I was at the gym with some of my girlfriends. We were having a great time, working out, sweating and laughing. The conversation turned to one of my recent Instagram posts.
My younger sister Tiffany had put on some old 90’s prom dresses we found and started dancing around like a dainty ballerina. SIde note: if you're not following me on Instagram, you should! But only if you have a sense of humor because we do some funny stuff; @TheBrandiClark.
Anyway, so I posted this picture of my sister and it was hilarious! My friend mentions that her husband, once he saw the post, said “Those girls just have good genes.” A nice compliment geared toward “those girls: meaning my sisters and I.
But, for whatever reason I immediately thinks he is talking about the other sisters, and not me.
You see, I have always been heavy. My sisters, all tall, skinny blondes, and I am the thicker...
If your experiencing struggles with weight loss and wonder why weight loss seems to be so difficult for some people and so easy for others. I have some insight that may just keep you on track:
Consistency is the very first thing that weight loss comes down to. If you are trying to lose weight, even five or ten pounds, and you see on social media is people posting before and after pictures it seems for them weight loss is coming so easy. That's not necessarily the case! They are having the same struggles that you might be having, the same urges and the same scheduling problems with work and kids; But the only thing that they have done differently is they stay consistent.
Accountability is the most important part of weight loss. You need someone who will be there to hold your hand and guide you through this process. And guess what? This person CANNOT be your bestie, your husband or your sister. Why?...

One of the most commonly asked questions I get from people is whether they should do cardio first or lift first?
Now, before I answer that question I need to explain a few things…
First, there are 3 different types of exercise. Anything you do, be it running a marathon, spinning or weight training, will always fall into one of 3 categories.
Category 1 - Steady State
The first type of exercise is called steady state. Anytime you are running, spinning or doing something for longer durations of time you are participating in a steady state exercise. You’ll know you’re in steady state cardio when you can carry on a conversation. Steady state cardio is usually between 30-60 minutes. In steady state cardio both you heart rate and your metabolism increase.
At the end of the exercise session your heart rate will decrease, however your metabolism stays up for additional 15 minutes....
If you stepped on the scale this morning after a weekend of food and fun, you may have been shocked by what you saw.
You gained 3 pounds this weekend!
But, did you really?
In this quick video I explain what it actually takes to gain those 3 pounds and how you probably DIDN'T REALLY add 3 pounds of fat to your body.
Raise your hand if your guilty of this...
You wake up in the morning feeling like P-Diddy...Wait, what? LOL . Ok, I'll start over. You wake up feeling great! You slept really well, your hair is on point, your lashes are amazing, your tummy feels flat and your booty is bangin'! You decide to step on the scale. I mean, your feeling so good you must be down at least 5 pound, right? Nope! The scale screams back at you a number that is 3 pounds higher than you expected. Your just a Fatty Mcbutterpants, you will always be a Fatty Mcbutterpants and now the whole day is ruined. Screw everything you might as well throw on your stretchy pants and get some ice cream because you can't lose weight anyway...
Can you relate?
Don't worry, I am so guilty of this very thing too.
However, I have some good news for you today, so go ahead and put down the spoon because I am about to change your life.
