The Exact Blueprint I Have Been Implementing Along My Fitness Journey.

Today I want to share with you the blueprint I have been following since I have started my health journey.  For about the first 4 years I was doing this technique unconsciously and really just started to realize I was implementing this within the past year or 2.  

This is what has worked for me and I really just wanted to make an in depth blog on how you can have it work best for you as well.

For those of you that are new to the blog, I used to be 25 pounds overweight and eating McDonald's, drinking Coke everyday.  I was pretty average weight wise but was a little chubby and was headed down the road to being fat.

I would go to the dentist and usually have a new cavity.  I wasn't on the best route in terms of my health at this point.

But for whatever reason (I honestly can't remember why) I decided to change my habits.

It started off slow but over time I got to the point I am currently at today (continuing to improve every single day).

What most people do.

Along my path, I have noticed that many of us look for the quick fix or drive to dive in 100% with their diet cold turkey.  This is more of a new years resolution type of mentality and although it may work for a select few, for most of us it doesn't. 

Think of it, if you are currently eating fast food on a daily basis how likely are you to suddenly want to eat some grass fed beef and spinach?  

Although this is a healthy and tasty meal from on paradigm, from another it'll be one of the worst meals you could imagine!

My blueprint for health and fitness

The Blueprint.

What the blueprint I will share today will help you do is to, over time level up your paradigm in terms of health.

The exact blueprint I have been using along my journey is actually extremely simple and easy.  You can basically start from wherever you are and see results!

Like I already stated, when I started my journey I was eating Mcdonald's and drinking Coke nearly every single day, and was able to drop 25 pounds of fat.

When I was starting out along my journey I remember I would eat greek salads with sweet Greek dressing or whole wheat sandwiches with lunch meat. 

Although now I would rarely eat these foods, back then they were great for the place I was coming from.

Slowly improving your diet is what has worked for me and what may work well for you also.

Easing into your diet not only helps you to improve over time, but it makes it easy to start and easy to stick to as well!

The same applies for implementing a more active lifestyle.

Back when I was first starting out along my journey, I was playing video games for about 5 hours per day every single day, and wasn't active whatsoever.

Now as I write this I workout 3 days at the gym, do 2 ab workouts, 4-5 days of stretching/yoga to improve my flexibility, and take walks whenever possible (more often in the summer than winter).

I remember when I was first starting out I would go to the gym and mostly dabble with whatever exercises seemed the most fun.  At thiat point I wasn't really making any progress, but I think I did need that stage in my journey to get to where I am today, although I wouldn't recommend you go join a gym without a plan first.

Closing thoughts.

I hope the blueprint is just as useful (if not more useful) for you than it has been for me so far!  I have found in my life that this is the easiest way to implement and create new healthy habits.

Knowing what you have learned here, what is one area of your life you are going to start to improve on using this blueprint?

Make the best of today,
