Everyone struggles with different concepts when it comes to losing weight. Some struggle with eating: portion control, finding healthy foods that they like, etc. Some struggle with working out: motivation, finding time, finding a workout that they like, etc. It is difficult to find and maintain a balance that promotes a healthy lifestyle as well as compliments the lifestyle that you currently have. For me, it involves waking up early to wake up my metabolism and eating breakfast around 7:00. Here is what a perfect day of healthy eating, exercise, and balance looks like for me.
5:30am- Wake up.
6:15am-7:15 am: Pure Barre or Solid Core Class.
7:45am: Make a green smoothie or gluten free almond butter toast for breakfast.
10:00am: Protein bar as a snack.
12:00pm: Eat a salad with protein, fruit or veggie as a side, nut or nut mix as a side, and usually a GOGO Squeeze or applesauce as a side for lunch.
3:00pm: Have a banana or apple as a snack.
4:30-5:30pm: If time is there, I usually do a mix of a cardio/ weight lifting workout before dinner.
6:15pm: Have a fish or meat protein with a veggie as a side for dinner.
9:30pm: Go to sleep for 8 hours sleep before repeating the next day.
The two workouts a day mix cardio, weight training, and resistance training to form the best recipe for weight loss. The lean meats and lots of protein aim for a sculpted body with little unhealthy fats . This, of course, would not work for everyone. But, I hope this gives everyone some great ideas on how to incorporate healthy living and eating into every day life!
