It’s a start to a new week and time to get back in the regular routine. Getting back into the regular flow however doesn’t always have to be boring…
I had yet another sleepless night with my brain going 100 km/h nonstop. To cure my zombiness this morning, I figured why not shake things up and have ice cream for breakfast! Yup…you heard me. Ice cream is the ultimate cure for anything!! This morning for breakfast I made myself some delicious vanilla protein waffles accompanied by a generous sweet and smooth scoop of mango ice cream. The best part is it that is was so good for you too, packed with more protein, fiber, and vitamins than any average waffle…never mind the ice cream! Here’s the recipe posted below.

Today I am also posting my lower body strength training I do twice a week, modified so you would only need one piece of equipment: a barbell. It is a killer workout, super quick and the best part is that since I started doing it, I have noticed substantially more muscle tone in my glute, quad, and calf muscles.
Have A Wonderful Week
