I struggled with my weight in 2020.
I haven’t always looked like the photo on the right, which was taken just a couple of weeks ago. Let’s just say, the start of 2020 was rough for me.
Photo on the left… I went through a really stressful time that included writing a macro cookbook, coaching 1:1 clients, studying for the FDN certification, and spending hours on the treadmill. The combination of these stressors took a serious toll on my health and waistline. I gained nearly 15 pounds in just 3-4 months!
And my story is not unique. Women fall into the overtraining trap far too often and wonder why they are struggling with their weight.
In order to go from the picture on the left to the picture on the right, I had to do three things:
Change my mindset
Change my nutrition
Change my workouts
Changing my workouts proved to be the icing on the cake that really catapulted the way my body looked and felt.
I went from being a Cardio Queen at Orangetheory to using heavy (for me) weights. Strength training became my new go-to workout of choice and it showed.
The stress and strain of hours of cardio took a toll on my body, and I didn’t even get the lean figure I wanted to show for it. It was so frustrating!
After incorporating strength training and plenty of rest days, I started to lose the weight I had gained. And I was working out less than ever before!
Using heavy (for you) weights enhances the toned look you want while giving you the muscle you need to boost your metabolism and change your body composition for the better!
