Weekly Inspiration

Your food choices are important and worth a little bit of time.  Nothing worth having comes easily.  I know you work hard on your fitness.  I know you care about getting results.  That’s why you’re reading this, right?  If being healthy and fit is worth the hours you spend in the gym every week, and it’s worth the money you spend on your gym membership, isn’t it worth the extra 30 minutes it will take to prepare healthy food instead of eating that McDonald’s?  Aren’t your goals more important than the temporary satisfaction that you’d get from drinking that chocolate milkshake?

You always have the power to choose.  Apply your willpower and strong character (I know you have one) to your food just as you would to life’s other important choices.
