As if the morning couldn’t get any better…
IT DID!
Are you surprised? Winking smile
We headed to breakfast thanks to Choose Cherries!

We had cherry smoothies,
an OATMEAL bar all set up with dried cherries,
& a yogurt parfait bowl with frozen cherries!

I also had one of my POWER EGG BOWLS

*recently I’ve added back in some grains into my diet;
and the only reason I cut them out for a while
was the fact that I looked like a whale at the end of the day;

NOT because of the CARB content!
– I love my some carbs

but, from being bloated; so I tried it out to see if that would help!
It did, but I’ve deiced to add some back in every now & then to test it out!

PS I think I spy a BARRE at breakfast!Winking smile

Then we headed to some great presentations!
One of which, talked about the importance of carbs in ones diet
because we use up our Glycogen stores while we work out,
so we need to replenish them!

It was a great topic & I may do a whole post on it
because it was CRAZY the info that we found out!
really makes us think!

He did a whole demo on how when you run,
your glycogen stores are used up
& how it is important to replenish!

Now, he talks about the ELITE athletes that he studies,
which made it SO interesting because it goes into how
lower intensity cardio is a better alternative for burning fat
since when you’re high intensity, you are using a lot of glycogen (carbs)
& not as much fat.

It was a very detailed study that I will have to get the link
to because I’d love to share since I’m not the expert! Winking smile

Headed to some more presentations &
then to ZUMBA with the FITFLUENTIAL CREW!
