Half a year ago I started the most serious part of my fit journey. So far I have lost 15 kg (33 lbs) and more than two clothing sizes. On top of that I gained much more confidence and physical strength. So what happened? To be honest, I just turned the switch entirely. Before I wasn’t really prepared to make sacrifices. Until I realized that if I tried to achieve a goal by only putting in half the effort, the only thing I was going to get from it would be frustration. So I decided to suck it up and fight for something I really wanted:
To become a woman who is comfortable in her own skin
This is for everyone who wants to become the fittest version of themselves: there is no secret recipe or pill that’s gonna help you. You just have to eat healthy and work your ass off. It sounds easy, but I know it’s not. You will shed blood, sweat, tears and go trough fit dips, but along the way you’ll also reach important milestones that make the effort well worth.
The more I transform into Anna 2.0, the more questions I get about what I eat and how I exercise on a daily basis. So just like Aranka and Chris, I decided to keep a food and exercise schedule for week to show you how I roll! Please keep in mind that what works for me will not necessarily work for you. You will have to keep adjusting your food and exercise routine till it feels right, just like I had to do. And still, my eating habits are not the same every week. For example, a few weeks ago, I had a bit of a set back. I just hated everything that had to do with being a Fit Girl. I asked my trainer Georgios for advice and he told me to just keep going without beating myself up. He told me, that after all these years he still experiences the same thing every now and then. Your workouts might suck for a week (or longer) and you cheat more than you should, but eventually your aversion will fade away. I followed his advice, and now I slowly feel like I’m getting back on track again.
So remember, when you screw up, skip a workout or eat bad foods, it does not make you a bad person. It makes you human. Welcome to the club, there’s like a 7 billion of us.
