We rarely spend the holidays at home. You’ll usually find us in Utah at my parent’s home. One year we took our rower, another we took one of the bikes. We’ll only be going for 4-5 days this year so no plans of taking any extra workout equipment. Most likely we’ll be sticking with body weight exercises like this one.
We have published thousands of blog posts, videos, and emails, but it all comes down to this simple (not to be confused with easy) tip. CONSISTENCY. That’s it.
If you can’t consistently implement your nutrition plan, whatever it may be, it will not work. An inability to consistently implement macros long term could be an indication that you’re not getting enough. Read more about that HERE.
Many people used to believe that counting macros was just for body builders and that it couldn’t/ shouldn’t be used for someone who has a significant amount of weight to lose. In fact, we often get emails from clients that ask this sincere question,
“Can you help me even though I have over 70 lbs of weight to lose?”
One of the most important things you can do for yourself is exercise at least 3 times a week. You don’t have to run several miles or do Crossfit, but you should do something. Find what you like and make it fun. We happen to love Crossfit style workouts, so that’s what we’ve got for you here. Find so many more here.
Searching the food database in MyFitnessPal can be very overwhelming, especially when you’re new to tracking your macros. And SPOILER ALERT, not all foods in the database are accurate. Anyone can create new foods in the database and share it with all users, so you really have to be careful. One of the reasons we use and prefer MyFitnessPal over other macro tracking apps is because of the large food database. It’s both a blessing and a curse.
It’s not like I can call this macro friendly salsa, most salsa is. There is something special about fresh homemade salsa though. I’m considering buying some cute mason jars and giving this out to friends, family, and neighbors for Christmas this year. THIS would be more macro friendly than the usual cookies or candy we typically get (Which I’m not complaing about, I love holiday goodies, but sometimes we get a lot!).
