No bake, almost zero time and effort, and will disappear before your eyes...
Thoroughly mix the peanut butter, honey, spirulina, and cocoa until smooth. Add and mix remaining ingredients. Form into 1-inch balls (about two bites each). You may need to add a bit more peanut butter or honey to make the mixture sticky enough. Refrigerate or freeze.
1. Prioritize. Harder than it sounds, because it means you’ll need to dig into the roots of your value system. “I don’t have time,” actually means, “I don’t value this as much as I value other things.” It’s a fact that daily exercise saves your life and causes you to live longer. It’s a fact that exercise makes you happier, smarter, and more physically attractive. Exercise increases your strength, stamina, and overall energy. It combats stress and shields against many diseases. Not exercising can give you the opposite of these benefits, so it’s worth knuckling down and take inventory on your values.
2. Troubleshoot. Acknowledge nasty barriers and excuses and put on your thinking cap to overcome them.
3. Put your shoes on no matter what. Even if you’re full of lazy bones and questionable effort, lace up anyway. Justify that any workout is better than nothing. But then, guaranteed, endorphins will take over and drive you forward. Turn your doubting mind off and let your body guide you instead. You’ll soon find that fiery muscles, gasping lungs, and a pounding heart are the best part of your day. And you’ll finish, energized for the day and looking forward to tomorrow's workout.
Fitness matters. In other words, it’s a big deal. Fact: Every human needs daily physical activity to live their best life. Another fact: Just saying, “you must exercise to be healthy” isn’t enough. The Internet is littered with misinformation and quackery about how to exercise. It can confusing, frustrating and, even worse, dangerous.
