Let me be honest... I've been slacking on my workouts lately. I was doing so good--going to the gym 4 times a week, eating right--but life got in the way. Luckily, I haven't gained any weight! I'm pretty happy about that :-)
Here's the thing about me--I have a love/hate relationship with the gym. I love how I feel after a workout, but I hate the physical act of exercising. I could be like everybody else on Instagram and flex like I go to the gym religiously, but I'm not going to lie to y'all. I'm human and sometimes I do not exercise (GASP!). Unless I'm extremely depressed or extremely happy, I would rather not go to the gym. Plus, my job is pretty active (running after 2 year olds all day is a sufficient workout). Despite my lack of cardio, I stay within the same 5-7 lb. weight range AND all of my clothes still fit!
I'm not condoning being lazy at all... I'm slightly ashamed of myself :-( but if you don't like exercise, you have to make sacrifices in your diet. Because I make substitutions and cut out certain things, I'm able to maintain my weight. I can also attribute it to youth and a decent metabolism! Here are some rules that my fellow lazy queens can follow to keep you sexy and somewhat healthy:
Just making small adjustments to your everyday diet can make a huge difference. Also, stay in tune with your body. I notice when I'm starting to gain weight and that's when I decide to kick it up a notch and exercise. Don't let 10, 20, or 50 pounds creep up on you! Of course, this isn't a substitute for exercising, but it's a baby step towards becoming, or remaining, a sexy queen :-)
Tip: Don't be afraid to treat yourself every now and then (in moderation!!!). After working hard and eating well, you deserve a milkshake or a thick juicy burger!
