How to get the energy to travel and do things around the house?

Hey PAH Warriors,

Most of you know that you don’t have to be buff to be considered a fit individual. But most people that are in shape do eat healthy. I like to stay healthy but I find myself ¬†falling off the wagon every time I smell movie popcorn. Is anyone out there guilty? Sometimes I have a little pouch by the time I realize what I have been doing to myself. I seem to pay more attention to my overall health right before I go on a trip. Why? Well, I certainly don’t want to be attempting to hike to a glacier or be on a cruise ship in the middle of the Caribbean and feel like a cream-filled doughnut.

Most of the reasons that we feel crappy despite our health, is what we are eating. Remember that good ole’ saying, “what you put in your body is what you will get out of it?” Do I sound like your mom yet? Sorry, but it’s true and here is a short cut for those of you that like to procrastinate or just like eating what you want until the very last minute, JUCING. Yuck! It’s really not that bad and you can tailor ¬†it to your needs. Take me for example I think I’ve mentioned my diarrhea, no shame, it’s bad. Because of my digestive track I am hesitant on juicing. However, my logic is that I am going to have this problem either way so I may as well be getting something out of it. What do you get? Micronutrients, basically all of the purest forms of vitamins that your body needs. I start with:

*2 strawberries, *1 orange, *spinach and kale leaves, *1 kiwi,* *a few slices of cucumber, *half an apple,* 5 mini carrots and then I add 2 cubes of ice along with a 1/2 cup of Almond Milk. Then blend away and I guarantee you it will taste like magic. Use this drink every morning to get your oral meds and daily vitamins down the hatch. You will be immediately full but it will burn off fast which is a good thing so be prepared to follow up with a healthy snack. (banana, almonds, tuna tray) Tip: I use a NINJA Juicer.

What juicing looks like . Drink once a day for 2 wks.

Look for your local Farmers Market and stay fresh!

In one serving you will have handled your entire day like a healthy adult. Dayyyuuuummmm your awesome! But it only works if you do it! Commitment is key! Noone is watching you. Noone will spank your hand and tell you that you have been abusive to your body. Only you can care for yourself, so will you try it? Taking this step will not only give you the energy that you have been craving but it will also help you to drop pounds instantly. It has worked for me in the past. I am going to attach a fitness pick to my exercise post to show you’ll where my commitment was and so I can get back there again as well. Keep in mind that most of us are working against fluid retention so take your water pills as directed and hydrate accordingly.

Any questions, fire away? Good Luck and please tell us all about it!
