tbreannx3:  I stick with fairly clean eating but I do allow myself a couple cheat meals per week during my off-season. I started doing bikini competitions (gives me something to focus on) and am currently training for my third one! I lift weights 5-6 days per week for my exercise ๐Ÿ™‚

Go check out Kayla itsines she has amazing 12 week guides you can purchase and there’s a free week trial on her site too that you can try before hand, I love her workouts they take 30 mins so if you don’t have a lot of time their perfect, her guides really helped start my weight loss journey, I went from a 12 to a 4/6. I do weight training now and kind of crossfit ish stuff. 

Exercise is great but you need to adjust your eating its 80% diet 20% exersice. Just try to stick to whole foods and everything you eat ask yourself how is this food fueling my body. Lots of grains, veggies, fruits and nuts. Try to drink 12 glasses of water a day also, i find I’m way more energized when I drink more water and I feel less bloated.

kaelasoul:  countrybride2016:  Thanks ladies!

tbreannx3:  I don’t like eating chicken every day either. I definitely don’t like eating cod 4 meals a day for the two weeks before my shows either, but I do what I have to do to achieve the results I want. Theres no way around it–You cannot out-train a bad diet.

tbreannx3:  tomorrow when I’m on a computer and not my laptop I’ll send you a few different recipes and different ways to blend in chicken. You can even do some vegan dishes you don’t have to have meat all of the time

Yep! I started slowly exercising and counting calories my Junior year of college (around 4 years ago) and lost around 30 pounds in a year and a half. 4 years later, I’ve kept most of the weight off and I’ve completed 8 half marathons (whereas I used to struggle to run a mile). This is February 2011 vs Today:

tbreannx3:  I agree, I’ve found that any “diet” that is too restrictive is not sustainable for me. That’s why calorie counting worked for me–sure, I could have a brownie, but then that was dinner. I know that macro nutrients and a balanced diet are important for holistic health long-term, but through my weight loss journey, I’ve learned how to enjoy sweet snacks in moderation and find nutrient rich foods that are filling and delicious (I live by Greek yogurt!).

Calorie counting, eating mostly whole foods, and exercise helped me lose 25 lbs. I’ve maintained for five months now. No shake, wrap, crazy diet plan, etc will give you lasting results.

tbreannx3:  

I went from 140kg to 89kg.  I’m still no skinny mini but I have successfully kept my weightloss off for 5 years and for me that is a first. I honestly did it by changing my eating habits drastically. I cut down on processed and junk food and I cut down on the amount I ate and on portion Size. I also learnt about my food behaviors and why I overeat.

I have joined a gym in the last month (another first) and I am enjoying it immensely and I have seen a big change in my body. 

I do think cutting back on soda and junk is a good step for initial weightloss (what I did) but it won’t get you to being your best. Cleaning up your eating habits  and exercising is the only way. (hence my joining a gym and committing myself to eating a similar diet to a rabbit for the next 3 months)

I will also add that cutting out processed food that contain lots of salt fat and sugar will actually get you tasting real nutricious food differently and you may end up enjoying more than just chicken and bacon.

Hope to hear back from you in July!;-)
