It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life and get lost in the daily routine. With fitness, it’s easy to get caught up with losing weight and battling the scale.
But sometimes you just need to take a step back, take a deep breath and realize the important things in life otherwise it will just pass you by. I once got some advice that you need to “slow down to speed up”. Life comes at you fast and with fitness, there’s more and more information out there about the latest diet craze or revolutionary ab machine. So when it comes to reaching your goals, when you’re having trouble planning your meals or your workouts and when you’re getting really stressed out about things, that’s when you need to take a step back, calm down and get re-focused on the things that are most important….and that speeds up your results.
So for example, with nutrition, think about the biggest things you can do to get the biggest results and don’t worry so much about every little thing.
Some big bang for your buck things would be eating breakfast every single day, small frequent clean meals every 3-4 hrs, lean protein at every meal to boost metabolism, half your body weight in ounces of water each day, green veggies at every meal, and cutting out processed carbs, pop and alcohol.
I know you’re busy and are going through life a mile a minute but sometimes you just need to relax and enjoy the ride! I know I’m guilty of this as well and it’s something I’m trying to work on.
