Summer Is Coming!

With less than 60 days to summer my Facebook and Instagram feeds are full of weight loss ads, friends ‘shaping’ up and women worried about bikini season.

Let’s be real, I am not one of those people right now because of my current situation. However, I am concerned about maternity swimsuits for our upcoming lake trips. LOL!

With all of the hype about summer, I figured I’d share my best tips for starting (and keeping) a healthy lifestyle.

To create a habit of any kind, you truly need 21-30 days of doing. Whether this includes exercise, nutrition focus, or water intake, 21-30 solid days of doing this will create a lasting habit. This is why I recommend a program such as Autumn Calabrese’s 21 Day Fix. In just 21 days you create a habit of working out daily for 30 minutes, while altering your nutrition for your best results!

The second tip is water, water and oh yeah, more water! I reside in Arizona, where it’s a very dry heat and dehydration is an every day occurrence here. Did you know that lack of enough water causes headaches, fatigue and can lead to poor skin? Sure enough, lack of water can do more than just that! A quick calculation will you give you a desired amount of ounces per day. That calculation is your body weight, divided by two.

The final tip is all about my current favorite thing, NUTRITION! You can exercise all day long, you can drink an excess amount of water but, if you’re fueling your body with CRAP you won’t get awfully far. Additionally, eating the right food but the wrong portions can be harmful to your goals.

I hope this helps you kick off your summer goals and maintain them into fall! As always, I’m readily available to be YOUR coach! Even pregnant with twins, I’m still out here hustling to make sure my body is as prepared as possible.

Try It Tuesday – Shopping Aisles

Happy Tuesday!

As many of my followers know, I have been on a fitness journey for quite some time. I can attest that I have tried lots of different diets such as keto, paleo, NSNG, and so, so much more. Yet, with all of those diets, one thing remained consistent. Whatever I lost, I gained back almost immediately. Can you believe that? I can, and now I understand why! The diets I was trying were not sustainable for me. I was limiting and restricting myself so much, that every treat became a cheat for not just one meal but every meal.

I changed that consistent fluctuation of gain and loss with small color coded containers for portion. I changed my mindset by utilizing a program called Ultimate Portion Fix. Now, I had known about the containers previously and had been using them since Autumn Calabrese came out with them. Shes definitely my girl crush, FYI! But, this program was a game changer for me!

Ultimate Portion Fix isn’t just a one size fits all program. Oh no! This is a program that provides you the education you need in order to make smarter choice regarding portion control, grocery shopping and so much more! So, for this ‘try it’ Tuesday, I am encouraging you to give this a shot!

At the grocery store, do you often find yourself gravitating to the inner aisles? You too, huh, know that you are not alone! Food is quite literally, addictive! In an average year, we consume well over 100 lbs of sugar each year? This sugar is found almost every where, especially in processed foods, which you guessed it is in the inner aisles of our grocery stores!

Take a trip to the outer aisles of the grocery store, can you make a whole shopping trip out of these aisles? These include the produce, the meats, the dairy, frozen, and deli sections of your store. Can you plan a week’s worth of meals on these aisles alone?

I know I can, and I’d love to show you how too! If you’re interested in a FREE work shop on meal planning and grocery shopping, I run a free work shop every month! Let’s get together and focus your family on nutrition!
