You don’t know who’s watching

Updated: August 2nd 2020

Working out is apart of my daily routine. I’ll go train clients at my boot camp (click here for info on that) and pre-covid I’d slide into the office at least Tuesday and Thursdays  and work at my other job at Fox Sports Southwest. I’d always get up and workout in my garage those days. My life was set up where my workout is a part of the day. It’s built in. It does help I have equipment in my garage but honestly you don’t need much to get a good workout! Through two pregnancies my schedule and workouts didn’t change much. Of course the intensity changed but I was consistent.

One minute of exercise is more than zero.

I want my kids to see how much I value my health, physical fitness and mental fitness. They will grow up seeing my work ethic and my lifestyle.  I want to live as long as I can to see them have kids and their kids have kids! So I take care of myself, eat well, sleep enough and have fun.

Here is a simple workout format you can use and incorporate ANY body weight exercise in.

Exercise 1 & 2 10 reps of both then-8 reps of both-6-4-2 (run, jump rope, high knees)2-4-6-8-10

Example exercises:

Squats & Pushups – run .25 miles

Lunges & Tricep Dips – 100 jump ropes

Superman pulls & Straight leg situps – 100 High knee

If you have dumbbells you can add different moves and modify as you wish! It doesn’t have to be complicated!

Invest in your health

Many of us wake up and think “today I’ll be healthy,  no junk food,  I’ll get a salad for lunch,  and I’ll get a workout in.” But as you go about your day,  things change up a little.  It’s a co workers birthday and lots of (delicious) cake flowing around the office. Or you get slammed and have to order pizza because you don’t have time to get lunch.  Then you decide to just pick up Chinese food on the way home because you don’t feel like cooking and the gym?  Ha no way, not today!

Once you realize that everything you put into your body will effect not only the way you look but the way you feel, you will be more careful or your food choices. “It’s too hard to plan ahead and really expensive to eat healthy.” Not really – when you think of how much you spend on fast food each week and not to mention the money you’ll be spending on medical bills as you get older.

There is no price for a healthy life and you are in complete control of it! Not to say you have to make every meal and go to the gym every day – just be aware of what you are ingesting and how much you’re exercising. Take pride in yourself and fuel your body with the right stuff!
