Hey there! Just checking in with those of you gearing up for the challenge beginning on Sunday, Sept. 4. Make sure you browse the recent posts for tips on getting started.
Remember, when starting any exercise/nutrition program, be sure to consult with your doctor first. Invest in a new pair of running shoes that have been recommended especially for you by a local running store employee/runner.
Start eating mini meals every two-and-a-half to three hours, five to six times a day. This will get your metabolism going so you're burning calories all day long.....gone are the days of three square meals and nothing in between!
Protein supplements and vitamins....Best sources of whey protein for pre- and post- workouts are protein Isolate....other choices are concentrate and blends. Isolates are the purest form with the least amount of sugars and fats and great before and after workouts for muscle building and repairing. Vitamins are a great bridge if your not getting enough fruits and veggies. One highly recommended by pediatricians for both adults and children is Juice plus. Juice Plus is great for bridging the gap between what you're getting and what you're not. Those are my personal recommendations based on my own personal choices. Find what works best for you in your own life.
Remember, if you're looking for accountability in this challenge, email me directly at gkatzfit4life.com. I will ask you pertinent questions about the goals you have in mind for yourself over the next six weeks and do my best in guiding you towards them.
Hope everyone is having a great week!
