Happy Independence Day!
Today, we aren’t going to hit you with fitness and nutrition tips because I just want you to focus on enjoying yourself.
This is, without a doubt, one of my favorite holidays. When I was 10 years old, I knew I belonged in America. I still remember how I felt when I saw that old film reel in class with the Golden Gate Bridge, skyscrapers, big highways, cars with fins, and Muscle Beach. It was pure magic. I owe all of my success to this country, so I love celebrating it.
Today, I’ll be going on a bike ride and then BBQing and eating red, white, and blue desserts. I’m not going to think about whether what I’m eating will move me closer to my goals. I’m just going to have fun.
I want you to do the same. Days like today are why we eat well and exercise and have routines the rest of the time.
So even if you’re not in the United States, have a burger, eat some dessert, and remind yourself that if we don’t let ourselves have fun every once in a while, what is the point?
