I had an amazing weekend, one of those ones that just refreshes your soul 💖 Now tomorrow I'm back at work and back to the gym grind 💪 I'm actually so excited! I've got an event in three weeks that I want to train for (...😏) and I'm going to do so by creating a feasible gym schedule as well as reflecting upon and improving my diet in order to obtain optimal results!
.
I wanna chat a bit about new my dietary goals.
.
I commend those who can count their macros or follow very strict diets. But that is something I am just not capable of doing, especially considering my history with eating disorders. I used to be very strict with what I ate, causing a back lash of binge eating that stuck with me for 5 years. So I am not about to dip my toe in the water to test it. Instead, I want to set dietary "goals" that are lenient enough to allow room for the occasional break.
.
1. Lower sugar: this will not mean NO sugar. If I adhere from sugar all together, I am more likely to fall into cravings and over indulge. This is just me personally, maybe you can relate!
.
2. Lower dairy: it has been a goal of mine to cut dairy out all together bc most of the times it makes me bloated and uncomfortable. But again, I want to tread lightly when considering to "restrict" a type of food from my diet. If I want to have something with dairy in it (which usually doesn't happen anyways) I'm going to allow myself the pleasure.
.
3. Make all my meals: it's so easy to fall into a habit of eating processed, ready-made foods bc they are just so convenient. But even "healthy" foods like protein bars and such contain a lot of processed ingredients like sweeteners, preservatives, colourings, flavours, etc. And our bodies are not designed to digest these, which can lead to bloating and intestinal discomfort. There are even studies that show artificial sweeteners can sit in your gut for years! Making your meals ensures that at least you know what's going into your body.
.
4. Eating more veggies: enough said! 😊.
.
So starting tomorrow, I'm going to incorporate these 4 factors into my diet, along with a regular training routine (which I'll write more about later 💪).
.
Are you training for something?👇

Yall cant really see because this this the best pics HOwEVVA Logan and Laiyahs Edges were LAYED today!!! 💁🏽‍♀️ I use Onie Organics 😉 Annnnnn we have a wdge control sale coming up this week!

@thehealthygene chose our #cardio routine today. I saw it and thought.... ha! This will be easy.
I saw some little weighted punches and “bar throws” at the end... again, I thought, what an easy way to end cardio... 😳😳😳😳😳
My shoulders were on 🔥
Started with the #rogueechobike which is always brutal. After that, my heart is playing catch-up the whole time.
Felt good when it was done but damn I was wrong about it being easy.

Night time Chi captivates me every time. I seriously love just walking the river/lake/city at night. Always definitely puts me in a really good mood.

The Bears haven’t won back-to-back games in the month of September since 2014 when they beat the 49ers and the Jets. They broke their 4 season-long home opener winless streak last week. Will they break this 3 season-long streak tomorrow? •
