5 Habits Mom’s do to derail progress

mistake

I made a delicious, nutritious, and fat loss friendly meal for breakfast. Nothing extravagant Apple Chai (Sugar Free) Oatmeal and Hard boiled Eggs.  Something very simple after an intense workout. Ate my serving, that was measured out and a perfect portion, then I did the unthinkable. A habit that I have had since my lil diva’s started eating table food. I am usually mindful but you know how things go, sometimes you slip back into old habits. So, what did I do that is so heinous? As I am clearing the table, I…..yes, I did it. I scarfed down the leftover food from my littlest diva’s plate. (The horror-insert scared emoji here) I went from being completely satisfied with my meal, portion, and calories being in a healthy range...

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, ...

Make Your Resolution Stick

It’s that time of year! We are resolving of all the things that we want to improve on.  It’s a new year, a new opportunity to be the best you. Unfortunately, according to StatisticBrain in 2015 about 8% of people who made a New Year’s Resolution succeeded.  I used to be against New Year’s Resolution until I thought about it another way. Ordinarily, people wish, want and hope to be the best versions of themselves.  There is one time a year that we are united in our thinking that we need to make a change for the better in our lives and a New Year is a great opportunity to reflect on what that one, two or maybe three things...

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...

This is so cool today is my Spotlight day in the blog hop hosted by Runaway Bridal Planner, so WELCOME WELCOME I am excited that you’re here! I figured since there are so many new people I might as well unfold the master plan that has been brewing in my head for the last six months. Before I go there let me catch a few people up.

Let Me Introduce Myself

My name is De Bolton and haphazardly am now a faith-based fitness blogger sharing my love of faith, family, fitness and food. I started out as a mommy blogger, and I was going to drop some knowledge on the world through my little platform. After being picked up by a corporate sponsor in my first four months, I got the bug and began pursuing the world of blogging.

Meanwhile, I had some other things going on...

Living the GF Life

faithfueledfeature

Okay, guys! I may be going all into living this gluten free life.  Seven months ago I was tested for my allergies and among the seasonal allergies that I already knew of wheat and peas was one of the allergic reactions I had.  When I was in my teens, I had an allergy test with the same results but didn’t think anything of it. When I was 16, I didn’t care about my allergies and until that day didn’t realize the effect of ignoring my allergy had on my body.  I used to say regularly, “My stomach hates me,” after every meal.  I would get horrible headaches, itchy scratchy throat, constant post nasal drip always clearing my throat.  I always associated the throat and nasal to my known indoor/outdoor allergies.  I never thought it could be from the things I was eating...

Progress in Action

FaithFueled Friday
When was the last time you admired yourself in the mirror? When have you showed your self love? Gazed in the mirror and saw God’s beautiful creation. I find that we use the mirror incorrectly. Instead of finding why we are special we are critiquing why we don’t live up to some fictionalized standard. It is so easy to get overly critical of our appearance, character, actions, and habits; Especially when we are not meeting our expectations of what we should.

My Mirror Avoidance

Throughout my weight loss journey, my vanity and worldly views would steal my joy.  Looking back now that I am mental, spiritually and physically happy I realize this is a big problem for lots of people.  Hindsight is always crystal clear...

Effective Resistance Training

The flexibility of our schedule in the summer allowed me to go to the gym early in the morning. Now that school has started I have found it much harder to get up for those now even earlier morning AM workouts. I have to get back to a better sleep routine. So, I have disrupted my whole workout routine. It’s only been one full week, so it occurred to me the other day that I have all the essentials to get incredible at home workout. I started this journey working out at home, but I have added some new tools to my arsenal.

At Home, Workouts are the Best!

I forgot how much I love at home workouts. I don’t have to wait my turn, and I don’t have to wear headphones, leave the house, and find a sitter...

Getting My Functional Exercise

Functional Exercise

Functional exercises are performed every day in our workouts but have you considered doing a Functional Exercise workout to your weekly routine. As of recently this primary type of activity has not only caught my attention but is now I include it daily in my exercise.  It only takes me less than 20 minutes, and I am feeling the difference a month later.

What is Functional Exercise?

The point of the Functional exercise is to train your muscles to perform the everyday task safely and productively. Huh? Isn’t that the whole point of the exercise. Well yes, but functional training is more specific than that.  Functional exercises teach your muscles to work together and get them ready for your day to day tasks...
