Wowzers, what a crazy couple days.
After mingling with Theo Paphitis at the ICC in Birmingham and picking up my exclusive SBS Winners Certificate, I’m happy to say I’m back!
Ready to help support and motivate you through 3 fabulous weeks of sweat, success and looking good NAKED.
Oh yes, The ‘Feel Good Feb’ Challenge has officially started!!
And with Valentines Day upon there’s never been a better time to increase our ‘birthday suit’ confidence ; )
If you missed the juicy details and why you’d be CRAZY not to be part of it.
Check it out:
So let’s kick off with Mini Challenge No.1
1. Use MyFitnessPal to track your calories for at least ONE week
Why should you do this?
I suspect many people reading this want to LOSE weight.
To lose weight you need to be in a calorie DEFICIT.
To be in a calorie deficit you need to know HOW many calories you’re consuming and how many calories to aim for daily.
To do this, you need to use a tracker such as MyFitnessPal (MFP).
What gets measured….gets managed.
And I’ll place a bet, if you’ve never done this before it’ll be one HECK of an eye opener!!
Tracking your calories = Knowledge = Power = Better food choices = Results
I’d personally recommend using an online calculator such as IIFYM (If It Fits Your Macros) to calculate your calories/macros then add these details to MFP as it’s more accurate.
What are Macros Lee?
Protein, carbs and fat that make up the calorific content of our food.
Should I opt for the paid version of MFP? – No
Should I record my exercise and eat back the calories? – Absolutely No
Do I need to pay attention to everything MFP tells me? – No
Simply use it to track your calories and aim to hit your protein target only.
(we’ll be covering protein soon).
Not sure how MFP works?
Have a play with it to get familiar or check out Youtube – there’s LOADS of tutorial videos.
Accompany this with your awesome, flab fighting, fitness fuelling workout I gave you and you’ll be smashing it : )
