21 DFX Upper Fix EXTREME Though of the Day – Build a body you’re proud of
When we work out we are often working towards a goal. Losing weight. Gaining muscle or to tone up. Bulking up. Getting stronger. All of that is building the body and lifestyle you want.
Exercise is a large part of “building” that body. You are stretching, strengthening, and even toning those muscles. Sometimes even bulking them up. But you are working on the machine that is your physical temple and body.
Perhaps an even larger part of building that body is the food you eat. No matter how hard you work, you can sabotage yourself in the kitchen each and every day. You have to build the menus to sustain the new, healthier, fit lifestyle you are building.
Clean, healthy and lean eating becomes vital. Cutting out the candy bars, donuts, cookies, cake, fast food, etc. becomes an integral part of finding the body and life you are working towards. You can’t live on that stuff every single day and expect the work you do in the gym, on the track, or on the bike to fix the way you eat.
Fitness and health is about balance. Life is about finding balance. To succeed, to truly succeed, we must find the balance between what we eat, how we work our bodies, what we feed our minds and souls with, and how we relax and rejuvenate ourselves. Find that balance between mind, body, heart and soul and you’ll have built the strongest most balanced and healthiest/happiest whole self you can!
