8/19 7 Strategies to Feel Like aSuperhero Anytime: Motivational Mondays I heard from my good friend J today that she was really struggling with some things in her life. She wrote to say, “Honestly I’m not doing too well right now. I’m super stressed and overwhelmed….and broke. I’ll be fine. It’s just tough right now. There are so many things to get done and figure out how to do. I’m working through it…but the past few days I have not been working through it gracefully, that’s for sure.” Life is so hard sometimes. This is what friends are for, and what I’m here for. You are never alone. Know that everyone, including me feels like this.
8/16 Gluten Free Berry Protein Pancakes I always try to make time to cook pancakes or French Toast on the weekend, because I have more time in the morning. This weekend I turned on one of my favorite podcasts and puttered around the kitchen in my PJ’s putting this deliciousness together.
I absolutely love the texture of these pancakes, they hold together beautifully and have a light, mild flavor.I’ve added some easy modifications for you in case you’d like to leave out the dairy (can be easily done), or leave out the protein powder.
8/13 Chest and Shoulders Exercises to Do at Home I recently got a request for a workout that targets the chest and shoulders from a reader named Cinda.
In response, I put together a few sequences for the chest, shoulders and delts that you can do as a complete set or break off and incorporate into other workouts.
This sequence will also work your core and triceps, and I recommend combining it with the back strengthening circuit for a great upper body workout.
8/6 12-Minute Full Body Sculpt Home Workout YOU can do this workout absolutely anywhere - including your living room – I happened to be up in the Flatirons in Boulder, Colorado on a hike and had to take advantage of the landscape! You can modify this workout easily in several ways – use the notes below the video for alternate moves and form tips to help you get the most out of this short, fast workout.
It takes 12 minutes if you do each move for 30 seconds and go through 3 rounds.
7/28 F*%$ Self Doubt: Motivational Mondays You wouldn’t know it if you talked to me or just watched my videos, but I deal with my own head just as much as anybody else. The bigger my dreams get, the bigger my fears want to get. I doubt my abilities, my worth and my strength – sometimes often. I know I talk a lot of motivation, but did you ever wonder how I know what needs to be said?
Most of the time it’s because that’s what I had to say to myself to get over a hurdle or figure out how to deal with a problem I was having!
7/27 Gluten-free, Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies This Saturday, I was CRAVING some cookies!
I’ve been wanting to try the whole “chickpea” cookie thing because the pictures of them are just awesome, but I really can’t stand the smell of garbanzo bean flour and I’ve also read that you can’t eat the chickpea cookies cold.
The gluten free flourless chocolate cupcakes I made in another post came out really well, and not having a bunch of flour makes assembly super easy.
7/10 Chocolate Stuffed Raspberries Raspberries and chocolate were made for each other. I was actually unpacking my kitchen and spilled a bunch of cacao nibs on the counter – right next to the raspberries I had just gotten. Oh, happy accident! I started stuffing cacao nibs inside of the raspberries because they looked like just the right size, and I have to say you’re lucky I stopped to take a picture because these suckers are so good, they go down fast!
I was completely entranced with how the sweetness of the raspberries was just enough to make that raw, unsweetened chocolate really taste extra chocolatey, and the combination of textures was just awesome.
