A mouth full of fudgy frosting on your birthday, a fork full of toasty pecan pie at Thanksgiving, a cold bowl full of cookies ‘n cream on a hot August afternoon: These time-honored treats are among life’s sweetest pleasures, meant to be savored and enjoyed.
Over the next 33 days I will be taking you on a journey.This journey will be a daily documented walk through my life of exercise and nutrition. Today, as well as days 2 & 3 will be more about the preperation and set-up to help me get ready to tackle the next 30 days. I do not normally look at my nutrtion and exercise as "30 day challenges", however that is what I am asking of you. Challenge yourself to be as good as you can be for 30 days. At the end of the 30 days you will see results.
Do any of you wake up with all the intentions in the world to eat healthy, get that amazing workout in AND complete the list of chores you have been pushing back? This is the morning when all of this is going to happen.....Then you wake up.
How many times a day, week, month do you have clients/strangers come up to you and ask you about your nutrition? I am always surprised when I start to break down how many people I talk to about nutrition and find out those numbers range from 30-100+ a month. What advice are you giving them? Are you suggesting the Whole 30 diet? Paleo? Eating Organic? Or just marketing certain grains and vegetables that you have found work for you? Anyway you are answering this question you are helping someone else make money.
Post-Workout Nutrition:Other than breakfast, this could be your most important time to take in food. After exercise (or a game) your body has used up its stores of energy and you need to replenish or “fill the tank back up”. Your body will be like a sponge for nutrients and fluids and you have a 2-hour window where your body is most receptive to nutrients.
