HAPPY MONDAY!!!! Here is your new 3 min Turbo Pilates BUTT WORKOUT!!
This week, I want you to focus on a non-weight related fitness goal. And a very specific one too. I want you to commit yourself to a goal like:
“I will work out for 30 min at least 3 times this week.”
“I will eat vegetables with EVERY meal this week.”
“I will do at least 1 Blogilates video, even if it’s the short 3 min one, every day this week.”
The reason why I want you to DEFOCUS yourself from saying “I want to lose 2 lbs this week” is because I don’t want you to get so hung over the most stressful part of the fitness journey. Losing weight is not fun. And some weeks you will be doing everything right and the scale will not budge. In fact, it may go up! That’s frustrating. I want you to know that the work you put in counts, and it counts as long as you’re not cheating and you’re sticking to a plan. I want you to concentrate on the action of getting there…not what happens when you get there. You will be so much happier and so much less stressed. Also, your fit body will fall into place. I promise. I want you to comment below and tell me what your specific goal is. That’s your first task 🙂 NOW!! I have a new #CHEAPCLEANEATS episode for you! Yay I am on a rolllll woohooooo!
COTTON CANDY GRAPES
These are grapes that are grown to taste like cotton candy! Once you bite into it, you will die of amazement! It messes with you so bad because the taste is SOOO unexpected! Go find some at your local grocery store. I have seen these at Whole Foods and Trader Joes.
2 TBS nut butter
1 whole wheat or low carb tortilla
Directions: Slather peanut butter or your fave nut butter on your tortilla. Then roll up your peeled banana! Slice up into 8 pieces. It’s PERFECT!
DONUT APPLE RINGS
1 fuji apple
2 TBS of nut butter
2 TBS dried cranberries
2 TBS of pistachios
Directions: Slice your apple into thin rings. De-core the center so that you don’t have seeds. Spread peanut butter or your fave nut butter on each slice. Them top with dried fruit and nuts. If you want, granola is also a great option here!
YOGURT DIPPED BLUEBERRIES
1 small package of fresh blueberries
1/2 C of honey greek yogurt or coconut yogurt
Directions: Dip your blueberries into the yogurt. Then once all covered, one by one, place them on a plate with parchment paper. Make sure they are not sticking together. Then freeze them for a few hours or until hardened.
Hope you try these snacks guys! They are soooooo good! If you make em, be sure to tag me in your pics so I can see! Also, don’t forget to tell me your specific non weight related fitness goal this week in the comments.
