After exercising in the mornings; I make a fruit smoothie (1/2 banana, 3 small strawberries, 1/8 cup organic vanilla yogurt, 1/2 cup water and one scoop of whey protein powder) for rejuvenation. This powerful drink helps to get my day off with a super bang!
Use a Magic Bullet or Vita Mix to blend all ingredients.

Carry a protein bar to stave off hunger. Or if you can, a protein drink.
I always have water and a protein bar in my bag. I just got protein powder packets to carry too. This helps me noteat fast food if I'm out running errands or doing things. It tides me over until I get home where I can eat a healthy meal.
That once upon a time regular routine, that was SUCCESSFUL, slipped away. TIME TO MAKE THE CHANGE! FOR MYSELF, this is going to involve starting my day with at least 32 oz of water, 2-3 cups of coffee, & a PROTEIN DRINK. Lunch will be light but healthy: example 2-3 eggs, another protein drink, and steamed veggies. Afternoon snack: possibly a rice cake or two with polinar all fruit jelly, & supper another protein drink, with home made veggie stew. 224
Of course this is going to involve WITHDRAW! I call this the 10 day BOOT CAMP! HA! IT CAN BE WICKED, BUT IF ONE IS TRULY READY, TEMPTATION CAN BE FOUGHT...FAITH, PRAYER, THINKING POSITIVE, & KNOWING FULL GOOD AND WELL, THAT DETERMINATION PAYS OFF!!! Cut out the soda, the junk sweets, no meal skips!!
