Importance of Nutrition and Fueling Your Workouts

     As your coach I feel like I must confess something to all of you.  As we all know, this past weekend was a holiday  and I hope all of you beautiful Mothers had a great day.  I, of course, did not workout on this day but must tell you what I ate for it weighs heavily on my mind.
    It started out Friday night at a surprise party for a high school friends 30th birthday.  I ate two slices of supreme pizza (thick crust) and I drank a Dr. Pepper.  I do not drink soda.  The next morning for Mothers Day I skipped my Shakeology and make French Toast for the family.  Mothers Day dinner prepared by my Father was not at all TOO bad, I ate grilled chicken, grilled shrimp, some fruit, a small portion of dutch oven potatoes, and a juice.  The bad part came later with the inevitable Huckleberry cheese cake.  That's right I said it.  I had two slices.  I also realize that I maybe drank 1 cup of water in the duration of Saturday and Sunday.
   I justify it by saying it was a holiday.  Just let me tell you that nutrition really does affect you.  Not only in your journey to loosing weight and watching your calories.  I woke up this morning with plenty of rest (7 hours).  I could not get out of bed!  When I finally did after hitting the snooze button twice I headed down stairs and threw on my weighted vest.  Let me tell you that all of my reps were lower than ever (I took my vest off after going through the set one time on chest and back).  I know this is because I had slacked in my nutritious eating.  I have been really great about eating healthy and staying away from junk and have seen amazing results from this important part of staying fit.
 I want each of you to find the power in yourselves to:
  • Plan out your daily meals to be healthy. 
  • Get rid of unhealthy foods in your house. 
  • Stop drinking soda. 
  • Make sure that you are properly fueling your bodies. 
  • If you do this, you will be able to get more out of your workouts and see the results that you want to see.

Like lunch we normally have like a tuna sandwich and a healthy p90x approved smoothie. Then for dinner I make ether chicken or fish. with Wild rice and a side of veggies. Lately I haven't been good about cooking. I feel super bad. I need to hold this part up.. cooking is something I need to step up and do better with. No more carles jr. or wendy's... uh uh.
