Weight loss…what’s more important? In an ideal world, you’d master all three. But, yeah, life happens. So where should you start?

I would say all 3 are important but of course life gets in the way, for example your babies won’t stop crying or the only option for dinner is unhealthy and of course work is so crazy that I’ve not chance to work out this week.
When you don’t get enough sleep, guess what…your sugar levels are low and you crave some unhealthy food, which means you may put on weight, you will also be less likely to go to the gym and workout. And after filling your body with unhealthy things and not working out you may well have trouble sleeping that night, so it’s a vicious circle. But on the flip side, if you get a good night’s sleep, you wake up feeling refreshed, crave healthier foods and have more energy so you will be more likely to workout and then hopefully you will get a good night’s sleep.
I recommend working out first thing in the morning, your metabolism is faster first thing in the morning, plus it’s a great way to kickstart the day. Motion creates emotion which means working out releases a number of hormones that are going to make you feel awesome for the rest of the day.
If you eat healthily, your body is more likely to be working in prime condition which means you should get a good night’s sleep, which again leads to a positive cycle and weight loss.
If you make good choices, more good things happen right? It’s the law of attraction. You are what you eat! Now this isn’t to say you have to live like a nun, you can have the odd cookie or sweet dessert. But if your diet consists of healthy foods, you will look better, feel better, do better! Now go and get your greens…
ps. my ideal start to the day would be working out first thing, then having a power smoothie for breakfast – in this you should have berries, banana, kale, spinach, cinnamon, ginger and some Juice Plus Complete powder. You will be ready to take on the day like a BOSS after that start.
