Peanut Butter tip & Muscle Blast

pre workout–banana w/pb – 2pts+

I’m finding that eating a little peanut butter with my banana before my workouts vs. just a banana helps me a TON!  I’ve noticed it’s helped me maintain my energy throughout my workouts and keeps my blood sugar stable so that I don’t feel famished when I’m done with a hard workout.

Workout: Muscle Blast class with Carla at 24Hr –  +8pts

This chick is AWESOME!!!!! First off she has the lean body that I dream of achieving, and second she does the coolest/different exercises in this class to really target your core and smaller muscles in addition to the larger.  LOVE LOVE this class!

dinner gave me heartburn–which I haven’t had in YEARS so that I decided the only think that could nip that in the bud was some good ole Blue Bell 😉

After my 4th, and final baby, I decided I wanted to be more active, healthier, happier, and to be an example to my kids. I joined Weight Watchers and started using the Points Plus program to learn portion control, moderation, and develop healthier habits. I also used the dietSNAPS app to track my meals and it was such a life changer for me to literally *see* what I was putting in my body! Cyndi, Lexy and I created this blog to be accountability partners and that has been a huge key to this journey! I love to cook and I love converting my favorite recipes into a healthier version for my family to enjoy! I love the after effects of exercising :) I love challenging myself to fitness goals to change things up and in doing so I have run numerous 5K/10K's, several half marathons, one full 26.2 marathon, and a Tough Mudder. I love circuit training, weight training, and running sprints. My goal is to inspire others to take their health seriously, and to show how small changes can lead to big results.

    Great tip about peanut butter! Peanut butter is without a doubt one of the best sources of calories for someone who is trying to gain lean muscle. Like yourself I will add it to my post workout shakes, I’m also a big fan of peanut sesame noodles and satay chicken.
