How We Use Summer for Motivation and Reset

Excited Child in Beach Towel on Summer Day

Summertime, and the livin’ is easy — am I right?

Summer means warm weather, fresh veggies, and vacations. All the things we loved as young kids and still love today.

But for Matt and I, the mid-year months also provide an opportunity for renewed motivation and reset.

Maybe it’s the fresh food. Maybe it’s the simple desire to look good at the beach. Whatever it is, we’re both making changes this summer.

In today’s episode we discuss the power of the summer season, and how to use it to set new health, fitness, and nutrition goals to round out the year.

Here’s what we talk about in this episode:

  • Why a mid-year reset?
  • How access to fresh vegetables changes our diets
  • Matt’s new daily food routine
  • Motivation for fall races
  • Running and eating your way through vacation

    Hi Matt,
    I use to follow you a lot but then I became a paraplegic by a accident. I don’t follow much unless it’s about an athlete ‘s life or book. If you know any para athletes it would be great read about their no meat plan.
    Thank you
    Terri

  2. I completely agree summer is a great time to reset. One thing I have been trying to do this summer is transition into becoming a vegan, but I am allergic to nuts and this makes it REALLY hard. Any suggestions are well taken! Thank you so much.

  3. Summer=Sport, it’s well known rule from my childhood 🙂 But today I have not only sport, but also a hadr work 🙁
