Fruit: It's what's for breakfast

FRUIT, Fruit, the magical...well fruit.  Yesterday morning I had a cup full of strawberries, grapes and pineapple along with a poached egg. I needed some protein as I did 2 workouts after! 



GO pineapple! I used to eat a lot of pineapple when I played Roller Derby--Good for healing bruises! 


Pineapples are nutritionally packed members of the bromeliad family. This delightful tropical fruit is high in the enzyme bromelain and the antioxidant vitamin C, both of which plays a major role in the body's healing process.
Bromelain is a natural anti-inflammatory that has many health benefits and encourages healing. 

According to Dr. Andrew Weil, bromelain is very effective in treating bruises, sprains and strains by reducing swelling, tenderness and pain. This powerful anti-inflammatory effect can also help relieve rheumatoid arthritis symptoms and reduce postoperative swelling. Additionally, the bromelain contained in fresh pineapple can relieve indigestion. This enzyme helps break down the amino acid bonds in proteins, which promotes good digestion. (source)



I also looked over some goals that I carry in my wallet! I got this great little quad fold brochure that is about the size of a credit card from I Set My Goals dot com ! 
It has 5 different goal categories and 5 goals with in those! Pretty detailed for a tiny little FREE print out!

I love pulling mine out as I am waiting somewhere or seeing it in my wallet. It's SO awesome to be able to see what goals I wrote down and achieved already! For me this year is so different than most. I had a lot of goals on my mind, THREE big ones planned and I don't believe that I will be meeting those, but I achieved even bigger things that I didn't anticipate at all, so I am not down about it! 

What goal setting tools do you use?? Do you set them yearly, monthly?
