Stick to your fitness goals with this easy low calorie and high protein dessert recipe!

Recipe~~~Light and Fruity Jello Yogurt Whip

Super high volume, high protein, and very low in calories.. oh yeah! This simple dessert or snack is a tasty way to help you adhere to a calorie deficit. This entire portion including the berries on top is only 100 calories and has 13g of protein! I also wanted to note that my 4 year old absolutely loved this. I had planned on sharing the recipe ages ago, but she ate it all before I could get a decent photo. So I had to make another batch. It ended up being a great way to get a little more protein in her meals too. Total bonus!

Fitness Tips

I’m now half my starting size. Tips for losing weight and keeping it off for good.

This week I have reached a big milestone on own my fitness journey. On the measure of scale weight I am now half my starting weight from where I was nearly 5 years ago at the birth of the preemie daughter. If my journey was only about losing weight however I don’t think I would of been nearly as successful. My journey was also about building muscle, increasing my strength, and gaining an understanding of how to enjoy delicious food while aligning it with my fitness goals at the same time.

My transformation has not been quick. But my results are lasting and they continue to improve over time.

Improving your body composition is a skill and an art form. You will get better at it over time with practice. My advice for getting and keeping your results.

Be Patient

Be Consistent

Train Hard And Smart

Trust the Process

If you make a mistake, learn from it and move on.

Fitness Tips

Include these 3 things in your diet to help you stay full and satisfied while on your fat loss journey.

Staying full and satisfied while eating in a calorie deficit? Is that even possible..?! It sure is with your food choices. Pictured are 3 of my favorite things to include in my meals when aiming for fat loss. We often think of big salads, and don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love big salads, but it’s nice to have plenty of options. Fresh fruit, a soup with lean protein and veggies, and sparkling water are my go to’s when I am dieting. If you find yourself having a really hungry day, enjoy all of these in one meal and for about 450 calories you will feel full for ages!
