As described in yesterdays post I was feeling low energy in the morning which lent itself from the day before. I did a minimum workout in the morning. I decided to make a few changes to my diet like adding a healthy greek yogurt and mixed berries back in the breakfast which were both combined with a can of tuna. For lunch I added a little more salad to my big ass much salad and also ate a can of sardines. For dinner I ate a small piece of NY Strip Steak that I seasoned and cooked on the grill with fresh mushrooms on the side. This was the perfect accompaniment to some big fat, steamed asparagus and a half of a baked sweet potato.
Increasing my energy in to balance my energy out seemed to work good as I didn’t suffer from burn out half way through my workday yesterday and this morning I am back to working out at peak level. While eating just a little bit more I still managed to drop a little bit of body weight while maintaining my blood sugar at a healthy level.
As I look back on the days before me I am starting to realize that this is not a difficult program to operate on a daily basis. With just a half hour of strength training, a half hour of cardio, eating healthy and sleeping well I am starting to make some pretty significant changes in the way I feel as a whole. I am starting to feel stronger and more confident in all aspects of my life. Health is never something we should take for granted and never left to another to both assess and cure alone. As no one ever wants to become sick it is really left to the individual to take personal responsibility to learn about and do those things they need to do to maintain a healthy body and healthy mind. We all need to take a step out of our comfort zones and create a lifetime plan that will ensure that when sickness comes around, and it will, our bodies are well prepared to take on what ever comes our way. I am not saying that we all have to become top fit athletes, but just small efforts each day go a long way.
Through small steps each day we build a level of confidence to ensure us that we can move forward and meet the challenges of each day. Performance at all levels of life are heightened and before long we find ourselves in wonderful situations we never thought we would ever be in. Confidence is not something we feel about ourselves alone. It is recognizable by everyone around us and can be as contagious as the smile on our faces. People will start to notice and yes, they will ask. And all you have to tell them is that you are making small efforts each day to become a better you. It’s that simple. So what are your plans for this Saturday?
