This was my first day and I will be testing again on Day 15. I’ll keep you posted:) This was done on one minute intervals and the program is done is three minute intervals! Please pray for me!!! I am totally Insane for doing this!!!
1) Thursday- Yoga Day! Aside from my normal routine, I will be adding Insanity to the mix. So, for everyone else stay on the program and do Yoga:))) Or not…whatever you decide, do something that you enjoy:)))
2) Sugar Fact of the Day! My detox is officially over! Woo hoo!!!! I did it and I feel fabulous!!! I did have a little bit of fruit in my smoothie yesterday since I needed the extra carbs. I am more convinced now that sugar is from the devil!!! LOL! I don’t want to go back to the crappy sugar. I’ll have fruit and maybe an occasional frozen yogurt but that’s it! How about you? Are you ready to take the Sugar Detox challenge???
3) Mantra for the Day- What’s your Transformation Story?
I’ve had my moments of being chubby and thin. I am really excited because for the first time, I feel like all my cylinders are working together. I am eating well and exercising at my peak performance. In the past, I couldn’t get it together. Either I worked out a ton and ate like crap or I ate really well and didn’t work out. Also, my mental game was not on straight. My motives were not pure and because I wasn’t obese, I didn’t really feel the urgency to get fit. I knew my body well enough that if I needed to lose a few pounds I could. Well, the yo-yo dieting took a toll on my body and now I struggle with thyroid issues, gluten sensitivity and sugar addiction. I really have to be super careful and eat healthy because I HAVE to, not just because I WANT to. I think the biggest thing I’ve learned so far on this journey, is to be yourself. So much of my struggle came from looking at other women and comparing myself. My standards we’re not realistic. So I learned to be patient and OK with myself. I had to surrender the idea that as a forty two mother of three I wasn’t going to look like a woman in her twenties. I don’t mind it because I’m actually in way better shape now than I’ve ever been! So, be patient. Surrender your expectations and enjoy the journey. It’s not going to be perfect everyday. Be OK with it!
