BeckermanWellness

We decided to launch #BeckermanWellness  to open up the conversation about health, fitness and body positivity. Also specifically what we have learned about ourselves and our body and mind along the way of our weight loss journey. 
Since the 2020 Quarantine, we have made a special effort to focus on our health and fitness... here's some tips!

In our IGTV video we chat about our weight loss tips, hacks for if you are feeling low and our favourite snacks. We wanted to keep this light and fun. Also, just as a side note, we are not health professionals, but we have gone through this journey in a healthy way.

1.Weight loss Tips: have a goal!

If you have a dress or something that is small or that u want to wear in the future. Have it as your goal "dress" or your goal pants.
Not drinking or eating when you know you are sad or feeling weird. Feeling your emotions
-Intermittent fasting. Not eating after dinner time. Letting everything digest until the morning.
-Apple watch: Using the Apple watch as a positive motivator to hit your steps. We try to get to 10,000 steps a day. And hitting our MOVE goal on our apple watch.
-Peloton bike- Doing classes and working out.
-Or you can walk outside or go on hikes.
or walk on the spot while watching your fav shows at night.
-Tracking your weight with free weight tracker App on your phone once a week to keep track of it.
-Meditation apps like peloton app (don't need a bike), sleep app, Calm app
 -Getting the Flo app or Apple cycle tracking so you know when you are getting your period and know when you are emotional. 

2.Hacks for if you are feeling low!

-Go for a walk and put on your fav music. Music is healing. Listening to music and zoning out. Until you feel a roar in your belly of fierceness. Release those endorphins because music is healing. Have a workout mix or a chill mix you  can put on to cheer you up.
-Call a friend or text a friend who always cheers you up and just talk about all your feelings. Talking about your feelings good and bad is both positive. Just talking about how you are feeling is really great.
-Start a hobby or do something you enjoy like tie dye or needlepoint or something you always wanted to try 
-Feeding your mind with positive thoughts and not with unhealthy foods. But it is important to enjoy yourselves when you are happy. Try to balance your emotions.
