Something new, tastes great but need a couple more days to validate its performance
As I lay here trying to sleep, I started scolding myself for using my being sick the past few months as an excuse to eat all the crap (aka comfort food) I have wanted without any regard to my health. Not only have I gained back almost all the weight I worked so hard to lose, but I have lost the confidence and self love that I had gained.
Enough is enough. I've got no more time for this nonsense.⏲It's time to pick myself back up and get back to it.
I am starting over. I'm okay with that. I have no other choice because I'm tired of this struggle. 💯
I'm asking you for help. Help pick me up if you notice I'm MIA. Give me a virtual high five or first bump every now and again. 👊 I can do this, but not alone!
I'm thankful I have my supportive and encouraging husband and son. I need to really listen to what they are telling me and receive the love they give me. ❤
I've got this!
Why is it that starvation is considered so detrimental to our bodies? Many resort to starving themselves when it comes to weight loss, because of the fact that calorie restriction to a certain extent can allow for weight loss. However, one thing that is often overlooked is that in restricting our bodies of these nutrients and calories, we are allowing our bodies to go into starvation mode, which causes our bodies to not only reduce fat mass but also our lean muscle mass. The reason why this is so harmful is because it weakens and harms our bodies in the long run, even though it may not seem like it at first. Not only does starvation decrease bone density which causes us to become more prone to injuries, it lessons our energy levels and slows down our metabolisms which makes it harder for us to lose weight later on. Not to mention, most of the time people end up gaining it all back when they resort to normal eating habits. This is due to the fact that once we return to a normal calorie intake, our bodies store the extra calories as fat to restore the lost fat during starvation. -
I know it is hard at times to stay patient, and to battle that urge to find a shortcut or an easy way out. Trust me, I’ve been there, and I still struggle to this day. But you just have to tell yourself day by day that your body is yours to care for, and the looks are NOT a priority, just an additional reward. Remember that all that really matters at the end of the day is that you are healthy, happy, and strong ❤️💪🏼 .
HIIT workout dressed like a sherbet sweet he he 💛💗
Feeling so freaking motivated atm since having such a rubbish few weeks at the gym. A mixture of the peach plan community, a change of gyms (filmed this a few days ago before the change) and just in general needing that down time to reassess why I loved working out and I’m a brand new woman!!! If you’re feeling in a rut I would 100% recommend taking that break to reassess what it is you love about working out and WHY you do it, as well as maybe having a change of scenery - working out at home for a change or visiting a different gym. We all have those low days/weeks of motivation but it’s usually just a phase. Everything changes. ❤️

There’s a difference between a treat meal & a cheat day! 💯 Here’s an illustration of how it definitely would not be the treat meal throwing you off but adopting a “f*ck it” mentality & turning it into a cheat day could definitely begin to derail your progress.
Things like having 2 slices of pizza, a cookie here or two or an occasional treat will not throw you off your goals 🍕 However, a whole day of junk food eating or a whole weekend adds up quick & can totally begin to slow down your hard work.
My tips for staying on track & not stressing over treat meals:
1 - Make sure to eat throughout the day even if you know you’re going to splurge on dinner: Going into a party or dinner starving is only going to make you lose complete control. .
2 - Save your treat meal for later in the day: Starting your day off on a bad foot will make it more likely for you to adopt a “f*ck it” mentality early on.
3 - Enjoy what you want, not what people peer pressure you to eat: There will always be another holiday, birthday party, event you have to go to. You don’t have to splurge at everything but definitely enjoy the foods you want!
4 - Don’t feel guilty, beat yourself or think you haver to go on a juice cleanse even if you had a cheat day: Just get right back to your normal clean eating routine & be kind to yourself, we’re all human.
