Week 8: chug a lug baby!

The latest from my #infinitecoaching nutritional program with Jessica at Infinite Fitness:

Water!!

Human beings are made of at least 60% water. So it kind of makes sense that we need water to survive.

Our brains are 80% water and at a mere 1% dehydration level, our mental performance and physical condition starts to become impaired. This is even before thirst kicks in. People don’t usually start to feel thirsty until they have already lost up to 3 % of their body’s water.

The problem here is that water is just so…. BORING!

We all know we should be drinking the recommended 8-12 cups a day, but how many of us ACTUALLY do that?

I know I don’t.

Week 6: the status quo revolution

More lessons learned on my path to being Lean for Life with @Infinitefit. 

The status quo. The existing condition or state of affairs.

In layman’s terms, the status quo in everything is what we like to call our “comfort zone”. It’s the place of good enough, not rocking the boat, keeping the peace, and the happy medium.

And a lot of people are very happy with the status quo.

I spent last weekend in a room full of do-gooders from my city looking for ways to challenge the status quo, to move people out of their comfort zones that privilege or race or gender has granted them. And this was one of the biggest challenges we all faced in our projects, our endeavors and our desires to do-good for our communities.

The status quo.

These feelings of “everything is just fine; this is just the way things are; you just have to accept the world we live in” are hard to eschew. They make up all the stories we tell ourselves to make us feel good about our lives. That we are not bad people, we aren’t hurting anyone, we pay our taxes, we eat relatively well, we “exercise” enough. In essence, we keep telling ourselves that we are A-OK.

But are we?

Week 4: The "binge" repercussions.

The lastest update from my #LeanforLife and #InfiniteCoaching program with Jessica at Infinite Fitness:

This is the reality check post.

There are a lot of inspirational stories of people's fitness and diet transformations. You hear about the success stories all the time. Heck, you see them at the gym or in your own life. The people who drop 12 or 20 pounds and who really seem to be doing all the right things. And then you get on the scale for your weekly weigh-in and....

The number is going up.

This is what happened to me last week and I am not going to lie. It got me down.

REALLY, really down...
