Where are you when opportunity knocks?
This week is the Beachbody Summit in New Orleans! My friend Chalene Johnson asked me to be a part of two different live PiYo workouts at Beachbody Summit, and I’m thrilled!
I’ve been asked to be on stage at Summit before and in the past I would have said yes, stressed out, dieted, cut carbs, manipulated my body to be whatever I felt the pressure to be in front of people… And this time I said yes, good, I’m ready. I’m not deprived. I just feel good. I’m in a season of my life (almost 40!) and I feel like I’ve reached a level of balance after learning how to eat right and get into a regime and still live happily.
I’ve tried every diet, every passing fad, and while I think it’s really important learn how to eat well, I know for me I became a slave to my numbers and my diet. Stressing out over what you eat creates cortisol and cortisol creates belly fat! So over the years I have tweaked my diet and my lifestyle to create a balance that gives me an edge over other people – I’m always ready. I’m always ready to get on stage, be in a photo shoot, shoot a video…I know I’m prepared because I’m consistent with my workouts, my nutrition is working for me, and I’m ready when opportunity knocks.
Are you ready? Or do you feel like you have to get ready?
