Be Fit Friday

by Bess on April 18, 2014

Happy Friday everyone…below is one of my go-to’s for a full body strength workout plus some fat blasting HIIT.  Get a 5-10 minute warm up jog in first then get into the rest of the workout!


Foodie Faves Lately

by Bess on April 17, 2014

Things I’m obsessed with lately:

This breakfast.  Oats made with almond milk, honey, and blueberries.  I’ve been having it for breakfast almost everyday for the past week.  It is so simple and perfect.

Two different bowls from two different days but yeah they always look the same.  If it ain’t broke don’t fix it!

Also, putting guacamole/avocado and sriracha on everything.  (I know we already know I’m a fan of this combo. I just like reminding everyone how much I love it.)  Like a veggie burger patty…

And a portobello mushroom with sautéed greens & chicken.

Love those little guacamole cups.  They are from Costco of course.  Oh, speaking of Costco, yes I’m still eating that Costco superfood salad mix a few times a week…

I saw this […]
