So, after Christmas and our December trip to Madeira, I stepped on the scales thinking I'd probably be around 64-65kg... I actually weighed 66kg
My plan this year is to nail my reverse diet, to get my calories nice and high again, whilst putting on little body fat (well, less than I have done before anyway) and gain some more muscle!
To do this I want to be in a place where I feel happy with myself and my body, in order to accept the fact I'm going to put on a bit of extra weight 🏼
So I decided to do a mini cut throughout January (perhaps February too depending on how I get on) to shed some extra body fat before officially starting my reverse diet. Also to see how my body responds to a strict amount of calories/macros, so I have a starting point.
After dieting for 2 weeks I weighed myself and I'd gone from 66kg to 63.5kg. This was super good progress for me, considering for months I'd felt like I'd really struggled to lose weight because my calories had been so low in the first place!
I know some of my initial weight loss will have been water weight, but I'm already feeling so much better and looking forward to seeing my progress by the end of January! 🏻
Happy Monday, y'all! Grateful for the day off for #MLKDay because I'm training twice today! First up, @brittany_dawn_fitness is going to kick my little because it's leg daaaay! 🤗 then at 5:30 I'm doing a #SoulCycle class 🏼♀️ double days are hard but worth it in the end. Let's slay our Monday & reset for a great week #fitfam !
Wow....this is #embarrassing but I'm posting because maybe it can encourage someone. I #binged over the holidays and even before the holidays. I paid zero attention to macros. I ate what I wanted in excess. I started feeling uncomfortable in my clothes again. I remember that feeling and it wasn't a good one. For the past couple months I've been on again off again with not binging and over eating. Once you get off track it's soooooooo hard to get back on. Well when I saw the scale start creeping up again I was like enough is enough. For the past week I've been consistent in hitting my #macros everyday and following the keto #diet which I LOVE, taking my #thrive every morning and my #balance every night. I've missed 2 days in the #gym over the last week too and I'm down 6lbs. I want to show you guys that it takes A LOT of discipline to stick to changing your eating habits but you HAVE TO COMMIT to your goal. I want to be flyyyyyy in Punta Cana so I'm committed!!!! I also want to continue to feel good and #confident in my own skin and clothing. It truly of a lifestyle and requires constant effort Set your #goals and write down your plan and you can do it!!!!!!!!! #iifym#keto#fitness#progress#progresspic#fitfam#fitchics#girlswholift#exercise#health

Couple #nutrition tips you can start incorporating right away as part of your daily routine:
1. Increase your water intake / Decrease soda and juice intake
2. Cut out processed food / Replace with more fruit and veggies
3. Incorporate more good fats into your meals (don't be afraid of it - it's the key to healthy and sustainable weight loss and will be you full after each meal) @paosanchez #motivationmonday #goalsAF #fitnessmotivation #makeorbreak #letsgetit #bikinicompetitor
