For YEARS I would bust my ass at the gym only to fatten it up in the kitchen.
I believed that as long as I worked out, I could eat whatever I wanted.
I think back to days where I would have a serious sweat "sesh" at the gym and then follow up my intense calorie burn with a sugary-sweet, break the carb bank, mocha frappa-whatever-you-call-it at Coffee Bean.
For years this went on with me always saying, "I workout so much!! Why am I not getting results?!"
I look back now and can't help but giggle at how lost I was when it came to knowing what actually works in transforming your body and health.
But I was reading all the "health" magazines and listening to all the advice from the "gurus".
"My metabolism is busted" I would say.
All those hours spent in the gym, all the pummeling and punishing of my body, all the food journaling...hours wasted man.
So, what does it take to have the health and the body you want?
Here's what I've seen to work time and time again:
- Tame your Stress Monkee (Feed your Zen Monkee)
- Get enough sleep + drink tons of water
- Eat clean
- Move your body
Now, you need ALL of these components in your life to achieve optimum health BUT when you're starting out with making changes, start with #1, then we move on to #2 and so on.
The path to making changes (and making them stick) is by taking SMALL doable steps.
You're already overwhelmed enough pumpkin, let's not add to it by trying to take on everything at once.
This is why I created the monthly Stress Monkee Calendar.
Simple Recipes. Powerful Workouts. Daily Tips to get you ridiculously fit, inside + out.
Print it out or save it to your computer and let's follow along day by day together!
