I’m just going to give general tips for being healthier, not
changing your weight, because we all have different struggles.
Consider your beverages:
-soda in moderation (if at all)
-juice has quite a few calories (use that info how you wish)
-drink more water
because almost everyone could do with more water.
-if you drink alcohol, look at
what mixers you’re using. Some premade mixes are absolutely loaded with sugar.
Plan ahead so you make better choices:
We often make
choices based on what’s easiest or most convenient. You’re much less likely to eat take out if you have a
yummy, healthy meal waiting for you in the fridge.
Give yourself good food options:
Be realistic. You’re not going
to eat only kale and sweet potatoes for the rest of your life. Have a lot of different healthy
options that suit almost every mood.
I don’t care how. Just move your body several times a
week. It could be yoga in your living room. It could be taking a walk. I don’t care.
Just move SOMEHOW.
You are wonderful. You deserve to be healthy
I’ve recently started going to the gym and working out more. And I am noticing improvements and I’m starting to feel more and more comfortable in my own skin but I struggle with eating healthy, do you have any advice?
That’s a great question. First of all, I’m so proud of you for taking care of yourself. You and your body deserve the best.
Secondly, there are a couple things you can think about when you’re eating healthy. The first thing is to find healthy food that you like. For example, I don’t like kale. I think it’s gross. I’m not going to force myself to eat it and be absolutely miserable. I also don’t deprive myself of things I love. If I’m dying for chocolate, I eat some. I eat a smaller piece and leave the rest of the bar in the cupboard because I know if I sit down with a huge chocolate bar, I’ll eat the whole thing, and because I don’t deprive myself, I don’t “fall of the wagon” and binge eat a bunch of junk food. If you’re making yourself miserable with your food choices, you won’t stick with eating healthy.
By changing up your diet, you have created a wonderful opportunity to explore new foods and recipes! Use this as an opportunity to find new foods and recipes that you like. This will also keep you from eating the same thing over and over and being miserable.
Meal prep is also a great way to keep up with a healthy diet. Sometimes we eat junk because it’s the easiest option, but if you have a yummy healthy option ready for you in the fridge, you’re much less likely to go for junk.
Good luck on your healthy journey! I’m already proud of you.
When you love that fitness life
But you keep thinking about food even when you’re not hungry.
When Gym Is Life And you’re Trying Not To
Think about food or working out.
The Only Time You Will See Me Running
Is when there is food or a squat rack just got free.
Hi, firstly I'm a big fan of your posts. Well I was wondering how possible it is to lose weight without the gym. Let's say 60 pounds. And estimatedly how long?
Thank you so much!
Do you mean without a gym membership or without working out?
If you mean without a gym, there are PLENTY of workouts you can do in your own home without equipment, so that might be something you want to look into.
You can definitely lose weight without working out, but it may be slower, so make sure you’re patient. It really depends on how much you weigh to begin with. 60 lbs is quite a bit of weight and will likely take awhile. Take it 10-20 lbs at a time.
To start with, I’d say to eat normally for a week or two, but count your calories. This way, you have a baseline for your diet and you know how much you’re eating to begin with.
Then, you need to figure out how much you should be eating for your current weight and activity level. You can find these daily intake calculators online. Be careful that you are still taking in enough calories. Do NOT starve yourself!
Have a plan. Try to make better, healthier choices. Increase your protein, fruits, and veggies. Cut down on the junk food. Be patient and love yourself.
