More is not always better. Better is better.
After sharing a before and after picture along with encouragement that eating more, more consistently was a huge key in my progress, I got the question as to whether I’m more active now and burning more calories.
In fact the opposite is true.
I used to be so guilty of believing the answer to weight loss was exercising more and was always the queen of cardio.
I would typically go to CrossFit and do a quick at home workout 6 days a week, and was teaching 5-6 fitness classes a week (doing the workout with class).
I was hungry all the time, tired, and couldn’t figure out why my weight wouldn’t budge and my hard work didn’t show.
Then the pandemic hit, and my workouts went down to once a day, usually an hour a day.
Slowly, I started to make progress.
It was easier to stick to my calorie goals.
My body was able to recover better.
And, my self inflicted stress levels dropped way down.

Follow a progressive, safely designed, effective program. Give your body time to recover and repair, and back off on the stress.
Create more habits that will help you be more consistent.
I’d rather you be 90% consistent, happy and healthy….
Than 50% extreme, burnt out, and starting again on Monday.
Consistency wins every time.
