As a working Mom, I admit that a part of myself which is being healthy was set aside. My time was devoted to raising kids, building a relationship and working on having a comfortable and safe environment for us that means working extra.
I used to have time for myself when I talk about going to the gym to spend an hour or two to sweat. Although I try to squeeze in some time to ride my bike when possible, for me and I know it's not enough to burn out most of it.
I love to cook and bake that's why trying new dishes and dishes my family loves are my time favorite things to prepare. We enjoy discovering new dishes to try by traveling to places, this is how we can introduce different taste and textures to kids growing pallet. And, food is the number one culprit to weight gain especially when you don't have to burn it out through exercise.
Weight loss is a big term that generally turns to added time and effort and restricting food intake. This is somehow people perceive the term, but doing it right will result in a positive outcome.
That is why I am open to considering to start my weight-loss journey with a help of a personal trainer.
People might ask do you really need a personal trainer just to lose weight? Reading through articles about weight-loss management which are a long-term approach to a healthy lifestyle with a combination of proper diet, physical exercise, and energy intake in totally. A personal trainer can work hand in hand by making sure I have time to do things and eat the right food while I enjoy life.
