Wake Up!

What a way to start the day! Wake up at 6AM then head to the treadmill!  30 minutes later hit the floor for some upper body weights and  some lunges. Then power through sit-ups and finish off with a nice stretch!

Now I have been up for about an hour!  Time to drink my protein shake that I choose to blend with ice and bananas, which I have frozen ahead of time!  Oh and I add some Chia seeds too! There are a lot of good reasons to add Chia seeds to your diet! Here are just a few……

  1. Help weight loss. They reduce food cravings by preventing some of the food that you eat from getting absorbed into your system. This blockage of calorie absorption makes them a great diet helper.
  2. Feel fuller faster: They can help by making you feel full. This is because they absorb 10 times their weight in water, forming a bulky gel.
  3. Omega-3: Chia seeds are the richest plant source of Omega-3 (the vital fats that protect against inflammation—such as arthritis—and heart disease). In fact, they contain more Omega-3 than salmon!
  4. Chia seeds are easier to digest than flax seeds, and don’t need to be ground up.

Now I am ready for a great day!  I hope you have a good Friday too!
