I used to be someone under the mindset of “more is better”. More reps, more sets, more weight, more cardio, more dietary restriction….it’s all got to help right? Unfortunately, I could not have been more wrong as I didn’t see the results I wanted, and instead simply found myself exhausted. So I started focusing on rest, which is one of the most important parts of the program.

I get asked a lot about emotional eating – and to be totally honest, it’s something I have struggled a lot with too. I am nowhere near perfect and I still struggle with it from time to time, but I want to help share my experiences and the tools I use that help me get out of that vicious cycle of feeling bad about myself, which leads to emotional eating, which leads to me feeling worse about myself, and repeat.

Dieting is hard! Like really hard. It hard being hungry and not knowing if you are eating the right things. Then trying to figure out how to make a new found diet a lifestyle that doesn’t seem so depriving, is even harder. I’ve done all the 21 day fixes, smoothie cleanses and weight loss gimmicks.aaa
Some days simply having too many thoughts and too many things on my to-do list paralyzes me. You’ve probably seen the meme, “I’ve got 99 problems but I’m going to take a nap and ignore them all.” Yep, this is me more times than I’d like to admit, simply because I just don’t know what my next step should be.
Do not let the title scare you! I am not here to tell you to do 100 crunches until your motivation kicks back in. Instead, I want to talk to you about what to do when you lose your motivation to workout and eat healthy; and I want to share you with you some tools that I use that help keep me going during the rough patches.
When it comes to weight loss, weight gain, and weight maintenance, your metabolism is everything.
