Nighttime Snacking

Who struggles with Nighttime Snacking?!!! Here’s the deal…eating at night is NOT a bad thing, but it often can lead to OVEReating if not done right, or if done more out of habit than actual hunger.
 
I know for me this has ALWAYS been a struggle BUT along the way, I’ve developed some tricks that work best for me…
 
Here are some:
1. Drink lots of Water or Sip on Tea (Cinnamon is my fave!)
2. Factor a nighttime snack into your daily calories or portions! This way you won’t do any damage, by adding in a snack at night…you just gotta plan for it!
3. Change up your routine and keep busy. I like to get my workout in at night, and avoid boredom at all costs!
4. Load up on protein and fiber… it’s more filling and if you choose a caesin protein it will slowly digest at night and help with muscle recovery and repair! I love the Performance line recharge, but even plain Greek yogurt will do the trick!
 
What are some of your tricks to avoid the snack monster?!

Monday Motivation

For such a long time I put off coaching simply because I didn’t BELIEVE I could do it.
I didn’t have a 6 pack.
I didn’t know enough people.
I didn’t feel COMFORTABLE posting to social media.
I’m just not the type of person who was ever really SUCCESSFUL.
Then one day I realized something… every single person starts at ground ZERO. If I was going to do this, I had to start somewhere.
.
And no I didn’t grow a 6 pack overnight.
I didn’t meet 10,000 people in one day.
I still was a nervous wreck about posting to social media.
But instead I DECIDED that I was going to believe in myself and BELIEVE that I could be SUCCESSFUL.
I am not a special snowflake.
I am not extra talented.
I just work really hard and BELIEVE I am capable of pulling this off… so I am 😉
Wanna join me?!

Transformation is Individual

How you love yourself is how you treat others to love you 💛
.
Just a reminder, as many transformations as you see, always remember, everyone is on a different journey.
.
Goals should be individual, not universal. Just because someone is stronger, faster, or thinner doesn’t mean your effort isn’t as valid.
.
Work on your own goals for yourself. Progress will come.

Mindset Monday

Monday Vibes ✌️️hiding from the snow and working from home. Day one of our January group and loving the positive energy. Never go your fitness journey alone. I always used to feel so alone on my fitness journey. Not anymore. The more support the better.
.
Never feel ashamed for wanting to feel good.
Never apologize for ordering the salad.
Never feel guilty for making time to workout.
.
It’s hard to eat healthy, it’s harder to not feel good in your skin. You decide! 💛
