Just Show Up

People often debate what is most important for health or weight loss: exercising harder or eating better. 

There are those who will come work out and really push the intensity for a week but then do nothing for a month or more. There are those who do crash diets, cut calories and lose weight, but then it all comes back again. 

The most important thing in my opinion is consistency

It’s so important to find a routine and get into it. Exercise 3-5 days a week. Every single week. It doesn’t have to be a PR every week or every month; it doesn’t have to be insanely intense. You don’t have to “win” the workout; you don’t have to be the fastest or the strongest. Just show up and move. 

Eat clean 80-90% of the time. Don’t worry about the other 10-20% and don’t stress about it. Prioritize protein and produce.

This week I did an InBody scan for the first time in 4 years. We offer an InBody scan to all of our members every 3 months. It shows weight, body fat percentage and muscle mass. It’s a great way to track progress. In 4 years, all of my numbers moved the way I wanted them to. I didn’t do anything crazy. I eat clean and I exercise. Every week. All year.
