I wanted to share with you the Top 5 things that you should NEVER do at the start of your day IF you want to become the best version of yourself.
The list is as follows:
1) Never Have 300 kcals of sugar in your coffee or morning drink.
Stay away from the high calorie, high sugar coffee drinks.
Opt instead for tea or if you are like me and MUST have your coffee fix, go for a healthy alternative for sugar like honey, maple syrup, or date sugar.
They are just a sweet, but so more more healthy, and you don't need to use as much which means less overall calories.
2) Never Eat white starchy carbs for breakfast. No bagels, no donuts, no bread, no cereal.
Carbs are sugar.
By starting your day with a high sugar, high calorie drink & white starches like bagels & donuts, you are setting yourself up for failure.
Your blood will get a high sugar spike which is great initially, but it will lead to a mid morning and/or mid day energy crash which ultimately leads to more coffee & more sugar.
It's a vicious cycle!
3) Never plan your meals for the day
If you hadn't planned what & where you are going to eat the night before then you are starting behind the game.
Success when it comes to nutrition starts with successful meal planning & preparation.
Plan meals on Friday or Saturday.
Use Sunday to prepare, cook, & store as much of the food that you'll eat during the week.
You'll save time. Be less stress. See faster results.
4) Never Plan your workout.
Just like nutrition, successful fitness programs are planned at least a week in advance.
Great workout programs take into account your goal.
Your goal should be established on paper.
You'll need to know your current weight, current body fat, & current lean body mass.
Your program should specify how much weight you want to lose or what dress size do you want to be at, and by what date?
Your program should specify what type of training you will need to do to hit your goals?
How many reps, sets, how much weight?
Order of exercises?
ALL these questions need to be answered IF you what to have an efficient exercise programs that delivers massive results in the shortest possible time.
If your planning your workout the day of you are more likely to pick random exercises that really don't have a whole lot to do with your goal.
You are less likely to succeed!
5) Never Plan To Workout Alone
Research indicates that working out with a partner or in a small group can increase the intensity of a workout by up to 25%.
This increase in intensity leads to higher calorie burn which ultimate leads to better results over a shorter period of time.
Also, scheduling workouts with a partner, small group, or trainer increasing your accountability & decreasing the likelihood that you will FLAKE!
So there you have it.
My Top 5 things that I think you should never do IF you want to see MASSIVE results in your body and become the best possible version of yourself.
Have an active day!
