Are You Fooling Yourself?

I read a great quote by Richard Feynman this morning which really rang true.

"The first principle is that you must not fool yourself and you are the easiest person to fool."

- Richard Feynman 

So how does this apply to you when it comes to fitness and healthy eating?

There are a few important areas that must be mastered if you want to lose weight (and keep it off) while also maintaining a vibrant and lean body.

Eating - you must eat well 85-95% of the time to lose fat.  If you splurge on the weekends and you splurge during the week, your body will not be fooled...only you will.  It will respond by holding on to or adding more fat.

Training - Are you getting exercise every day of the week?  Do you skip workouts?  Do you skip those after dinner walks that you know are good for you?  How about physical activities with your family on the weekends?

Rest & Recovery - Are you getting sufficient sleep? (Can you show me your sleep log?)  Or are you up answering emails, and looking at Facebook?

Don't fool yourself.  There will come a time when your body has had enough of being neglected...and it will let you know.  Don't let it be too late.

Get back on track right this minute.  Life is short.  

Today's workout.
