My Greatest Fitness Struggle: Nutrition

I was starting to get on the ball with nutrition thanks to the Beachbody Ultimate Reset, which I did in late October/early November 2012. My weight was down to 199 (the first time I have been under 200 in ages), and I had developed healthy habits that I could easily continue.

Then I got into the trucking line of work. First of all, my pay during the training period was too low for me to buy a lot of groceries. Second, the food for the Ultimate Reset was on the pricey side. I didn’t have the time or guidance to figure out what to do. This meant I had to rely on whatever food was provided for free during our orientation…which, believe me, was NOT healthy.

I quit my first trucking job and had to move on to another company. Once again, I am faced with a training period where I earn less money. However, this time around I ‘m not determined to be in the same boat. So what did I do? Talked about it online with other Beachbody Coaches and team members.

There are two dilemmas I face in the upcoming weeks. (1) As I said above, I will be earning very little money during orientation. (2) I will be in a truck with a mentor. Therefore, refrigerator space will be limited. If I want to eat healthy, then I have to buy non-perishable food because I can’t come on to this guy’s truck and take over.

So this is the plan I came up with: I went through the food list for the Ultimate Reset and the nutrition guides for all the Beachbody programs that I have. This helped me come up with a list of healthy food that needs no refrigeration.

Combine that with the knowledge I got from Ultimate Reset on what to eat and when, and I think I may have finally found the answer to my problem.

Now it’s just a matter of putting it into action!
