my health + fitness routine

I’ve had a few questions lately about what workout/eating program I follow. I thought I’d put together a little post for you guys so you can see what my routine looks like! Feel free to comment any questions. I’d love to hear what you guys do to stay fit and what your routine looks like!

Food

Let’s be honest we all have those days where we eat the most random stuff. Or we eat everything in sight. One of the ways, however, that I’ve found is helpful for eating a balanced diet is meal prep. After completing Arbonne’s 30 days to healthy eating program, my perspective on food shifted. I try to fuel my body with more vegetables and healthy fats and proteins than anything.

For me, breakfast is usually a protein smoothie with greens, almond butter, and protein powder. For lunch I try to meal-prep three days at a time.  Lunch is either a salad with fruit and a protein on it, or brown rice, vegetables, and a protein and healthy fat. This is the guideline you follow in the arbonne detox and I’ve stuck with it. It helps me feel full but also fuels my body with the energy it needs. Also, don’t be afraid to eat more food if your body is hungry. Just be eating the right food. Often times the reason we’re exhausted or don’t seem to be making any progress when it comes to health/fitness goals is because we’re not giving our body the nutrition it needs.

Workouts

For the past four months I’ve been using Kayla Itsines “Sweat” app. You guys this app is incredible. Personally, it has helped me develop more of a workout routine. I love working out because I know what I am going to do that day, and don’t have to walk around the gym looking for a machine to get started on. I try to get at least 5 in a week. It varies a TON. Some weeks I go to barre classes, some weeks I run outside. Although there is a good bit of variation in my schedule week-by-week, here’s what a typical week looks like for me in terms of workouts.

Sunday– 20 minute step-up followed by weightlifting (either legs, arms, or full body)

Monday– step-up warm-up (15 minutes) – Leg workout (28 minutes) – abs + stretching (10 minutes)

Tuesday– HIIT Step-up workout and conditioning (45 minutes) OR weightlifting-arms

Wednesday-rest or low intensity cardio(a jog/walk outside)

Thursday– cardio warm up (15 minutes) – Arm workout (28 minutes) – abs+stretching (10 minutes)

Friday-rest or low intensity cardio

Saturday– HIIT running sprints (20 minutes) – Ab workout (28 minutes)

Like I said this varies a TON week to week. It depends on what days I get in the gym, how much time I have, etc.

Favorite Health Products

Many of you guys know about the program I did few months ago by Arbonne. It helped get me out of the rut I was in and helped motivate me to live healthier. I’ve stuck with a few of the products and have noticed a huge difference. Here are my favorites:

Protein powder-(chocolate or vanilla)-I struggled for a while finding a protein that actually filled me up and gave me the energy I needed. This stuff is SO good.

Pre-workout-I usually take this before or during the beginning of my workout. It gives me the energy I need without a crash mid-workout. It helps sustain your body and hydrate you as well.

Fizz sticks-the BEST energy drinks with vitamins including B12, helps boost metabolism + curb hunger. SO great if you’re a coffee addict and need a replacement. These are so good mixed with an iced green tea or iced detox tea.

Greens Balance-I add this to my smoothies in the morning or recovery shakes! It helps balance your diet and give your bodies the nutrients it needs.
