We all know I struggle, seriously struggle to stay on the healthy wagon. Recently I lost a stone in just over 4 weeks for a holiday. I managed this by doing a daily 15 minute HIIT session and by reducing my diet with the help of meal replacements packs. There I was in the zone and loving it. I know I was and I felt it too. But since my holiday I’ve been a bit meh! And totally over getting back in shape. Maybe because I’ve not got a goal to work towards. Maybe it’s just me not pushing myself enough. I really don’t know. But this is where Lighterlife Fast come in. With a helping hand to get me back on the straight and narrow and to help me find that balance in my diet. A new, healthier me with LighterLife Fast 5:2 is in my sights!
Why LighterLife Fast 5:2
Right now I am finding it really difficult to get my appetite under control. This is affecting my motivation to workout too. Managing only two workouts a week, if I’m pushing myself is making me feel rubbish. I am getting out of breath walking Olivia to school and I’m down right exhausted by the time I finish work. It’s a vicious cycle and one that is really easy to get lost in. Trust me I feel like I’m trapped in a revolving door. Where I know I need to lose weight and workout but I also want to sit here and stuff my face with junk food.
LighterLife Fast 5:2 is just two days a week of reducing your calorie intake. Two days. You can eat normally, not my normal, more sensible, the rest of the week. With packs specifically designed to make sure you get all the vitamins and minerals you need, everything is taken care of.
I have been supplied with the products to assist me with 4 weeks of fasting for 2 days a week. On these days I will be consuming only the LighterLife Fast meals, shakes, bars and pots specifically designed for this type of fasting.
What will it do for me?
It will, hopefully, keep me on the straight and narrow. Right now I can barely make it through to lunch time without wanting to binge eat. By limiting my meals for 2 days is exactly what the doctor ordered. Quite literally too. And with my body getting the nutrients it needs, and possibly not getting from a bar of chocolate, it will help me with that push I need to make changes to my diet the rest of the week too. I am a firm believer in making small steps and walking before you can run. Right now, LighterLife fast 5:2 is what I need to help me find my love for healthy eating and working out.
So this is a morale boost if you please, to prove to myself that yes, healthy eating does work. And no I don’t need to consume so many calories and exercise really does make you feel better. The kick start to getting healthy enough to not be out of breath after the slight incline on the walk to school, or the flagging in work post dinner thanks to a lunch lacking all the things I need.
I can change my diet, my health and my weight. I will make improvements to reduce the pain in my knees and back. By eating right and working out.
