The Stay Fit Mom coaches raved about this Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup in our chat group a few weeks ago. I didn’t even realize it was such a hit!! This one dropped in our exclusive Ninja Insider archives over a year ago, and today it’s debuting on the blog for all of you! Dust off your soup pot or pressure cooker, it’s soup season and we’re ringing it in with Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup!
When you’re facing stressful situations caring for yourself, through diet and exercise, can be the first thing people let go of. This month’s client spotlight, Lucy, found a way to prioritize the health of her daughter who was undergoing intense medical treatment while macro counting herself. Let’s hear how she did it!
I’ve been meaning to put together this RV renovation blog post for a few months now. Things have been busy and I’m finally getting around to it. So many of you have followed along on our camp adventures for several years now, and celebrated with us when we got to upgrade to a motor home this past Spring. We’ve always dreamed of having a motor home, but wanted to make sure we would get great use out of it before taking the plunge.
Have you ever seen someone make a miraculous transformation only to regain it all back? Losing weight means very little if you can’t KEEP it off. I’d rather see a client lose 5 pounds and KEEP IT OFF for 6 months than lose 15 and gain it all right back. Anyone can put themselves through a severe calorie restriction for a time, but our bodies simply can’t sustain this. The more weight you lose, the more your body will eventually want to compensate by eating more, because our bodies will always be fighting for maintenance. In addition, severe calorie restriction leads to muscle loss which can cause our metabolism to slow, which makes that rebound weight gain surge, long after your “diet” is over and you’ve returned to your typical eating pattern.
One of our FAVORITE things to do here at Stay Fit Mom is to EDUCATE women. The world of nutrition and exercise can be an incredibly confusing and disorienting place with so-called “experts” who proclaim OPPOSITE things: Don’t eat carbs! Don’t eat fat! Do 90 minutes of cardio a day! Don’t do a minute of cardio, only lift weights! Only eat in a six hour window to lose weight! You have to eat MORE to lose weight! SO CONFUSING right???
