Getting through Cardio with a Good Read


It's no secret, I do cardio.

I used to HATE cardio, but I actually enjoy it now. The main reason I enjoy cardio now is because it is a big stress reliever for me. My schedule is so busy that having that 'me time' at the gym is really relaxing. Also waking up early and going to the gym to sweat makes me feel accomplished!

The first few weeks of cardio can be rough (try not to look at the time, it makes it go slower). Good tunes are always a good 'go-to' when you get bored of looking at the miles slowly add up. But if you start doing a lot of cardio the tunes start to get old, fast. 

I started listening to audio books and LOVED it! Not only did I feel accomplished from my workouts but I felt accomplished because I was learning as well. My book topics of choice are usually something that I feel can better myself like investing, growing my business or making healthy choices.

I recently read 'The Green Smoothie Diet'. If you are interested in learning more about all the green smoothie posts, this book is a good read! Just thought I would share <3

 

My ALL TIME FAVORITE Green Smoothie!


I've been using this recipe for a couple years now and love it! It only requires 1 fruit which is good if you are trying to cut back on adding tons of fruit in your green smoothie to sweeten it up!

Cantaloupoe Green Smoothie & Inner Thigh Workout

Cantaloupe & Banana Green Smoothie
  • 2 cups Spinach 
  • 1 Banana 
  • 2 cups Cantaloupe 
  • 1 cup Almond Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla 
  • 1 scoop Vanilla Protein 
  •   1 Scoop Sprouted Flax, Chia & Broccoli
    (Seriously, LOVE my Sprouted Flax, Chia & Broccoli!! There is over 5,000mg of Omegas per serving! FYI: Omega Essential Fatty Acids are "essential" because our bodies do not produce them--we must get them from food on a regular basis. So using this supplement is a great way to make sure you get them!)

Inner Thigh Workout- 15 reps, 5 sets!
