No stranger to giving it all you got, this everyday champ has great advice to give for staying motivated, strong and positive while obtaining that healthy body you’ve been working on for the new year. Now go put it into action!
1. Breakfast is key. “A good breakfast fuels you up and gets you ready for the day. Try incorporating a healthy protein into your morning, like eggs or turkey bacon.
2. Stay hydrated. “To keep up with a healthy lifestyle, h2O is a necessity. Try cutting sodas and juices out of your diet and replacing the with water. I like to flavor my water with lime, lemon or cucumber.
3. Make small changes. “Every step can make a positive contribution to your health and fitness. As a busy mom, I don’t always have time to go to the gym. I try my hardest to avoid elevators and take the stairs whenever possible. Instead of parking near your desired location, park far away and walk back.”
4. Go hard. “When you do get the chance to make it to the gym, go hard. I try my best to work as hard as I can for the small amount of time that I’m in the gym. When trying to lose weight after the birth of my daughter, I promised myself that I would give 100 percent from the moment I walked through the door until I left. The harder you work out, the more result you will see.”
