mike & i have been really serious about getting in shape lately...
>we started rev abs over a month ago & we're loving it! i NEVER thought i'd enjoy working out, but once i got over working all the lactic acid out of my muscles & being achy all day... i started feeling sooo good!
>we did a 2 week juice fast a few weeks ago.
>we cut out processed sugar (with a little splurge here & there).
>we cut out coffee (we had only been drinking decaf for years, but we just cut it out all together). I'M LOVING HOT TEA!!!
>& my favorite new thing... we're counting calories! it may sound daunting, but it's actually quite enjoyable for me. i love keeping track of what i'm eating & when i workout i get to add calories... so it's like a reward for working out. ;) we use this amazing app. it does all the work for us!!! you can tell it how much weight you want to lose, if you want to maintain your weight or gain weight & when you want to accomplish it by & it will calculate how many calories you should eat everyday to reach your goal. so great!
-i would say one thing about counting calories... you have to make sure you're eating good whole foods. just because something is low in calories doesn't mean it's good for you. also, if you have a bunch of calories left at the end of the day don't eat something just because you can. & don't eat something bad for you just because you have enough calories. ;)
what are some of your favorite health/weight loss/workout helpers??
