Have you been feeling overwhelmed with your never-ending to-do list?
I recently spoke with a gal who said that ignoring her health and not prioritizing herself is what lead to 20 pounds of weight gain since COVID started. She finally hit a wall and realized that she couldn’t continue putting herself dead last on her priority list. She was exhausted from sleepless nights, weight gain, low energy, late afternoon sugar crashes while heavily relying on coffee during the day and wine during the night.
I gave her a few strategies she could start right away!
Step 1: Set a DOABLE daily step goal. For beginners, I tell them shoot for 5k steps per day.
Step 2: Ditch the extreme food rules. Focus on 2 food things you can do. Unsure? Set a daily protein goal and a daily water goal. Start there.
Step 3: Take a hard and close look at your sleep and stress. Both those things impact your body’s ability to lose and gain weight.
Ask yourself, what’s one small stressor can I remove from my day? Perhaps it’s using a laundry or grocery service to save you some time that you can dedicate to walking.
Ask yourself what’s one thing can I do to improve my sleep? Taking magnesium at night does wonders for my sleep. Comment below if you want to know the brand that I use!
I know these three steps sound super simple, but they have helped me and my clients tremendously.
