Two Whole Years of Working Out With The Greatest Trainer in the World: Berhane!!!

Today marks two years that I have been working out with The Greatest Trainer in the World, Berhane!

Yep, it's been two of the best years of my life, and I am planning to workout with him for the next 90 plus years.....

For this anniversary blog, I pondered what should I tell my readers that I did not tell you guys in my one year anniversary blog.

First, if you do anything over and over again, it will become a habit.

Every Saturday I get up early and do some type of exercise, and that's just what I do. Every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, I workout with Berhane at 4PM, and that's just what I do. I prepare most of my meals at home, and that's just what I do. I make no excuses EVER!!!!!

During challenging workouts and eating things that are good for my body is what I do all the time; it's a habit!

I read a friend's post on Facebook, and she stated something about a "cheat day," a day where she eats whatever she wants. I chuckled to myself when I first read this, because I use to look forward to "cheat day" or "cheat meal," but I eventually realized that I was only cheating myself.

Why would anyone do something for a whole day that is not good for his/her body? I look forward to fresh fruit and vegetables, and I eat them over and over at home and at some of the best restaurants, and it has become a habit. There is nothing like kale, brussel sprouts, beans, peas. Cheating for me is putting extra peanut butter on my apple slices. (Yummy!) I consistently eat things that are good for my body, it has become a habit, and I am loving the results.

Second, I do not believe in diets AT ALL unless you are going to stay on that diet for the rest of your life. Why not eat things that are good for our bodies most of the time, and reap the benefits: good cholesterol, great blood pressure, no diabetes, lean and strong bodies etc? 

My diet is eating as much as I want of the things that God put on this earth for us, not foods that are processed by man.

Last, but not least, I want to encourage my readers to find a health partner, and you guys consistently encourage each other to not have a "cheat day" and to workout consistently and to your highest potential.

Berhane: The Greatest Trainer in the World!

Berhane is my health partner, and I never take for granted the privilege of working out with him. He use to care more about my health than I do (Now, I care just as much!), he never lets me use excuses to not workout or eat right, and he is always helping me to assess my diet in order to achieve new goals that we are always setting. I may be able to do this health journey by myself, but I do not want to. (People need other people, or at least I do for sure.)

What I know for sure is that you can start your health journey right now. Your age, weight, where you live, your children, your spouse, lack of time, all of that is NO EXCUSE!!!

If you want to be extremely happy, work on your health..........

Good Health is Priceless.

I love being a lean, strong, burning machine!

By the way, every exercise in this post was done in one session with The Greatest Trainer in the World, and sometimes...

Two of the Best Years of My Life, because I am getting younger, and younger, and younger..........
