Do We Really Deserve . . .

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

So I've worked out really hard & what snack or meal do I reach for? I eat my proteins, carbs & fats but then I decide I've worked so strongly & hard that I deserve bag of chips, or that soda. How hard did I really work? Did I burn enough calories to eat the bag of chips & 16oz of soda at over 500+ calories?! I know how hard I have to work but do YOU know how long you would have to work out to burn off those calories?
Let's see how it would work for me:
Aerobics, Step: 6" - 8" step for 45mins

Weight Lifting: Vigorous, free weight, nautilus or universal-type 65mins

Boxing: sparring
Walk: 5 mph (12 min/mi)
Running: 6.7 mph (9 min/mile)

Now, this is not to say that I don't enjoy most of my workouts but would I want to waste my energy on burning calories of high fat, high carb foods? Or would I feel accomplished by eating to live & not living to eat!

Remember get your daily lean cuts of proteins, omega 3 fats & the good carbs. Not say we can't reward ourselves every now & then. Totally remember this, once on the lips forever on the hips!

    When you put it this way, eating high fat/sugar foods isn't very rewarding...

    Food for thought.

    Good job making the choice so clear! When you put it that way, it's easy to know what to do.
