No Energy To Exercise?

April 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 198

What do you do when you're too tired to exercise?

We all know the facts. Working out is good for you. Besides the fact that you might actually like yourself, it lowers your risk for disease. It's not that you don't necessarily want to, you just don't have the energy! Maybe you've purchased that workout program, started a few days, but that is as far as you got. Now you feel like a failure and it makes you hate yourself that much more!

People say, "Well if you would exercise, you'd have more energy." It seems like a cruel cycle because you don't have the energy to exercise in the first place!

I learned I was looking at this all wrong. Allow me to explain. Imagine you're building your dream house...

You have it designed exactly the way you want it to look. It's beautiful. Anyone driving by could see how lucky you are to have this amazing home. Here's the problem. You spent so much time and money making sure that the outside was perfect, that you didn't do anything to take care of the inside. The plumbing is not functional, there is no electricity or water. This home has no value! It's pretty but you can't use it!

I believe we do the same thing to our bodies!

We try these hard workout programs or maybe even just running. We wonder why we can't preform or even have the energy to start. We haven't taken care of the inside of our bodies!!!

If we are not going to learn how to eat, we are wasting our time. Your body needs the proper fuel to run in life, healthy proteins, water, healthy carbs and antioxidants, and we're trying to run it on empty!

Maybe you don't know how to eat. You see no carb, fat free, sugar free, low calorie EVERYWHERE! How is anyone supposed to know what to eat?

So what is right? I have learned first hand how to fuel my body. Start by adding good quality proteins (grass fed beef, free range organic chicken, free range organic eggs) and add them to healthy carbs (sweet potatoes, broccoli, apples). Add lots of water and you'll go from operating in the negative to turbo charged!

My message is this. "Tired" is your bodies' way of telling you - SOMETHING IS WRONG!

I guess the question is, Are you going to listen?
