BOOTY TIME

Day 27 already this is going fast. Turning up the intensity on the next phase of working out. Been working out to #80dayobsession and you feel it different muscles every day.

Traveling will not slow me down even if I can’t do the right workouts with schedule I will do something to stay committed. Don’t give up on yourself there is always something you can do walk, cardio, pushups just do it. I’m lucky I have the right products to travel with.

I thought since I work my booty today I would put up a booty workout want to make it more intense put bands around your legs see where mine are. I definitely feel a difference.

 


THIS BAG IS BANANAS

This bag is bananas! Purely Elizabeth has created a great-tasting granola without any grains or oats. Instead each serving features organic fruit puree, superfood seeds, cashew butter, coconut oil, and a touch of vanilla and sea salt. These familiar tasting clusters have no refined sugar and are certified gluten-free, vegan, organic, and non-GMO. I love putting this on top of my delicious Isalean Cookies & Cream shake. This hits the spot plus adding a little banana for good health.

LEG DAY BURN

I love yet hate leg days. It’s always better when it’s over but loving these workouts I feel it all the time. I’ve had more energy and strength lately which I’m loving. I have finally found products that give me energy fill me up and make me feel amazing all day! I was hungry when I got up so I had some of my Protein strawberry muffins when I got up with coffee. Work around for awhile before getting ready to do my workout and decided I really needed to eat before working out not much just something so I could workout for an hour without thinking I’m hungry. So I made 3 medium Low Carb Pancakes. I love all of their products so good and to be able to know what the ingredients are is a win win deal for me. Go over to lakanto.com and put in code healthylifestylede for 20% off. Have a great day!


Party Nuts That Everyone Loves

I’ve learned to love these so easy to make and always a party pleaser. My guests love these and so do I.  Making the whole house smell so good. Sugar free caramelized almonds. When you eat these almonds you feel like you’re cheating but you’re not because they are sugar free. Use the  Classic  for this recipe it’s just like real sugar.

Monk fruit’s mogrosides, the compounds that give it its intense sweetness, are also powerful antioxidants. Oxidative stress plays a part in many diseases and disorders, and choosing high-antioxidant foods is the key to reducing free radical damage in the body. Studies have shown that mogrosides “significantly inhibited reactive oxygen species and DNA oxidative damage” (1, 2). The fact that the same monk fruit ingredients that provide antioxidants also provide a no-calorie sweetener makes it nothing less than a superfood.

FAST OR EAT SOMETHING WHEN YOU GET UP?

So what I have research is that it’s best if you can fast before working out much better for you? So I’ve been trying that which has work but yesterday I decided since I was hungry and time was going by so fast that I was going to have a shake first then workout. It seemed to give me more energy and I wasn’t hungry again till around 1PM. My thoughts are its all up to the individual but to me and always has been breakfast is the most important meal of the day. When you eat within an hour of waking up you’re keeping your blood sugar more level, hormones are balancing out. Using the food for fuel & energy just the right foods to give you energy. Been trying to keep my cortisol balanced out so when you wake up in the morning if you have a lot of energy and feeling good your cortisol is probably up. To keep balanced eat a healthy breakfast first thing in the morning. Everyone is different though what works for me might not work for you, and what works for you might not work for me. Do what works for you.  I like to eat early, wait a little to get it settled and go workout! Midmorning have a shake if I’m hungry. Write things down keep a journal if you don’t know why things are not working out for you.  Below is the workout I did yesterday and felt like I had pretty good energy then and during the day. I have been also trying a new thing where I quit eating around 7PM or earlier. So that gives me 12-13 hours of fasting.

  • By eating breakfast you’re not as hungry later in the day. Hormones are more balanced.
  • Put calories in earlier in the day so you burn them off.
  • Trying to lose body fat when you wake up within an hour eat something even if you’re not hungry. So you don’t get super hungry and regret it.

So the workout was probably hour after I had a shake yesterday.
