Quote of the Day: “Nobody who says, ‘I told you so’ has ever been, or will ever be, a hero.” ~ Ursula K. Le Guin

Exercise of the Day: CrossFit

Affirmation: “I get stronger everyday in mind and body.”

Tip: The old saying ‘you snooze, you lose’ couldn’t be more accurate when it comes to shedding pounds. Depriving your body of sleep can speed up the aging process and deter your weight-loss efforts. The brain craves carbohydrates when you’re tired, so you could unknowingly sabotage even the best laid plans. Aim for a good seven hours (minimum) of shuteye every night to allow your body to restore and to protect vital organ functions. Believe it or not an hour of sleep burns more calories than an hour of watching TV. So power down the old boob tube and catch some zzz’s.
