I read a really interesting article about Jennifer's workout and lifestyle changes to get the body she has. i really liked the points her nutritionist and workout instructors made, because they actually make sense, unlike many "diets" that are available online. I have decided to start working out and eating more healthy than I have been doing until now. I was really busy in 2016 which lead to eating unhealthy food with little time for meals and a lot of stress, which lead to stress eating and making poor lifestyle decisions! Needless to say I haven't been felling the best about myself! Fortunately I have a really cool roommate and with her we will start going to the gym again! So here are the few steps I plan on following for the next months to come, and hopefully my eating habits and lifestyle habits will change forever after that!!
Step 1: Staying Hydrated
This point is usually the hardest for me! I always forget to drink, sometimes I go a few days without drinking any water- I just drink coffee or tea! Dalton Wong, who is J.L's former trainer believes in salt water, but in drinking it, and he taught J.Law to mix a little salt water in with regular water, lemon water, and coconut water throughout her day. I will also try that- though it sounds pretty gross haha!
Step 2: Tiny Tea from Your Tea
I got the 28 day detox tea, which helps with weight loss, but also cleaning the body and increasing the energy levels. I have been waiting to try this for a really long time, because it is 28 days and you drink it 3 times a day it was hard to find a month when I would be at home for such a long time at once!
Step 3: Controlling Portions
I think this step is the most important! I am not a big fan of diets, that tell you what you can and can't eat, so seeing this makes more sense for me- I can still eat what I would do always ( of course I won't be going to McDonald's and places like that, but I won't limit my self too much. When I tried doing a strict diet I would usually loose it after a few weeks and attack the fridge haha.
Step 4: Working out with Kayla Itsines
I am sure most of you have heard about Kayla and her Bikini Body Guides! I must say I am a big fan, because I followed it maybe a year ago and the results were insane. To be honest it is not easy to do the workout plan, because your body gets really sore, but it is so worth it! The workout plan consists of 3 months work of exercise and you go to the gym to work out 3 times a week for 30 min, which is manageable so there are no excuses- it is also possible to do some of it at home!
Step 5: No Alcohol and Proper Sleep
These two are also really important! Being at University, alcohol is a daily part of life- so I need to cut it out completely. As for sleep, I wrote about how to get a better sleeping rhythm HERE. With school starting and having a lot of work, I slowly slipped into a bad sleep schedule, going to bed late and waking up tired in the morning so have to work on that as well.
I hope these few things will help you guys out! I know how hard it is to stay motivated and be persistent when it comes to healthy living- but this time I am doing it for real! I really believe I will finally succeed at having a healthier lifestyle then I have now! The full article about J. Law's plan isHERE.
