How do you get motivation to exercise and eat right?
1. Start the very first day of the week with the right attitude:
Monday is GOOD! Do not think that Monday is dull, heavy and boring. Monday is a great day, because the week is by no means set and you can shape it any way you want. You have every opportunity in the world to get the best week of your life. My tip is to start your training on Monday, so you get a head-start with a clear conscience and lots of energy. Delaying this week’s first training day until Tuesday or Wednesday, will be even harder and you will set yourself for failure.
2. Set goals
may be very nice to have something to work towards, something to look forward to. Previously, my goal has been to fresh out of both the wedding and the honeymoon. Now that this is over, nor is my goal to keep me as I am, I train mostly because I love it and because my health is good for it. Whatever keeps you motivated: wedding, b-day or any other special date.
3. Find a form of exercise that suits you
Try out a little differently, so you’ll eventually notice what you are most comfortable with. Although, I often used to group lessons at the start. I could not handle working out in the hall and thought it was absolutely unbearable boring. Free weights and treadmill? No, thank you! Just like not everyone loves to listen Britney Spears, not everyone likes to run. Find something that works for you, something you enjoy and love to do.
4. Create a training contract with yourself
Everything is so much easier when you have a contract with someone, so why not make a contract with yourself? Write down what you will achieve by a certain date, number of days a week to train, sign, and hang on the fridge.
5. Log your sessions
Keep track of how often you train and how you train, invest for example in a training diary. Share your workouts on facebook or via other social media too. I think tumblr can be your best way to motivate yourself and log your workouts. You will find a lot of people that understand you and you can share your progress with us.
6. Always plan your meals
Dedicate your time to cook healthy meals and prepare snacks for yourself. If you still go to school you can always prepare some healthy and amazing snacks. No excuses!
7. Be positive!
Whatever you are doing, losing weight, gaining muscles you have to know that it takes time. This is not a 12 weeks diet plan, this is a lifestyle change. It takes time, you won’t be able to lose 100 pounds in a month or gain 10 pounds of mucles in 3 weeks. Be patient. Your hard work will pay off.

The other night, I found myself really wanting some cookies. What I didn’t want, though, was a 300 calorie cookie. A lot of “healthy” cookie recipes aren’t really healthy, or if they are, they taste like cardboard. Not the case with these cookies. I’m both happy and disappointed to share that these cookies didn’t make it through the night in my apartment. I’d planned to use them in lunches throughout the week, but that just didn’t happen. They were that good.
Healthier Chocolate Chip Cookies
3/4 cup oats
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons brown sugar
5 teaspoons white sugar
2 tablespoons chocolate chips
1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon milk
Preheat your oven to 375°.
Combine the oats, baking soda, salt, and sugars in a food processor and pulse until smooth. Stir in the chocolate, oil, and milk. Bake for 6 minutes on a greased cookie sheet. The cookies will harden as they cool.

I know why I left my blog for a while.. I hate how there’s always rules.. don’t eat this, dont eat that you will get fat.. pressured. Making out that loosing weight is so damn easy. It’s not it’s hard.. No one is around for the days you are craving that chocolate bar or bag of chips. scared of being judged..
I am doing this on my own is it’s soooo hard
