Why I Drink a Post Workout Drink

Do you ever get sore muscles or need to know how to get rid of sore muscles? Or maybe you want to know how to prevent soreness after a workout?

I I’ve been drinking the best post-workout recovery drink from Beachbody called Recover after my workouts for about a year now and love it. Not only do both the orange and chocolate taste delicious, but it prevents sore muscles after a workout.

The other day after my workout I didn’t have my post workout drink and within hours my muscles began to get stiff and sore. I knew that one of the benefits was that it decreased muscle soreness, but the other benefit is that it gives your body exactly what it needs to repair your muscles quicker so that you can continue on with your workouts the next day. It’s more than just about being sore it is about making sure your muscles have recovered.

Whatever fitness goals you have, whether you want to prevent sore muscles, get stronger, boost your metabolism or maximize weight loss, drinking Recover, the best muscle recovery supplement, will help you achieve results.

Portion Control Tip For Nutrition

I have a super fast and simple tip for you today regarding portion control. Have you ever seen these little portion control containers on TV – they’re from the 21 Day Fix.

The cool thing is, they’re just measuring cups that you can use as a portion control tool to help you determine the correct portion sizes you need.

I don’t know if you’ve ever used a portion control diet container before or even needed to utilize something like this for weight loss, but most people I help lose weight need help figuring out how to better measure their food.

Losing weight can be a struggle for any woman. It can be particularly hard to lose weight when you’re a new mom. As a new mom you might experience things like low energy, no time, no patience, a lack of resources, as well as feelings of the baby blues, so to speak. New moms have a hard time losing weight because of a multitude of reasons.

Sore Muscles and How to Avoid

I just taught Turbo Kick and one thing I do religiously is take a post workout drink to make sure my muscles recover and are less likely to be sore. The number one thing to do within 15-45 minutes of a hard workout or a hard day is to drink a post workout drink to replenish your proteins and carbohydrates. This will refuel your body and help repair your body which means your body will feel less sore.

One of the best ways I have found to fight fatigue and reduce muscle soreness is to drink a post workout drink to replace the nutrients your body has burned through during your workout. By doing so, you are helping yourself get through the day, along with  upcoming days.

Hope you have a great day. Follow me for more information regarding what supplements can do for you and your body.  I have been in the fitness industry for a long time and would love to answer any questions you may have relating to your health and wellness.

 

 

How I Eat Healthy on the Go

I have a super busy day ahead of me, if you follow me at all, you know that I have been helping with the filming of Chalene Johnson’s new educational program called the One3One diet. I normally work from home, but I feel so blessed to be able to help with the filming of this new program.

The days have the potential to run long, so I have had to make sure I prepare myself so I can sustain my energy and health. So, when I made my shake today, I added a fiber boost along with a power green boost, knowing that it would likely be a long day. I also added a banana so I have my greens covered, along with fiber and fruits.

Right now, I am running a support group to help people with healthy eating. I often get questions about what to do when you are traveling or when you know you have a long day ahead. I’ve developed these practices throughout the years and wanted to share with you some of the ways you can eat healthy on the go.

A lot of time my husband and I attend personal development and business conferences and if you add up all the time it takes to get to and from the event, along with the actual conference, you are looking at being away from home like 14 hours. What I normally try to do is pack nuts, protein bar, dried cranberries, normally a banana.

I also carry a shake with me that I could mix up if I can’t find a healthy alternative. Pack things that don’t need refrigerated so they will last throughout the day. Eat a big breakfast and bring with you healthy snacks that will keep you from grabbing something unhealthy during your those long days. Always carry water with you.

Those are the tips I have for preparing for a long day ahead. I would love to hear from you what kind of tips you have. I’m super excited to learn more today about the One3One diet and I will share with you all the details in a later broadcast. For now make sure you follow me for more tips from me on eating healthy.

 

How to Make Your New Year Resolutions Stick

I have a hot topic to you today on how to make your New Year Resolutions stick.  You may be from the camp that I used to sit in, where you say to yourself, “I don’t make resolutions because they don’t work.”  Do you feel that way?  If you do, then I’m going to challenge you a little bit.

I used to not make resolutions because I was nervous I was going to fail at them.  So, until I really started diving deep into how goal setting works and how to really go after a goal, even if it seems lofty or large, or really unattainable until I really dove in and figured out how goal setting actually works, I wasn’t brave enough to take the steps to make those huge, seemingly impossible goals but I’m going to let you in on a secret, people with written goals achieve way more than if not written

Have you heard the saying, a goal not written down is just a dream?  It is so true, because you can’t really go after something if it is not clearly defined.Here are a few tips I have for you for making your New Year Resolutions stick.  Your goal needs to be as clearly defined as possible, meaning you’ve thought about it and brainstormed about it.  Brainstorm all the things you are thinking about with regards to what you want to accomplish.  Write it all down, often times you aren’t quite sure what it is you really want until you start writing everything out. Think about what you don’t want, a lot of times this will help you really figure out what it is you DO want

Once you figure out what it is you really want, I want you to think about how it will feel once you achieve it. Explore why you want it, how it will make feel, and if you were to achieve it/obtain it will it be a long term benefit for you and your family.  This exercise really helps you clearly define and state what you really want.  It helps your brain move in the direction of what you really want and what needs to be done.  So much of what we do comes from our subconscious, so it is important to put our subconscious mind to work for us and not against us.  

Define what you want and what you don’t want, why you want it and then how it is going to make you feel.  To help you with this I have an acronym that makes it easy for you to define a SMART goal.  The acronym SMART lays out certain ideas that will make your goal more achievable.

S (Specific) The more specific you can make your goal the easier it will be to achieve it.

M (Measurable) There needs to be some type of number associated with it that can be measured.  For example, if you want to pay off debt, you need to know the number amount in order to be able to track your progress.

A (Action-Oriented) You need to be able to list the action steps needed to reach goal.

R (Realistic) Is it a realistic goal for you to be working towards?

T (Time Bound) There needs to be a time limit on when you reach your goal.  If you don’t have a time where you want to reach your goal by, it’s less likely you will achieve it.
