HELLO MY LOVES!
IT'S BEEN SO LONG, AND IT'S MY BAD. FINDING A BALANCE WITH MY TRAINING, CLASSES, PROJECTS AND PERSONAL LIFE HAS BEEN TOUGH, BUT I AM BLESSED BEYOND BELIEF. I'm finally feeling like I've found my flow in New York City, I've found a family at FlyWheel and a incredible community that is aligned with what I want to be a part of.
Things are going GREAT, but with a high energy lifestyle, comes an occasional low. I've recently hit mine. Today I'm going to share with you how I got out of my FUNK and got back on track after a SLUMPY week.
Slumpy is definitely not a real word, but that's exactly how I was feeling last week. Last week I was moving very slowly, unmotivated, tired and all I wanted to do was LAY. I wanted to eat junk badly because that's just where my mind was. I gave in a time or two, you know that "being human life". After the third day of having low energy and no drive. I chose the higher road and went with a healthier GREENER option. I can't tell you how much a simple food choice made such a difference on my attitude and energy levels.
Here is one of my current favorite GREEN SMOOTHIES I like to make before class or for a afternoon pick me up ! I added avocado for an AMAZING creaminess that makes it smooth not icy.
