Simplify and Conquer
I’m a woman who understands that the hardest workouts are 20 minutes long, not two hours. And sometimes, on the most relentless days, they take the form of playing tag with my girls out in the backyard.
Over the last 20 years, I’ve trained hundreds of clients in Los Angeles, New York, and Philadelphia. But I don’t live my life in gyms. My code: It’s all about consistency. Every day, I make a concerted effort to be active and to not just eat but nourish myself. Being dedicated to such a simple goal sharpens my focus and clears the distraction from my life. I no longer ask myself, Shall I workout today? I just know I’m going to. Or, What am I hungry for? Because I know what my body needs.
I’m still guilty of the occasional indulgence, like pizza night with the family most Fridays, but even that’s on my terms. Without the barrage of so-called choices (and excuses), it became a whole lot easier to live a healthy lifestyle, even when my days felt about several hours too short. So my aim with leany greeny GO is to simplify life for as many others as I can.
Stop worrying about keeping up with a new exercise program for a month or even an hour. Find 15 minutes. And before you reluctantly swear off gelato for the 23rd time, consider how fast those cravings would disappear if temptation wasn’t lurking down every aisle at the supermarket.
For the next three weeks, I’ll tell you what to eat and when to eat it. That should free up plenty of willpower. Not to mention the energy you’ll be gaining along the way. After those 21 days, it’ll feel less like you’re missing out and more like you’re finally seeing clearly.
