I’m proud to say I finally found a workout program I can stick with. I started Piyo in the beginning of September and I’m almost finished with it. Once I complete it I will be doing a full review of the program on my fitness page. I’ve really recommitted to my fitness journey and have been seeing great progress. I actually find myself looking forward to my workouts most days (what has happened to me?)
I think that is one of the most important things when choosing an exercise plan.. finding something you’ll enjoy. If you don’t enjoy it, you’ll view it as a burden and dread your workouts. How can you possibly stick with something like that? You’re workouts should still challenge you, of course, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy them.
I’ve gotten my nutrition back on track as well, which is extremely important. I’m sure you’ve heard it before, you can’t out exercise poor nutrition, and its so true. To really achieve the full picture of health, you need a balance between nutrition and fitness.
Any of you who know me, know that my sweet tooth is my down fall. I’ve been getting better and better at resisting my cravings but I still love my desserts. So rather then completely restricting myself, I’m trying to find healthier ways to satisfy my sweet tooth. And these no bake energy bites definitely do the trick. They’re so easy to make, only five healthy ingredients, and no oven required. Packed with amazing super foods, these are great for a pre-workout snack or an afternoon pick me up.
- 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
- 1 tbsp ground flax seed
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- ½ cup natural peanut butter
- ⅓ cup honey (use 100% maple syrup for vegan version)
- In a large bowl mix all ingredients together until everything is combined well.
- Roll into balls, using 1 tbsp for each. (Should make approx. 16)
- Place in the freezer for 30 minutes to firm up.
- Remove from freezer, and enjoy.
- Store in the fridge in a sealed container.
