Fueling the Body

I am very active. Most mornings I am up at 4:15 to either teach, take a class or practice on my own. My IntraMax vitamins and a large glass of water are the first thing I take when I wake up. I take my vitamins first thing in the morning and middle of the afternoon.IntraMAX® is an all-in-one, completely organic liquid vitamin and mineral supplement. A great source of over 415 nutrients, IntraMAX® is derived from ultra dissolved, organically trace minerals and natural and organic plant sources. I have several shots of espresso after I take my vitamins and drink my water.

After teaching or working out I have a protein shake. My shake consists of Muscle Milk protein powder, frozen banana & berries, a cup of water, 1 tsp flaxseed, 1 tsp organic tumeric, 1 tsp organic coconut oil and 1 TBSP almond butter. 

Lunch consists of a green salad with grilled chicken or fish along with almonds, dried cherries, avocado and other veggies from the frig. I enjoy some high protein pretzels or sweet potato chips with my salad and a sparkling water. Afternoon snack consists of a piece of fruit and a handful of nuts before I go teach or take class in the evening. 

Dinner is usually a piece of grilled fish or chicken with some grilled veggies and a salad or starch. I love bread and butter and usually indulge! Dinner is accompanied by a large bottle of sparkling water. Some nights I enjoy dessert. I have a big sweet tooth and try to enjoy everything in moderation. 

I am constantly drinking water throughout the day. I always have a BKR water bottle in my car, at my desk, with me at exhale. Staying hydrated makes me feel better. Having multiple  BKR bottles ensures I always have water with me. 

I refuse to put strict rules on my food behavior. Wait, so you just eat whatever you want? YES!!! How can this be healthy? Because I listen to my body. And my mind. And my emotions. I know I need to fuel my body so I can sustain my daily demands. I have long days and work hard physically and mentally and know I need to #FUEL to stay strong, focused and alert. 

The key is to pay attention and tend to your needs so that you can figure out your life ingredients and your #FUEL. Once you figure out what you need you will have more energy and dedication to everything you do.

MIND, BODY AND BREATH

I feel best when I’m active. Our bodies are amazing machines that are meant to move (even as we breath we move). The breath links mind and body and is the key to awareness of mind & body connection. The breath is the most powerful tool we have to clear the mind.
