6 Tips from a Personal Trainer to Start Your Fitness Journey on Your Own 1. Make a commitment to YOURSELF. Most people pay for personal trainers because they want someone else to make them work. 2. Create a vision board. Having a goal in mind is going to be important for those days when you are not. The first step in starting your fitness journey is to identify the reason for your decision.

It could be anything. Maybe you want to fit in your old jeans. You are tired of. You CAN change your life. You CAN kickstart your fitness journey!

Here are three easy ways to start working out: -Set a goal: make it easy and measurable! Go for the low-hanging fruit. Write it down on a piece of paper and keep it where you’ll see it every day. By seeing this goal over and over, you’ll have it ingrained in your head. When you’re starting your fitness journey, I would suggest taking it one day at a time, and not focusing on too much at once.

For example, my goal was to lose weight. Instead of trying to manage my diet, drink the recommended amount of water, workout consistently, and maintain my daily work schedule, I exclusively focused on managing my diet. Exercise 2-4 Times a Week You do not have to go to the gym every day when you start your fitness journey.

Nor do you have to be doing an endless amount of steady-state cardio. You can simply begin to create a larger calorie deficit by proper weight training and sprinkling in a bit of cardio. It’s as important as working out. If you want you want to look and perform at your best, you will need to get some rest.

It will help your muscles to grow and will let your central nervous system to get back to its optimal state. Lack of sleep on the other hand can be detrimental to your fitness journey. A Few Tips for Beginners 1. Stay Hydrated. Drinking fluids throughout the day is essential for maintaining healthy hydration levels. Replenishing 2. Optimize Your Nutrition.

Be sure to consume a balanced diet to support your fitness program. All food groups are 3. Warm Up. It’s important to. Don’t start off trying to workout for several hours every day.

Try setting a more realistic goal such as working out for 30 minutes three times a week and then progress from there. Track Your Progression. It is important to track your fitness progression in a notebook or even a blog. Teach you how the equipment works. Create a beginners program for you.

Or, you can take group classes for beginners like a level 1 yoga class, introduction to spin etc. And of course, the cheapest and most obvious solution would be to workout with a fitness. Eating before few hours of waking up can jump-start your metabolism so stop skipping this meal and give your body a dose of healthy carbs like Oats, Eggs, Bananas, carrots etc.

In those crucial.

  • Amazing journey.  Thanks for the inspiration:) Almost all my life I have been bugged and bullied about my weight and have struggled with mental health.  I have finally begun the biggest fight of my life.  Anyone who’s interested please follow me:)

  • I’ve been trying to start for a couple months now.. I’ve lost about 5 pounds so far. I know it’s little but it’s given me I come back to this video every time I feel discouraged. Thank you!!

  • alcohol is a tough one… I’ve been a HEAVY drinker since my early teens.. and most if not all of my friends, being in our twenties love to drink… I need to remind myself that it’s just not worth it, and the damage i do to my body will outweigh the benefits of lifestyle change.

  • Great video Greg! Just some questions, when you say increasing intensity of your workouts you mean more reps, sets and shorter rest periods right? And is it normal to progress on a few workouts then regress one or two followed by an even greater progress? (Btw I’m talking about reps)

  • Hey, Rachel! I was just wondering what you would recommend as an end of the day “treat” for lack of a better term or meaning something that is going to make me feel satisfied after dinner. As of right now I have just one cookie a day, and I know one tiny cookie isn’t going to do any extreme harm, but I’d love to find some healthier replacement that you’d recommend that would make me feel like I’ve treated myself to a “desert” after dinner. Thanks!

  • Finally!!! I waited this when you post it on instagram im really really excited.
    I really really need to watch this

    i need someone to slap the shit out of me, thanks.

  • Great tips Janine. Baby steps is a big one for my clients. Choose a few things to change first and master then move on to the next ones to change.

  • I’ve cut back alcohol a ton but I still plan on cutting back more and more. It’s made a huge difference mentally and physically.

    New subscriber btw ��

  • The part about the commitment.. and knowing deep down inside I do know it’s going to take a long time ������ you definitely was talking to me

  • I subbed the channel over all it’s great advice good personality and production the only thing I’d say to change which could just be how it sounds on iPhone but the music is a bit over powering tune it down a tad so hearing you feels more impactful and the music is the background to empower what your talking about. Great video tho:)

  • I respect u so much i can tell how hard you work on editing and filming and your videos always come together so nicely, congrats on 50k u deserve it!!! ❤️

  • Dude, I really like your attitude:) nice videos! I’d like to know how I should make a training schedule, what to do for what kind of goals kinda.
    have a great one! 😉

  • Hi Brit! I’m just getting into your videos! I love them, do you have or can you do a separate video about how to start counting macros for beginners? I know you eat intuitively now but I would love to get started and I know a lot of people use certain apps and such!

  • Any one tried the Custokebon Secrets (search on google)? I have noticed several awesome things about this popular fat loss system.

  • I’m glad you kept it real! Bcus I really needed 2 hear this shyt. 4th week in and idk I’m ready to see that 360 result and it’s a slow process! But I guess with time things will actively change.

  • Love this, I have already started my fitness journey but this video really helped me that way I can encourage other people to start there’s!(:

  • Agree with tracking your macros. It’s the way I notice helps me stay on track. I have lost 26lbs using this method. I love sharing information too because it can be so helpful to others like this video!! Thanks Jeanine!!!

    Change is a Choice, the time is now!
    It’s not a quick fix, its gonna take blood, sweat and tears but I BELIEVE with Your Guidance and inspiration My Hard work will pay off 100%
    Adapting to a new way of Living, Mindset… Deffo going to be a Challenge but Investing Time, Rffort and Energy into Creating the BEST version of Me… its gonna pay off right? Its gonna be Worth it just Need to focus, Aiming to Master the Art of SELF LOVE&CARE
    Practice Setting Good intentions, Persistence, Patience and Positivity��♎����‍♀️������������

  • this maybe helpful to someone, but I start my morning with Meditation. It’s normally only 10-15 minutes, but that small moment once I wake up is HUGE for my whole day!
    And then I journal my day at the end of the night. it helps to not bring that days stress into my next day if that makes sense.

  • This was great to watch! I appreciate the end messages most and just how simple you’ve outlined it. I’ve overthought and beat myself up about fitness for a long time and I’ve been feeling pretty low recently, so thank you for sharing and uploading. I’m ready to make the rest of 2019 count!

  • I’ve recently started losing weight since quarantine started. I’ve lost 4kgs in a month just walking everyday and doing either an arm, leg&booty or ab workout. You’ve literally inspired me purely due to how relatable you are. Thank you so much!!

  • I really enjoyed your video! I just started my fitness journey and it would mean the world to me if you could check it out!

  • You have no idea of how much this video helped me, it gave me the motivation I needed. Now I know where to begin, than you so much! ������

  • Quick weight loss isn’t feasible for everybody, however I’ve seen success. I had a lot of failures in my past, then again I found something called The Venus Factor. Whoa! I am glad I found this info. I was finally able to dig up everything I needed to understand to shed weight all in one place! I cannot stress how quick this plan is and that it truly does work. Visit here and watch the video clip to see what i’m saying.

  • OK YASSSSS so this came at the perfect time, since I wanna return to eating healthy and working out because I stopped, yes sis in Christ, thank you so much Jeanine love you girly!!:) <3

  • I thought about getting your Gym Plan but I’m so intimidated by gyms and have no one who’d go with me. I hope I’ll find the courage soon.

  • Hey Gregory, I love your videos but find that the background music is quite loud and can’t hear what you are saying sometimes! Thanks for sharing your great tips, they are helping me with my gains:) Much love xx

  • If you are looking for some insight during your fitness journey, check out my latest podcast as I interviewed a fitness/mind coach that gives practical handles to help[ navigate through your fitness journey!

  • One piece of advice is to not think of food as a reward and working out as a punishment. If you “cheat” it’s just a part of the new lifestyle!

  • i have tried to lose weight and i still am. this video is really helpful but the only thing is that im in my early teens and i still live with my parents and i have siblings so theres always some type of junk food in the pantry. help jeanine! im dying here.

  • Good video! Your health and fitness is a lifetime investment. Peanut butter is actually better than almond butter because it has more protein. You just have to look for the sugar content on certian brands. Love you Jeanine ❤️

  • I recently lost 17 pounds.
    I gave up all fast foods.
    Stopped eating late.
    And I exercised frequently.
    There are little things that you can do that will help you lose and maintain your weight.

  • Just started following you and I have to say, you are a new favorite. I know this video is old but I still wanted to comment (I never comment on these). Even though I’ve been working out for a bit over the years I’ve been off and on and the last four months I’ve been lifting even more than ever. Your advice is perfect for getting over that fear that some people have. Plus your touching on mental illness is so amazing. Thank you and keep up the great work.

  • just subscribed to your channel because I watched a couple of your videos and you see like you have the best personality and are such a genuine soul! Exited to see what’s next for you girl and be apart of it

  • I haven’t watched your channel in such a long time, nd damn I’ve been so lost without your videos. There were so many times where I forgot why I started this weight-loss journey. Yes it been taking way too long to lose weight and even though I did, when I reached the plateau stage, I gave up. It took jst one vid from you to convince me that I should keep going and that I can. Thank you so much Calfee your the best ��������������

  • Such perfect timing! I struggled this week and didn’t work out although I was eating semi healthy, it’s encouraging to see this! Thanks so much love ❤️

  • I love how realistic and reassuring you are �� you make me feel like I can do it omg. Thank you so much! I’ll be following you from now on. Xoxoxo

  • Someone please reply because I need help:( I started working out a week ago. I do some cardio, then I weight lift and do resistance training. I changed my diet as well. I eat cleaner and I try to fit in all of my macros. Since then, I have gained 4 pounds!! I’ve been eating cleaner and working out but I still managed to gain weight? I feel like I look bigger as well, so I’m extremely disappointed. This is kind of killing my motivation to continue working out. Does anyone have any thoughts?

  • Hi love your videos! Could you tell me whats the name of the app that you are using to balance your diet? Also could you suggest me books to read about self confidence? Thank you! You are the best

  • I finished my freshman year and I found myself in a place very similar to how you were and you were the person who motivated me to go and begin my chapter 1. You are so inspirational and I wanted to thank you for this!

  • I like how you talked about alcool because I would’ve never thought of that. Tbh I’ve been going out every weekend for 3 months and putting on some tiny weight even though I’m naturally skinny/fit haven’t been feeling my best. Welp i guess I’ll stop drinking for now ����‍♀️

  • New subscriber here!! Great job keep up the good work!! I also start a YouTube page on my weight loss journey. So far I’ve lost 60 pounds plus and I feel amazing… Check it out if you get a chance!

  • How are you so underrated. I’ve been watching your vids for a while now but especially loved this one. So casual and natural! Also love the braids!

  • Well,i am new at this channel and you are amazing.Personaly, i heard of things that i do not hear from another videos you know like they say basic stuff however you say prototype things and this is really helpful. Again you are amazing❤

  • I can’t believe you have 50K followers when your videos are so professional like people with 2M. Keep it up I really enjoy your videos!

  • Good video, thanks for the tips but I was expecting some information or experiences about craving and negative mental talks about eating sugar ��

  • Do you have any tips about gym bullying and intimidation? People who are fit tend to be rude (jerks) in the gym. Of course, not all of them, but definitely a few of them.

  • how old were you when decided to lose your weight? I asked because I am 30 and I think My body becoming burning fats slowly… this really disappointed me

  • I don’t know if ‘The Dental Diet by Dr Steven Lin is available on Audible but I highly recommend the book! I’m just about to start reading ‘Gut’ by Julia Enders:)

  • How to stick to a weight loss journey.

    1Change your self talk (Believe in yourself)

    3 Develop healthy habits
    4Understand that it will take a long time
    5Remember that food is more important than exercise.
    6Know that it won’t always be fun or easy
    7Know that it is simple and possible
    8Be consistent and keep pushing forward

  • could u Plz do a detailed tutorial on the pull up and how to engage your back I’m struggling loads and i have watched loads of tutorials but your my favourite calisthenics athlete

  • Love your energy and your healthy outlook on lifestyle/health. It’s very easy to get caught up in what we see on Instagram and put so much pressure on ourselves to look a certain way. But your outlook is so inspiring. Enjoy life but do your best to make healthy choices and work out by doing what you like (yoga, lifting, running, etc).

    I have always struggled with my body image. I’ve been very thin my entire life and hearing “why dont you eat something” and “only dogs like bones” used to hurt me and make me so anxious to go to the gym. I’ve become a lot happier/comfortable in my own skin. I may not be able to lift as much as most people but hey I’m trying and making progress to feel strong. Thank you for being a great supporter to both those who are already fitness experts but to us who are new to this. Keep doing you boo!

  • last year i lost a lot of weight, and i was feeling pretty god and i liked the way i look. i kinda slowed down during the holidays, which i regret. now i’m right back where i started. so i’ve took initiative to start while we’re in quarantine and there’s nothing else to do. so far i’ve lost 20 pounds ��

  • I love these tips and I watched you 6 week body transformation and that has helped a lot thank you so much �� PLC for the win �� I go to PLC Coomera and love it

  • Try boxing… its fun and the weight falls off.. also apps help with the eating healthy. I used to hate exercise and had all of the negative thoughts but once you start seeing change in your body more motivation will come ❤❤����started at 216 and one week later im at 202… cut out soda drink water and keep moving!

  • I know this was posted a while ago so hi! Um whenever I try to eat healthier I always end up binging and that just discourages me SO much

  • I think the last one is one of the MOST important things to remember!.. It’s so much easier to stay motivated when you have others around you who encourage you to stay on track and always strive for new goals!

  • Does anyone else basically live in leggings and the “wear active clothing to motivate yourself” rule not really apply to your life? ����
    Thanks for the tips!

  • You LITERALLY made me start my very own fitness Journey last October 23rd and now i’m on my 12th day of doing my weekly Workouts THANK YOU ❤️❤️❤️

  • Hi Mary, I like your channel, you inspire me.
    I want to ask you if you can put Spanish translation in your videos.
    I’m sure, that way you could have many more Spanish-speaking followers.
    I will be very grateful, God bless you.

    Hola Mary, me gusta tu canal, me inspiras.
    Quiero preguntarte si puedes poner traducción al español en tus videos.
    Estoy segura que de esa manera podrías tener muchos más seguidores de habla hispana.
    Estaré muy agradecida.
    Que Dios te bendiga.


  • I’ve already changed my diet and started home workouts but there’s only so much I can do at home. I’ve been researching and researching and still afraid to use my gym… I have bad anxiety and recently lost all my muscle in the last five years due to Gastro Paresis. I’m not use to being out of shape and it’s so hard for me to decide on workouts and I get nervous and forget what To do. Xoxoxo I already notice less anxiety and more energy and less bloating which is wonderful!

  • This is the realest talk anyone has ever had with me about my weightloss. Everything you’re saying is true. I’ve hovering at this little 5 lbs weightloss for a month. I keep trying to convince myself that I’m trying hard but deep down i know I’m not living right. Lol

  • Make yourself a workout schedule and try to vary your workouts. A workout buddy will also hold you accountable and make working out fun!

  • Hello i love your video its has some amazing points on a heather way of living. I have to say i’m a bit of a health freak when it comes to eating but one thing i always think about is which you said previously in your video, always put protein carbs and fat into your meal. Thanks for an inspiring video can’t wait to see what videos you have next.

  • 100% useful and benefitial content. I love the diet strategy you use and making people feel comfortable and confident in weight loss

  • At my university there is a nutritionist we can talk for for free, I had no idea! Everyone that goes to school should definitely look into asking around their campus if they’re interested!

  • you are my far my most favourite Fitness influencer Mari… i love that your content is about aesthetics, sustainability and most importantly, mental health…. you’re doing great sis!!!

  • Jeanine you’re so motivating. Thank you so much for this video! As someone who is in the middle of their fitness journey, this really helped to hear:)

  • Hey guys,
    I recently posted my fitness journey (and only actually recently started my channel) and it would mean so so much if you could watch it! xxx

  • My knee is injured, my ankle is injured and my elbow is injured so I cannot do any strength or cardio for the next few months. What do you recommend I do so that I come back strong to working out again?

  • Love this video and how encouraging you are! Hope you keep giving out advice and sharing your thoughts because, girl, we need them ����‍♀️������

  • The hardest part for me has been the diet, not so much working out. After a while though, it became evident that the things I thought I could NOT possibly ever cut out of my diet weren’t really important and after a while I stopped craving the things I knew were bad for me. It didn’t happen overnight however, and I struggled a lot, especially since I found myself in situations where I was sorrounded with sweets. My point is that your mind is very powerful and motivation is all it takes to achieve a healthier lifestyle, you’ll be surprised by how many thing become possible once you gain a little faith in yourself and become stronger mentally. Sometimes it seems impossible, but just keep going and don’t give up. It’s ALL worth it in the end:)

  • Self talk is soo important. Ppl have to realize it has an impact on everything. Its like some of the shit we tell ourselves is so harmful. If you had a friend and they said the same shit you tell yourself you’d be like ohh no honey you are fabulous. You have to be the one to build yourself up���� not only that but if you’ve failed before its ok cuz you’ve gotten up and tried again. Its about progress not perfection.

  • Okay I straight up just got a kick in the rear on a lot of stuff, im binge watching you, subscribing and sending my people here.�� You totally kicking it and got the receipts

  • Thats awesome! Your definitely an inspiration! This is something that has helped me lose weight and keep it off. I hope it helps others do the same ��.

  • Its so easy to lose weight in your 20’s! I am 40 and when I was 20 it was simple. 2 kids later and now 40 and it is HARD. Wish there were more vids of people who actually have a tough time losing weight.

  • Can you do a video on how to start your fitness journey for teens? I really enjoy working out and I do a lot of sports, but I always feel like crap in the off-season when I’m not doing anything. My older sister has a gym membership, but because I am only 15 I can’t drive myself to the gym. I was wondering if you could do a video on how I can start working out st home until I get my liscense and maybe even add some reccomendations on how teens can eat healthy at home and make do with the food that their parents buy because I can’t buy my own food yet.

  • I am experiencing so much of the same things in your journey with both mental health and dropping out of school! It is really crazy how similar our experiences are. A question I have is what do you suggest is the best way to know what to eat for your macros? How did you educate yourself on that or did someone help you?

  • I’ve always tried to make every change at once, and if I failed I gave up immediately. Lately I’ve been trying small changes every day, and once I master those I move on to the next. Little steps are the way to go!

  • I came across your channel and im so happy that I did!!! you are so cute and genuine!! im from Dallas tx too!!! I am looking to start working out so I am looking forward to your fitness vids!!:)

  • been a while. been dealing with wrist pain, and chronic tiredness. Diet has still been fine. But looking forward to the baby steps towards a strong and healthy body that will serve me my whole life. Thanks for the pep talk.

  • I have been in Colorado for 3 years now and love how much I can do here and stay active. I am down 80lbs and still have more to go.

  • I just started my journey and I am SO HUNGRY and j fotm want to give into my cravings bc I feel like I’m slowing my progress.. Is this a universal experience?

  • I have been struggling with an eating disorder. I am so tired of being obsessed with food. I want to be healthy and this is the beginning. I want to start fresh and finally achieve a HEALTHY and fit body.

  • 1. cut out alcohol 2. put on activewear (at least once a day) 3. always learn new things (information you want to learn) 4. cut out (refined) sugar 5. Learn moderation 6. Surround yourself with people who also value health

  • so im 100% alcohol virgin but im still over the weight i want to be. 5ft 120 lb. used to be 130. lost 10 lb over a span of 2 yrs. i’d like to be 100. but my weight has plateud.

  • I think instead of doing this tough love thing we should tell people to work on themselves and see what the root is of their traumas and negativity… beating someone down may work for some but you could literally trigger them into getting worse. People with a healthy mindset who don’t have chronic mental illness that literally destroys others’ brains also need to check their own privilege and not act like others are less than or incapable. Tips on overcoming negativity and bad self talk is better (in my opinion) than condescending talk lol. Just my 2 cents! I see that you just mentioned a therapist so that’s good.

  • I love that idea. Get comfortable in the gym. Go 5 to 10 minutes everyday. I love it. Haven’t heard anyone else give this advice. But I love it. Wow Baseball hat is a great idea too. Thank you girl. Thank you.

  • A lot of people today are trying to figure out the best method to lose weight. Then again, having the ability to discover a diet plan that can work for you is hard to find.

    Ps this video is everything I needed

  • This video has been super helpful man, seriously. If I had to pick one thing from it, it would definitely be “Training for Strength”. ¿Would you say there is much difference between training for strength with a 5×5 rep scheme with quite a bit of weight and training with a 4×8 rep scheme with a somewhat more manageable weight? My dips are currently 35lbs 4×8 and my chin ups are 25lbs 4×8 but I´ve been wondering if I would be able to get stronger faster if I trained in the 5×5 fashion with a bit heavier weight.

  • These are really good tips, and the one where you put on workout clothes at some point during the day is really effective in my experience.

  • My self talk at this point is…girl…let’s go because you WANT this…you NEED this! I WILL do this. Yes…ya gonna be sore—but the hurt is growth. Life hurts and you don’t quit life—so LET’S GO!

    I believe!

  • Some great tips, many thanks, walking is a great start for a weight loss journey. I started walking initially, then moved onto yoga which i absolutely love. Have lost quite a few pounds with exercise and watching some bits that I eat.

  • Okay. I have decided that because my name is Christen I have the ability to do anything in the world. I don’t know any of us that can’t. I’ve lost ten so far

  • i’m in a weird place with my fitness journey, i feel like, for lack of better term i’ve “let myself go” but your videos inspire me so much and not only that but they also teach me that life is about balance and having freedom with food, thank you xx

  • Really needing motivation right now I have wanted to start my journey for a while now but I keep making excuses so this is really helpful cuz it shows you don’t need a new year to get going

  • Weightlifting is one of the best things to do to lose weight. You’re breaking down your muscles so you’re burning calories during the workout and you’ll continue to burn calories after the work as your body is working to recover your muscles. Cardio doesn’t do this exact thing. Cardio is important, but incorporating HIIT in your weight lifting exercises is probably the best

  • I expected this video to be the over-said, super common “calories in calories out” “track your meals” “exercise”… these suggestions were fresh and really well explained! Looking for more ways to help my personal training clients. Thanks for making this video!!

  • yo! Girlfriend!! your energy and personality is SO UNMATCHED!! i effing looooove you!! keep. comin. with. itttttt, Britt!!! Loved this video!!

  • I just made the closest thing to a home gym that I could. I give you so much credit for going to the gym. I’ve tried for years to get comfortable and no go. No biggie. I’ve started really training hard at home and I’m seeing great results, even while pregnant ��

  • HAHA yes, same!!! Being in your 20’s but actually acting like a 70 year old! hahaha Im still obsessing over your hair!!! Your gorgeous! xxx

  • That’s it! Im cutting out all soda/juice TODAY!!!!! I CANNOT CONTINUE TO BE AN OBESE COLLEGE GIRL!�� I want to lose 40-45lbs by my birthday(12/10) and I will be 135-140lbs by STICKING TO MY DAMN LIFE DIET������

  • I wear a lot of active wear because i have then smaller loads of laundry lol
    I usually wear the activewear i know ill be using the next time in the gym as pyjamas, at home or just to wear out when i dont have to go somewhere important. This reduces laundry by a lot

  • I was skeptic about Next Level Diet because I thought that I would have to eat only broccoli to lose weight. I am eating only food I like and still losing weight.

  • I needed this video. Going to get a scale and start my journey by the end of this week!!. I will check bk in weekly for anyone curious

  • Sis, you said that, everything, from the commitment, to self talk, to application, to food being comfort, this message really resonated with me.

  • I love this video. I LOVE THIS DAMN VIDEO. Thank you, thank you so much for being straight on. Nobody else is like this and it’s much more inspirational.

  • Dude! Please don’t tell me NOT to compare my self to you, standing there topless flexing crazy ass muscles.:P
    Of course I’m gonna compare my self to you. It’s human nature.
    Instead I always have to tell my self, it took you years, and not just 2, to get you where you are today.
    I have found it to train easier with eyes closed. I blend out the visual “noise”. Just listening to what my body tells me when I’m pushing the edge.

  • I know a lot of people get pissy about sponsors, so @ anyone who thinks this: I HIGHLY recommend downloading either audible or Libby (which is essentially a free way to get audio books, though it requires a library card). Listening to audio books is a great way to get yourself into exercising, especially if you don’t let yourself listen to any of the books you’re listening to when you’re not exercising!

  • Thanks to you, I enjoyed this video and wanted to share this related topic that was interesting to me with your dear ones. It may be very appealing to you.

  • Please slow down when you speak. You have so many good tips and are so knowledgeable but, sometimes it’s hard to keep up. ☺️ I really enjoy your health and fitness videos!

  • I find list really helpful, so I did this. not sure if someone else already has.
    1. Giving up alcohol
    2. Putting on active wear once per day
    3. Audiobooks for information
    4. Cut out refined sugar
    5. Learn moderation
    6. Find and surround yourself with supportive people who value health

  • Loved this, and I’m going to try and keep it all in mind. I’d be interested in how to work through a plateau in gains, when it seems that I’ve been stuck on a move for months that I still can’t do.

  • Spitting facts sis! No one can want it for you you have to work for it yourself you have to want it more then you’ve ever wanted anything! You have to pick your hard
