Busy Life? Me Too…

Your life is too busy to cook and or eat healthy? Well, I guess you can say my life is probably too busy too, yet I manage to still eat nothing but whole foods with zero sugar or processed meals, and I faithfully dedicate time for exercise. And guess what, besides being a wellness and fitness author, I am also a full time trucker who delivers construction and industrial supplies through out the state of Kansas. My route is 950 miles with 8 stops and I will deliver between 35,000 to 40, 000 pounds of freight every trip out. I will leave out on the road tonight about midnight and return sometime around 7pm tomorrow evening. Then I will be back out Wednesday night, return Thursday when I will get reloaded to head back out until Friday evening and then I will be right back out on the road Saturday.

Tonight is not a normal run because of the end of the month, so next week it will be the normal Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday runs. Even with this busy schedule I still make time for the gym to lift weights 3 days per week, and I will go out for good brisk walks 2 to 3 days per week. Sometimes, I will walk laps around our terminal grounds while I am waiting on my semi to be reloaded. Also, to add to my busy schedule, I have to study up in order to test and renew my HazMat endorsement when I renew my Class A CDL in a couple weeks. No matter what is going on in my life, I get my exercise in. I treat this as a responsibility with the same importance as my job. No excuses, ever.

This seems almost like it does not need said, but I know there are many who struggle with pre-planning their lives. When we do not plan ahead and prepare for a busy life it only creates unneeded chaos. I hate chaos and refuse to live my life in a chaotic manner. For the rest of the week, I will be somewhat short on time so I have pre-cooked chicken breasts for meals for the week. I understand everyone gets overwhelmed with being busy at times, but let me leave you with this thought;

If you have the time to cook a piece of meat, and you will have to clean up behind yourself of course. Does it not stand to good reason to go ahead and cook ahead for a few days in order to reduce clean up time and time spent cooking later in the week? I have chicken breast cooked now to eat on until the weekend, and I only had to clean one pan and the rest of the week will only involve reheating as needed.

God bless all, and thanks for reading.

    You have inspired me in this area more than you know. Until I started David’s Way I never knew what I was going to eat. This is so helpful.
