Little Changes Yield BIG Results
When I first moved to Hollywood, CA and was finallyÂ ready and focused on myÂ weightloss, I didnâ€™t know where to start. I was very out of shape. Running was outÂ of the question, I got winded going up and down stairs, and I had a hard time doingÂ bodyweight exercises. So what to do when you feelÂ like the cards are stackedÂ against you? Walk! Get your body used to movement.Â I walked for miles every dayÂ and the weight started falling off. I added in some light weights and ab exercisesÂ after a while. In not time, I was turning my walksÂ into hikes in the amazing canyonsÂ in L.A. But what really helped was the small changes to my diet. I became moreÂ aware of labels, what and how much I was putting inÂ my body. Water and green teasÂ were my hydration instead of sodas and juices. I stopped cooking with salt and usedÂ honey and greek yogurt for baking, instead of butter and sugar. These smallÂ changes added up and within 6 months, I had lost almost 40lbs. Now, whenever Iâ€™mÂ coaching someone who feels lost, I tell them to start small. If youâ€™re just starting out,Â take a look at your nutrition and see what you canÂ start swapping out. Add 30Â minutes of walking a day into your routine and if you sit for long periods of time,Â break it up with squats or stretching. The littleÂ things make a body happy.
