Don’t be an April Fool; Excuses we make for gaining weight.

I saw this poster and needed to share it.
The truth hurts, but sometimes, we all need a wake up call.  Excuses are like belly buttons…every body has one!

Your April Promise:

  • I will become who I should have been all along
  • I will give 110% when I workout
  • I will try something new
  • I will put my health first
  • I will remind myself that my goal is to be fit
  • I will eat right-No excuses
  • I will be stronger today than I was yesterday
  1. Start with doing what is necessary (show up to boot camp);
  2. Then do what is possible (push yourself) and;
  3. Suddenly you are doing the impossible!!

I was inspired by the snow (not really inspired but ugly about the snow) and decided to make a treat for the family.  It’s a twist on the classic “Snowballs” recipe that we always see around Christmas…yummy and healthy!

Protein Snow Balls:

  • 2 -3 scoops of vanilla boot camp protein
  • 1-2 cups of natural peanut butter
  • 1 cup of unsweetened coconut

Mix protein and pb together, (if it is too sticky add more protein / too dry add more pb.)
Make into little balls then roll in coconut–place in the fridge for 30 min to firm up.  You can moisten the balls with a little bit of water to help the coconut to stick.

*note* I made these with two 8 yr olds fighting over who could roll them–hence the non round shape

Someone you know being a cloud on a sunny day?? Hit them with this awesome taste of the tropics!!!

Mango Coconut Protein Shake

  • 1 scoop vanilla boot camp protein
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk or unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1/2-3/4 cup of frozen mango
  • couple of drops of coconut extract

Blend and enjoy!!!!!!!!




  1. Hi Carrie, After reading your blogs for a while now, I’m interested in knowing more about the protein powder you constantly mention. Please tell me how much it is and the size of the container. Thanks. Debbie

    1. Hi Debbie-thank you for taking the time to read my blog, I really appreciate it. I developed my own line of whey protein. I wanted something that tasted great and was nutritionally sound-no fillers, etc. We sell a 1lb container for $25–chocolate and vanilla. If you have any other questions–please let me know!!

  2. Thank you Carrie. I needed this blog post today. March was NOT a good month for me……..
    I will adopt all of the above April promises.
