Weight Loss Zumba Workout, Yummy Smoothie Recipe, and Chocolate Soap Giveaway

31 Jan

Hey everyone!  I just had a great workout this morning, and wanted to share some fitness tips with you that I’ve recently started up again.  : )  As you probably know, I started two businesses a year ago, (an organic beauty company and a Preschool) and got super busy – so busy that I didn’t always have time for my daily Zumba workouts anymore.  😦  When I had my first baby, I lost 80 pounds doing 1 to 2 hours of Zumba a day, so I’m back at it again!  🙂  (…Not trying to lose 80 pounds, just getting back to my beloved Zumba.)  🙂


So here is the recipe for the breakfast that I have most mornings: one boiled egg with salt and pepper, and a Yummy Berry Smoothie: (blueberries, strawberries, half a banana, pineapple, apples, and tangerines.)  (A quick tip to preserve fruits is that anytime my kids or I don’t eat all of our fruit, or if fruit is starting to get too ripe, I throw it in a tupperware in the freezer.  That way, fruit NEVER goes to waste, and you get your full money’s worth.  🙂


For my favorite Zumba workouts, I started a Fitness youtube channel – feel free to subscribe to it, as I’ll be adding more fitness videos, smoothie and Nutra Bullet recipes, and natural health videos.  I have started doing this workout playlist every day – usually around 9 p.m. to relax after a long day, and sometimes my kids even do some of the workouts with me – their favorite workout is “Animals” b/c they recognize the song from when Daddy watches football.  🙂

I hope that helps!  If you have any fitness or health tips or videos, please share in the comments below! 🙂 I will also choose one lucky winner to receive a FREE chocolate organic soap from my Lauren’s Lathers Organic Beauty line – just comment on the facebook blog post or in the comments below telling why you’d like to win!

    I’d love to win the soap because there’s nothing like high-quality, organic cleansers to pamper skin – especially in the winter!

    I’d love to win because I’m always looking for low cal chocolate (and zero cal chocolate soap is even better)!
