As some of you may or may not know I’ve recently started a new job. With this new job I find that I am out a lot more, travelling, all sorts of wonderful things, but because I’m not sitting at a job I’ve found my diet starting to slip.
Change is scary and hard, but we all do need to jump in and take risks sometimes. I’m of course talking about any kind of change, job, relationships, fitness,etc, it’s always going to be scary and it’s always going to take an adjustment period.
The type of personality I am needs to feel prepared in order to do well. My new goal this week is to find that balance between work and health again. Both are important, I can’t let one slip in order to do well at the other.
After this week I’ll be starting phase 2 of the Jamie Eason program again, I really want to get it right, so I’ll be taking this week to work on my work-fitness balance.
First off you look stunning. And congrats on the weight loss/ getting fit. Im currently trying to do the same. I'm 5'8" and 157. I gym 5X a week with 30 minutes on the elliptical and then thirty of weights (either arms/chest/back, legs, abs, etc.). Do you have any tips to help me achieve what you have? I'm kinda stubbling in the dark hoping what I'm doing will work. Thanks!! Kat:)
Hi there, Sounds like you’re doing all the right things. I always do my cardio after my resistance training only cause I find it works better for me that way. But keep it up and remember to eat clean which sums up basically to avoiding processed foods and refined sugars.
So today I realized is exactly six months since I started my awesome healthy lifestyle. Got me feeling insanely proud. I will definitley be sharing a recap of progress photos on the weekend and working out extra hard for the rest of the week to celebrate.
Can’t wait for my 1 year mark, where I’ll be celebrating what I’m calling my re-birthday by throwing a re-birthday party for myself. haha.
I always think of the Mad Hatter when I say re-birthday, but no it’s not the same as a merry un-birthday, it’s my re-birthday. The day I decided to take control of my life and become the person I always saw myself as in my head, the day I was re-born.
Just wanted to share some input from another follwer in responce to my ‘control freak’ post:
Just read your control freak article, I liked it. Under your tips to control freak. I would add some alternative tips though. After every few days of cutting, eat slightly above your daily calorie requirement as a way to get your body to trust you. over time you will be losing weight but you body will still be trusting you. weight lifting helps a lot too. Then you can afford to not be so strict with eating every 3 hours.
Hey there! I would love to see some progress photos of you! great blog btw!! really nice inspiration for other girls! =) And if you like big muscles on guys, check my blog out and please follow it! and i would love to get some feedback from a girls perspective on my photos! =) Have a great day!
