When you start seeing results

22 Jul, 2015

 

 

They say it’s 70% diet, and 30% work out. If you do implement this lifestyle change, it’s actually a formula that works! (If your aim is to lose weight and get your body in a beautiful shape).

1 year ago I stopped (cut down by 95%) with all kinds of processed foods, and been eating as clean as possible most of the times. (With the exception of sometimes treating yourself or having big meals when out dining etc).

Between October 2014 – February 2015 I started going to the gym 4-5x a week, and I did it continuously with very little cheating.

 

Work out Results

 

Then I took a 3 month break while traveling (only with work out, clean eating continued) and when I came back in May I have been exercising and eating very well again on a regular basis.

Since October 2014 I have there for lost 8 kg’s. Which is quite good for a person who was not over weight or chubby but with an average body shape. People now notice a difference in my appearance and I do get a lot of compliments.

The goal was to burn some fat, build some muscles and get toned, so I would achieve a tighter body.

 

 

I have not reached my final goal yet, but I’m not far away now… 

I would like to share with those, who may feel like it’s an impossible quest to lose weight – yeah it’s true, that’s how it feels the first 2-3 months.

But if you really stick to the rules of the formula – the formula freakin’ works! All you need is patience and repetition because then YOU.WILL.GET.THE.PROMISED.RESULTS.

Live through those initial months, because after you will become even more motivated once you start seeing your appearance changing to the better – and that will feel like running down hill. The feeling is so amazing, and you will be willing to change your life forever, never stop with the work outs, because seeing the results will be so much in your face – you will never go back to your old habits.

I myself feel totally done with neglecting my body, health and appearance. Taking care of myself has never felt this good. And I will embrace this lifestyle change for the rest of my life because it’s the only way of making it sustainable. I love it!

 

 

“Just stick to the formula” – was a motto that got me through it. And today I can see in the mirror, the science worked!

Travelling + Going to the gym

20 Jul, 2015

 

 

Happy Monday to everyone!

The first thing on my agenda today: GYM!

And I’m doing this because I’m travelling right now (visiting my grand parents) and need to test myself – can I actually have the discipline to work out even when holidaying around? I think so actually.

I managed to find a gym not far away from their home, which offers weekly memberships, so I’m good to go!

Did my usual cardio and glute work out, and I feel so much better. Can’t wait to go tomorrow. In fact, I’m going to sleep a little bit earlier today so I can rise and shine and be ready to rock’n’roll. Maybe everything else I’ve always said was only excuses? Maybe working out while travelling is not that complicated after all? We’ll see :).

Work Out Motivation

Extremely Motivated

11 Jun, 2015

 

 

Work out motivation goes up and down in periods. Right now I’m in a super motivated phase, after being “on vacation” for 3 months aka Not much exercise!

I must say it was really hard keeping up with the exercise routine while travelling. I did a few attempts, but overall having an ongoing gymmin’ schedule was just too tough when changing locations so frequently.

 

Gym Motivation & Inspiration

 

The problem is that I’m not planning to stop travelling anytime soon, so I’m trying to figure out how to easy incorporate the gym routine in to my everyday life being on the road. What I need most is some form of gym access, but it will be an expensive story to buy daily passes since not many gyms offer weekly ones.

I still haven’t figured out a solution to be honest, so if anyone of experience wish to share their advice, please do!

 

 

But while I’m at my parents, there is plenty of comfort to be gymmin’, juicin’ and detoxing like there is no tomorrow! I’m super motivated and can’t wait to reach my final goals in terms of dropping the last desired percent of fat & gain some lean muscles (lol, this word is so trendy these days).

Btw. Another helper and motivator that I’ve started using on a serious level is these health bracelets which measure your steps/calorie burn etc which you keep track off on a designated app.

 

 

That combined with calorie counting app (My fitness pal) have made me really keep track of my macronutrients! Before I was always too lazy to calculate this stuff, because it is a bit of a pain in the ass to be honest… But oh does it open up your eyes to how much you are actually consuming, especially when you are like me who like to go and snack a little bit everywhere, all the time :) Even if it’s healthy snacking it still does not favour you carb counting-wise 😉
