Hello my name is Ren

Hi my name is Ren. I like long walks with my dogs, stomping on crunchy leaves, and eating popcorn. My spirit animal is the squirrel, my Myers-Briggs personality is INFJ, and I use this blog to post things that make me feel good or think hard. Healthy mind + Healthy Body = Happy Life.
Jillian Michael’s Top 10 Tips to Stay Slim For LifeBy Nicole German (RD, LD)
1. Keep a food journal consistently for 2 weeks. This will bring key food calories to your attention and get you started on a good routine.2. Discriminate—don’t eliminate your foods. Deprivation diets never work. Jillian suggest substituting in a food that leaves you feeling fuller longer that is comparable to the food you would have been craving. Avoid chemicals in foods as well.3. Do not skip meals, but also do not graze all day long. Jillian suggests eating a snack or meal every four hours. Grazing all day can lead to overconsumption, but skipping can slow the metabolism or leave you feeling overly hungry.4. Follow the 80/20 rule. 80 percent healthy. 20 percent wiggle room.5. It doesn’t matter what time you exercise as long as you are staying consistent.6. Get in a bigger calorie burn in a short period of time, by trying high intensity interval training (HIIT).7. Get your back. Jillians suggests supporting yourself, be your own friend, and treat yourself to plenty of non-food options like a massage. This helps to avoid food indulgences!8. Build a kitchen toolbox. This means having food storage containers, measuring cups, a food scale, steamer, and herbs ready to go. Without the essentials, we are not setting up ourselves for successful home eating.9. Bring your workout with you when you travel. Plan to bring a DVD, exercise bands, and/or workout clothes. Plan what your workout will be.10. Be high maintenance when dining out. Ask for sauces on the side, or an extra vegetable option. Ask how the food is prepared. You have a right to know if you are going to be healthy!
