Taking on Week 3 >>BB4

IMG_6882

Time to take on week 3 of Tone It Up Beach Babe 4!

Starting the day with the TIU Rock Your Body workout and the TIU Booty Call (20 minute or longer run, HIIT workout, or class).  I chose one of my HIIT workouts, this morning.

During TIU you learn the importance of 5 meals a day.

M1 – Meta D or Bombshell spell  with egg and some fruit or a Perfect Fit Pancake and some TIU approved coffee or Perfect Fit Awaken Tea. (Black coffee for me is a must!…lately I have been all about the cold brew)

M2 – Mid morning snack. I enjoy making smoothies or if I’m running a bit late in the morning I just grab a piece of fruit.

M3 – Healthy lunch of lean protein and complex carbs with fruit and veggies on the side.

M4 – For my afternoon snack lately I have been obsessed with hummus. I love all the flavors with pretty much any veggie.

M5 – A lean protein with unlimited green veggies and a touch of healthy fats while limiting starches.

Post M5 I enjoy a cup of tea or Perfect Fit Unwind Tea with an occasional splash of warm almond/cashew milk.

As always, before bed, unwinding with yoga is perfect for a great night’s rest. Stay tuned for my 10 favorite yoga poses to do before bed!

So far going on week three of my TIU journey I am highly satisfied! I love the way I feel and I have already seen a difference!

Enjoy the rest of your day!

A Thursday Positive : Heartbeat

Happy Thursday!!

I figured I’d start this gorgeous day off with a positive vibe!

 

HEARTBEAT

“Your heart is as wide open as a dance club on a Saturday night. Remember that old expression your parents used: I love you to the moon and back ? That’s how you feel about everyone. Enjoy this blissful state of love, sweet love. More is coming, too.”

  • The Oracle of E cards (Pam Grout & Colette Baron-Reid)

 

This couldn’t be any more on point… It’s totally me! I have been told so many times “you’re too nice” (to the people who don’t give it in return) and maybe that’s true. I used to hate hearing it over and over and then get walked all over. Through the years I have come to realize there is a happy medium. It is OK to love and forgive but also, it’s not OK to let others hurt you. You are not a human punching bag…and you will not keep letting other’s burn you. You just have to learn from it, remember how it makes you feel and move forward with the biggest heart and a shield on the side 🙂 Why should I change who I am because of another person’s negativity?? DON’T! Stay strong and be you! That’s what’s beautiful. AND DO SOME YOGA!
