If you have been struggling to lose weight or burn that last little bit of fat lately, it typically comes down to one of three common reasons.

1.) You are eating garbage and not staying active enough to burn the excess calories. This one is obvious!

2.) You are working out too much, and not properly refueling your body with enough nutrition and protein to recover. This one is less obvious, but common!

3.) You are eating pretty decent and generally make the right choices, but you are not active enough each week to burn enough calories. This is the most common!

One of the simplest things you can do to be more active on days you cannot workout is setting up a daily goal for yourself for a particular exercise.

For example if you wanted to emphasize more attention to your legs and booty, you can set a goal to complete 100 repetitions of squats and hip bridges every Saturday and Sunday.

Or if you know that you are going to miss a workout on a particular day, text or email me and I will give you two exercises of 100 repetitions to replace that day’s work out!

Something is always better than nothing. And if you have slipped up even just slightly on your meal plan, that little bit of activity will help to offset the additional caloric intake.

There is nothing worse than being “pretty good on your diet” but not seeing the scale move. If you think about it though, the formula is a combination of exercise and proper diet.

So if you are not exercising enough, and your diet isn’t 100% percent, you will continuously fight an uphill battle.

Simplify the formula to your transformation: eat a little bit healthier and move a little bit more. Every little bit adds up and every little minute of activity counts in your overall success!
