If you only work one muscle each week, then work this one

If you only could work one muscle each week and you wanted to maximize your workouts, then I would suggest you work your legs! Legs are your biggest muscle, they’re half of your body so when you work these muscles, you’re burning a lot of calories. Also squats are the number 1 core workout, most people don’t know this but, when you are squatting, you’re working your core. So if there’s any muscle to work that’s vital to being in good shape, it’s going to be your legs.

Start where you can start

Start where you can start, stop trying to run a marathon in 1 day. It’s ok to do 1 mile today, or 1/4 of a mile to day because that’s a better version of you then yesterday. You’re about to start this new goal of working out and being healthier. Ok so commit where you can commit. Maybe thats just lifting weights 1 day a week, or 1 time every 2 weeks. Well commit to that, don’t try to go all out and do 3-5 days a week. If all you can truly commit to is 1 day or if this is a new thing for you then just do 1 day a week or 1 day every 14 days. Why? Because it’s not about other people’s goals and how they reached them. So what if she lost 100 lbs in 10 months and worked out 5 days a week and cheated on her meals 1 day a week. That’s not your journey and that’s not the 1 blue print for success. It is a blue print for success but it’s not the only one. Maybe yours is working out 1 day a week for 4 weeks, then for the next month its working out 2 days a week. And then month 3 its working out 3 days a week and eating right half of the week. And if it takes you 3 years to lose 100 lbs, then you still loss 100 lbs. You still reached your goals. Wether you like it or not the time will pass but its what you do in that time. Take it one step at a time, go at your pace and you’ll be there at your goals.

Can I drink coffee and lose weight?

Yes you can. You can drink coffee and lose weight. Coffee without dairy creamer and sugar is a weight loss stimulant because of its caffeine dosage inside of it. Caffeine as you know speeds up the heart rate so that you can burn more calories at rest and during workout. As well as have more energy during your workouts. So the main take away is to cream coffee with almond milk or cashew milk and sweeten it with stevia or splenda or equal. So feel free to drink a cup or 2 of coffee a day!

The key is the next best thing you can eat

The key to weight loss is the next best thing you can eat. So you messed up for breakfast this morning and had a sausage mcgriddle, with hash browns and orange juice from Mc Donalds this morning. Instead of letting that meal dictate your day, find out what’s the next best thing you can eat for your snack in 2 hours. Maybe its a cup of carrots, or almonds, or a piece of chicken. Eat that and move from there to lunch and have your next best meal.

1 food to avoid to loose weight fast

Diets can be a hassle, and nutritional advice can be complicated and confusing. So I am going to tell you a secret. One thing to avoid to for sure loose weight. That is bread. If food is being catered or you’re at an event wheres there is only sandwiches, always take the bread off and eat everything else. If you took bread out of your daily eating, you would loose weight and you would loose it fast!

Happy MLK Day

One of my favorite quotes from Dr. King reads “if you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward” As you pursue your fitness goals this year, don’t get lost in the “I don’t have the time or energy” even if you have 5 minutes, it’s better then nothing. Keep moving forward!
