Protein Brownies

High protein brownies perfect for any gym junkie.

Happy happy Friday! Let me just fill your feed with a slice of chocolatey deliciousness for a second. I’m going to give you a little bit of a backstory on these brownies. So my neighbor, long time friend, and fellow fitness junkie Libby, also known as @fit_lib on Instagram, posted about these protein brownies back in December. She posted the recipe in January and ever since then, I’ve wanted to try them out.

I finally decided (six months later that is) to drive myself to the store, pick up all of the necessary ingredients, and whip up a batch of these bad boys. This recipe was created by Libby, and I’m just sharing it here on the blog. Here’s a few disclaimers before we get into this post:

3 Simple Ways to Drink More Water

Three easy ways to drink more water. Drinking water is a easy way to be more healthy.

We all know that water is good for us, right? We all know that we probably don’t drink enough water. We all know that we should drink more water, but a majority of us never get around to it. Drinking more water usually ends up on people’s New Year’s resolutions as a part of their goal to be healthier in the new year. And just like most New Year’s resolutions, they disappear by the end of January.

I know people who never drink water. They survive off of juice, sodas, teas, and coffee. Anything and everything but water because they “don’t like water.”

You don’t like water? You mean you don’t like the substance that provides life and makes up 60% of your body?

New Split, New Goals

Creating a gym routine perfect for you: the push pull legs split.

Happy Friday, y’all! I’m really excited about today’s post because I’m about to get super real with you. I keep things pretty open here on the blog and on my social medias as well, but most of the time what you see are the happy moments, the “yearbook” moments, and the moments where I’m at my best. It’s just sadly the way social media works.

It’s easy to take a look at my Instagram and think I have my life together, every single one of my workouts is high-quality, and my diet is always on point.

Fun fact: sometimes it’s not.

Fitness Finds: Summer 2017

I’ve never been a huge shopper. I’ve never been one to constantly want to buy new clothes. I’m the person who still wears clothes from the 8th grade because they still fit and plain t-shirts never go out of style… or at least that’s what I tell myself. But y’all I think I’ve finally found my weakness when it comes to clothes and that is athletic wear.

Somehow I find myself at Marshall’s on almost a weekly basis searching for new workout gear. Do I need more leggings? No. Do I need more sports bras? No. Do I need more shirts? No. But somehow I still end up walking out with something almost every time.

Ellie Activewear: A Review

The perfect, affordable subscription box for fitness lovers! Ellie June 2017

As I was scrolling through my Instagram on day, I came across an ad for this subscription fitness box called Ellie and it immediately caught my eye. I clicked on the profile, and I was sold. A monthly fitness subscription box that sends you a full workout outfit (we’re talking a sports bra, a shirt, AND leggings) and two accessories all for $50 a month? Sign me up! Seeing as I spend way too much money on fitness gear as it is, I thought I’d try it out.

I reached out to Ellie, and they were generous enough to send me their June box to try and review and share with all of you my genuine opinion. So, before you continue, please know that Ellie did send me this box for review.
