Happy Monday everyone! I hope you have an amazing day! I don’t know how you start off your morning but mine is ALWAYS the same thing, COFFEE. I have coffee every single morning. It is a must for me. If I don’t have my coffee within an hour of waking up I start getting a head ache and it’s just not fun lol. So today I have put together some of my most favorite coffee’s. I will also have a workout posted at the end of the blog post!

I want to start incorporating more workouts in my posts so if you don’t know what you want to do at the gym that day, you can screen shot it & do that workout! Start off your Monday with this killer shoulder workout at the end!

If you don’t follow @themacrobarista on instagram you are messing up. He posts all kinds of healthy starbucks recipes that are like half the calories/carbs/fats.  

My absolute go to starbucks drink is a grande blonde roast with 2 pumps sugar free mocha, 2 pumps sugar free vanilla, 1 stevia. Literally taste identical to a Mocha.

One of my favorites I got from @themacrobarista is the Iced Cinnamon Almond Milk Macchiato. 90 Calories, 2g Protein, 11g Carbs, 4g Fat, 9g sugar. Literally AMAZING macros. Here is how you order it.

Iced Cinnamon Almond Milk Macchiato:

1. Ask for a grande Iced Cinnamon Almond Milk Macchiato.

2. Ask to *substitute FOUR (4) pumps of sugar free cinnamon dolce syrup

3. Ask for LIGHT caramel drizzle.

4. Ask for LIGHT cinnamon dolce topping.

Okay another amazing thing about @themacrobarista is that EVERYTHING is in MyFitnessPal. All you have to do is search Fit_with_coffee

My next favorite of @themacrobarista is the iced caramel macchiato. I mean the caramel macchiato is one of everyones favorite. 140 Calories, 1g Protein, 18g Carbs, 7g Fat, 17g Sugar

Iced Carmel Macchiato:

1. Ask for a grande iced caramel macchiato

2. Ask to substitute sugar free vanilla syrup

3. Ask for coconut milk

4. Ask for LIGHT caramel drizzle

If you track everything a great way is to bring your almond milk or your own creamer that you have measured out so you know exactly how much of milk or creamer that you have in your coffee so you are as accurate as possible.

I hope you enjoyed my go to coffee’s. Thanks to the wonderful @themacrobarista for sharing and coming up with all these amazing coffee’s!

First off Happy first day of 2018, I had such an amazing year and I am so excited to see what 2018 brings me. I discussed my 2018 goals in my last blog post, here. Today I am enjoying my day off with the pups & Jake. I hope you all have an amazing year.

I have been enjoying the high carb life lately but as the new year approaches and I get closer to a show my macros are going to start lowering. When you are lower carb it’s all about volume. Today I am going to be sharing some of my favorite low carb substitutes since it is the New Year and everyone love the “new year, new me” I thought it was perfect to share this blog post for the day.

1. Rice: A cup of jasmine rice is 45 carbs. A great substitute for rice is going to be cauliflower rice. A cup of cauliflower rice is going to be 4 carbs. A huge difference. A great recipe I love to make with the cauliflower rice because obviously it doesn’t taste as good but making a chicken “fried rice” is so yummy. I will mix different veggies in there with chicken and 1 egg and boom. A great yummy low carb meal. 

2. Pasta: I mean who doesn’t love pasta? Towards the end of my revise diet I was starting to have more pasta because it is so high in carbs. A low carb option for pasta would be spaghetti squash. 1 cup of spaghetti squash is 5.5 carbs compared to the 40-60 grams of carbs in pasta.

3. French Fries: French fries are one of America’s favorites because I swear you can order it almost any place you go to order food. But they are also fried and not the best for you. A great low carb option would be baked zucchini strips. French fries range anywhere from 40-70 grams of carbs per serving where zucchini strips could be anywhere from 10-15 grams depending on the serving size. Also al restaurants they usually serve you was bigger portion sizes just FYI.

4. Bread: Who doesn’t love bread? Bread is seriously life lol. I enjoy having my peanut butter and jelly as well as avocado toast. I get the sodium free rice cakes and they are amazing. You can top it with your avocado or peanut butter and jelly & I promise it is just as good. Try this out and let me know what you think.

Some great low carb meals I love to make are: Mushroom pizzas, lettuce wrapped tacos, zucchini lasagna, chicken stuffed celery sticks, eggplant pizza bites, and halo top.

I hope you all enjoyed my low carb options let me know if you end up trying any! Also, have an amazing year everyone!

2018 Goals

Goodbye 2017 and Hello 2018!

My 2018 goals My 2018 Goals

What are my goals & plans for 2018? First, I want to get my game plan of my prepping season and see what shows are available for me to do. My last show was November 5, 2016. I have taken all of last year off. Not  by choice but it was best for my body. I have also included a HIIT workout that you only need bands and dumbbells for. SO great for a hotel or small apartment gym. The HIIT workout will be included at the end of this post!

I am currently taking a much needed break from schooling starting back up in the fall. Since I will not be focusing on school I am more than ready to start competing. I am thinking in my head this year I want to do around 4 shows, hopefully.

Jake and I will be going to Mexico in the summer with his family & I am super excited for that. Last time I went to Mexico with them it was about a month after my first bikini competition. I was binge eating like crazy there and was super uncomfortable with my body. I am excited this time because I am able to control myself & by then I will be fully comfortable with myself. We may or may not be moving from our apartment this year. Our lease is up in April and right now we are going to renew it. Maybe by December we will be looking into getting out starter home. Who knows only time will tell.

As for my plans for my blog I want to be more consistent with it. Be able to post more recipes, updates about how my cut is going, prep updates, life, workouts, some fashion posts, and home updates.

I want to start posting more on my YouTube because I enjoy putting the videos together and sharing workout and recipes that way as well.

I hope everyone has the best year yet & enjoy the HIIT workout!

Ab Workouts + Full Day Of Eating

Never neglect your abs! To me it is so boring to workout my core. I start thinking about 20 million other things. But I make sure every week I work out my core at least once. Yes you do workout your core doing basically everything but to set aside 15-20 minutes to get in 500 reps of abs. I know once I shed some more body fat that I will have a core like I did in the picture above and not just be “skinny.” I want to have ab definition because truthfully I love the way it looked on me and I can’t wait until I get back there but even better!

So today I am sharing some of my favorite ab workouts in a video for you as well as a full day of eating. I have been trying to incorporate more plant based meals and it has been tough to get in my protein amount for the day but I have been feeling so much better eating better.

I hope you enjoy the video! Be sure to like & subscribe!

Ab Workout:

Rope Crunches

Planks & Side Planks

Decline Crunches

Leg Raises

Hanging Leg Raises
