Posted by nikkikeat24 – Woke up this morning and this was heavy on my heart! Last night as I was going to bed I prayed for strength and confidence as well as much more but I woke up this morning and said to myself…you are enough! You always have been and your Father loves you just the way you are! So this morning I feel like I needed to tell YOU…yes YOU…the one who is reading this message and looking at this picture that you are enough! You are perfect just the way you are! You DON’T have to change who you are so someone else can accept you, YOU have to love yourself and remember always that YOU ARE ENOUGH, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL! Sending love and positive thoughts your way today! Make today an amazing day and don’t forget to smile! #motivation #morningmotivation #goals #godsplan #goodmorning #healthylifestyle #healthyandhappy #myfitlife #fitnurse #nurse #nurseeats #nurselife #weightloss #weightlosstips #weightwatchers #weightlossjourney #cleaneating #beautiful #happy #happylife #noexcuses #nevergiveup #neversettle #newyearnewme

Muscle vs Fat  
10lb of muscle at rest will burn 50 calories per day whilst 10lb of fat will only burn 20 calories. Therefore building muscle will speed up your metabolism and help reduce the fat content of your body – no, fat does not turn into muscle, it is replaced by muscle. Also muscle does not weigh more than fat. 1lb of muscle in the same as 1lb of fat, it is just denser helping to create a more svelte shape.

So, weight loss and fat loss are not necessarily the same thing. Weight loss is very easy to accomplish. All you have to do is take in less calories than what your body burns on any given day. So if your body burns 2,500 calories, and you just take in 2,000 calories, weight loss will occur. The problem is that if those calories that you take in do not have the right amount of nutrients, the weight loss may come in the form of muscle tissue loss, water weight, and perhaps even some bone mass!


It is an unfortunate aspect of nature that for most people, as we age, body fat reduction occurs at a slower rate(but see anti-ageing strategies). However, don’t be discouraged but rather set realistic goals including following a balanced nutrition plan, keeping up regular exercise and most importantly include muscle building/retaining activities.
