Here is another entry from www.MattNumrich.com, where I talk about the three passions in my life – Fighting, Family and Faith:
Fighting: Iâ€™ll give you a break on the diet and training stuff this weekâ€¦ as I will post a full week of diet examples next weekâ€¦ promise. The one tip I will give you, is something I learned years agoâ€¦ ask yourself this question before any kind of food crosses your lips: â€śWill this food cleanse or clog?â€ť. Water, cleanse. Beer, clog. Salad, cleanse. Hamburger, clog. What about Doritos? Clog. Carrots? Cleanse. Want to muck up your system, consume these: donuts, soda pop and pizza. Want to cleanse? Eat these: Beans, baked potato and almonds. You have a choice everyday, every time you eat. Your food can either prepare you for your days needs, protect you against sickness and energize youâ€¦ or it can drag you down, lead to serious health concerns and even poorly role model for you kids. Choose wisely.
Family/Faith: I decided to pair these two topics together today, and relate them directly to the diet tips I gave you in the â€śfightingâ€ť part above. If you want to truly challenge yourself, and build solid core character traits which will steer you from a lot of painâ€¦ Ask yourself, â€śWill this action/behavior/thought help me to become a better father/mother/person/child of God?â€ť. Super simple, but super challenging, as we all act and think in ways that donâ€™t serve us, our purpose in life and honor God. The challenge is can you stop those things that donâ€™t serve the greater good, and focus on things that move us towards being a better person and contributor to society?
