A simple way to know if you are functioning at full capacity, recovering from workouts, and fueling your body properly is to check in with the 4 H’s. Each morning you should wake up experiencing all the H’s.
HEALTHY- You feel great. Rarely get sick. Crave nutritious foods. Injury free and feeling fab!
HAPPY- You wake up ready to take on the day full speed ahead. This doesn’t mean you have to be on cloud 9 all the time, but you have a sense of fulfillment and are excited about what the day has in store. If you are restricting your calories, you have less calories for your brain to use. We’ve all heard of being hangry. Less fuel for your brain means less chances to think happy thoughts. The default state of the brain is to look for the negative. Being negative requires less calories. If you have enough calories you are more able to conciously choose your thoughts and you can choose to be happy.
HORNY- Horniess is all about the hormones. If your hormones are whacked out, you are going to have no desire to rip your man’s/woman’s clothes off. Check in with how you feel when you wake up each morning. If morning sex is not on the brain, something could be off hormonally.
HUNGRY- When your metabolism is working properly, you will wake up hungry and ready to eat breakfast after that morning sex sesh! If on a regular basis you find yourself not wanting any food for multiple hours upon waking, then something is off.
