Energy – it’s what powers you, me & the universe.
It’s never ending & yet a lot of us struggle to scrape enough of it together to get out of bed in a morning without feeling lousy all day & needing to reach for a coffee or a sugary energy drink.
Lets get back to basics here – carbs are out main source of energy.
The more we eat, the more energy we have.
Sugar however is a toxic substance that rots your body & gives you a whole heap of nasty problems that you really don’t need to be dealing with while trying to build a strong body or gain athletic performance
So, just to be clear carbs = energy
However what type of carbohydrates you’re eating will have an impact on your energy levels
Trust me, sugary cereals, white bread & pasta will not cut it!
If you’re serious about working out hard to get real results then your nutrition has to be on point too!
You should be eating lots of fruit, vegetables, beans & rice – that stuff will keep you full & give you the energy you need to fight through your workout
You also need to consider how hydrated you are
No water in the system that is made up of 70% water? You’re asking for a really awful time there!
Then there’s the amount of sleep you’re getting…
4-5 hours a night?
Say hello to lack of concentration & feeling lousy
What are you focused on throughout the day?
If you’re quite a relaxed, enthusiastic, motivated person then you will probably be focused on the positives of life & thus miraculously have ore energy throughout the day
If you’re a grumpy, mardy, angry type person then a lot of your energy that you have for the day will be taken up your your stresses of the day 7 your negative thoughts circulating your head
Lastly I want to cover exercise…
Try exercising first thing in the morning if you can.
You see when you exercise in the morning not only does it turn on your metabolism on, you also have hormones released into your body which actually make you feel better.
Think of it like your natural way of becoming fitter, healthier & happier… & it can even be free if you want – just go for a brisk walk or a jog 😀
Or… you could jump off a crane … that $h1T will wake you up!
(Yes it’s me) 😀
Yes, it was as insane as it looks & if you haven’t tried it, please do!
So go & make yourself into the nuclear power plant that I know you can be!
A few changes here & there done for a month, will end up giving you a huge change as you form it into a habit
