Easter Egg Candy Alternatives
5 Minute Core Workout [You Can Do Anywhere]
Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE to celebrate! Whether cheering on client wins or preparing for the next holiday, I find so much joy in celebration. Easter is no exception - and yes, as a believer, I do mean ALL of Easter - our family celebrates the resurrection of Jesus.
We also celebrate this time along with family traditions of Easter baskets, an Easter egg hunt and a family dinner — this is part of what I want to share with you today!
Pretty In Pink Protein Smoothie
Everyone loves a good core workout, right? Even better, one you can complete in as little as 5 minutes. I’m all about efficiency these days, and this quick workout gets the job done.
I really recognized the importance of core strength after having kids, as I talked about in my Workout Like A Mother blog post. I will spare you all the details again, but I had to take some major time to really focus on core strength.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie
What better way to celebrate spring than with a pretty, pink protein smoothie!? It’s time to get out of the humdrum winter, and bring on the FIERCE COLOR!
If you happened to catch my last live facebook video, I talked about how I absolutely love the Organic Dragon Fruit frozen fruit mix from Costco. It’s not often you find a fresh exotic fruit like dragon fruit at your regular grocer… or at least not here in Utah.
Peanut Butter Protein Balls
If you are a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup fan, raise your hand.
Both hands in the air, waving around like you just don’t care!
YES! You may have been noticing a bit of a posting trend - give me alllll the chocolate peanut butter treats.
The good news, there are ways to crush that craving without feeling so dang guilty. A healthy way to enjoy a sweet treat, hello, Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie!
Peachy Green Smoothie
I don’t know about you, but fast, quick, and easy (and healthy, of course) are qualities I like in a good snack.
In my humble opinion, if you like peanut butter, you can’t go wrong with peanut butter protein balls! You have the peanut butter goodness that will crush even the biggest peanut butter pie fan’s cravings (and I do believe I could claim this title). Add a healthy boost of protein this deliciousness and you’ll be on your way to healthy snacking in hurry.
30-Min Rowing Workout
I’m not going to lie, I’ve been trying to add (hide) all types of different greens (kale, peas, and even broccoli… what was I thinking!?) in smoothies for a while now…and hands-down, spinach is my go-to due to it’s awesome nutrition AND it’s “hideability.”
Purple Power: Mixed Berry Smoothie
Back in my wrestling days, there were two pieces of equipment I relied on daily while I was cutting weight. I will list these in order of least level of endearment: the Stairmaster aka the stair-stepper-to-hell and the Airdyne aka the-bike-to-nowhere.
Perk Me Up - Coffee Smoothie + Protein
This boy and his momma LOVE us some smoothies — not only do I love smoothies, I really look forward to spending this time with my oldest son (Big E). It’s almost like ‘our thing’ where we get to laugh, we joke, and we get to work together to create something that is both delicious AND healthy!
10 Minutes: Workout Like A Mother
Oh yes, do I know that feeling…and also the feeling of that cup (or three) of coffee being the main source of energy for what seems like the majority of the day at times.
This, we know, is not great nutrition. Surviving on coffee alone is not going to keep us going forever - although, sometimes it feels like it just, might, possibly do so.
Healthy Shamrock Shake
Another 10 minutes, another workout, right?! Oh yeah! Stepping it up from the 10-minute Post-baby Workout, this workout incorporates a little more core work!
10-minute Post-Baby Workout
That’s right, it’s that time of year again, the Shamrock Shake makes its way back into the Double Arches for a limited time. I can’t tell you how excited I used to be for the announcement to be made and I’d be able to roll through the drive-thru and pick up one of my most coveted treats.
Welcome to Jets & Supersets!
As a mom of a 2-month-old and 2.5 year old; between the kiddos, work, getting ready to move, holding things together on the home front and all the other hats being worn – or worn out at this point, let’s just be honest…
Well, somehow you managed to find yourself here, on my very first blog post… so, WELCOME!
Where to begin, where to begin… like most decent people, I should probably start by introducing myself. Here’s the 4-1-1 on who I am and why I decided to leap into the blogosphere!
