It’s the little things…

As we enter 2022 I wanted to take a moment to remind you of the “little daily habits” that make health and fitness a lifestyle, a smooth ride instead of a roller coaster. These are practices that I live by and wanted to share with you:

1. Start every day with 10oz filtered water & 1/2 fresh squeezed lemon / lime.
2. Snooze button doesn’t exist – if you set an intention to wake early to workout, journal, meditate, organize your day etc follow through when the alarm goes off. In my mind the snooze button does not exist.
3. Go to bed around the same time each night (preferably early enough to aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep) – this helps your morning ritual!
4. Close the kitchen after dinner.
5. Keep nutrition simple. Stick to whole foods – if you don’t know what an ingredient is on a label skip it. Eat 3 meals of whole unprocessed foods, only snack if necessary & STOP buying processed junk food you cannot say “no” to!
6. Skip the carbs at dinner MOST of the time. At your evening meal aim for a fistful of protein, 2-3 veggie options and a whole food fat like olive oil or avocado.
7. Give your gut a minimum of a 12 hour “rest”. Lemon water and black coffee are OK.
8. Move daily – sweat most of the time. Some days this is yard work and other’s its a trail run, strength workout or circuit.
9. Intensity is key – on the days you set aside time to sweat be intense. Get your HR to 80-90% of your max for short intervals (30-45 seconds).
10. Drink half of your body weight in ounces of water daily. If you sweat add 10-20 additional ounces.

I read this early this morning and wanted to share:
“This is so contrary to what we learn on the internet about good health. Good health does not come from supplements, a long list of elaborate recipes, chlorophyll shots or the newest gadget, it comes from quality food, sleep, movement and connection”

Instead of making a HUGE change in 2022 I encourage you to set weekly intentions to incorporate little daily habits that encourage a calm, smooth and consistent ride when it comes to your health and fitness.

Happy New Year!!! I am so excited to continue coaching you to help you be the best version of YOURSELF!!! Cheers to a year of adventure and a lifestyle of good health and fitness!
