JGF 30 Day Challenge: How to Build that Healthy “Lifestyle”

It’s a lifestyle. I didn’t get to where I am today by dieting year round, killing myself with cardio, depriving myself of carbs, pizza or food I love. I’ve worked really, really hard to develop healthy habits that:
🔸 allow me to enjoy life
🔸 not “fall off the wagon” when life gets hectic
🔸 get healthier and stronger
🔸 develop a healthy relationship with food.
This is why I’m starting my free 30 day challenge (details below). I have had so many ups and downs in this journey, but, the freedom I feel from not dealing with any of the issues below is beyond liberating.
🔸not restricting food
🔸not stressing about social situations
🔸not obsessing about my clothing size or weight
🔸not jumping from diet to diet
🔸not trying extremes before bikini season
Over the last 2 1/2 years I have worked really hard to stop making short term, drastic changes. I said goodbye to extreme dieting, cleanses, detoxes and depriving myself of food groups and treats. I ushered in the idea of long term lifestyle changes to reach and maintain my goals.

If you’re looking to make the shift, join my 30 day challenge. Each day I will send you one e-mail sharing something I’ve learned. I’ll cover a wide range of things from how I set my goals, to how I’ve shifted my focus from dieting to healthy habits. I’ll talk about the kinds of foods I try to avoid and why, how I eat, as well as working towards finding balance between training and dieting.

    Hey Love! Because our body fat does in fact weigh something, if you area trying to lose fat you are trying to lose weight. This is when you need to be eating in a calorie deficit. If your goal is to put on muscle, this is most easily done eating in a calorie surplus. This isn’t to say you can’t do both at the same time, but most people are more successful if they stick to one goal at a time. I generally recommend eating between maintenance and a calorie surplus for building muscle (focusing on consuming enough carbs and protein) and eating in a calorie deficit when trying to lose weight.

  9. Hi Nikki.

    I am completely in awe of how hard you workout and am def motivated. I have been trying to get back into working out and I just haven’t been seeing results so I have kinda been discouraged.
    I am just wondering how often I should be working out? How many weights days and how many cardio days. I had always been doing full body workouts but is it better to do legs/butt one day and back/chest another etc? How often do you do abs? How many reps do you do and how many times do you repeat each set? Please let me know. Thanks so much and I love your videos!

  10. I just signed up for the challenge and Im wondering how many days a week should I be working out and also what types of the workouts should I be doing…full body or muscle group area? I can probably make the gym 5 days a week.
