Started working out with the trainer again yesterday, wheew. Talk about being pushed to your max. I have moved down to once a week with her now that the wedding is over, but boy am I ever glad I started running again last week. If not I would have been a string noodle being flopped around trying to gain my strength to walk and lift my arms!
Working out is a great way of life and good for your body. I am no health freak, but I do watch what I eat for the most part. Girl does like to splurge on a fried food here and there, but I feel that is okay from time to time if you take care of self most of time! :) Living with a man who does not like greens makes it hard to eat super healthy or stick to any diet plan, but we do grilled foods and I throw my own veggies in, but there is always a good starch with him. haha! Key is to eat good during day for me! :)
Anyone else find it hard to get motivated? I know I do! Here are some ways I try and stay in shape and eat healthy!
1- Make goals each week and use an app to keep track! I use mapmyRun to track how much I've done! My goal is to try and run 9-10 miles/wk. Even if haven't made it to my goal I still end week running more than I did hadn't I set. I atleast run 3 times a week.
2-No sweets in house
3- Eat at home and cook meals. (you would be surprised at how good eating at home is for you.)
3-take healthy snacks to work so u do not overeat each meal
4- light snacks often
5- breakfast, breakfast, breakfast! The only meal where it is okay to overeat because it is so important
What motivates you? Or tricks do you use to stay in shape!
