We've finished week three of the Food Journal Challenge and I hope everyone is still going strong! Keep writing, & keep up the hard work! Last week I reminded you to make sure you were getting your daily dose of vegetables, and this week I want you to remember your protein! We should be trying to consume half our body weight in grams of protein each day. For those who exercise regularly, adding 15-20 grams extra to your total is a great idea. Below you will find an easy, delicious homemade protein bar recipe! The protein bars are so great to have on hand, especially right after a tough workout!
And speaking of tough workouts, give the Total Transformation Workout a try this week! 5 exercises using all muscle groups-- your whole body will thank you when you are finished!
Also, due to recent interest from several people, TransFit is now offering Personalized Online Training! I would love to hear feedback from anyone that may be interested in this new service! Please feel free to email me if you are interested! firstname.lastname@example.org
