Be a Beauty and a Beast at the Gym!
Who says you need to be glamorous and cutesy all the time? Sure, one of my favorite Disney movies of all time is Beauty and the Beast, but that isn't to say that you need to be a pretty little bookworm all the time! When I get in the mood to workout or exercise, I know that I need to go in hard or I won't do it at all. Sometimes you need to let go of all the insecurities and worries and let your inner "Beast" shine through!
There are plenty of adorable gym outfits you can wear too to make yourself feel your best as you are exercising. Make sure to wear light and comfortable gym shorts and a tank top to really push yourself to the fullest. If you are doing some sort of dance workout, you should wear a comfortable bra and one that is supportive enough to support your breasts while you are jumping around. Unless you choose to do a low intensity dance workout like Country Heat in which you don't need anything but a good pair of running shoes because you won't be jumping around as much as you will be swaying your hips from side to side all the while burning a ton of calories.
One of the funny things about these films is that you rarely see any of the main characters eating. You have that epic scene where Belle is invited to "be their guest" and tons of desserts and pastries dance past her but I don't think she takes even one bite of any of them! What a shame! As a kid, I was so annoyed that she didn't. I guess they assume that Disney princesses don't eat much! Well, in order to get the body of your dreams, you NEED to eat, but just in moderation. One of the best ways to make sure you are eating enough for your ideal body type.
Don't eat for the body you have, but rather for the body you want. One of the ways you can make sure you are eating the right types of foods is to use different meal planning methods and the colored 21 day fix container sizes to watch your portion control and learn about what is the right amount of vegetables, fruits, proteins and more importantly, carbohydrates to eat in one day. Most people eat bundles of pasta or cereal each day when really one serving is around half of a cup and you only need about 2-4 servings a day. Using the 21 day fix containers to track your food and calorie intake will keep you on the right path and accelerate your weight loss. And by doing so, you'll be both a Beauty and a Beast!
