I find that when I'm worried or have things on my mind my obsessive personality really kicks in so lately (past 3 months) I have been on a huge exercise kick. It is really very good for you and a much better improvement over loads of wine and since it does the body good I actually look good in my bikini this year!

What I'm struggling with is tweaking my diet to go along with an increased weight training/cardio exercise routine. I'm very good at eating healthy and eating all the right things but I struggle with timing the intake of proteins and carbs right after a workout. I think mostly because when I work out hard I'm not hungry. I'm back on the protein smoothies and that seems to help because if I don't do it right I feel like a slug by the end of the day.

Not much point to this post but if you have suggestions for yummy power packed smoothies - pass 'em on!

I don't know of any protien packed smoothie recipes, because I just toss a bunch of stuff in mine and drink away, but am very impressed by your discipline. I get obsessive too in the same way - exercise, eating healthy, etc. etc. Although, I can't say that I look good in my bathing suit as of yet. I keep looking back to my honeymoon photos when I looked my best and that is my inspiration. It was also pre-kids, so I had great abs, thighs, you name it! If I come across any good recipes while I'm surfing, I'll pass them on!

I especially love the 'want more energy' - it's like gatorade with added B vitamins, it really does give more energy.
