I think there’s a misconception that the pursuit of a high level of fitness needs to be an all-consuming obsession. The reality is that anything you do to get up and move your body takes you one step closer to the fit body you were born to have.
Shadow box a few rounds in the morning (great way to get yourself amped up for a big meeting or busy/stressful workday). Crawl up the stairs in your house on all fours for an evening; really focus on using your whole body …

I start with a salmon steak, which I cook up with a little bit of lemon, dill pickle juice and garlic.
