Abs Are Created in the Kitchen

As we head into the weekend, let's have a quick chat about fitness and good nutrition. Both are VERY important to our general good health. However, you'll see the biggest changes in your body, when you make big changes in the kitchen.

If you keep healthy food in the refrigerator & pantry, you'll eat healthy food.

If you take a few extra minutes to prep for your meals in advance, you'll be less likely to head to the drive-thru for a quick fix... because guess what... it will already be prepared.

If you carry healthy snacks in your purse, you'll be less likely to overeat because you're hangry.

Planning our meals & snacks ahead of time can help us with better eating habits.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but abs are created in the kitchen. So all the cardio & crunches in the world won't flatten your belly until you're also removing those high fat foods & sweet treats from your diet. In fact, by not giving your body healthy foods as fuel, you'll likely have less energy to even devote to your workout!

Let's try to change our mindset this year.

Instead of telling yourself... "I EARNED that {insert fav guilty pleasure} when I did that workout"... or "I better double up on classes this week BECAUSE of what I ate over the weekend"... let's start thinking of our workouts as a celebration for what our body can do for us... not as punishment for what we did with our diet. Let's stop thinking of food as a reward for our successes in the gym.

Everything in moderation and YES of course it's ok to have some treats once in awhile! But when those treats are more of a daily thing than an occasional splurge, you'll be less likely to see changes in your body as you continue on with your fitness journey.

They say... whoever "they" are... it's 70% diet, 30% gym.

Take some extra time & care for YOU.

YOU are worth it & your body will thank you for it!!
