Hey guess what y'all?! My mom, Teressa, has recently committed to living low carb with me and she is all in! I'm really excited for her because I just know how life changing taking control of your health can be and I'm so happy to be able to be a part of her journey.
My mom has always been my best friend...my rock. She's hilarious, smart, and adventurous. Unfortunately, she's really been through a lot in the last few years and like many others, because of the excessive stressors in life, her focus on health has taken a backseat. Together, she and I are going to change that and put the focus back on healthy foods and exercise! I'm going to be cooking a lot of her meals and preparing snacks for her. She runs a business that takes so much of her time, so I know one of her biggest hurdles would be finding the time to fix low carb meals. I'm going to help with that as much as I can, but we'll be meal prepping to save time for both of us in the long run.
Exercising will become a big focus in both of our lives as I know that motivating her in turn will motivate me as well! This is a big win win on both sides! I would encourage anyone wanting to start a steady exercise routine to seek out a buddy to help stay motivated and accountable to! Even if your "buddy" is a fitness app, a daily food and exercise journal, or a separate Instagram account for everything health and fitness related in your life...just something that you can go back to to keep track of progress and motivate you to keep going forward!
Because she knows this is going to be a process and a journey that ultimately will end with a more positive body image, weight loss, and most importantly, a healthier and more fit lifestyle, she hopes that her journey can also inspire others, so I will be keeping track of her progress and posting updates here and on my Instagram account as well (lowcarb_and_fitness). She's so excited to take on her 50's with a positive new outlook on health and fitness. It'll be fun to share her progress with you guys!
Stay tuned for more on Teressa's low carb journey!
