Salads and Sweat!

Phew! I am having an absolutely crazy week and with this heat things are just becoming so much harder! I am sorry that I have been able to blog for a few days my little milklets but I have unfortunately had to cope with a loss this week. I hope that if any of you are currently, or are recently dealing with a similar thing that you are well and that you are coping.

As much as I love going to the gym sometimes I am just too exhausted and I feel like I get too hot and sweaty walking there and back and then everything just seems to become unproductive when I arrive! Hereby, I am considering letting the gym be for a while I have picked up a 30 day home workout which you don’t need equipment for! I know a lot of you readers will be self conscious and therefore not ready to go to the gym, hereby I thought I would share this workout with you all and also some little dieting tips I have learned!

Now, I have not dropped dress sizes or become significantly skinnier since doing my diet and workouts, but I have noticed a difference in the sense that my bum feels firmer and my arm weight is tighter. This 30 day workout that I am about to share with you is one that I found on Pinterest – that is a really good sight for anybody looking to lose weight so check that out – but it is also a KILLER workout. It leaves me dripping with sweat everyday so make sure you’re in the right mindset and are in shape so you don’t cause harm to yourself!

That is some workout huh! I am not sure that I will be able to cope with it all myself so always feel free to switch things up to better suit you! There is nothing wrong with doing less squats or less leg lifts, it’s only about toning with these exercises for me!

Now, a lot of you guys have been telling me that you struggle with knowing what to eat when you are dieting and this is something I completely understand! We are all fed this idea (… see what I did there? I’m so punny! Okay, stop.) that to diet you must live off of grass and water. But honestly, you don’t! I’m no dietician but what I do know is that you do not need to starve yourself or live off of nearly nothing to have a healthy body. In fact, when you starve yourself you actually force your body to have to produce it’s own fat to replace the food that you’re not eating and this makes you bigger! So don’t do that as only the opposite of the desired effect that you want will be achieved.

Personally, when I am dieting I simply follow the daily calorie amount that a woman should have which is 2,000 calories a day. This way, I am not saying that I have to eat healthy food as such, (although this does help) but that I need to keep within my calorie limit. Doing this means that I have 500 calories for each main meal other than dinner which could become 700, leaving me 300 calories to snack on! Following this has not prevented me from losing weight nor toning so far so don’t be afraid to try it out!

If you’re like me and you still like to make sure you’re not eating too much “bad stuff” when you’re dieting because it makes you feel guilty, then feel free to hope onto some YouTube channels such as The Domestic Geek who whips up both healthy and unhealthy recipes to help you with your diets such as her special Salad In a Jar ideas which I love! Buzzfeed also has a health and fitness newsletter which often gives out new healthy food ideas so check that out!

Later in the week I will be providing a few diet plans for every week for some of you to follow if you’re still struggling! If any of you decide to follow the 30 day fitness challenge like me then please let me know as it would be great to know!

Good luck in all your fitness endeavours my little milklets and please don’t forget to follow and like our Facebook page! Have a good day!

 

With love,

Emma xxxx
