Break up with ultra-processed food
Break up with ultra-processed food. It’s a relationship that is selfish and only cares about itself. Ultra-processed food does not care about you and its only objective is to make you eat more of it so they can make money. It’s highly engineered to taste, look, and feel appealing. The food is so good that you almost always overeat calories just by consuming ultra-processed foods. Take a look at the ingredient label next time. It’s usually a few servings per package, but the s
Exercise and eat healthy because you love yourself, not to punish yourself
Exercise and eat healthy because you love yourself, not to punish yourself. I have been guilty of exercising extra hard because I binged the day before on pizza and cake. I went into my routine telling myself I have to exercise extra hard today because of all the food I ate yesterday. I’ve even had thoughts while I was eating the food, that I need to exercise twice as hard to burn off all the calories. I was punishing myself for eating food, and that’s not a healthy mindset.
Be weary of anything that promises fast or quick
Be weary of anything that promises fast or quick. Losing weight and getting healthy is not a quick, easy process. It takes a long time and probably twice as long as you think. If something says fast, quick, or easy then it is probably very restrictive dieting or high intense exercises. Neither one of these are sustainable for any length of time.

I never weigh myself anymore
I never weigh myself anymore besides the yearly physical at the doctor’s office.

I have always put more concern into how my clothes fit anyways, so throwing the scale in the trash wasn’t that big of a deal to me. Your weight will fluctuate daily due to many different factors. Including but n
Give yourself permission to quit...
Give yourself permission to quit but promise yourself that you will show up and do the warmup! That sounds contradictory but hear me out. If you are having a hard time exercising and getting yourself to workout then you are not alone, the mere act of going to workout is the hardest part. It’s incredibly easy to have excuses of why you won’t work out today. It’s so much easier to talk yourself out of it rather than getting it done. So, the next time you are having an interna
You can eat healthy food on a budget
At first glance eating healthy food sounds expensive with all the supplements and organic food that you must buy. You don’t need to buy any supplements at all, if you eat a wide variety of whole natural foods then you should be fine. Of course, there are scenarios where you do have a deficiency and you need to supplement but that is a different topic all together. For most people, a wide variety of whole nutritious minimally processed foods will supply your body with all the
