If you’re just starting this journey like me, C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S!! That’s a big first step!
If you’re thinking about it, just do it. Start off small and work your way up!
Here are my tips and tricks along with some of my fave recipes recently.. (I’ll do a more in depth post soon if you guys want, xx) follow me on Pinterest for more recipes!
First and foremost, get a solid crew – you know people who get it and cheer you on. The ones who you can bitch too when you want to quit. People who support you! This is very important..
Cook & meal prep – it’s easier and honestly it will keep you from cheating/eating unhealthy. Trust me, I don’t like to cook but I have found some yummy recipes lately as a result. ALL THANKS to Pinterest..
TWO WORDS: Portion Control. Read labels, get familiar with ingredients. Even if something is healthy, you can easily over eat way beyond the serving size. This is key. I struggle with this but have gotten so much better..
Jot it down – keep a log, on your phone or in a journal like I have. It helps to visualize your goals and helps you reflect. The scale can be disheartening at times which is why I stay away from it.. think progress, not perfection.
Understand that this takes time, fad diets are the worst! Results are not immediate. This will take time AND work. Be ready to put in the work and commit. It is hard, you will fall off and then have to get back on. That is okay, it happens to everyone.
Find success in your struggle. There is always something to be grateful about, even on the days where my workouts suck – I am still glad I worked out!
Find what works for you and stick to it. Some people do Keto, others do Herbalife, vegetarian or vegan. I have found that Herbalife works for ME and MY busy lifestyle. I’ve lost more than 20 pounds but more importantly I have gained insight on what my body reacts too. I also bought a bike and I am loving the at home workouts; they are soo convenient!
Finally, have fun! Appreciate your body for what it has done, this is not a punishment but rather a healthier way of living! Set goals and crush them!
Keto Peanut butter cookies for that sweet tooth craving!
I can’t wait to post progress pics very soon.. I would love to see your progress and hear any comments on what works for you down below..
Let’s get fit together!
