If you’re convinced you’re not losing weight because you can’t control yourself in the presence of cupcakes or anywhere near a kitchen after dinner you’re probably just doing it wrong.
“Willpower is a limited resource. It’s a lot like a muscle: there are only so many reps it can do before it gives out.”
Every girl who becomes a mother instantly appreciates her mother more, but I can’t tell mine that. I can’t ever send a…
“thanks for putting up with me” text or a “how did you do this?!?” call.
On particularly hard days at home with three babies I sometimes think of her and try to be as patient as she was and to see the light through the dark like she did so well. I thank her in my mind and hope she can hear me from heaven.
Just because the keto diet is trending doesn’t mean it’s right for you. High-waisted jeans are trending, too, but not everyone can pull them off. #amiright
Just this morning I got THREE success stories in my inbox from girls who’ve done my Cleanse 1) “I have never in my life not been hungry with all this boundless energy.” 2) “I lost 7 lbs, my skin looks better, and I’m feeling fresh AF.” 3) “Down 5 lbs and feeling SO much better.” When I feel like I’m posting to no one or that my work isn’t really helping as many people as I wish it would, these stories keep me going! I know how it feels to have food rule my life and it SUCKS! All I want is to help other women find the same food freedom and energy I’ve found Thank you for sharing your successes, ladies you’ve made me so proud
Here’s a little more info about it…
Oh, the struggle of parenting! Trying to raise a healthy kid in today’s processed world is NOT easy.
There are food commercials glamorizing sugar-coated cereal, packaging made just for kids in pretty colors and designs, everyone and their mothers trying to pass off candy and “treats” to kids that don’t belong to them, fast food commercials showing off “must-have” toys…there are so many things working against a mom just trying to raise her kid to eat real FOOD.
Whenever I bake a new treat I have the hardest time not devouring the entire thing myself (that’s not an exaggeration). If I love it, I’ll just keep eating it until it’s gone. As you can imagine, that’s not going to help me lose this baby weight any time soon. My advice:
“If you’re going to pig out, make it on something you won’t regret tomorrow.”
Since going Paleo back in 2012 I’ve learned I can borderline gorge myself on cookies, cakes and pies and not gain weight or fall into a carb craving cycle like I did in my “regular” brownie days.
