Gifts, Food, A Challenge And More!

Whoa…the home stretch to Christmas! Is it really the most wonderful time of the year or is it the busiest time of the year? Let me know what you think…wonderful or busy?

Let’s get right into this post which I’ve divided into 4 parts…

1) HEALTHY YUMMY RECIPE

Last week I shared a recipe on Facebook for super healthy and easy Snowball Christmas Cookies. The traditional recipe is so good but so horrible for your insulin levels. This recipe is much friendlier:

Cheaters Always Win

I don’t know about you but I’ve witnessed a lot of cheating in my life time. There are so many people who do everything they can to win, to get the extra advantage, to be a step ahead of the competition and if we’re being perfectly honest here, I have seen a lot of cheaters win.

I know the conventional sayings are that, “Cheaters never win.” or “Cheaters never prosper.”

Think of some of the most prolific cheaters of all time.

Lance Armstrong (Cycling)
He won and he won a lot!

Ben Johnson (Olympic 100m Sprinter)
He won and won a lot!

Bill Belichick (NFL Coach)
This guy never stops winning

They win and win and win.

But, they also have no credibility. No integrity. No respect.

None of the things in life that really matter.

How many times have you ever heard the word, “Cheat meal.” or “Cheat day.” when it comes to health and fitness? Trainers and coaches say it all the time…to me they are telling their clients, “I think you’re a loser and you can’t win with honesty, integrity and intestinal fortitude…so cheat away.”cheat-meal-pic-updated


I never subscribe to the idea of a cheat.

A cheat is a short cut. A side-step of the rules. A blatant disregard for ethics…yes, even with meals on diets.

I love to teach healthy options. Ways to satisfy your sweet tooth without compromising your sweetness.

Cheat meals lead to cheat days which lead to cheat weekends. They also signal your brain to think that it’s OK to cheat from time to time if you have a weak moment or need to satisfy a craving.

Cheating is never OK. Cheating is a mentality of failures.

Cheaters always do win. They win the race to unhealthy habits.

They win the race to quitting.

They win the race to the easy way out.

But cheaters never win where it matters…to themselves.

Don’t ever cheat because as much as we do see cheaters win, they really do lose…even when they aren’t caught.

Have an awesome day!

Let’s Crank Up Your Coffee

Boost Your Coffee With This Fountain Of Youth Protein.

My #FitFriends in the MBA already know this about me…I LOVE COFFEE and the first coffee I have every day is BUTTER COFFEE.

If you don’t know what butter coffee is, slap yourself in the face, read the rest of this and then watch this video to learn all about butter coffee <- Video I did that explains it what it is.

Coffee + Butter = Great
Coffee + Butter + MCT Oil = Amazing
Coffee + Butter + MCT Oil + Collagen = HEAVEN (picture yourself taking a sip and suddenly you’re surrounded by angels playing harps).

What the heck is Collagen? Slap yourself again.

Collagen is a protein.  It’s the #1 protein in your body. It’s found in everything from our muscles and bone, skin and hair…it’s an inside outside protein.

It’s kind of a big deal…collagen makes up about 30% of your inside and 70% of your outer covering (skin). 

You naturally produce collagen, but as we get older our collagen production slows down. Add in stress and sickness and it plummets.

  • skin loses its elasticity
  • hair and nails grow more slowly and lose their strength and shine
  • ligaments get stiff..

We also get collagen from the food we eat. Animals, like us are made up of a lot of collagen…remember it’s a protein.

A couple of years ago, Bone Broth Soup started to get really popular and early this year it was huge! I’ve been having it about once or twice a month for a couple of years. (PRO TIP #1: Don’t try making it…it’s an all day process…just buy it).

The other way I supplement my collagen is with powder. Back to the coffee. (See, it all comes back to coffee).

I put a tablespoon of collagen powder in my butter coffee and give it a stir. (PRO TIP #2: Don’t blend it…it breaks it down and makes it kind of useless.)

Here’s why I supplement with collagen.

1. It can cut down on wrinkles, and give the skin more elasticity.
Cut down on wrinkles?? Give me a drum of the stuff!

2. It improves bone and joint health and may improve hormone production.
Hormones…middle aged hormone help. Sign me up!

3. Adding collagen powder to your diet may even cause the body to make more collagen on its own!

Put it in your smoothies, sprinkle it on your oatmeal, put it in tea…how ever you start the day.

Have an awesome day!

Carrie
