Trying to be Fab4 to the Core

So it’s been a whole week since my last blog and I thought I would just check in and let every one know what I’ve been up to! 

I started a new job 2 weeks ago and it’s been an adjustment, there’s a lot to learn (which is good) and very challenging!

Im also now I’m taking extra time to focus on myself spiritually, mentally and of course physically. 

I’ve become an avid reader of nutrition blogs and I discovered a little gem called ‘mindbodygreen’ which is very informative and helpful when it comes to food, nutrition and a host of other topics.

Mindbodygreen led me to an amazing podcast from American nutriotist Kelly Leveque who talks about stabilising blood sugars and why you should focus on diets but changing your eating habits for a healthier you. I recently bought her book Body Love and so far I’m impressed.

The book isn’t shoving do’s and don’t’s down your throats rather explaining what types of food does to your body and why it’s better to be informed about what you are eating and why. 

I personally like her style of getting her message across and I’m willing to try her way out. She has a thing called the ‘Fab4’ which is fibre, protein, fat & greens. Kelly believes these 4 should make up all your meals so sustain satiety and a level blood sugar, in turn keeping you healthy and able to lose weight if you wanted to. 

I definitely am up for changing my nutritional habits in the way Kelly suggests so I can be the healthiest version of myself. 

Gym wise I’ve actually wanted to go every day this week but because of work I haven’t been able to. This morning I ran which was nice because I enjoy running but going to the gym I will definitely work on but I’m not going to beat myself up for not going. 

I’ve also lost 6kg!!! Which is good and I hope to keep losing weight.
