Happy Valentine’s Day! Meh. I’m kidding. This “holiday” is just really cheesy. I don’t get it.
It’s like… “Oh yeah. It’s Valentine’s Day. I love you. Here’s some mysterious plastic filled with hot air and some flowers you’ll never water.”
Then you go to a really crowded restaurant. The waiter has a snarled look on his face because he was told, “Hey, you’re single and sad. I need you to bring food to happy couples all night and feel sorry for yourself.” So you get poor service.
So yeah. That’s my V-Day Rant.
Here’s another rant… if you’re overwhelmed with the idea of transforming your diet, try this simple Six Week Diet Template and don’t quit. I hate it when people quit. It makes me rant. This template will give you some momentum as you implement some very powerful habits…
Best option: “Roll” each habit into the new week. For example, you’ll drink 80 ounces of water a day in week 2, while eliminating processed sugar.
Good option: Simply follow the habit of the week as shown.
Aim for 80 ounces of water per day
Eliminate ALL processed sugar (c’mon – you know what this is. Cake. Pastries. Pop-Tarts. Etc.) with the exception of ONE planned treat. If you want something sweet (and it’s not your planned reward time), go for some fruit. Any fruit. No it doesn’t matter.
Aim to keep your starches (bread, rice, pasta) around your workouts and only ONE reward meal.
Give up alcohol for just ONE week. If you already don’t drink, you crushed week 4 already. You’re a Jedi.
Try a TWO NEW vegetables this week.
Focus on protein. Aim to have one serving of protein with every meal/snack you eat (15 – 35 grams).
Anything, and I mean ANYTHING can be done, one habit at a time.
