Clean Banana Oatmeal Muffins

Check out this awesome recipe I found at the Fit & Healthy with Debbie blog! I don't have a food processor and a blender worked just fine! I made them yesterday in all about 10 minutes of prep and I'm eating them as we speak and they are DELICIOUS.

2.5 cups old fashioned oats 

1 cup plain low fat Greek yogurt

2 eggs

1/2 cup honey

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

2 TBSP ground flax seed

1 tsp vanilla

2 ripe bananas 

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray tin with non-stick cooking spray or line 12 muffin tins with silicone or foil liners.
2. Place the oats in the food processor and pulse for about 10 seconds.  Add remaining ingredients to the food processor. 
3. Process until everything is mixed together and oats are smooth.
4. Divide batter among cupcake liners, and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. 
*You can add walnuts or other goodies to the muffins if you'd like to have something a little extra

Difference between Turbofire, Turbojam & Turbokick

Turbokick is the health club version. It is intense cardio meant for intermediate to advance levels. It's a mix of kickboxing, hip hop, and anaerobic drills.

Turbojam is the home version of Turbokick but meant for beginner to intermediate levels. It's not as intense. It's a great place to start for people who are out of shape and need help getting going. People really stick with it because they don't get bored with it and a lot of people end up loosing a lot of weight. The program starts off with easy 15 minute workouts and builds to more difficult 30 minute workouts. I'd say it's a great choice for those who haven't worked out in a long  time or at all and need to ease into working out with feeling overwhelmed.

Turbofire is the most intense of the three. It's great for those who are choreography challenged and like a more athletic version of working out. Based on the HIIT interval, you work at your highest intensity for a minute and recover for a minute. It has various lengths for their workouts which is great for those who don't have a ton of time each day. It has great music and is super fun. Turbofire has everything; flexibility, cardio, strength training and intervals. It's pretty revolutionary.

Keys to a Successful Beachbody Business: Social Media and other tips

Are you considering becoming a Beachbody coach? Perhaps you're a SAHM and looking to make some income to provide for your family. Maybe you have tried Beachbody products and loved them so now you want to pay it forward. Or maybe you love making others feel good. Whatever your reason here are some tips beyond Beachbody training guides that will help your business thrive.

1. Don't rely just on family & friends. It is a good place to start by this will run out quickly and is one of the top reasons BB businesses fail. By all means talk to them, use them to find friends of friends that might be interested, but don't push products on them. It isn't fun to feel rejected by people you care about anyway.

2. GET IN FRONT OF THE CUSTOMER. Find people who are already interested in the biz. How do I do this without paying for leads (which BB doesn't allow btw)? Think about where you can find people already interested; forums, facebook groups, personal trainers in your area, etc. It's a lot less stressful to talk BB with people who are already interested.

3. Explore hashtags. Hashtags are a great way to find people of common interests that you can strike up conversations with and establish relationships over commonalities.

4. BUILD RELATIONSHIPS! Don't jump right into promoting BB products the second you start talking to people (unless they have already expressed interest). Get to know people and be genuine. You really can't help anyone until you know more about them, like their goals, motivations and interests.

5. Post on social media but make sure to not limit yourself to just BB posts, include things like humor, personal posts, family, motivation, healthy activities, recipes, etc.

6. Create a Facebook page for your business, invite people to like your page and then send them a quick thank-you message and engage them in conversation to, you guessed it, build relationships.

7. Create Challange Groups that are free with no BB commitment. A lot of people may be interested but not ready to commit to the cost of BB. This will allow others t test the waters and give you an idea of people interested in getting fit and eating healthier.

8. Grow your network daily by 3-4 people. You have to meet new people to succeed.

How To Start Working Out and Stick With It!

We have all been there. We decide to start working out and getting healthy. We make a plan and it goes well for awhile but eventually life gets in the way and the workouts stop. We're right back where we started. Committing to a healthy lifestyle and sticking with it is hard. Here are some of my tips to committing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle of fitness that have worked for me.
1. Set small attainable goals withing your long term goals. How are you going to reach your long term goals? Through short-term gains. Getting in shape doesn't happen overnight.  If you haven't ran in years, don't start by running 5 miles. You want to challenge yourself, but be realistic about where you are currently and work towards long term goals incrementally. Baby steps people!
2. Workout with others. You are less likely to give up on exercise if you aren't just accountable to yourself but to someone else. Not to mention you can motivate and encourage one another. Inspire & be inspired!
3. Make exercise fun. A good work out dvd set to killer music, a workout outside, a color run 5K..whatever it is that gets you excited for a workout will only be to your benefit!
4. Have music that gets you pumped. You'll train harder and won't be counting the minutes.
5. Reward yourself. Exercising consistently is an accomplishment even if it doesn't seem like it. Take time to recognize your achievements.
6. Positive thoughts. Spend time each day thinking about yourself positively. Did you just do 5 more reps than you did yesterday? Did you choose to workout instead of watch tv? Did you join a workout group? Whatever it is those are positive thoughts you should fill your mind with, stop beating yourself up!
7. Be consistent. Set a routine for yourself. Overtime, workouts just become a part of your day.

Have something to add? I'd love to hear what works for you!
