Summer went by in a flash with kids home and daily activities. Not all fun and games because I let my guard down this past month and went down a poor diet spiral. Eating out, summer cocktails, and carbs - oh my!

Cleanup Time

Reigning in and getting back into the swing of a healthy diet needed to happen ASAP. This comes down to a few necessary eliminations:

1) refined sugar

2) gluten

3) alcohol

4) sodium

And a few necessary additions:

Cardiovascular exercise is great for the heart, but lean muscle dramatically increases metabolism. Sadly the body doesn't respond overnight, but within a short period of time feelings of lethargy and bloating disappear to be replaced by muscle definition, energy, and less restrictive clothing ;)

Seems easy in theory, but consistency is key. The longer we let things go, the more time it takes to get back into shape. A common misconception from avid exercisers is an idea of invincibility, "I can eat anything I want." The body will catch up.

If you're working toward getting back in shape and need a little motivation, stop back!
