Why do I Love Fitness so Much?

I think often times we are so passionate about something, put so much energy into something, or talk about something so much, we forget that people will want to know why.

A friend of mine recently asked me, "Why do you love fitness so much?'.  I paused for a second and rather than answering with the standard, "I just do", really thought about why I choose to spend so much of my time interacting within the fitness community.  Whether it's me working out myself, looking at inspiring fitness photos/videos, talking to my friends, family, or strangers about fitness, I'm pretty consumed in the health and fitness world.

The Easiest Protein Smoothie | Pre or Post-Workout

If you're anything like me, you can relate to the feeling of being ravenous after a workout.  Give my body a good 30 minutes, and I'm ready to pull through the nearest drive-through and order everything on the menu.

I told myself that 2016 would be the start of healthier habits, and for me that starts in the kitchen.  I've found that as a woman it's easy to fall short on our protein requirements, and if you are training consistently (or, even if you are just looking to hit your nutrition goals), a good, old fashioned protein shake is an easy and quick way to get those extra grams in.
