👣 take it one step at a time
😩 dieting and weight loss can be over whelming
🤯 especially with all conflicting, do this, do that, eat this and don’t eat that mumbo jumbo
👍🏼 one thing is for sure, and that is you are going to have to make some changes to your habits if you want to make real weight loss progress
🤔 but changing everything all at once is hard so it will need to be done in small steps over time.
👌🏼 here’s a 30 day habit changing plan for weight loss
✅ days 1-10 focus reducing the amount of processed foods you consume and increase the amount of whole foods
✅ days 10-20 focus on increasing protein intake through lean meats, eggs, fish and whey supplements
✅ days 20-30+ download a calorie tracker such at ‘my fitness pal’ and start to track how many calories you are consuming a day to ensure you are consistently in a calorie deficit
🤘🏼try it and see how you get on.
😊 in 30 days time you won’t even be thinking about your old eating habits
🔥 the fire that burns the slowest lasts the longest
Errybody fast now. seems like intermittent fastings the new thang lately . definitely helps with metabolism and o***n function and over time f*t loss. but did you know it’s major plus lies in your 🧠 health?
💡 the shock of fasting leads the brain to create new cells.
💡this coaxes neurons to grow, helping the brain become more resistant to effects of protein plaques which are the underlying catalysts for alzheimer’s and prevents the damage inflicted by parkinson’s.
💡creation of bdnf an important protein (think miracle gro for the brain) which helps you to be more resilient to stress and adaptable to change (brain cell production,protection,stimulation) it boosts mood, improves memory and learning capacity. . 💡boosts hgh (human growth hormone) levels in a good way ☺️. hgh produced in the body has powerful 💥 anti-aging, brain protection and regeneration and cognitive (understanding) as well as longevity benefits. 🙌🏼⚡️so intermittent fasting basically gives your body a rest from food breakdown and distribution(which takes the majority of the energy to do) and instead shuttles the energy to repair and rebuild. 💡if stimulates the growth of new mitochondria (power sources for the brain that turn your food into energy⚡️). so waiting a few extra hours for the slice🍕 or the cheeseburger 🍔 can actually add years to your life. who knew? 🤷🏻♀️
🐝😖😔🐝 did you know #morganfreeman converted his 124-acre ranch into a bee sanctuary to save them? he tends to them without a suit, bc he "resonates with them." who is better than him?👑💎no one.
🐝 @respectanimalrights - why are bees so important?
1. bees pollinate 80% of flowering plants on earth
2. one single bee colony can pollinate 300 million flowers each day
3. bee pollination helps to provide nourishing habits for animals like birds and other insects
4. bees are major contributors the floral landscapes that we know & love in nature
5. bees pollinate 70 of the top 100 human food crops
6. 1 in 3 bites of food we eat is derived from plants pollinated by bees
7. bees pollinate about 75% of fruits, nuts, & vegetables grown in the us.
8. almonds are totally dependent on bee pollination. no bees, no almonds
9. avocados, apples, & cherries are over 90% dependent on bee pollination
10. cucumbers, kiwis, & melon are majorly dependent on bee pollination
modern day agriculture is killing the bees. they’re dying from pesticides used in the crops they pollinate daily, & the chemical industry has spent millions on pr to deny the link between the use of pesticides and the deaths of our bees
companies care more about pollution and poisons than saving lives that do more for us than man-made toxins such as pesticides.
if bees die, we’re all going to die. there used to be 6 million bee hives in the us. now there’s less than 3 million. honey is also one of the most natural & nutritious foods existing. without honey bees, there will be no honey.
bees have existed on earth for 100 million years. we’ve been here for 200,000 years and we’ve already managed to wipe out so many species on this planet? we aren’t benefiting this place. we need to save the bees 🙏🏼🐝 if we don’t, everything will die.
📙introducing my new children's book "we do that, too" available on amazon, ebooks, barnes & noble & more! this is a story about a little boy who befriends another little boy with 2 dads and quickly realizes their families aren't so different. this was inspired by my own life experiences and i wanted something to help in the explanation of same s*x parents to children whether it's because they have family or friends who are or have same s*x parents or maybe just to help explain a reality they will eventually encounter. as adults and parents we often over or under think how to explain things to children but their minds are more simplistic yet astute than we realize. "we do that, too" is a simple, tasteful & appropriate piece of literature with bright colorful pictures and an emphasis on family and love. i hope you'll find this to be entertaining, educational and to the point. the characters are based off people in my life as well as some of what goes on. it's been amazing to see it come to life. thank you to all my supporters and a huge thank you to joseph michael saponaro for without you none of this would have been possible, and i hope sooner rather than later we're reading it to our little one! enjoy all! #wedothattoobook#authorbillysapz#childrensbooks#authorsofinstagram#writersofinstagram#children#samesexmarriage#samesexparents#gayparents#adoption#kidsbook#kidsbookstagram#marriageequality#families#loveislove#hrc#books#read#readersofinstagram#literature#makeachange
