Dailey Mail 3/3/13
Hey Weekend Warriors!
I hope you had a GREAT weekend! It’s that time again…to get your mindset RIGHT for something BIG this week!
Can you believe it’s MARCH?! A brand new month filled with endless NEW opportunity – or maybe even an old one you didn’t take advantage of. Use last week’s “W.O.W.”-PREPARE – to fuel your fire to make this an amazing week ahead. Get PREPARED by making your Top 5 list for the week-the TOP 5 goals you most want to achieve. Go ahead and PREPARE your food/snacks for tomorrow, or even the whole week ahead. It just might help you make better nutrition choices all week long! PREPARE to workout! Put your workouts on your weekly calendar just like you would any other workout- and stick to your schedule!
The Dailey LABEL READING TIP: LEARN TO “DECODE” NUTRITION LABELS! Think just because the label says ZERO TRANS FATS = NO trans fats? Think again! Due to loose regulations by the FDA about how food companies have to label ingredients, you can end up consuming more than the recommended daily limit of 1-2 grams unknowingly. Specifically, if there is less than 0.5 grams of trans fat per serving, the food company can label it as having 0 grams of trans fat per serving. This means that there could be up to 0.49 grams in one serving of food and it can say 0 grams on the label. Best bet is to dig through the INGREDIENTS list on the label & learn what to look for! Any time you see ingredients such as “partially hydrogenated” and “hydrogenated” oils.-STAY AWAY! These oils are commonly found in foods that companies make to have a long shelf life. This includes many cookies, crackers, and ready-made meals. Sometimes in the ingredient list, “fully hydrogenated” oils also appear. These do not contain any trans fats because they are made of pure saturated fat. These fats are also unhealthy, although not as harmful as trans fat, and consumption should be limited. Best bet…choose foods that have NO INGREDIENTS such as fresh fruits & veggies, fresh fish & lean meats, and other foods found in their natural state! Stick to the foods that will spoil within a few days if not eaten!
CLASS UPDATE: GAME ON tomorrow! We have THREE Functional Fitness classes on tap with a 6am, 9:30, & 6pm!! Who’s coming when? It will be a GREAT start to the week!
GOT GOALS?! Let’s CRUSH THEM!
