Nichole’s Workout Mantras. . .
One of my favorite ways to do workouts these days is using mantras and motivational phrases. These mantras need to be words that you focus on to finish a good solid workout. Some examples are “Finish,” “Strong, “Just do it,” “Forward,” “I’ve got this,” ect. We all have the words we focus on, the phrases that push us just a bit more.
I take these phrases and spell them out with one of my letter charts, this makes for a solid workout. You get 20 seconds breathers in between each movement and one minute breather in between words. I generally pick 5 different mantras, and I am off and running. Pick some phrases and motivate you right now and get ready for a fun workout!
Ruthie’s Healthy Recipe. . .
Orange Chocolate Smoothie is a healthy and delicious protein packed way to start your day!
I was walking around the grocery store the other day noticing all the holiday candy that has recently showed up all over the isles. It was then that I noticed one of my favorite little christmas time treats. . . those lovely boxed chocolate oranges!
That was it! The inspiration for our Orange Chocolate Smoothie today 🙂
I figured I could make a healthy, protein packed, delicious version of my favorite holiday treat and enjoy it that much more often. After all chocolate milk is a great way to recover from workouts, clementine oranges add that lovely orangy-i-ness we need, and we’re hitting the protein with fat-free greek yogurt and chocolate protein powder! YUMMMMMM.
I promise ya’ll that this Orange Chocolate Smoothie is AH-mazing!
Orange Chocolate Smoothie will be your favorite way to enjoy the classical combination of chocolate and orange that we all love it this time of year. I’m planning to make this for my recovery from work outs and probably some night time snacking too 🙂
You’ve simply gotta whip up this Orange Chocolate Smoothie. . . it’s going to make you so happy!
Happy Fit Friday!
Much Love and Peace~
Nichole and Ruthie
