DON’T GO IT ALONE

I re­dis­cov­ered this proverb from Seneca re­cently: “He who would do great things should not at­tempt them all alone.” I think we can ap­ply that to so many things in life but par­tic­u­larly to our health.

STEP 1:

Tell some­one your goal. It helps you ex­plore ideas and it will res­onate with the other per­son, too. Hear­ing your­self say the words will put it out there that you re­ally want this.

STEP 2:

Find a buddy who has sim­i­lar goals or hire a per­sonal trainer (PT). If the cost of work­ing with a PT is out­side your bud­get, try Googling train­ing ex­er­cises in­stead.

STEP 3:

Look for healthy food in­spi­ra­tion on TV, mag­a­zines, on­line and even when eat­ing out. Then, start your own healthy recipe book.

Fill it with meals you love or would like to try.

MISH’S PER­SONAL LES­SON: STAY HUN­GRY FOR NEW IDEAS

I’m al­ways on the hunt for new ideas around train­ing and food. I re­cently took my­self to a new ve­gan cafe and was amazed by ev­ery­thing – the food, the con­cepts be­hind the meals and how those ideas ended up on my plate. I was so in­spired that I’ve brought some of those ideas into my own kitchen.
