Get Fit & Happy! Here is one of my favorite #fusionworkout with #kettlebell that will challenge your balance, flexibility and strength. If you don’t have a kettle bell you can do these moves just as easily with a dumbbell so grab your equipment and move with me today!

Its ideal to have a solid 30-45min to workout without the distraction of our babes but we all know that some days we're just not going to get that alone time. Thats how is was for me yesterday:) We can still get a workout in with our little ones around and yes, our efforts, even when we're stopping to say, “Hey, get off the counter, you know you’re not allowed up there!” still count. 👉The only bad workout is the one that didn’t happen, so grab your dumbbells and get a few moves in. You may have to break up your workout up into 2, 15-20min intervals done at different parts of the day and thats ok too! I did that a lot during my son’s first year and it fit my schedule wonderfully. Just keep moving ladies.💃We’re setting a great example for our kids by teaching them to value their health and we’ll be better mom’s to them because of the energy we’ll gain from exercising regularly. #workoutwednesday #fusion #workoutwithkids #fitgirls_inspire #homeworkouts_4u #gym_videos #fitnesspageforall #fitgirlsvideos #instafit #fitmom #fit_moms_of_ig #fitfam #girlsthatworkout #girlswithmuscle #sheworkzout #gymvideos #yoga.moms

I headlined the NC Health & Fitness expo this weekend and meet a lot of cool fellow fitness phene’s and tried a lot of great products too.  One of my favorite things was a homemade chocolate protein ball and I had to get the recipe because it was actually good!  You know what I mean when I say that, most homemade protein bars, balls, muffins, pancakes, and more taste horrible.  Dry, chalky texture with lackluster taste, its not good!  Not to mention the protein and money I waste while trying these recipes, uh drives me nuts!  But not these protein balls.  They’re not a waste of my money and they’re so convenient to have around the house to grab before or after a workout.  Here’s the recipe, hope you like them as much as I do!

Chocolate Protein Balls

Chocolate Protein Balls

  • 1/2cup chocolate protein powder (I use vegan, Perfect Fit protein)
  • 1/2cup oats
  • 1/4cup coconut flakes
  • 1/2cup organic peanut butter
  • 1/4cup honey
  1. Mix dry ingredients together.
  2. Put peanut butter and honey in the microwave for about 30sec and stir to combine.
  3. Add dry ingredients to wet and combine thoroughly.  Then form mixture into 1″ balls.
