Summer is almost here and time to start thinking about that bikini – all the work we have since November is now going to pay off.
We have lifted tons of weight, tons, of JJ’s, and even a few hundred burpees along the way. Now is time to start putting it all together with nutrition and workouts to make that last push to “cut” or shed those last few pounds of body fat!!
We all have an idea body shape or look we want to see, and having the right amount body fat is key to making that look happen. Check out the pic below and you can see what different body fat percentages look – the idea is to be 30% or below
I’m at the studio every Friday doing leg workouts., over the years I have seen many people come and go but on Friday it seems there are three distinct types of people who always show up for a good workout:
- People who are wanting to lose body fat
- People who have already lost body fat
- People who are keeping off body fat
Every body else it seems are doing other things besides burning body fat – or that’s how I see it anyways
A calorie is a calorie but some calories are “empty” calories.
Next time you grab a quick snack, choose a nutritionally dense food, such as fruits, vegetables, yogurt vs. greasy, salty, sweet processed snacks.
Whats your favorite snack?
I want to teach people about “body awareness” and how to lose body fat, which starts by “detoxing” the body of extra fats, carbohydrates and sugars. A person has to be mindful of what goes into the body and how much they want vs. what they need. There is no other way.
Eat to live, not live to eat. Choose between quality and quantity. Quality is more nutritious for the body. Quantity is to hard on the body because of toxic fat stores.
You have to negate the extra calories (sugar/candy)from the diet if they can not be eaten with control. You have to be a responsible cookie owner!!
You have to be in control and accountable for your self. if you think you need help, help yourself.
Self help is the best help.
