I was trying to come up with a top ten things I love nutrition/wellness wise that would get you through the day until your "Valentine's Day Sucks!" party. So here we go:
Coffee, this is my number one. Yes, I get an appropriate amount of sleep but work makes me tired, but coffee reduces the incidence of Diabetes, is a source of antioxidants, has 1-2 g of heart healthy soluble fiber, improves fat burning, and reduces your chances of Alzheimer's. Thanks a latte!
Eggs. I either eat eggs or egg whites 4 times a week for breakfast. The premiere source of protein, and eye healthy nutrients (lutein, zeathanin to be exact) and a cool 70 Calories, this keeps you full and on the move.
Yoga. Typically I hate slow moving, boring, self-reflection. No I don't want to journal about my feelings, I prefer to man up and just 'keep calm and carry on' periodically. It's nice to have a happy place that will keep my spine/chiropractor happy and where I can work on not thinking.
The internet. Yes, the cliche hub of all my health blogs I read, some I love and some just annoy me (hey if you want to get up at 4:30 AM to go to the track and run 18 miles of track repeats...then play with your kids...good for you. It makes me feel crappy in comparison.)
Spinning. Yes, I'm back on the bike. I wanted to train and ride in Pelotonia, but then I saw how much you have to fund raise. I figured I'd rather donate to help someone else's cancer fighting cause and keep on running for whatever cause I'm determined to save this week.
Epic and noble cause, please see their site here: http://pelotonia.org/
Box jumps. Yes, sounds weird but when you're not the most athletically coordinated person (I managed alright in soccer for 18 years), or the fastest, I have found the ability to jump the highest.
TV marathons of Moonshiners. Deep, dumb, poetic, and illegal.
Polar Heart Rate monitor. Did you really burn off that extra large/extra cheese pizza from last night?
