How to Take Progress Pics

No matter where you are in your fitness journey or what shape you’re in, I STRONGLY encourage you to take progress pictures.  Not only do they keep you in check, but they are also very motivating…they either motivate you to work harder when you don’t notice improvement, OR they motivate and increase your momentum when you recognize the awesome results you’re achieving!

I recommend taking them on a monthly basis.  Bi-weekly works too, but just make sure you are patient and don’t get discouraged if you don’t see a huge difference.  Results take time.

Here’s how to take progress pics:

FRONT – stand tall with feet together, flex everything, smile
SIDE – stand tall, flex abs, lift arms up and out of the way
BACK – stand tall with feet together, shoulders back, flex arms

Stay consistent as possible with time of day, lighting, posture, your outfit, and even hair (up vs down can make you look differently).

Some other ways to measure progress:

  • weigh yourself on a scale
  • compare how your clothes fit
  • calculate your BMI or body fat %
  • measure areas of your body (ie: biceps, waist, hips, thighs)

It’s effective to use more than one way to measure your progress.  I can’t emphasize enough how the bodyweight scale should NOT be your main determiner, as there are so many factors that go into how much you weigh.  You will also fluctuate each day depending on what you ate, how much water your body is holding, how much you sweat, etc.

Alright, friends – the month just started, so take your progress pics today and see what your body is capable of in a month!  And if you’re looking for some extra support with an online fitness program, let’s connect.

My Saje Wellness Haul

20160505_174113-01.jpeg

Picked up some new products from Saje recently and absolutely LOVE them.  All of the smells make me feel relaxed and happy, I just love breathing them in.

Goddess Natural Fragrance Roll-on Perfume
Consists of: sweet florals, uplifting citruses and rich vanilla.
Purpose: to connect us with our femininity, to uplift the spirits and to instill feelings of love, happiness and even euphoria.
My Review: It’s a nice light scent, not too overpowering.  If you like a stronger scent, you may need to reapply but I will happy with the strength.  And yes, it does make me feel a bit of euphoria 🙂

Goddess Euphoric Mist
Consists of: ylang yang, neroli essential oil, jasmine, and rose.
Purpose: helps balance hormones, instills feelings of peace and harmony, encourages feelings of confidence, and comforts the heart.
My Review: Similar to the Goddess roll-on above, and nice to use on my pillowcase.  I don’t see myself using this a lot but it a nice, happy scent.

Sweet Things Euphoric Body Lotion
Consists of: jasmine, rose, and sandalwood.
Purpose: same as Euphoric Mist but sweeter 🙂
My Review: Absolutely love this body lotion!  It’s light, spreads well, smells beautiful and moisturizes very well.  It consists of essential oils but does not leave your skin excessively oily, just nicely hydrated!

Muscle Melt Comforting Mango & Shea Body Butter
Consists of: sweet birch, lavender, rosemary, eucalyptus, and roman chamomile.
Purpose: help soothe and relax overworked, stiff and tired muscles while nourishing and hydrating your skin.
My Review: This body butter is very moisturizing but I’d recommend only using it before bed.  It’s very thick and the scent is stronger than the body lotion above.  It does a nice job at moisturizing, just a bit heavy/sticky for going out with.

Kiss Mint Breath Freshener
Consists of: spearmint, peppermint, and fennel.
Purpose: to freshen breath and revitalize the senses.
My Review: This breath freshener is great!  It’s not overly strong and shocking like Listerine or those other brands.  It’s very gentle yet does the job.  There are two different mint flavours, so you can choose based on personal preference.

Hope this helps with your next Saje shopping experience!  As I was getting these links for you, I noticed a few more items I’m already planning to get on my next visit…like the Sunshine Smoothie body scrub and some essential oil blends for my diffuser.

What are your favourite Saje products?
