The science of exercise is proven right once again.
I always say I do not like starving myself. I know we need to curb or quit junk food or even just over- eating. Food is not our enemy unless we start treating it as it lol
I strongly believe in regular exercise not only because it is super good for my health but, I am more in control of how and what I eat. When we exercise our metabolism improve. I manage my eating habits very well because I know staying active will keep the centimetres away. I enjoy my pizza so every two or sometimes three months. I also sip on an appletizer or sparkled just juice drinky now and then when I get the craving lol(not very often). Hot chips and fish take away(proudly South African) is also one of my favorites. The trick is to know how to balance it. And don’t forget Exercise at least three to five times a week for 15minutes.
Why this title?
I didn’t exercise since the Beginning of this month. My home practice pretty is much poor. The challenge I’m facing also, is the fact that I might change career paths. So much has happened and things are just crazy. I just couldn’t find the time to exercise. And we speak about eating habits… Omw! I’m off track.
So, I weigh myself only every three months and I gained 1kg. But that’s not the issue. It’s the change around my waist and thighs. Yes ladies! It’s all the bread(white), excessive cravings for sweet stuff like cake, tarts and chocolate aaaaah!! I told my husband I do not know where this is coming from. And believe me when I say I am not a sweet stuff lover. But I couldn’t care less, I embraced the phase hehehe. I could feel the hips and tummy started with a little fold. I kept looking at myself in the mirror to see if I’m sagging hahaha!
I didn’t mention all the wrong stuff and way I ate because I think I am too shy. All I need you to know bread is unfortunately our enemy. Especially if it is not a healthy bread and too much of it without an active lifestyle. I love my whole grain bread it is just so difficult to get my husband into that habit. When I buy me bread it often get mouldy too quick because I eat so little of it. But April was or is the month I just went on a don’t care spree and I am suffering the consequences. Last night I pulled up my socks and decided to do a short workout and I already feel better.
If you are at the beginning of your weight loss journey, please note that you need to be hard on yourself unfortunately. Getting rid of bad habits can be tuff. So you need to discipline yourself.
Set realistic Goals
Don’t be unrealistic and expect results too soon. Be patient and set a goal that’ll be suitable to your type of lifestyle. Pull up an eating plan and follow it thoroughly. Make use of imagery and put up a picture of how you want to look in three months for example.
Make the choice
Be honest with yourself when you decide to lose weight or live more healthily. Be sure you are doing it for yourself and not people or just because fitness became the new “in-thing”. It need to come from inside. Make it personal and do it for your own good. When you make it personal it’ll be a positive to stick to your plans.
Make use of measuring tape and take your centimeters weekly: waist, bust, thighs, hips, biceps, and calves. Take pictures and videos of yourself to see how you are improving. It is very motivational to see your improvement like that.
I do not believe in diets. I know it works for some people and there are many good diets out there that works very good. I believe in portion management and the right amount of Nutrients required per day.
If you have a good diet plan set up by a nutritionist or else, good for you! If you are like me who do not like to be told what to eat, start finding a way that works for you. Snack healthier, exercise regularly and become a new awesome you!
Let’s try to stay happy and healthy all the time!
I made a change again [happy face]
