Seriously girlfriend, you are paying Way. Too. Much!
I get it...
And guess what.... I DO, TOO!
But for real... YOU ARE PAYING WAY TOO MUCH!
I know nutrition can be super confusing. What plan do I follow? What's the latest trend? Should I go gluten free? Vegan? Aren't carbs supposed to be bad?
Here's a great example...
The word "vegan" is often confused with the word "healthy". YES, eating vegan CAN be super healthy, but it doesn't mean that EVERYTHING that's vegan is healthy.
A lot of my journey you can't see. It's been on the inside. It's the size of my smile while pinching my stomach. It's not having a legit meltdown while trying to find something in my closet that fits. It's feeling sexy in my own skin. It's being able to share pics like these and not cringe at the thought of hitting post.
Ever hear the saying "I wish I were as thin as when I thought I was fat?"
How was your January? Do you track your fitness and nutrition progress?
So many times I *think* I'm putting in the work, and getting frustrated with not seeing results, but when I actually track my progress I can see where my gaps are.... and then I have that "Oh, now I get it!" moment. haha
Unfortunately, I could make a list of the asshole comments I've seen people post on other people's transformation pics...
Let's face it, people can be real fucking assholes when they want to be.... usually when they're unhappy with themselves, directing their bullshit onto you, and comfortably hiding behind their computer screen.
I'm either addicted to sugar or I'm not. There's no in between. When I'm not, I don't crave it at all and even the smell turns me off. When I am, it's all I want, and the more I eat, the more I want it.
These past 2 weeks have been high sugar weeks for me, so today I'm starting a 3 day cleanse to kick my sugar habit and thought this would be the perfect time to help you do the same!
I've found I crave sugar for 4 different reasons.
But first... did you have any idea just how addicting sugar is? It's insane! Check out this pic!
That's all it took to lose THREE POINT FREAKING FIVE INCHES off my waist!
30 days ago I was chosen by Beachbody to participate in a test group for a new workout program they'll be releasing later this summer.... country dance inspired... and while I was thrilled to be chosen, I was also a skeptic.
Turns out I was soooo wrong about this program...
Today I'm celebrating a #NSV (Non Scale Victory!)
I felt confident enough to rock a midriff shirt yesterday at the Public Enemy concert! I can't believe the results I've had so far from this test group and I can't wait to share the final #'s with you next week... I may actually hit a double digit loss!! (And for real, where did this month go??) And I thought I would be ok wearing wedges until I found out the front of the VIP section was cobblestone. Should have brought some flip flops!!
Here are my takeaways so far that you can do with ANY program...
If you had told me 3 weeks ago that I'd be having this much FUN and getting these results from dancing to country music in my living room for 30 min a day and following a simple meal plan (which includes wine and chocolate!) I'd think you were CRAZY!!
And just being honest, I was also nervous I'd be wasting a month of my summer working out and measuring food and not being able to enjoy myself and go out and have drinks with friends. (Did I mention the workouts are only 30 min and you can have wine and chocolate!?)
I love seeing what celebs eat... especially when it's something I eat, too!
When a business coach shared this Cosmopolitan article with me today I was so excited!!! Not only do I love seeing what celebs eat, it's even better when you find out they eat similar to you, including my favorite superfood shake that I've been drinking every single day for over 4 years!
And can I just take a second and say how Ah-Mazing Candace Cameron Bure looks! Seriously.
