I don’t why, but I really believe these energy bites, or any energy bar or bite really do give you an added boost of energy before a workout.  Technically you can take these after a workout too, if you feel fatigued after a workout too.  But me, I prefer indulging in one 15 minutes before a workout.

_DSC1290 _DSC1291Do you like it?  Would it motivate you if you had a designated room to work out?

I enjoy working out at home and I workout to a 20 minute cardio and strength training video using YouTube.

Back to these energy bites.  I am telling you, these bites have magic powers.  Well, at least I would like to think so.
