Fitness Journey Friday: Week 4

Hey friends!

I can’t believe it’s already been 4 weeks since 2017 started, and since I’ve decided to restart my fitness journey! Time definitely flies. This week I wanted to try something different – I stopped tracking calories and macros and focused more on how my body felt after each meal. Maybe I jumped the gun a bit, but I think this week went well overall (with the exception of a lack of an appetite due to being sick).

I’m a huge fan of Jeannette Ogden (a healthy foodie on intagram as @shutthekaleup) and she’s a huge advocate for listening to your body and giving it the nutrients that it needs, not necessarily what calorie counting apps tell you that you need. This is a goal that I was working toward, so I figured why not start now??
