I enjoyed a 3.5 mile trail run around Hopewell Lake this morning. Yes, the temperature was a bit hot, even early in the a.m., but that was NOT going to be an excuse for me to skip out on my morning workout. Once I got started, I was so glad I pushed myself to get out of bed and drive up to the lake. The 3.5 mile trail was gorgeous, I pushed my pace, and I was rewarded at the end with the satisfaction of a job well done. On the drive home, I was ravenous ..... dozens of food options were whirling about in my head .... decisions, decisions. So here is where having the RIGHT FOOD in the house is important. What were the choices in my fridge? Spinach frittata, Chinese spiced chicken breast, raw spinach, carrots, asparagus, blueberries, strawberries, and cherries. I couldn't go wrong! I sat down to a delicious, nutritious, SATISFYING brunch accompanied by 2 bottles of water. Now ..... how did YOU start your day? What food have you eaten to support your desire to lose weight, gain strength, and be a healthier you? Review ... and chat among yourselves. Happy 4th!
I've made a quantum leap in strength, endurance, and especially self-confidence since I've started training with Bambi. She is tuned-in to the kind of workout I might need any given week, and she continues to inspire me as I improve. She is a fierce yet compassionate trainer and teacher, and I would recommend her to anyone who wants to "wake up" his or her fitness training!
