healthy detox // sakara life 10 day reset

I’m not one to ever really need a super intense detox or diet. I try to live a healthy lifestyle all the time, which means tons of vegetables and moderate exercise (I love barre!), plenty of water, but also daily sweets (I’m addicted!). It’s all about balance, for real. While it’s possible to do it alone, I love finding products that can supplement this lifestyle of mine, and make things a bit easier for me- especially when I’m on-the-go. Sakara Life offers 100% plant-based, gluten-free and organic meal plans, snacks and supplements, delivered straight to your doorstep. How easy is that? You can basically think of them as your personal chef and nutritionist rolled into one. Founders Whitney Tingle and Danielle DuBoise created Sakara to help overcome personal health struggles, and were able to transform their lives using food as medicine. With a focus on nutrient-dense foods, healthy fats, sulfur-rich veggies, and NO calorie counting (among others), they intend to share these nutritional pillars of Sakara with as many people as possible.

Although I haven’t tasted their ready-made food just yet (I love cooking for myself too), I have gotten the chance to try their new 10 Day Reset. This box of goodies contains energy & detox bars, a daily probiotic blend, detox tea, beauty & detox water concentrates, and plant-based protein powder! Everything is plant-based, vegan, and gluten free, and packed full of healthy ingredients. These have been ideal for me to keep in my travel bag- I’m never without the nutrients my body needs while on-the-go. They also come in handy for supplementing my daily food at home, or for an extra snack between meals. I love using the Life Source protein powder in my morning smoothie, and the energy bars are the perfect afternoon pick-me-up! If you have trouble getting in your suggested daily glasses of water, sprucing them up with a few drops of beauty or detox water concentrates may help. Your skin will thank you for the extra dose of hydration! Everything in the box stays fresh for quite a while, so I suggest getting a 10 Day Reset for yourself ASAP to keep handy whenever you feel the need for a reset. You’ll get some pretty tasty recipes as well (think garlic tahini kale fritters and pulled butternut squash tacos with all the fixings), so you can actually look forward to detoxing the right way, and soon!

Today's workout focuses on the chest. While it's easy to focus most of your arm work in the triceps and biceps, it's important to work the chest muscles as well! It is the area that gets shown off when you wear a tank top, after all. Try to keep your neck and shoulders relaxed throughout this exercise- holding tension here doesn't help you! Instead, keep your arms lifted to shoulder height and your elbows wide so that you can effectively tone that tank top line! Do ten reps of each move, and repeat the sequence three times to get the chest muscles pumping!

Today's exercise focuses on your butt! I love it because while the focus is on your outer seat, it truly is a full body workout! This move requires some serious balance and core strength so that you can make slow and controlled movements targeting your tush! This is a great area to focus on when you want to give some nicely defined shape to your butt. The small, subtle movements really target your outer seat, helping to lift and tone throughout. Be sure to keep your core tucked in tight, and actively press your hand down into the ball for an extra challenge and added resistance!

Today's exercise focuses on outer thighs, which can be a frustrating area that many women find hard to tone. By standing with your feet wider than hip width, rising onto your tip-toes, and bending your seat down to knee level, this move really allows you to get to the core of your thigh work. Make sure you keep a straight back, long neck & relaxed shoulders as you move up/down. For an added challenge, you can raise your right arm straight up to the ceiling as you pulse. Once you get deep into this thigh sequence, your thighs will start to tremble & shake- but try not to come out of form! This just means your body is working hard & starting to change for the better!

get fit with britt // lower abs

Today's exercise focuses on the abs. People are always curious how I get such toned abdominal muscles, and it's definitely a body part I work hard at and am proud of. Pure Barre has a nice focus on core work, and this exercise is one in particular that is key to getting a flat & toned tummy. In addition, a strong midsection can help stabilize and protect your lower back, while giving you the bikini confidence you crave. Leg drops and leg raises create a challenging yet effective exercise, and holding the legs at your lowest point of control will have you really feeling the burn. Be sure to keep your lower back pressed into the ground the entire time for best results, and do 3 sets of 8-12 reps each.

Today's exercise focuses on the triceps. While we typically focus more attention on our arms in spring and summer, I like to keep them nicely toned year-round. Muscle definition is key, and this workout defines in all the right places! Make sure to keep your arms as straight as possible, even though it's easy to let them bend a bit once you start to get tired. Try to keep tension in the tube at all times too- you'll get better results this way! Do 10 repetitions of each movement, and repeat the sequence three times for a killer tricep burn.
