Do you prefer to workout WITH equipment or WITHOUT?? 

For me, it’s all about changing it up but if I can get by with being able to do a super effective workout in a short amount of time that targets as many muscle groups as possible without having to use any equipment then that’s a double BONUS for me! 

Try this move:

Start in plank position
Lower into sphinx onto your forearms
Raise back up to plank
Lower again to sphinx 
Then 2 pushups

 ***TIP*** 
 Keep your core, glutes, and hamstrings as tight as possible throughout each move

 REPEAT 10x’s

Oh it’s real. “Healthy” twist on one of my FAV treats. 

In a saucepan, heat 3 TBSP coconut butter (I use MELT it’s a blend of oils into a butter) on low heat. 

Once melted, mix in 10 oz bag of marshmallows. Mix until melted. 

Remove from heat. Mix in 1/2 cup all natural peanut butter and 1 scoop of vanilla Shakeology or vanilla protein powder. 

In a large bowl, dump 10 cups of Rice Krispies and pour marshmallow mixture on top. Coat and mix. 

Store in fridge in a parchment covered 13 x 9 pan. 

Enjoy!!! :)

My QUIT TIP - Try drinking flavored water!!! I quit drinking soda cold turkey over 3 years ago… and haven’t looked back since! Anytime I crave “THE BURN” (I know you soda drinkers know what I’m talking about) I make up some flavored water and it does the trick!!!
