Never tell yourself you made a mistake, you really just gave your body a greater challenge and your mind more motivation to work harder in the gym! Calling yourself out on double snacking or what not will only bring you down and ruin your mood with your friend or family when really ther is nothing you can do but to work harder in the gym and/or let it go. Stay Positive! :)
If your worrying about your intakes or what not, fear none about the veggies you consume beacuse they will for sure help you out later in the day. They will turn off hunger, prevent unecessary diseases, slim you down and make you feel and look like a naturally healthy person! If you get that urge to want to eat because your friend is, or you want to snack because your watching a movie, eat some mini carrots or some canned spinach or asparagus or any other veggies you love!
1 med. sized banana(rypish/brown)
Need a healthy, natural, sweet, and usable substitute for cooking? IN place of eggs or anything else unecessary? Go the Vegan route and use bananas. It only takes one, mush up your ingredients w/ your hands and it makes it fun!!!!
This is true, i use this tip and it helps trmendously. My siblings always ask me how i stay away from sweets, and i just dont eat them! If you dont tease yourself with the slightest taste or thought, you won want more! Simple? It really is. And if someone is trying to get you to taste something you know in unhealthy and might be good and they say "well what if you like it?" THAT might just be the problem huh? So dont give in, it isnt worth it, really. But if it is to you, and its NATURAL, do it!
Munch on dry corn flakes or cheerios!!! W/ Peanut butter! preferably Adams. But what you do is set aside 1-2 tbls. of P.B. w/ a fork. Dip your fork to where there is only a light coating of P.B. on it and then dip it in your dry cereal! Fun, satisfying, crunchy, sweet, DELICIOUS!!!!! And most importantly, NATURAL!!
Flex while your walking, talking, singing, dancing, sitting, thinking, EVERYWHERE! Flex, it really hhelps with tightening your abs and keeping them hard. I do not recommend this for a full workout but if you are like a lot of older women or younger women i guess, your excuse may be, "Well i dont have enough time to work out? I'm too busy?" Welll ladies, or men, flex no matter what you are doing because you will eventually make a habit out of this & you'll be workin ur abs. Flex your cheeks too!
I know that your best friend went on this cleanse and lost a ton of weight, you tried it and you just happened to gain back pounds you lost previously! Maybe you heard of this new fad on the internet: "The Peanut Butter Diet!!? Man, have i been waiting for soemthing like this!!" Get Real! Not only with the fact that society is only trying to sell you products, but with the fact that the only solution to your problem, is you! Stay lovely Angels!!!
