I once was told that I could plan out a training program for not just one week or two; not just one month or two....but plan it for an ENTIRE year. My first thought turned to food and how I don't plan out an entire year's worth of meals. That would just be ridiculous for many reasons.
So many things happen in our life that can alter our training and eating patterns.
Some days I feel like meat and vegies; other days I feel like a nuts, seeds and herbs. Some days I feel like building strength, other days I like to hit cardio; and other, other days I like to do both.
With our busy lives our plans can regularly go out the window. It's important then to stick to a few basic guidelines/steps/thoughts that are simple to follow and can get us through the challenging times in our lives. For e.g. a long walk is a basic yet excellent forward step when it comes to maintaining health and fitness. During difficult periods in our life, a nice long walk will move our body, and help clear our mind.
What simple things do you do to maintain your health and fitness during the challenging phases in your life?
