Almost missed my #transformationtuesday Im still a big girl but Im a much more active big girl and healthier! Im taking the slow route losing weight because in the past when I would cut everything out cold turkey I would last like 2 weeks and then cave in and binge! I love my body bigness and all, I just dont want an unhealthy body and thats my goal is to be at a healthy weight! :) #transform #trainandtransform #fit_girls_worldwide #fitnessgirls #fitness #weightlossjourney #fitnessjourney #amazingfitnessresults #gethealthy #getfit #plussize #bbw #bbwlover #chicksthatlift #girlsthatlift #transformation #weightlossmotivation #curvy #curves #biggirl #chubby #beforeandafter #progress #weightlosstransformation by kittykat9140 http://ift.tt/1qfXncz

Calories don’t burn off nearly as fast as they are eaten and I’m sure you all know that. When it comes to weight loss, the “calories in, calories out” idea can be frustrating. We eat so many calories and burn so few….so what’s the deal? Here are some changes you can make to your life that will help you burn even MORE calories!
Eat before your workout…A lot of people like to roll out of bed and on to the treadmill before eating anything. While there is controversy over this topic, a recent study in the Internal Journal of Sports Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism suggests that eating something small before a workout sets your muscles up with the perfect amount of glycogen they need to perform their best. They found that exercisers who ate breakfast prior to working out had a significantly higher VO2 (a measure of energy expenditure) and fat-burn rates compared to those that did not eat anything.
Work your lower body…Your largest muscles are in your legs. Rep per rep, leg exercises such as squats burn way more calories than upper body exercises such as bicep curls. No disrespect to your upper body but when it comes to torching calories, lower body exercises are your best bet. Plus, working your larger muscles requires more calories to be burned during the recovery process. So it’s really a two for one deal…burn more calories during AND after your workout on leg day!
Incorporate interval training…You’ve all heard or seen the word “HIIT” which stands for high intensity interval training. Rather than running 2 miles at the same speed (known as steady state training), interval training requires you to change things up. By alternating periods of high intensity exercise with periods of rest, you’re able to work harder and longer, thus burning more calories in the end. BONUS: A research study from the Human Performance Laboratory at Appalachian State University found that doing high intensity interval training can have your body burning calories for up to 14 hours AFTER your actual workout…Can’t beat that!
Lift heavier weights…Those 5 pound dumbbells might like cute in your hands but picking up heavier dumbbells will help you burn wayyyy more calories. More muscle = faster metabolism = more calories burned. You need to challenge your muscles with heavier weights in order for them to grow!
Switch up your workouts…A lot of trainers preach “consistency is key” and while that is true to an extent, switching up your workouts from time to time will keep your muscles guessing. You never want your muscles to get used to an exercise or a specific weight. Your body can adapt in just 3 weeks from the same exercise program. When that happens, you plateau and your body stops burning as many calories as it did when you first started. So yes, stay consistent with working out but switch up your workouts every so often!
Take your running outside…Running gets a lot of recognition for its big calorie burn but did you know that you can burn up to 10% MORE calories by taking your run outside? You can thank the uneven terrain, temperatures, and wind resistance for that!
Do your strength training BEFORE your cardio…If you do cardio and strength training in the same workout, always always always strength train FIRST. Why? You’re more likely to hit your strength training workout harder. And that’s important because at the end of the day, strength training beats cardio in the calorie burn competition.

Here’s a Fitness Hack for everyone struggling with something called plateaus or just plain boredom of doing the same routine. 

"SHOCK YOUR MUSCLE"

Stop spending more than an hour at the gym doing your workout. If you find yourself working out for longer than 40 minutes, you’re either not working out efficiently (choosing specific exercises) or you are lazing around.

I missed Tuesday so I’m going to do a transformation Thursday; this is a solid year of growing, eating better, and exercise. I feel sharper than I ever have, but I have to keep pushing myself to really find out what I’m capable of, physically and mentally.

femalehotties:

Start:235
Current:180
Goal:130

For years I struggled with weight. It was so hard. A year ago I looked back and realized just how bad I got. I decided it’s enough. I had two options 1) do nothing and live regret or 2) start now and work to where I have always wanted to be. I’m still far from my goal but I worked my ass off to get where I am.

I look like a completely different person now 😁 #70lbsdown #beforeandnow #fitness #vegan

rachaelfightsback:

Alright, I’m hopping on the transformation Tuesday train because today is a big day for me! Left is when I was at my heaviest of 270+ pounds and size 20-22 jeans. Today I’m 175 pounds and wearing SIZE EIGHT JEANS! 8!! Aka single digits! I bought these back in April for $5 as goal jeans. I can’t even tell you how surprised I was when they snuggly slid right on.

[TW: sexual abuse, ableism]

I’m sure just about everyone here is aware of the statistic that on average, 1 in 5 women in the US are sexually assaulted in their lifetimes.

For people with developmental disabilities, that number is over 90%. Over 90% of our most vulnerable population are sexually abused, very often by care providers or family members.

Where the fuck is our outrage? How is ableism not viewed as a legitimate oppression yet?
