Happy Sunday! I hope you’ll had an amazing weekend 🙂
I’ve been getting lots of questions lately about how I got started with my Instagram and Blog, so I decided to finally share with you how everything started and my life changing story with you’ll 🙂
THE OLD SHEINA
Growing up I was always a tall “skinny” girl. I started playing volleyball when I was 8-years old and my life was always about volleyball practices, laps around the gym, workouts, agility trainings, and tournaments. LOVED every second of it!
Even though I was an athlete for almost my entire life, my eating habits were not the best. Cookies, soda, candy and fried foods were big part of my daily eating routine. The years went by and in 2009 I received a full-schorlaship to come play college volleyball in a Junior College in Liberal, KS. When I first arrived in the United States I was overwhelmed by all the food options, and how much cheaper they were compared to Brazil. Even practicing 5 days a week for approximatly 3 hours a day, by end of November I had gained a little over 10 LBS (can’t remember for sure).
Hope you are having a great week so far and are enjoying the warmer days in KC.
It’s been a long time since I last posted here… But now that my MBA classes are over, I will have way more time to blog! Anyone else excited for Summer? I definitely Am!
Now, lets talk about Skin Care! Few weeks ago I did a pool on my Instagram Stories asking if you guys would like to know more about my skin care routine and for my surprise, most of you voted YES… So, here it is!Read More »
HAPPY WEDNESDAY! If you know me well enough, you know how much I LOVE going grocery shopping. I always look forward to go to the grocery store, and I like to take my sweet time when buying my groceries. If I need to hurry up at the store, I don’t even go! And fun fact, […]
Happy Tuesday!!!! As most of you know, I’m one of the Brand Ambassador for the local business CityShape Fitness, and I love seeing what it is doing for our community. CityShape has given me the opportunity to get know different studios around KC, to try new workouts (I even did my very first hot yoga class), and most importantly, […]
Hello Hello!! As you know Valentine’s Day is coming up next week, can you even believe it? It is one of my favorite holidays to celebrate as it is filled with so much love, hearts, and flowers everywhere we go. However, it can become very expensive and stressful when we make fancy dinner reservations at over-crowded […]
Hope you had a great week and is ready to enjoy the weekend!!
Since I’ve came to the U.S. I noticed that “energy balls” are much more popular here than it is in Brazil, and I have been eating them a lot more than I was used to. So guess what happened? Now I am addicted to them and decided to come up with my own recipe so I can have whenever I want 🙂
My PB Dark Chocolate Energy Balls are total success at the house (even Thiago likes them) and they’ve became my favorite pre-workout snack w/ a cup of coffee of course!
Chocolate – Peanut Butter ENERGY BALLS
60g chopped dates
6 tbsp natural peanut butter
1 cup (dry) old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup ground flex seed
1 scoop de whey de baunilha
60g dark chocolate chips (I used the 60% one)
1 tbsp honey
Directions: Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. Cover it up and place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Once chilled, roll it into small balls and ENJOY! ** It makes about 16-17 balls.
My week has been great and going at full swing. Spring break is over and now I am back to my master’s classes. Today I want to share these two recipes that I love and are so easy to make! I don’t know about you guys, but I like to change it up from time to time, I get tired of having scrambled eggs almost everyday so I tried these recipes in the past few weeks.
They are delicious, a healthier choice and can be made in no time! What else do we need, right?
BAKED SCRAMBLED EGGS
5 egg whites
1/4 cup skim milk
2 slices 97% fat free Canadian bacon (chopped)
1 cup baby spinach
chopped bell peppers (optional)
1/2 tomato (chopped)
1/2 onion (chopped)
1/2 cup low fat sherred cheese
In a medium bow, beat the eggs, egg whites and skim milk, when done set aside. Add the remaining ingredients, mix it well and transfer to a coconut oil greased pan. Place the pan in a preheated oven at 400F for around 20min and ENJOY. TIP: It can be served as breakfast with fruits and toast or even as lunch/dinner with a side o salad.
EGG and SPINACH BREAKFAST WRAP
1 whole wheat tortilla wrap
2 boiled egg whites (chopped)
1 boiled egg (chopped)
2 tbsp cottage cheese
Baby spinach to taste
Pink salt to season
In a bowl mix the egg, egg whites, cottage cheese and salt until it turns to a thick paste. Now, warm up the tortilla wrap in the microwave or on the stove-top, top it with the egg paste and add the spinach. Roll it tightly and ENJOY!
