I know it can be hard. Weight loss is a daunting journey. Patience can
run low. Progress may be slow. The HOW is often overwhelming.
I talk to so many women who tell me they've stopped eating carbs or
they're eating less than 1000 calories...
Although several of them have experienced some amount of weight loss, each ALWAYS express they are still unhappy with their results or have stopped seeing results after a few months. Many of them are fatigued, low energy, in a brain fog, and just not feeling themselves.
When you don't consume enough calories your body goes into a starvation state.
When you start eating again, your body will store all the nutrients you're consuming instead of using those nutrients as energy and burning them off because it's preparing you for another starvation state.
This stage, (or cycle if you go days without eating and days with binging) will make weight loss really hard, will have your weight fluctuating drastically, or will provide unhealthy weight loss that isn't long term sustainable.
Additionally, under eating makes it really hard for your body to build muscle (Aka tone up). Most girls that come to me want tone and definition in their arms, legs and core.. you can't achieve this by under eating.
Carbohydrates are your main energy source. When you're not consuming a healthy amount of carbs you may be feeling drained, sluggish and in a brain fog. EVERY TIME someone tells me they've cut carbs I ask them if they feel this way and they all look at me and sigh "YES!"
Understanding the healthy amount and types of carbs to consume is the solution, not cutting them out altogether.
"But what about the Keto Diet, I see it working for so many?"
As with any diet, this plan is having you consume fewer calories than you burn off -- therefore you see weight loss.
If you're someone who consumes carbs at every meal and they're all the wrong type of carbs then suddenly you cut those foods out -- you're going to be consuming fewer calories and fewer bad carbs -- therefore you see weight loss.
Just the same as if we were to put you on a plan with the RIGHT carbs and have you consume the RIGHT amount of those carbs under the correct calorie intake for your body -- you will see weight loss while still consuming carbs.
What we strive to do with Get Fit Babe is help women with a simplified plan where they're eating their favorite foods in the correct portions to fuel their workouts and get long term sustainable results.
We help women calculate their caloric target according their current weight and weight loss goals and then it's adjusted according to the program they select.
(The number of calories varies for high intensity programs, resistance programs, or low impact programs.)
The process is simplified so there isn't much thought for the client. They plug their weight into an equation which gives them their calorie count.
From there they are told how many of each food group they should consume daily.
(For myself it's 3 veggies, 2 fruit, 3 carbs, 4 protein. A serving of each food group is measured out with a portion control container.)
They then select their favorite foods within each food group and we develop a meal plan from there.
What we don't do:
- We don't count calories, weigh food or use the MyFitnessPal app. Myself and many women tend to develop poor eating habits when focusing on a caloric number.
- We don't weigh ourselves daily -- Again bad habits.
- We don't starve ourselves, cut carbs or deprive ourselves of life's guilty pleasures (Wine and chocolate lover here!)
- We don't go at it alone.
We have accountability and support from a community of women!
In summary, consuming too few calories or depriving yourself of a food group will actually be detrimental to your weight loss results. It's important to follow a fitness and nutrition plan that factors in your specific body type and needs. This isn't cookie cutter one size fits all, it SHOULD be customized to you, your needs, your goals and your struggles.

So you took a mini hiatus..
Give Yourself Grace.
What the hell is the point in being down on yourself about falling off track? It's not helpful. It's not going to get you in the groove again being all negative and feeling guilty about what you did or didn't eat or how many workouts you got in.
So right now, take a deep breath and STOP the negative self talk.
That's step one.
Step two is the decision.
You have to decide you're in. In this step it's not about worrying which program you're doing, what you're going to eat, how your'e going to find time, SLOW DOWN and simply make up your mind that you're doing this.
Make up your mind that you're tired of feeling the way you feel and you're ready to fully commit to bettering yourself. This is the decision to change, to get back on the wagon.
*Side note: I have women ask me for help getting motivated all the time.. it doesn't matter what I say, post, or how on my workout game I am, there's nothing I can do to personally give someone motivation.
WHY? Motivation is within you, it's this decision and the reason behind why you're making the decision to change that should motivate you each day.
You can lead a horse to the water but you can't make him drink.
I can give you the tools, I can show you they work, I can share what's getting me going, but I can't workout for you and I'm not going to spoon feed you each meal.
It's this decision you make that's going to get you committed and motivated.
One day at a time.
We don't start an 80 day program worry about what the meal plan looks like on day 79.
Worry about day one.
Then when day two comes, figure out that day.
Sure we have a plan set for you so you know what workout to do each day and what to eat along with that workout.. but we don't think about tomorrow's dinner during breakfast today. One day at a time.
Getting your workout in today means DECIDING TODAY you're going to get it done.
Often times when we skip a workout we're looking forward or backward.
"Oh I got in a really good workout yesterday.." OR
"Oh I'll workout twice tomorrow."
One day at a time. Do it today without thinking of yesterday or tomorrow.
Taking it one day at a time will bring you to day 14 having completed two weeks of workouts. This consistency is establishing a habit in your routine. Avoiding temptations, getting in workouts, sticking to your meal plan, will become a habit because you've been consistent in each day you've committed.
The steps in between:
- 40 days = new shoes
- 60 days = TREAT YO SELF
If you're not already, and you wan't to work with me on all these steps and the steps in between I'll be your Get Fit Babe BFF virtually.
We have numerous programs and plans to fit your needs and content to make sure you remember where your motivation lies and how to stay on track.
