every morning and yell at me to get out of bed and start doing my daily workouts!
I’m going to get through her 90 day challenge BOODY REVOLUTION workout video series, even if it kills me.
Dear Fat, prepare for me to BURN you. Love, Brittany and Jillian! Day 36 COMPLETE!
