Count Your Macros 

It’s hard to believe, but your kitchen, and what you keep in it, can have a huge impact on weight loss. Be sure to keep watch over the foods you buy, and the macronutrients inside them! 

Tracking your macronutrients, or macros, can help you make (or plan to make) smart, healthy food choices. It’s a great way to help you understand where your calories are coming from, and how they affect your body. Macros help you manage strength, energy, performance, and even sleep! They’re also, as the name suggests, the nutrients we consume the most of – protein, carbohydrates, and fats. 

It’s recommended that we get 10%-35% of our calories from protein, 45%-65% from carbohydrates, and 20%-35% from fats. Keeping track may seem tedious, but I can help take the guesswork out with 1 on 1 macro coaching, and new meal plans every week! These plans come complete with shopping lists, snack ideas, and recipes to make it easy for you to get, and stay, on track. 

Once your body is properly fueled, it’ll be easy to motivate yourself to get active, and make more healthy decisions. 

Join an Online Fitness Group 

Everyone, including myself, can use an extra push from time to time. By joining my Fitness Group, you’ll get instant access to my private Facebook group, and thousands of like-minded women ready and willing to give you 24/7 support when you need it most. The #SweatySisterhood will keep you inspired, so you can build strong muscles, and relationships. 

Another bonus of my online fitness group is the ability to workout whenever and wherever you get the chance – it’s perfect for busy schedules! All you’ll need is 24 minutes and wifi for high-intensity and strength training workouts that can be done anytime, anywhere, and at any fitness level. 

Start Off Slowly 

Be careful to not take on too much, too quickly. I know a lot of us are guilty of it, including me (my members would be the first to tell you), but it’s important to learn proper technique and form when exercising to avoid injury. 

Jumping into a rigorous routine before you’re ready can keep you from using proper form, can cause injury, and can often go unnoticed. Mistakes aren’t just in one movement: they’re repetitive habits that get picked up over time that usually become so routine, we don’t realize.

Everyone is different, and what’s right for someone else may not be right for you. So, be kind to yourself, and start with small, attainable goals you can build up over time. 

Make Short-Term and Long-Term Goals 

Setting short-term and long-term goals helps you move forward, stay on track, and gives you something to work towards. 

If you need help visualizing these goals, write them down! Think of it as a to-do list, and keep them within reach, so you don’t lose sight of them. You’ll gain a sense of accomplishment when you reach each goal, and are able to cross them off your list. These small accomplishments will add up, and achieving them will help keep you motivated to continue your fitness journey, even if you don’t think you’re seeing much progress. 

If you join my group, I can help you put together a list of short-term and long-term goals to help you get started!
