I don't know about you but I am a foodie. I love food, but as I mentioned in my last post getting older can also mean your not gonna burn the same way you did when you was younger so here goes a few tips to help that have helped me.
Did you know that green tea has been shown to boost the metabolic rate and increase fat burning? I have been drinking green tea and have seen it help with bloating as well as my extra water intake.
Plus did you know sometimes we think we are hungry but we are actually thirsty and so drinking my tea helps with that also? Drinking water really is important not only do you keep hydrated to keep you will see the benefits over time.
Change Your Snacks:
My biggest thing is snacking and that is where I lose my focus. My most guilty time is actually when I am working on posts.
I've been learning to change regular chips to apple chips they are easy to make (if you like I could share how I make mine just leave me a comment and I'll share my recipe in another post.)
I also make sure I have a little cup of nuts be it almonds.walnuts or peanuts. They are not only filling but as well good for you with the right kinds of fats for you.
Be kind to yourself. I know from experience you expect things to go faster then they are going and want to give up. DO NOT. keep going.
This is when your strength needs to kick in. I always have a little book where I write how I'm feeling about my journey and I try to keep moving. Grab some headphones and dance about.
Once you get your heart rate up that will give you some motivation and before you know it you have gotten your first 10 minutes you can go again in an hr. and soon you will have had done 30 minutes or more that will less to improving yourself.
I will be sharing a few of my favorite recipes in the coming weeks that are not only filling but delicious and healthy.
I'd love to hear how your journey is coming along? What's your biggest obstacle?
