This may not be a helpful "secret" to some,but I'd thought I'd share it anyway.I log in on a calendar my weight/body fat almost every day because I want to SEE my progress.Now I've been told muscle weighs MORE than the loss of fat and it's too soon to see weight loss,unrealistic expectations,etc.
Roast or grill veggies (carrots, onion, peppers, etc) using olive oil cooking spray to avoid fat and calories and use seasonings. I cook a lot at once, weigh out 6 oz and put them in a baggies and into the freezer. They are sooo sweet when they are thawed. I do the same with meat so it's on hand.
It's okay to start fresh when you're having trouble staying consistent. Sometimes evaluating what isn't working is the next step for continued (or new!) success.
I Have RA & OA when I exercise there are moves that are too painful to do. I just make sure I keep moving.
Today with be a beautiful glorious day. I am happy, healthy and full of life. As long as God is on my side he will keep me strong. Enjoy every minute of your life because everyone is precious and a gift.
Fight stinky workout sneakers in your locker/ closet by putting a Bounce sheet in them after working out. I put Bounce sheets in all of my drawers and closets so my clothes keep smelling fresh. Just recycle the ones fresh out of the dryer when you do laundry.
When I look for a treat I like to make sure it has some nutritional value. These are great because they only have 140 calories and 1.5 grams of fat. The carbs are a little high at 30 grams, sugar is 15 grams, however they do have 3 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein. Just Yummy!
Make sure to try new recipes so your food selection won't become boring. Find new ways to workout , to keep your body guessing.
Getting up at 4:30 and getting my exercise done before I am awake enough to make excuses works for me!
