Fun New Workouts

I’ve tried a couple of fun, new workouts this week and they are definitely good ones!

Monday, I tried the Cardio Tai Box 10 minute Fit Sugar workout

This morning I tried Amanda Russell’s 100 Burpee Workout and it’s awesome! I was sweating tons when I finished. She’s a pretty hardcore lady with lots of motivation! I love her Smile

I enjoy new workouts because they keep fitness fun and exciting. Doing the same old thing all the time? Try a new workout! Or a new activity. Go for a hike or something…which leads me to Spring Break…IT’S SPRING BREAK!

I’m going to be hiking sometime soon and will have an awesome post on the whole hike. Audrey LOVES hiking! I mean, reallllllly loves! ❤

Okay, the recipe I promised. This isn’t a magical, sweet brownie or anything…its more like a little muffin with no carbs that will satisfy your cravings. I really wanted to come home from my trip to Costco and eat something sweet. But I’m trying so hard to eat clean and be consistent.

So, here ya go.

No Carb Protein Muffins

  • 4 egg whites
  • 2 big tbsp. ground flax seed
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tbsp. stevia
  • 1/2 scoop protein powder
  • 1 tsp. unsweetened cocoa powder

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

After making them, I realized I probably should have put more cocoa powder and stevia…so you may if you would like.

Mix all the ingredients together. Spray 6 muffin tins, pour the batter. Put in oven for 10-12 minutes.
