2 Wheels Fast Feet

by Kassi

Two wheels fast feet.  What does that mean to me?

When I first heard Two Wheels Fast Feet, I thought of kids riding their bikes around the nieghborhood, and others playing tag or having races. Basically, I think of kids being active.

Being active is important.  Get outside, and get active. Some kids don’t realize how important that is. I have noticed lots of kids my age would rather be inside on electronics. I have to admitt, I like my laptop, A LOT, but I would rather be outside playing with friends and siblings.

When you hear the word exercise, or active, what does that remind you of? It reminds me of adults doing boring workouts in the gym!! But the truth is, thats not all you can do to excersise! I do lots of FUN outdoor activities!! I like riding my bike with my family, running my dog around the neighborhood, and also jumping rope!!

I am home-schooled, so me and my brother play outside ALL the time!! We run through sprinklers, we ride bikes, we play tag with friends, and ALWAYS have fun!! But even if you do go to school, there will always be a time when you can be active outside! There is NO exuse for staying inside!! Even if you do have to do home-work, get it done, then play!!

In my opinion, 2 Wheels Fast Feet, is a great thing to have… It reminds kids to get outside and get active, while having fun.

Enjoy Your Ride

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.

Answer:

Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
