FWTFL: Most Frequently Asked Fitness/Nutrition Questions
How do you have time to workout every day? This is still y’alls most asked question and it drives me a little bit crazy! Because I want you all to prioritize your health the way you prioritize laundry or errands. To me, going to the gym is more important than both of those. So if I have to choose between an empty laundry basket or a crossed off to-do list, I’m going to pick the gym every single time. It’s self-care and personal health and it is VERY IMPORTANT! Try this way of thinking for a week. I promise you’ll see a difference!
How do you figure out the right amount of calories to eat a day? My go-to is MyFitnessPal. When you set up your profile be HONEST about your lifestyle. First, pick Lose Weight if that is your goal. Next they ask your activity level. POINTER- if you work a desk job 40+ hours a week but workout 3-4 times a week, you still are only considered lightly active. A majority of your day is spent sitting down. This is very important in calculating your overall calories so be honest. Also, do not over-calculate your calories based on your workouts!
How do you stay on track with your diet? I absolutely understand why this is hard. Women have more expectations now than they ever have, and our days are jam-packed. I keep healthy snacks on hand 24/7. Premier Protein shakes, protein bars, salads I can grab on-the-go, unsalted mixed nuts for high fat days. These are always in my purse. Which is a little weird, but important for staying on track with a healthy-eating lifestyle.
