BREAKFAST: Almond Milk Berry Protein Smoothie

Four times at the gym this week…and counting!

I have said it before, and I am sure I will say it again, but it is time for me to get back in shape. Our upcoming trip to Maui I think has been the swift kick in the arse that I needed!

I have slowly been easing myself into a gym routine. I have found that after a long day at work, the last place I want to be is the gym. When I get home, I want to change into comfortable clothing, make dinner and sit and relax on the couch. Instead, I have been waking up extra early to work out before going to work. While it has not been easy, I definitely feel like I have more energy throughout the day. That may be as a result of the workout, my almond milk berry protein smoothie or my new North Detail smoothie tumbler. Who knows?! All I know is that the light at end of the tunnel of every workout is a smoothie and this one is definitely a winner! Scroll down for the recipe.

My adorable new tumbler is now on sale for $8.40 and it comes with free shipping! It definitely brightens up my mornings.

    Good for you for easing back into the gym!! I had stopped working out after some thyroid/health issues but Courtney has helped me add fitness back into my life little by little each week. I started working with her April 1 and now almost 3 month later I am the strongest that I’ve ever been! Her workouts are 20-30 mins and so much fun – I look forward to them every morning. You should check her out @ http://courtneyvioletbentley.com – she’s launching a new program that is only $10 a month, plus she’s the sweetest person and will be your biggest cheerleader! PS – I also love that coconut/almond milk, isn’t it SO good?!

    That looks delicious. I need to be better about going to the gym myself (only averaging about 2-3 hours a week right now and usually like to do 4). The diet though is another story. Thanks for the motiviation!

    Loving all of this! I agree with you about a morning workout. Hard to get up for, but worth it and does create more energy for the day! My goal is also to get back into this routine as I near the start of the school year. On another note, this smoothie looks really good and I will have to try! Loving this tumbler as well! Can you say #motivation?

    I am all about the morning workouts too! Night time I make a ton of excuses not to go so I gotta get it done early. This smoothie looks great! Can’t wait to follow along on your trip soon 🙂
