[1:26] Why do we get off course? Getting sick, injuries, traveling, and family crises are the most obvious, but it’s a surprisingly common problem that some of us actually don’t feel we are worthy!
[2:16] When you are sick or injured it is even more important to take better care of yourself. And sorry, but “comfort foods” are definitely NOT the answer…
[2:31] If you are sick, have bone broth! Check this article for a deeper dive: http://www.getjjv.com/bone-broth
[3:10] Get more protein — L-glutamine, in particular, can help when you are sick or injured.
[3:24] The worst thing you can do is to turn to sugar; it lowers your immune system.
[4:01] Fever or achy joints are signs for you NOT to workout.
[4:50] Start moving again — easy exercising — when you feel weak, but getting better.
[6:13] Plan ahead when you are traveling — take your blender!
[7:20] Try to know the places where you will go, Whole Foods can be delivered, too!
[8:43] Make sure you have a gym in your hotel, not a fitness room!
[9:20] Friends and family: if they are not with you in your health choices, do not try to evangelize them, just be the best role model.
[10:33] Setting boundaries with your family.
[12:18] When you have a purpose that is big enough, you can push through obstacles, and build resilience. What are your reasons? WHY are those reasons important to you?
