Let’s begin the holiday season I bring you fitness cheer. I hope everyone has a Thanksgiving. One thing that is very important during this time of year is maintaining our fitness. With all the egg nog, turkey and dressing it is easy to slack off and cheat a little bit. There ae still ways to keep yourself in shape while still being able to enjoy all of the festivities. One great tip that I recommend is going for a brisk walk in your neighborhood after eating. Activity is the greatest tool against fat during this time of the year and it’s important to stay active.

Remember ladies it is clean diet and exercise! When it comes to losing weight and losing it for good, it means you have to do something differently, especially when it comes to food. It’s about changing your relationship with food. Stop thinking you can’t eat that, or won’t eat this. Is the taste of food or avoiding redundant food more important than reaching your goals? Take control and use food as fuel. It doesn’t mean you can never have a cheat meal, but don’t cheat yourself and your potential if you are not willing to try something different.
I appreciate all the love from my followers. But I hope you don’t think my transformation didn’t come without sacrifice. I couldn’t accomplish my goals by eating cheats every day. I ate the same foods every day and trained my palette that food is fuel. There were times that I ate fish and rice as my first meal of the day. My mindset changed and I no longer think in terms of breakfast, lunch and dinner, I think meal 1,2,3 and so forth.
The great part of a meal plan is that you don’t have think about what you want to eat and you save so much time. TIME!!! Think about it, a consistent meal plan will make grocery shopping easier, because you already know what you NEED to get. Get my free meal plan here…http://blackwomendoworkout.com/free-meal-plan/. If you meal prep twice a week, you save on 5 days during the week on NOT cooking. Honestly who has the time to cook 5-6 different meals every day? ANSWER: hardly anyone. The purpose of meal plans is to take the thinking and guessing game out of your relationship with food. If you don’t have the time to work out, I am not sure when you will have the time to cook.
This was so important for me to share because I really hope people don’t think my journey was an easy one. It just came to a point that I realized that a short term satisfaction from pizza, cookies, or margaritas should not interrupt my long term goal as Fitter Smiles. “
