Who else has been fighting off a cold, or feeling super exhausted and run-down? I have been hit with the flu bad! Over the last few weeks I’ve been busy with travel, work, and all things “life” related. As much as I have been loving every second, it has taken a HUGE toll on my body.

The months are starting to get warmer and that means one thing… Time to get those peaches to the beach!!! Y’all know how much I loveeeee Summer! I am pretty lucky here in Miami that we have warm and dry winters. Which really makes it summer year long round!

This week we chatted with one of my beautiful WBK ambassadors, Emily, about her love for yoga, how she fits it into her WBK workout schedule, why she recommends it to others and the best way to get started.

Y’all know how much I love taking a gym selfie! I think that most people see it as a vanity exercise, but one of the top reasons I have always loved to take a selfie is to track my progress and also be damn proud of what I have achieved.

There are so many exciting things coming for WBK in 2019! My new swimwear line will be launching in February and you know I’ve got another fire challenge coming your way! So I thought I’d gift you babes with a little sneak peek of one of the workouts from my next 8 week challenge that will be available exclusively through my WBK App!

I hope you all were spoiled by your loved ones over the holidays and got to spend quality time with the special people in your life! Now that the holidays are done, it’s got me thinking about New Years Resolutions and how good 2019 is going to be.

As 2018 is winding up it’s got me looking back on an amazing year Workouts By Katya has had! I feel so blessed to be able to reach all of my #wbkgirls in every corner of the globe, and truly appreciate every single one of you! I have spent the year hustling towards a better version of myself and I took a few moments recently to look back on some of the highlights for Workouts By Katya in 2018.

Macros Part 3: Fat Facts

Gone are the days when we believed that fat was the cause of weight gain and health problems. We now know so much better than to think eating fat in our foods led to being fat. But understanding fat still isn’t quite this simple, so I want to break down the details about the third macro for you, so you can take charge of your nutrition!

Katya’s Christmas List

What will I be asking Santa for this Christmas? Many people who follow a plant-based diet do so for ethical reasons. This means it can be a little tricky buying presents for a vegan who’s living life in line with their conscience. But don’t worry, there are plenty of things other plant-based babies will be asking for this Christmas -  (or what to get the vegan in your life) and here are my suggestions!

A few weeks ago I wrote part 1 of this blog that introduced you to the three macronutrients, and I went into detail about carbohydrates, what they are, why they are important, the kinds you should be eating regularly and the kinds you should be limiting. This week, I’m going to move on to PROTEIN, which many people believe should be the most important macro in your diet. It can be quite tricky to get enough high-quality protein, especially for vegans, so I hope to help make this a little easier for you today.
