How you start losing weight? i'm started going to gym one month ago but i don't see a progress :((

Patience. Weight loss doesn’t happen overnight or even in a months time. Keep doing what you’re doing and eventually you will see results.

Whoever said before and afters were stupid … This is what keeps me going! The left is me around 2 years ago before I had ever started working out. Not large, chunky yes. And the right is me last week. I’ve gone from a size 8/10 to a size 4/6 and I feel unreal. Yes it’s possible to feel super and completely confident at any size, but for me, my current size makes me shine. I love being able to wear whatever I want when I go out and I just feel healthier. All this is simply from hard work at the gym and eating right in the kitchen. Anyone can do it if you put your mind to it! My ask box is ALWAYS open to any questions anyone may have :)

What do you eat in an average day and what does your workout routine look like?

  • I DO NOT COUNT CALORIES. Yes. You read it right. It’s far to exhausting to count every single calorie that I put in my mouth since I am literally always eating. If I want pancakes with maple syrup, whipped cream and berries, I’ll eat them. I do not starve myself in the slightest. There are some days where I will come home from the gym at 11PM and make myself a steak, green beans and roasted red peppers. If I’m hungry, I eat. The key is moderation. Yes it’s okay to have pancakes, but it’s not okay to have pancakes every day of your life. I like to ensure that my diet is balanced and for the most part healthy. I love making myself chicken and steak with rice, vegetables or some sort of side. I try to avoid all processed foods (with the exception of the occasional McDonalds on cheat days). I also have not had a sip of pop in a really, really, long time. Cutting out the gross sugars from sweet drinks and candy has made a large difference for me. In terms of alcohol, when I go out, the only thing I drink is vodka sodas. Personal preference, but I like how there’s no sugar and it pretty much tastes like water. Water .. I drink a lot of it. With every meal at all times of the day. So if I were to lay out a typical day for you in regards to my diet it would consist of breakfast (coffee, yogurt and some berries), snack (usually whatever I can find in my fridge), lunch (leftovers, almost always a protein and some veggies), dinner (I go all out, can be pasta, a meal sized salad, steak, chicken, etc.), followed by bedtime.
  • Half of the time that I go to the gym, I have no idea what workout I’m going to do until I get there. I like to break my days of the week into muscle groups. I often switch up which day is which just because it gets boring walking into the gym every Monday and working Biceps and Triceps. As for the days, I divide my body up into muscle groups consisting of: Biceps and Triceps, Shoulders, Back and Chest, Legs, and Abdominals. I assign each muscle group to a day of the work and workout whatever I feel like doing that day. I ensure that Abdominals are added into every workout every day to develop them as best as I can. I won’t post a huge list of what each day consists of, but if you’d like to see tons of workout plans and use those as a place to start, check out BodyBuilding.com and hit ‘workout plans’. Or you can check out @katyheanfit on Instagram. She posts some workouts and I love love love them! 

If I haven’t answered your question yet, don’t worry! My ask box is overflowing with a lot of similar questions so I plan on just answering them all in one large post later after the gym! Thanks and keep them coming! :)

do you have any suggestions of how I could work on my arms without weights? you look fab btw, you should be very proud of yourself :))))

Thank you! Arms for me consists of some weight work. But you can also get stuff done without them. Try doing push ups and chin up (assisted or not). You can also do tricep dips and bench dips. If you have resistance bands, you can make a little shoulder press. There’s tons of exercises out there that don’t involve actual weights! :) 

Did your weight go up and down or did you steadily loss weight and/or inches every month from eating right and working out?
- Anonymous

I was in college when I started working out seriously, so naturally my weight fluctuated. Now that I’m done and don’t really have all the stressors of school around me, I find my weight steadily declining. I never measured inches per se, but I just noticed when my pants started falling off lol

Will drinking lots of green tea accually make a difference when trying to loose fat?
- Anonymous

It might make you pee a lot but all the times that I’ve drank green tea, I really didn’t see a loss in fat. 

Do you wear any jewelry on your feet? Anklets, toe rings? What is your opinion on them?
- Anonymous

I have an anklet on my right ankle that’s been around the world with me. it’s one of those friendship ones. I’ve never taken it off and it’s been hanging in there for a solid four years. Other than that, nothing. I think toe rings feel funny and I have the skinniest toes known to man. 

Can I lose around 50-60 pounds through exercise 30-60 minutes a day times a week plus clean eating ? Idc how long it takes as long as I eventually get there.. I feel like no matter what I do nothing will work :( I know it's possible but it also feels like it's not. Does that routine sound good?

I’m not one to tell you if you can and can not lose weight. Clean eating is a big thing in losing weight, yes. And working out is the other big thing in losing weight. So with the right combination you should be able to lose weight. I wouldn’t dwell on the number of pounds you wish to lose. Just get into a routine and when you start seeing results, you’ll feel amazing.

I do cardio & eat clean. What im having problems with is strength training. Idk how to go about starting it. Any advice for a beginner? What did you do?
- Anonymous

My cousin was the one who got me into strength training a little while ago. What I found helpful was downloading the BodyBuilding.com app onto my phone. It has tons of different exercises that you can do and it lets you filter out exercises by muscle group. Another thing that I did when I first started was their 4 week programs for beginners. It pretty much taught me certain workouts and how to properly do them. Now I’ve worked up to my own workouts and what works for my body, but until then, online workout plans work wonderfully!

Way to go girl! What are some typical meals you eat through the day?
- Anonymous

Thank you, and I really eat whatever I want, I just try and avoid certain foods. I see nothing wrong with having a little cheat day every now and then as long as I’m in the gym the next day. Typical meals consist of a lot of salads and fresh fruit. Also, for me, a big thing is home made meals that aren’t things you just pop in the microwave.
