“You’ve got mail!” As a second grade little girl, I froliced in the playground with my best friends and awaited the day when I would get mail. In fact, every time I heard these words from my teacher, Mrs. Nelson, I leaped for joy knowing that I had received mail from someone special. Even now, getting the smallest note by mail makes me happy because I realize how I am progressively growing up and managing my life on my own.
Have you ever finished a workout and wondered what could supplement your body with a healthy snack? I know that when I’m done with practice my tummy is ready to munch and crunch on anything, even chips. However, I acknowledge that eating fats after a long run will only result in me feeling terrible the next day. I also recognize that my body needs a lot of natural vitamins, greens, carbohydrates, and tons of protein.
