Thursday, September 4th- Joann's food and exercise diary
I always try to eat every 2. 5- 3 hours. Try to eat healthy fats, protein, and carbs. Stay away from processed food. Yes, I eat sugar but I watch how much I eat. If I eat too much sugary food , I try not to eat any snacks or sweets the next day. Moderation is key.

I like what Emily Skye says below ....
Emily Skye--Being healthy and fit is not just about how you look, it's about how you feel and how your mind and body functions each day.
You hear people say how hard it is to get started but the hardest part is the start, it does get easier as cravings that are caused by high sugary food go away because you're not eating them. You actually start enjoying food more and healthy food becomes tastier as your taste buds change. You become addicted to being healthy and active. Your mind becomes clearer and happier, your bloating goes down and you feel lighter have more energy.
The reason why it's so hard to start is because;
- You are making changes in your life that brings you out of your comfort zone. Any change is hard because as humans we tend to feel comfortable when things stay the same and change can scare us.
- You may not believe that you can actually achieve the results you're after. Or you make excuses as to why you can't do it.
- You don't think it's working and give up before you actually get to see results.
- When making changes with your diet and training you need to be keep yourself motivated each day, be organized and have structure otherwise you'll probably end up throwing in the towel.
If you want to feel your best and be happy and confident in yourself, then you need to make some positive changes and commit yourself so you can be!
