Don’t know where to start with your fitness journey? Wondering how to turn none healthy looking food to be healthy.
Do you think about wanting to start working out, but you’re not sure what is the best approach?
You might feel worried or nervous when you think about training because how is this time going to be different than the last?
You feel like you have the motivation to start training, but then the kids’ home school is in the way.
If this is you, I HEAR you and I GET you and do not want you to feel alone. I hear this very often from Moms, especially right now because home school and maybe in-person school is confusing as well.
Here are some of my best ways to get started:
Just do ONE workout. Go to my YouTube Channel (Karina Rabin). You will find some of the videos that are for beginners and don’t require any equipment. You can stream the workout for 5 min just to get you going and warmed up. By doing this, I guarantee that you will feel a huge sense of accomplishment.
You can use this to motivate yourself to another workout later in the week. Once you know you can finish that workout, the worry will go away.
I created these monthly challenges for beginners to inspire you to move a few minutes per day and to ease you into it.
Challenge yourself by stepping out of your comfort zone and doing something you haven’t done before. You can do these workouts from the comfort of your own home. I promise you that if you feel like you messed up NO one will know.
Set small goals every week. For example, decide that this week you won’t eat another cookie or you won’t have carbs past 4 pm.
Focus on adding healthy habits into your life rather than taking things away or being restrictive by eating super low carbs. I EAT carbs and so should you. Unless you’re on Keto but trust me, a busy mom like me and having a glass of wine than KETO isn’t working!

It is possible to turn none healthy looking food to be healthy. The following are suggestions on how to.
Nachos are processed, high in sodium, high in fat.
Instead, you can have chicken, over baked sweet potato, sprinkled with cheese not smothered.
Use 6 oz of chicken and 2 sweet potatoes. It’s all about portion control.
Plus champagne, which is not a list but life is good, and why not celebrate our blessings.
Instead of orange juice, which is too much sugar. I drop a dot of Mio Energy 0 calories and gives every day.
Chicken stuffed with cream cheese, bell pepper, mushrooms and wrapped in turkey bacon.

Helpful tip: since some of you didn’t tip that scale last week. Check out in your app how much Sodium you are taking in.
For example, drinking V8 juice might sound healthy. If it’s not the low sodium kind then it may not be a healthy choice. One serving provides over a quarter of the recommended daily allowance of sodium. Some of the spicy varieties of V8 juice contain even more salt.
Drinking this 1 a day can be the reason why you’re not tipping the scale. Try to remove it for 1 week or any other high sodium food and see what happens.
