I know I have probably posted this video or this poem a thousand times on this blog already, but it will never stop being relevant.
Hi there :)
first off, did you mean 2-3 cheat days a week?
The first thing I can recommend is looking up a calorie calculator on google (I’d link you but I’m on my phone!) you can input all your information and it will tell you how many calories you should be eating. Eating too much will cause you to maintain/gain weight, and eating too little is not very healthy and can often make it difficult to lose weight.
I also recommend clean eating. By kicking out crappy processed food and eating cleaner, you can lose weight by doing this alone. I would check out tosco Reno, Pinterest, and different sources online to find new recipes. I’m not a dietitian, so I can’t tell you what to eat.. But this is what I do and what many others do to lose weight and carry on a healthy life style.
Lastly, find some exercise you like and start that. Remember to switch up your exercise to stop plateaus from happening. Make it fun!!!! If you are just beginning, I suggest watching some YouTube videos.. So many great workout videos on there, it’s free and might help you begin. You could also try group classes with a friend. I personally have found for myself that interval training and weight lifting are what works for me. I really like doing those things so it makes it enjoyable for me.
But most importantly, weight loss is different for everyone. What works for one person, may not always work for others. Make sure you do your research and do what works for you :) remember that “slow progress is still progress.” Don’t give up! You can do this, the process can be frustrating at times but it is worth it, I promise.
Good luck and feel free to message with more questions!
The course I took at my community college was great. I learned more than I ever could have during a weekend certification that’s for sure! We covered topics from nutrition (basic), working with special populations, anatomy, group fitness,and how to assess people. And a lot more. I loved it and learned so much from it. Even if I wasn’t going to be a personal trainer, I found it helpful information for life.. I have learned how to eat properly and how to exercise properly and safely. I hope this helps :) thanks for asking!
I miss waking up to watch the power rangers, spend my days listening to my ace of base tape, winning free pop from the inside of the cap (yeah whatever happened to that?), and not having so much technology in my life.
This man asked me to take a photo of him in downtown Toronto and post it on the Internet to help stop bullying, no matter what form it is in.
