Heading into the final month of summer and it has been a HOT one! I know I have gotten outside a ton for fitness this summer, how about you? What things have you enjoyed outside?
I have logged a lot of cycling miles, done some outdoor circuit training, outdoor boxing, hiking, and working in the yard.
Check out these pictures of some of my clients hitting this playground for a bunch of cool bodyweight exercises! I love it! What’s even better is that they use the workouts that they have done with me and put them to use on vacation and at home! So if you have a playground nearby which I bet nearly everyone does, then you are lucky to have your own personal gym space! Creative workouts like this are my favorite especially with a good workout buddy who is going to work hard too so you can push each other.
How’s your nutrition game these days? I see a lot of terrible eating and snacking happening with a lot of people which makes me sad because there are really tons of good options if you simply take the time to learn about them and make the effort to purchase or make your own food! I am here to help and that’s why I post so much on my social media outlets so people can get ideas and fuel their bodies with better choices.
One of the first things people say is “well how many calories is it?”
I’m sorry but this thinking is just the wrong way to live! Instead try looking at how many nutrients are in it. Think of calories as units of energy. I think we are all looking for energy to power through life. What are those calories composed of? Stop with the numbers game and eat real food, you will be much happier! If you don’t know what food choices to make and you are spinning your wheels and going nowhere fast then please reach out to me for nutritional guidance. I offer a variety of services to help you learn more about nutrition.
I will leave you with this great breakfast idea from Vega! Vega makes products that are built to suit anyone’s busy life. I especially love the Vega One formula to start my day because its loaded with 20 grams of protein, 6 servings of green vegetables, 6 grams of dietary fiber, omega 3 fatty acids ,probiotics! Bonus! All plants, No soy, no dairy ,no animal products used!
