You know what’s the worst?

 

Being patient.

 

Going the the DMV, sitting at red lights, waiting for the next ‘Walking Dead’ season to start.

 

Heavily anticipating the chiseled 6 pack you’ve been working your butt off for for the last few weeks……………………

 

If your sacrifice isn’t balanced with some kind of reward (feeling great about your newly rockin body) you become seriously vulnerable to quitting before your strategy has a chance to work it’s magic.

 

In other words: Discouragement Happens.

 

Discouragement…….

IS THE ENEMY. It has destroyed many of my most admirable fitness attempts.

 

Here are some sounds of discouragement so you can see it coming:

 

‘My gym membership is over-priced. I miss doughnuts. Why isn’t my stomach isn’t resembling a cheese grater yet?’

 

And then it starts to sound like:

 

‘My body is just naturally this weight- nothing changes it. I mine as well eat whatever I want and skip the gym’.

 

BAM.

 

Your lazy, sloppy eating habits take over your positive attitude like weeds!!!!!!

 

To deter that  little devil on your shoulder, use the strategies below to lose some weight quick and feel great fast- the healthy way.

 

Because who doesn’t love instant gratification? #AmIRight.

 

1. Quit alcohol– The weight loss I experienced from quitting alcohol for 1 month BLEW MY MINNDDD. Turns out a ‘beer gut’ is not just for the heavy drinker. Within 2 weeks of quitting my ‘glass of red wine a day’ habit, I had lost 10 lbs and deflated like a popped ballon. My jeans fit better and my smile sparkled more. It was awesome.

 

2. Quit dairy– You know those murder mystery movies where you don’t know who the killer is until the end of the movie? And it turns out to be a lovable character your were certainly sure was innocent?

Well- that’s what happened with dairy and I. I thought we were cool. I thought we were buddies. I loved my mozzerella balls. I put my special TJs goat chevre on everything.

 

And then I started countin calories.

 

Day-uummm dairy. You are fat. Literally- just fat. And not the healthy kind.

 

I will write another post about the tragic perils of dairy. This is need-to-know information so hang tight.

 

Quitting dairy put me in the best shape of my life- on top of getting rid of allergic symptoms I didn’t even know I was having to it.

 

3. Quit sugar

 

I’m gonna be honest here. I’ve never full on quit sugar. I’ve been told it’s a fantastic way to lose 5 pounds and fast.

 

But  I want to make sure I practice what I preach. So for the next 30 days, I invite you to quit sugar (or dairy, or alcohol) with me.

 

Will you accept the 30 day fitness challenge?

 

What are you going to quit? I would love to hear about your goals and even more about your results.

I will be emailing you all sorts of things for the next 30 days to help you get in shape, including delicious recipes, embarrassing before and after photos of myself,  and more. Get ready. 

Cheers!
