Never Give Up

When I weigh in for the week and the number on the scale isn't the one I wanted to see, I don't freak out over it, I don't beat myself up or decide to give up. Instead I take a good long look at myself in the mirror and find five things that I like about my body. Five things that I didn't like BEFORE I started eating and acting healthy and I remind myself that I'm happier than I've been in my life.

Allow for a recovery day after strength training

Treat your strength/weight training and the following recovery day as ONE WHOLE UNIT. The act of lifting weights is the challenge, the body's response is actually when progress is made and the muscles get stronger. If you overtrain, you actually can cause damage. So ST, feed your body the proper nutrients (including protein) within the hour afterward, and get enough rest in order to reach your full potential. Sleep is necessary!

Hunger is Fat Leaving the Body!

Ever hear "Hunger is fat leaving the body" or "Pain is weakness leaving the body"? It's true. Someone told me this, and I IMMEDIATELY started to enjoy feeling hungry. Once I was skipping unnecessary snacks, I weighed myself and couldn't believe I'd lost about 3 pounds in 2 days! ENJOY THE HUNGER!
