Diet pills. Cleanses. Sensa….It’s January!
If I could count how many times I’ve seen a commercial for all of the above business’ and products, I’d be a millionaire. Same goes for all of the people in their ads who gain their weight back.. and then some.
Reason being, these are quick fixes, and not a realistic way of learning how to eat right.
Are you going to have packaged food delivered to your door for the rest of your life? Sprinkle Sensa on top of everything you eat? Count points and go to weekly meetings so your coach can keep track of your progress and accountability?
If it works for you, then great! But the only person who should be in charge of your life is YOU.
Make your own healthy meals. Move more. Hold YOURSELF accountable. But of course, if needed, ask for help along the way!
Talk to a trainer at your gym, research different types of workout studios in your area, or schedule an appointment with a nutritionist so they can educate you on what you should be eating.
sugar filled yogurts vs. Greek yogurt
white flour vs. wheat flour
saturated fats vs. monounsaturated fats
…just to name a few.
Use these options as a resource, not a crutch, and learn as much as you can about clean eating, proper form while working out, and realizing that any choice you make in life is YOUR choice alone.
This is why I love to teach fitness classes.
Everyone has their own reason for showing up to a spin, boot camp, or body pump class, and those reasons are what bring us all together.
I created an upbeat playlist for this week to keep the energy high, and body working hard.
Remember that our mind is what often holds us back from getting to where we want to be.
You don’t need a magic pill (which do not exist), or pre portioned packaged foods delivered to your door throughout the week. You just need to educate yourself, experiment with new foods, read ingredients list, and have the confidence that you WILL succeed.
YOU can do it!
