Are you ON FIRE?!
“You cannot brighten another’s path without first lighting your own.” ~ Frank McKinney
Powerful-yet difficult words to live by. ‘Tis the season of hustle and bustle! There are a million things to do, and never enough hours in the day to do them. I advise you to SLOW DOWN each day. Take a breath. Do something to light your own fire from within…so that you may be able to bring light to others! Get your workout in-no matter what. Fuel with good nutrition each day-no matter what. Drink a lot of water-no matter what. Get enough rest each night-no matter what. Do these simple things each day and I can assure you that there will be MORE of you to give to the world!
Warrior NUTRITION Tip: Stay away from Agave! Did you know that Agave Nectar is even worse than eating refined sugar? It is claimed to be natural, raw and marketed as a diabetic-friendly sweetener that doesn’t spike blood sugar levels. Agave Nectar is made by processing the bulb with heat and chemicals until a sweet concentrate is produced. It also has an extremely high amount of fructose which is a simple sugar that is found in almost any mass produced, processed food and plays a huge role in obesity. A diet high in fructose has been linked to everything from cancer growth, memory loss and inflammation, which can lead to all kinds of minor & chronic DIS-EASE. Agave syrup has a fructose content somewhere around 70%, if not higher! Almost 20% more fructose than high fructose corn syrup. Stick to honey, raw stevia leaf, coconut palm sugar, & even REAL maple syrup if you need to sweeten things up.
