All in moderation....

Who is this "moderation," everyone keeps talking about? After my 30 day no-cheat challenge I lost a bit of inhibition. I ordered pizza (twice), I ate ice cream and raspberry cake (albeit, it was my husband's birthday, my birthday is on the 22nd and our anniversary is coming up), I ate chicken wings with ranch and drank alcohol, but I'm telling you, I didn't gain a single pound or gain an inch. I was surprised when three days of cheating led me back to a six pack and a squat of almost 200lbs.. I eat carbs, I eat sweets, I drink alcohol, I have crappy days, I am human; but that doesn't mean that I don't get right back on the horse when I choose to get off of it. I make the time to workout, I make the time to prep my meals, I make the time to plan my workouts, I make the time to be a personal trainer. If you do not make the time to do any of these things, you don't want it bad enough, plain and simple. You need to identify your roadblocks and squash them, or you will not succeed. So what's stopping you? ;)

Celery makes chicken wings healthy, right?

One thing that I get onto my clients about more than anything is their water consumption. This is CRUCIAL! Water is the basis of all THINGS! It's what we are MADE OF, and if you're not drinking enough of it, you're not functioning at your best. According to NASM, a sedentary male should have three liters of water a day, this means for active people, the amount is much, much more. I drink a gallon a day. I carry a jug with me and I guzzle. I don't mind the taste of water, but some do....Add some mio or other water enhancer, it'll do you good.

Body builders and those that are trying to gain lean muscle have a higher protein in take. If they're not consuming enough water (or fibrous veggies), it'll stop them up and make them feel groggy and gross. Water keeps everything moving and helps you feel awake, so glug, glug, glug. 

Can't believe I just dedicated a whole post about water. DRINK UP.
