So, day two. I started out feeling really energized, not like me at all! I cannot believe how much I ate yesterday. So, I had 1,770 calories, and my intake was high in carbs – I was shocked. I found good carbs and good protein and good fats. It’s fun hunting for high protein food, So, if you’re interested in doing something like this, it would be really good to get connected because I can give you a hand on my journey and also pass you over my information I am leaning, if you are feeling like you want to do some proper weight training.
So I got up this morning and had a rice crispy cake, which is awesome. This is the best news ever. Because these sorts of foods I always limited myself from, and I always thought I was overeating. It now it turns out that I’m under eating and that’s why I was lethargic. That’s why I was getting cramps when I was doing training. That’s why I was putting on weight around my belly. There’s so many factors to food and your macros. It’s really down to just finding your balance, if you want to train hard and do well, you’ve got to put the hours in and the prep in, and it’s really important.
So if you’re like me who’s suffered with anxiety most of their lives and you need a challenge to keep going, i am sure this is for ideal for you because you set your plan, you set your attention, you’re accountable to a coach. You feel amazing when you’ve smashed your day, and you feel like you’re on a winning streak because you’re showing up every day to show that you can do this. This is why I teach my ladies in beauty how to be business women because it’s so important to show up and be accountable. The ones that don’t show up are not accountable, but that’s ok they are not ready. But if they did, they would see the benefits massively in life it’s about choice.
Before training I had my protein shake. It’s low calorie. Whey PHD. Done 45 mins body pump I did extra weights in my class today, also I did a little bit of a walk before I started. I have now had two eggs, spinach, and some sushi. This is really weird for me to eat straight after my workout and eat before my workout. So I’m really looking forward to seeing the results. Taking some pictures today of before, to see results in the next six months. But I’m also enjoying my journey at the same time.
This is not about the ultimate outcome. This is about changing my whole vitality, my whole section of food. I want to know everything now. I always worried about my stomach. I’m always moaning about, my chin, my arms. This is where I put a stop to that. This is where I change my mindset and say, “Sarah, you’re 47. Do something about it before it’s too late.” Because this is the time where you’re looking at your best. I feel a woman looks their best when they’re in their 40s, because they have the confidence, they have the security, they have the feeling that it’s going to go away, so they put harder effort into it.
So it’s really important we sit on this fence with this and learn about ourselves. You’re never too old to do anything, but you are going to find it more difficult if you don’t start today. And that’s what I’m going to teach you guys on my journey, how to execute a new you. Because nobody seems to be happy with their weight. And nobody seems to be happy with their lives unless they’re doing something that’s planned and makes you accountable. So, seriously, think about taking up a hobby, or taking up a way to make yourself feel good about yourself.
What’s the point of moaning constantly about yourself if you’re doing absolutely nothing about it? I will leave that there today. I will be back tomorrow. I’m going to have the best day learning about food. I’m doing podcasts and blogs . So, really excited and really happy to be on this journey. I hope you’ll follow me, and I hope it helps you learn to be the best you can be.
I’m full up on fish ……eggs…….. 😂 poor mick.
