Need Some Motivation??? Watch This!

9 Oct

This gets me motivated every single time I watch it.  It is empowering!  Part of being successful in reaching fitness goals is to keep motivated.  I find that looking at fitness magazines, going to RX Muscle or Hardbody Fitness websites also helps get me motivated.  I also find that on a tough day when the energy is low, especially just before a competition, that  meditating and visualizing my workout before I go helps me a ton.  If I visualize that I am focused, determined and have loads of energy during my workout, it actually helps when I hit the gym!  Try it!!

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Delicious No-Bake Protein Cookies

9 Oct

This recipe will make 6 cookies

1/2 cup of honey

3 heaping spoonfuls of organic peanut butter

1 to 1 1/2 cups of old-fashioned oats

2 large scoops of vanilla or chocolate protein powder of your choice.

For the super easy way… combine the honey and peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl.  Heat for about a minute so that they mix together easily.  Stir in the oats and then the protein.  Scoop with spoon and drop onto a baking sheet lined with tin-foil.  Place in the fridge and allow to set (usually only 15-20 minutes).  If they are left in the fridge, simply pull one out and let it sit for a moment so that it softens up before you begin to eat or you can zap it in the microwave for 10 seconds and it is ready to eat.  Enjoy!
