One of my gym bros has been telling me that I look thick. Best. Compliment. Ever. 🤓 •
Being skinny or lean does NOT mean you are healthy. Everyone is chasing after a certain number on the scale but are you doing it in a healthy way? A way that will ensure long term health, long term gains, and long term happiness?
If your current workout and/or nutrition plan has you stressed out or has you doing a crazy amount of cardio or eating super low calories, than it’s safe to say that it’s not healthy and the benefits will be short lived. Health and fitness should be a lifestyle. It should be something that is sustainable over years and years. •
I use a picture from my show here to show that yes I was skinny but I didn’t feel healthy. I was stressed out (all from my own doing), tired, and running on low steam. Compare that to now, where I’m in control of my body and nutrition, able to sleep better (you sleep like crap when you’re at a low body fat), and able to manage my stress better because my body and brain are operating on prime fuel. •
To me, where I’m at now, is healthy. Eating 90% whole clean foods and allowing myself some junk when I want, lifting heavy as heck and looking forward to my training, being able to spend time with friends and family and not have to worry about food or getting a workout in; that is health! Your mental health plays a big part in your physical health so both need to be on point!
