Whether or not you are trying to lean up or simply see the scale budge, protein is going to be your B.F.F. If you are having trouble dropping pounds, chances are that you are not eating enough protein on a regular basis which can hinder your weightloss journey more than you might realize.
I was first introduced to the world of juicing after watching the documentary called Sick, Fat, & Nearly Dead. My husband and I were so impressed with what we saw and learned that we went out and bought our first juicer 4 years ago-something barely $100 from Target. It did not last long before it eventually broke and our juicing journey ended, but boy did we have a blast when we tried it!
I get a ton of questions revolving around protein powder and which one is best. Each and every protein out there is so different and the key is to finding the best one to suit your needs.. and your taste buds! Let’s learn more about protein powders, the types, and why we need protein in our lives.
After the birth of my son, my hair started falling out. At first, it was no big deal. I mean, as a curly haired girl, I’ve been known to clog a few drains in my day.
BUT… this was different… the hair was falling out at the root and when I ran my fingers through my hair while washing, I easily pulled out clumps of hair. It was a nightmare but I knew there was a way to reverse it.
It is no secret that a new baby can derail your old routines. This is totally true when it comes to working out! I remember before my son was born, I would make it a priority to wake up at 5:30am before work at the clinic and drive to the gym. After he was born, this just wasn’t feasible anymore because I had quit my job to stay at home with him. Let’s face it-while you totally can take a newborn to the gym, it is frankly pretty tough to do.
Every workout has one thing in common: It has reps, sets, rest, and weight. Some workouts may differ from others in their acute variables (rest, set, reps, weight) and it can sometimes get a little confusing to understand WHY! Well, there is a reason to doing a specific number of each and it all had to do with your goals!
When it comes to weight loss, weight gain, and weight maintenance, your metabolism is everything. It absolutely runs the show behind the curtains and is ultimately responsible for your successes… and your failures. Your metabolism is your body’s way of surviving when life gets tough. Think back in the day when cavemen had to liveaaa
So, you wanna start eating “clean” eh? Well, you have come to the right place! However, before we begin, let me ask you this: what is your definition of clean, anyway? If I were to go around in a room filled with 20 people and ask them this very same question, I am sure allaaa
Ladies, if you are not doing push-ups then you really should learn! Push-ups are an amazing way to build upper body strength while targeting large muscle groups.
Various muscles in the upper body work together during a push-up. The main muscles targeted are:
• Pectoralis major
• Triceps brachii
• Serratus anterior
• Abdominal muscles
It seems like yesterday when I was staring into my mirror daily and constantly pointing out what was wrong with me:
“My thighs are too fat.”
“I hate my jiggle.”
“I wish I were a size 0”
These are some of the thoughts that ran through my mind as I stood there critiquing my body. In my teens, I struggled with an eating disorder, but overcame it after almost a year of binging and purging. I did not like what I was doing to my body or my self esteem. I never felt beautiful until I was skinny enough until I saw a certain number on the scale. Eventually, I moved past that, put some weight back on and just dealt with it.
