When we go to the gym, go for a hike, run, swim, bike, etc. we pour all of our energy in to that activity. Let’s consider a WOD at the gym. We push ourselves physically and mentally to perform the best we possibly can so that we can be stronger, better, leaner and faster. We show up on a regular basis, dedicated to achieving those same goals. We know it’s a process so we stick to it week after week, month after month.
So why don’t we do that with our nutrition? Good question. What we eat has a far more significant impact on our physique than what we lift and because of this, we have to exert effort just like we do in the gym. Just like it takes discipline and effort to lift 80% of your max repeatedly in a WOD or to keep throwing yourself down on the floor for burpee after burpee, it takes discipline and effort to regularly make healthy choices and repeatedly say no to foods that aren’t in line with our goals.
Training does not start and end in the gym. Reaching your goals is entirely up to you. It’s a lifestyle. It’s a choice – YOUR choice. RX that shit!
