We would like to recognize our Lemoine Wellness Champion for the Month of July- Cain Menard!
For those of you who don’t know, Cain started working at Lemoine 6 months ago as a project engineer. He is currently working with Eric Simcoe and Jonathan Scott on the Ferguson Warehouse project.
We asked Cain what is something he does every day to stay healthy. He said, “My healthy lifestyle is built on a foundation of consistent routines. I wake up at 4:15 every morning to CrossFit train for an hour or two. Along with regular exercise, I meal prep and track my macros; between 170-190 grams of protein and carbs and 70-80 grams of fat per day. Just as important as diet and exercise is rest and recovery. I make sure to get 7 hours of sleep a night at the very least, prioritizing sleep over going out or watching Netflix. Most nights I’m in bed by 8:30!”
When asked what motivates him to stay healthy, Cain said, “What motivates me to stay healthy and active are my personal goals. I’m competing in the Ragin Games, a CrossFit competition, at the end of the month, and hope to make competition a regular thing. In my experience, a healthy and active lifestyle is also an important part of maintaining a level head. When I’ve been consistent with my diet, exercise, and rest I generally feel better about myself, and all around happier. Sticking with a rigid routine has decreased my stress and anxiety because it simply eliminates analysis paralysis. What am I going to eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? What time will I wake up? What will I do once I get off of work? What will I watch on Netflix? All of these little decisions throughout the day were already made when I planned the entire week out on Sunday. All that’s left is to just do it.”
Cain started getting serious about his health in his second year of college after putting on that freshman 25. Cain’s advice to living a healthy lifestyle is that it all starts with a routine!
Congratulations Cain! We are extremely proud of you! Continue striving to be a healthier version of yourself every day!
