I want & deserve a life that is so much bigger than food obsession.
I want & deserve a body I feel great in.
I want more than obesity.
I want more than unhappiness.
I want more than insecurity.
But, wanting & deserving doesn’t create change.
Only I can do that.
I decided not to settle for the life I had been living. A life of overeating, constantly indulging, severely restricting, always being tired & sad.
I was meant for more than that & I decided to work for it.
Sometimes, it was as straight forward as seeing binary choices:
- choices that create the life I want
- choices that anchor me to a life I don’t
Life is short. It can be amazing or it can be empty. Most of that depends on what you decide to choose, day in and day out.
I’ll be talking more about this on the podcast, because I think it’s so important and I don’t want you to miss out on your best life. I think you were meant for more, too. Much more.
Today’s workout didn’t look bad on paper but holy hell was it rough!
“Escape from Wonderland”
75 double unders
50 Air Squats
25/18 Calorie Row (the slash means men do 25 and women do 18)
Let me just tell you: my legs were TOAST after that workout! Man, it was a great one! Hard as nails but so good!
On the food front:
Today is a travel day but I’ve packed my Paleo Power Meals. It is a holiday weekend in the states so I wanted to make today really clean to boost my energy and create a little margin for some drinks this weekend.
After my workout I had 2 grilled chicken strips and while working from a Starbucks later in the afternoon, I pulled out a cobb salad from my backpack. I totally don’t care if people look at me sideways! It was delicious and it makes me feel so much better than most takeout.
I felt hungry as it got closer to evening but I decided not to snack because I was going out to eat. I prefer to be hungry for my meals versus just “ready to eat”.
I went out for dinner and had salmon & tuna sashimi and 1 piece of a spicy eel roll. Oh, and some broccoli.
This weekend I’ll definitely enjoy a couple drinks, but I’m going to pick one day on which I’ll enjoy them, instead of justifying something special each day for several days. That just works best for me.
Love you guys! Be safe this weekend and make yourself feel amazing!
