It’s easy to fall off the good nutrition & exercise wagon.
Most people generally know what to do for good health; eat less, move more.
Sounds simple enough right? Well why do we struggle at times?
Personally, it’s my love of food that is my downfall. I go hard with my exercise but I.love.food. And unfortunately you can’t out train a bad diet.
I’ve put back on a few kilos of my hard earned weight loss but thanks to my new year’s kick-start detox earlier in the week I’ve lost 1.1kg (2.4lbs) of it and am off to a good start for this year’s fitness & weight loss goals.
Essential to my nutritional well-being is my regular green smoothie. I have these about 3 mornings a week. I really notice the difference in my skin, digestion & general “perkiness” when I drink them regularly!
I’m always trying new variations of the green smoothie but at the moment this is what I’m loving:
The trick is to keep all the ingredients green. The moment you add carrot or beetroot it turns brown. And there is nothing worse than drinking a tall glass of brown liquid first thing in the morning!… Keep those other non-green ingredients for juices!
This one is bound to kick you up the butt and make you pay the next day!
I do this one outdoors but you could also do it at the gym. All you need is your GymBoss timer, running track/treadmill & a step/park-bench.
