Benefits of SujaBenefits of SujaBenefits of SujaBenefits of Suja

I am so thankful for Suja sending me these drinks to try! They have been so amazing, I love drinking them. I have about one a day. If you re looking for a way to get your greens in, then this is the drink. I love how they use great, quality ingredients. They don’t just throw whatever in there, its real fruits and veggies.

I have tasted many green drinks and they have a bitter taste & these Suja drinks do not!

They have juices, smoothies, probiotic waters, kombuchas, and vinegars. If you are looking for a fresh start from falling off your fitness and nutrition they  offer 1, 3, & 5 day cleanses that you can purchase from them here.

It is hard to say which one is my favorite because I seriously have loved them all. I love all of the health benefits they offer. I also got my brothers who are 13 and 14 to try them & they liked them!!! If teenage boys actually like them then they really are delicious.

I love the probiotic vinegar waters because they help with digestion. If you have problems digesting food or problems going to the bathroom then these are the drinks for you. They have 9 different flavors: Strawberry, Peach Ginger, Hibiscus Ancho Chile, Lemon Cayenne, Ginger Turmeric, Lemongrass Lime, Cucumber Ginger, Blueberry Lemon, Guayusa Lemon.

If you are looking for a way to get more probiotics in your body then the probiotic waters are a great options. They have 5 different flavors in these: Raspberry, Strawberry, Orange Ginger Pineapple, Pineapple Lemon Cayenne, & Ginger Lime.

Who doesn’t love drinking Kombuchas? There are so many benefits to drinking a kombucha a day. Helps detoxify your body, aids in digestion, natural energy booster, help strength your immune system, contains so many vitamins, and is a lot healthier option than a soda. They have 4 flavors: Berry, Peach, Ginger, & Green.

They also have the suja, classic, & element which have many different flavors and they have such great benefits as well.

Drinking a suja a day can keep the doctors away lol. But seriously with the flu going around and the weather being crazy these a great option to have one a day to make sure you are getting all of your fruits and veggies as well as so many other benefits to your health. They sell them at basically every grocery store.

Try them out and let me know what you think of them!!

Getting Back Into A Routine After Falling Off Track

Getting back into a fitness routine

So the new year new me thing may have worn off of some people by now. A lot of the times we start something but never follow through all the way like we would like to. Did you fall off of your routine & are stuck? We wait until the beginning of the year to start our working out and eating healthy. Most people stick to it & some fall off after a couple of weeks.

What keeps you inspired to sticking to your fitness & nutrition goals? I look back as my last show and how lean I was and how I could actually see my abs and I want to get back to that but actually stay there. I know I can do it if I reverse correctly. See what makes you inspired & look at it everyday or set it as your background on your phone so you see it multiple times a day.

It is so important you get into a routine and a great schedule everyday so you don’t fall off track. We all start somewhere. It is very important that you figure out what you like. Not everyone enjoys lifting weights. There are other types of workouts that you can do to get your heart rate up and burning fat.

Set goals for yourself. When you have reached that goal of losing 5 or 10 pounds reward yourself.

Find out what works best for you. What makes you happy. Maybe it is a group fitness class, pilates, spin class, swimming, lifting weights, HIIT workouts. Try out different types and see which you like best.

Have a workout buddy to keep you accountable. Both of y’all plan to go to the gym everyday at a certain time. When you have a friend to go with it makes you not want to cancel on them. They will be there to help push you through your workout and make it enjoyable.

Think of why you started. What are your goals that you are trying to accomplish. Are you trying to get fit for yourself or health reasons?

Never give up because you can’t do something. If you are having trouble with the weight or movement, drop the weight and slow down and really control your workouts.

Make it a lifestyle. Don’t do it because you think you have to. Do it because it is what you want to do.

When you have a set routine everyday it makes it easier to not make impulsive decisions. Like going out for drinks on a Tuesday.

Think about what you are putting into your body. Yes we all have cravings and it is fine to have those in MODERATION but your body does not need that. Make sure you are meal planning so it is easy for you to grab something to eat and quick for you when you have such a busy schedule.

When I started getting into fitness and caring about what I ate, it changed my life. I feel so amazing now and look way better. I am not under eating or over eating I am eating what is right for my body. When I go out to eat I make the right decisions. I chose to get chicken and rice with a salad or steak. Something healthy and that is good for my body. Not chicken fried chicken that I know as soon as I finish eating it I will feel awful and it will make me so sick.

I hope you enjoyed my post on how to get back into a routine if you have fallen off track! Have a great rest of your day!

5 Healthy Habits + Bikini Girl Diaries Week 4

bikini girl diaries update

Bikini Girl Diaries week 4 update coming at ya!!

So… I got food poisoning from I think Kona Grill eating chicken. Chicken is like my main source of protein and now what the heck. I can’t even smell chicken, it makes me gag.

I had Kona of Friday night and as soon as I woke up Saturday morning I could tell something was off. I was so nauseous and my stomach hurt so bad.
It was my friend’s birthday and we were taking a spin class that morning. I felt so sick when I got there and then it was time for class and the entire time during class I felt so sick. I could not pedal as fast or do all the movements. I ended up leaving class 5 minutes early because I thought I was going to throw up.

When we were taking pictures after spin I could barley stand up. So I left, went straight home, showered, and went to sleep. I woke up and Jake was home from Austin to take care of me.
I forced myself  to eat my normal breakfast that morning which was oats, PB, and egg whites. For the rest of the day I could not eat anything and then finally around 8:30, I felt like I could eat some fruit. So I had some strawberries and banana.

Saturday and Sunday I was unable to do my normal workouts which sucked but I was not able to. Listening to your body is the best thing.

But other than that I hit my macros. Last week I weighed 137.4 and this week I weighed 135.0!!

Also on Tuesday I took my first ever pilates class at BodyBar Fitness. I loved it. A mini goal of mine is to try new fitness activities. So pilates was one of them and it challenged my body. I am not use to that and I am so sore from it. It also probably wasn’t the best idea taking that class on leg day lol.

Today I thought I would share 5 healthy habits. Since it is still basically the new year, I thought this would be perfect.

  1. Find YOUR healthy eating style. Just because I eat a certain way doesn’t mean that works for you. It is all about balance. If you have been good all week and you are craving that cheat meal. GO eat that meal. You have to be happy with what you are eating and not miserable. Be happy & healthy with the way you are eating.
  2. Always be happy and positive. Just because you gained a pound this week doesn’t mean you should be hard on yourself and think negatively. If you know in your head that you had a really great week with training and eating, then that is all that matters. My weight fluctuates all the time. But I try my best to stay positive and always be happy with what I am doing.
  3. Drink more water. I cannot express how important it is to drink water. I always make sure I am drink 4.5-6 liters a day. Not saying you have to drink that much but there a million benefits to why drinking a lot of water a day is so beneficial for you.
  4. Be active. Everyone likes working out in different ways. Some people love yoga, lifting weights, cardio, pilates, zumba, or whatever it is. Whatever you like and what works for you stick to it. Find what you enjoy doing that is active.
  5. Quality sleep. Sleep is very important to your body. Not only will you be cranky and moody if your don’t get sleep but then you will have zero energy for anything else. Your body will thank you later for getting the right amount of sleep you need.

I hope you all enjoyed this blog post and these tips will help you stay on track this new year. Do you have mini goals that you like to achieve?
