For years and years, I have struggled with my weight, my health, and working out. I will be honest about some things, I am not disciplined in my eating or exercising. I never was really into sports growing up, and I have just always hated working out. And, I love cheese, ice cream, and basically anything gummy or sweet. And, for years, I have just eaten whatever I wanted whenever I want to, and it has really caught up to me.
So, today I am sharing some steps that I have taken over the years that has helped me begin to get some self-control in these things.
- Like I said, I just eat and eat, and overeat, and sometimes even stress eat, but it’s hard to eat healthy, when all of the junk food is easily accessible. But, one thing that has helped me is having fruit that needs to be cut or peeled ready to go, so it is easy to grab and go. One of my favorite foods is apple and peanut butter, and almond butter is a nice alternative too. It also helps to have veggies cut up, and add a little bit of sauce, like ranch or something, but not too much. Carrots and ranch are good, or cucumbers or peppers.
- One of the hardest diet plans for me, but the most rewarding diet plan was Whole 30. My family did Whole 30 last summer, and while it was difficult, and I got the worst headaches from withdrawing from dairy, gluten, and sugar. It was so worth it. If you don’t know what Whole 30 is, it is basically a 30 day diet that eliminates gluten, dairy, and sugar and focuses on clean eating.
- Kayla Itsines BBG Workout Program was another program that helped me, while I was on it. It is a 12 week program of 7 exercises! To be honest, when I first started, I couldn’t do half the exercises, and I had to (whats the word) them. But, as I continued on in the program, I felt so good, and I was kind of always waiting for my time to workout, even if I didn’t always enjoy or feel like doing it.
- Another workout program that I recently started getting into was the couch to 5K program. If you are interested in checking out, just download the couch to 5K app and go!
