I will always remember as I keep photos of my days of eating disoroders. Having an eating disorder is not a past life. It is a disease. There is no cure because it can return any day, any time, at any age.
I have tried as mentioned in prior blogs several programs to my over weight, and several shakes. My favorite and one I have adhered to is Shakeology. It comes in several flavors and you can add your healthy components to make it a desert.
How do you picture yourself? Your image? How do you want to look?
Stop and just imagine, really how do you want to look? I had to recently look at my image AGAIN. Yes because it was changing . Quick share, I was on a great movement to changing my image of me. I got a bit side tracked and fell off.
When seeds are planted we look for a beautiful plant, tree, grass. We do what is necessary to make the growth the image we visioned.
How about your image? Did you plant your seeds? Your growth has several components and sometimes may need a little tweaking. Just as seeds of the earth require watering, removing objects, pruning, trimming.
Nutrition, work out, sleep are the components to your image. Okay now plant those seeds and look at your image. Oh how beautiful, handsome, healthy and fit you look.
I sometimes wonder if there are many individuals that share my defense in workout. I know my goals and yet I look for motivation on my “slack days”.
Slack days are what I call I want to stop half way through a workout, or I do not put all my energy into the workout, or just look for an excuse not to workout.
I have now created my own motivation. I use the “PUSH” method. I visualize how I want to look and feel and then I push. I push through my workout with energy and I feel great.
So lets PUSH together and encourage others to PUSH there is a goal we want to achieve.
I am a vegan 363 days of the year. Yes I will consume turkey on Thanksgiving and Christmas. I love sweets. I am good if I drink my Shakeology daily, it really does curb my unhealthy cravings. I can however push myself to give into temptation and overindulge.
So , if you have never behaved as me good. I will continue my routine exercise, but it seems so hard and I fatigue so quickly. It takes a few days to really feel at burn and feel good about me again.
Yes you can overindulge, but we aware of your limits. The food you consume can and will effect your workout. Continue reading “The Food You Eat and Exercise”
Have you tried that workout you knew you could nailed but you failed? I can not speak for you. I can however share my experience.
I agree to no carbs for a few days with a friend of mine. The first day I was a bit slow, thought it was my lack of water intake. Some days I am busy so getting in the water can be a bit hectic, especially when I am not close to the little excretion room.
The second day I was unable to complete my workout. A thirty pound dumbell felt like 100 pounds, 15 pounds was as heavy. I did complete my workout but with 5 and 8 pound dumbells, with a struggle. I was wasted afterwards.
My discussion with my friend was as follow. Are you consuming the right type of carbs and how much? Then came the list, I listened and it took every ounce of remaining strength to restrain myself from a scream.
I followed someone who ate every unhealthy carb. on the market.
First and far most to anyone on a diet free of carbs, you are doing your body an injustice. Punish yourself and learn about healthy carbs, go ahead now read on it. WE NEED CARBS. Carbs create energy to help tackle those unwanted inches, pounds and fat. The carbs must be the healthy ones and there are many.
We all have heard weights build muscles and females run away men run to.
The truth is weights have a greater role with both females and males.
Females, weights define, contour, and burn fat. Weights also lifts, I am so happy for the lift I am experiencing in my journey. Weights also is an aide to improve bone density.
Males, safety first but increasing the weight lifting in numbers will burn fat, and build muscle with consistency.
Of course, female, or male NUTRITION is important and the correct portion has a major role to get the full benefit of the power of weights.
Is there a time in your life, as I have many, that you felt ENERGIZED.
Remember that first love date, the excitement, or that bonus check? How about the outfit you went off your budget ( I know everyone does not have one), fortunate for you.
Or do you recall your favorite super hero as a kid? Maybe receiving that special gift?
Vision these events, recall the feeling, now put all that together and get excited to create the body you want.
Whatever phase you are in your fitness, get EXCITED, add the ENERGY and today begin to create the new you.
The scale alone does not define your weight loss journey
Hey there, how do you define your body? What do you see when you look in the mirror?
Beauty, for all the females. Well you men handsome.
Your body, are you just looking at the scale? The scale defines a small, but important role in your physique. How about the inches, many of us, like me loose inches before that confusing scale moves. I say it is confusing because we see and feel the inches lost.
Your body is defined by your exercise regimen, your nutrition, your water intake, how you feel about you, your beauty.
To ACHIEVE any weight loss goals it is a MUST that you BELIEVE
