Your body cannot function properly on excessively low calorie/starvation diets long term. This is one of the many reasons fad and starvation diets result in fast weight loss and then almost immediate rebound of weight gain (plus MORE). Do yourself and your body a favor and feed it a wide variety of the RIGHT foods, exercise and keep yourself hydrated. You will feel so much better and be able to build a healthy, fit body!
Yesssss. It makes me so happy to see posts like this because the amount of pro-ana and ED-type stuff that comes up on the fitness tags on here gets to me.
Like this if you’re a fitness (NOT a thinspo/ana) blog. I need new people to follow!
Looooove this stuff, I need to pick up a bag of the apple crumble flavor
Perfect for snacking without ANY GUILT. I tried that carrot cake and fell in love. You can find this at ANY Nature store or larger outlet. Also, you can order online!
Friday: Day off working out, also had sort of cheat day since I had olives, wine, cheese etc with dinner.. and lots of baguette. Whatever, I was good all week, one day won’t kill me.
Saturday: Ate decently clean, though I wish I had eaten more — just had 2 pieces of toast with PB and a smoothie for breakfast/lunch (at like noon haha) and a salad with lemon basil quinoa for dinner. At the gym I did active rest, just 20 minutes on the bike, with my heart rate around 120 bpm for the whole time. Before that I did a vo2 max fit test and got a score of 45.8 mL/kg/min, which is apparently in the 90th percentile for my age group, so I was happy with that!
Sunday: Ate clean so far—I had 2 pieces of toast with PB for breakfast, along with a smoothie, and an apple with a Tbsp of PB when I got home from my workout. For dinner I had a salad with a piece of grilled salmon, then about 200 cals worth of organic granola for desert. All in all it’s about 1500 cals, I think.
My workout today was a 2-mile run/walk on the track, running 1/2 a lap and then walking half a lap. My running portions averaged around 7 mph, so I feel good about that. Then went to the gym, did a quick warmup on the bike and did a legs/glutes workout:
3x20 glute bridge (unweighted)
3x15 Leg press @ 175lb, focusing on glute activation
3x15 Glute press @ 100 lbs
2x15 Goblet squat w barbell @ 20 lbs
I also went through and scheduled all my workouts for next week, I am definitely gonna push hard this week!
I need to fill up my dash with some new motivational photos, tips, and advice!
