Happy Thursday everyone!
Hope you’re excited about GIVE AWAY 🙂 These bags are honestly the best!
Today started off… a lot like yesterday did!
My new favorite Tera’s Whey Vanilla Protein Powder
I got crazy on today’s smoothie and added:
- 1.5 c 1% Milk
- Vanilla Tera’s Whey Protein Powder
- Frozen organic strawberries
- Frozen organic blueberries
- Frozen organic mango (helloooo tropics!)
- 2 handfuls organic spinach
The mango made it taste even better and sweeter than usual… that addition is here to stay!
You Are What You Eat
The past couple of weeks I’ve been making a real effort to eat healthy. I truly believe that staying fit is 80% diet, 20% exercise and 10% genetic (that little 10% counts for a LOT!)
I’ve been trying to load my diet with fruits, veggies, lean proteins, healthy fats, fiber, and whole grain carbs.
It’s not a weight thing, or a diet thing – when I eat healthier and put better food in, I have SO much more energy, am happier and in a better mood, and just FEEL better all day long.
It also helps with my extreme sleepiness.
I’m one of those people who will be asleep within 10 minutes of starting a movie. (Movie theaters excluded.) It literally hits me like a ton of bricks and then I am OUT.
I can’t even tell you how many movies I’ve missed and nights that have been cut short because I physically can’t keep my eyes open. It’s not that I’m overly tired from the day, I was fine an hour ago. But I’ve noticed that when this instant coma hits, it’s almost always after a large, carb filled meal that leaves me stuffed to the brim.
“…Providing your body with the optimum fuel helps to streamline the energy production process, while exercise helps to boost your mood for a sense of more energy.When you eat unhealthy foods, such as sugary treats or refined carbohydrates, they are digested quickly, resulting in quick but fleeting energy harvested by your metabolism, which is often followed by fatigue. When you choose healthy foods, such as protein and complex carbohydrates, they take longer to digest and therefore allow long-lasting energy.
