Little info before you go to bed? ☺️

Our bodies don’t normally gain or lose significant amounts of fat or muscle overnight. Instead, when the scale shows a gain or loss of half pound or more from the previous -day, the cause is instead likely to be the amount of water your body is retaining. 
Causes of water weight?:
1. Table Salt 
2. Alcohol 
3. Menstrual Cycles (which is unavoidable) 

The main reason? Dieting!!! 
Dieting, restricting the body from necessary calories causes it to breakdown carbohydrates and proteins stores that hold water. Then when you return to normal, it won’t break the food down, instead water weight will increase—this means A CONSISTENT BLOATED BELLY. 

Instead…change your nutrition intake if you are trying to change your body. 

Pray. Train. Eat. Sleep. In whatever order you’d like ❤️❤️💪

Hi hi!

I don’t show my clients much because it’s their right to privacy in their journey! I asked my favorite couple in the world if I could post their lifts today because I was so proud!

They came to me and told me they would love to train together but didn’t know anything about strength training! Now they both say “I just want to get stronger and stronger!”

It excites me when clients want strength. Aesthetics come naturally when you work towards strength goals! Focus on things like good form, range of motion, depth, etc. and you will look better!

I’m proud today of all of my clients who work their tails off! It’s not me…I’m there to teach…but it’s you who shows up and puts in the work! :)

I love all of you! ❤️

Ultimately…I want to be an all around athlete. Ultimately…I want to be an unstoppable machine.
Split squats on trx with 35lb dumbells. An engaged core is key, strong quads and my goal for bigger shoulders played a huge part!

Try it and let me know how it is! 💪💪 (at www.emariefitness.com)

((I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” …
I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.))

Water Erica vs. Pop Erica! 
Sometimes I miss pop…I don’t miss the skin or wight that came with it, though! I was over weight and very active in the gym for about two years before I cleaned my entire diet all the way up! 👆

I am behind/catching up on emails BUT www.emariefitness.com has active meal plans that you can read about and order through the site! Please visit and expect weekly updates 😏

I yelled “diet is more important than the gym” to one of my clients today and almost got kicked out of my work place. 😂

Hey…I don’t just say whatever comes to my mind! If I say it…whatever it is… I truly mean it 😘💪

#beablessing and help the first person you come into contact with tomorrow to smile 💪

Goodnight 💗 (at www.emariefitness.com)
