I understand how you are feeling, I gained a lot of weight since I met my now fiancé and I’ve been trying to lose it but it’s being really hard, I just don’t feel as energetic and strong as I was 4 years ago, I have my best friends wedding in August and that was my date goal but I just don’t feel the motivation.
But my fiancé and I are joining a gym sometime next week I hope we can change this bad routine and be healthier, it’s just so weird to feel bloated everyday you know? I suffer from colitis and some days I don’t even like to use jeans or stand up, my stomach is so bloated because of the office routine.
The best advice I can give you is to follow Tone It Up search them on Instagram those girls are amazing, 6-7 years ago they helped me drop around 8kg in less than two months and gained a lot of muscle (muscle helps you to drop weight faster because it needs to work a lot so it keeps burning all day if you exercise it and feed it -> this sounded creepy 😂 LOL)
You can buy their meal plan I have it and it’s amazing or just follow the rules they give you. Go to their website it has a ton of info!
it’s something like this:
30 mins of walking, running, swimming, anything that gets you moving first thing in the morning
5-6 small meals a day
eat clean and green
limit starches after lunch
forget about added sugar (They suggest stevia, honey and maple)
Just little changes, they have 6-8 weeks plans to get you started, I think they are about to start the summer 8 week plan and 5-7 day plans if you have an event those are amazing.
Another advice is if your body isn’t responding (you’ve reached a plateau) to the same thing you have been doing you have to change it up, try another type of exercise or change your meals maybe add more fiber and remember to drink lots of water.
The last thing I’m going to say is try to not be so hard on yourself and enjoy being engaged and enjoy the process of wedding planning! Try to do little things everyday that make you happy! I understand and I also have to work on that but I’m getting there!
