So I’m sure most of you know by now, that I started out as a fitness and lifestyle blogger and am a certified personal trainer. And if you didn’t know, well, now you do! As I mentioned in my 2019 goals post, I left 2018 in the worst shape I’ve ever been in. It’s time to make a change and get back on track. Nutrition is about 80% of the fitness equation but with so many different dietary restrictions and medical conditions out there, I’m not going to get into that. I will share what works for me, but, please keep in mind that your body may not react the same.
I have also been sharing my daily workout routine on Instagram stories and saving to my “wellness” highlights. If you’d prefer to follow along day by day you can do so there as well. You can also screenshot or pin these images to reference later. If you are unsure of what any of the exercises are google and YouTube are great resources. This workout routine is meant to be challenging but always be aware of your own personal limitations.
12 Week New Year, New You Program
It is important to make sure you are also implementing good nutrition habits. I prefer to track my daily intake through the MyFitnessPal app. There are several calculators out there to tell you how many calories you need for your height, weight, age, activity level, etc. but I personally love this site.
In the MyFitnessPal app under goals you can change the calories and macro goals based on your readings to help you stay on track. The estimations that the app gives you are always set to 50% carbs, 30% fat and 20% protein but my personal recommendations are 40% carbs, 35% protein and 25% fat. I also love the progress photos feature of this app.
If you end up giving this program a try please let me know how it goes! I love hearing from you! And as always, thanks for reading!
