Oh for the love...over carbs 😩 I was doing GREAT until hubs and I decided to watch Longmire and he remembers we have pie. Only half a slice and I shared with the dog but I still choose it. Perhaps this is why I pinned a keto cheesecake cupcake recipe earlier. #wls#vsg#carbcycling

Tuesday Tip: Looking for a flat tummy? First off, remember that just like anything- slimming down or building muscles in your mid-section is hard work and requires consistency. You’ll never get results overnight. That said, there are plenty of things you can do to help you gain strides towards a trimmer tummy. 1️⃣Drink a lot of water—at least half your body weight in ounces each day to keep hydrated and to flush out toxins. 2️⃣Do cardio- but try it fasted. This will help burn fat from your fat stores rather than burn food calories you just consumed. Try integrating fasted cardio 2-3 mornings a week and see how your body changes over traditional cardio exercises. 3️⃣Work on posture! Good posture helps strengthen your tummy muscles from front to back! 4️⃣Cut back on food that causes inflammation and bloating: dairy and gluten are a great place to start. You may not have a full blown intolerance but many of us still have some small inflammatory response to these good groups. 5️⃣Plank. Adding planks into your regular exercise routine is another great way to keep the core focus engaged and to build a strong core. 6️⃣Get on a probiotic. The right probiotic can actually convert food molecules to short chain fatty acids which control fat BURN, PREVENT fat storage, and will help cut down on that belly bloat. Try out @silverfernbrand ultimate probiotics... they work! (For more info on these head over to the link in my bio) There are many more tips and exercises to help you tone your tummy— these are a great place to start! Happy toning!
If you missed my *not so insta*🤪 stories today, I shared the answers to the question “when are the ONLY TWO times I need to (insert your specific healthy choice)?” ••••••• For me, my healthy choice of walking 10,000 steps per day began in July of “twenty thousand seventeen”. 😆🤦🏼♀️ ||That’s an inside joke between the insta story watchers and me.|| But you can click on that gray circle that says “getting started” and find it there. ••••••• The ANSWERS are: 1. When you want to. 2. And when you don’t. ••••••• In the process of losing 19 pounds and 19 overall inches, there may have been FIVE times I have wanted to show up and honor my commitment to my health and fitness. ••••••• Bottom line—I never [WANT] to because if my [MIND] isn’t standing in my way telling me I [CAN’T] physically do it, then my [EXCUSES] are. ••••••• I had SO. MANY. LEGIT. excuses today and in the past they would have won. ••••••• But, not TODAY! Nothing changes unless you show up. ••••••• In spite of my Excuses: 1. My garmin is being inaccurate and I don’t have time to deal with or figure out why. 2. My new playlist is incomplete and I don’t feel the vibe with the ones I put on there, anyway. 3. We have no diner plan. 4. My house is a DISAST. 5. Im exhausted. 6. I only have 30 minutes. 7. AND.... I can’t find my hair band to keep my hairs off my face 🤣 In spite of my excuses and my “I’m too tired to do much good”... IT HAPPENED!!!! ••••••• I only had time for 2 miles and... IT still HAPPENED!!!! ••••••• All I did was SHOW UP and put ONE FOOT in front of the other with ZERO energy or “want” in me and... IT HAPPENED. ••••••• My first ever negative split. 👊🏻🙌🏻😭 ••••••• Moral of the story:: Show up when you want to, and ESPECIALLY when you don’t.
