This email is coming to you from our van (while eating Banza), but today we are in a Manson WA driveway, and spending our time working out in the sun.
Here’s what I found fun, interesting, or noteworthy this week.
My latest podcast –
AAJ 251: Habits & Addictions with Josh Todd
We had a really interesting talk about how habits and addictions are separated by our society, but are pretty much the same thing.
If you can see how you have habits that are benefitting or hurting you… this podcast could definitely accelerate your life progress!
My top post on social –
Coach Glassman (founder of CrossFit) says that sometimes you have to go long, and this was the longest workout that I’ve done in years (60 mins)! What was the last workout that you did that was much longer than usual? – Instagram
The image is of us doing the workout Murph on Memorial Day, and doing pull-ups from the 4×4’s on the side porch because we don’t have a pull-up bar here. #makeitwork
What we’ve been eating a loving –
Banza chickpea pasta and rice
If you like pasta or rice but don’t like the big blood sugar spike… this could be a great solution for you. We’ve been eating this a few times a week, and love how it tastes, and how we don’t feel like we need a nap after eating it.
Nutrition tracking for the win –
If you aren’t feeling up to snuff… it could be that you’re eating too much protein, fat, carbs, calories, or just the wrong foods for you. And it’s SO FREAKING COOL that we can easily use an app like MyFitnessPal to quickly see what might be off.
I keep coming back to nutrition tracking as one of the most beneficial things we can do for optimizing how we look, feel, think, and so much more. This seems to be because I keep having to remind people to do it, and then they have outstanding breakthroughs once they stick to it.
Here’s my biggest tip for making nutrition tracking quick and easy…
Log all of the foods that you’ve eaten and are going to eat right before your last meal. I track what I eat 6 days a week, and have been using this method for years. What this will do is tell you exactly how much you need to eat in your last meal (and you’ll learn about what you should eat prior to your last meal tomorrow).
When you aren’t feeling good for a number of days or weeks, you can take a look at patterns of foods that you’ve eaten. Then you can try substituting other foods to see if what you’re eating is slowing you down.
If you’re feeling clueless about this… you’re not alone. Just shoot me an email and I’ll send you a link for the podcast training I did on how to setup your diet for success.
It’s unfortunate that our education system doesn’t see how understanding what you’re eating can make all the difference in how you feel, perform, look, and your health, but here we are.
That’s what I have for you this week. If you need anything at all, just hit me up via email, and I’ll help in anyway that I can.
