You have worked hard all week so don’t ruin all the good work with bad choices during the weekend. Stay on track with healthy eating and daily exercise. Have a treat but don’t over indulge. Take at least one hour to do some kind of workout or physical activity. Don’t spend all day being a couch potato. Boredom may lead to snacking and munching. Keep yourself busy to stay on track!
Have a fun and healthy weekend!

“Health is a two-way street. You get exactly back what you put in. So if we eat well, exercise and treat our bodies with respect we can expect to see a return of a great physique, vitality, and good health. On the other hand abuse, poor nutrition and inactivity will lead to declined health, disease and most likely a bad physique. But fear not, the amazing thing about this awesome machine we’ve been given is that no matter how bad we’ve been to it, it has incredible powers of recovery. It heals quickly and adapts masterfully to any environment. Ultimately if we can draw a line under our past, focus on the now, and begin a new journey, you will be amazed at what your body has to offer once again.” – Ironfit

I hear many people talking about how difficult they find weekends at times. If they ‘fell’ off the wagon was in fact on the weekend. Their problems range from skipping workout, not drinking enough water, not staying on track with clean eating or drinking too much alcohol and indulging in sweets. If any of this sounds familiar to you, then try to plan out your food and exercise the way you do during the week, in order to stay focussed. Plan to get some exercise both Saturday and Sunday. It doesn’t have to last long or be difficult – aim to at least 30 minute walk each day. I believe this is totally achievable. Find some weight loss support (group) online or in your community. There’s a good chance someone else in the weight loss support group is struggling with the same thing.
For me, the key to staying on track with my clean eating is preparation and planning. This way you will more likely to stick with good and healthy choices. Remember that clean eating is a lifestyle, not a diet. Remind yourself daily why healthy eating is important.
Wishing you all a very rosy Sunday <3

Experiment to find your own diet.
“Some foods are obvious no-no’s: trans fats, processed food, white sugar, and excessive alcohol. Beyond that, though, everyone’s body is different, and just because a diet book is on the best-seller list doesn’t mean its program will work for you. “Some people thrive on a strictly high-protein diet, while others do great with fruits, grains, and beans,” says Jillian. “You’ve got to ask yourself questions: When I eat meat, do I feel sluggish or agitated? When I eat fruit, do I feel satiated? Sometimes it takes a lot of trial and error to find the right combination of foods. And as a trainer, I’ve learned that you also have to take human frailty into account. If you can’t bear the idea of giving up bread, choose whole grain and try to eat it with some protein.” The protein, she explains, will slow the breakdown of the bread so its carbs won’t cause your blood sugar to spike and then—as so often happens—crash, making you hungry again for something starchy.” – oprah.com

Weight-loss is all about making small changes that you can stick to it forever. It’s about moving your body, eating healthy food and maintaining a positive attitude, even when you experience a setback. It’s about focusing on a healthy lifestyle!

If you want a big change, you have to give things up that don’t lead you towards what you want. You have to go through a sometimes painful metamorphosis. A caterpillar does not turn in to a butterfly overnight and it’s not a process that happens without struggle. But once the caterpillar emerges from it’s cocoon…completely changed…it takes on a completely new form and life. We are no different. If you want to be better, then you have to be willing to give up the things that hold you down. Be willing to change. Be willing to become something greater than you ever thought possible, because you CAN!” ~ Marsha Tieken Christensen
Have a great day!

“A Commitment is what transforms your promise into your reality. It is the words that speak boldly of your intentions. It is actions that speak louder than words. It is making the time when there is none. It is making sacrifices that are sometimes uncomfortable. It is giving up what you want at the moment for what you really and truly want. It is relentlessly pursuing a goal and bringing it to fruition, regardless of how many times you stumble, fall or fail to see instant results. It is having the Faith that everything will work out if you continue to carry on and attack your goal. Commitment is the stuff that character is made of. It is the power to change your ways and create your destiny. It is the daily triumph of integrity over skepticism.” – John Defendis
