Having two sons/brothers who are in amazing shape, hit the gym for several hours a day and eat consistently clean diets, Brooke and I should be completely inspired to follow suit. Well, unfortunately we haven’t had a strong relationship with the lifestyle guru that has befriended Ryan and Adam. You know the guy–he goes by the name “Will Power.” For us, Mr. Power is more like our distant cousin that we’ve truly been meaning to contact; however, we’ve lost his cell number, can’t find his address and just haven’t had time to friend him on social media. Yeah, Brooke and I are more of the we’ll get to it tomorrow… Netflix…We really don’t enjoy the gym…Netflix…Too much homework….Netflix…Loads of grading to do…Netflix….
Well, all excuses are over! We’ve not only found our long lost cousin, we’ve invited him to reside with us permanently. Will Power is here to stay! We have both agreed that bad habits are interfering with our overall moods, energy and health. The time has come for significant changes.
It’s time to tone up, get stronger, healthier and feel great! We’re worth it! You’re worth it! We’re ALL WORTH IT!
We’ve come up with ten goals we feel are manageable for our lifestyle. Every six weeks we are going to post on our progress. We are judging progress by stamina, mood, skin appearance, and measuring inches.
Our Ten Health and Fitness Goals:
Thirty minutes of weight training and cardio four times a week
Yoga and meditation each night before bed
6-8 glasses of water a day
Breakfast will be our biggest meal of the day, eating at least 10 grams of protein for breakfast–(ie. greek yogurt, omelettes, oatmeal, smoothies)
Vegetables will be our staple food for each meal
Dessert will consist of fruit (perhaps with a drizzle of dark chocolate syrup)
Say goodbye to sugar and bad carbs (as much as possible)
Not focus on the scale–we are going to measure inches rather than worry about weight
Journal and log every meal and workout
Include one day of total rest and pampering
So we will report back on our progress in six weeks. If anyone would like to join in on our health journey, we’d love you to participate. Or if you have any other suggestions, please let us know.
Finally, if you need to get a hold of Will, feel free to give us a call. We’ll send him right over!

I should probably start doing the same things… eventually
