What You Can Do Right Now To Lose Weight
I don't know about you, but I struggle much more when it's cold outside. The only thing I want to do is eat and sleep. That being said, I still want to fit into my clothes when spring finally rolls around. I would like to tell you about 4 things I never stop doing no matter how much I may want to. They keep my metabolism running fast, making it harder to gain weight while making it easier to lose.
Get up and move every day, no excuses. I walk for 60 minutes daily - period. It's the only way I nail the 10,000 steps that our body requires. This weather is the perfect example why I suggest everyone own a treadmill and not rely on getting to a gym or going outside.
Drink my shake after my 60 minute walk. I hate my Protein Shake cold so I make it the night before and keep it in the refrigerator, allowing me more time to sleep in. I use a small milk frother to make it fluffy and delicious. Just like those fattening, expensive beverages that we all like from places like Starbucks. If I crave milk or cream in my coffee I use a little of the pre-made shake in my coffee instead.
I also struggle with dinner this time of year because I crave comfort food. Slimming salads are not appealing so I reach for chicken soup for my metabolism or a sauteed salad to satisfy my cravings and fill me up. This type of eating allows me to stay on course while eating as much as I want without feeling guilty. You can find all the recipes you would ever need in my book, The Metabolism Solution.
I never stop taking my supplements. If I did, my cravings would win and I would struggle to function or even get out of bed for that matter. Every LynFit supplement was created to solve a real-life problem. I battled with making sure to keep the quality high so you can actually feel the difference while being 100% safe.
One of the most popular questions I get every day is, "what do you take and how, when, how much?". Here is my current routine. This is a real-time, real-life look into my life. Warts and all. I pray that this helps you feel better fast.
4:30am: Thyroid medicine
4:45am: Walk at least 60 minutes on the treadmill
5:45am: Melt-fat mochaccino shake. I never add any type of milk, fruit or anything that adds calories. I battle with weight enough so I never add additional calories.
(1) LynFit Accelerator, (1) LynFit Cutting Edge, (1) LynFit Pure Omega 3, (1) LynFit D3-Boost
Off to see clients......
9:00am: (1) LynFit Daily Power Shot pre-workout
9:15am: Metabolic boosting workout group. I do the metabolic workout Monday, Wednesday and Friday religiously because it's only 30 minutes and I like the way it tightens, tones and reshapes my body fast without bulking. I also need the metabolic boost it provides compared to all the other workouts. You can learn more about the metabolic workouts HERE.
10:00am: My brunch/lunch. (1) LynFit Chocolate Lean Bar with hot tea. Yes, I should have a shake but I have a Lean Bar instead unless I've been really bad with my eating.
1:00pm: Green apple and small (kid's size) fat free, sugar free yogurt. This is my indulgence.
(1) LynFit D3-Boost, (1) LynFit Pure Omega 3, (1) LynFit Carb Edge (I'll take 2 Carb Edge if the cravings are really bad).
If I'm on the road and afraid I'll forget, or I'm struggling with food cravings or low energy/depressed, I'll take the Carb Edge at 10:00am with my brunch/lunch.
I focus on work, not food, by staying super busy. If I need a mental work break I'll work on my projects or charities.
3:00pm: Stretch to relieve physical and mental stress while overseeing my kids' homework.
6:00pm: (2) LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse (3 - if hormones affect my regularity). I'll have a huge serving of Ciambotta on a bed of lettuce or sauteed salad with shrimp or tilapia. Some nights I will skip the protein at dinner to avoid chicken, which slows/stops my weight loss and causes my body to gain weight fast.
Here's the kicker; night is the worst time for me, no matter how much I eat. So I leave a little wiggle room for myself all day by keeping my food clean and staying busy. Learn more about Metabolism Mind Games in "The Metabolism Solution".
7:30pm: After dinner (yes, I know my meals aren't spaced 3 hours apart - I live in the real world too) I have a small tea cup that I put ¼-½ cup of water in with (1) scoop of Complete Protein Shake. I eat it with a spoon like cake batter that we all love - chunks and all. I love licking the spoon and this satisfies my insatiable sweet tooth. If the weather is nice I'll go walk the dogs instead. This helps me lose the 5 pounds I inevitably gain every winter.
9:00pm: By 9:00pm I'm fighting to stay awake so I take (1) LynFit Lean Sleep and dive under the covers with my dogs.
I'm all about total transparency and letting you see how human I am. I'm no different than you. The most important thing I can teach you is that when you fall off; and you will, learn how to get up fast and brush yourself off, forgive yourself, and start over at your next meal. I hope this helps you battle your way through the remaining winter days.
Tomorrow is a new day and provides a new start. Just don't wait until a few days from now. Do.......it.......now. Your someday is today!
No Excuses, Stay Strong!
