What would happen if you only got ONE CAR in your life?

Yes--I am a nutrition, fitness, and weight loss coach.  You're probably wondering WHY I am writing about cars.  

I promise this blog post is extremely important, so please read the entire thing!

I'm starting this with an analogy by Warren Buffet.  

Imagine that you turned 16 years old, and that you got to pick ANY brand new car that you wanted.  It could be a BMW, a Lexus, a Mercedes... ANYTHING you want!

Here's the catch though: You only get that ONE car to last your entire life.  If something happens to that one car, you can't get another one.  

  • How would you treat your car on a daily basis? 

  • What would you do to take care of your car?

I'm guessing that you would do ANYTHING and EVERYTHING in your power to take care of that car.  Because you KNOW it's the only car you'll ever have, chances are you'll take AMAZING care of it.

In reality, if something ever happens to your car, thankfully you are able to get a new one.

Remember that we all have only ONE body and mind.  

And how you treat it on a daily basis matters.  Treat your body and your mind like they are your most prized possessions--because they are.  And just to be clear, I'm not talking about buying yourself luxury items... I'm talking about making your health a priority.  

Work on creating healthy nutrition habits.  Find time throughout your day to exercise.  The actions you take on a daily basis matter.  

Sure, enjoying one alcoholic drink a week probably won't negatively affect your health... But enjoying one or more alcoholic drinks a day probably will affect your health.  

Remember that treating your body well involves more than just watching the foods you eat.  It also includes watching the foods you DON'T eat.  For example, if you're following a strict diet and you never eat carbs, you're probably missing out on important nutrients that can help prevent against Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular problems.  

If you're ready to take the next step in changing your life by learning how to take care of your "car," I encourage you to check out how I work with my clients.

Every single day, YOU are the one who is in the driver's seat of your car.  You have the power to decide how you want to live your life and how you want to treat your body.  

And how you treat your body on a daily basis matters.
