Easiest Protein Brownie Recipe

I have been on a fitness and wellness journey for a few years now after what started as a weightloss journey. I never avoided foods I loved to try to lose weight. I would use the calorie deficit method. Which meant I still would enjoy the foods I loved, just healthier versions. And staying consistent is the name of the game when it comes to reaching your health and fitness goals. But it is a lot easier to stay consistent with your nutrition habits if you can eat foods that you already love and enjoy. And I know maybe some of you have fallen off your new year resolutions to lose weight or get fit, BUT hot girl summer is coming and I have the easiest protein brownie recipe for you.

My Daily Routine as a Woman Who Lost 70 Pounds

This is a sponsored conversation for Apogee on Behalf of Viva Naturals. All opinions are my own.

When I was starting my weight loss journey, it originally was about the number on the scale. But what I have learned is that I want true overall health mind, body, and spirit. And that true health isn't about a number on the scale, it's about strength, endurance, how you feel, and so much more.

Starting my day with a glass of lemon infused water and then I get dressed for the gym. I take my dog on a walk and then wake up my kids for school. Monday through Friday, I take my son to school and then go to the gym for my 8 am class which includes strength training. Sometimes I do yoga afterwards as well.

After the gym, sometimes I run errands, but usually I head home for a shower including my skin care routine and then log into work. I usually have a huge salad for lunch around 11:30 breaking my fast, but I'm just not really a breakfast person. I do also enjoy a protein coffee as well.

Moms On The Run: How To Stay Active When You Have Kids

Being a parent means that life is hectic. Sometimes, time can run away with you, and it can feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day, especially to fit in workouts. If you’re keen to stay active, or you want to get into exercise, it is possible to get your body moving when you’re a mom. Here are some tips to give you inspiration.

Meal Prep Ideas to Help You Stay on Track

It's February, are you still focused on your New Year Resolutions? That's why I personally like making goals for myself. I feel like with a resolution, you fall of the wagon and don't see the point to get back on, but with goals, you keep trying the next day even if you lost focus for a day or two. And what has helped me in my weight loss journey is even if I had a bad day or even a week, is that I jumped back on the wagon and tried again. Just keep trying.

For me, I had to focus on getting my nutrition right first. It took a lot of trial and error, but I finally figured out the main goal each day is planning ahead. We don't eat out like we use to at all and when we do go out to eat, we make better food choices for sure, if that means completely re-making a meal then that is what I do. I also believe meal prepping is more budget friendly as well. My husband use to say he hated left overs, but he basically didn't like having something for dinner and then having it for lunch the next day. But I had to change his mindset about his lunches so he could realize how much money we were wasting by eating out everyday. So sometimes I cook a dinner like I normally would and then make enough extras for him to have at least 3 to 4 days of lunches. That way he can switch it up if we do have leftovers for him to take.

After losing 60 pounds, I have found simple ways to make the necessary lifestyle changes to jump start those healthier goals and continue on a path to better health in the New Year!

Apps to Make Money While You Lose Weight

I was looking through my Timehop and I was reminded that two years ago my husband and I really buckled down to start our weightloss journey. We made many lifestyle changes along the way and that has been the key to success. We watch what we eat more carefully and we make sure to get 30 minutes of cardio in daily. We are still learning what works for us and had to change up our routines because sometimes we would get in a plateau. It has been a process, but we are loving knowing that we are setting a better foundation for our children.

If you know me, then you know that I am going to try and monetize anything and everything. I use to extreme coupon and I still love using coupon and discount apps regularly. And through this journey I have found so many apps to help you make money while you are getting healthy.

Low Carb Lasagna Broccoli Sausage Bake Recipe - Easy and Family Dinner Approved

I created this easy keto lasagna broccoli bake recipe so my family could have a delicious meal time without too much fuss. My husband has been focusing on the low carb diet called ketogenic for over two years now and within the past year his family has started living this lifestyle as well. My mother-in-law is at her goal weight after years of not being able to lose any weight. She also did intermittent fasting.

Low Carb Lasagna Broccoli Sausage Bake Recipe

What I love about this meal is that you can prep it ahead of time for an easy pop in the oven family dinner idea. I also love that there are left overs to make for easy meal prep. It also re-heats really well. The funny thing about how I came up with this recipe is, my husband bought a bunch of sausage brats on sale and we froze them. I saw them in the freezer after not being able to find any chicken and thought, "I bet I could throw something together with those". I searched a few recipes on Pinterest, but didn't see exactly what I was looking for based on what we had on hand. So this easy family recipe was created! And I wanted to share because it was definitely a crowd pleaser!

Keto Family Dinner Ideas

So trying to re-learn everything about the food pyramid has been difficult because the information that has been on the market can be misleading.

How to Score a FREE Fitbit

NO this is not click bate and YES you read that right. If you searched "Lark app Free Fitbit scam" to get to this page, then I am here to tell you that THIS IS LEGIT!

I have been using an app called Lark for a few months now. It was recommended to me through my husband's work. Each year we have to take a health evaluation for our insurance. The Lark app was recommended to me because I have a history of diabetes in my family and this app is all about diabetes prevention. Please note: Not all insurance plans work with the Lark app.

Get a FREE Fitbit

I have an okay diet, but a pretty inactive lifestyle unless I go to the gym. I have a history of diabetes on both sides of my family. My husband did not qualify for the Lark app because the questions he answered didn't qualify him. As soon as I signed up I received a free digital scale that is directly connected to the app and updates my weight automatically. As long as you are active on the app, then you will get a FREE Fitbit (at a certain price point).
