A different kind of breakfast today. So my day started super late here wlon social, but I couldn’t wait to share this one with you. [Tag a friend] Being creative with food is a hard task specially if you do not know how to eat. This is pure fuel. A breakfast that is not only plant based, but it’s delicious. Three slices of multi grain bread with half a hass avocado, 1/4 black beans, a measured tablespoon of cashew butter with a strawberry on top. What a flat tummy, great skin, energy, focus, and overall better composition? Well here’s an idea. Super easy to make and assemble. Add a little salt and pepper to the avocado. Later for a snack I had a plant based protein shake. I used about 1.5 scoops of my strawberry @tru_supplements Powder. I mixed in 1/2 cup frozen berries, and a teaspoon of maca powder. These are ideas that will help you so much and I hope you are taking notes. @mawarriors If you’re doing my lifestyle program, I hope you enjoy this one. There’s a lot of things happening in my life at the moment, so bare with me and read my posts. Sometimes being a mum can get really overwhelming and with being an entrepreneur, I don’t get to shoot everything. But I’m finding more balance and getting things a lot more organized to bring you guys better content. www.massyarias.com _______________________________________________________ Un desayuno diferente. Mi día comenzó súper tarde, pero no podía esperar para compartir idea con ustedes. [Etiqueta a un amigo] Ser creativo con la comida es una tarea difícil, especialmente si no sabes cómo comer. Este es un desayuno vegano y delicioso. Tres rebanadas de pan multigrano con medio aguacate pequeño, 1/4 de frijoles negros, una cucharada medida de mantequilla de anacardo con fresa. Quieres un estómago plano, buena piel, energía, concentración y una mejor composición corporal? Bueno, aquí está una idea. Súper fácil de hacer y ensamblar. Más tarde, para un refrigerio, tuve un batido de proteína. Usé aproximadamente 1.5 scoops de mi proteína de fresa @tru_supplements. Mezclé 1/2 taza de bayas congeladas y una cucharadita de polvo de maca. Estas son ideas que te ayudarán mucho y espero que tomes notas.

Hey #BBCSquad happy #HumpDay!!! Okay so here’s one of my favorite booty circuits! It was recorded last week and I was finally able to get the swipe to be on my side today lol. I love the slides because you get to see more of how I prep for the upcoming set and how I readjustment my body to make sure everything is aligned and good before lifting (especially since I lift heavy or do a lot of glute contractions) _______________ ✨ WORKOUT BREAKDOWN: ✨ 🍑 Elevated goblet squat pulses- the elevation helps you get deeper into the squat and even though you’re pulsing be sure to squeeze each time you come up 🍑Single leg elevated barbell between legs pulse squat – this BURNSSSSS (ask @official_janina or @lianev who tried it with me 😭) you stay low and each time as you’re coming up contract your glutes (I mean I am the queen of contraction 😉) 🍑 Smith machine deadlift pulses – lean back and contract your glutes as you lift up. 🍑Smith machine booty press – this strictly works your booty to help you get that booty meat. 🍑 Deep cable squats – when you push your hips forward slightly lean back. This is my favorite cable exercise and the burn is one I don’t mind at all! 🍑 Cable deadlift pulses – yes I LOVE A GOOD PULSE EXERCISE! This exercise really helps with the middle booty! 🍑 Wide elevated bridge thrusts/Single leg bridge dip 🍑Weighted stationary lunge kickout 🍑Stationary kettle bell squat step-outs ___________ All workouts from a #BodyByCookie workout program which are available on BodyByCookie.com (link in bio) – don’t wait any longer to build the booty of your dreams! #BBCSquad @bodybycookie • Thank you @official_janina & @ejking21 for recording all the vids!!! 💖
