Getting exercise started is the hardest part for me but I found that getting up early and going for a 1 mile quickly paced walk before work every day has actually given me more energy than the days when I slept until the last possible minute and rushed to work. My energy lasts throughout the whole day. I don't need energy drinks, extra vitamins, or that 5 hour energy stuff you see on tv. I never thought I could wake up early since I've never been a morning person but I love it now! 311
I use Dr. Scholls walking shoes ($50 at Sears) and they make that mile a little more difficult but I can feel the burn in my calves a lot more so I know they are getting stronger. You can also add ankle weights if you don't want to get special shoes.
Red symbolizes strength & power, health, and vitality. In Chinese culture, wearing red is the color of luck and happiness. If you need energy, wear red or place a shot of red on your desk! Buy a new red wallet to attract wealth. Red promotes passion and love. Red stimulates the appetite so don't overdo or eat off a red plate!
A body needs energy and a person craves carbs when they dont get enough sleep, which can help pack on the pounds. Snack on a handful of nuts as they have healthy fats, fiber, and loads of protein, They will help you feel full fast!
