Everyone is aware that vitamins are essential for our bodies.  Everyone is also aware that NO ONE EVER FOLLOWS the essential checklists of adding only goodness to our bodies.  Well, let me tell you how bad I needed vitamins added to my diet, BADDDD!  I knew something was missing from my body when I started to feel sluggish after hot yoga.  I thought because I eat so healthy and I had never felt fatigue that I did not have to take a multi vitamin daily.  Boy was I wrong.  We all need to take a multivitamin but If you are doing any type of exercise daily your need of vitamins is critical.  My sister has been taking a vitamin called gene u so I decided to try them.  The next day I had more energy, felt more aware, and had increased concentration.  I immediately went to GNC and picked up Women's Essential Multi Vitamin.  I take 2 daily.  So everyone reading this, you do not have to get fancy or spend loads of money on vitamins, just make sure you are taking a multi vitamin!  I feel like a million bucks again with only that simple addition to my daily routine.  

Workout: 1 hour Hot Vinyasa Flow
Breakfast:  2 egg whites with 2 table spoons of green pepper and 2 table spoons of onion.  1/2 slice of fat free cheese.


 Snack:  Half banana with 1 tea spoon peanut butter


Lunch: 3 Lettuces wraps with 1 small chopped chicken breast, 1 tea spoon chopped cashews, and 1 table spoon low fat ranch.  


Dinner:  Shake 1 scoop of RIVALUS™ Promasil™ - Soft Serve Vanilla and 1/2 scoop Pumpkin Pie lean shake.  

 
 
This month is a tough month for me.  
I am on a strict diet because I am filming a fitness video!  
Below is my food blog for March 13, 2013
Breakfast:  Greek non fat yogurt with chia seeds
Snack:  Apple & non fat cottage cheese
Lunch:  Protein shake with 1/2 scoop GNC Pumpkin Lean shake and 1 scoop RIVALUS PROMASIL-SOFT SERVE VANILLA!  HERE'S THE LINK: RIVALUS™ Promasil™ - Soft Serve Vanilla

I would recommend to keep eating out EXTREMELY LIMITED if you are trying to lose weight.  You can not control what restaurants add to your food and sometimes even the items that sound healthy are loaded with hidden fat and calories.
