ok so basically I decided to make a get fit masterpost wich is gonna include diet/healthy eating tips, workout tips, inspiration and so on. I’ve been wanting to get fit for so long but somehow ive never fully finished my goal because of my lack of motivation and ideas on what i can do next because doing the same thing all the time gets boring in the end. I’m not a professional but I’ve been working out for over a year and I take health classes so i know some basic information.
I allow myself to have one day where i can eat sweets or “unhealthy” food without it ruining my goal, just don’t overdo it, and if you have cravings and you still wanna keep your diet you can cut up some carrots and cucumber, celery or some other fruit/vegetables you’d like, nuts is also a good choice to eat as a snack.
PS drink lots of water!!
Healthy food eating tips:
If you wanna loose weight or get fit it’s important to watch what you eat because its not only about the calories you burn during workouts its also what you decide to put in your body that makes the whole picture.
Healthy breakfast tips:
Most of us have school or work to go to wich means its gonna be early mornings where’s its easier to grab a cup of coffee then leave, therefore it’s important to make sure you have something fast you can eat for breakfast. I know a lot of people think “breakfast being the most important meal” is overrated but its true because what you start your day with has a lot to say on your energy and concentration during the day.
you should make sure you have something quick you can eat during your stressful mornings.
fruits is a simple yet good choice for a fast breakfast, you can either mix some of your favorite fruits in a bowl or in a yoghurt. I prefer eating an avocado or cut up a banana to put in my cereal.
and if you’re one of those who takes yourself good times in the morning you can make oatmeal (it should be a recipe on how to make oatmeal on the pagage of it if you’ve never made it.) an omelet, scrambled eggs or healthy pancakes.

healthy lunch tips
If you’re in a rush in the mornings like I am you should make your lunch the night before so you can grab it and go.
Chicken salad ( my own recipe ayyy)
1 chicken filet
1/2 salad head
1 portion healthy pasta (im norwegian idk what its called in english)
roast your chicken in oil ( oil is healthier than roasting it in butter)
when it’s done you just cut it in pieces like you want it ( make sure its not bloody in side it means its not done)
you can cut the vegetables like you want yourself and when you’re done mix the vegetables, the pasta and the chicken together in a bowl and put plastic over it and put it in the fridge.
you have more than one lunch in this recipe so you can take it to lunch for 2 days or make it a dinner too.

after workout its important you eat foods with proteins unless you drink protein shakes or eat protein bars.
food that includes proteins that it’s easy for you to make or find in your supermarkets are eggs, cottage cheese ( i cut up fruits like apples, bananas, oranges and mix it with cottage cheese), oatmeal, nuts, chicken, fish, yoghurt and other dairy products, broccoli, spinach.
personal workout schedule
5 minutes fast walking to warm up my body, 10 minutes with jogging, 5 minutes intervals ( run as fast as you can for 30 secounds, rest for 30 seconds and do this 4 times since you’ve just begun, the more your body is used to work out the more you can add like i do it for 8 times in a row now)
20x3 fast knees
40 secounds plank x 2
and as i said the more you work out the more you can add on so this is a good start and you know with yourself how much your body can take and don’t give in just because it hurts because you’re gonna feel so good about yourself knowing you pushed yourself alright :)
here’s some other workout tips for strenght
