The Challenge of Fearing Change

2014-11-25-10.52.29.jpg

I have been wanting and needing a push in my physical fitness routine.  Yet, while I share that I have that desire I do not like to give my all in anything… because giving your all usually means it will hurt, it will stretch you, it will change you, and can bring you to tears.

Yet, not challenging myself in any area that I desire to see growth … will not bring upon change.  I will not lift heavier.  I will not run faster.  I will not lose weight.  I will not Continue Reading

Post Workout Strawberry Banana Protein Smoothie

Fueling our muscles post workout is just as important as the workout itself.  When we workout we are breaking down the muscles… and we need rest and fuel to repair those broken down muscles.  For me, I enjoy drinking my nutrient dense protein shake post workout.  It is not only delicious but it is doing so many amazing things for my body and muscles post workout. I made this delicious post workout strawberry banana smoothie earlier this week.  I shared it with the boys, and they drank it right up.  We all enjoyed this tasty strawberry treat.  Continue Reading
