How did Khloé Kardashian get her #revengebody? With her 10 step fitness plan. Get inspired – and then steal it!
You have to start somewhere. My best piece of advice is to remind ourselves that we all have to start somewhere. I also love that someone once told me you can’t achieve your perfect body in one day. I remember when I started working out, I was so frustrated that I didn’t have this body in the first week. It takes dedication and literal sweat and tears.
Prepare to be dedicated. I love my shape because I’ve earned every curve. I work hard in the gym to get it. But I also loved my shape before, when I was even curvier. I was always incredibly comfortable in my skin. Everybody else saw me in a different way, but I didn’t see myself that way. Today I put in the work to get
the curves I have and every bit of firmness. I feel empowered
and badass that I was able to accomplish everything I have.
Compare yourself. The way your body looks is the #1 best way to tell that you’re moving forward. Taking progress pics of yourself about every four weeks will allow you to see how your body is changing over time. Nothing is more motivating and rewarding than when you compare your pics and see the payoff. So get busy, my selfie sistas – the camera never lies.
Have a goal. I always say you should set realistic goals because then you don’t get discouraged. Do something, and then set a new goal from there. I don’t believe in a quick fix. I believe in lifestyle changes, and when you think of something long term, you do it better. But hard work pays off – mind, body and soul. It’s a lifestyle, especially when I still love to treat myself with my favourite foods – but that’s
Don’t be intimidated. Beginners, or people who are new to training of any kind, often have fears that have
the potential to hold them back from achieving their goals. Intimidation is a huge factor. When walking into a gym, beginners often feel intimidated. Like they’re the skinniest or fattest person there, or that they’re too weak. Use this as your motivation.
Start slowly. After a year and a half of working with Gunnar (Khloé’s trainer), he set me up with his nutritionist. I did baby steps. I cut out sodas, then I went dairy-free for two weeks and I lost 11lb. Then I gave up dairy completely – I only drink almond milk now – and that totally changed my body. It’s hard for me because I love cheese, but if I want to lose weight quickly, dairy-free is the way to go. It’s not even a diet any more.
Have a balanced diet. Sticking with a regular workout routine definitely affects my diet. When I’m mindful about exercising, I’m mindful about the fuel I’m putting in my body. And I find that when I work out in the morning, I want to make better eating choices for the rest of the day. My biggest mistake when I’m busy is that I tend to skip breakfast and end up starving or bingeing on fast food. I like a banana and almond butter for breakfast, a protein shake after my workout, Chinese chicken salad for lunch, and steamed veggies and chicken for dinner.
