Reasons why you should NOT give up on accomplishing your weight loss goals

It is normal to experience set-backs & not feel motivated about going to the gym or eating healthy.  When you experience days when you have no drive and feel stressed-out always remember how you felt when you initially started your weight loss journey.  Think about how well your body will feel after a vigorous training session and not giving into excuses.  Always remember why you wanted to make the commitment to feel healthy in the first place.

Always switch up what you are eating from time to time- so you do not get bored & start eating more.  Also, try changing up your work-out routine, as well.  Remember that there is so much support (Instagram, Facebook, Magazines) for weight loss- if you really want it.  Remind yourself that you are not alone.  It is such a terrific feeling when your clothes start to fit better again!  Hoping your day is as special as YOU! Weight Cliquers- Don’t Give Up!!! XO.

Reviewing Diet to Go Meals

Last year, Diet to Go selected my Blog out of thousands to be part of the top 100 Bloggers of the year to inspire others to lose weight.  Diet to Go has sent me 4 days of free meals which I will review on this Blog.  I am excited to promote healthy eating! After sampling these quality meals- I realized that these 1200 calorie meals are fresh & tasty!  In addition to this- I did not gain weight.  My weight stayed balanced during the 4 day trial period of sampling these amazing packaged meals.

My favorite breakfast was Apple Pancakes, Turkey Sausage and Light Syrup.  The ingredients to this AM substitution meal is perfect & so delicious.  The best lunch that I ate was Tomato Pesto Meltover and Spiced Apples.  The Tomato Pesto Meltover is moist, has the best seasonings, is tender and so very yummy.  For dinner- I enjoyed Italian Chicken, Cous Cous Pilaf and Roasted Green Beans which is simply the greatest!  What a sensational meal combo (protein, veggies & starch) & only 470 Calories.  Diet to Go provides outstanding and quality meals.  Give Diet to Go a try!  To be optimistic, healthy and happy- start by giving off positive energy!  When you change your thinking- you can change your life forever!  Have a fabulous day!

Have you been Working-out too much?

Be certain to take note that overtraining can often leave you tired and exhausted instead of energized and relaxed.  You may be going too far with your workouts… here are some tips!  When you have a high intensity training session- it is vital to rest 1 or 2 days a week.  If you are sore for a couple days- it can mean that you have gone too far and are workingout too hard.  Easing your way into exercise is a fabulous way to stay healthy.

If you are getting upset and irritable more than usual this could potentially be a sign that you may be over-exercising.. as well.  Sometimes, feeling well rested is vital than spending too much time at the gym.  Weight Cliquers- Do not over stress yourself.  Make sure that you choose the exercise machines that you love so at the end of the day- it did not feel like a chore.  Give your body the attention that it deserves!!  Enjoy!

Why you Should Not Compare Yourself to Others

Happy Spring!  Do you ever compare yourself to others at the gym?  Take a step back and be grateful with all that you have accomplished instead of putting yourself down.  Stay in the moment and be happy so you can do your best at the gym today.  Comparing yourself to others makes you less appreciative of the person you are & you are so much more powerful than getting down on yourself.

Remind that little voice inside yourself that sometimes it is hard not to compare and thinking negatively can be the worst feeling for you to move forward with training.  Do not knock yourself down!  Remind yourself that everyone has their own struggles.  Keep building and giving yourself the confidence you really deserve.  Be content with the person you are- everyday!

Why Positive Self-Talk can be Helpful to You!

When vigorously working out- do you ever feel that you need positive self talk so you do not quit?  During a high-intensity training session.. motivational self-talk can help you to be competitive.  It can be powerful to think or say out loud phrases like “don’t give up” or “keep pushing yourself.”  Have in mind when you are working out what goals you have so you can easily identify what you want to achieve.  That can be very helpful and beneficial for you.

Before an intense training session- realize your mind is so powerful and what you think during your work-out can greatly influence your performance.  You want to be strong during an effective work-out so keep up the amazing effort by staying positive and in the right frame of mind- before, during and after your aerobic session.  You are incredible and always believe that about yourself!
