How to crush those last 10 lbs

Got a frustrating few pounds left? 

You've been on point with your fitness, getting in your workouts and eating cleaner than ever before. Initially the weight fell off, and it motivated you to keep it up.

But now your results have stopped.

You’re still doing all that hard work, but it's no longer showing in pounds lost, inches shed and compliments gained.

What gives? That's seriously frustrating.

The good news is that reaching a plateau with your results is natural and normal. It happens to everyone. And there is a solution…

Here are my 3 Foolproof Steps to Crush The Last 10 LBS (BTW these steps also work when applied to the first few pounds!)

Foolproof Step #1: Eliminate The Sugar

Yeah, yeah, I know you’re eating cleaner than you’ve ever eaten before, and that you’ve eliminated the junk food that you used to enjoy. But don’t tell me that you’ve taken all of the sugar out of your diet. I usually hear it like this, "Jen, I've taken out all of my sugar (wait for it)....for the most part." For the most part doesn't cut it!

When it comes to crushing those last few pounds you must become ruthless with eliminating sugar from your diet. 

If it has sugar grams then start avoiding it. 100%

Do you want to get rid of the last 10....well 100% no sugar!

Foolproof Step #2: Eat Small Frequent Meals

Dividing your daily nutrition between small mini-meals throughout the day is a tried-and-true way to reboot your fitness results. Aim to eat every 2.5 to 3 hours, keeping the portions small and filled with protein, good fats and fiber.

Veggies and protein should make up the bulk of your small meals. Keep portion size in check and avoid adding in starches or sugars.

Use the Easy Skillet Veggies recipe below for tender veggies to use in your small meals. Just add some protein and be sure to pack it ahead of time to eat on-the-go whenever 2.5 hours has passed.

You may be surprised how quickly this technique revs up your metabolism, turning you into a calorie-burning machine!

Foolproof Step #3: Increase Workout Intensity

It’s great that you’re exercising regularly, but how hard are you really pushing yourself? Could you lift heavier? Could you go longer? Could you move quicker? Could you work so hard in class you can't even talk??????  

As soon as your workout routine falls into a rut, you can be sure that your results will do the same. 

To avoid this frustrating hamster wheel of boring-workouts-no-results, look at each and every workout as a personal challenge to outdo what you did yesterday. Reach for the weights that are going to be a bit of a struggle, instead of the ones that you could do in your sleep. We can remind you of this, and encourage you toward this but it's up to you to DO IT! 

You might as well get the most out of your time in the gym, and pushing yourself will do just that.

There you have it, 3 Foolproof Steps to Crush Those Last 10 LBS! Implement these into your routine for 30 days and watch how quickly the weight falls off.

You can do this!

To take your fat-torching results up another notch by adding a bonus cardio session to your evening routine. Spend 30 minutes before dinner doing sprints, riding your bike, swimming laps or doing burpees. Try this for 30 days for phenomenal results!


Easy Veggie Skillet

This mixture of tender veggies is perfect for packed meals for the week. The savory and tangy flavor element from the vinegar adds the perfect amount of kick to liven up a serving of protein.

One of the reasons that I chose these three particular vegetables (red onions, mushrooms, and asparagus) was because it will last all week in the fridge without getting soft, soggy or otherwise undesirable. In fact, the flavors intensify over a few days and you can continue to enjoy the same batch all week!
