With Christmas, New Year’s Eve and Day, and with the new year approaching, I thoughts it’s about time I have on someone to help us restart our healthy habits. Healthy habits is more than just eating better or working out. Healthy Habits is all about making small changes for BIG results.
I have known Jordan Ponder for over 10 years. During those years he has been in the natural bodybuilding circuit. Year after year he has increased his size, rankings, and determination to take first in event after event. Jordan is a very serious man when it comes to bodybuilding and keeping focused making healthy habits apart of his life daily.
How does bodybuilding relate to Operation Self Reset? The real reason why I invited Jordan Ponder to the OSR podcast is so he can spread his philosophy on changing and implementing healthy habits into our lives. He has one of the best outlooks on health and fitness of any magazine, book, or website I have come across. Jordan’s big idea focuses on creating healthy habits so that small changes can make huge results. This conversation is not about how to diet, how to work out, or how to look good in a swimsuit for the summer of 2014. Jordan shares practical and easy steps to help you reach your goal of overall health. If you are looking for a how to loose weight or what should I eat guide I suggest you look online. The best tip Jordan shares is simple, easy, and not that hard to do. All you have to do is start making healthy habits right now. That is it one step.
During the interview we have a great conversation about starting, creating, and sticking to healthy habits. The big question I had for Jordan is how does one pass up the cravings of sweets? I personally work out daily and live a healthy lifestyle but like anyone else, I get sidelined a few too many times with sweets. He shares a simple and practical way to bypass these cravings its falling back onto his philosophy of healthy habits. His answer is that he prepares for them. Yes, it’s as simple as that. If you fail to prepare you prepare to fail. That is the honest truth. Jordan suggests that if you know around 4 p.m. each day you NEED something sweet, just have something prepared. Jordan Ponder has a teaspoon of almond butter to hold him over or Greek yogurt with sugar-free Jello.
