You have excuses. You feel like crap. You are constantly tired. Your kids take up all your time and you can’t make time for you. You do so many things for so many other people. You are not healthy and possibly overweight. During the week, your life revolves around work. Because of your week routine, your diet consists of coffee and pastries for breakfast, burger and fries for lunch, and maybe another form of take out for dinner. If you are having a good day, maybe you prepared your dinner at home.
Over the past few weeks, I have blogged about ways to help you drop the excuses and take steps to make your life healthier during the course of one week. The posts were broken down as follows:
- Preparing Healthier Weekly Meals
- Working in an Office
- Eating on the Road
- Planning Multiple Workouts
- Maximizing the Commute
These five articles are concepts to help you become a better you. If you want to stop feeling like crap or feeling tired, do something. Change something.
My life didn’t change overnight. Over the course of several weeks I took steps to own me using the concepts in my previous articles. The first part in fixing me was getting me moving. As I got moving more, I really wanted to lose weight and feel better, so I started logging my food to better understand why the weight wasn’t dropping faster. I honestly didn’t think my diet was all that bad. Was I ever wrong. Many meals averaged ~1000 calories and my macronutrient ratios (proteins, carbs, and fats) were terrible. I used this data to make changes.
I might not be a nutritionist, but I have successfully become a healthier person using the tools I have shared. If you are looking for help in getting moving and feeling better, drop the excuses and call me.
