Some of us have no problem with getting out of bed. Others find it more difficult. Are you the one who always snooze for 20 minutes? Do you set 3 alarms to make sure you’ll wake up? Then these tips might be helpful!
Try not to snooze, but jump out of bed and get moving! You’ll be awake in seconds, and also giving your metabolism a boost.
Drink water. Make sure you have a big bottle filled up with water next to your bed, and make this the first thing you do when you open your eyes. Your body can use the hydration.
Take a cold shower. Just what suits you,if you really can’t stand the cold then find a way between your normal temperature and the cold. If you do this at first, you’ll give your body a shock. I assure you, this one works.
Buy a alarm with a radio option and put it at the end of your bed. If you wake up with a loud of hard sound (voice in my case; I always woke up when they were telling the news) you’ll be annoyed. But because it’s at the end of your bed, you need to get out to stop it. And no; DON’T go back!
I hope you can find a tip that is useful for you. Try to do it on a day to day base; if you give up after once it will probably not help you. Good luck with trying!
I’m currently in week 3, just finished my resistance training. And how do I feel? Exhausted, but satisfied. I’m getting used to Kayla’s workout ritm, and I started to enjoy her workouts. It feels good when you can feel it burning.
I found out that I hate arms&abs. Abs are ok, but arms.. Mine are like rubber after the workout. I’m not seeing results yet, but I might be a bit to keen on that. I really want to be toned and muscular!
This is me now:
How do you feel? Do yo started to like the workouts?
I just finished my first week of the BBG! I found it really hard to be honest. The cardio days were easy, but the resistence days were hard.
I’m not just to that kind of training.
But damn it felt so good! I know it’s my imagination but it feels like I already gained muscles.
That’s why I’m doing it; I want a muscular body. I want to feel proud.
I don’t follow Kayla’s HELP nutrition guide, is there someone who does?
I found it expensive, and I already eat HCLF.
Here are my update pictures from this week:
I’m gonna try to keep pn to the BBG, untill I go to Thailand. That is in less than 11 weeks..
I’m excited for tomorrow; my first HIIT workout! 😀
How’s life? At the moment, my life is great. 🙂
I need to go to work in half an hour, and I’m excited for it. I like my new job.
And what I also like is my inner calmness today.
I feel suprisingly calm, relaxed and ‘one’ with my inner me.
I think that’s because I practice yoga more.
I go to class every week, and sometimes even more, ’cause I like it so much.
And I try to eat so that I avoid pain. And I don’t eat animal products, so that makes me happy to.
When you are in balance with yourself, everything seems to work.
Everything goes the way you want it, and if it doesn’t, well then it doesn’t.
I try to avoid stress, and I think I manage well.
WHat do you do to avoid stress?
Today is gonna be a long but nice day. It’s still warm outside, I’m wearing my new trousers and I’m going to the movies tonight (with my best friend). Sounds like a good day. But like I said, it’s gonna be a long day. I still find it kind of hard toeat enough on days like this. I tend to eat less, and as a result I get cravings. I try to eat as many as I should (around 2000 kcal of fruit, 500 of dinner) but sometimes I fail to get it all in. I’m not planning on having cravings today, so I made myself food for school. I made broccoli, a tomato salad and I have fruit. I also have rice crackers in my locker. I hope that it’s enough for me. I find it ard to eat on the go, or to plan my meals. Bit time has learned that I really need to do it. I need to take time for myself, and think about why I do it. RT4 is a lifestyle that makes my feel better, feel loved and to hopefully learn to love myself. I think today will be fine, I took care of lunch/snack and I have a lot of nice things ahead. I have drama classes today, and I’m really looking forward to it. Let’s make something of today!
I decided to start fresh with banana island! I know I can only do it for a couple of days, due to school,work,dinnerappointments. But I’m gonna try to do it for a few days.. I hope I won’t get sick of eating the very same thing over and over again. Has someone tried it?
Like I told you yesterday, I’m starting over! Just because I had some difficulties and I couldn’take the time to really read me into this lifestyle. That’s why I decided to start over, fresh, and full of energy.
I actuall started yesterday but I didn’t had time to post and my pictures wouldn’t open. Very frustrating. But it all doesn’t matter anymore, I just log now.
Yesterday was hard, went to the cinema.It was really nice but hard to resist the popcorn. I wonder, if you make them yourself, if they are RT4-proof.
I had a school day today and I had artclass. Theater. I really like it. My teacher is great, and I get cool feedback from the other students. Yesterday I went for a bikeride, and today I walked for 1,5 hour. SO I did my excercise.

Tomorrow is going to be a hard day, I need to visit the hospital. I need to receive treatment. But my boyfriend is joining me, luckily..
How are you doing? 🙂 I’m fine, enjoying the weather outhere in Amsterdam. Yesterday was a banana day for me, I only ate banana’s and some blackberries. We picked blackberries in the woods, they taste so sweet or sour. I think I’m gonna make my own jam out of them. RT4 is great, I think it makes my feel better. My disease is getting worse though, I need to go to the hospital this wednesday. They give me some medicin, equal to a chemotreatment. I’m always feeling afterwarts, but still need to receive it. Otherwise I will be much sicker then I am already now. I’m not looking forward to it. Thankfully my boyfriend is coming with me. Hopefully RT4 will help me feel better, I was still eating ‘normal’ the last time I received treatment. Let’s look at my food now.

let’s tell you about my day. It was okay, I regret one thing I ate, but I was so hungry and hadn’t pack enough food for work. My day was relaxed, I went out for luch with my mum and went to our toko to buy sushileaves (form seaweed :D). The sun was shining, and we want for a bikeride after our lunches. Working was okay, but I forgot to pack dinner so I was very hungry and I ate white bread with seeds on top.
