Scared of having a bit of fat in your diet??? We actually need to... Here's why: they are incredibly important, just as carbohydrates and proteins for the human body, yet fats provide our body with a layer of protection, literally insulating our organs and also keeping a normal body core temperature. Fats also help us digest fat-soluble vitamins such as A, D, E, and K and keep our brains, cells, hormones, tissues, hair, skin, and nails healthy. 👉🏻 so.... did you have your healthy fats today? #healthyfats#macros#almonds#healthysnack#coachyeli
Apple cider vinegar is definitely a must have in my pantry! There are numerous benefits to ACV but here are just a few- It can cure and prevent symptoms of the common cold, detox the body, healthy weight loss, acid reflux cure, relieves allergy symptoms, and balances your PH. Rather than just taking it straight I mix a tablespoon with a splash of water and some lemon juice. Do you take ACV?
3 reasons why I do not like cheat meals: 1/ The association that a cheat meal brings about with someone's psychology and beliefs. Ultimately this turns is 'clean Vs junk' food issue. Sure some foods are more nutrient dense and healthier but that doesn't mean your favourite snack etc can't be in your diet? 2/ Usually 'cheat meals' turn into an onslaught of eating and massively over consuming calories at one feeding or day. It begins with instant gratification and follows with the guilt of having to return to a strict diet and training regime. A recipe for disaster and something that is just not sustainable long term. Good luck eating clean after you've binged on countless calories the day before. 👍🏼 3/ I hate the idea having to wait for 1 meal or day a week to really enjoy a food you like. Okay this is different if you have very specific goals and deadlines but even then I would question if including some your favourite foods would really de-rail or slow down your progress? Create a nutrition plan that suits you, is aligned with your goals and is something you can see yourself doing for longer than just a few weeks. You'll notice it's far easier to stay in shape with a lot less hassle. 🙏🏼
Was reaaaaally craving some ice cream today, and I found this! Expensive as shit so will be a rare treat, but so so so good. For one half-cup serving its 2F, 12C, 6P. Compared to Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie (which was my first choice), at 12F, 34C, 4P per serving. Satisfied my craving and didn't kill my daily macro goals! 🙌🏻 #nutrition#weightloss#transformation#macros#icecream#cravings#happy
• ⬅️1/11/17, 146lbs • ➡️1/18/17, 146lbs Check ins with Coach @teamctn today and he shows me this 😳 Same weight. 1 week apart. But tighter, leaner, smaller. SCREW the scale!! Watching my body change on a weekly basis at this point and it just motivates me more and more to beat the last package I built. I cannot wait to get back on stage this spring to see what's been lurking under the #offseasonbody 👊🏻💪🏻🔥
You won't see any progress tomorrow unless you start today! _________________________________ In fitness, just like anything else, the reward you get is equal to the effort you put in! Fitness is not always easy. Workouts can be tough and strict diets can be difficult to follow, but you can make fitness fit into your life! As long as you make the conscious effort to do your best, you WILL make progress. Being fit doesn't mean you have to give up the foods you like, it just means incorporating moderation. One thing I learned with contest prep dieting is that "unhealthy food" tastes SO much better when you wait and have it on a special occasion. For example, if you eat healthy the whole week and schedule a cheat meal on a Friday night, I can guarantee that meal will be so much more satisfying than if you just ate poorly the whole week and ate that same food. It is merely something to keep in mind if you are a foodie like myself! Lift hard and eat well, but don't forget to live a little too 😉
The fat is finally budging! 💪🏽 Pretty hectic work week so far teaching a whole ton of classes. One of my new faves to teach alongside Cycle is definitely LBT. Got to love that booty workout 🍑 -------- If you're interested in keeping up with my personal #fitnessjourney then please do follow me and let me know you're here🌸🌷✨
Waffles at 3pm anyone? We're basically out of groceries around here but seriously needed a snack. @kodiakcakes waffles to the rescue!!! We topped them with homemade vanilla syrup (recipe below) and a little butter for some fun. Came out to about 50 carbs, 21 protein, & 10 fat. And if you're like me and never remember you need to buy syrup until you're actually making your waffles, here's a little simple EASY recipe! 2 parts sugar (I usually do 1 cup) 1 part water (usually 1/2 cup) Vanilla (Enough to make it caramel colored. They also sell an awesome extract called mapline! Super tasty for a maple flavor) Bring to a boil. If you like it thin, it only needs to boil for a little bit. If you're like my hubby and like a thicker syrup, boil it a minute or 2. If you're feeling really fancy, add a dash of cinnamon and/or nutmeg! When cooled, store in the fridge, but I doubt you'll have any leftovers 😜. . . . #proteinwaffles#protein#goodeats#recipe#mkearneyfit#macros
