Okay we all set goals with our body, we have certain expectations that we wish could happen overnight. Baby steps is what gets you there and you tend to maintain more.
I started off weighing 77kg. I got down to 57kg at my lightest, if I slowly creep but I get to hard on myself. I forget how far I have come.
I used to be a meal skipper and the binge on treats or eat healthy but not push myself at the gym. To lose the weight I trained hard and ate a very well balanced diet with proteins, greens and good carbs.
I continue to eat healthy and train hard but my weight has slowly creeped back up to 61kg. I think it’s because my head has not in the positive mindset!
Negative feelings about your body has been proven to make you gain weight due to your mood. When I am positive I am in a brighter headspace which clearly puts less stress on my body. I am less likely to get tired all the time, you can be more energetic with positive thoughts. I believe in myself more and I am more passionate about the good foods I put in my mouth.
So this weekend I am going to take the time to love myself more and stay positive.
Love you body, you only got one!
Be your own motivation!!
