Stop making your life so hard, fat loss is really not that hard!
I get so tired of people talking about all these diets and then months later you see them gain their weight back because THEY CAN'T LIVE LIFE eating that way!
Why do we do this to ourselves year after year? I say we because I did the same thing year after year until I educated myself on how actually fat loss occurs. Now I teach it in my #Macrosmanaged group coaching program opening Jan 31st Knowledge is power.
Aren't you tired of trying everything and nothing working? or nothing sticking long term?
This is exactly why I built Macros Managed to help women manage their own nutrition and understand their body so they can actually get results, understand why, and keep those results long term instead of doing the crazy diets that SUCK and have short term success with quick return!
If you are tired of the bull crap diets and year after year just trying all the things Then join me get on the waitlist...
Ending your year with purpose is so important if you haven't read that blog do that here because that blog was an important read also. But starting the new year with purpose I feel is so important.
First I CHALLENGE YOU, to go look in the mirror right now…
I’ll wait.. Are You there?
What do you see, be kind first off
What do you want to see?
Let’s get clinical - what you see now is a direct reflection of your choices, thoughts and habits in the past.
BUT Good thing is we can change it right now!
Do you believe that? Or do you believe you are just this way, you can’t change.
Because what you believe is true...
Do you want to change, I mean you want the outcome of the change but do you want to put in the work to change? My coaching def helps make it easier to stick to but it’s still not easy and it takes you believing you can change.
Maybe you find yourself wanting to change but after a couple weeks you feel “this is too...
New starts, new habits, new beginnings are great, don’t get me wrong they are actually great motivation to get something going.
But what if you end the year on purpose, what if you didn’t wait until Jan 1 to make choices to become your best self? It's funny because this post wasn't even planned, God showed me this ending the year on purpose through my bible plan this morning.
I can remember year after year I would start a new diet at the beginning of the year no more of this, no more of that… it would last a while then I would lose motivation and quit back to the old easy me making decisions that I didn't necessarily love about me.
It's crazy how your brain can do that you have one part that wants you to make better decisions and then a part that wants to keep you safe so it takes you down that old path that you always do. Good thing is, you can retrain the part that says this is your normal but how?
# 1 would be START TODAY not on monday not on Jan 1st but today....
Get a pen and paper because we are about to do some Mindset homework! Take a moment write it down 1-10 1 Not so much 10 you for sure believe you can change!
You can change, it starts with your mindset around change!
Let's dive in
What are your GOALS be specific not just lose weight be healthy and what behaviors are you wanting to change -write this down
WHY do you want to reach these goals, what will it change or provide for you in your life, what would happen if you didn't reach these goals? -write it down
How can you make SMALL daily goals? (this will really help by making it easier to get small wins, therefore, keep you going) Instead of only eating clean foods, not sticking to that feeling like a failure, and saying I am not meant for this, why can’t I change. → I will eat 1 whole nutrient-dense meal a day. Small reachable wins!
Notice what actions you have been not doing. What are the TRIGGERS that get in the way? Notice your...
2 things you probably don't know about me…
I never wanted any kids and I love the taste of beer
Haha super random but I have 7 kids + a grandson and never wanted any! I had a son at 17. Then I met my current husband 4 years later. He had 5 kids and they truly needed a mom to give them stability and life they could never have had otherwise, I was that mom. Oh and he was that dad because my sperm donor skipped out. I knew God had a plan that def was not my plan. Then we decided we needed to have one together lol cause 6 wasn’t enough!
Being a stepmom is F’n hard you do all the things like literally I raised them ALL never missed a ball game, never missed a dance competition, filled out all their enrollment forms and if you're a mom you know that shit took forever for 7 kids, ps they all lived with us (they still do but 1) I took on the duties of the MOM from day 1, but somehow still felt like a stepmom, if you know, you know it's hard to explain the feeling of hurt...
For the busy on the go momma whether it's running crazy, forgetting a meal, whatever your life throws at you, you can still put in messy action and meet your macro goals while having to stop at the gas station or even the ballpark concession stand!
I used to have such a fixed mindset that if I couldn't cook at home then I would just start over Monday, I literally had no idea what to get at the gas station if we had to stop there, so I would just say F it and get a bag of chips and a coke and those fixed thoughts led to my actions of doing nothing and giving up until Monday when everything was perfect at home with my meals. I was getting nowhere with that plan and when I shifted my mindset to this isn’t perfect but I still can make choices that serve me with thought and effort, then I started to think outside of the box and really change my body with a MINDSET shift WHAT!!!
I know I don’t want to eat gas station food, or fast food, or even...
Tracking Macros is a great tool to learn what foods are, become aware of how much you're actually eating, how to balance meals, reach weight loss goals, prime your metabolism.
It likely will be hard at 1st but with a growth mindset, you understand you can get better with knowledge and effort and this will help you reach goals you have never reached before and actually keep that weight off instead of losing and gaining that same 20lbs year after year.
I teach macro tracking to my clients. For everyone it may look different the most accurate you can be will yield the best results BUT you don't have to start there you can start slow learning and grow into tracking all 3 macros. Use my slides to guide you to success!
just track your food your eating get comfy doing that
Assess where you are now
figure maintenance cals 10x BW x 1.2-1.6 activity factor
how far was your initial tracking from maintenance cals?
under go here → increase 50-100cals every 2-4 weeks
I had guilt over literally every food choice I made…
I ate FUN foods until my stomach hurt like they were scarce in the world like I could never eat them again!
Then the worst part I thought I could out cardio my food choices [eye roll] crazy right?
Really its not crazy so so many of us do the same things maybe in different ways, We think oh we ate a cookie, or Halloween candy so if I go run or jump on the elliptical [the fave cardio machine of most women] for 30 min or more it justifies our food choices.
But year after year my body looked the same or worse :/ from trying to out cardio my nutrition… How about you? Have you put in the work in the gym month after month year after year and still nothing changes?
Girl, I feel you I was there and I talk to women every day that have been in the same position!
So how do we change this? Well, I have a solution for you! I built my coaching program to give you the freedom of eating fun foods without guilt, teaching you...
