With being somewhat lethargic all sumer, I’ve been thinking of a new Conditioning Plan for the Fall and really it has to motivate me to want to do it regularly.
With Season 2 of Eat St. premiering tonight on Food Network Canada at 9 pm EST/PST and putting out this evil tease:
… it did get me thinking, why do my cravings and my fitness have to be at odds with one another? Why can’t I use one to inspire the other?
And with that, I developed this Autumn Conditioning Plan:
- Watch the latest episode of Eat St. to obtain that week’s cravings.
- Look up on my Eat St. App where carts are near me (wherever that may be) to satiate the latest craving.
- Put on my walking shoes to hunt down the desired food cart.
- Reward myself with a treat from the desired food cart.
Now I have thought this through quite extensively, and really, I think it is a win-win both for my tummy and my thighs. You see, Eat St. airs on Food Network Canada on Friday nights at 9 pm EST/PST, so that gives me an active adventure every Saturday. I just have to promise myself that I use my own two feet, rather than the car to get to that food cart. And if there is more than one food cart, then that means more than one day of exercise and possibly timing everything for hours and whether the cart is open on a Sunday or not, but the app should help with that.
Just think about it. Exercise on-route to the cart. A reward. Exercise on the way home to work off the reward.
Thinking about it, this actually reminds me of my weekly walks with Raul, just with street food rather than alcohol. Hmm … now what if we combined them all …
