Can you tone your tummy and still have a life?

Can you lose weight and still have a life? I got chatting to one of the ladies on our Fit For Life Body Transformation Programme about this.

How previously, she would put things off or feel anxious about starting a new ‘diet’ until:

* holidays were over

* Birthday was out of the way

* Christmas was out of the way

* Weekend away with hubby was out of the way


etc..

And it begs the question:

“If you feel anxious about holidays, weekends, and social event, do you need a new “diet”?’

After all, is this going to be sustainable?

Will you keep the weight off?

Now, I know these questions are unhelpful so here’s some tips for you:

1) Just start whatever fitness / healthy eating thing you want to try today…even if you have a holiday / social event etc. starting afterwards will probably mean you’ll have more body fat to lose (which will make it harder) ​​​​

2) Identify where you social events are at the start of the week and try to plan around it:


Example:

When me and Mrs Fruci have a curry night (once a week usually lol), I’ll make sure I have higher protein and veggie based meals to keep me full up whilst lowering my food intake to allow me to enjoy my curry later. It might look like this:

Brekkie: Greek yoghurt and berries OR an omelette if I have more time

Lunch: ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Meat / fish based salad OR some rotisserie chicken if on the go 

Then…

The curry!

^^^ and I might even have a yoghurt / whey protein shake  / an apple before I order so I’m not absolutely starving ​​​​​​and order more than I need!

My main point?

Just start today.

And if you need a done-for-you plan so you can take the guesswork out of knowing what and when to eat and start today?

You might be interested in my 14-Day Fit For Life Summer Kickstart.

I can’t say you’ll definitely get the same results as the other ladies ​​​​​​​​​have done here, but what I will say is that the ONLY real secret is that it’s personalised for you and your lifestyle so you can do it even when you have the BBQs and social events..

Because life is for living, after all. That’s why I’m in bed by 9pm at the weekend lol

Anyway, if you think this might be  the kickstart you need for the Summer?
