Dette er beviset på, at din vægt bare er et tal

Rykker vægten sig, når man prøver at tabe sig?

Sund

Dette er beviset på, at din vægt bare er et tal

Nikki Rees besluttede sig for at omlægge sin livsstil. Ikke fordi hun ville tabe sig. Hun ville være glad og have en sundere livsstil. Når man ser et billede af hende to år efter denne beslutning, er hendes vægt stadig den samme. Men hendes krop er forandret. Hun er blevet sund og stærk, ligesom hun gerne ville være.

Det startede med tankegangen

Nikki plejede at spise meget junk food, kager og slik, og det gav hende lyst til at give op og bare stoppe med at træne. Men hun fik nok og tog en beslutning om ikke at lade mad styre hende og hendes liv. Hun ville ændre sit liv til ikke at lade mad give hende dårlig samvittighed og lyst til at give op. Hun ville have energi og spise lækkert på samme tid, og selvom hendes krop har ændret sig meget over de sidste to år, så er vægten stadig den samme.

Let me tell you about my Food/diet/nutrition/healthy eating… whatever you want to call it. Most of you already know that I workout most days .. and that I do so at home. But I get lots of questions about how I eat because it's not something I talk about or photograph that often. . I know It's not what you want to hear but the reason I don't really talk about it .. is because there's nothing really to tell. I don't follow a plan, I don't count anything (not macros not calories) I don't try to cut out food groups or stop eating carbs after 5pm.. I dont do intermittent fasting or flexible dieting or even clean eating (anymore, I did for a while in the beginning) … I still eat cake more days than not… I still drink prosecco I still can't seem to resist stealing snacks from the kids junk food cupboard. I still love a takeaway curry… eat pizza, burger and fries and love to eat sweets… The difference between the two pictures is NOT what those foods do to my body it's what those foods do to my head. 2 years ago eating sweets and takeaway and junk all day would send me into a downward spiral of feeling bad about myself. All that yummy food would actually fuel my EXCUSES to quit exercise, to not bother balancing the treats out with nutritious alternatives. Now these same foods (and my passion for them) fuel my AMBITION to condition my body. I know the difference between eating well and eating poorly… And if a day happens where I binge eat cake and a tub of butter .. I leave it at just that … a day that happened. It doesn't de-rail my goals like it used to … I don't see it as a reason to give up … but a reason to continue … I don't workout out of guilt – I workout to be GUILT FREE. Healthy bodies start with healthy minds. So balance the food books like the intelligent rational human being your are… eat what you love every now and then And what you NEED more often than not… and on those days when it all goes horribly wrong.. as it inevitably will… just remove your face from the tub of butter… replace the lid and continue on exactly as you were.. motivated, goal orientated and #healthyAF . Love Nikki xx #transformationtuesday

Men hvordan gjorde hun?

I starten kørte hun clean eating, hvor hun kun spiste mad, hun selv havde tilberedt. Ikke noget brød eller paneret kylling. Nope, gerne rå grøntsager og kød, der kun er vendt i lidt krydderi. Men det gør hun ikke længere. Hun lader sig ikke styre af regler, og hvis hun har lyst til at spise et stykke kage eller måske ti stykker en dag, så gør hun det. Hun lader ikke en kagedag give hende dårlig samvittighed, fordi hun har et mål om at tabe sig. Hvorfor? Forskellen på sund og usund mad er hun udmærket klar over, så hun respekterer balancegangen mellem de to. Kroppen skal også have sund mad for at få energi.

Hun har lyst til at træne

Før fik hun dårlig samvittighed, når hun spiste usundt, og det tog lysten til at træne fra hende. Nu træner hun ikke på grund af den dårlige samvittighed. Hvorfor skulle hun da også det? Hun er jo glad, når hun både kan spise sund mad, der fylder hendes krop med alle de ting, den har brug for – og samtidig også kan nyde en burger eller lidt kage. Hun træner for ikke at få dårlig samvittigheden – maden vil hun ikke vinke farvel til.

Hun accepterer sig selv

Det hele handler langt fra om at komme til at ligne noget, hun ikke er. Næ nej, det handler om at have det godt med sig selv, have energi og være glad. Også glad for sine strækmærker, sine ar eller sin ‘efter fødsel’-mave. Hvorfor skulle man ville af med noget af det? Det er jo en del af den, man er.

💜ATTENTION 💜this is NOT my usual gratuitous instagram #abs selfie. So PLEASE READ 💜 . . In 2008 I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease. In 2009 I had emergency surgery when my bowels completely sealed off. Going in to surgery I was told to prepare myself that At the age of 28 I may come out with a colostomy bag. . . Fortunately for me once the surgeons removed 10cms of my small bowel the rest of my intestines were deemed healthy enough to not need the help of a bag. . . I'm telling you all this – because today is #WorldIBDday and today I'd like use my little corner of Instagram to try and raise a little awareness for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) . . There is NO cure, the disease is lifelong , unpredictable and often terribly distressing. so awareness, support and understanding is EXTREMELY important and sometimes for the people living with IBD…it's all we have. . . So today I wear purple and today I post of pic of my surgery scar to show MY SUPPORT for @crohnsandcolitisuk and for everyone living with IBD. 💜 . . #styleitpurple #crohnsandcolitisuk #worldibdday #awareness #crohnsdisease #ulcerativecolitis #ibd #inflammatoryboweldisease #purple #charity #support

Vi er vilde med hende

Yay for Nikki. Vi elsker kombinationen af træning og sund mad, der giver kroppen energi og næring, og stadig give sig selv lov til at spise usunde ting – uden at slå sig selv i hovedet over det. Vi har kæmpe respekt for hende og synes, hun er en supersej inspiration. Wuhuuu.
