Hey there!!! I hope you are having a great week! Today I thought I would write about weight loss 🙄 I have recently began a new eating lifestyle called Trim Healthy Mama. I absolutely am loving how flexible it is and how family friendly the meals can be! I mean how obnoxious is it when you are trying to eat a specific way and end up needing to fix separate meals?? One for your family, and one for yourself! If you haven’t heard of THM (Trim Healthy Mama) I insist you head over and check them out 💗
Everything I will be listing here today is what I have found that works for me and my body. I hope you can find something here today that you are able to implement in your lifestyle and see results from (no matter how small).
Ok, so first things first…everyone knows that when it comes to weight loss, the #1 focus should be in the kitchen, managing what you are eating. The #2 focus should always be exercising….getting up off of your butt and moving! This is the one I have trouble finding time for! My schedule is ridiculously busy…I mean BUSY!! I absolutely do not have time to focus and hour of my time a day towards exercise. I have tried, and unfortunately when I do, things get neglected. Things that absolutely CANT get neglected.
I know that as the girls get older this will be lot easier to manage. But for now, small increments is what I settle for. I have been doing small “challenges” to help with this. Planks, squats, push ups, jumping jacks, anything that I can randomly break out in for a few minutes at a time during the day helps! As a homeschooling mama with a toddler in tow, and so many extra curricular activities life gets busy. Evening walks are a favorite in our household. This is nice because it helps get EVERYONE moving, not just myself. I also try to implement physical activities in our home school that we can all participate in…for example and afternoon hula hooping contest 💕
Aside from changing your relationship with food and exercising, your water intake is SUPER important!! This helps your body’s organs function at their highest to remove toxins from your body. Also, if your water intake stays steady then your body will not retain as much water 💧
I have learned that I tend to drink more water when I am drinking it from a nice portable cup with a straw. This may sound weird haha. I mean, I don’t know why this is, but hey, if it means my water intake increases without me realizing it, then hey I’ll take it! So if you are having trouble increasing your water intake, maybe try this method out and grab yourself a fun travel bottle with a straw 😊
I am all about this tea for so many reasons!! This tea is so yummy! You can drink it cold or hot, it is good either way. Also, mixing it up with some extra flavorful ingredients is a nice variety.
The list of BENEFITS of this tea is so long. Among the top benefits are prevention of ovarian cancer, improved bone health, helps control diabetes, and of course that it raises your metabolism to help aid in weight loss. There are way too many benefits of this tea to list here today. I am obsessed with this tea and drink at least 2 strong glasses of it a day. Most of the time I drink it plain, but I have been known to mix it up with other flavorful healthy ingredients to change things up a bit ☕
This is one I cannot give my experience from personally. I suffer from insomnia and typically run on about 3 hours of sleep a night unfortunately. But I have read and read in so many places how getting enough sleep and having a regular sleep a schedule really helps in lowering your body’s stress levels. Which in return, aids in managing your weight loss. Just don’t over due the sleep…too much sleep can hinder your weight loss.
Even though I suffer from insomnia, and can’t force myself to sleep a certain amount of time per night, I have however implemented a routine! I may not get enough sleep physically, but creating this nighttime routine had helped a great deal in calming my mind and relieving some stress😏
There have been studies that swapping out just 2 tablespoon of your other oils and replacing them with coconut oil through out the day aids in shrinking that waist line! Coconut oil differs from those other fats by having medium chain triglycerides. Coconut oil doesn’t seem to raise your cholesterol and is more likely to be burned as energy than stored in your body as fat! Hey and it turns your home into a tropical smelling vacationing spot while cooking with it 😉
Well there it is! Simple changes to add into your life to help aid in your weight loss! There are many choices out there to help with this, but these are my top choices that I have implemented into my lifestyle that have shown noticeable results 👍
Do you have any suggestions to add that has shown you noticeable results? Let me know in the comments. I hope you enjoyed this post! If so be sure to share share share! Thanks 😋
