This homemade açaí bowl is packed with nutrients from wild blueberries, açaí, and protein. Enjoy one as a cool down post-workout, or as a healthy afternoon snack!
I’ve been back in the gym for two days.
You don’t need a knee for upper body, bro!
I’m trying really hard to make sure I get allllll the protein to make sure I don’t lose a ton of muscle mass with this injury. So there have been a lot of shakes happening. Today’s is a little Easter-themed! In a #strangebutgood way, obv.
The family workouts continue!
There’s something especially satisfying about making your loved ones hurt.
We’re wrapping up some loose ends this week in Atlanta. I’m still enjoying my time at home and loving mom’s new digs.
We had a fun workout yesterday in her gym. She said I worked her harder than any of the trainers she’s worked with. Mwhahahah! Here’s what we did:
You know it’s hot when your shoulders sweat.
At least I wipe off my bench at the gym!
If I do cardio, I prefer to do it after I lift so I don’t get too tired. The problem is that it’s a 10 minute jog to the gym, so I feel like I should just add on another 20 and be done with it. Yesterday was one of those days. By the time I arrived at the gym I was burning up and covered in sweat.
Lifting after that was hard at first, but I got into the groove. I felt bad about being so sweaty in the weight section, but hey… it IS a gym. And I am a good citizen of the gym world – I always use the stray to clean off my sweat puddles.
Unlike some other people.
Normalcy* has returned.
*I use that term loosely.
Vegas and I made it back from Vegas leaving the 115 degree temps behind. The sun is out again in San Diego and it’s a balmy 75 degrees.
Are you pronouncing “açaí” correctly?
Are you pronouncing it at all?
Açaí (ah-sigh-ee) bowls are all the rage in California. And with good reason – they are delicious! They’re also $13.
All good things must come to an end.
Until I figure out a way to live in Europe.
I’m a firm believer in balance and enjoying life. Enjoying is just what we did in Greece. There were tons of good eats, alllll the drinks, and a nice break from the gym (though we walked a LOT). Vegas and I had a blast and soaked up every moment. Coming off of that I have no regrets, but feel ready to get back to a healthier diet.
I always look forward to spring.
Except the pollen. Who knew San Diego had pollen?!
Spring food is the best. Don’t get me wrong, I love a roasted winter squash and the orange glow that comes with it. The lighter, fresh spring fare has my heart though.
Today’s #strangebutgood is a round up of some of my favorite spring recipes. Some stranger than others. All good.
In my not-so-humble opinion.
I love me some protein.
I also love cookies. If you can combine protein and cookies, you have a winner. When Isopure sent over their cookies & cream zero carb powder with 50 grams of 100% pure whey protein isolate I couldn’t try it fast enough. It was perfectly timed too – after being on he road for a week I was ready to get back in the gym!
Peanut Butter Yogurt Bowl. Mocha Concrete Protein Shake. Pumpkin Cake Pancakes.
That’s my kind of ménage à trois!
If you’ve been reading my blog for any amount of time, you know I’m a protein powder enthusiast. When About Time sent over a dream team of protein powders for me to try, I jumped at the chance. Birthday cake, peanut butter, cinnamon swirl… I was like a kid in a candy shop.
