Before & after I lost 60 pounds icon smile Have Fun Getting Fit

I was overweight half my life & used to think that eating healthy was boring & miserable.

I was wrong.

After losing 60 lbs, I became obsessed with doing too much cardio & eating too little calories, while also calorie counting. Then I realized that eating healthy is AMAZE, super yummy, & it’ll change your life.

I started playing with food . . .and having a blast. I created new recipes – made them and the most fun part . . . taste testing!! Now, I have teamed up with my friend Sarah to bring you the most FUN cookbook!

Your Body and Your Image: Seeing Yourself Healthy

The way you see yourself & your thoughts are literally what creates your life & happiness. I have personally struggled with an unhealthy body image for most of my life. I was overweight for half my life & a few years ago finally lost 60 lbs. Since then I’ve kept it off (gained a few in muscle though), but I continue to view myself as the girl I used to be when I looked in the mirror. Then God & the Pastor at my church started working on me about this topic. There is a way to love yourself & I like to call it your body and your image: seeing yourself healthy.

It’s all about the thoughts that you let stay in your head – you have to control that ACESSS – those negative thoughts CAN be kicked to the curb! There are going to be so many negative thoughts that pass through your mind each day, but you MUST overcome them with positive thinking & the Word of God. Remember how God views you & just how beautiful & fearless He made you. You DESERVE to be happy! Surround yourself with positivity so that those negative thoughts don’t stand a chance. It’s your body and your image: seeing yourself healthy.

Here are some more tips that I found, I love this list!!! It’s your body and your image: seeing yourself healthy.

I want to encourage you to enjoy the process & be thankful for what you do have! My body has changed A LOT since starting Insanity almost 2 months ago! I’m not exactly where I want to be because I want to continue getting more toned & stronger, but I’m so thankful for how far I’ve come! I’m now able to get through almost all the workouts without stopping, I’ve lost several inches & a few pounds, I have a little mini two pack that comes & goes, my cellulite is basically go on, & my arms are more toned. So I’m sharing that with you to say pick out the GOOD – go write down your list & be thankful for that today! Stop complaining about the rest & thank God for what you do have right now! It’s your body and your image: seeing yourself healthy.

6 Easy Ways to Rev Up Your Metabolism

Rev Up Your Metabolism 6 Easy Ways to Rev Up Your Metabolism

Your metabolism is one thing that can greatly affect your results from exercising & eating. Some people are blessed naturally & have super fast metabolisms, whereas some people have much slower ones like myself. My mom is one of those with a fast metabolism, she can eat whatever she wants & not gain weight. I, on the other hand, have to be super particular about everything that I put in my body. But, the good news is, according to Self Magazine, there are 6 easy ways to rev up your metabolism. They  can achieve all your fitness goals & melt off those pounds & inches!

1. Take a run. Running burns lots of calories & also slows the aging process!

2. Lift weights. Strength training is super important because lean muscle increases your metabolism. Lift weights for at least 20 minutes, 3 times a week.

3. Get in some cardio. High intensity interval training, jumping rope, & kickboxing are all great forms that can double your metabolic rate for an entree half hour after exercising.

4. Eat frequently. You’ll need to eat every 2-3 hours to rev up your metabolism.

5. Drink lots of water. If you don’t drink enough, your metabolism may decrease. Try to drink 8 glasses a day!

6. Eat more fiber & protein. Fiber helps you burn extra energy when you’re processing it. Protein helps rebuild muscle tissue which is essential for increasing your metabolism.

Try trying out these 6 easy ways to rev up your metabolism & you’ll see the inches melt off in no time!

And just something funny (because I’m a goof) in closing!
