Feelin' good!

Hello Friday! There's no better feeling than when you look up at the clock and realize that you are officially done working for the week - unless it's the last day before a vacation. But I'm feeling particularly energetic and proud of myself today, because I managed to wake up at 5 a.m. every morning this week to exercise. From 30-minute jogs to one-hour sculpting and step classes, I'm back in the workout game. I've been really good about it for the past month, but it feels like my body is finally adjusting to those early morning workouts and my energy level is increasing. Plus, I've been following a really healthy meal plan packed with veggies, fruits, lean meats and whole-wheat grains. Last night, I had brown rice with beef, basil and steamed vegetables. This morning, I had a fruit smoothie sweetened with sucralose and brought along some healthy snacks to keep my metabolism boosted throughout the day. That includes celery, fat-free cheese, a green apple, low-cal yogurt with Splenda, a big, colorful salad and a diet soda. Now that is what I mean by a low-cal lifestyle. Care of mind, body, and spirit with strength building exercises, nutrient-packed food, and a positive mindset to take on the world. Bring on the weekend!
