Do you prep lunch boxes to take to work? 🥙
Pulses + plants 🌱 are an easy way to get a super cheap, super balanced meal... & they’re really filling. I always make this for dinner and take leftovers for lunch!
Tinned tomatoes and things like kidney beans, chickpeas etc are my kitchen cupboard staples, especially on busy week days, and there’s always enough left for a lunchbox too ☺️
It’s so easy - warm your tomatoes on the hob and add salt, pepper and spices to taste (I love a tsp of turmeric and a LOT of black pepper!) then add in your veggies (kale, spinach & sweetcorn need barely any time for example, courgette needs a bit more, carrot needs lots more! It’s great to use up whatever’s in your fridge, just time accordingly!) then when they’re almost done add your pulses of choice!
It’s a 1 pan meal. And I promise it’s cheap:
~tin chickpeas circa 60p
~tin of organic chopped tomatoes 90p
~carrots and kale £1.50 max
MAKES APPROX 3 MEALS’ WORTH which is £1 a meal, or if 2 portions worth - £1.50 per meal!
Cheaper than any pret lunch or ready meal 😘

ONE YEAR BBG ANNIVERSARY🎉 .
This time last year I decided to do the @sweat
12 week challenge and see how I went from there. Im not gonna lie it was tough. Going from only running at the gym once, max twice a week to committing to 3-5 workouts a week! .
There was weeks I had to re do because I didn’t finish, weeks I was sick, weeks my kids were sick, but finishing that 12 week challenge changed my WHOLE year! Because I had proved to myself that I wasn’t a quitter and I CAN do this!
36 weeks of BBG and 8 weeks of STRONGER done and I can’t wait to see what next year brings!! A HUGE thank you to this amazing BBG community! You guys rock! Especially the ladies iv tagged. It’s a strange but wonderful feeling to feel so much gratitude for someone you’ve never met, but I’m honestly so grateful to all of you 💖
On that note, the next sweat 12 weeks challenge is coming up!
Hop to it! 😉

Our Japanese inspired Sweatshirts!! 🤟🏽 glad out customers liked it. ♥️
nothin of real value to post ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Got to the gym and tried the new build from the sweat app and it’s cool 😎 💪!! Yeeeey!
Normally I only have time to workout at home; but I had a bit of time in my agenda at the office so I kicked myself and went down the gym.. and oh boy it was an amazing decision!! 😃
There is always more work to be done, but sometimes you just have to go and ‘sharpen the saw’ and recharge a bit; this will also make you more efficient and balanced on the long run..
After running Kiawah Island Half Marathon on Saturday, I couldn’t make it back home to North Carolina due to Winter Storm Diego. There was well over a foot of snow at my house! I decided to extend my weekend and headed to Myrtle Beach for a few days. It may have been chilly, but a chilly day at the beach is better than a snow day at home. I normally experience seasonal depression once the cold weather hits and it started earlier than usual this year. I’m miserable. It affects my motivation and my routine. I’m not myself during the winter. Fortunately, I had a few minutes of sun on my skin, sand beneath my feet, and views of the Atlantic Ocean while I worked out today. I don’t magically feel normal again but it definitely made me feel better. [Endorphins on the beach > beers on the beach] Now I’m back home and will be falling asleep listening to recordings of ocean waves for now. 🌊 Is it summer yet?
••||RECIPE: Healthy Chocolate Mug Cake||••
It’s not exactly pretty but tbh I’m surprised it survived the picture. @sbreland18
found it to be 😋 .
🌟1/4 tsp baking powder
🌟1 scoop chocolate protein powder (I chose my ice cream salad ;) ) 🌟1 TBSP sweetener of your choice (I used stevia in the raw)
🌟Dash of salt
🌟 1 dollop of all natural peanut butter (I choose smuckers brand) — just peanuts and salt! 🌟1TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder
🌟2-3 TBSP water
1. In a mug mix chocolate powder, baking powder, salt, cocoa, and sweetener
2. Mix in an egg and 2-3 tablespoons of water
3. Continue mixing until dry and wet ingredients are well mixed
4. Take your dollop of peanut butter and push it into the middle of the batter
5. Microwave for 60-90 seconds
||You'll know it's done when the edges pull from the sides||
Let me know if you try it! #mugcake #easyrecipes #nutritional
I just completed @whitneyysimmons
full body workout that she posted on YouTube today.. and let me tell you.. ending a full body workout with JUMP SQUATS?!?! My legs are pure jello!! ☠️
Badly injured back but I have all I need tonight ❤️ Family, watching Elf, my heating pad and lots of puppy snuggles! 🎄🐶💕
New super blonde hair, almost a stone down and feeling a lot fitter - so ready for 2019😻
one of the things i look forward to most on these winter days is getting hot and sweaty with the @sweat
the best part? the app has everything you need. from resistance workouts to yoga, meal prep planning and recipes, and my favorite -the progress tracker! check out the link in my bio to give it a try today and let’s sweat together 💧 #hbtsp #hbtsweat
Yesterday my body just needed a rest day, my muscles were so sore I couldn’t imagine going to the gym and that’s ok, we need to know that we can’t be 100% all the time and we sometimes don’t eat as well as we should but hey we are all human and beating yourself up about it won’t help at all, how you speak to yourself is so important, this is something I have so much trouble with, but I wake up everyday and try again, Happy Thursday and remember you can do this💪🏻💚
||TAKE SOMETHING OUT|| So I’m actually looking forward to all my up coming plans (Christmas Shark 🦈 ho ho ho 🎅🏻) . But I did actually take some stuff off my to list 🧚🏻♂️ I was making a list and just crumpled it up (living on the edge) 🥳. Seriously does gift bags really require a special trip to the shops? No! So instead I decided tomorrow I’m ditching the trolly dolly dash and popping Bebe in her carrier and going for a stroll instead 🥰 #adventchallenge @iammelwells @theselflovesummit
with 15kg in each hand (30kg total).That might not be heavy for most guys and fitness girls but , damn it was heavy for me ! I started off with 5kg back in the day! You keep at stuff, be consistent , show up, put the work in , AND YOU WILL PROGRESS! I mean I never thought I could do this but it’s one my fav exercises. Also I was breathing real hard , you just don’t know it ! #keepgoing #progress #workoutvideos
1 large rectangular piece (or 2 squares) Graham cracker: 59 calories
Lite cool whip: 20 calories for two tablespoons
79 calories dessert to curb a sweet tooth? I’ll take it!
I make these on a regular basis. I’ll use all the graham crackers and make a ton of “ice cream sandwiches” ahead of time, wrap them up and freeze them for later use!
It’s funny that this simple snack brings back a lot of memories and lessons from when I was little. My mom was constantly on the go with six kids, all of us being about a year and a half apart. Me, being the fifth child, was always on the go with her in the car either picking someone up from soccer practice, a friends house or school. She would whip two of these out of the fridge so we could snack on them as we made our various trips. I ended up enjoying these more than the real store bought ice cream sandwiches! I felt special that my mom made them just so we could snack on. Little did I know that she had been going to weight watcher meetings and got the idea from there! It wasn’t until 4 years ago that I asked her where she got this idea and she spilled the beans. There are always two sides to every story. Here I was, little 7 year old Rachel just feeling special I got to eat these with my mom, not knowing they were “healthier” or low calorie. I didn’t even know what calories were 🤣 not until high school. My mom on the other hand never had time for herself. She made efforts in small ways to lead a healthier lifestyle even with the chaotic life of raising six children. This was her trying to curb her sweet tooth, maintain a healthy lifestyle while giving all of herself to her kids.
What I got out of this is that although my mom was constantly split taking care of six kids (I feel split with two at times) she managed to make each of us feel special. Even if it was just grabbing some homemade “health-ish” ice cream sandwiches out of the freezer to snack on a car ride.
I’ve slowed the vid Right down and cut it short so you can see my progress with #pullups
💪🏼💪🏼 I’m so freakin proud of myself for getting here. Gotta build up my strength here then I’m SANS BAND 🙏🙏 #bringiton #iloveachallenge
Not even two weeks into my 12 week program and I'm already feeling tight. I'm loving this progress. 💪🏼 Stay tuned, because if this one is good, I might just be making it available for you all!
Got after it today. Everything is already sore... I’m sure it’ll be worse tomorrow 😵 we put our gigantic burritos and wine from last night to use #gainzzz
went for a run this am for the first time in a looooong time. and i’ll tell you something, it sucked. royally. it was hard, i felt winded 10 minutes in, and the self defeating thoughts started kicking in—“im slow. i feel heavy. my legs are burning. maybe i should stop eating so many of the treats i make (oh wait, nope, not happening 😂). i run on treadmills a lot, why am i dying outside. i’m just tired.” and then i thought about stopping, walking back to my car, and going home. i think it’s really important to listen to our bodies — intuitively — and give it what it’s asking for, but in order to do that we need to be HONEST with ourselves first. are we making excuses because something is hard and we are feeling lazy and/or not in the mood to experience the discomfort? or, are we truly tired and in need of a rest day. there’s a difference. the former will keep us from reaching our goals, whether fitness related or otherwise. the other one will help us achieve them because it takes more restraint to know when to stop, rest, and recover so we can ultimately rebound stronger. today i recognized that i was just making excuses; so i slowed my pace, finished the damn thing and was proud of myself for not giving up. the next time you are feeling UGH in the middle of your workout, ask yourself if you looking for the easy way out or just need to take a day off. if the former, push though it. you are just one sweat away from a good mood! #kalejunkie
