P is for PROTEIN!!! This is your post work-out snack. I know I'm not the first to tell you this, or maybe I am! Whoop Whoop! Love being the first for people ;) But Protein is a must for after your work-out.
SO I don't particularly like eating right after my work-out but fitness leaders, doctors and all those smart people say that you should eat within the first 10 minutes after your workout.
Well this is what I asked too!! It's because when you're working out and using your muscles - hopefully you're fatiguing them - which means your breaking apart the muscle fibers. Fatiguing is that burning feeling you get after so many reps and so many sets.
"WHAT?!?! I don't want to break apart my muscles!! No!! I'd like to keep those"
Ha,Ha! Yes you do because this is what makes your muscles show - so you can get that lean, sculpted, toned or bigger body that you're working towards. This is where the big P word comes into place...
No not THAT P word...where is your mind at huh? PROTEIN!
Protein helps your muscles big time is rebuilding themselves. So where am I going with this whole conversation? Well since I don't like eating within the first freaking 10 minutes after my work-out. I actually usually feel like I'm going barf...maybe you do too? So I prefer, and I think you should try it - Drink 1-2 cups of MILK! Not actually 1-2 cups like glasses, but like baking measurement cups. Its really not that much. But if you do this you're muscles will be like;
"Gimmie Gimmie More, Gimmie, Gimmie Gimmie MORE"
OK maybe you're muscles don't sing Britney Spears, but mine do :) Anyways any kind of milk will do - Skim, 1%, 2%, yes even Chocolate! Hey even Soy, Almond, Coconut, and other crazy types of milk there are out there.....am I behind the times? It seems like every time I go into Whole Foods there is this new type of milk...its getting a little ridiculous right? OK back to the point! Why you ask? Well milk has an incredible amount of Protein in it! And its freaking delicious!
Also- Side note, when I wake up in the morning and I really don't feel like eating anything, I'll chug 2 cups of milk and BAM there ya go metabolism I've officially started you for the day!
Feeling weak, anxious and unconnected to my body lead me to start exercising. I joined a dance class once a week and after every dance class I had a glow about me, and it wasn't just from the sweat that I built up in class, it was something more. I realized it was the endorphins that were being produced from the physical activity I was doing. That was 13 years ago. Since then I have devoted my career life to helping other humans, like yourself, kick butt in their health and fitness goals. If you're looking for a helping hand or not even knowing where you should start... I would be more than honoured to help!
