Thoughts for July…

by in Beachbody, Fitness, Food & Nutrition July 1, 2014

My kids got out of school 3 weeks ago today! Summertime is flying by and we are having a blast; but the past 3 weeks have been a whirlwind and I am ready for some “downtime” in July;  some weekends and weekdays with “no plans.”

In between camps and my crazy schedule, we are enjoying later mornings, relaxing by the pool and at the beach, spending time with family & friends, cooking up some new recipes…

Protein Pancakes!Here are the protein pancakes that Kendall and I made this past Sunday morning.

  • 3 whole eggs
  • 1 1/2 scoops vanilla protein powder (I used Proventive Harmonized Vegan Protein)
  • 1/2 cup oats (ground in Magic Bullet)
  • 5-6 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Top with TONS of delicious organic berries!

Many of you may be reading this because I was supposed to start the Beachbody 3 Day Refresh yesterday.


So, here is the truth…I looked at my calendar and thought that it would be a better idea for me  to begin after the holiday weekend coming up this weekend. I know that I will be enjoying good food, drinks and time with friends and come Monday, July 8th I will definitely feel like I need to REFRESH!

BUT, I will tell you that I have looked over the program thoroughly and I am REALLY excited to start and feel the results.

Is there a time coming up in your life that you feel a REFRESH would be good for you?

Maybe you are experiencing…

  • low energy
  • extra weight from summer fun 🙂
  • food cravings
  • poor sleep

If so, this refresh may be just the thing for you!  and it’s only 3 days. Comment or contact me if you have any questions.

One more thought for the start of this month….

I spend most of my time through the “school year” and into the summer reading quite a bit!  However, almost all of my reading is health & wellness related or a personal and/or business development books. I want to know, what are YOU reading this summer? What is a great book for a summer read?  Share in comments so we can all get some new reading suggestions for this summer!

love to readMake the most of the rest of your week!
