“My body is a temple” is not to be used carelessly!

This week’s tip!
You have to make your plan as easy as possible to execute!
So this morning I go to do my workout on Beachbody on Demand and what do I see??? Two new VEGAN Shakeology flavors. And what flavors are they??? That would be vanilla and cafe latte. What are the odds that 2 months into my vegan journey Shakeology comes out with two new vegan options that happen to be exactly MY two favorite flavors?! SO WEIRD! I’m so excited! I feel like I won something haha! Talk about a motivated Monday. Gah.
Every now and then, I feature a guest blogger on here and today is one of those “every now and thens” 🙂
If you have been hanging with The Keen Peach for the long stretch (thank you!!!), then you know of my former gym rat life. Those of you who enjoyed those posts will enjoy Coach Hami’s blog Ask Hami.
Here is a good one from Coach Hami. Enjoy!
There are many ways to get fit, the best way is simply to diet with knowledge. It’s so powerful to have this and it can be learned fast if you go at it. There are hundreds types of diets out there, many of them do work yet few who diet make it all the way to their desired physique and many who achieve it goes back to old habits.
With knowledge on many diets you can choose what diet method suits you and even combine several or switch between them when needed. For example, say you have a planned dinner and you know it will be a high caloric one then intermittent fasting is great on this particular day. Need to eat out often due to job or travel, then hit IIFYM (if it fits your macros).
Knowledge on supplementation can do a lot for you. Supplements like caffeine, creatine, vitamins and minerals all just give a small effect but combined together they do make quite a difference to your workouts.
Knowledge on how to exercise, what burns most calories and how to increase strength and endurance is key in a successful diet. There is such a huge difference between one going to the gym hitting random machines and another going there with a lifting program and focusing on progression. Understanding how to progressively getting stronger and how to avoid and overcome plateaus in fitness is valuable.
If you have knowledge or know many hacks (tricks) about hunger control it simplifies dieting a lot. The same goes with knowledge about how to count calories, which is crucial so you don’t overeat nor undereat.
Having knowledge on developing good habits, manage willpower and become more disciplined will also be beneficial for you.
Where to find it?
To summarize it you should focus on knowledge, with that knowledge it’s not a question of how, rather a question of when you’ll hit your desired physique. At my blog I focus on sharing relevant and scientific knowledge simplified. My content takes just a few days to read through and will give you the foundation to start transforming yourself on all kinds of levels. Whether you aim to achieve an aestethic physique, become more productive or seek motivation you’ll find it at askhami.
I also share my progress as I get stronger, bigger and leaner, while sharing my knowledge, secrets and struggles in everyday life.
Here is a little questionnaire for all of you who want to join the Lean, Mean, and Squeaky Clean Challenge.
