Okay friends! How’s our New Year’s resolutions going? If you’re still at it congratulations! We are halfway through the year! I would say you have officially made a lifestyle change!!
There are days however when we feel sluggish and it’s just hard to get moving! Well I have this dear friend Catherine, she is an amazingly incredible real estate agent who used to sell my julz for me! Wow was I lucky! This girl is a fire-cracker! Gorgeous and can definitely sell ice-cubes to Eskimos! Anyway, back to feeling sluggish! Whenever Catherine and I were on the road together selling julz at about 4:00 in the afternoon Catherine would look at me and say, “I need to eat something ALIVE”…….then she would reach into her cooler and grab the crispiest apple or juiciest peach of tupperware full of strawberries and be instantly re-energized!
This statement of her wanting to eat something alive has always stuck with me! I am not a morning person by nature. I am a wanna be morning person! And I am getting there( my other friend Katherine (with a K) gets my butt out the door at 6:30 am for a walk, run or bike ride every morning)…….I eat fruit from 7:00am to 12:00 pm to give me tons of great energy and then delicious veggies for lunch, followed by more fruit and back to veggies for dinner……lots of protein in there too of course but I never go a day without my 4 cups of veggies and 2 cups of fruit! We do need these foods to keep us feeling super-fantastic! 80% of these fruits and veggies I eat are also raw which is even more alive!
Sometimes I think we over compensate for what we perceive to be lacking in our lives. We do this by spending money on gym memberships, personal trainers, nutritionists, vitamins and supplements. I am not saying that these things are not important or can not help, they can, I’ve done them all!
I’m just saying all I need are my two Katherine Catherine’s!
