“The Real’s” Adrienne Houghton, 36, is using the most of her time while quarantined during the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Friday, Houghton opened up about her fitness journey, revealing that she has lost 20 lbs.!
Along with posting a video of her wearing a black bikini, she wrote on Instagram, “During this time more than ever... Staying healthy is at the top of my mind! This is my first post in a bathing suit since losing 20lbs. Now... I've lost weight before but always gained it back... because I was dieting & not changing my lifestyle!"
"But not this time... It's been a year since I 'had enough' (have you ever gotten there? Where you're just tired of complaining about what you don't like & you're finally ready to take action & REALLY make changes!)” Adrienne added.
As for what has helped her drop the weight, Houghton stressed the importance of a plant-based diet. She explained, “Well, I made major changes like choosing to eat plant based changing my whole relationship with food & working out! I've been consistent with my self discipline (although it's been so hard at times). I'm constantly reminding myself that the greatest form of self love - is self discipline!"
Houghton wrapped up her post with more diet secrets. She said, “They say it takes 21 days to form a new habit... I just want to encourage you to take this time to develop healthy habits! Drink your water, squat, rest, read, pray, take your vitamins, eat your veggies! (Preaching to myself to keep going! Lol.) It's a new month! Let's do this! BESOS Xx.”
Before her big reveal, Adrienne discussed her fitness goals on her YouTube channel “All Things Adrienne.” She shared, “I legit at the top of the summer, looked at myself in the mirror and I was just like, ‘What are the things that I want to change?’ And one of those things was I want to be healthy—and I don't want to go on a diet. I want this to be a lifestyle."
“For me, personally, this wasn't just like a body makeover, it was mind, body and soul,” Adrienne emphasized.
