Remember when you were a teenager, and you had your first breakup? It felt like the sky was falling, right? And like you’d never be able to live another day without your boo back in your life?
Well…that feeling is still pretty sucky even as an adult.
Fortunately, you’re older and wiser than you were back then. You know life goes on, and you know that your health and well-being is important for your happiness.
Alas, every breakup you experience is a tough pill to swallow. And we, as humans, tend to go on a bit of an unhealthy spiral when it happens.
Allow us to be the friend who tells you to put down the pint of double fudge ice cream! Today, we’re going to give you some tips on how to beat the breakup binge and stay on track with your health goals.
You work out because you…
…want a six-pack of abs to show off…
…want a killer upper body for the beach…
…want to lead a healthier life…
Listen, it’s always great to come home from a tough sesh at the gym, look yourself in the mirror, and see your muscles begin to bud into form.
Better than that is the feeling of being healthy. Ain’t that the best?!?
Those are the main benefits you get from working out, but did you know that fitness is SUCH a bargain that you get some—shall I say—extra benefits as well?
Here are a few things you might not have realized you were getting out of your fitness routine!
Are you ready to feel the burn? Ready to get those muscles moving like they’ve never moved before? If you’re feeling the burn during this exercise, then that means it’s working!
In just a little over 15 minutes, you can get a full body workout that aims to sculpt and tone those muscles, and burn fat off your body.
You’ll be using dumbbells for this workout to up the intensity and build muscle definition. Use whatever weight is most comfortable for you! If you don’t have dumbbells at home, feel free to use any object that holds some weight (i.e heavy books, water bottles, etc.)
Wait…”healthy”, “gluten free”, and “chicken nuggets” all in the same sentence?
That’s right! This chicken nugget recipe is low in calories, carbs, fat, AND it has a healthy dose of protein!
Compare that to its MSG, sodium laden counterpart, we’d say you’re getting a pretty good deal.
What better way to combat the junk food cravings than by making healthy versions of your favorite goodies!?
Not sure about healthy chicken? Just wing it!
It’s time for another scrumptious serving of salmon…in a salad!
Today’s protein-rich meal is garnished with crip greens, corn, peppers, cheese, and avocados for a flavorful filling of veggies! This meal is easy on your health AND your taste buds!
To top it all off, we’ve added a little Santa Fe seasoning blend to give the salmon that extra “oomph” of flavor!
No greasy chicken skin. No fried anything. Just well-prepared salmon and salad—that’s all you need for an amazing, wholesome meal!
