We always love looking for stylish gym outfit ideas. Here is a look I would love to own. I’m a big fan of neutrals but never mind a bit of color.
Snacks and Other
Create Shopping List Before: This way you can prepare meal with shared ingredients and avoid over buying food.
Prepare Realistic Amount Meals: There is no need to prepare every single meal because some will end up in the trash on Sundays. Spontaneous plans occur so allow flexibility in your meal planning. Prepare four to five lunches and breakfast, three to five dinners and some am and pm snacks.
Buying Sweets: I personally do not like buying packaged sweets during my grocery shopping. However, I do buy a few ingredients in order to create a quick dessert, like mug cake or protein balls, when the craving creeps in.
Tight Budget: Eating healthy doesn’t have to be expensive. Buy in season fruit and veggies. Find whats on sale at your nearest grocery store and buy food in bulk and freeze.
While some girls may shy away from heavy weights, we find muscles on women to be sexy. For example Andrea Brazier and Paige Hathaway. Sadly, not all of us were born with Victoria Secret bodies, but we can find other ways to bring out the best in our physique. Here is what our workouts consist of:
Resistance Training: Majority of our workouts consists of weight training for strength and toning.
Cardiovascular Training: Here we switch it up from circuit training to HITT runs, and even spin classes. Anything that gets our heart rate up and burns those one too many cookies we love to eat.
Core / Flexibility Training: Our weakest area, which is why we recently started yoga.
Our workout routines will be posted soon.
Everyone has his or her own food philosophy. It how you choose to eat the way you do and the decision you make on what goes into your body. It’s been heard over and over again that losing weight is 80% of what you eat and 20% exercise. Yet most people think they can eat anything they want and still see results.
In the past we thought counting calories and doing tons of cardio would get us the results we wanted and surprise surprise it never happened! After many failed attempt we finally buckled down and started learning about proper nutrition. And finally we saw the weight loss we wanted and more importantly was keeping it off. We still have a hard time eating “clean”, but we never give up. We wake up everyday to a fresh start.
Now this is our food philosophy.
Our protein choices are lean meats, eggs, and fish. We have one scoop of a protein powder a day, as a quick meal replacement.
We eat limited amount of diary products, like Greek yogurt, cheeses, etc.
Our veggies consist of 30-50% of our meals.
We prefer our carbohydrates to be slow digesting and high fiber, such as oats, yams, sweet potato, brown rice, gluten free whole grains, beans and low fructose fruits (berries, apples, pears).
We consume our high fructose carbohydrates around lifting times and limited to 20% of total carbohydrates.
We eat a mix of good fats such as saturated fats (animal product, dark chocolate and coconuts), monounsaturated fats (nuts, avocado and olives) and polyunsaturated fats (omega-3 seafood, hemp, chai and flax seed).
Although we avoid highly processed food and refined sugar, we do allow a few treats that are minimally processed. Our treats should have only ingredients that we understand and are sweetened with natural sugars.
