I wanted to talk more about Macros today, lovely macros.

A lot of you have been personally messaging me (which I LOVE btw) I love interacting with all of you on a personal level.  That is what I do this for, that is what I LOVE.  Getting to talk with all of you, and helping you feel happy and healthy, and your best self!

Back to what I was saying, so you all have a lot of questions about macros.   I totally get it, as I had not a clue in the world what it even meant when I first started.

I did a post HERE explaining how macros work and what not.  Please please read it, if you’re confused. 

Everyone is different in what their body needs.  It depends on your personal goals, how much you move everyday.  How much muscle you have.  Each person burns a certain number of calories in a 24 hr period, depending on those things.

If you have more muscle, you’re going to burn through calories like crazy.   

I have been counting my macros for about 5 years now, and I recently upped mine to about 1900 calories a day.  I found myself to be STARVED all the time.  That was my bodies way of telling me to freaking EAT MORE.

So, you need to listen to your body.   I got way to obsessed with it for the first few years.   I personally didn’t find it to be healthy for myself, to be so obsessed with counting down to a the EXACT number every single day.. 

This was until now that I have realized that it was way to much of an obsession, and I don’t want to live my life by a number.

BUT after doing it for so long, I just kinda know whats in what, and what numbers I should be hitting around.  I know my body enough now, to where I know when I need more food and when I don’t.

I chose healthy choices always.  Its simple.  Chose sweet potatoes verses french fries. Etc.. etc..

So that isn’t to say counting down to the exact number is wrong or doesn’t work, but you don’t have to count your macros to look good and feel good.  Just chose healthy choices and portion control!  Don’t overeat.  Don’t eat to junk (refined sugars, fried foods, candy, sweets.. etc) READ LABELS.  Research an ingredient if it doesn’t sound right.

Get a food scale to help you like the one HERE.  Measure out your foods and make sure you’re not overeating.  4 oz of meat, is usually the size of your palm.  

If you’re wanting to lose weight, it is crucial to portion control.

My 7 DAY MEAL PLAN is macro friendly, and you can make it your own.  It isn’t designed to fit everyones individual needs, it is to give you ideas! 

I wrote down exactly what I ate for 7 days, and that is what it is!  It’s very efficient and easy meals!

So I am all for counting your macros!  I still do, BUT my point is to this whole thing is don’t obsess to the point where you’re making yourself unhappy.  Do you and what works for you! 

Give macros a try and maybe it will make you happy.  It does for me, in a way that I don’t obsess anymore.  Say  If I eat over 20 carbs “of what I was supposed to eat” I don’t freak out or let it ruin my day, like I used to.

My point is, live life healthy, happy, make good choices and be active!

If you want to calculate yours, I recommend going HERE.  That will give you your personally calories that you burn everyday, so you can see how much your body needs.  Read through their site too.  This isn’t sponsored by the way.  I just really recommend that site!  It explains it pretty good!

Anyways, I think at this point I am ranting haha.  Please let me know if you have any questions!  Feel free to comment below, or personally email me!  Happy to answer any questions you have about it.

Ps.. this gym gear is one of my new favorites!  Called ONZIE.  They’re so light and moveable.  I don’t feel trapped in them, or hot.  

Have a great day!

I wanted to talk more about my 7 DAY MEAL PLAN, and what it is about.

In my late teens, and early twenties, I had definite eating problems.  From binging and purging to not caring anymore and just eating and eating.

I finally found my balance, and let me tell you, it has taken a lot of time to get here.

When I say that one day it clicks, I mean it. 

I just finally was sick of my body, and my health, and made up my mind that I was going to change it.

I knew how to eat somewhat healthy, from reading about celebrity diets and blah blah haha.  I know, weird, but back even 7 years ago, I didn’t know what an influencer was like I do now, and of course they weren’t even that heard of.

Anyways, so I started by simply counting my calories.  I stuck with eating 1200 calories a day, and that is what I did for a year. 

I lost 30 lbs.  It was great.  I enjoyed my weekends still and had a good routine going and felt good about myself.

Then when I got married I got more into health, just reading articles. 

I then started to make green smoothies, started looking at labels more and making sure I wasn’t eating food dyes, artificial flavors, and GMOS.

I went to eating 1200, to eating 1500 a day.

THEN I started macros the next year.  THIS changed the ENTIRE game.

THIS is when I started to gain real muscle and get really toned.

Aside from my appearance.  This changed my overall health. I just felt GOOD.  I didn’t feel starving and I didn’t feel crazy cravings like I did before, because I was eating what my body actually needed.

I talk more about the Macro thing in this post on “ITS ALL ABOUT MACROS“.  It will explain it all.

I did this up until I got pregnant. 

Before I was pregnant I was cheating way to much on the weekends though, I will admit.

I still felt good and looked good, but by Monday every week, I just felt crummy, and it wasn’t until Wednesday of each week, that I finally felt better after following my plan for 2 days.

I also drank to much beer on the weekend haha.

So ever since having Oaks I have cut back a lot on alcohol (not that i was drinking it to much before, but I cut it out almost completely)

And I cut back on cheating so much on the weekends.

Now, I have one cheat meal a week and have a glass of wine here and there, and I feel better than ever.

THIS is how I got my abs back and even better.  I haven’t had tone like this.

So, as much as I hate to admit it, beer sucks the life out of your abs haha. At least for me.  So I keep the drinking to a minimal.

I don’t follow this plan really that much on vacations though.

Okay, so anyways.  This EBOOK was designed to keep you healthy and feeling SO Good.  I love this book, every single day of my life.

I don’t believe in crazy low carb diets.  I don’t think it is healthy to eat under 100 carbs a day.

Not bashing on any diet, this is just my personal opinion.

Also, not saying they don’t work, but I believe in something you will do forever.

This will keep you from binging out, and keep you healthy and feeling great all the time.

I have done crazy diets.  They didn’t work for me. I was at my heaviest when I would cut out carbs.  Because I would end up binging out.

To each their own, but this Meal Plan is to keep you healthy and feeling good, and not starved.

If you’re a busy on the go mom, then this will help!  I don’t have a ton of time to cook, so this plan works.

AND not to mention the energy you need to help you get through the day chasing your babies around.

It is not specifically designed for each individual, but it will definitely give you so many ideas, and you can modify it however you want!

Here is the post I did about my 7 DAY MEAL PLAN

Let me knoif you have any questions at all, or if you have it, let me know how it’s going!
