Leading a healthy lifestyle can be intimating, trust me. How long should you workout for? How many glasses of water should you drink in a day? HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU EAT SUPERFOODS? Yah, I’m sure these are just a few of the questions racing through your brain. Andddd, if that’s the case – then I’m glad you’re here!
Here at Way of Gray HQ, it’s our mission to help you succeed with this energizing and empowering healthy lifestyle. We want you to be your happiest and healthiest self and so we’ll be here providing both inspiring content and powerful services that will help you get there the easy way! Even if you feel completely overwhelmed when you first visit our website, you’ll soon understand exactly how to break down those initial first steps into manageable bite-sized pieces so you can get started on the right foot!
First things first, let’s clear up some common misconceptions:
for the right
First and foremost – we want you to adopt this lifestyle for the right reason.
When I started my personal journey, I wanted nothing more than to be a Victoria’s Secret model. I thought if I worked out hard and limited what I ate, I would be happy. Oh boy was I wrong. I started this lifestyle for all of the wrong reasons.
Does this process sound familiar?
“Okay… I’m going to workout really hard because I want to lose ten pounds…
“Awesome…two weeks straight…feeling motivated. Yup, I’m going to look like Blake Lively.
“Yup, let’s workout and eat 500 calories…
“Yup, okay, I can miss a workout today– I have tomorrow to work towards that Blake bod…
“Yah… it’s been three weeks, but that’s okay because I’m not worried about my appearance right now. I’m just going to neglect my diet and exercise routine because those ten pounds can wait and McDonalds is delicious…
“Oh shit, it’s been six weeks since I’ve worked out, and I’ve gained another 10 pounds and now I hate myself even more…
“Okay, time to start working towards that Blake bod again.”
And so the cycle continues…
Just goes to show how easy it is to veer off-track when your focus is solely physical.
Now imagine if instead, your main goal was to be your happiest and healthiest self – would it be as easy to talk yourself out of living a healthy lifestyle? I don’t think so.
We want you to adopt this lifestyle because you love your body and want the absolute best for it. Of course you will lose weight and tone up – but that shouldn’t be your only motivating factor.
Okay, now that you’re doing for this the right reasons – let’s talk about nutrition and exercise.
of your body
Let’s take a moment to appreciate how wonderful and delicious food is…Mmmmmm.
Not feeling the love? Don’t worry, I’ve been there, too. I know what it’s like to see food as the enemy. Or to think that getting results is about deprivation and endless salads. Well girlfriend, that’s most definitely not the case.
Food is not the enemy. (Although deprivation and calorie counting certainly are. They can ruin your metabolism and blood sugar. Yikes!)
Food IS amazing, exciting and delicious. And by the way, I’m talking about healthy food!
We love food here at Way of Gray, and we eat copious amounts of the stuff each and every day. It keeps our energy levels high, smiles on our faces and that inner glow at full strength.
