It all started quite simple. Back in 2013- I quit fast food & soda. I started losing weight but my diet still wasn't good. In April 2014 I committed to working out just 25 minutes a day. I got one of those fit watches and realized my intense workouts only burned maybe 300 calories. I started looking more closely at my food intake. I cut out more and more processed foods, especially SUGAR. I increased my PROTEIN intake and consumed more produce. Then I slowly increased my physical activity, adding on hiking and mountain biking regularly. I lost 90+ lbs in a year and then I started weight lifting to shape my body. I continue to fine tune my diet and workouts. Being open to learning more and constantly improving. Never counted calories or macros but instead focused on micronutrients and satiation. I say I follow a more PALEO- inspired diet, intuitive eating, paired with intermittent fasting. I enjoy one cheat meal per week. I lift weights. Free weights, as heavy as I can with proper form. Also try to enjoy outdoor activities. Drink tons or water & try to improve sleep hygiene. Most importantly I try to stay committed to a healthy LIFESTYLE and positive MINDSET. If I can do it- anyone can! ❤️❤️❤️ I'm not here to sell meal plans and I do not offer online training. I do not have the qualifications to do so. I have no desire to do so! Really- keep trying to learn and improve your MIND. Knowledge is power. Keep working hard and improving as you go. You don't need all the answers out the gate. It's a learning process and I continue to learn as I go!
