New Year Newness

New Year, New You.  Oh my goodness, all I can do is roll my eyes at that.  You don't have to wait until the new year to work on your health!!!  Good lord!!  And honestly, doesn't that message give people an excuse to wait?  

Eat More Protein

Every individual is diffferent, but many people are not consuming enough protein.  The reason protein is so important is because protein requires 25-30% of  the energy it provides just for digestion, absorption, and assimilation while carbs only require 6-8% and fat requires 2-3%.  That means eating protein is actually thermogenic and can lead to a higer metabolic rate. This means greater fat loss when dieting and less fat gain during hypercaloric diets.

Keep telling yourself that... every day, every hour, every minute, each and every little slip is too soon to give up. Call your confidant for a powwow, or better yet, make it a moving meeting: bike, walk, skate, etc., doing what makes you smile and open up, to help break through the stalemate.

Oops, I did it again

Ok, I know that sounds misleading, but I did actually. My training today takes me to a few wellness centers (Piedmont Healthcare) where we do group exercise. So, I am challenging and pushing hard, our post New Years workout when I noticed 2 new members hiding in the rear. Normally I meet and greet everyone but was running late between facilities so did not get a chance. Well, suffice to say they were spent after a few minutes, when one of them commented "how are these other members keeping up?'.
