My Fitness Journey: THE TRUTH
Today I'm going to share with you the struggles I've faced during my fitness journey and tips to overcome them.
I started REALLY working out in 2015. I started off going once a day to the gym, then eventually made it twice a day 5 days a week. I got pregnant in 2016 and kept going to the gym twice a day while pregant. I stopped working out about 2 weeks before my due date to avoid overdoing it.
After my beautiful baby boy was born, I completely stopped going to the gym. I tried doing at home workouts, but would be too distracted to focus. Trying to balance having my first child-which I was completely clueless of what to do- and working out was a struggle.
But what I did continue doing, was eating healthy. At that time I was vegan. Living in California, it was easy to be vegan. Every restaurant I enjoyed going to had vegan options. I was able to maintain a good diet and was able to stay in decent shape.
Fast forward a few pregancies later, when I moved back to Florida, my decent shape stretched out and plumped up a bit. I gave up being vegan b/c of the lack of options I could find. I started eating junk food OFTEN.
So to make up for not eating a healthy diet, I started going to the gym every now and again. But would walk about 3 miles 5 days a week. I figured I could eat junk food, but work it off by exercising.
Then once COVID came, I completely stopped going to the gym and walking 3 miles a day. Unfortunately, a year later and COVID is still here. So instead of using this as another excuse as to why I can't work out, I decided to make a change.
The one thing I noticed over the years, I lacked motivation. I would feel it in my soul, that I wanted to make a change but I needed an extra push. I searched online for months until I came across LadyBoss.
At first it seemed overwhelming with all of the options they have. But I found that starting with changing my diet first, before diving into the workouts, was the best way for me to start.
TIP 1: Meal Replacement Shakes
I definitely recommend finding a meal replacement shake that tastes good enough to make you really want to replace a meal with it.
Start off with 1 shake a day and work your way to twice a day. I found it easy to replace my breakfast and lunch with the proper shake and have a healthy dinner.
LadyBoss has a Vanilla Cake Shake that is absolutely delicious. Once you order your first bag, you will receive a ton of exercise trainings and healthy recipes with it. You will also get first dibbs on the new flavor drops!
These are just a few of their past flavor drops.
