A great fitness workout needs to be complemented with a healthy nutritious diet in order to attain a fitter and healthier body. So, with regards to diet, I’m pretty careful as to what goes into my mouth though I have to admit that sometimes I still succumb to temptations and snack on food which I would have otherwise avoid it.
With my busy schedule and lack of time to prepare my own meals, I found myself snacking on these muesli bars that contain wholesome food minus off all the preservatives. I just discovered that Carman’s muesli bars are one of healthiest snack bars available at local supermarkets. It’s affordable too. A dollar a bar?
Another way of curbing my hunger pangs is to snack on fresh fruits like bananas and apples. I was elated when I saw a basket full of apples at Radiance PhysioFit as I don’t have to fret about what I need to snack on after a workout. After my Muay Thai training class, I would grab an apple to munch on before I leave the gym. In my opinion, it’s these little things that motivates people to come to the gym for a great workout.
These days, I am also experimenting with energy bar recipes where I attempt to make my own energy bars using raw foods. Because energy bars sold at health food stores could be really expensive so I thought I might as well make my own at home. It turns out to be really easy to make your own energy bars or energy balls! Some of the common ingredients found in energy bars like whey protein, seeds, nuts and oats could be easily purchased from health food stores or supermarkets. I will be coming up with my own version of energy bars soon ( with my iherb stash!) so do keep a look out for that!
One of the ways to track and monitor your fitness progress is to use this body analyser which analyse your body composition and calculate your overall fitness level. I am proud to say that my fitness level has increased quite a fair bit from 69 to 73 out of 100. For some very odd reasons, it does felt like I am studying for an exams. Though I have not achieve an A grade yet, I know I am on my way to reach greater heights.
