Paleo Pumpkin Protein Bars

Remember those gluten, dairy, and egg free protein bars I posted last week? Well, I decided to play around with different types of flour, and I ended up making a “paleo” version of the protein bars. I mean, I guess if you’re super strict you wouldn’t consider the protein powder paleo, but other than that, they are. Gotta give different options for different dietary needs! I actually think these are my favorite yet. I know I said the other one’s...

Exercise is Meant to Be Enjoyed

There are so many different ways to get active. You can run, lift weights, take exercise classes, do yoga, crossfit, bootcamp, do pilates, go swimming, rollerblading, biking, walking, and so much more. Often times I see people putting down certain ways of exercising. “NO running whatsoever”, “Don’t lift heavy or you’ll get bulky”, “yoga isn’t really exercise”, “walking isn’t intense enough”. So on, and so forth. I cringe when I hear these things. Yes, certain types of exercises should be...

Shoulder, Abs, and Cardio Circuit

So, I totally kicked my own butt this morning. I woke up, decided I wanted to do shoulders and cardio, but I didn’t want to run or anything like that. Ew. Just kidding… I like running.. sometimes. Oh, how times have changed. Anywhooo… I went in and really just winged this workout, but it ended up being freakin awesome. I was out of breath, my heart rate stayed super high the entire time, I felt the weight lifting pump/burn that...

Five Things Friday

Happy Friday, everyone! Music to my ears. I figured I’d link up with five things friday on Clare’s blog, because my mind is always a jumbled mess full of random stuff. Perfect. Five Summer Fashion Ideas: In Florida, it’s basically summer. What is spring? What are seasons? No idea.   source   source   source source   source Five Hairstyles: Five Things to Make you Laugh: Five Sources of Inspiration: Five Posts I Loved: Is Food Just Fuel – The...

WIAW – 1

Well, well, well, it’s been quite a while since I’ve done a what I ate Wednesday post! Isn’t it weird how intriguing it is to look at what other people eat? I mean, maybe I’m just a weirdo stalker, but  I dig it. Or maybe I’m just a foodie. Yeah, lets go with the second one. Of course, link up with Jen to join in on the partayyyy. These are some meals I’ve actually felt like photographing and don’t look like...

Gluten, Dairy, and Egg Free Pumpkin Protein Bars

Soooo, pretty sure I’ve covered all the bases of what these bars can be free of. Although they are free of some of the main allergens, they certainly aren’t free of taste. That’s all that matters, right? Yes. I make protein bars every week as part of my food prep, and I’ve always been interested to try one without eggs. Variety is the spice of life, but I was always too scared though because seriously, wtf do you use in place...

Bi’s and Tri’s No Rest Workout

I don’t think I’ve ever walked out of the gym not drenched in sweat. I literally sweat like an 800 lb man wearing 7 layers in the desert. Yeah.. So hot, I know. I worked bis, tris and abs today.. Figured I’d give a sample workout of how I train – I literally never rest. I’m always doing abs or plyos or some sort of active rest in between my sets for about 30 seconds. I still lift heavy, I just...
