In the coming weeks, President Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive order that will kick off the long, tangled process of dismantling President Barack Obama’s signature climate policy — the Clean Power Plan.
For the longest time I thought that losing weight “the healthy way” didn’t work for me, and never would. I told myself that because I was going to the gym everyday and not losing a pound, I needed to find other options. I tried cleanses, extreme workout plans, and when nothing worked I gave up. I thought that no matter what I did, I would never lose weight. Now, here I am after almost two months of regularly exercising and eating healthier, and I’m finally losing weight.
Cleanses and extreme diets don’t always work, and they aren’t always healthy. Over the past 2 months I have found that by changing up my exercise routine each week and eating more organic foods, I am able to lose weight, gain muscle, and be overall healthy. Please don’t resort to “quick weight loss options” just because you are frustrated. It takes time, patience, and hard work.
The moral of this post is that you need to find the right balance for YOU. Just exercising might not be enough. Eat more fruits and vegetables, eat less processed foods. Include strength AND cardio into your exercise routine. Find what works for you, and stick with it.
