Summer time is always a rush for us. Maybe it’s because we’re in the middle of the kiwi’s race season and traveling to and fro (is that still a word?). That probably explains why I needed the slow down challenge so much.
But now that Fall is here, his season is wrapping up and we’re a bit more focused on replenishing our physical and mental strength. I like to use the word FOCUS versus challenge. WHY? Focus in more my thing. It means I want to embrace something with FULLNESS. Not compete with it.
Fall FOOD FOCUS? –> EXTRA nutrients. I already try and get the MAIN nutrients I need with food and natural supplement, but I am always exploring ways to get in those EXTRA nutrients. Focus NUTRIENTS – Spirulina, chia, acacia fiber, and Free radical fighter from REBOOTIZER. I am loving these extra NUTRIENTS. A sense of well being and overall energy. Yes, a good FOOD FOCUS indeed!
“ ENERGYbits”> ENERGYbits”> ENERGYbits”>www.energybits.com —-> ENERGYbits® are a new, clean, green, organic protein that is 100% organically grown. This spirulina algae is actually a super food grown in water that we dry and press into small tablet sized “bits” that you swallow (or chew). They have the highest concentration of antioxidants and protein in the world (64%), forty nutrients and Omega 3. This powerful blend of green protein and alkaline nutrients provides a steady stream of energy without sugar, caffeine, gluten or chemicals. Great for athletes, runners and active consumers. “
ReNew Life has a new Fiber Smart Line. I tried out the ultimate chia and Natural triple fiber. The chia is great to make into a pudding (just 1-2 tbsp. chia with coconut or almond milk and let it soak.) Extra omegas, yes please!
The natural triple fiber is made from oat bran, flaxseed, and acacia fiber. I have been mixing in a few scoops to my husbands oatmeal and in my muffin batter. Great addition to baking for sure! For your free coupon, go here!
Other FOOD FOCUS- nutrient dense snack/meal combos.
Kale salad with berries, onion, grapeseed oil, jasmine rice, and sunflower seeds.
Gluten Free toast with fresh figs, maple syrup, and creamy PB Free Nuttzo.
Oh and I might have a HEALTHY BITES FALL Flavor FOCUS but it’s still undecided. Pumpkin Dark Chocolate or Pumpkin Coconut PB for October flavor?? Laura, does this count as Strange but good? Actually, it’s probably not strange to most of us. haha.
Fall Fitness FOCUS—> FORM, STRENGTH, and CORE!
I’ve been working on a burpee challenge in my strength and condition class. The last 5 minutes of each class, we do burpees. No set pace. No high reps. Just focusing on using all our strength and getting the form right. It’s amazing what that kind of FOCUS can really do for the core. Try it!
*note– that should be 1 minute boat pose, not 1 boat pose. and for pendulum swings, look here!
What’s your Fall Focus? Do you have one?
You need one.
