How do I run at 40? Part 2!

I ‘m still going to focus a bit on working out because…hey, that’s what I do. I train 6 days week (most weeks). Tuesday is leg day…and has been for a long time. I change up what exercises I do but there is always some variation of a squat and lunge involved. I also work in glute exercises, hip thrusters being my favourite! Why? Strong glutes are the key to speed, vertical, little to no back pain, and lower body injury prevention. Plus, 🍑 are in right now 😉 
But what good is a great workout routine if you don’t have good nutrition? I believe in eating what I want (in moderation) when I want. I don’t restrict any foods but do limit processed food as much as possible…except chocolate 🍫! (This isn’t a secret to most, but in case you didn’t know, I eat chocolate every day. Check out my previous blogs for some delicious chocolate recipes.) Food gives you energy, it helps to build muscle, which we need (more than most realize), it improves our mood, and a whole lot more. This is an example of most of what I eat in a day. Yes, I forgot to get a picture of my dark chocolate. 

Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, a weights…perfect day!
