My Favorite Greek Yogurt Ideas!
Let me begin by saying that, I LOVE GREEK YOGURT!
It is packed with protein, all sorts of vitamins and minerals (calcium, B12, B6, zinc, potassium), probiotics for gut health, and it is lower in lactose than regular yogurt.
Basically, Greek yogurt is King. Seriously!
I enjoy having my plain fat-free Greek yogurt in 3 different ways.
Take it with you to work, school, picnic, or eat it at home! When you're looking for a great snack that you know will fill you up, provide you with the right nutrients, and keep you on track, get some Greek Yogurt!

10 Workout Secrets: Pro Tips
Get the most out of your workouts, these are a few things you can be sure to follow to get the best bang for your buck!
Nothing happenes overnight. Adopting a new lifestyle takes time and effort. It all begins with you taking the initiative and doing it over and over again. While you work on making sure you eat healthy and make it to the gym 5 times a week, the longer you can do that just that, the easier it becomes later on. Stay consistent with your training and it soon becomes a part of you. You got this!
2. SET REALISTIC GOALS
Looking to be perfect or striving for an improbable goal, is not realistic. Be smart and take things one at a time, so that it does not become overwhelming and its sustainable long term.
Don't stress about not being able to run a 5k just yet. Instead, make it a habit to walk 15 minutes, slowly add time, distance, and intensity.
3. GRAB A FRIEND
Find a friend who also wishes to establish a healthy lifestyle! Nothing is better than encouragement from someone you trust. It's a great chance strengthen a relationship and build a bond together.
4. MAKE YOUR PLAN FIT YOUR LIFE
We're all busy, so making time to exercise needs to meet your schedule. You don't need a gym to be fit and healthy.
Use the floor space in your house or apartment to you advantage. A park works just fine as well! Try some simple yet effective exercises that target the legs, buttocks, chest, and arms (such as push-ups, squats, and lunges). A good rep range to aim for is 10-12 for each exercise, adding more reps and intensity as you build strength.
6. ENJOY EVERY MINUTE
Pick an activity you actually enjoy doing, no body wants to do something that's boring! If you can't stand running on a treadmill, use the outdoors! You don't like weights? There are other activities that don't involve heavy lifting that you can do to lose weight.
You want to workout when you have the most energy! That could be in the mornings, midday or at night, everyone is different. If you chose to workout when you feel best, your bound to see better results.
8. CALL IN THE PROS
This is very important if you're just starting out. You want to be sure that you consult with a fitness professional to determine what workout best suits you and your goals.
Some may need more flexibility and mobility than resistance training or aerobics. You can't go wrong with working with a trusted trainer.
9. GET INSPIRED
Fitness is very much a state of mind. Find outside sources that help you stay focused and motivated. Read blogs of people you look up to in the industry, watch videos of those you see as role models, etc. who inspires you??
Rome wasn't built in a day. Have faith and stay patient my friend. There will be ups and downs, but you will get through it! Use those who motivate you and your gym partner to hold you accountable. Hang in there :)

New Years Resolutions!
Happy New Year to all of you! :) I really hope many of you stick with your fitness journey and hopefully some are looking to begin!!
As we kick off this year, I want to welcome anyone new to the fitness game and feel free to drop in and ask any questions you may have regarding fitness, workouts, nutrition, I would be more than glad to help! Here's my email: email@example.com
For those new starting off your fitness journey, maybe it's weight loss, building some muscle or just general overall health, don't feel like you are intimidated in the gym. We all started in the same spot. A bit confused, curious and with a burning desire to change for the better. Ask questions at your gym of you are curious. Desk staff is always willing to help, other members that have gotten the hang of things are often willing to shoot you some advice.
One thing that I don't really understand is why many see all the new folks coming in to the gym, to start their New Years resolutions, in a negative sense. When you hear the "oh brace yourselves, the new people are coming in", you have to be understand that these people what to change for the better and that YOU once were in their shoes.
Help each other out! Nothing better than seeing people kick off the year with a sweet workout and a drive to make it to the gym 3-5 times a week.
If any of you are wanting advice on how to begging your exercise regimen or maybe you're already an avid gym goer with spicing up your current workout, hit me up! I'd be glad to chat with anybody!
Happy lifting this 2016! :)
