HOW DOES IT WORK?

Week 1: We’ll be swapping a meal or snack for the connivence of a nutrient dense shake that has a balance of carbohydrates, fats and protein.
Week 2: We’ll be having our shake for a meal or snack and adding in 3 days or workouts that you can do at home, anytime to fit YOUR schedule along with eating our meals in a 10 hour window
Week 3: We’ll be having our shake for a meal or snack, working out 3 times this week, choosing another meal from your day to ‘clean’ up…nothing fancy, think veggies, fruits, lean protein along with eating our meals in a 9 hour window
Week 4: We’ll be doing everything from week 4 with the exception we will be eating in an 8 hour window

when-you-see-your-old-pic

Ever see a picture of yourself and think ‘I don’t remember looking that bad!’?

Anytime I look at pictures of myself before I started consistency working out, not only do I see an unhealthy person but I also see an unhappy person. I can see the self doubt in my eyes, the lack of confidence in my smile and my low self worth by hiding behind someone else in the picture. Anyone else know what I’m talking about?

Taking progress pictures is a MUST for me. Sure, it helps me SEE my physical results but I’m also able to SEE the inner transformation as well. That extra sparkle in my eye and smile ๐Ÿ™‚ This is why I encourage you to take progress photos. Be proud of your journey, remember where you started so that you can push all that much harder to where you want to be โค

Screen Shot 2016-07-13 at 5.40.25 PM
I have changed a TON in 4 years! I use to be a person who would try every fad diet out there, anything that promised to help you lose weight. I would lose 2-3 pounds then get frustrated because I wasn’t losing the weight fast enough which resulted in me gaining those couple of pounds back plus several more. I have finally found a program that works….something that focuses on fitness, nutrition and ACCOUNTABILITY!

Weight Loss: Where Do You Cross The Line?

IMG_3452

OK, OK, OK…..I normally don’t post things like this, in fact I don’t think I ever have and I know that I am opening up a can of worms by posting this. Having said that, I have always promised to be real and honest with my followers and this new FDA approved weight loss method has me lost, confused and completely angered.

The device that I’m referring to is the AspireAssist device. It is a device that allows a tube to be inserted into your stomach that is connected to a‘port’ on the outside of your stomach area. Basically once you are done eating an external pump is attached to the port which allows the undigested food to be removed from your stomach and emptied into the toilet. I’m sorry…what?!

I completely understand that losing weight is difficult and for some seem impossible. Food addiction is by far (in my opinion) the hardest to overcome. We need food to survive, we have emotional ties to it, we celebrate over it, there are times that it’s our best friend. However…in my opinion….this is NOT healthy!

There is a vast amount of reasons why a person may be overweight/underweight. I don’t understand why it’s easier to create a device that has been referred to ‘assisted bulimia’ instead of creating healthier options to the public to PREVENT obesity. Our society has become a reactive one when we should be PROACTIVE. It’s time for us to take responsibility for our own health and stop trying to make excuses or find a ‘magic’…something to get us to our results.

It takes exercise, focusing on nutrition, hard work, support, and motivation. We need to get to the root of what is really going on with a person and help them to stop abusing food. The ‘magic’ whatever….pill, wrap, surgical procedure and now this pump is a bandaid. The true fix is learning balance. How to manage stress, work, family responsibilities, etc.

Lastly, I have seen so many morbidly obese people in our virtual fitness/accountability groups getting up, working out and doing what they can to take control over their life. They are doing it the healthy way, one that will build their self worth, their confidence which will change their mindset.

What’s your take on this?? I’m curious as to what your stance is.

Yoga for Tight Hips

Morning Everyone!! I don’t know about you but one of my favorite things about yoga is that it allows you to stretch and open up those parts of your body that are just too darn tight! I always find my hips being tight and not having the range of motion that I would like them to have. I decided to incorporate yoga moves into my morning routine and even throughout the day to open this area. Since doing so, I have noticed that my kicks are higher but most importantly, my hips aren’t sore like they use to be after my workouts.

Below are several moves that I make sure to do on a daily basis. Give it a try and I encourage you as always to leave a comment and let me know if this was helpful ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a great Friday everyone!

Morning Yoga

I have been incorporating yoga into my morning routine and I have to say…I’m absolutely in love! Not only does it help with my back and neck tension but it also allows me to wake my body up gently. In the past 30 days I have become more focused, centered and have really learned how to listen to my body. Because of this, I have decided to make February all about Yoga!

Each day I will be sharing a yoga sequence or pose that I have found helpful. I am not a yoga expert or instructor. Everything that I share I have researched and tried on myself. When practicing yoga, the important thing to remember is to listen to YOUR body! What is comfortable for one person may not be for another…so pay attention and ig you feel pain of any kind, STOP!

The following routine is the start of my daily morning sequence. It allows the blood to gently wake my muscles without pushing them too far, I’m able to open my lungs up slowly by focusing on breathing deeply through the nose and start my day by being centered and calm.

As always, I encourage you to leave me a comment by sharing your experiences with yoga, why you love it (or hate it ๐Ÿ™‚ ) or even share your favorite pose.

Until next time…

Jennifer
