Now that the open is just 5 weeks away there will a lot of rowing sessions in the morning... Today a little interval beauty:
4 rounds: 1:30 work 0:30 rest
4 rounds: 1:15 work 0:45 rest
4 rounds: 1:00 work 1:00 rest
Very happy with both my split times (this is not about going all out) but mainly my almost perfect consistency between interval times 💪🏼 Let's do this amigos and amigas!! Pay the man 👊🏼
If you are new to the weight loss lifestyle or simply aren’t getting the results you would expect from your diet, try this:
Stop your diet and go back to eating the way you enjoy.
Here’s the catch though, TRACK YOUR CALORIES AND DO NOT GO OVER THEM. Rather than thinking “oh sh**, I can’t eat that, I can’t eat this, that’s a no no food”, all you have to think is, “well, that’s it for me today”.
Google TDEE Calculator and find out how many calories you should be consuming for your body height/weight and activity level and STICK TO THOSE CALORIES+ your exercise. You will begin to realize that the food you’re eating is absolute crap and 2200 calories of it will not fill you up.
At that point, make another decision to try one healthier option a day. My buddy @fit.for.forrest is the King of finding the healthier option.
You’ll realize this: “hot damn, that healthy option made me feel great. I’m not bloated, I’m not gassy, I’m not sweating, I’m not oily. Oh. And that only cost me 600 of my 2200 calories...holy crap, I have sooo much more food to eat!”. As your body gets used to eating healthier foods (and as it asks you to eat healthier foods) you will find junk food less appealing. Not because of taste, but because you don’t miss the bloat, gas, oil or sweat.
And the beautiful thing is that if you do give in to temptation, all you have to do is track the calories, and don’t go over for the rest of the day. HALLELUJAH! No more feeling like a horrible person for cheating on a diet because you aren’t on a diet. You’re in a lifestyle, and that lifestyle has 2200 calories of room for enjoyment (even more if you exercise haha).This is the path that will lead you to weight loss success.
I give you my word, and so would @hello.fit.jess and @fit.for.forrest, that dieting is not the only way. I promise if you try this, better, healthier, more sustainable decisions will be naturally occurring and your physical and mental health will greatly improve
