Hi all! Winking smile
Just want to start off by saying HAPPY BIRTHDAY to KELLY OLEXA!
I posted about her yesterday, check it out
here!

so today is #MIRRORLESSMONDAY
& I’m proud of my strength that I’ve built to POWER me through my workouts!

Remember, today is about looking in the mirror and being proud of what you see,
not judging every imperfection because there is no “perfect” body but there
can be a “perfectly” healthy body that you see in the reflection!

I am loving these work outs lately!
I feel like I am getting such a great work out in a short amount of time! Winking smile

Now onto one of my FAVORITE POWERFOODS!

KALE

Consider eating more KALE!
Along with broccoli, it is one of the nutrition stand-outs among vegetables.
It fights fat through its ability to mingle in a variety of roles —
in side dishes, combined in main dishes, blended in smoothies,
salads, or mixed in POWERCAKES! For a green, kale is unusually high in fiber.

This helps create the bulk you need to fill you up and to keep you full for a good amount of time!
Kale is also an excellent source of nutrients, especially vitamin A and calcium.
With a combination of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients, kale is a dieter’s dream POWERfood!

my #powermeal today post leg workout was kale, onions, & broccoli cooked down then 6 egg whites added with DILL! (eggs+dill=winning combo!) then I had my version of  “sweet potato pie” (yam, coconut oil, cinnamon, & some raisins!) great way to refuel with protein, healthy fats, & complex carbs!

Hope you enjoy your day!
xoxo
