Love what camille has to say about food

IS:Do you have a nutrition plan that you follow? If yes, do you meet disapproval from you friends?Or do they understand why you eat the way you do?
CL:My meals are really strict. I follow the paleo diet.My friends disagree but the thing is- in life at the moment that you show more effort than anybody else around you, it pisses them off,because you are proving them they are wrong. Most often than not,when we go out my friends try forcing me to drink and sometimes it makes me really sad because they get mad at me and they think that I just don’t want to have fun with them!Truth is that my goal is bigger than one night out and I work so hard that I don’t want to ruin all of the work I put into it.

Do’s and Don’ts of a Successful Fitness Plan
Do
Write down your fitness goals. You’re more likely to stick with a program once you have set some specific goals.
Always strive to eat a well balanced diet that includes ample servings of vegetables and fruit.
Break down your meals so you are eating several mini meals per day.
Assess your current fitness level before starting an exercise program. By doing so, you’ll be able to establish goals that meet your specific fitness needs.
Consider talking with your health care provider before embarking on a fitness program, particularly if you are struggling with a health condition such as diabetes or obesity.
Supplement your diet with essential fatty acids. You can do this by eating two servings of fish per week.
Choose alternatives to satisfy your cravings when possible. Consider frozen fruit over ice cream or opt for a mini chocolate instead of the whole candy bar.
Always warm up before and stretch after your exercise routine.
Don’t overdo it! Try doing too much at once and you’ll burn out swiftly. Slowly increase the intensity of your workouts.
Diversify your workout routine. If you do the same exercises day after day, you’ll quickly tire and are more likely to skip workouts.
Work out with a friend. You’ll help motivate each other.
Keep healthy snacks available at all times. You’re less likely to grab junk food if something good for you is readily available.
Don’t
Over-train. Your body needs time to recover in between workouts.
Skip breakfast. Eating breakfast will jump start your metabolism and provide you with the energy you need to get through the day.
Skip stretching.
Skimp on sleep.
Set unrealistic goals. A healthy rate of weight loss is 1-2 pounds per week. If you have 50 pounds to lose, don’t expect it to come off overnight, you’ll set yourself up for disappointment.
Compare your successes and failures to others. Everyone is unique, and what works for some may not work for others.
Work out randomly. Work out regularly to maximize the benefits you’ll reap from a consistent fitness routine.
Give up. Consider talking with a friend in times of discouragement.
Forget to reward yourself on occasion.

If there’s one thing that you can learn about food and nutrition- this may be it. PLEASE LISTEN AND UNDERSTAND. In order to be healthy we must look straight into the eyes of nature. We were made to live here and prosper by eating the food from the earth. Yes that includes the meat of all forms. Yes that includes the milk. Yes that includes fruits, veggies, and nuts. No that does not include anything called processed foods- FOODS made my man. We were not supposed to come to earth and make our own food in a factory. Our bodies with thrive from food in its natural state. That is why it is so important to have unpasteurized milk, grass fed meat, and organic fruits and veggies. This guy knows what he is talking about. Don’t be afraid of nature’s food, be afraid of man’s food which has made us unhealthy and obese. 

New Motivation, New Benchmark, New Goals

Today I went and got my body fat percentage done on a machine! I’m not sure of how accurate it was but the machine was very high-tech. So my body fat percentage is… 26%. And this is healthy but it’s too high for me. I understand I have large breasts and a big bum, but this is not considered ATHLETIC. I need to tone my arms and core and lose about 5- 10 pounds. 

My motivation never leaves my mind. It’s always thinking “You can do better, you can always get better”. And its very true. Although I thought my number would be lower than this, I have a benchmark now- a place to start again. There’s no reason why you cannot make new goals and strive to be better. So here it goes! Everyday is a new day.

Make every day a new step on your way to your goal. You are the only thing between you and happiness.
