1/2 @fiberone cinnamon coffee cake
And 30g of raspberries just for fun (Recipe taken from @pancakeguru 🙂)
Day offs mean adventures, self pampering, and pure bliss. Last week I put roughly 75 hours at work and I throughly enjoyed my day off 😂
My mom and I tried a local Korean BBQ place that we have been wanting to try for years. I ordered the chompang which is a spicy seafood stew. It was pretty good but they added the muscles in way to early so they were chewy and not my favorite. The octopus and shrimp were spot on though!
Sue knew our system was the real deal when she was able to accomplish all of her health and fitness goals.

#tbt to years back and how our office started. We had a great time meeting so many health conscious people as we traveled all over central Florida with our #bodpod Now that we've grown into an office we still hope to see old faces and meet new ones that share our same love for health and fitness!
Let's talk about #mealprep 👋🏼 Most days this summer I have had to bring all 3 meals plus snacks with me to work... the life of a busy bee 🐝🤦🏽♀️
This can make it MUCH harder to choose healthy options unless you PREPARE yourself 👩🏽🍳
I always make sure I have all of my food made/organized at least the night before. Here are some products I love & food I find easy to prepare:
•My @nicolemillernyc lunch tote is the perfect size for all of my food needs 👜
•My @blenderbottle never leaves my side and is mostly filled with water or green tea 🍵
•Overnight oats are my go to breakfast!
Put 1 cup of oats into a mason jar/Tupperware, fill with water (just enough to reach all of the oats), add in berries, nuts, seeds, etc (pictured here is mixed berry & dark chocolate!) and let soak overnight 🍏🍌🍒🍓
•Snacks: I usually go for nuts 🥜, homemade trail mix, fruit, or veggies & hummus 🥒🥕
•Lunch is always random but I go for something lighter like a salad or veggie wrap 🥗🌯
Today's lunch consists of what I had left in my fridge 🤷🏽♀️ 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (plain=less sugar!) and 1 serving of homemade granola*
•Dinner is protein & veggies! 🍗Tonight's is a super simple/delicious garlic & herb chicken, broccoli, and mushroom stir fry 👅
*LOVE homemade granola because I control what goes in it! I chose:
2 cups oats
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup almond slivers
Mix those ingredients with:
2 tbsp coconut oil
1-2 tbsp agave
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Bake at 300° for 20 min and voila 🤗
Makes 4-6 servings
Happy meal prepping, I hope you find these ideas useful 🙂 #elliebfit
I thought I'd share these pics to highlight a snippet of my fitness journey.... from loosing weight initially over a number of years to discovering strength training and gaining muscle 💪🏼 I'm still on that journey and eating more than ever! Girls, never be afraid to eat when your focus is to build muscle! My goal is def to gain as much strength and muscle as possible 🍑 (booty gains ofcourse) I'm currently doing this using the #strengthfeed guide 💛
If you're interested in the macros and training I'm doing right now then check out my blog for the post I put up last week ⌨️💖

So I switched to fast reverse this morn. As of today I've gained a whopping 1 pound during 6 weeks of reverse dieting. Body fat has actually gone down. My calories have now increased by 300 per day. And most importantly, for me, is that my lean body mass is increasing. Which means muscle is actually forming pretty steadily. I am beyond thrilled with what Avatar Nutrition has done for me.
Before I started, I was unaware that I was eating roughly 1100 calories per day. My skin was dull. My nails brittle. My hair dry and lacking shine. My joints ached. I had no energy, barely slept, and couldn't focus. Sure I was still technically "skinny". But I was skinny fat. I was malnourished but had no idea.
Now I thrive on a full nights sleep. My nails grow for the first time in my life. My hair is out of control healthy. My skin is clear of any sign of rosacea for the first time ever. My lifts have improved beyond revognition. And I don't feel limited. I eat ice cream pretty much every night, can drink wine and scotch, eat fried chicken and pasta, and eat the amazing produce from my farmers market. I can do anything. I can live life better through proper nutrition. This literally not a diet. It's a lifestyle. And I'll be doing this for life.
5am training sesh. From an early morning fit chick to a 8 hours day job, personal trainer in the evening and Mom/Wife at night. I've worked too hard to get here. This is a lifestyle not a hobby. #motivation#noexcuses#earnednotgiven
Wake up. Drink water. Make tea. Read. If you really know me you know that before I changed my lifestyle I would wake up, chug a pop(or 2) and eat whatever I could get my hands on that I didn't have to MAKE. This would lead my body to a sugar crash a couple hours later and I'd wonder why I'd have no energy. Me next step would be to purchase 3/4/5 energy drinks to make it through the day. I avoided tea because I had "tried" it once or twice and hated it. I literally just tried it once as hot and once cold and never tried adding anything(honey, cinnamon,etc). Small changes and actual effort I now am I tea fanatic and drink it first thing in the morning with a small amount of raw unfiltered honey, cinnamon, and a dash of apple cider vinegar. I also drink just a hot tea blend for bed(called night night tea). This lifestyle change has increased my energy levels, saved my body from sugar crashes, fights bloating, and has built my immune system. Just small choices I made and my body is getting results I WANT and has my body feeling 💯more energized throughout my entire day. We sometimes use the excuse "I tried this and it doesn't work" but where we actually trying or just tried once and it didn't instantly happen so we gave up. Every moment of your day you have a choice. Making healthier ones reap so many long term benefits for your body, mind, and health. Make choices and give things 💯! Does this sound like you? Girl, let's chat! I feeel youuuu! I can help; all you have to do is say HELLO👋🏼👋🏼👋🏼
