Don’t give up!

I think that we tend to compare ourselves to others. I am in aware of people who lose almost 100 pounds in a year but I also read about people who lose much less in a year. It is the strenght to struggle even when it’s bad – it doesn’t matter how much time it takes to lose weight.

 Don’t compare yourself to other people, we are all individuals and that includes the ability to lose weight faster or slower.

 Sometimes you can even gain weight while trying to lose it, but it does not mean that it’s not the end of your plan. Be strong!. You can do it

My favorite sandwich!

I woke up today early in the morning why? I wanted to make sure to have time for breakfast and prepare a veggie sandwich for lunch. Yesterday I bought a  piece of smoked salmon.  I remembered to use a whole grain bread,  I add my favorite vegetables like tomato, lettuce , chive , or avocado, this bomb of healthy fats will help me survive to a late dinner!

Too busy to be slim!

We work so hard. Watching kids, shopping plus housework, hitting work deadlines etc, we are so busy that we often forget about taking care of ourselves. What happens? We slowly begin to lose energy, gain weight, emotionally eat and feel useless.

The truth is, It’s not going to be better with your time. You have to take care of house, kids and work, so it’s a moment to learn how to take care of yourself. What does it mean? It’s time to plan ahead.

In order to stay healthy, fit and energetic all you have to do is  plan.

 

If you don’t think it’s so important or easy,try me. There are 4 easy steps to do it  You will see the difference after  1 week

Drink 8 hydrating drinks a day.

Limit yourself to one coffee daily and opt for green tea.

Exercise a minimum of three times per week. It doesn’t matter if it’s walking at fast pace, push ups or hitting the treadmill. As th

Wake up a little bit ealier than anyone else to stretch. It literally changes your day.

Don’t forget! Try to enjoy your life. When speaking with people in their 80s or 90s, they always say how they miss the “busy times”. 

Finding Perfect Snacks

When I’m getting hungry I always think about something really tasty: cookies and pies are my number one snack. Changing my habits when I want to eat a banana bread, than I think banana:) Calories counter is helpful, because I can compare calories in banana versus calories in banana bread. What’s worth it? It is not that simple, but it is a matter of thinking in a right direction. You can do it:)
