And the MONDAY starts off…EXCELLENT.

Monday’s are usually filled with exercise for me & I LOVE it. 

Morning workout at the Y that included intervals on the upright bike + abs, shoulders, & inner thigh exercises.  Followed up with STEP-IT-UP class this evening (which always makes me a sweaty-mess) & ending with BodyPUMP.  I taught both classes back-to-back tonight – no, I did not do it without the help of an energy drink!

These have also become part of each of my meals.  The Chromium I only take with 2 meals, but the L-Carnitine I make sure I get 4 in each day…for 2000mg total.

Both help your body utilize glucose & keep blood sugar levels in check.  The L-Carnitine is also supposed to BOOST the Metabolism! Whoop!
