Before hitting the gym, about 30 minutes prior to lifting weights, eat a small pre-workout meal consisting of a slow digesting carb such as oatmeal, an apple, banana or an orange with a high quality whey protein drink (aim for about 30 grams) to increase stamina and strength in the gym.  Be sure to stay well hydrated before, during and after you train. 

Drink a L-Arginine based supplement during your workout to ensure your muscles have the nutrients and energy needed to get you through your tough workouts.  Within 30 minutes of training eat a post-workout recovery meal consisting of a complex carb such as oatmeal and about 30  grams of whey protein.  Take another serving of L-Arginine on an empty stomach before bed to build and repair muscle tissue while you sleep.

An excellent L-Arginine product that gets results fast is Liv International's product, GO Nitrimax.  When I started using it a year ago my body fat dropped and I went from toned to ultra lean -- I love the stuff and can't seem to live without it! =)
Facts about this amazing product...
GO Nitrimax is a power-packed L-Arginine and L-Citrulline Malate Complex formulated to give you the energy you need for a successful workout. L-Arginine is a vitally important amino acid that has been studied for more than fifty years. L-Arginine is used to make nitric oxide, a compound in the body that relaxes blood vessels. Preliminary scientific studies have found that L-Arginine may help with conditions that improve when blood vessels are relaxed, such as atherosclerosis, erectile dysfunction. Additional studies have shown that L-Arginine may enhance immunity, promote the release of the Human Growth Hormone (HGH), and increase muscle mass.

Benefits of L-Arginine and L-Citrulline Malate:

•Supports cardiovascular health

•Enhances blood flow to vital organs

•Decrease recovery time

•Combats the effects of premature cardiovascular aging

•Anti-aging benefits

•Decreases ammonia and lactic acid

•Supports healthy sexual performance

•Helps increase energy production at the cellular level

•May aid in decreasing body fat

Until next time... Train Hard & Live Happy!

"Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil."~James Allen
It’s empowering to know that we can literally alter our life experiences & physique by tapping into the power of your mind.  By having thoughts and feelings that are positive, the mind will be able to create the world of your dreams in great detail.
Your thoughts are like a magnet, a simple thought will have a weak magnetic power just like a small magnet does. A powerful emotion such as joy or fear will have a much greater magnetic pull, thus it will magnetize more of what you are feeling into your life.
Our thoughts are magnetic on every level, that is why “like always attracts like”, it’s a universal law—the Law of Attraction. Being mindful of your thoughts through the power of prayer, visualization, mediation, goal setting and affirmations you will …

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

I absolutely LOVE this time of year! I relish the smell of fall in the air and joy of baking delicious fall desserts for my family. I enjoy baking traditional recipes for my family, however, I don't eat sugar nor do I eat wheat or high carb flours. 
Sugar and high carbs only cause weight gain and inflammation in the body, which is why I eat a clean diet free of trans fats, processed foods, sugars and high carbs.  Protein is also a high priority in my diet, I incorporate protein into my recipes when fitting. I use whey protein isolate in all my baked recipes. 
And for good reason, protein keeps blood sugar level and aids in maintaining muscle mass, which is a must for me to keep my lean physique. So needless to say, I make up a lot of low carb recipes to suite my diet and to continue to have fun baking for my family and friends.
