I kept working my ass off, even when no results were coming. To be honest, the scale really messed with me. Since I do strength training and body building, all my fat turned to muscle. Scale wise, I’ve only lost 25 lbs but clothing wise I went from a size 10 to a 0 😋 please, practice self love. Care about yourself and love yourself so much that you want to take care of your body and mind. Working out is NOT so I can look sexy, but to test my strength constantly and to grow daily. It teaches me patience and consistency. Working out taught me that pain makes me stronger and if I am struggling then I am doing something right. Keep on pushing babes 💕 . 📷 @megsmotivationn 👏 .

• @saltylifts Have you gone to the grocery store without a plan, or even worse, when you’re hungry!? You know how it goes.. you get home, $200 later and you end up with ton of crap you don’t need/want in your house if you’re trying to lose weight. ⠀ If you’re meal prepping this weekend & need a game plan for the grocery store, I got ya covered! ⠀ I typically buy the same 20-30 things every week cause 1) I’m lazy 2) I eat the same things most days and 3) it saves me time/energy. ⠀ 🐠PROTEIN: aim for mostly low fat options •skinless chicken breast •extra lean ground beef/turkey instead of 80/20. •1/2 cup egg whites + 1 egg instead of 3 whole eggs. •white fish, shrimp, tuna ⠀ 🥜HEALTHY FATS: eat these (in moderation), just keep an eye on portion sizes b/c they are higher calorie. •avocado •seeds, nuts •cheese •salmon ⠀ 🥔CARBS (starchy): eat these! a fistful w/ each meal is a good place to start. males eat 2 fists. •all kinds of potatoes •quinoa, white rice, brown rice, couscous, farro •beans, chickpeas •corn, peas, carrots ⠀ 🥗CARBS (fibrous): load up on these low calorie goodies to eat more food volume. •cauliflower, broccoli, squash, zucchini •cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, onions ⠀ 🥗FLAVORINGS/HEALTHY SWAPS: •Aim for spices/herbs/seasoning instead of marinades (they have tons of extra calories) •Don’t drink your cals: opt for water, tea, coffee, seltzer •Cooking spray, not olive oil (huge calorie saver) •Protein powder w/ minimal carbs/fats •PB2 in place of nut butter as a lower fat option ⠀ 🤭Tip: Most of what you need will be on the outside perimeter of the grocery store. The middle aisles are usually packed with things you don’t need! ⠀ 🌟 If you’re grocery shopping today, I hope this helped you! Bookmark to save for later :)
😩 STOP BEING A SLAVE TO THE SCALES 😩 ❌ Unrealistic Expectations ❌ Right your not going to lose 5-8 lbs of fat of week get that out of your head right now. People seem disappointed if they don’t lose this weekly. Unless your very obese this will not happen. You put on 14 lbs within 1-2 years then want to lose it in 2 weeks? Not happening. ✅ Realistic Expectations ✅ I have some clients who lose 1-2 lbs a week, some less, some more & some stay around the same. But whether the scales move alot or not much at all the difference in pictures & how their clothes fit is unbelievable! Big changes! Stop being a slave to scales & letting the number dictate your progress & happiness. Understand why your weight is fluctuating & learn about your body. Weight fluctuations can be anything from hydration, sleep, stress, salt intake recently, higher carb intake recently, time of month but it’s all water weight NOT fat! Or maybe your burning fat & building muscle at the same time so the scales don’t move much. Best way to measure progress? ✅ How you look (take pics) ✅ How your clothes fit Secondary measures which may or may not give you a good idea on progress ✅ Scales ✅ Measurements I get my clients to weigh daily to teach them about fluctuations to show that their weight may fluctuate & why, so they develop a good relationship with the scales. Hope this helps big time & eases your mind. Your doing awesome stick at it, be patient & consistent 💜 Credit Image - @cartergood
We’ve all been seduced by sexier, trendier fruits than the humble orange🍊, but science has discovered these standout benefits that deserve some serious kudos🎉… - Chronic conditions such as IBS, endometriosis, arthritis, diabetes, etc. all involve inflammation that has got out of control. So it’s good to know that orange juice reduces two important markers of inflammation – C-reactive protein and fibrinogen levels. 🙏 (Source: British Journal of Nutrition 2009) - Another study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (2010) found that orange juice “neutralizes the proinflammatory effect of a high-fat, high-carbohydrate meal.” 😃 Perfect if you’ve made a sketchy meal choice! - Natural compounds found in oranges - naringin and neohesperidin - can effectively reduce blood sugar levels, which leads to increased metabolism and weight loss. Yessss!👍 - Melatonin is our natural sleepy hormone, which we should produce plenty of each evening.🌇 But screen-time and artificial light block this and many of us have much less than we should for optimal sleep. 💤 The good news is, oranges contain melatonin, and a Thai study found they increased melatonin in the bloodstream by 47%. 💯(Source: Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry 2013) - How to: 🍊Eat ½ -1 orange half an hour before lunch or dinner for positive effects on your blood sugar, leading to weight loss 🍊Squeeze your own oranges as the processed juices are less nutritious and can be a high-fructose fail! 🍊Have an orange and cherry fruit salad in the evening to boost your natural melatonin levels (tart cherries also contain the magic sleepy hormone) 🍊#OBTip boost the effects of your orange juice by adding ½ tsp @OrganicBurst Turmeric🌈, or 1 tsp if you’re a turmeric pro! - What's your favourite way of having oranges?

What’s your favorite type of sandwich?! COMMENT BELOW🥪😃 . . I LOVE a good ham & Swiss Sammy so that’s what I prepped for the week🤩 & I’m pairing my sandwich with a salad to bring in veggies & volume to the meal to make it more fueling & satisfying 😋👌🙌 . . This meal prep is SUPER simple & this set up you could use to make a macro friendly lunch with any type of 4 oz deli meat, low fat cheese, 1/2 bag of greens, low calorie dressing, & I LOVE to use English muffins as sandwich bread because they’re tasty & easy to track at 25g of carbs per muffin👌 . . Be sure to SWIPE👈 to check out on my hack for making this meal feel bigger & last longer! . . I like to make 2 open face sandwiches by toasting both muffins & topping one w/ cold ham, lettuce, & mustard & 1 oven toasted with the ham & cheese😋👌 Splitting Up the sandwich makes it take longer to eat & the more bites a meal is can lead to feeling fuller longer🙌 . . Are you meal prepping today? What are you making? I know many are busy with Father’s Day activities so grabbing a meal like this for lunch for the week could be perfect if you’re limited with time &/or energy 😘 . . Think you have to spend hours in the kitchen in order to reach your fitness goals? I promise you don’t! Check out my website for my Nutrition Coaching options in which I show you how to reach your goals with EASY quick meals that are also balanced & tasty😋🙌Website Link in bio✨

People at the start of their weight loss journey often have an "all-or-nothing" mindset. - They completely eliminate sugar. - Or fat. - Or meat. - But the truth is: you don't have to eliminate ANYTHING on this list with a big ❌ next to it. - (Unless you have a medical condition) - Because there's no evidence that any one of those things causes weight gain or prevents weight loss. - But you know what DOES cause weight gain? - Eating too many calories. - Having said that... - Is it a good idea to eat less nutritious food like candy and white bread all day long? - Probably not. - But is it ok to eat the occasional donut if the rest of your diet consists of veggies, fruit, lean meat, healthy fats, and a calorie deficit? - Absolutely. - Maintain a calorie deficit, focus on nutritious food for 80-90% of your calories, and eat what you feel like for the remaining 10-20%. - That's the way to successful and sustainable long-term weight loss.

Had an awesome time watching the Courteeners yesterday! 🍺🕺 - - I make conscious efforts to push my social life (which always involves processed foods and alcohol) through my social media. - - I am trying to change people mindsets when it comes to food. We live in a society where there are good foods and bad foods. Where people have cheat meals. People who feel bad for eating processed foods. - - It’s all around us, we enjoy it. It should play a part in a healthy nutritional lifestyle. From a weight point of view, it is not the reason anyone is over weight. It contains calories, like all foods! - - I love getting people viewing what their eating in numbers. Specific to their body and goals, but in a non-obsessive way. This unshackles them from seeing foods as good and bad. From diets and quick fixes. It lays out the fundamentals (a calorie deficit) for them to put their own stamp on! - - If you would like to leave diets behind, once and for all, and be educated properly to still loose weight, whilst still eating the food you enjoy - Then drop me a message and let’s start you on your journey.
Huhu ihr Lieben 🤗 Es ist schon wieder Mittwoch und somit ein neuer #wednesdayweight Tag. "Ich esse eigentlich gar nicht so viel..." Schon mal gehört 💬 oder schon mal gedacht 💭? Ganz bestimmt. . Wie schon letzten Mittwoch angesprochen, ist die Basis um euer Gewicht reduzieren und kontrollieren zu können, erst einmal euer INDIVIDUELLER Gesamt-Verbrauch. . Allerdings sind, eine häufige Falle, in die viele treten, die Getränke 🍸🍾🍷🍻🥛 Warum? Weil sie erst einmal nicht als Essen, und somit auch nicht als Energielieferant bedacht und gewertet werden. Und da zusätzlich ja immer und überall zu hören ist wie wichtig es ist genügend zu trinken -was auch absolut richtig ist, gerade jetzt wo die Temperaturen🌡steigen❗- sind in diesem Bereich häufig viele Kalorien zu finden, die man getrost vermeiden kann! Als Beispiel hat 1 l Cola ca. 420 kcal, bei 1 l "gesundem" Orangensaft kommt man sogar auf ca. 450 kcal ‼ Damit ihr mal eine grobe Idee bekommt, wieviel das ist: Für den einen Liter Saft oder Cola könntet ihr 2,5 kg Tomaten oder 1 kg Tomaten 🍅 + 3 Eier 🥚 Essen❗Bei zwei Litern dieser Getränke seit ihr sogar schon bei einer Kalorienzufuhr die einer normalen Pizza 🍕 entspricht (hier kommt es natürlich darauf an wieviel und welcher Belag darauf ist)... Ich will damit nicht sagen, dass ihr gänzlich auf eure Cola etc. verzichten müsst, allerdings müsst ihr euch darüber klar werden, was ihr wollt und auf was ihr am ehesten verzichten könnt. Denn wie bei allem gilt auch hier: die Menge macht's! ... Ich selbst trinke nahezu kalorienfrei. Kaffee ☕, Wasser und Tee 🍵 sind meine Grundgetränke. Gelüstet es mich dann doch mal nach was Süßem, greife ich auf Zero-Produkte zurück. . In diesem Sinne PROST, habt einen tollen Mittwochabend 🙋 #sarahswednesdayweight . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #abnehmen#newyork#fit#weightlossmotivation#eatclean#trainhard#fitnessgirl#beyoutiful#fitness#diät
