What a busy day! πŸ˜… Much β˜•οΈ was needed!


(You see that sweaty glow? 😍πŸ’ͺ)



Did you know that I am NOT a fan of not eating before bed time? I actually eat right before I fall asleep. During rest/recovery/sleep the muscle builds and it needs FOOD and NUTRITION to do so! What are some of your favorite healthy before bed snacks/meals? πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

Beyonce said it, not me 😏
4 reps…ima clean em up tho. Not too much worried about that. More so fascinated with how last year at this exact time I dropped this weight in the squat rack! I was embarrassed!

you know I run track, try not to get lapped,
people talking about Hov left em flat,
trying to rewrite history lets talk about that—-πŸ’

Morning! Where is the β˜•οΈβ˜•οΈ? 😏
Here’s an at home squat workout for legs, shoulders, and core for YOU to use! Don’t let not having a gym membership be an excuse not to be active!

I have my 8lb medicine ball I found cleaning out my trunk and I have my my back yard.

Squat plus press. Squat, abs tight, legs shoulder width apart, and chest up. As you stand up from the squat push the 8lb medicine ball. When it comes back down into your hands land already in a squat.

Repeat for 4X12-15 reps πŸ’ͺ

Be forgiving today ❀️πŸ’ͺ (at emariefitness)

Hiiiiii Monday πŸ’β˜•οΈπŸ’ͺ


Swear that raise the roof emoji is me on a typical day! Ask anybody! lol. 


How do I feel about shakes and powders as meal replacements?
•As a certified nutritionist and weight loss counselor, I have to be honest and say I do not believe in meal replacements. Can you create a smoothie with fruit and vegetables and protein powder with a fat like peanut butter inside and use it for breakfast? Yes! Something like this has real nutrition: fruits, veggies, protein, and fat! 
•What I do not believe in is replacing powders and shakes for multiple meals throughout your day. Having a protein shake post workout is one thing…but totally neglecting proper nutrition in take from real and solid food is a big mistake toward a healthier lifestyle. You are missing out on so much. Don’t spend your money purchasing all these companies diet shakes. Go to the grocery store! I’ll go with you! 
•Remember, nothing can replace the nutrition is a chicken breast or egg white or spinach. (Just examples)
•Eat REAL FOOD to be successful.

A Woman in harmony with her spirit
is like a river flowing.
She goes where she will without pretense and arrives at her destination
prepared to be herself
and only herself
