I ordered McDonald’s last night. Why?
Because I wanted to.
One Big Mac. One Spicy McChicken. One Large Fry. Delicious.
For the whole month of September, I consumed zero:
- processed food
Doing 30-day challenges like this always enlightens me about portion control and cravings. I ate McDonald’s and didn’t feel ashamed because 80 to 90 percent of my diet is nutritious.
I eat primarily home-cooked meals, farm-raised meats, and organic produce. Fancy boy, right?
But the truth is I’m not well-versed at all when it comes to nutrition. The same goes for fitness.
I go to the gym three times per week, do jiujitsu two or three nights a week, and see a personal trainer twice a month. To someone who doesn’t exercise, that may seem like a lot. But I’m not doing intricate or complicated workouts. It’s all simple yet consistent.
And that’s the key word here: consistency. You are what you do consistently.
One fast food meal won’t make you overweight or out of shape. Consistently eating junk and never exercising will.
Just like one great workout won’t make you an athlete. Consistently making yourself sweat and eating mostly well will.
So, what are you doing (or not doing) consistently? What results are you getting?
