Getting Fit & Staying Healthy

You may be feeling energized & great or you may be feeling tired and fatigued.  If you are feeling great, keep up the good work also, try and increase either your exercise time or the intensity of your workout!

If you are feeling fatigued and tired, make sure you are eating enough, cutting too many calories will not help you lose weight, it will only make your body store fat and burn lean muscle.  Also, don't over do the exercise to the point you are getting hurt.  If you are really sore or physically tired, let yourself rest, its not worth it to get hurt, believe me, I know, I have hurt my back, feet, elbows....everything!

Keep up the good work and STAY AWAY FROM THE BROWNIES!!!

If you NEED a sweet fix, have a chocolate, peanut butter smoothie!  Its sooo yummy and filling!  Recipe below:

1 scoop protein powder (chocolate flavored)
1-2 TBSP peanut butter (natural, unsalted)
1/2 banana
1/4 c raw oatmeal
ice
8 oz. low fat milk or soy (or 4 oz. milk, 4 oz. water)

Be careful, my smoothie is 341 calories, this is a meal in itself!  If you aren't careful, it will be a lot more!
