Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie

Smoothies are a must-have in my house; I love them, my kids love them, and it’s a great way for me to sneak some veggies and fruit into everyone! Plus it’s Summer, and smoothies are a great way to cool down.

I hate taking vitamins and rarely actually eat the recommended amount of fruit and vegetables in a day, and some days I’m just too darn busy to make sure I’m getting enough protein, so I’m a big fan of vegan chocolate Shakeology. This past month I ordered tropical strawberry because it sounded a little more Summery, but I still had a little bit of vegan chocolate leftover. After a full month it finally occurred to me: WHY NOT MIX THEM?! And BOOM, chocolate covered smoothies were born. This is a recipe you absolutely must try. My 2 year old and I finished our smoothies in less than 5 minutes flat, it was that good! And hey, maybe add some fresh/frozen strawberries and/or a banana! I didn’t have any in the house today, otherwise I would have!

Bikini Boot Camp!

102_0381

Last week I was able to bring my family on the best vacation of my life so far, and after having two kids I was able to rock my new bikini! I have a ton of stretch marks and my abs are still hidden under a little bit of extra skin but I worked HARD for this body and I am proud of how far I have come. Don’t give up on your goals; it drives me crazy to hear moms say that they will never wear a bikini again/be a size _ again/fit in their favorite clothes again/etc. Believe you can and you WILL! However, my journey is not over, and it never will be! Healthy is a lifestyle, not a diet. My Bikini Boot Camp challenge group starts July 1st and I will be kicking butt with Hip Hop Abs! If you want to kick butt with me I urge you to join my challenge group to get the body you deserve and to make a healthy change!
