Tasty Tuesday: Peanut Butter Energy Bites

It’s fun sharing simple recipes Ive enjoyed making. These are perfect little snacks to have when you are feeling like you need something sweet. Delish!

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 2/3 cup sweetened shredded coconut, toasted and cooled
  • Chocolate Chips to Taste

Mix Peanut Butter & Honey together first. Add Vanilla extract. Slowly mix the oats and coconut to cover everything and add the chocolate chips to your liking. I then chilled the dough for a little to make it easier to form into balls. (About a half hour). Then form into balls and place in a container and store in the fridge! Easy 🙂 These are so good to eat a couple before the gym or as a little afternoon snack.

These are so easy to throw together and can be varied to your likings. Once I’ve thrown in sliced almonds or pecans for a different texture. They would also be easy to press into bar form.

Motivation Monday

I can’t believe it’s the end of January! Didn’t it feel like we just started the new year and now here we are, almost February. One of the biggest questions is if your goals (or resolutions) are still in tact?

Errrr…it can be a easy to start to slowly let these things slip away from us isn’t it? I have fortunately been doing well with my business and blogging and I owe it a lot to working a little at a time.

—>Every week I write down (at least) 3 things I want to complete for the week in my planner. I then do something each day to help me stay organized on track. It’s really been a big help to me on accomplishing small things that will help me personally, and with my business.

For example my goals this week are:

1. Finish my meal planning document for clients.

2. Adjust any bootcamp plans that are needed (i.e., weekly scheduled workouts, create new cardio sessions).

3. Film more workouts for my boot camp and for instagram. 

I’ve been lucky that these little steps are helping me stay focuses and have been helping me to accomplish goals for the week. I was never good about writing things down before, but I’ve found it to be so helpful! Plus- who doesn’t love checking things off their list?

  • Are you still accomplishing your resolutions? What do you do to stay on track?
