Sunday brings smiling waffles. 😊👏🏻After much trial and error, I have finally perfected protein waffles!  And when I say protein - packed...
Macros - ***88 grams of protein, 64 net carbs, 16g fat.  Not bad eh?
Key things I learned from failed attempts:
1. Cuisinart waffle maker - put on medium heat, not too hot
2. Protein is key - this if from @livbody Cinnamon Coffee Cake.  It bakes well, and not all do.
3. Baking powder - key ingredient - about a tbs.
4. PB2 organic is life.  This has layers of peanut butter in between the waffles and on top. 
5. whole wheat flour - just 30g helps to make them fluffy.
And probably the best part...not one animal was touched to make this meal!
**Important note - everyone’s protein needs vary depending on fitness goals. I’m not suggesting that you need this much in one meal.  This is based on what my personal needs are at the moment to maintain muscle.  #veganbodybuilding #veganforlife#savetheanimals#savetheplanet🌍#livbody#fitover40#fitness#fitpro#fitforlife#bodybuildingfood#fitpro#nycfit#breakfastofchampions#eattolift#fitchicks#womenwholift#fitfam
As mentioned in a recent post, I love these products!  Proud to now be an Ambassador for @freskincare !🌱😊💪🏻.
Been using them for several months and have seen a tremdnous difference in my skin.  They are VEGAN & CRUELTY FREE and plant an argan tree for every 123 set sold to help the environment. 
Made for women who SWEAT!  So if you’re into fitness, hot yoga, runner etc, check them out.  They protect your skin by helping to prevent dehydration and breakouts, not to mention skin dammage and loss of elasticity if you workout outside.  Use my code (link in bio) for 40% off for 48 hours!!! If you’re not happy, easy...full refund.
Also, if you want to see my full routine (skincare & makeup) for day to day teaching, comment below and will share.

FRÉSkincare sent me products (123FRÉ) a few months ago to try them out and give an honest review. So here it is!
What I like about the brand's values that align with what is important to me:
FRÉ is #VEGAN and
#CRUELTYFREE
FRÉ plants an #argan tree for every 123 set purchased which helps our environment.
FRÉ showcases and admires and supports strong, active women.
What I like about the products:
*They fit my lifestyle. I teach and train several hours a day. They keep my skin fresh and I've noticed that if I wear the moisturizer underneath my makeup, even after several classes the makeup lasts. This pic is after teaching a class, my own lift session, plus yoga last night! (hence the crazy hair😉)
*My skin is maturing and protection is important. I've noticed my skin just feels supple and fresh. (I've gone through the entire bottles to test over the last few months!) I use the moisturizer, serum and facial wash.
What I was using before, and what I wear for makeup:
*Burt's Bees was my go to brand. All natural, extra hydration formula prior to trying FRE. Makeup for me is concealer, primer, eyebrow pencil, little bronzer and a bit of highlight, but not to the point of being a disco ball. (Those days are over😂). And of course...my lashes ladies...a go to daily.
I will be purchasing the moisturizer and serum again. The facial cleanser is great, but I still prefer my Burts Bees wipes as they are just faster at night.

One year ago today, I adopted little Pandora. Can’t believe a year has already passed. She has brought so much joy to my life. My first cat (grew up with dogs), so didn’t know what to expect. She is the sweetest cat and I feel 🍀lucky🍀 to have her. 🐾❤️🖤❤️🐾🖤🐾❤️🐾🖤
So on this St. Patty’s Day, Happy Birthday Pandora!
