It’s OKAY to want to change your body if you don’t feel it’s currently in alignment with who you really are.
We all have visions for ourselves and no one should feel shame in wanting to better themselves.
THE KEY IS to LOVE your body INTO CHANGE, not HATE it into SUBMISSION.
Try these TINY nutrition + workout tweaks that NOURISH instead of DEPRIVE your body—allowing it the loving space to transition into a new version [if that’s your goal]. 👊🏼
Getting BACK TO THE BASICS here girls … it’s really not complicated!
You got this, girl.
🍑Lower your intake of high-fat animal protein, dairy, added sugars, processed foods and refined oils.
🍑MOVE at least 30 minutes a day focusing on LISS — low intensity steady state cardio [keeps you in the fat burning heart rate zone].
Power walking, slow jogging, treadmill incline walking, elliptical and steady cycling are all forms of LISS.
🍑Perform cardio AFTER strength/weight training NOT BEFORE! GLYCOGEN stores are burned first before the body turns to FAT for fuel. It usually takes about 30-45 minutes to blow through muscle glycogen (depending how hard you're working). Saving cardio for this point in your workout means you'll only be burning FAT!
🍑SLEEP 7 — 9 hours. Lack of sleep highly affects insulin and hunger hormones. 😴
🍑Reduce 🍺. Your body prioritizes burning alcohol FIRST to eliminate the #toxin, storing everything else you've consumed as fat.
🍑Taper off eating at least 2 hours before bed. 🛌
🍑Keep healthy #carb intake before 4 pm so they are fully processed before bed.
