Sunday Stroll

What an absolutely gorgeous day in OSLO<3 70 degrees and sunshine, you just cant help but smile when it is this kind of weather. This kind of weather also calls for a jog out to Bygdøy with my sweet friend vicki.

I wanted to tell you all about a great app for tracking your runs, the app is called MapMyRun and it will tell you the duration of your run, distance, pace, and it will map out the exact course you ran. When you’re done with your jog you can go ahead and save the workout, which is really nice because you can use it as a log.

Hehe as you can see this workout isn’t tooo impressive, but we also stopped and enjoyed the weather once we got to the beach, and I forgot to pause the app.

RISE AND GRIND (LITERALLY)

Good morning all!

This morning I woke up and made a juice for breakfast. Juicing in the morning before you eat anything else is a great way to start the day, and super health beneficial. Actually, the best time to consume juice is on an empty stomach. Try to drink your juice at least 30 minutes before a meal. When you drink juice while your body is hungry for nutrients, all the nutrients are quickly absorbed. Similarly, when you grab a donut or something harmful, it is just as quickly absorbed as well. SO CHOOSE WISELY. Try to drink fruit juices in the first half of your day, because they provide complex carbohydrates to fuel your day. Towards the second half lean towards vegetable juices.

You should drink your juice right away! Juice does not hold as well as in its natural form. When exposed to air, the juice quickly oxidizes and spoils. So drink your juice shortly after making it. You will know if your juice is spoiled because it will turn brown and have a metallic taste to it. If you have a high centrifugal juicer, the high speed spinning causes a change in +ve and -ve of the juice and causes it to oxidize quicker. However if you have a gear juicer, like I do, you can store your juices up to 24 hours.

This morning I used 3 carrots, 1 orange, 1 green apple, and 1 cucumber, and it made 16 ounces.

So I challenge you to to trade out a bad habit for a better one today! For example, switch out your daily coffee with a fresh juice:) your body will thank you.
