I don’t know about you, but I never seem to get the right balance with nutrition and exercise. I either find myself religiously working out, 5/6 days a week, feeling great, but not eating right as I am in the mentality that “oh I worked out already, so I can eat this chocolate.” Or I eat great, really healthily, but don’t exercise, as I think “I’m eating great and loosing weight, so I don’t need to exercise.”
At the moment I am eating great, but not exercising, I keep telling myself “Oh well, weight loss is 70 percent diet, and 30 per cent exercise.” However if I don’t work out I won’t be toned, I need to kick myself up the bum. Think of it this way, you eat 3-5 times a day, everyday, however you only workout 1-2 times a day 5-6 times a week. The activity that you partake in the most, if obviously going to have a greater impact on your body.
So starting this week, as in tomorrow! I am going to workout 4 days a week, and keep my healthy diet up.
I am also upping my soup/smoothie diet, to kick start my weight loss for December. So I will be having 3 smoothies a day, and 3 soups a day, it will almost be like a cleanse. Everything I eat will be green and I will be making sure the soups and smoothies are rammed full of protein so I do not loose muscle mass like you can do in some cleanses.
