Lose 15 Pounds in 3 Months
Hey there, gorgeous. With most of us going into 2-months of quarantine, you might be noticing jeans are fitting a bit tighter. Your mind may be focusing on how you can lose 15 pounds in 3 months or quicker. Right now is such a crazy time and it’s so important to be gentle and take care of yourself right now, but there’s nothing wrong with wanting to stay healthy. It’s definitely hard and I for one have noticed myself reaching for the snacks and carb-loaded foods! Balance is key, though, so I’ve been making sure to keep track of my diet and workouts so I feel and look healthy.
That being said, whether you’ve been wanting to shed those extra pounds or just wanting to make a change to your lifestyle – these tips are perfect for both! This post is also a great read if you’re still at home!
This one is obvious! A good-for-you diet includes protein, fresh fruits and veggies, and healthy carbs and calories. Consistent meals, 3/day, plus limited snacking will also help keep you on track!
Consistent Workout Schedule
Next up, hitting the gym. Even if it’s just a yoga mat in the middle of your living room, anything and everything counts. You can get a sweat in during this quarantine, and you’ll feel good about yourself (mentally and physically) after! Cardio is the best way to lose 15 pounds quickly.
One of the easiest and most important things to include while trying to shed the pounds is a calorie deficient in your diet. If you’re eating too many calories, your body won’t be able to shed! An app like MyFitnessPal is perfect for tracking calories and fitness.
Drink Lots of Water
H20 has some amazing benefits. Drinking enough water throughout the day is a ROUTINE. I find it easy to have bottles in my fridge and drink 5-6 every day! After a while, you’ll find yourself reaching for water all the time. Besides clear skin, it helps detoxify all that nasty $h!t out of your digestive system. Oh – and the real kicker, it curbs cravings and hunger. Not drinking enough water can lead to snacking and overeating. Keep this on your mind before reaching for a snack!
Make Your Plate Colorful
Adding a healthy dose of color (i.e. fruits and veggies) into your diet is simple and easy. I love adding fruits into my breakfast and veggies into lunch and dinner! And you can get fun and creative – I love roasting brussel sprouts with bacon. Soups are another great way to add vegetables into your diet in a tasty way.
All the Protein
A huge misconception of protein is that you’ll become bulky when this isn’t necessarily true. Protein can build up muscle mass but it’s mainly a substance that our bodies need to repair muscles and stay healthy! The more muscle you have, the more fat your body burns. You don’t want to skimp out on protein, try to add in eggs, quinoa, sweet potato, and other high-protein foods to repair those muscles and burn that fat.
Watch the Alcohol
When we think of dieting, sometimes we think about what we’re eating but not what we’re drinking. You can ingest so many unhealthy calories in drinks and not even realize it! Make sure to account for the calories in your diet and to opt for low-cal drinks when you can finally go out and celebrate with the girls.
Plenty of Sleep
Life is CRAZY and we can forget to have a consistent sleep schedule. Sleep is so important, not just for weight loss, but for mental and physical health! Try to prioritize a bedtime routine and time – such as journaling, meditation, yoga, then sleep.
