The Ritual of Exercise
Studies continually show productivity gains in the workplace outweigh the time spent exercising, we function better in all aspects of life when we are fit. When life gets so busy, you cannot afford NOT to exercise, so rely on structure more than motivation. You HAVE to get up and go to work every day, your new thought should be “You HAVE to exercise to be able to function at a high level at work every day.” On days when you just don’t seem to have the energy to workout rely on the ritual of regular exercise, just like the other rituals you have set up in your life, and it will take over. Are the rituals you have set up in your life leading to a longer life or a shorter, illness ridden life, it’s your choice. Just show up and begin to create the ritual of exercise, the payoff will astound you, just look around at the people who do exercise, and the people who don’t, it will be obvious.

Beachbody Nutrition Tip: Toss the Junk
Now would be a good time to get rid of all the junk food currently in your possession. Foods high in saturated and trans fats, sodium, and sugar should be the first things you throw out (e.g., cookies, pastries, candy, processed meats, potato chips, soda, high-sodium frozen foods, canned soups, etc.). You know them. You think you love them. They’re the problem. Throw them away, and don’t let anyone give you more. Don’t be nice. Don’t take a bite. Say, “Thanks, but I’m not eating that kind of stuff for 90 days.” And by the way, congratulations! You’re taking this program seriously, and just remember—if you think it’s junk food, it probably is. Yes throw it away, or give it to charity food bank if you can.
