Blogilates Beginner's Calendar 2.0: Week 2 Update!

Hey everyone! So I've officially been doing the Blogilates Beginner's calendar for 2 weeks now, and I'm having a lot of fun doing it! I'm always challenged, but I feel like comparing to myself 14 days ago, I'm already stronger.

The great thing for me, doing this calendar, has been that it kind of forces you to get up and be active. You really don't have to think hard about it, it's all planned out for you, just need to stick with it.

For those of you thinking about doing this, I really recommend it! I'm already so much more motivated to work out every day, I feel a lot stronger and more energetic every day and I'm loving it. Today's my rest day and I'm thinking of maybe working out for fun now...

Today's recipe was the Berrylicious Microwave Minute Muffin, which is actually such an interesting idea. I edited the recipe to be more tasty to me, because the basic 3 ingredient recipe sounded a bit like eggy oatmeal to me. For those wondering, I used: 1 egg white, 1/4 cup quick oats, 1 banana (mashed), 1 tbsp almond milk, 1/4 cup frozen mixed berries. I'll definitely make this recipe again when I need a quick breakfast. Maybe just omit the almond milk, because it was a bit on the soft side!

Happy Friday everyone!

Blogilates Beginner Calendar 2.0: Week 1 Check-In

Hi everyone! So my first week of the Blogilates Beginner Calendar 2.0 is done and I'm honestly SO happy I decided to take on this challenge, because not only is it fun, but I'm already seeing some changes in my body! (I know! Even after only 1 week!).

I'm really loving this calendar because you're doing something new every day so you're never bored. Plus it doesn't require any weights or machines. Just you and a yoga mat.

I've already noticed that parts of my body that used to be really weak (*ahem, my abs*), are already getting stronger! I really believe that this is working. Every workout gets me sore and I'm challenged every step of the way but somehow I'm having fun? Today is my rest day and I'm almost sad that I don't get to work out today (and this is coming from the girl that used to hate working out!)

Today I had to make the 2-Ingredient Pancake recipe (2 eggs and 1 ripe Banana), which was okay. Definitely no buttermilk pancake there but great for a low carb, high protein breakfast. I added some cinnamon and about a tbsp of oats, and topped it with lots of berries which helped it taste a little nicer to me.

Anyway, that's all of now! Happy Friday everyone! Follow me on Twitter if you'd like to see more updates on my fitness journey and just general day to day stuff!

Join Me on my Fitness Journey!

Hey everyone!
Since I'm no longer spending every waking moment studying, I've realized how much I've really let myself go when it comes to my diet and fitness. So this summer, I'm challenging myself to have a better diet and to workout more often!

Sometimes it's not always possible for me to make it to the gym every day, so in addition to going to the gym, I'm taking on the Blogilates Beginner Calendar, starting July 1st.
I really recommend you guys trying it out with me!

I'm going to be posting weekly check-ins on each of the 4 weeks of the calendar (so every Sunday) to talk about how I'm feeling and how I'm liking the program! Lets see some results!

Let me know in the comments if you want to join me in this! I'm so excited!
