Hey guys! I wanted to fill you in on some of my fitness tips and tricks. I have lost about 23 pounds and get asked HOW all the time. So I am here to give you guys what has worked for me and hopefully it will work for you too!
Tip 1. Get up and move! Before last Spring, I never really exercised or got up and moved. I started walking for about an hour a day every morning. Once that got “easy” I went to 2 times a day, once in the morning and once after dinner. Recently I have started adding some running to my routine and it has made a huge difference!
Tip 2. Drink a ton of water!!! I always thought I drank enough water ( about a bottle a day) but when I started tripling what I drank I noticed a big change in the way I felt. My body didn’t feel swollen, my skin became so clear, and I just felt alive. Overtime my body has gotten used to me only drinking water, so when I do put something sugary into my body my stomach does not love it.
Tip 3. Eat healthier on a regular basis. I have tried every known diet and quick fix there ins, but it wasn’t until I changed the way I eat completely that I saw real results. I am going to share with you guys exactly what I eat day to day but please known there is probably better things to eat. This has just worked for me!
Breakfast – Belvita Breakfast Biscuits in Peanut Butter
Lunch- Couscous with canned “Mexican” corn
Dinner- Baked chicken. Garlic roasted broccoli, mushrooms, and onions. and Quinoa.
Snacks- I really enjoy gluten free pretzels or apples with some peanut butter
Disclaimer* I always have a cheat day. I find I stick more to my healthy eating when I give myself one day a week of eating what I want. Fortunately the healthier I eat daily the less I crave sugar and salty things.
