Reading has always been a passion of mine and I’m so thankful for it. No matter what emotion I’m feeling I can always turn to book. My goal each year is to read 52 books, I’m aiming for higher this year but I don’t know if I could get 60 or not. I mean, I’m sure I could if I put my mind to it, here’s how!
Well, I officially have 4 months before the wedding and I am starting to get into the zone on my nutrition. Over the course of the last 6 months I have been working on increasing my calories to build up my metabolism and put on a good amount of muscle. Now over the course of the next 4 months I will be working in the opposite direction to slim down!
I am a huge breakfast girl! It is my favorite meal of the day and I keep it really simple because nobody has time for an extravagant meal first thing in the morning. However, quick things for breakfast can be hard when you are trying to get in a good amount of protein. Unless you’re adding protein powder to smoothies, yogurt, or in your milk for your cereal, you’re probably getting in a decent amount of carbs and fats with not as much protein. Making it harder for your end of day goals to be hit.
I definitely played into the belief that the only thing that mattered in my nutrition was the macros on the nutrition. I literally wouldn’t care about how many ingredients or what those ingredients were, where the food came from, etc. Until I started to feel bloated, tired, more anxious, and wasn’t seeing results like before. So, this summer I have dedicated it to my own health, not my physical body!
There are many variations of ab exercises you can do to continue to build a strong core. Having a strong core is going to be more useful than simply looking jacked and having a 6 pack. It increases stability, performance, balance, decreases chance of injury, and helps improve strength in all other exercises or cardio.
I am usually rushing out of the house in the mornings and this high protein breakfast is one of my go-to’s. It is so easy to put together and tastes delicious! Add your favorite toppings just like you would a pancake.
My next big home project is re-doing my home office. I got it all painted but now I have a ton of mix-matched furniture and decorations that just need to be updated. It’s like things from my parents house I took back, stuff from college, and other things from all over the place I’ve collected. So, we need some updates and I’m trying to do it as cheap as possible!
