Self Care and self love

Why do I bring this up when my page is about fitness?

If you don’t have your mindset right there is no way you can start a lifestyle change. That is exactly the way your mind should think when you go to lose weight. Don’t think of this as a new “diet” because it is not. It is a change of lifestyle because you need to be dedicated to this change.

So let’s start a new journey together:

First, grab a journal and right in it daily. When you wake up right good positive affirmations. At the end of the day write what happened that day. What was a take away from the day was it positive? Keep doing this daily for a week. If you miss a day continue this next week before adding in more.

Second, practice yoga in the mornings and evenings. This is going to allow your body to wake up and be ready for the day. The evening flow will help you relax your body from the day. You only need 15-20 minutes for this flow. Do this the next week once you have the journaling down.

Third, have a food diary. Everything you eat in a day, how did that make you feel after eating it. (No guilt trips) How did your body react to that food (did you bloat, get a headache, ect.) This is where you will learn about your body. Nutrition is a science experiment it is not a one set plan for everyone. Do this after you have the first two down for a week each.

Fourth, have your daily fiber, water, and vitamin intake on point. Go buy a gallon water bottle to keep yourself on track. Make sure to buy fiber that has soluble and insoluble fiber (this means it will not all dissolve when you mix it). My go to brand is Regufit https://bit.ly/3tQj3zq use code: RBFJULIE for a discount. (I only support products I use on a daily bases so my followers trust me.)

Last, be happy and enjoy your day!

TOP 10 FITNESS QUESTIONS ANSWERED!

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I WORKOUT?

⚫ Everyone is different there is not right or wrong answer here. I would say for the first two weeks start out with 3 days. See how your body feels. The next two weeks do 4 days a week (if your schedule allows for it).

HOW LONG SHOULD I WORKOUT?

⚫ If you only have 10-15 minutes that is better than nothing. Try to workout in the morning for 10-15 minutes and evening for 10-15 minutes. Slowly work up to a routine of 30-45 minute workout or keep it split.

HOW DO YOU CREATE LEAN MUSCLES?

⚫ The process it take to become lean is an over time process. How dedicated are you? Do you know when to eat and what your body needs after a workout? This is where you will create your leanness. (Weight training is involved in this.)

DO I HAVE TO LIFT HEAVY?

⚫ First let me ask what is heavy to you? Have you ever lifted heavy? So you want to slowly go up in weight and before you know it you are lifting heavier than you thought you would.

WHAT TRAINING SHOULD I DO TO LOSE WEIGHT?

⚫ Everyone is different so we have to figure out what is best for your body and what it reacts too. So that might be CrossFit, or cardio with weight training, or just full body workouts with no weights yet.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I TAKE A DAY OFF?

⚫ Your body will tell you but if you are working your body part once a week then you don’t need to work that part again till next week. (Unless you have a different goal that we can talk about.) Your body should be sore but not too sore so make sure you are getting what your body is needing before and after a workout.

WHAT ABOUT STRETCHING?

⚫ People are different with this one. Some feel they need to stretch before and others swear by only after. I do mine after working out. I did static stretching which is holding for 5 minutes and also active stretching which is going in and out of a stretch to gain movement.

WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT SORENESS?

⚫ The best thing to do is eat what your body needs before and after a workout this is going to help with the soreness.

HOW LONG TILL I SEE RESULTS?

⚫ This is different for everyone. Did you stick to a lifestyle change? Eating clean and working out daily you will see results within a few weeks. Be sure to take before and after photos to help see your progress and throw away that scale!

WHAT IS THE BEST DIET?

⚫ There is no best diet out there. There is a best lifestyle change for you! That means figuring out what your body likes and doesn’t like. Knowing this takes time is in scientific! So when you get a nutritionist and they keep testing things don’t worry they are doing their job. Once you have it figure out that should be the track you stay on. Don’t worry about the fad diets!!
