Do you like routine? For things to go according to plan? For smooth sailing?
For the most part, that describes me perfectly. Make a plan and stick to the plan. Make a list and check it off in order, one at a time.
Unfortunately there is usually something that gets in the way.
It's called LIFE.
The project gets changed, an appointment doesn't show up, a vendor doesn't come through, Nancy and I get into an argument, or if you ask my kids the worst of all, the internet goes out. The horror!
It's no secret that all of this causes STRESS.
When you walk into the gym to train today, you are going to notice the training board is different. It's out of order. The warmup is on the right and the training is on the left. It's unfamiliar. I think it's the first time in 11 years I've written it up that way. It may be uncomfortable. It may even stress you out a little. It was done on purpose.
Contrary to popular opinion stress is not a bad thing. We actually need stress to survive and even thrive.
Too MUCH stress though, and we start to break down. Emotionally, physically, psychologically - all of it.
But it's not like you can't do something about it. The "stress monster" can be tamed. Every day when you walk in the gym, train appropriately, and recover well, you are helping tame stress.
You are building RESILIENCY. Toughness. The ability to bounce back.
And it's not the only thing that we can do to address stress.
Healthy Eating is not optional when you want to tame stress and build your resiliency muscle. The way our bodies function at the cellular level has everything to do with our quality of nutrition. Most disease and death in the United States can directly be linked to lifestyle choices - inactivity and lousy eating habits. The human body has some inborn resilience, but eventually all the excess sugar, fat, calories and alcohol is going to cause it to break down.
So let's do something about it.
Today registration opens for the 2019 Fall Fat Loss Challenge.
This FREE challenge is designed to help you break the habits of poor nutrition through 4 very specific ways:
- Creating Awareness
- Recognizing Full
- Nourished not just "Fed"
- Hormone Regulation and Decision Making
We want to work on breaking the cycle of Emotional Eating, and build resiliency through a healthier body.
There is no drug known to man that is as effective as regular exercise and proper nutrition.
No pill, potion, or lotion will undo poor exercise and nutrition habits.
Your Stress isn't going away. You can't drink it out of existence or eat it under the table. I've tried. Maybe you've tried. It doesn't work. My former 280 pound self will tell you that.
Let's do something better.
Something that is proven to work, every time it's tried, and doesn't come with any side effects.
Except feeling better, if that bothers you.
I don't think it does, why is why you need to head on over and join the 2019 Fall Fat Loss Challenge right now.
See you there!
