Fitness Friday

Almost on a daily basis we get asked about breakfast.  People are always looking for great ideas for breakfast outside of the usual eggs or oatmeal answer.  It can get quite boring in fact.  Even having that super shake for breakfast can get boring too.  If you are looking for a change, and trying to keep it healthy, click here.
Ever notice that you are always in a hurry in the morning??  I am always in a rush.  I wake up, turn on my Keurig, and get ready for the day.  But it is always rush, rush, rush.  Maybe I should slow down a little in the morning, savor the beginning of the day, and meditate on what's to come.  Could this possibly be a new addition to your morning routine?

Like Ferris Bueller said:  "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."

We all aim to eat healthy every day, and by including these 13 super foods you could make it even healthier.  How many of these 13 do you eat?  I hit 9/13. 
In addition to hitting on some key super foods, it's also important that you take in vital vitamins and nutrients to keep your body moving.  Make sure you get them. 

Lastly, at one point or another we all take medication.  Whether its Tylenol or something more specific.  However, one thing we don't always think about is how that medication can alter our fitness progress.  Certain medications can have great impact on your body's response to exercise and nutrition.  THIS is a helpful resource next time you have to take something.  Among these are the birth control drugs that most women take.  Since most of our AMP clients are women, this is a good one to point out.  Now I'm not saying drop everything you're taking, that is up to your doctor, but its more making you aware of what is going on inside your body. 

On a lighter note, here's Winnie the Pooh!!
