Hey Sistas! Weight Gain. This is a hard thing to discuss, but my goal is to share more with you all this year. It’s always great to talk about losing weight, but I rarely see people talk about the actual weight gain. I didn’t document my last weight loss journey, but around four years ago I lost 50 pounds. Since then, I’ve gained around 20-25 of those pounds back. It has been really difficult to find the motivation to get back in the groove of living a healthier lifestyle. My weight gain was gradual and mostly caused by stress and the overwhelmed feeling caused by my job. I was in a funk and had so many excuses as to why I couldn’t do what I knew needed to be done to lose the weight. It’s so important to realize that you need to take control of your body and health and stop to making excuse. Evaluate your life and make the changes that will contribute to living a longer, healthier life. If you know you’re going to be too tired to workout after work, wake up early and workout before you go to work. I know, I know, it’s hard to wake up in the morning, especially when you have to muster up enough energy to go to the gym. I have a technique that really helped when I worked out in the morning that could help you. Set a loud, annoying alarm and place it in another room, so in order to turn it off, you will have to get out of bed and walk around. By the time you get to the alarm clock, you will probably have enough energy to officially wake up and go to the gym. I give more examples in the video, so watch it and get motivated to make a change in your life. It’s hard to get started, but once you do, you’ll be so happy you did.
