Here's a blog post from Coach Ryan. 

The Ease of Health

Balance

; A condition in which different elements are equal or in the correct proportions.

I find myself sitting and talking with friends, coworkers, and other athletes a lot about the ease of being healthy and “in shape”. Unfortunately for some, the concept of living a healthy lifestyle does not come as easy to some as it does to others. With this blurp of a rant, I want to tackle the concepts I find most important when it comes to living a healthy and balanced life.

The reason I have been infatuated with this word is because it encapsulates my entire outlook on this topic with just one word. Of course, at 23 years old (almost 24 for all you haters out there), I like to have my fair share of beverages and burgers. This also comes with a short supply of sleep every once in a while, as well as a lingering headache the next day. But, who doesn’t like to have a night out with friends? A couple glasses of wine with a loved one? A scoop of ice cream (or four) with the family and kids? Who is to say you can’tenjoy these fun times while also maintaining and balancing a healthy lifestyle? I find a lot of the time that people just starting out on their journey of health and fitness will take on too much at one time. They go strict paleo, zero sugar, no carbs, no alcohol, cardio every day, or whatever “craze” is the next hot thing to dive into. Then, no more than two weeks down the road, they find that these irrational changes are too hard to maintain, and before you know it, fall back into the same routine they were in before. Eat whole foods people! It’s not that difficult. Seriously. A quality diet focused on good proteins, high amounts of vegtatables and fruit, quality carbohydrates eaten in moderation, and little sugar will be way more beneficial and easily sustainable than being atkins/carb-free/fun-less/”if it fits your macros/whole-# for the rest of your life. Do something active at least 3 times per week (I hear Crossfit Grand Rapids works pretty well….), eat a whole foods based diet, and you will be all set. I promise.

WAIT! Before I promise this, you have to know one last thing. This will not all happen in a weeks-time. Probably not even a months-time (there will be many benefits and changes along the way, but Rich Froning didn’t get his abs in one month!). BE PATIENT! This process of health and fitness is a lifelong journey! You should not view your eat habits as a “diet”, or something temporary. These changes are to be sustainable and easily maintained for the rest of your life. Balance these changes and healthy additions and you will feel better, live better, and perform better. That’s my promise.
