Fresh Start

Well, Well, Well! Look at you sitting over there being blessed with another opportunity to be great. If you are reading this then you are alive and have the chance to fix anything that fell apart this past weekend or past year. But you have to let go of what was, what is and grab onto what is to come.

It is so easy to beat yourself up and feel like crawling under a rock and just give up. BUT PLEASE DON’T! Know that you aren’t alone. An estimated 45 million Americans go on a diet each year. Americans spend $33 billion each year on weight loss products. Nearly two-thirds of Americans are overweight or obese. You are not unaccompanied when it comes to your weight loss journey.

Here is what I want you to do. No longer think about your bad days, months, or past years. Your focal point should be on today and tomorrow. The only way that we can get better is by focusing on being better. If we sit back and continue to stress over our past behavior then we will remain in that current situation. Let it go!

Challenge yourself to do a 20 minute or 30-minute workout every day. I’m a Health Coach and a trainer in Atlanta and I have clients that range from 25-80 and guess what? They all have the same goal. They all want to be HEALTHY and able to live a producitve life. I give each and every one of them the same advice.

  • Sleep Sleep Sleep at least 7-8 hours and unplug for at least an hour before you go to sleep
  • Eat dinner by 7:00 every night even on the weekend’s
  • Drink Water- half your body weight
  • workout every day for 30 minutes a day. If you are trying to lose a substantial amount of weight then please up that to at least 60 minutes.
  • Switch up your workouts. Plyometrics shouldn’t be done daily.
  • Swimming and Yoga should be a HUGE part of your fitness journey. (my current path)

Last but not least, continue to follow my blog for healthy meals and know this one major thing about me……..I love food. So I will always have tasty meals and treats.

I don’t believe that you should have to give up your favorite meals in order to reach your fitness goal. But you will have to modify ingredients and be mindful of your portions. Portion control will save you.

We have a bad habit of eating while watching TV and since you are distracted you keep shoveling in your food. So cut off the TV and engage in conversation.

Most importantly, have fun while on your fitness journey and be patient. Results will come💗

You could have chosen any blog to read but you chose mine and I’m honored.
