Some of my favorite posts to write are the ones that help us stay accountable with health and fitness. I cram a lot into one day and we all know when that happens sometimes the first thing to get cut, is time for fitness. When in reality it should be the most important part of ones day. Getting a good sweat on and focusing your mind on a workout is such a great stress reliever and hello workout endorphins. Take for example the other day I was caught in the worst traffic coming home and missed my barre class, instead of coming home and flopping on the couch with the tv and honey wheat pretzels……I streamed popsugar workouts onto my computer and got my heart pumping.

You all know how I feel about a good plank challenge!
Also, I wanted to share a recipe for a post workout smoothie. One of my favorite ways to get that protein in without adding chemically laden protein powder mix, is to use greek yogurt. I try to just use the non flavored kind because it acts as a great base for mix ins. To give the smoothie a sweet finish I add a little of the Born Sweet® Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener. Just mix the greek yogurt, almond milk, a scoop of almond butter (I like the one from Trader Joe’s with chia seeds in it) and a packet of the Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener. It is a zero calorie sweetener that is made with real ingredients (nothing artificial!) and it doesn’t have that funny aftertaste or make the smoothie overly sweet. I also started buying the unsweetened almond milk and adding a little of the Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener to my coffee in the morning and it gives it just the perfect amount of sweetness without adding any extra calories.
