I personally think all meals should be around the same-ish size. I like to keep my meals around 300-500 calories and have some 150-250 calorie snacks in the day.
After a gorgeous wedding, it’s time to hit the road for the annual Hansen Family lake house weekend! Bring on more sunshine and pool lounging #funeralformyfat
Aww mom and groom dance ❤️❤️ my little brother is all grown up. #funeralformyfat seems like just yesturday I was dressing you up as a Barbie @brycejeffers
It’s now been over a year since my tummy tuck. After losing 118 pounds I was left with loose skin, I had a tummy tuck and a thigh lift, and now 1 year later….left with nothing but a faded scar. I will take it! Lol it kinda makes me feel like a little warrior chic. And my abs, those are nice too!! Been busting my butt for a year to get some abs! Work hard ❤️ #funeralformyfat #tummytuck
It’s a healthy source of calories and protein, but taking it alone won’t cause weight gain. If you want to gain weight in a healthy manor you need to consume more calories than your burn. Typically people in this situation have incredibly fast burning metabolism so you will need to consume ALOT of calories. Like 3,500+ range. A fellow fitness instructor of mine was on a weight gain plan and he would carry around a jar of peanut butter with him wherever he went. Lol
Eat high calorie foods: nuts, peanut butter, protein bars, power bars, granolas, avocado etc.
Kickboxing is a great class! So is: Zumba, bootcamp, cycling, body pump, any Les Mills program, there are lots of great impacting classes that you can take and will change your life 8)
You’re not weak, you’re just having a rough time. Having a right time does not make you weak. Makes you human! You’re allowed to be upset, angry, frustrated, mad at the world, mad at yourself.
Be angry. And then decide to either remain angry forever….or….let that anger go and focus on what you can control.
I suggest looking into counseling too. Stressful/life changing changes should not be handled alone, seek out some additional help and someone who can help you find that internal will to make the positive changes you want to see.
Healthy lives are not created overnight, they are created by the little steps and actions we choose too make daily. Start today ❤️
Tagged by runnergirlwannabemama to post 6 photos that make me feel beautiful and amazing! Like her, I couldn’t choose just 6.
While going through my photos, I found that first one. I don’t think I have ever posted it, but you know what? Even though I’m almost 100 pounds heavier in that photo, I still think I was beautiful. There were numerous things I wanted to change about my body back then, but I never once felt like I hated it.
I used to be fat. I let myself gain more weight that I ever imagined, and then I finally started to change it. My lifestyle is completely different than it used to be, and I’m a different person. I am stronger, more confident, healthy, and happy. I needed this.
