Good job today walking/sprinting and learning about what a fat, carbohydrate, and protein are and what they do for your body. Remember that you need carbohydrates to fuel your body. I love fruit as a main carbohydrate as they are loaded with good sugars, nutrients, and are easy to digest. Eat proteins to rebuild your cells, tissues, organs, and bones and fat for satiety and releasing sugars slowly into the blood stream.

Nice job today playing full court basketball and mixing in squats and lunges. Some of you will be sore in the morning. Get to bed early tonight.

Healing Power Of Sleep

*ideal rest occurs between 10pm and 6am.
*sleep during the hours of 10pm-2am repairs our bodies. Immune cells are released to seek out and destroy cancer cells, bacteria, viruses, and other harmful agents.
*between 2am-6am, sleep lets our bodies enter a stage of psychic regeneration(brain), and the immune system is supported by chemicals released by the brain.
