YOU GUYS! I have found the most delicious cereal bars! It’s not just any old cereal bar, it’s healthy! Quest Cereal bars are all  packed with 12 grams of protein and they are only 110 calories. Don’t even get me started on how mother lovin delicious they are. I could eat 5 in one siting people. It’s hard to find a protein bar that’s both nutritional and yummy. They also leave a great aftertaste.

Now that i’m back from California, I am back on the gainz train! I need to look rockin for my upcoming trip to Canada in June! I can trust Quest to satisfy my sweet tooth without worrying about what i’m putting into my body. Unlike other cereal bars, Quest has more protein, and way less sugar and carbs. Did I also mention the amazing taste of Quest?! I was able to conveniently purchase the Quest Cereal bars from my local Vitamin Shoppe.

SkinnyMint Teatox

March 9, 2017

20170303_222827

Hey all! I feel like this week has been a breeze! The countdown is on for my trip to San Diego! T-minus 3 days until I am basking in the glorious sun, while lounging on the sandy beaches of Coronado. I wish I could take you all along with me!

My diet this week has been on point! I have gone to the gym everyday, and just about killed myself on the elliptical. Sometimes I wonder how I will possibly accomplish my workout. I then think about myself in a bathing suit, and that gives me all the motivation I need to finish. Haha! I love the concept of believing you can accomplish something, and actually doing it! When someone says “nothing tastes better than skinny”, it’s SO true. I don’t think that statement is saying “if you’re not skinny, you’re not beautiful or good enough.” To me it has a deeper meaning. Their is a certain kind of confidence that comes from living a healthy lifestyle. I have seen many aspects of my life improve by changing my diet, and exercising 5 days a week.

Because I will be traveling a lot this summer, I wanted to do all I could to make sure I looked my best. I got the SkinnyMint Teatox to do a total detox of my bod. It’s a 2 step program that lasts 28 days. Every morning I will drag myself out of my warm bed, put my robe on, and put a cup of water in the micro to get it hot hot hot. I will then put the tea bag in to steep, and get ready for my day while I drink my yummy morning boost . Every other night I will drink the Night cleanse. Let me just tell ya- It will clean you OUT. Lol. I love that the tea tastes fresh and fruity. I look forward to drinking my tea as opposed to dreading the tea everyday. That to me is super important to me. If I am going to spend money on a product, I want to be able to enjoy it.

I love that SkinnyMint is created with all-natural ingredients that actually work to detoxify your body. I have noticed that since starting the Teatox, all of my bloat is gone. I have a flat tummy, and I am so excited to jump into my bathing suit with all the confidence in the world! What a great way to kick off your summer body!

New Year, New Me: From “Diet” to “Live it”

February 20, 2017

Processed with VSCO with e5 preset

Hey Everyone! I apologize for being MIA for the past couple of weeks. I have been really focusing on my goals for this upcoming year, and really committing to achieve them. I made this giant dream board of everything that I want to accomplish. For years- one of my New Years resolutions has been to lose weight and get in shape. Year after year I jump on the wagon and quickly fall off. I go to the gym for a week at a time and I soon get discouraged because my healthy eating soon turns into not so healthy eating. I have tried so many fad diets, trying to get skinny quick. I feel like my weight loss journey has been a giant roller coaster with many loops and bumps.

I have always thought that “going on a diet” or working my Arse off at the gym would change the way I felt and looked. Recently I have had an awakening. What if I tuned my “Diet” into a “Live it” Instead of going back and forth about eating healthy and falling off the gains train over and over again- What If I could completely change my mindset. Getting healthy and in shape is not about what new diet your on, or about how many times you fall and have to get back up. It’s all about changing your lifestyle. I have made an executive decision that I will NO longer be on a diet! I will forever be on a LIVE IT. I am choosing to live a healthy lifestyle so that I can achieve my fitness goals and feel more confidant in my skin. It’s not about how many pounds I can lose in a certain amount of time- to me it’s about the journey. Taking it one day at a time is key. Focusing on the things that I am doing right everyday and working on the things I need to improve on. By choosing to Live it, I am focusing on making healthy lifestyle changes that will LAST.

For the past two weeks I have been so dedicated at going to the gym every morning. I typically don’t go so early, because I have a hard time digesting breakfast in the morning. However- since I started drinking my Vitality Blend, I have so much energy and my stomach doesn’t get upset when I do intense cardio. It’s the perfect breakfast meal replacer because it’s so quick to make and there is NO mess! It also helps your cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar as well.

I have not stepped foot inside a gym for the past year. To say it was intimidating is a huge understatement. It can be difficult to walk into a gym and feel like you don’t belong (even if you totally need to be there lol) I had a hard time feeling comfortable at first because I felt like people were judging me, or thinking that I was not in shape, etc. For all the people who have ever thought this, DON’T!! You can totally do it! Once you have your beats in, walk into that gym and own it! Once you start working out, you will feel so much better and you will be one step closer to making this amazing lifestyle change.

I have THE biggest sweet tooth. I love anything that has sugar in it. One of the hardest things about changing my diet, is not indulging in sweets. I often get tempted with cookies and cake at the store, and all I want to do is say “screw it all” and gorg on everything I can get my hands on! However- that would leave me feeling awful and in the end wouldn’t be worth it.

Lately I have found something that completely satisfies my sweet tooth, while providing nutrients and protein to my body. Viance Brownie Bites are only 100 calories but taste like they are from the heavens! They are so chewy and have little chucks of chocolate throughout. It is the perfect snack to hold me over until my next meal.

I am grateful for companies that I can count on to help me with my lifestyle changes. I am excited for the journey ahead in becoming healthier and becoming more fit.

Viance will be offering a 50% off discount for first time subscription buyers of Vitality Blend and Brownie Bites.

Feeling Fit

November 9, 2016

I love working out and feeling healthy. However- when I fall off the wagon it’s SO hard to get back on. One of the things I love most about Pulsebandz, is how this simple fit watch can motivate me to be and do better! It tracks my heart rate, the amount of steps I take, the calories I burn, and the list goes on and ON! Another awesome thing about this company is how they give 5% of their profit to organizations around the world! I think it shows a lot about a company’s character if their willing to give back to those in need.
