So by now hopefully most of you are getting into the groove of eating better and making yourself get more workouts in that you would normally do. Great work! I am inspired to hear from some of the PAX on Slack that they are meeting and/or surpassing their goals ahead of schedule. I hope that these little changes that produce big results become habits.
Just as in the fitness part of F3, modify as needed. This may mean don’t put sugar on your strawberries. Add a splash of sweet tea to your unsweet tea if you have to have it. Get a sweet potato instead of a mashed potato. Try cinnamon instead of brown sugar in your oatmeal.
Keep up the routine of having that protein shake ready as soon as you finish your workout. Try to get enough sleep so you can recover more fully and be the best version of yourself. Don’t compare yourself to another PAX, compare yourself to who you were yesterday.
Dr. Jordan B. Peterson has a new book titled “12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos.” One of those rules is to make friends with people who want the best for you. I have seen that in action this past week. Sargento and Quiche’ are helping me and to that I say, “Dilly Dilly”
Don’t get discouraged if you feel as though you hit a plateau. Keep up the great work. We are over halfway there!
