So THIS Is Fitness | Health, Fitness, Running & Weight Loss

Health, fitness, running, weight loss... it doesn't have to be hard! Take it from a guy who's been there and "gets it" - your host, Darrell McTague. Having lost 130 lbs and finished ULTRAmarathons, he's learned it all the hard way so you don't have to.

The "holiday season" can be tough.

On any normal day... life is hard enough as it is. Factor in everything that comes with the holidays... and it can be enough to derail anyone. It can be tough to juggle family, food, and travel. The easy option is to give up and stop trying to make nutrition and fitness work. I submit to you: there is a better way. This is my now-yearly pitch... I call it "The Holiday Survival Guide".

I get it. Really, I do.

Like I said - life is busy as it is. The holidays crank that up to 11. So much shopping, organizing, cooking, cleaning, and coordinating to do it can make your head spin. Work usually gets more difficult, which interferes with home and personal life. Then there's the holidays themselves and all the travel involved... plus the food is a nightmare. How am I supposed to stick to "the plan" with 82 holiday meals?

Nobody said it was going to be easy.

Do-able doesn't mean simple or easy. It's going to be hard work, just like fitness and nutrition, in general, are hard work. But at the end of the day...

It's worth it.

How great will it feel to make it to January 1st and to know... "I did it. I made it through and didn't screw it all up". There's a certain sense of victory at stake here, not to mention that whole "your health" thing. I've got some thoughts on how you can do this thing. So, give a listen to Episode 64 and find out what's in The Holiday Survival Guide.

What's in this episode:

  • How life has been for me lately
  • What’s coming down the pipeline
  • And how to avoid the cascading failures that tend to come with the holiday season
    • Including keeping your physical fitness and nutrition in line
