The Truth about Diets

Good evening all,

The holidays is typically when people decide its time to “get in shape” or “start watching what they eat” Instead of just saying and/or doing this once a year, how about making it part of your lifestyle? Have you ever thought about instead of putting yourself on a “strict diet” for a short period of time, that instead if you just normally eat healthier food choices. That means there really wouldn’t be much of a change toward your eating habits when  it comes to swim suit season??!! This doesn’t mean elimiting yourself from your favorite foods or never being able to have a bowl of ice cream (I mean lets get real ice cream is way to yummy to never eat) A change in your lifestyle of eating choices could mean simply just having one day a week that you choose to cave in and have something that you know you shouldn’t consume on a daily basis. I don’t really believe in diets because once someone is said to be off their diet or done with there diet, what happens? They go right back to eating the junk they did before they started the diet. You need to make it a lifestyle change and live by eating healthy not just 3 months out of the year! You know there always a way to make your favorite comfort dish in a more healthier way,take some time and search for recipes of your favorite foods but lightened, they are out there! Hold yourself accountable and make these changes for in the long run you will look and feel so much better with what you have choosen to put into your body.

Good afternoon everyone!

Today yall should make it the start of something new and clean out your refridgerators as well as your pantry!! We all know that junk food is addicting and if it’s in front of you it just makes it harder to resist. But wait, stop and think if you don’t have it available to you in your household wouldn’t that make it alot easier to avoid? Get rid of all the junk food and sugary drinks! Next, start planning your meals during the week so you know exactly what to get at the grocery store rather than just wondering the aisles where you could very easily spy a bag of Dortios. Something that I just recently thought of would be an excellent idea (and make my life alot easier) would be to make a little menu for yourself/family/roomates! Post it on the fridge each day and you will know exactly what is…

Top 3 Tips to a Sucessful Workout

Hello everyone,

Glad to be back in the grove of things, sorry i’ve been slanking on posting in here! So everyone loves a good workout right?? That amazing feeling after you leave the gym feeling great about yourself and it’s never a regreted decision. But, in order to have a sucessful workout I believe there are a few things to do that can make a big difference in your results. 1) Know exactly what body part/area you are going to be working. Everytime you go to the gym you should know what area of your body you plan to workout that day, that way when you get there (or even before hand would be best) you can already have a good idea on which exercises and machines you are going to use. I have found myself standing around sometimes, losing my momentum, trying to figure what to do next. 2) Always have a playlist of music. Create numerous playlists that include songs that will keep you pumped up and ready to move, don’t waste your time filtering through songs trying to find one. Music can really be encouraging and keep a person going, in my experirence I can tell a difference when I go the gym with music vs without music (especially doing cardio). Lastly, always eat around an hour before you go workout. In order to have energy to lift, run or whatever it may be you have to fuel your body to keep it running. Just like your car needs fuel to keep going, your body needs food to keep going.

Try these 3 things and let me know how your next gym experirence works out for you 🙂
