Weight Loss Reality

A Quick Solution to Lose Weight

It’s a simple enough question, but with all the fads, trends, and theories it begins to get complicated. If you’re not like me and decided to go and pursue a degree in Fitness and Exercise Science the science aspect of it doesn’t matter to you. You’re looking for an answer to your question, “How do I lose weight?” and you’re are looking for fast, noticeable results, right? Then you should stop reading here because unfortunately unless you’re trying to lose 5 lbs, then you may need to have a little more patience.  I find when you break down the science it comes to three things:

  1. Mentally be ready to change.
  2. Eat Right
  3. Exercise Often and Consistently

The Real Solution to Lose Weight

I also know that it takes longer than 21 days to create a lifestyle change, ...

My Must Haves of 2017

Just a few Must Haves for the New Year

So, you’ve got your planner packed in your meal planning bag as you just strapped on your fitness tracker and ready to tackle your day with your new protein shaker (with protein in it) and 64 ounce water bottle to wash down your salad and chicken breast that you’re going to devour because it’s the New Year and you’re ready for this New You to emerge in the next two weeks, right? Am I exaggerating? Just a little. It has come the time of year that I love the enthusiasm and energy of people making a really effort to stick to their resolutions but I think people miss the mark and don’t adequately prepare...

11th day of FaithFueled Fitmas

Day 11

For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, Ephesians 2:14

Yesterday, we talked about the anticipation of Immanuel, Our Savior to be born. What does it mean for Christ to be born? Since we already have seen the effects of his birth, this is not a trick question but mostly a question to insight, “Why are we celebrating Christmas?” I think modern day society we take the conveniences of life for granted. Often taking and never considering how it was given to us and why. Salvation is often taken for granted which I feel disappointing. We were given salvation through the birth and death of Christ and too often once we accept Christ we feel like that is a confirmation of our place in eternity...

12th Day of Fitmas

The Christmas Season is in full swing and despite my efforts to have a stress free, merry holiday I find myself getting caught up in the wrong reasons for this Holiday Cheer.  In the last few weeks, I have seen “12 Days of Fitmas Challenges” popping up all over my social media.  Never did I see anyone address the reason for the season. Now, I know with the various beliefs not everyone is celebrating the Holiday Season for the birth of Christ but this girl is and I couldn’t think of anything better than taking care of our temples at the same time. Carving out 30 minutes a day to reflect on God’s word to anticipate the birth of Christ and relieve some stress through a 15 minute physical activity.  That’s something that I couldn’t find, so, I made my own!

For the next 12 days we will b...

Another Fun Saturday

A few weekends ago, I was blessed to Dance, Exercise and Have fun for a good cause!  I love to dance! Before I recommitted to Christ, you could easily find a girlfriend and me at the club till it shut down, dancing like it was our job. I don’t mean on the pole, though; we just loved to dance. I’m not sure if it’s a Jersey Girl thing but pounding the floor in high heels is what we do around her Friday, Saturday night. I found something that takes you me back to my club days but in a healthier way that honors my temple.

Last weekend, I was invited my Fit On Purpose to attend their KerBOOMKa for Breast Cancer Event with Fierce Fitness by Tru Adams who you all know that I adore. I was fortunate to experience the creator of the Jillian Michaels Sweat Inc. TV Show p...

Cleaning Up my Skincare

Alright, now that I know what is wrong with my stomach and I know how to fix it I have been on a mission to have clear skin the natural way. I don’t need a mask, treatment anything I want to improve my skin without Toxic Chemicals. My diet alone has made a vast improvement. Living a wheat free, mostly dairy free (I still love Cheese and Vegan Cheese doesn’t have the variety for my passion for yummy gourmet cheese and I need to detox, seriously). Wasn’t it till I had watched a documentary on Whats up with wheat?  It was eye opening, and I suggest that you check it out if you are wondering why this Gluten-Intolerance, Wheat Allergy is becoming an epidemic.

Wheat effecting my skin too

I learned a lot about digestion and gut health but what shocked me was that we pro...

What’s the deal with Macro Counting?

Meal Time Monday [Autosaved]

calculating-macros

I have been counting macro’s for a while now about 6 months and it has made a world of difference in my diet.  I also recently just passed my nutrition class at school so that makes me an authority on macro’s, right? Nope, but I am going to let you in on my notes from my personal research.

Macro’s?

According to my textbook Visualizing Nutrition Everyday Choices, macros are “Carbohydrates, lipids (aka fats. Proteins, and water.” I am not including alcohol although it is a macro it is not a nutrient required to live. It does contain calories which is why it is a macro but let’s try to keep it out of our count.  These are all considered macronutrients and what we need in large amounts...

Food & Mood: Healing the Whole Person- Mind, Body, & Spirit

faithfueledfeatureguestblogger

Recently, on Social Media I have been open with my battle of anxiety and depression and how living a healthier lifestyle has helped me.  I reached out to a long time friend Dr.Angela Clack to get her expert opinion on the effects of food and nutrition on mental health. I am honored that Dr. Clack would share with me and my readers.  Some great info here so take notes: 

It all starts with your mindset

Five years ago I lost 50lbs with fitness, nutrition, and accountability (a great nutritionist, professional accountability to hold my feet to the fire if I messed up) and I loved the results. However, because I made my goal a number on the scale and a clothing size instead of a commitment to a lifestyle change- the weight slowly crept back...
