Tips to Maximize Recovery After a Workout

So you had an amazing workout…now what? Post workout recovery is just as important as the workout itself and sticking to the right habits can not only speed up recovery but also maximize gains. I have perfected a ritual that helps with my recovery time, so here are some tips to maximize recovery after a workout. 

Have Premier Protein Shakes after your workout for a post-workout boost.

Premier Protein’s shakes have 30g protein and they taste so good, it’s hard to believe they’re good for you! I’ve been drinking Premier Protein Cookies & Cream Shake or Premier Protein Peaches & Cream Shake after my workout and both have been a motivating treat! I know they’re low in sugar and high in protein, so it’s really a no-brainer to include it into my daily routine. I also love how Premier Protein can be enjoyed for breakfast or a snack or a post-workout treat. A tip here is to take it along and have it ready when you need it. I leave my Premium Protein treat in the fridge at work so I can grab it to go on my way to the gym.

Chambray Rompers for the Spring

Favorite fabric for the spring/summer? Chambray of course…or linen, or seersucker; ok, ok, I like all spring fabrics. So in the warmer months, I’m always looking for breathable fabrics that work well in high heat and humidity. Chambray definitely falls into this category. So, when I saw this adorable chambray romper with ruffles and a deep v-neck, I knew it was perfect for the season. If I’m being completely honest, my small-chested self was kinda self-conscious in this revealing romper. The neckline is way outside of my comfort zone, but I went with it and started to love the details. So cheers to getting outside of that imaginary box, because it usually works out well!

La Vida es Bella + Favorite Graphic Tees

When you think about a casual spring weekend outfit, what comes to mind? For me its either the white denim + cute graphic tee + comfy flats combo or workout clothes; so basic right?! What I love about graphic tees is, they’re a quick and simple way to get a fun message across. There are countless times when I see a graphic tee and just think…wow, it doesn’t get more relatable than that. Take this one, for example, it means Life is Beautiful and when I tell someone that, it just brings a smile to their face. Finding clothing that evokes positive emotion is always a win in my book.

Beige Clothing Pieces for the Spring

We all know that blush is a hot color in the spring and all year round. But recently, I find myself in love with beige clothing pieces more and more. The neutral color is warm, inviting, and super flattering. It slims, elongates and just looks great on everyone. Since beige is the neutral of neutrals it also pairs well with almost everything. New favorite color?! I think so!
