Happy Friday!! July 22, 2011

Had a great week in terms or goals being met with my clients. Some of them are:
-learnt that the day mindset can be changed to not think the whole day is destroyed if one meal went astray. The next meal can get you right back on track.
-when losing weight comes to a stand still don’t give up the body is also learning to maintain. 3 more days of strict eating and the body dropped 2 more pounds = 15lb lost in one month.
-sweat dripping, muscles building, feeling stronger!
– better balance & cordination, and my client is so much stronger than even I thought.
– greater selfesteem.
Goals some are small some are large, ALL are importamt !

Some road trip snacks

Nuts and Dried Fruit

This is a traditional standby that is included on most all road trips–and for good reason. Nuts are a great source of dietary protein, which is essential in promoting the growth and maintenance of muscles. In addition, protein promotes saiety and helps prevent feelings of hunger, meaning there will be cause for fewer pit stops to grab something to eat.

While nuts can be a high source of fat, they contain monunsaturated fat, which is actually a “healthy” fat. Monounsaturated fats are important in preventing heart disease, strokes, and some cancers. Choose nuts that are raw or in their most natural form. Find them with no added salt or preservatives.

Dried fruit also makes a great addition to any road trip because it doesn’t need to be refrigerated. Like oatmeal, dried fruit is a great source of dietary fiber, and helps keep you feeling fuller longer. In addition, dried fruit is a great source of vitamins and minerals. Fruit is naturally sweet, and when dried the flavor is intensified so you shouldn’t have to add sugar–look for dried fruit that is sugar free.

Celery and Peanut Butter

Celery, like fruits and oatmeal, is a great source of fiber. In addition to this, celery is a high-fluid food, meaning that it contains high levels of water. This is important to help maintain hydration during long road trips when it may be difficult to stop and grab a drink. For some added flavor, consider putting peanut butter on the celery. Peanut butter contains high amounts of protein, which can prevent hunger in between meals. Peanut butter, like nuts, is a relatively high source of fat–but it is monounsaturated fat, which is actually good for your health. Choose peanut butter that contains as few additives and preservatives as possible in order to ensure the highest quality product.

Hummus and Mini Pitas

Hummus is another good source of protein, and like peanut butter it doesn’t have to be refrigerated. Mini pitas contain carbohydrates, which will help keep you energized during long road trips. Choose whole-grain pitas that have very little added salt in order to achieve optimal health benefits.(copied from 3 fat chicks)
