CRAZY CHALLENGE!

 

Hey guys!

It is the last week of the month! What what! I cannot believe this. How in the world did this summer fly by so fast. It makes me so sad! But then again…I would way rather be having a blast and getting tons of stuff done than be bored to death, watching the clock tick. Ya feels?

So remember on Instagram when I showed you the beauty and the torture of the #UpDownPlankJack!? If you don’t, then imagine me doing and Up Up Down Down while Plank Jacking. Yup. It was pretty insane.

I thought, why not do a challenge video and stick some of these guys in there! (Yes, don’t you love me? I’m just brilliant like that.) [Continue reading…]

1. You’re not eating enough

You read that right. You may not be eating enough and therefore you’re not losing weight. Let me explain. The mentality of eating less to lose weight makes sense, but it’s actually one of the WORST things you can do! Depriving yourself increases the chances of binging later on in the day and you’ll end up eating MORE than you normally would! Not to mention, it totally messes up your metabolism! You’ll have no energy! Your body will go into starvation mode and it will hold on to the weight that you’re currently at because it thinks that it is dying. Over time you’ll find it harder and harder to lose weight or make progress in the gym. Restricting also tends to cause a continuous cycle of under and over eating, which just isn’t healthy. Instead, eat nourishing meals and snacks spaced out during the day. Give your body what it needs to continue to make progress. And also remember, being healthy is a LIFESTYLE. Your current diet needs to be something you can maintain your whole life. Please try not go under 1200 calories a day. But always consult with your doctor or dietitian. [Continue reading…]
