Give us a brief backstory on how you got started on your fitness journey/lifestyle.
(AISHA) After a few failed attempts, I decided to see a health coach for a few weeks where I got to understand how to eat and workout in order to reach my weight loss goals. The more I seen results or even some times none at all I kept in mind this journey was to bring be better health. The more I ate well I felt lighter the more I made sure to work out the stronger I felt. Those feelings and results made me want to work harder.
What struggle did you run into getting started or staying motivated to continue towards your goals?
(AISHA) I had to constantly remind myself this wasn’t for anyone but myself and no one else could do this work but me. My biggest struggle was taking responsibility for myself.
What advice do you have for those struggling with motivation to reach their goals or continue with a healthy lifestyle?
(AISHA) Fake it till you make it you have to be your biggest cheerleader because nobody understands more than you and no one wants it more than you. It’s okay to have a bad meal or day or even weekend. Because you can always get right back on track. As long as you are building on making healthy choices you will see results. Have patience.
What is your approach to Diet/Nutrition and the role it plays in reaching your goals?
(AISHA) I don’t call myself being on a diet. Instead I plan to eat what will nourish my body when I have cravings I proportion myself before I go over bored lol.
What is a typical day of eating like for you?
(AISHA) I start with infused water with lemon and ginger I’ll add apple cider vinegar a half hour later I’ll have a green smoothie for a snack I’ll have some plantain. Lunch is usually my biggest meal and I’ll have a big salad or mixed steamed vegetables on the side some rice and beans or potatoes of some sort. For dinner I’ll have chicken with rice and a salad on the side. For my night cravings I’ll have peanut butter crackers and Always herbal tea with lemon before bed.
What is your training schedule like and how do you split your workouts?
(AISHA) I have a crazy schedule so every week would be different but I try not to go 3 days in a row without working out
