Your Body Is A Gift

Image
It was like I had a major light bulb moment. I mean for the last 6 years, weight loss has always been a goal along with getting more physically fit and stronger. And I've heard people say that you only have one body, and you need to take care of it blah blah blah...

But it's like I felt this on a personal level - like WAKE UP GIRL! You have ONE BODY. It's YOUR responsibility to take care of the GIFT that you have been given. I experienced this while I was in bed with pain in both of my feet. My right foot was throbbing from the arthritis, and my left foot was in as much pain from my plantar fasciitis. In that moment it didn't take a genius to figure out that my body is really dealing with a lot of inflammation. And that I had been eating more for fun than for healing and nutrition.

It was definitely another nudge for me to really work on focusing to eat with a purpose. Oh, another highly processed cookie, another scoop of ice cream, another handful of marshmallows re…

Pre-workout or Post Workout You can be #fuelledbyhemp

I have been compensated in the form of a gift card/money/coupon and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions expressed are mine and honest in nature.

My workout routines usually consist of early morning workouts before I take Lil Man to pre-school, or working out while he is at preschool. That usually results in me being rushed for pre-workout or post workout fuel.

Normally, I don't eat before working out if I run when I first get up. But I've found that if I have to wait until mid-morning, I usually require a little something in the tank. And I always require something post workout.

I had the opportunity to try Hemp Heart Bars from Manitoba Harvest.



I'll be honest,
it wasn't love at first bite. But after a few bites, my taste buds warmed up to the idea. And it was a pleasant post-workout snack.


Coming in at 240 calories with 10 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber, and 13 grams of carbs (8 of those sugar),  for the chocolate flavor, I felt it was a nice pre or post workout fuel. (hence their hashtag #fueledbyhemp) Believe it or not, I actually enjoyed the apple cinnamon flavor the best which surprised me. And it did fill me up. I never get enough fiber in my diet, so the fiber in the hemp heart bars were an added bonus for me. 

Currently, you can win your favorite hemp product each month by simply tagging @manitobaharvest and use the hashtag #fuelledbyhemp to be automatically entered to WIN your favorite hemp food product each month.  Please note - their monthly drawing is open to anyone submitting photos that is over the age of 18, residing in either Canada or the United States and that does not work for Manitoba Harvest (currenlty or previously). No purchase necessary.

Also, until March 31, 2016,  you can use the discount code hhbarlaunch1015 will get you 15% off from Manitoba Harvest. 

I found the Hemp Heart bars to be convenient and a nice choice for a pre or post workout fuel. Between the protein and the fiber, they did keep me full longer.

So, are you #fuelledbyhemp? If not, maybe it's time to start ;)
