So here we are in the second month of the new year and some of us are feeling miserable because we haven't kept up with our health goals. We had great plans to wake up at the break of dawn every morning to get a good workout; we also had plans to eat better, sleep earlier and up our water intake! Yet here we are ordering pizza because we worked late or we're simply too tired to whip up dinner for the family.
I get it, we've all been there, I know I have! My alarm goes off at 530AM every weekday, and I can never muster enough energy to get out of bed and head to my basement for a workout.
Yes I said my basement, I don't even have to go to the gym, I can go to my basement but I just don't have the energy to do it.
Part of it is because my bed is comfortable, and the second is I have to discipline my flesh. Thankfully, all things are possible through Christ, and I'm here to tell you that though the calendar now says February, it is never too late for new beginnings.
Let's face it, were moms and were busy, and at times, it is easier to grab a quick bite to eat on our way to work, during lunch or bring something quick and easy home for dinner.
Whether you're a working mom or stay at home mom, our time is valuable, and we need to ensure that we maximize every minute we get, we also need loads of energy to tackle our days, and poor eating habits will drain the energy we so desperately need.
I'm sharing 5 food tips for moms on the go, these are tried and true and guaranteed to give you a boost of energy, but most importantly feed you the goodness your bodies so desperately need.
Before we go any further, I'm going to state the obvious, stay away from fried foods, and fast foods as much as you can. Don't get me wrong, there is no harm in indulging once in a while, but keep it minimal.
They call it fast food, because it's quick, but what most folks don't know, fast food takes a long time to digest.
Last year around this time I was being led by the Holy Spirit to make changes to my diet and while doing some research, I came across a book entitled the Maker's Diet by Jordan Rubin. It was enlightening to say the least, but it is in that book that I discovered the importance of diet and that fast food is harder to digest and actually demands more energy from your body hence taking energy away from you.
It also has no nutritional values, so when you add it all together, there are truly no benefits.
So how can you add more energy to your day by the foods you eat? I'm glad you asked! Sharing 5 simple tips below.
Apart from the obvious, being active, maintaining a good intake of water and sleeping at least 8 hours. But food plays a big part too and it is often overlooked.
