Strength Training and Nutrition with BeFit!

I have been running.

A lot.

The Boston Marathon is in 38 days. I am down to 23 days of hard training before the taper begins.

Run, run, run.

I know that my running needs to be supplemented with proper nutrition as well as strength training to allow my body be in top shape for the marathon.
I need lots of protein to help repair my muscles after a hard workout. Healthy food like wild salmon, eggs, almonds, chocolate milk and greek yogurt are a big part of my diet.

There are times when I am rushing in the door from a workout and I need a quick and easy snack to refuel my body before I pick up my kids. Something to sustain me before I sit down to a proper meal is critical.
This is where Be Fit Protein powder comes in handy. I am able to whip up a quick and easy smoothie and take it on the go with me. I know my muscles are getting what they need AND it tastes delicious.

I love that it has zero artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners. It is also gluten free and GMO free.

I was sent the vanilla flavor to try and I made a delicious Orange Dreamsicle Shake.


1 fresh orange
1/2 cup of plain greek yogurt
1 scoop of Befit vanilla whey protein podwer
6 ice cubes

Blend together and voila! Smooth, creamy and delicious.

You can make so many delicious smoothies with the protein powder and it's also great for making pancakes!

Ingredients for the above berry smoothie:

1 cup of frozen mixed berries
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
1 scoop Be Fit Protein powder
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Blend and serve

Be Fit has a kick butt video series that will strengthen and tone with a mix of cardio and strength training moves. As a busy Mom of three young children, I don't have any  a lot of time to get out of the house for strength training classes. I do everything at home or outside right before or after a run.  I needed something easy and pretty quick as I already have a lot of exercises from my coach as well as from my physical therapist.

I have to say, the video series is pretty awesome! It's well choreographed, upbeat, fun and easy to follow the moves.

Punch it out for awesome arms!

The cool thing is they have 11 different videos to choose from (the above moves are from the cardio crush workout) - everything from dynamic strength training to toning abs and arms to a burning total body shred workout!
Befit also has a 30 day calendar to help keep you on track. You can do as much or little as you would like.

And of course I have something for you :)
