We have 28 days to go! Time sure is flying! Take a moment to connect and thank your self for going on this journey of healing and transformation. It’s such a beautiful experience for me to watch amazing women start to take care of themselves and begin to understand the importance of self care. You have all been such an inspiration to me. I thank you for allowing me to be a witness.
1. Saturday- Cardio fun day for the whole family. Go for a walk, run, hike, bike ride, skate, etc…whatever it is, incorporate the whole family or friends in your workout. This is a great time to build memories and teach your kids by modeling a healthy, active lifestyle. I’m so encouraged that some of you on the team have started working out with your spouses! That is awesome!!!
2. Food- Know your battles. Know your triggers. One of my triggers is not seeing food go to waste. I’m a human vacuum cleaner and often eat food off my kid’s plates and even off the floor! Funny story, my son was trying to pull a prank on his sister. He replaced the white filling in the Oreo with toothpaste and put it on the floor. I walked by, picked it up and ate it!!! I was surprised to taste the mint since I knew I bought the double stuffed Oreos!!! My family was rolling on the floor! Serves me right! LOL ! So, what are your triggers? Half the battle is knowing what you’re fighting against. I seriously have to talk myself out of eating leftovers when putting dishes away. It’s from all the years of being programmed to eat everything off your plate because there’s starving children in Africa. I have to re-program my brain to just eat the food on my plate and let them be!
3. Mantra for the day: I am mentally tough!
You are mentally tough!!! The battle starts in our mind. If we doubt and give up mentally, then we are out of the game. Start to believe that you are strong and that you are finisher! Don’t be weak and be a quitter! You don’t have to finish pretty, or perfectly, or gracefully, JUST FINISH!!! This journey is an exercise in character. Look at all the things you have overcome in your life up until this point. This is just one area that you will be able to look back on and say, YES..I FINISHED!!! You can and you will. I believe in you! You ROCK!!!
Have a beautiful day! I love you guys and I’m rooting for you:)
