What Women Want

To be a disciplined woman in the year 2005 is a very powerful concept. To resist the temptations of your environment, to have strong control and higher expectations of yourself above mediocrity and to have the will not to “go with the flow”, is truly a rebel stature in our North American lifestyle.

I don’t think that anyone would rebuke the fact that energy output = energy input. Life is energy, isn’t that what women want? All life arises out of choice. Making the right choices in the right combination create a positive balance of energy. Sounds easy in the written word, but a true metamorphosis is the most profound challenge and worthwhile undertaking that life has to offer. And the benefits are not only self-directed, they rebound to children, family, friends and colleagues; even a mere stranger can be positively affected.

Let’s start our journey with a trip to the health food store. There are so many fantastic products on the market today that can enhance athletic performance, stamina, attitude, beauty, and the list goes on…I find the blender to be a key component in my choice making when I purchase products.

I begin and end my day with a whey protein shake. I find this helps me to stay lean, keep my energy level up and believe it or not, it really helps to curb my sweet tooth. I sleep better at night and have a more positive outlook in life. I add Cory's Sport Oil to my whey protein shakes. Udo says “take as much oil until your skin feels soft” and I must say I have soft skin and my joints also appreciate the essential fatty acids.

I also add glutamine powder to my shakes. This boosts my immune system, helps support wound healing and fights infection. Glutamine relieves muscle soreness and I believe it helps me to think more clearly. Another component that I really like is creatine monohydrate. Many woman think this is a “guy thing”, but trust me ladies, woman can benefit from this product, especially if power and added strength are something you desire (I AM WOMAN, HEAR ME ROAR!)
