Hey y’all… So its been a over a year since I decided to change my life forever and I haven’t looked back ever since. I have spent the last year or so just learning about food, my body and building a new relationship with all elements of ME. I am still adjusting to this new trimmer body of mine and it is a very very VERY big change to get used to. I have since stopped weighing myself as I think that you can become obsessive over how much you weigh and I don’t calorie count as it drove me nuts.
So since my update in December 2013 I have increased how active I am, I workout at the gym 3 to 4 times a week. As I have lost so much weight and would like to tone up, I have now increased the amount weights I use. Let me just say anyone that goes to the gym on a regular basis will know how addictive that place can be. I love knowing that each time I workout I approve become stronger fitter and even more focused. Being fit and healthy is one of the BEST feelings in the world especially when you are doing things you could never do before.
We can’t forget the most important and vital part to a healthy lifestyle FOOD!!
My lifestyle has transitioned from cutting out certain food items to a fully fledged vegan, I am experimenting with food and I always will. I am enjoying every minute of discovering new recipes and new foods everyday. My food choices are ones that make me feel good, that I enjoy and will want for the rest of my life. The key to my success in losing weight and maintaining it, is to not deprive yourself but to find alternatives. I still eat cake and the things considered naughty but that is because I find ways to have them that are more beneficial to my body.
My body will never be perfect but it is AMAZING and so worth it…..
I still have a long way to go but I am so up for it considering how far I have come! For any of you that are out there on a path to a better lifestyle and just a better YOU, stay strong and ENJOY!
We only have one life and one body so treat it right and keep it TIGHT!!
Hey y’all got a little video on my weight loss journey and a few bits on life in 2013.
At the beginning of the year changes happened to me and I also decided to make some changes of my own. I am very proud of myself in how far I have come, there is still a long way to go but that is what makes it all exciting!
Whatever it is that you decide to do in life be persistent, passionate, consistent and just keep on going don’t give up!!!
The hustle, the grind and hard work never stops!!
Everybody needs a bit of chocolate in their life this is a good way to get that sweetness but still be healthy at the same time. They are so cheap, easy to make and so yummy to eat. I am always looking for sweet things I can knock up myself eliminate any packaged goods.
So I have been getting a bit bored lately with trying to find healthy and nutritious snacks that satisfy you and still taste good.
If you didn’t know already I LOVE FOOD 🙂
Love creating new delicious but still healthy recipes that are simple and not too expensive.
Now I do like a burger and I LOVE chips but I wanted to add my own lil twist and have less unhealthy fat all up in there. So I decided to use turkey mince to create my burgers and sweet potato to create my chips. Let me just say ummmmm ummmmm DELISH you will never eat a beef burger ever again!!!
If you want to have a try at making these keep on reading 🙂
