Being a food blogger involves a lot of cooking, eating and sitting working away in front of the computer. What it does not seem to involve for me is much heart rate increasing exercise.
I want to change this and make more effort with some good old fashion exercise. I am saying this publicly in the hope that this will help me combat those ‘feeling a little bit too lazy to workout’ moments that I sometimes have.
Step one – I have downloaded a few exercise apps onto my phone.
Step two – I have come up with the perfect pre- work out green smoothie recipe filled with good nutrients to help me supercharge me for my workout.
Step three – Drink said smoothie (or even a Green Smoothie Bowl) 30 mins before my workout and exercise away.
Anyone want to join me?
