Fitness Friday: Athleisure

I’ve been in overeating mode since about..December. I work out at least 5 days a week, but I can’t help but indulge in every cookie, chip or burger presented to me. I’ve been in a perpetual state of bloat and I’m trying to figure out how to get myself out of this rut. 
Since I haven’t yet convinced myself to eat more vegetables and fruits, the next best thing for me has been meal replacement shakes. I’ve been doing this for breakfast or lunch and it’s easier now with the new protein shake place in town called Cheers. It actually fills me up! I’ve been trying to roast more vegetables too since this is my preferred way to eat them. I’ve also been buying sparkling water. I crave carbonation, which is why I drink so much pop. These are just tiny little baby steps to get myself in the right direction and be realistic. Any tips on eating healthier and smaller portions?

    Try to watch your everyday eating with MyFitnessPal app. It helps you understand how much you actually eat (calories) – maybe you donยดt get enough calories for healthy living? If itยดs so, your body starts to preserve everything you eat and so the weight is growing. Sounds unlogical but – been there, done that ๐Ÿ™‚
    I have written about my fitness and eating routines and principles in my blog, youยดre very welcome to read:

    Good luck ๐Ÿ™‚

    Here is my one tried and true method when I have fallen so far off reasonable eating, it sucks I'm not going to lie about that and a million people will tell you how bad of an idea it is BUT IT TOTALLY WORKS….. barely eat for only one day and drink a TON of water. Like I said, it totally sucks but I swear to you when you wake up the next day (and I'm not saying develop an eating disorder it is only one day) you will feel so much less bloated (TONS of water) you wont want to over eat. Oh yah, also a cup of "Smooth Move" tea that night will help out your morning routine. It's just kind of a mental "reset".

    Try eating really clean every other day. I think baby steps work best to get habits going. Keep going with the grilled veggies. Sometimes if u think of one ingredient you like, a healthy one, you can find recipes and ideas based on that. One the day that isn't so clean – it's not a binge day but it's not such a concern. You will start to feel better and it's not as overwhelming nor does it seem like SO much work when it's every other day AND you will be doing 50% better then you had been. Big improvement.
