Hey guys, I’m Carley. I’m 19 years old and 5’3. The before pictures were taken February 18, 2014 and the during ones were taken August 13, 2014.
I’ve spent most of my life yo-yo dieting and trying to find a fast fix to my weight. But it took a lot of time and failed attempts for me to realize that changes don’t happen overnight and you can’t lose sight of the big picture. You need to change your entire lifestyle in order to change yourself — not go on a “diet”. It’s so important to FEEL healthy on the inside in order for it to show on the outside. I’m so proud of myself and can’t wait to continue on my fitness journey.
Major things that I did to lose the weight were: cut out pop, cut down majorly on fast food/candy/refined carbs such as sugar and white bread, drank TONS of water every day, and ate lots of veggies and fruit and more lean proteins such as fish and chicken. For exercise I didn’t do anything too crazy… I did some days of insanity here and there, walked a lot and eventually started jogging. Remember that weight loss is mostly diet — if you work out every day and eat like shit you won’t see the results you want.
Believe in yourself — If I can do it, so can you.

This is the second installment of yoga guide to relieve pain and tension caused by the menstrual cycle (check out the first yoga guide for menstrual cramps here!)! This is a project that I’ve done with PSLove, a local company that hopes to bring about happy periods to all ladies through their period care packages.
This yoga guide will be available in a handy hardcopy booklet all thanks to the friends at PSLove, and we will be giving them out to you guys!
Check out how you can receive this yoga guide booklet in the brand new post below, as well as a detailed write up on the various pain-relieving asanas here <:
So I have very recently discovered the wonder that is juicing, with a slight difference.
When juiced most of the fibre in a fruit or veg is lost, so I have opted for blending into a smoothie rather than juicing with a juicer. This means a thicker drink with more calories, but it’s much more filling and for an extra 100-200 calories, you’re keeping the original fibre which would have been left behind in the pulp.
For example in this green cocktail I’m drinking for breakfast, I have a whopping 20g of fibre which would have been reduced to 2g with juicing. Thats almost 50% of your daily fibre needs reduced to 5%!In the next couple of weeks I’m going to aim to blend two meals a day and eat one solid healthy meal in addition. I’ll be comparing everything before and after about two weeks. :) Looking at how getting so many fruits and veggies a day effects:
…and soooo many other things :)
