You deserve to feel and look great. You owe it to yourself.
I don't know if anyone has told you this - but you deserve it all.
It's my belief that people go through their lives 'believing' that they're stuck in this pattern because they're not good enough or don't deserve the kind of life they want.
And that's patently false. You deserve everything you want.
Another belief I have is: if you don't have your health, you don't have anything. It's no use being the richest person in the cemetary.
Or, more importantly, it's no use being able to love your kids but being too tired to play with them.
But how do you change what's going on?
Obviously, dieting down and becoming more active. We all know 'dis.
But that's where we typically fail --> executing on a plan.
And when we fail --> we think we're a failure.
But those thoughts are wrong. We're not failures. We just need to learn how to fail better.
And that's where this program comes in.
Typically, we want to average around 0.5-1.0% of bodyweight per week in weight loss. There are a lot of factors that go into this and it also is determined by what's the smartest plan for you at the time. But I consistently see people lose between 5-8% during the holidays, when the dieting is the roughest and there are so many reasons why they shouldn't be doing that well.
Want to lose more? It's all about what you're willing to do to and withstand. There are tradeoffs with everything.
All too commonly, even with myself, I see people eat "healthy" and then have a little extra snack or treat at the end of the day or meal. Because this treat or snack was the last thing that you ate and out of the ordinary, it typically is associated with the weight gain - this is called the recency bias.
However, the snack wasn't the issue - the excess calories is the issue. And the excess calories can come from anything. So, if we prioritize foods that we enjoy and budget our total calories, we can plan our desserts so we can enjoy them without guilt and then budget all of our other foods so we are fueling ourselves at the right caloric amount.
The idea came to me after thinking about the book, "Profit First" by Mike Michalowicz
You can and you can workout with any routine you'd like: Zumba, weightlifting, CrossFit, at home workouts, running, etc.
You also don't have to workout. You can just focus on getting in steps each day.
I can provide you workouts, you can follow your own routine, it's up to you.
Working out is the not the vehicle that's going to make you lose weight. It's an important part of getting into better health, and it looks different for everyone.
