A Few Good Reasons To Blog + Anyone Up For A 21 Day Weight Loss Challenge?…….Also, A Spider

Hey Lovelies!

So in case you were wondering, which I am certain you have just been on the edge of your seat wondering if I have gotten my fitness act together since Wednesday, I haven’t. Ugh! I am just in a rut. Not only do I have absolutely no desire to exercise but it almost seems painful at the moment to exercise. Yesterday I even Googled “Do I have to workout in order to lose weight?” Haha!

Of course I know the answer to my Google. No, I don’t. It’s just good for me to exercise. Not only does it make me stronger and healthier but it’s definitely a better use of my time than Googling things like “Do I have to workout in order to lose weight?”

But seriously, I have got to get my act together. This is how my days have gone here lately…

-Get up
-Eat healthy breakfast, log healthy breakfast and weight into My Fitness Pal
-Go back and forth as to if I will ever workout again
-Take Ryan to school, clean, errands, etc.
-Eat healthy lunch, may or may not log into My Fitness Pal
– Snack before getting Ryan, debate eating more snacks before getting Ryan
-Forget about My Fitness Pal
-Plan how I will do better the next day…..

I haven’t been blogging as much lately. There are several reasons for this. Here are a few….

I Got Sick Of Being Online

The good thing about blogging for free is that it doesn’t matter if you blog or not. After I stopped Beachbody coaching, I needed to unplug big time. I’m still not on social media and it’s pure bliss. I don’t know if I will ever go back. If you are on the fence about kicking social media, I say do it! It’s so peaceful out here.

When I Am Really Deep In Thought, I Can’t Think of Anything To Write

Which is weird because my thoughts are certainly blog post worthy. Very blog post worthy actually. But I have liked keeping a light hearted tone on The Keen Peach up until recently so I haven’t been sure how deep I want to get on here or if I even want to veer from fitness which is what this blog was originally about. I am thinking I might be getting deeper on here though.

Update soon!

I Am Not Very Good At Keeping This Blog From Being A Shrine to Angela Teal    

This is the kicker. I love to write. I love to share my thoughts and get feedback. I love the healthy life! But ugh, selfies, selfies, selfies. Progress pics, what I ate, what I think, what I feel, everything me me me! Ugh! I even had to ask myself what is actually fueling my progress. Actual love for fitness, or praise from you readers?! I’ve just been so convicted this year.

So I have been kinda stuck as to how to proceed with my blogging.

BUT

In my pondering I have concluded there are in fact some undeniably good reasons to blog. Here they are!

Maybe you will inspire something good! Or at least find a community of people who think kind of like you do.

There Are Still A Lot Of People Out There Who Have Absolutely No Clue How To Be Healthy

I forget that not everyone knows how to be healthy……..or even cares for that matter. My brother was visiting this weekend and I said something about a carb. He didn’t know what a carb was. He is not alone. I love this! It means there is something I can help with.

This One Is About Me……Blogging Holds Me Accountable

Seriously guys. I fall off the wagon when I don’t blog. I am going to try my very best to not selfie and my progress pics will be fully clothed but I must have accountability and posting my progress on this blog holds me accountable. When I am off the wagon, I am exhausted and I have absolutely no time to be exhausted! PLEASE jump into any fitness challenge done on here. I need you! Let’s help each other.

So here we go yet again Peaches. New challenge tomorrow. I have 21 days until this wedding. Anyone up for a 21 Day Weight Loss Challenge? If you are up for it, let’s do it!

I feel this post needs a picture but I just said I wouldn’t selfie. So check out this spider that has been hanging outside my back door for days!

Stay tuned for Day 1 tomorrow!

My Two Fav Flavors Now Come In Vegan! What Are The Odds???

My Two Fav Flavors Now Come In Vegan! What Are The Odds???

So this morning I go to do my workout on Beachbody on Demand and what do I see??? Two new VEGAN Shakeology flavors. And what flavors are they??? That would be vanilla and cafe latte. What are the odds that 2 months into my vegan journey Shakeology comes out with two new vegan options that happen to be exactly MY two favorite flavors?! SO WEIRD! I’m so excited! I feel like I won something haha! Talk about a motivated Monday. Gah.

How to force weight loss, guaranteed fit for a lifetime!

There are many ways to get fit,  the best way is simply to diet with knowledge. It’s so powerful to have this and it can be learned fast if you go at it. There are hundreds types of diets out there,  many of them do work yet few who diet make it all the way to their desired physique and many who achieve it goes back to old habits.

Dietary knowledge:

With knowledge on many diets you can choose what diet method suits you and even combine several or switch between them when needed. For example, say you have a planned dinner and you know it will be a high caloric one then intermittent fasting is great on this particular day. Need to eat out often due to job or travel,  then hit IIFYM (if it fits your macros).

Knowledge on supplementation can do a lot for you. Supplements like caffeine, creatine,  vitamins and minerals all just give a small effect but combined together they do make quite a difference to your workouts.

Physical knowledge:

Knowledge on how to exercise,  what burns most calories and how to increase strength and endurance is key in a successful diet. There is such a huge difference between one going to the gym hitting random machines and another going there with a lifting program and focusing on progression. Understanding how to progressively getting stronger and how to avoid and overcome plateaus in fitness is valuable.

Psychological knowledge:

If you have knowledge or know many hacks (tricks) about hunger control it simplifies dieting a lot. The same goes with knowledge about how to count calories,  which is crucial so you don’t overeat nor undereat.

Having knowledge on developing good habits, manage willpower and become more disciplined will also be beneficial for you.

Where to find it?

To summarize it you should focus on knowledge,  with that knowledge it’s not a question of how, rather a question of when you’ll hit your desired physique. At my blog I focus on sharing relevant and scientific knowledge simplified. My content takes just a few days to read through and will give you the foundation to start transforming yourself on all kinds of levels. Whether you aim to achieve an aestethic physique, become more productive or seek motivation you’ll find it at askhami.

I also share my progress as I get stronger, bigger and leaner, while sharing my knowledge, secrets and struggles in everyday life.
