For me, health & fitness is about improving my life, not making it miserable. So It’s important to find a balance that makes you happy, healthy and motivated!
Easter is knocking the door and it is not realistic for a lot of us to say we won’t eat any chocolates/candy.
After my power walk today I decided to have a Lindt Milk Chocolate Bunny because it reminds me of my childhood. I’m gonna enjoy my treat and won’t regret it!!
One unhealthy meal won’t ruin your progress, so don’t let it ruin your life and state of mind. Happy Easter to y’all.
Keep the love, get rid of the handles
Yay or Nay?! Skinny or Fat?! #transformationtuesday
No I have not been dieting on and off all my life. I actually had the ideal weight for my hight but in my head, I was always fat.
I have been suffering from an eating disorder since I was little.
I had always a real fear of weight gain, I used to eat less, pretend I’m full, fast, or excessive exercise (I was a swimmer till the age of 18).
Unfortunately I grew up with this bad habit and as I’m living alone for such long time, I never liked to cook, so it was easier for me to eat in restaurants or deliver fast food to home. I used to eat one meal per day because I didn’t feel hungry too much, I worked for long hours everyday that sometimes I forgot to eat and I never had breakfast, but then I found out that I’m getting weak and became actually over weight so I got depressed.
The problem here that when I’m depressed I eat less or starve myself because I have no appetite. I had constant stomach pain. I don’t really remember when I became unhappy with my body but I remember that I was disgusted by the way my belly had grow and bloated and I started to have love handles too.
Anyway to make this story short I just wanted to share with you that all too often, we make the weight loss much more difficult than it needs to be with extreme diets that leave us cranky and starving.
The unhealthy lifestyle choices that we follow, and the emotional eating habits always stop us from being healthy.
The good news is that there’s a better way! My trainer “David Seisay“ has designed a customized food and training programme for me. I learned that I can lose weight without feeling miserable with making smart choices every day, developing new eating habits and preferences that will leave me feeling satisfied—and winning the battle.
There is no “one size fits all”, so think lifestyle change, not short-term diet, set goals to keep you motivated, ask for the help and support of a professional. My personal trainer @daviddflexseisay didn’t only share with me his experience about how to exercise in a smart way, but also helped me to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle!!
Today, I’m a fitgirl .. What does that mean?
It means that food is my fuel and that I eat plenty of healthy, nutritious food. It means that I workout to feel and look healthy, not to match any beauty ideals of society. It means that I’m happy, satisfied and strong and don’t let others put me down. I’m proud to call myself a fitgirl.
