I have a love-hate relationship with planks. Mostly hate. My problem is I’m really bad at doing planks so I rarely do them. And because I rarely do them, I never improve. It’s a vicious plank cycle. But I wanted to change this and actually start incorporating planks into my routine.
I have a complicated relationship with chia seeds. I’m not a big fan of them on their own on toast or in smoothies BUT chia seed pudding, on the other hand, is straight up magical.
In honor of Pi Day on March 14 (shout out to my fellow math nerds!) I decided to see if I could make an apple pie mug cake. And *spoiler alert* it’s delicious and surprisingly super easy to do.

In honor of World Book Day which recently passed on March 5, I thought I would share my favorite book from last year.

Let me start by saying that I love caffeine. I I honestly can’t function as a human without my cup of coffee in the morning and my subsequent cups of tea throughout the day. You know how people can get hangry without food? Well, that’s how I feel without caffeine.
Raise your hand if you like peanut butter! I could eat it by the spoonfuls. In honor of National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day on March 1 I decided to make some of my go-to protein filled peanut butter chocolate balls.
First of all: What is LISS? It stands for Low Intensity Steady State and is a type of cardio. It is generally not as high impact as HIIT, or High Intensity Interval Training. Both have their benefits. When doing LISS the goal is to be in the “fat burning zone”, or 60% of your max heart rate, for 30 minutes or more.
