No, it’s not what you are thinking at all! The Bold and the Beautiful actor Sean Kanan (Deacon Sharpe) recently revealed some of his best health and fitness tips, along with his advice on how to “cheat” the right way. And when we say cheat, we are talking about your diet, of course! Here’s what he has to say.
Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Sean opened up about his fitness and health routine. When asked about how he stays motivated when he doesn’t feel like working out, he said, “When I was recording the audio book for Way of the Cobra, I was hearing out loud my own words about discipline, which is something everyone struggles with. There is a difference between discipline and self-discipline. Discipline is when you have an external force exerted on you. Self-discipline is what you impose on yourself. You can get fantastic results with a personal trainer, or it pushes you getting up at 5:30 in the morning and going to the gym yourself.”
He added, “If you can instill self-discipline within yourself, it’s a wonderful thing, but do whatever works best for you. When I don’t want to work out, I bribe myself. I make deals with myself. I will listen to a motivational speech on YouTube and that gets me fired up to go…. Sometimes it’s as simple as flipping on a scene from Rocky where he’s pushing himself. Whatever it is to trick my mind into getting hyped up to go and do it, do it!”
Sean also had some good tips when it comes to giving yourself a little ‘cheat day’ in your diet. He said, “When it comes to cheating, if I want to have a piece of something that’s naughty, I’ll have a little of it — so I won’t wind up eating something horrendous two days later. As I mentioned, I love to prepare my own meals because I can prepare the portions. I know exactly what’s going in it, and the ritual of preparing the meal helps me stay focused on my diet because you’re putting time into the process of eating healthy, and it somehow seems to help me stay more committed.”
