There will be days when you are tempted to quit your workout and healthy eating all together. What you have to have in mind is that you’re on a journey where you’ll face a few setbacks along the way. Maybe you’re at that point right now. But don’t throw in the towel. Use it to wipe off your sweat and keep going. Resolve to reach your goal no matter what. Don’t give give up. You have came such a long way. Setbacks are a part of weight loss journey. What you have to do is dust yourself off and get back in the saddle!
It is true that weight loss is a slow process, but quitting every time it gets difficult or when you experience a setback won’t speed it up.
If you want to lose weight, you have to do it for you. Not for any other reason. Self-motivation is the key to weight loss as well as keeping those lost pounds at bay. Ask yourself why are you trying to shed pounds.

I’ve realized a long time ago we have so little we can control, so try to turn off negative thoughts in your mind and just go with the flow. Do more of what makes you happy and content. Have in mind that stress can seriously affect your health. Everyone needs a break from routine that’s why I believe God created a weekend.
I eat healthy for almost eight years now and I can honestly say that clean eating doesn’t cause me any stress. It is as tasty as you make it up to be. However, today I was just a girl who stood in front of the salad with avocado dressing, asking it to be a Kaiserschmarren (also known as “Emporers Trifle”) with vanilla cream. 😀
Sometimes I’m really tired of food having calories, don’t you? 🙂
Fit and healthy body is not given. It is earned. In the gym, on the track in the kitchen. With sweat, clean eating and persistence.
“Nutrition is not low fat. It’s not low calorie. It’s not being hungry and feeling deprived. It’s nourishing your body with real, whole foods so that you are consistently satisfied and energized to live life to the fullest.”
You can’t control everything in your life, but you can control what you put in your body. When you’re hungry have in mind that your body wants nutrients, not calories which junk food is.
“I’ve heard it said the hardest thing about beginning is starting. I don’t know about you, but I can spend a lifetime thinking about how to start something and never get it done. There’s always one more angle to think of, one more stone to over turn, one more typo in the book to find before actually launching any endeavor.”

When I started to workout some people said things like, “You look just fine or you’re skinny already!” Others claimed I will get bulky, not to mention that fitness is not for women. After three months of training I was pronounced too thin, too pale, seriously sick and even close to anorexic, just because my body reshaped. I didn’t take these words to heart because I knew what the truth is and why I decided to workout.
I believe it’s quite difficult not to care what other people say. Some people just learned how to care less. However, I don’t think there is a person out there who would not really care what others think. Everyone wants to be loved and accepted.
If there is one thing that I’ve learned over the years it’s that you cannot please everyone. No matter how hard you try, someone is always going to dislike you or something that you do. You can’t control what other people think, but you can control how you react and feel. I still care what other people think, we all do. But I don’t let other people’s opinions of me determine what I do and don’t do or what I can or can’t do.
I love being fit, strong and healthy… It is daily exercise and healthy eating that make me look better and feel better about myself, not to mention it feels so good to put your mind to something and achieve it.
So just be you. Be confident in your actions and keep pushing to get where you are headed – no matter what others say. Grab a mat, a towel and a bottle of water and get moving towards your goal. There will always be doubters and negative comments. Don’t let them drag you down or stop you for pursuing your dreams.
Have a lovely Sunday!
Change takes time:
1. Workout at least 3 times per week. Don’t just focus on cardio, strength training burns more calories than hours on the treadmill. Lifting weights or doing body weight exercises has afterburn effect which means that even when you’re not exercising, your body still burns calories. The best strenght exercises are compound moves — meaning numerous joints and muscles are engaged in each move.
2. Eat healthy. Remove fast and unhealthy foods from your daily menu, such as processed/packaged foods, candies, sweets, soda, sugar, sugary juices, unhealthy fats, refined grains, foods with added sugar, etc.) Prepare you own meals, because that way you know exactly which ingredients and how much of each you put into your food. Don’t binge and don’t starve.
3. Stop snacking between meals. One way to do that is to eat high-protein foods. They will help you feel full longer because protein takes more time to digest. Or try to consume foods that are are high in fiber, such as grapefruit, oatmeal or popcorn. Take your time to chew your food.
4. Take one step at a time. It doesn’t matter how slow you go, how many times you fail or stumble. What matters is that you don’t stop and always move forward.
Change takes time. Focus on your healthy habits and strive to improve 1 percent each day. You can simply put in another rep or one more glass of water rahter than soda.
