Crazy for Coconut Oil

I have learned this week that if I eat a tbs of virgin coconut oil before my hard work out I can blast thru it. Before I had been drinking a half cup of black coffee (literally 4oz.) but after 15 minutes I was having a hard time focusing. So besides staying hydrated the coconut oil has really helped out with stamina and seems to clear some of the brain fog. I love the way it tastes too. emoticon

Raisins are nature's candy bar-- good for preventing the BONK

Biking high intensity, taking a raisin break, and then biking the second half is what keeps me going. I'll eat 1.5 ounces of raisins which are loaded with fructose. It's great for taking a break on the mountain bike trail, and not only motivates me to push on the return home ride but also fuels my energy.

Break a Weight Plateau with Green Tea!

When you are stuck in a plateau, drink four or more glasses of green tea a day with a squeeze of lemon or lime! Do not add sugar. If you must have a sweetener, add a little bit of honey!

The tea will detox your body, boost your metabolism, burn fat, increase exercise endurance and block fat absorption!

Adding green tea to your diet twice or more a week will improve your overall health and weight loss efforts!

Wheat and Gluten Free Eating

I removed wheat from my diet two weeks ago and am eating very low carb, checking all foods on the Glycemic Index before they are allowed in my menu planning. I do not try to limit healthful fats such as olive oil, avocados, nuts, but I do keep my total calories under 1500, and under 400 per meal.

What I Discovered During a Power Outage

The power is OUT! Flashlights dim? Candles too dangerous with kids/pets? No batteries left in the store? Try the little individual solar lights designed for outdoors. I bought some at a discount store for cheap. I keep a few on my sunny fencepost...they stay clean and within easy reach to bring inside for great indoor lighting in an emergency or any day to save electricity and use the sun's free energy.
BONUS: Our old dog needs a night light, this kept us safe & worry free. emoticon

Only eat when you're hungry

This is a simple idea, but a easy one. Well easy to me. But looking at my current weight you wouldn't think so. Anyway it's simple really.
Only eat when you're hungry, and stop when you're not.
That's it. One sentence and it can change your life. I just need to start using it again myself. And that starts today. Hope it will help my new friends too emoticon

It really works! When I need energy, I drink pure water. Often the source of my fatigue is dehydration.

Low energy fix

If you find you are consistently lacking energy try adding a b-complex vitamin to your morning routine. It may take 2 - 3 weeks to see a consistent difference but I've found that it really does help and is much less expensive than the 5-hour energy drinks with the same results.

Lots of Energy

I try to get as close to eating 30 grams of protein for breakfast every day within 1 hour after waking up.

I noticed the huge difference in my energy the first day. With proper nutrition through the rest of the day, it will change your life.

Here's what I eat: 2 poached farm fresh eggs, 2 Dr. Praeger spinach pancakes from Costco, 3 strips of bacon.

I add 3-4 strawberries and 1/2 cup of as a snack at nuts 10 a.m.

Wake up with energy

Do something active when you first wake up - whether it's a few sets of crunches or push-ups or just rocking out to your alarm clock music. You'll feel more awake and more productive!

First Hour of the Day

I wake up, make a cup of tea and write out my goals and mindstorm 20 ideas how to achieve my most immediate goal each morning. I then read and repeat positive affirmations and motivational/spiritual material.
This is my way of getting centered and focused on what is most important to me and energizing myself to power through my day!

Avoid that 2pm feeling- without an energy drink!

I've found that by taking my B-vitamin supplement around 11am with my midmorning snack helps me avoid that "2pm crash" that usually hits after I've worked out the same morning. No caffeine, no energy drinks!

Get morning walk before you eat or shower!

Few years ago, I'd wake up, take a walk with my dog before breakfast and shower, even if it was a short walk... Always gave me energy for the day. My dog loved it, always insisted on daily walk. Both happy.

Dance the jumping jacks!

In order to complete my (at least) 50 Jumping Jacks per day, which I don't schedule within my workout routine, I jump of my chair whenever a song I like plays in the radio ("Right back where we started from" for example) and I start silly dancing and doing the jumping jacks! emoticon

Easy way to inventory your refrigerator contents

Ever find yourself looking in the fridge for something?
Wondering if that leftover has grown hair?
Need to remind yourself to put something on the grocery list?
Heloise printed the suggestion of a magnetic dry board on the front door of the refrigerator.
You can write the contents and date of items (particularly leftovers) on the board so you will know when to use them or throw them out.
