🔺Just be there🔺 I normally don't workout on Sundays, but today was an exception. When one of your best friends is going through something terrible and you don't know exactly how to help, you just... be there. And she was wanting to hit the gym today so I said I would join. Just some girl time working up a lil sweat on the treadmill 👭😅 No requirements to talk about feelings or details or what ifs... Just plain ole girl time. Together time. BFF time. . . .
Of course the first day in a wk I wanna go for a run there's 35 mph winds. Of cooouuurrrse. Oh well. I got to wear my Houston finished shirt, and it's hard to see but it has a cute outline of the course. One of the few finisher shirts I actually like. So that's a win! #runner#nikeplus
It happens. Energy isn't there, your head isn't into it, your routine has gotten stale, you didn't eat right that day...whatever it is, it's OKAY. Life goes on, wake up tomorrow, and take another swing. This is a marathon, not a sprint.
Had a great weekend in Portland!! Vacation doesn't need to be all maxin and relaxin! Stayed active with lots of walking and hiking at Multnomah Falls. Wish I could stay longer but the gym calls and there are gainz to be made!👊🏼🤘🏼😈 📷: @amigorojas
❗️PLEASE READ❗️ ___________________________________________________ I cannot reiterate how important it is to stretch. However, making it the first thing that you do is not. When you stretch cold muscles, you can damage them. The best thing to do is a short warm up first, followed by your stretching and then your main workout. I leave my stretching for after my workout. When lifting heavy, do not hold your stretch for more than 10seconds. When you don't lift heavy you can go longer. But whatever you do, make sure you DO stretch. ___________________________________________________ ❗️POR FAVOR LEA❗️ - ----- No puedo reiterar lo importante que es estirar. Sin embargo, hacerlo lo primero que haces no lo es. Cuando estira los músculos fríos, puede dañarlos. La mejor es hacer es un calentamiento corto primero, seguido por su estiramiento y después su entrenamiento principal. Yo dejo mi estiramiento para después de mi entrenamiento. Al levantar pesado, no sostenga su estiramiento por más de 10seconds. Cuando usted no levanta pesado puede ir más tiempo. Pero hagas lo que hagas, asegúrate de que te estiras. - ---- #stretching
🍌Banana Protein Muffins 🍌 . I found this (hopefully) amazing recipe for breakfast muffins! 😁 It was extremely simple which I love because I usually spend a few hours meal prepping on Sundays. Anything to cut down that time is a blessing! 🙏🏼 Breakfast is always something I struggle with because I'm not a big egg person... these at least don't have eggs as the main ingredient. The original recipe didn't have chocolate chips but I couldn't resist 😋 . Chocolate Protein Powder 🍫 • Bananas 🍌 • Eggs 🥚 • Honey 🍯 • Baking Powder • Baking Sugar • Cinnamon
Soooooooooo I'm obsessed with Mac N Cheese 😋🧀 BUT we all know it's not the healthiest of foods. I've tried so many vegan Mac N Cheese recipes but they never really hit the spot, ya know? Well...I finally found THE BEST way to make a 100% vegan and gluten free Mac that will rock your world 🎤🌎 It is SO creamy and cheesy thanks to the amazing @heidihoorganics vegetable and chia seed cheese sauce. I add @daiyafoods melty cheese shreds to really pump up the creaminess factor. This dish is to die for 😵You can use quinoa noodles for a #gluten free version, or regular noodles if you prefer. Pics of the final product to come!!! #cleaneats#veganmacandcheese#vegan#health#healthylife#lifestyle#fitness#fitstagram#fitfam#bbg#bbgfam#bbgcommunity#bbgla#bbgeats#kaylaitsines

If your workout doesn't make you FEEL GOOD, try a NEW WORKOUT. It is going to take more than motivation to workout if your workouts don't make you feel good. Try new workouts (strength training, boot camps, yoga..), switch up your exercise tools (body weight, free weights, stability ball..), or mix the tempo (switch between reps and intervals). If you need help finding your feel good workouts, message me or leave your email in the comments. - A.
I was gonna say something about how I'm progressing and staying lean despite my flexible eating, but I simply can't get past the fact that me and the tile in the background match and this photo just flows😏

I absolutely love my healthy oats-banana pancakes and make them at least 4 times a week😋. Here's one of my best recipes to share with you guys: You need: * 1 cup Oats (80g) * 1/4 cup Almonds (35g) * 1/2 tsp cinnamon * 1/2 tsp nutmeg * 1/2 tsp baking powder * 1/2 tsp baking soda * 1 medium banana * 1 tsp vanilla * 1 egg * 1/2 cup almond milk Grind up the oats and almonds in a processor. In a bowl mix the processed oats/almonds, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda and baking powder. In another bowl mash the banana. Then whisk with the vanilla, egg, and milk. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients to create the batter. Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat and spray with non-stick spray. Pour batter on the griddle in about quarter cups (I don’t usually measure – this recipe make about 10 cakes) Cook for 3-4 minutes. Flip. Cook for about 2 minutes until set. Enjoy!🥞🍯❤️
