Every time I tried to get into fitness and eat more healthily, it never lasted for very long. I always wanted to see results quickly and when I didn't, I found comfort in food. I'd go on crazy crash diets, deprive myself of everything I loved eating and make sure that I didn't eat more than the 1200 calories that myfitnesspal recommended ๐Ÿ™„ I ended up grumpy, upset and demotivated. I thought I was weak for not being able to stick to whatever fad diet I was on and told myself I didn't deserve the body that I wanted because I wasn't willing to diet for it. This mentality was so wrong but I'm really not surprised that I had it! The media is terrible for making us feel like we should be on ridiculous diets if we want to look and feel good. Magazines give us crazy diet plans to help us lose 1 stone in 1 week and then we wonder why we have a messed up relationship with food. Well do you know what got me the body I wanted? Pretty much by ignoring every bit of advice magazines and stupid diet plans had ever given me. I refused to cut it carbs, I didn't skip any meals, I didn't live on chicken breasts and I stayed well away from iceberg lettuce (this isn't necessary, I've just never been a fan ๐Ÿ˜‚). Every now and then the would creep into my head that maybe I was doing something wrong. Maybe I should have been counting calories and then I would see results more quickly. Maybe I should be cutting out carbs. Well I ignored those thoughts. I told myself to stop being silly and do you know what happened? This transformation happened.
Ignore the magazines girls. Ignore the fad diets and ignore anyone that tells you that you need to go to extreme measures to see the results you want. I want you to see this transformation so you know that none of that is necessary โค๏ธ

YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD ๐Ÿฅ˜
.
I got tagged in a 2 week diet programme the other day and it made me so mad! You can't lose drastic weight in 2 weeks like these guides promise they can, but you can eat good, nutritious food (and lots of it) and still make amazing progress ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป So I thought I would share some simple things that have helped me over the past year when it comes to food:
1๏ธโƒฃ Don't be afraid of food! You don't need to drastically diet to be fit and healthy
2๏ธโƒฃ Don't skip breakfast!! Especially if you workout in the morning, try and eat something at least 30 mins after to refuel your body ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
3๏ธโƒฃ Don't cut or massively limit yourself of one food group - for me that was carbs ๐Ÿ™ˆ
4๏ธโƒฃ Don't get sucked into detoxes or fad diets, eat fresh when you can and cook from scratch - then you know exactly what you're eating โ˜บ๏ธ
5๏ธโƒฃ Don't compare yourself to everyone else around you! You have to find what works for you ๐Ÿค—
6๏ธโƒฃ Treat yourself within moderation to help stop binging days โœ‹๐Ÿป
7๏ธโƒฃ ENJOY FOOD without worrying about the calories you're consuming. Once you get this down you're winning ๐Ÿ™ƒ
8๏ธโƒฃ Ditch the scales and go by how you feel and what you see when you look in the mirror!
.
Finding a right balance with food can be hard but once you have a healthy relationship with it, you'll find you're so much happier and healthier in the long run ๐Ÿ’›

I Went Vegetarian For a Month and Hereโ€™s What Happened ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿฅ’๐Ÿฅ— #vegetarianmonth Part II .
.

Going vegetarianย has been pretty smooth-sailing. Iโ€™ve eaten a lot of stir fry, protein pancakes, smoothies, and the odd treats that I've always enjoyed. I did my research before I made this decision to figure out where I could get important nutrients like iron, magnesium, and proteins. It turns out, beansย have been my saviour. What's great about beans is that they are so affordable, very versatile andย contain important nutrients like iron, fibre, magnesium vitamin B6, protein, potassium, and calcium. When I say versatile, I mean you can flavour chickpeas in as many different ways as you could chicken or vegetables (have you seen my watermelon-chickpeas salad or my selfmade hummus I've shared on insta stories?!), and they always taste good! Tip: burritos are just as good without the meat. Beans are also much less expensive than chicken and beef, so saving on groceries has been really nice.ย I can honestly say that I never thought I would be gushing about beans.๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผ .
.

Overall, Iโ€™ve really loved my vegetarian month. I havenโ€™t missed eating meat. A typical meal for me contains brown rice, black beans and/or red kidney beans, chickpeas, some type of leafy green, and a LOT of vegetables. This include spiralled zucchini, sweet potatoes, onion, garlic, broccoli, carrots, peppers, etc. Experimenting with spices has also been really fun (says a total cooking-nerd๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™ˆ). .
.

Becoming vegetarian - yes, I still stick to it - wasnโ€™t a huge jump for me, since I didnโ€™t eat a lot of meat to begin with, but I do look at it as a step towards a healthier, more sustainable, and less-expensive lifestyle. I still get to enjoy the baked goods I love (cookies, Iโ€™m never leaving youโ€ฆ), and of course pancakes! .
.

I invite anyone reading to challenge themselves to a healthy change in their diet, no matter how small, you may be surprised at what new foods you like or how good you can feel! .

I've actually only just stopped aching from the @lululemon Sweatlife Festival on the weekend! Absolutely ruined me! .
.
I'm finding it so hard to workout at the moment, the motivation is there until I actually start the workout, and then it just goes ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ it's been so long since i've been in a proper routine with my workouts, maybe a complete mix up is needed to get me back on track!
.
If anyone has any recommendations to get back at it then i'm all ears! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘

HOW TO BUILD STRENGTH FOR PUSH-UPS ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ if you're anything like me (or the majority of women), push-ups are hard (ok let's be serious, pretty much impossible๐Ÿ™„)...I tried doing tons of push-ups from my knees to build up strength for a regular push-ups but even though I could do like 50 push-ups from my knees, every time I moved to my toes, I still struggled to get more than like 2 full push-ups.
PROBLEM โฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธ
When you do push-ups from your knees, you're not training the proper movement nor using/engaging the proper muscles to do a full push-up (in other words, when you do push-ups from your knees you only get better at doing push-ups from your knees). SOLUTION โฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธ
In order to get better at full push-ups, you need to practice doing push-ups with full range of motion, using the proper muscles. ENTER NEGATIVE PUSH-UPS...
1๏ธโƒฃ Negative push-ups: start in a high plank position (engaging the core, lats, glutes), slowly lower your body all the way to the ground for 5 or more seconds (I started with 5 of these every day and built up to 10 before I introduced a hold at the bottom...
2๏ธโƒฃ Negative push-ups with hold at bottom: holding at the bottom will build up the strength you need to push back up (the longer you can hold it the better).
3๏ธโƒฃ Full push-up: once you can hold at the bottom with proper alignment, begin to push the ground away for a full push-up! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐ŸŽ‰
Give these a try and let me know how it goes for you!!! HAPPY HUMPDAY! ๐Ÿ‘

Some days you just have to take it all in. The beautiful weather, a productive day, the fresh air, and the sound of the wind in the trees. It is days like today that I'm really grateful to have the life that I have. We get really caught up in the day to day that we forget to practice gratitude and our blessings. Today I'm soaking up all the little beautiful things in my life and capturing this perfect moment in time. ๐Ÿ’•โœจ

Cardio is in the books for today โœ”๏ธ After not working out for almost 10 days, I have been so sore the last two days, especially in my legs and glutes after leg day Monday ๐Ÿ”ฅ But I love that feeling, because it means my body's changing!

In the words of one of my favorite bands @twentyonepilots, I've been seriously on the "run and go" these past few days ๐Ÿ˜… My body and energy levels are seriously missing my usual @shakeology and workout schedule ๐Ÿ˜ฉ So I snatched up this delicious veggie hummus wrap, fruit, and a small iced coffee at the amazing @cnn food court for lunch ๐Ÿ˜ I'm all about seeking out as many sources of fruit, vegetables, and protein as much as I can for meals/snacks, everywhere I go! Even if I have to spend an extra buck or two ๐Ÿ˜‚ Bur it has truly been the most amazing news filled day, and I am so blessed to be here! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

PRE Shift Shop Speed workout (I was perhaps a little bit optimistic about what was coming my way ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚). I am 2 weeks into SHIFT SHOP/training for my 10k, 3 days into my challenge group. So to be real ... Yesterday I missed my workout because in all honesty I did not stick to my daily schedule and as a result my body felt sluggish and my nutrition went off track. This was a day where I gave in to my "I'll do it tomorrow voice". BUT that's why they call it a challenge group - to challenge you. When I get tired , old habits kick in.The challenge is pushing through and not giving in to old habits PERMANENTLY ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ๐Ÿšซ I've learned it's about consistency , not perfection โœ”๏ธ. So today my main priority was getting my workout in and sticking to my nutrition. To make a lifestyle change , I have to make the lifestyle commitment ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ. I committed to these goals and this challenge group, I'm going to do it to the best of my ability. Here is my #accountabilitypost . I committed to 21 shift shop workouts, not 20, so tomorrow I am doubling up (speed and strength ๐Ÿ˜ฌ). #RISEUP โ€ข

Gorgeous day for a LISS workout

So I've made it to the gym the past 2 days at 7am (!) before work to do BBG Stronger Week 1 Legs and Arms & Abs but not had time to post as always have to dash straight to work... however now my ankle is swollen to within an inch of it's life the gym tomorrow is not going to be happening ๐Ÿ˜‚ (I promise I don't always have a cankle, an evil mosquito bit me ๐Ÿ‘ฟ) #bbg #bbguk #bbggirls #bbgsisters #kaylaitsines #kaylasarmy #bbgstronger #bbgstrongerweek1 #sweatwithkayla #deathbykayla #bikinibodyguide

If any of you saw my insta story you know that my arm was twitching like crazy last night. Good news, it finally stopped today ๐Ÿ˜‚ BBG 2 is no joke. I have never felt so sore after an arm workout!! I could feel it while I was performing the exercises but I didn't know just how much I'd feel it the next few days! I love it though because that means I actually pushed myself through an arm workout which NEVER happens! My last name is very deceiving because it's my legs that are strong not my arms ๐Ÿ™ˆ What's your favorite body part to train??

Funny fact about my hoodie: it's from my middle school so I haven't worn it in 8+ years but I wanted a crop hoodie so I figured what the heck. But I told my sister I feel like I can't wear it in public because where I'm from, everyone who went to that school hated it ๐Ÿ˜‚ we called it prison ๐Ÿ™Š

"Travel isnโ€™t always pretty. It isnโ€™t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But thatโ€™s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind." -- Anthony Bourdain.

Went to a new strength and cardio class this afternoon and really felt the ๐Ÿ”ฅ I usually prefer to workout earlier in the day, but sometimes we have to adjust our schedules ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ time, or lack of time, usually stresses me out; but I'm learning that I can usually squeeze in more than I think!

Why did I become a health coach?
______________________________________
To be completely honest, I was very reluctant to become a health coach. I had so many excuses not to, and most of all I was just scared of failing.
To be even more honest, I did it with selfish intentions. I became a health coach to hold myself accountable, to make sure my healthy habits wouldn't slip away. .

Here we are a few months later, and I'm proud of my success so far. I may have done this for myself but I'm also CHANGING LIVES! When people start seeing results, the feeling is amazing! That feeling is why I've continued this journey, and why I do what I do everyday.
