Have you ever seen someone on the street and wondered what their secret to having such a great body is?

Well, wonder no more because I’m going to find out for you! Hear from real women what it actually takes to get and keep an amazing body: what they eat, what they don’t eat, what they do for exercise, how often they do it, and everything else you wish you could ask a completely perfect stranger but are too polite to.

In this episode of “What your secret?” I interview Alicia (@fatpitsandbiscuits), a dancer with an awesome thrifting and vintage shopping instagram page which she runs with her friend Erin (@mooregranola). By the way, the dress she is wearing in the video is one of her finds!

Watch to find out what she says she does to maintain her lean, lithe physique – you won’t believe how many hours a day she dances when rehearsing for a show and what she has to say about eating breakfast!

We also discuss how many meals she eats in a day,  her stance on carbs, what she tries to eat every day, how active she is when not training for a show, and lots more!

How to Stay Motivated When you’ve Lost Weight, but Have More to Go

stop-giving-upPART II

This question came to me yesterday and I wanted to make sure I shared it, along with my response, here because I thought it could be beneficial to anyone who is currently facing the same problem. The first part deals with how to stay motivated and stop making excuses to work out when you formerly had the zeal and zest to do so.

It’s a very common problem people face, especially after they’ve lost a lot of weight and the weight loss has slowed or they’ve hit a plateau. Thankfully, the answers are not so complicated and difficult to turning things around – in fact there are pretty simple and effective solutions. My answer to this aspect of the question can be found here.

The second part of the question deals with how to prevent backsliding on your diet/exercise regimen and tap back into the motivation you once had specifically after you’ve lost a lot of weight but still have more to go.

Here’s the question and my answer to part II follows.

QUESTION:

Ok. I’ve lost 127 lbs. I hurt my knee pretty bad and needed surgery. I am fully recovered but I’m having suck a hard time with being motivated this time around and I don’t know why. I loved working out before and looked forward to it. Now I find myself making excuses not to. My surgery was 15 months ago. I gained 4 lbs right after surgery because I couldnt move much. I have not gained anything else, just the 4. I also find myself eating stuff I know I shouldn’t because I’m no longer trying to maintain my weight I’m trying to lose some weight. Do you have any advice?
