As you know, the Eat-Clean Diet recently started their Stripped for Summer contest. Because I have been a bit too relaxed with my own clean eating, I decided this challenge was just what I needed! In order to ensure that I would be successful, I realized I would need a plan!
I started by reading through my copy of Tosca Reno's book, The Eat-Clean Diet Stripped. This book is specifically geared to those that are trying to loose that last ten pounds that just won't budge. I also printed out Tosca Reno's helpful Summer RESET Guide and posted it on my fridge as a daily reminder.
Write it down, make it happen!
My Plan was as follows:
Eat Clean, 100%! Keep a food journal to stay on track!
Strike sugar! This includes antural sweeteners!
Drink 2-3 liters of water per day!
Be active! Write down my workouts in my Workout Journal!
Accountability: find someone I trust and can be tough with me to hold me accountable! I email my partner a list of everything I ate/drank and my workouts at the end of each day. I even went so far as to agree to pay her $5 for every time I cheat, ie, ate/drank something that I knew I shouldn't.
Include Strength Training: "If you don't challenge your body, you're not going to change it!"
"Discipline: doing what needs to be done, even when you don't feel like it!"
Summer is just around the corner. If you aren't happy in your skin, make the most of the coming weeks by doing something about it! What kinds of things do you do to ensure success if you are trying to lose weight! I would love to hear from you in the comments below.
Take exceptionally good care of yourself!

A little Throw Back Thursday? I can't believe I found a pic of me in a bathing suit. This is definitely not at my heaviest but I was miserable in life in general here. I was caught up in an unhealthy relationship, had lost myself and stopped putting in any effort to better myself. If I could sit down with the girl on the left I would tell her: "It's going to get better. You will realize that you deserve the healthiest, happiest life ever and you will accept nothing less when you realize that. You are going to figure it out and you will never again let anyone or anything dim your light. You will turn heads with your confidence and love of life. You will do it all and then some. PS: Those legs you've got right there...just wait until you see how you transform them!" xoxo https://www.facebook.com/LivingInspiredWithJillian
