Your Schedule. If you’re not willing to sit down and change the way you live each day to include exercise, time to prepare meals and time to nurture yourself with sleep, it’s hard to lose weight. People use busy schedules as an excuse not to be healthy…are you one of them? If you’re not ready to take responsibility for the schedule you’ve created, it will be hard to lose weight.

FAT vs MUSCLE
As you can see in this picture, the 250 lbs. of fat is much bulkier than the 250 lbs. of muscle… A 250 pound pile of fat will take up more space (volume) than a 250 pound pile of muscle. A woman weighing 150 pounds with 19% fat will look much smaller (and be much healthier) than a woman at 150 pounds with 35% fat. They weigh the same, yet the composition is different. Because muscle is denser than fat, the person with less fat and more muscle will look smaller. Once you understand this, you will stop being so concerned with body weight and start paying attention to body composition. How much body fat do you have compared to muscle?If you want to look slimmer, the key is to build more muscle and to burn more fat! And remember, when it comes to fat loss, exercise is the method that can be most easily manipulated… the more active you are, the more fat that you will burn! Here’s to happy fat loss!

Kefir: Terrific Post Workout Drink
Drinking a cup of kefir after a workout provides you with quick-digesting whey protein that can help your muscles repair and recover. The casein protein in kefir digests more slowly to help your muscles continue to synthesize hours later. A review in “The Proceedings of the Nutrition Society” published in February 2011 concluded that consuming dairy protein shortly after a bout of exercise promotes muscle protein synthesis and, consequently, muscle growth.Read more: http://www.livestrong.com/article/541219-kefir-for-protein/#ixzz1yUP9iIM7

I generally eat toasted Ezekiel bread with peanut butter and bananas before I head out to the gym in the morning :)  If I am able, I will make a kefir fruit smoothie after my workout for the natural whey protein and energy!
