Good morning on this feezing Friday! Everyone wherever you are please be safe and take it slow if you’re traveling through a lot of bad weather like we are having here in Kentucky! We are expected to get some pretty icky weather here, from freezing rain to snow and beyond.lol. Just because the weather stinks it doesn’t mean I can slack off and so here we go…

 

Because I knew about the weather I got up super duper early and killed a quick workout! That’s 4 of the 6 I need this week to be good again so it’s looking great so far! This morning after the cardio, which is going great at the 30-minute amount I worked chest and triceps with interval training. The gym was unusually active for so early in the morning I guess we all had the same idea about getting it done early.lol. My body honestly feels like I could broad jump the moon today, I am just so full of energy! I think I’m going to need it with all this weather nonsense today!

On the plate yesterday I had more honey garlic chicken with a monster salad and sunflower seeds. My second meal was a smoothie and a small helping of ground sausage with coconut oil and butter. No bulletproof coffee at all yesterday and I’m not really sure why because I tend to have it every day. I gotta tell you guys not counting calories has really helped me relax and focus better on what’s important for me. The fast yesterday was only about 16 hours and it felt just as easy as the other fasts. I’m finally to the point that I can eat when I want to and I know I have a goal for the day as to how long to fast. The only time I plan to count calories is if I have a cheat day so that I don’t go too crazy and stay relatively close 2k calories. I’m thinking of having a cheat day today but honestly, I really don’t feel like I’m craving anything out of the ordinary.

I’ve been reading about everyone’s goals for the new year and I think it’s great! We are coming into the meat of the month of January and this is the time that people slowly lose grip on all those big goals and dreams they wrote down! Please recognize that those goals are important to you and that you can do it and it may start to get easy to miss a workout here and there and get complacent but hold fast. Remember why you made that list in the first place and if you truly want those things, double down on your efforts in the coming weeks. Most polls show that 78% of people stop working on their new years’ resolutions in the 2nd or 3rd week of January. The great news is those people who continue thru the month of January have an 80% percent chance of staying with it! So that tells me that if we can just get thru these tough couple weeks we will get into a rhythm of goal chasing that will continue on all year! I believe in all of you and I know that greatness is embedded deep inside all of us, we can do this! Have a fantastic weekend and have a fun time reaching your goals!

Your Diet Sucks!

Good morning, Good morning, Gooooood morning! I’m really excited to write this blog today because I have been thinking about this topic for quite some time. While doing research about dieting It”s baffling just how much people do not get along when it comes to healthy eating. It’s very much like a gang mentality when it comes to beliefs. I’m aware that people with like-minded viewpoints tend to want to stick together, that comfort comes in the form of others giving them confidence by reaffirmation. I’m a man and when my girl tells me I’m right about something and backs up what I say, I do find myself feeling like a superhero. That doesn’t happen nearly as much as I think it should but that’s a topic for another time! Ha Ha.

 

Honestly, though it has gotten completely out control when it comes to dieting folks. It’s like a gang and if you’re down with Meat than you hate Vegetarians. If you like a Green Leafy Vegetables than your against those who eat Bacon! When did we get to the point that we had to be against something just because we are for something? I eat a low carb ketogenic diet because it makes me feel good and I love eating a lot of fat.  I’ve found something that seems to work wonders for me but I’m under no assumption that it will work for everyone. In fact, I’m absolutely positive this diet will not work for everyone. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that at all. Truth be told it may not work for me after a long period of time because my taste for different foods may change and I may grow tired of the same exact type of eating.

 

We all know that we are all different and we can agree on that point, however when it comes to dieting it’s like we draw a line in the sand and say “oh hell no!” You do Keto, why the hell do you do that?” “You eat one meal a day, are you crazy that will never work for you!” Not only do we not understand each other’s needs and goals but we decide that one size fits all. The only way to truly lose weight is to be in a caloric deficit they will tell you. That’s great info but if you’re trying to gain weight than how does that help you? Even if your goal is to lose fat the whole caloric deficit thing is not always true. Some people can eat tons of calories and still lose weight, while others are strict as can be and lose hardly anything. There is no such thing as THE way to diet.

 

It’s really simple when you think about it. The best diet plan is the one that gets’s you the desired results you’re looking for! You could be doing it to shed a few pounds or to gain some. Maybe you’re eating a certain way for health reason like type 2 diabetes and other factors. I’m going to let you in on a little secret just about every way of dieting out there is right. People lose weight all the time by eating way over the calories that they should(I know your out there and I hate you all with a passion!) There are people who eat exactly the number of calories they are supposed to and run from New York to Colorado every day and don’t lose a single pound! I’m kidding of course but the truth is You may find that mixing it up will help give you the best results. If eating Keto is causing you anxiety and you’re not getting the desired effect then please don’t do it. It may work for you for say a year and then you notice you’re not losing any weight. If that’s the case maybe eating a high protein diet and exercise may trigger your weight loss if that’s your goal. Be flexible, you’re not going to listen to just one song for the rest of your life and no one is saying you have to stay on one plan your whole life either. Well actually they are saying it but I’m telling you those people suck. lol.

love to hear your thoughts on this topic as always! Have a wonderful day!
