You’re not alone!

There are millions of people out there who are doing the exact same thing as you.  Being fit and healthy should not be temporary, its a lifestyle.  Know that you are not alone!!  Fitness magazines and websites are great sources to use when you are in need of a little boost.  Everyday Health is an awesome site to use to get basic workout info, tips, and motivation.  Check it out!!!

STAY MOTIVATED

do it for you

One of the most common reasons for failure in a healthy lifestyle or weight loss plan results from you giving up.  If you want to see results or feel better you have to stay motivated and want it.  Just think of how great you will look after its all over, or how much better you will feel living a healthy lifestyle.  Love yourself and your body.  If you do this you will stay positive and want the best things for you.  The hard work and determination will pay off and once you see results, it will become an addiction.  Stay positive!!  It may be tough right now but you will get there and it will be so worth it!!!

Portion Control

I have learned that portion control is key while trying to lose weight.  A few months ago I was dieting and working out and seeing no results.  I soon became aware that my portion sizes of the “right” foods were too large, causing me to only maintain the size I already was at.  Although I was eating healthy foods, I was still eating too much which is very easy to do.  Check out this “size it right” guide to help you get an idea of correct portion sizes of your favorite foods!

Resist the temptation

We all have that one friend (or group of friends) who can eat whatever they want, never workout, and not gain a pound.  I know how hard it can be to resist the temptations of not getting the fried foods and deserts your friends are always wanting.  You have to be the “healthy one” when in all reality it is the best person to be!  Those fried and sugary foods are not good for you and will bring you down in the long run.  It is best to always settle for the healthier option no matter how hard it is!  Having to miss out on a lazy day of movies with your friends to go to the gym can be hard but it is worth it!  Just think of how good you are going to look in your bikini this season and how great eating healthy and exercising benefits your body and makes you feel.  Don’t even make feeling guilty about skipping out on a workout or eating something totally off your diet plan an option!  Just don’t do it!!

Amazing Arms

Most women want strong, toned arms but have the fear of getting too bulky.  With sleeveless weather coming our way you don’t need to feel as if you need to cover anything up!  Thankfully there are arm exercises we can use to get our arms long, lean, and strong.  The best thing about it is you don’t even need any hefty gym equipment for these exercises!  Most can be done using your own body weight.
