"This is it" you say as you set another fitness goal.
"I'm going to lose a minimum of 1kg per week. This is my time, its going to happen I promise".
You post on Facebook to your buddies with the hashtags #cleaneating #motivated #igotthis #fitness to show your commitment.
You tell yourself - "I want to fit into my jeans again". "I want to weigh X kilograms and I want to be X body fat percentage"
You focus so hard on achieving those goals. A week passes by, you jump on the scales and nothings changed.
You're frustrated and angry that you put in so much effort yet you didn't see the scales go down.
Soon enough you're back to square one. You're unhappy and uncomfortable with your current state of health and frustration sets in. Not mention you're hoping nobody asks about how your motivated Facebook 'goal setting' post is going.
Sound familiar? Can you relate to this on some level? I've been there myself...
So, where did it all go wrong?
You could be focussing on the wrong type of goal...
Have you ever felt unsure of what to eat when snack time hits?
It's that mid morning crave and mid afternoon slump!
You're hangry, you want food fast and food that's easy to make! You want something that gives you a boost of energy, tastes great and doesn't break the calorie budget.
Well, I've got the perfect hanger cure! Here are five quick, healthy, low calorie snack ideas you will love!
Have you ever come home from a long day at work and said "screw it, the last thing I want to do right now is cook so let's get take away instead"? This leads to the ordering of a high calorie meal, combined with a couple of glasses of wine and an element of guilt. Not to mention jeopardised results! Sound familiar?
Well, there's good news! You're not alone. You just want something simple right? You might be like me, someone who sucks at cooking! (I won't judge).
A recipe you can throw together in 10-20 minutes, that doesn't feel like an effort is the best option. A dinner that's quick, easy, leaves you satisfied AND helps you lose fat!
