Have you heard of Carl’s Crew? I am happy to get coaching from from Carl Savard, Subway Canada’s Commit to Fit brand ambassador and over the next four weeks, Carl has committed to working together to helping us reach our health goals. I would like you to take the challenges with me!
Each Monday, we receive a challenge for the week – something that will help us to adopt a healthier lifestyle. This week, Carl’s Crew is asking us to list something that has been procrastinating on for a long time. This was a simple choice for me, but something that I find challenging to accomplish. When the combination of work, family and social life make it hard to find extra time in the day, it’s easy for health and wellness to fall to the wayside. Here are my three goals for the next month:
1. Meal prep ahead of time to avoid dining out
2. Make sure I go and take a walk during lunch time
3. Drink water every day
These are simple goals – but when life gets hectic, we often look for the easiest solution to solve our hunger pains. This often means consuming fast foods high on sodium, saturated fats and carbohydrates. These foods can make us feel better in the short-term, but their long-term consequences can be severe. Subway suggests that we go ahead, load up on vegetables and protein, try a new sandwich and embrace an active lifestyle because. Staying on track with Subway Canada and Carl Savard will provide the encouragement to help me achieve my goal!
