Hey there Everybody, this is Rowdy Roulette,
Over the next few weeks, our goal is to share with you tips and tricks and answer any questions about having a better nutrition plan to fuel your bodies as well as ours for optimum performance on and off the track.
The next 90 days Krissy and I committed to each other to achieve our personal BEST results. We both are working with trainers as well as each other to stay accountable, (yes even coaches need accountability buddies) I look forward to taking you on this journey with me/us.
So, how do you start your day off? Do you eat first thing in the morning? Do you work out? OR do you just hit the ground running? I’m curious to hear what you do. I KNOW we’ve all heard and know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But for most of us we are busy in the mornings, rushed for work, school, the gym whatever it is. So we just skip it and plan to make up for it later. You can’t really make up for your breakfast when you skip it.
Being a single mom with three boys mornings are so hectic at my house I have to have something fast and easy in the morning to eat. It also has to be packed full of minerals and vitamins as well as good complex carbs and proteins. I want that kick off to my day. I currently have skates on my feet a minimum of four times a week and am in the gym 4 days a week so I count on my nutrition to keep me going.
For those who like to geek out on stuff like blood sugar levels here is an interesting little read..
No Breakfast - When we skip breakfast, blood sugar drops below the normal level, leading to cravings and a drop in energy. To deal with cravings, we usually revert to snacking on simple carbohydrates, causing a fast rise in blood sugar levels and a substantial insulin emission. The insulin removes most of the sugar from the blood and turns any excess into fat. Our body, now low in blood sugar, experiences further cravings and a drop in energy. This vicious cycle constitutes one of the major reasons for diabetes, high blood pressure and extra weight.
Make sure to start your mornings with something that has minerals and vitamins, complex carbs and protein. I currently have skates on my feet minimum of four days a week and am at the gym four as well so I count on my nutrition to keep me going and that's how I start my mornings.
Each week we are going to blog about different things, if you have something specific you’d like to talk about here leave us a comment or shoot us over an email.
Hope you have a rad day,
