I used to drink every day whether I was on vacation or not. Wes from 5 years ago doesn’t even know who I am today.
My vacations used to be centered around alcohol. Room was always fully stocked with bottles. Whether I was on vacation or headed to a sporting event or concert, I would travel with mini bottles full of vodka so I always had quick access to free booze.
These days, however, it’s a much different story. Out of our 12 nights in Hawaii, we only drank alcohol twice and never got drunk, just had a few drinks. I really just enjoyed myself more without the alcohol. I want my body feeling good and to enjoy my surroundings fully. I want to rest fully and wake up feeling refreshed, energized, and ready to take on all of the amazing wonders Maui has to offer. I’m not saying I never drink, but it’s less and less all the time because my goals are so much bigger now, and alcohol is a poison that only detracts from those goals. If you want to drink and party all the time, that’s perfectly fine, and I won’t be mad at you because I’ve been there. But if your goal is longevity and vitality, you may want to rethink your priorities like I had to.
All that said, we enjoyed a few local beers while we were in Hawaii, so shout out to the Maui Brewing Company. Loved their nitro brewed coconut hiwa porter. Fantastic.
For the last 10 years, I have journaled every meal and every workout, and want to bring that history to life by sharing stories from diets past and compare with my lifestyle habits today. The goal is to provide some nutrition tips, entertainment, and hopefully some motivation for anyone looking to improve their health and fitness. If this show can move you one step closer to achieving your fitness goals, then it’s my pleasure to present it to you.
The bottom line is that I used to be extremely unhealthy. I abused junk food, drugs, and alcohol until I ballooned up to 270lbs. Now, I’m in the best shape of my life and want to inspire others by providing a glimpse into my transformation over the years and share the ways I was able to get it done. I’m a guy who has lived on both ends of the health spectrum and want to let everyone know that if I can do it, you can do it too. I’m by no means perfect, but have reached a place where healthy diet and exercise are non-negotiable aspects of my life, and want everyone around me to have that same gift. It’s time to Wise Up.
