I have been enjoying my new Space… I will do a story and post soon. I have a new chair, light fixture and shoe organizernon my list. Any recommendations will be appreciated. . . . I love a good pair of medium washed ankle jeans to show off your shoes! These white pumps are so fun for the Summer and really amp up this look. . . . http://liketk.it/2RNNZ #LTKspring #LTKshoecrush #LTKcurves #liketkit @liketoknow.it.family @liketoknow.it Download the LIKEtoKNOW.it shopping app to shop this pic via screenshot
It is well known as we age losing weight becomes even harder.
Throw in some menopause and a hectic work life and the struggle becomes even tougher.
I want to share what has worked for me. I am about 10 pounds away from my goal and I am very happy with the results I have achieved so far .
It is very personal our relationship with food. You will need to do a bit of soul searching and find out the why you are turning to food and what are your triggers?
I mean let’s face it great food is fantastic and Who wants to stop when it tastes this good and makes us feel good ..until our jeans will not zip.
Ok so now what has worked?
Every Morning before breakfast I hit my treadmill for some fasting cardio. This helps burn fat quicker because your body is not burning the food you have consumed. I will tell you that some mornings are a struggle but I always feel so accomplished when I am done. I also listen to great music and sing along . I also do my daily affirmations and pray.
I started taking Thrive supplements ( optimal nutrition) it is a combination of vitamin capsules with natural caffeine. There is includes a protein shake with probiotics that tastes delicious and then the trilogy is complete with a transdermal patch with more vitamins.
Thrive gave me the energy and focus along with some fantastic appetite suppressant that jump started me. Now I am
Just using the-protein shake. The weight loss obviously helped bring my energy back. So I did not need any additional caffeine.
I lost about eight pounds doing theses two things. So the third element was this.
One of my best friends had joined Weight Watchers ( just the App) and had quickly lost 10 lbs. She asked me to join because we always go to dinner throughout the week and we could help each other. Well this was one of the best decisions I made because the weight really started to come off. See the premise is this …eat lean protein like chicken and fish and also vegetables and fruit. Eggs are also zero points. Now not only am I accountable but I can still have a glass of wine or a better choice like a seltzer and a piece of sugar free chocolate.
Lastly, I also do strength training with weights. I mean menopause really wrecks the tightness and toning of your body.
So this is a non negotiable. I also do yoga and swim when I can.
I aim for a minimum of 7000 steps a day but usually get more. I average around 9800 steps a day.
So good luck to anyone who is trying to battle the middle age spread. This is not supported by WW or Thrive.
