Fit For The Road

20 EpisodesProduced by TJ HoustonWebsite

My name is TJ and I travel a lot for work. One thing that is really hard on the road is staying healthy and making healthy choices. This podcast is a way for me to share my journey to a healthier lifestyle while traveling over 150 days a year.


Where have I been? and what I eat at fast food restaurants on the road!

Hello and welcome to Fit For The Road, a podcast dedicated to making healthier choices when you are away from home! 

I am your host TJ Houston! Today I want to have a chat about fast food restaurants. When you are on the road a lot, there is gonna be a time in which you have to eat at a fast food restaurant so I thought I would share my picks on some healthier choices next time you are in the drive-through. 

Before we get into that, I want to share my weight loss update for 2019. This year, on January 1st, my starting weight was 192, and my body fat was at 25.1%. As of this week, my weight is down to 163. Trying to figure out the best calorie intake.
