Hello! Today is May 6, 2013
I have been at my heaviest, 148 pounds, and have gotten to 126 pounds, but the goal is to have a healthy body and use a maintenance program that I have been working on since August 2010. The issue is I am human! I am now at 142 pds again, emotional eating and all, took its toll! So now it is May 2013, and I am back to focusing on what I need to do to get back to my fighting weight, so to speak. It was August 7, 2010, that I started my meal replacement and fitness routine. It was a great experience and I had lost 9 pounds at the beginning! Then I did really well and got to 126 pds (my ultimate goal is 120).. It was a great motivator for me now I know I will get back to my goal weight and then I can focus on maintaining a healthy weight, and have great energy! It is truly involves discipline and a lifestyle change. Some quick tips I have learned on the way:
1: Always have a gym bag with sneakers, and workout clothes in your car and at home at all times. It helps, as you will now not have an excuse that you can’t go to the gym or even work out at home. You’ll have what you need and the car suggestion is for when you have the option to go the gym on the way home for the day, or first thing in the morning, or on a lunch hour, you’ll have the bag handy and be more likely to go into the gym!
2: Always have a bag of crackers or fruit on you at all times. This makes it easy to snack on something if you feel the need and you won’t be tempted to get junk food!
3: Don’t forget to drink your Shakeology once a day in place of one meal!
4: Eat two other healthy meals, every day. Make sure you have fruit/vegetables at some point each day.
5: Drink lots of water!!
These are things that have kept me on track so far, and I am confident in my quest… Join me!
