Happy Halloween!!! I confess, last year I took my children’s candy away and instead of getting rid of it, I ate it!!! I gained six pounds from Halloween to New Years! Not this year!!! I’m gonna stay strong, how about you!?!? Stick with me during this challenge and we will not be part of the statistics. Did you know that the average American will gain seven pounds during this time of the year??? Getting rid of those extra pounds was a lot harder than I expected and so not worth it!!! You are stronger and tougher than you think. You have come so far on this program and you are doing awesome. Don’t give in. Change your attitude and you change your course. Be strong and keep working hard!
1. Wednsday- Cardio for 30 minutes and 30 minutes of upper body strength training.
2. Food- Don’t look at this clean eating as a death sentence. Don’t look at people around you who are eating fries, cakes and cokes with those big puppy dog eyes and feel bad that you can’t have any. Look at this journey as a way of life and re-train your taste buds to enjoy real food. If it has a momma and it came from the earth then you can eat it. If it was made in a lab, you should be cautious. Real food is so much more satisfying and fulfilling. All the other frankenfoods might taste good initially but it will numb out your senses. Lets get back to real food shall we!?!?!
3. Mantra for the day: There is power in visualization.
Are you using the power of visualization in your life? In your quiet time take some time to visualize how you want your life to look. Take some time to envision what it would be like to run after your kids at the park without being in pain or being winded. How would it feel to be able to shop at certain stores and wear certain clothes? If you can see it, you can achieve it. Keep pictures up in a special place that motivate you. Keep a pair of jeans or a dress that you want to fit into. Strive everyday to move towards your goal. There is also a powerful motivating tool to show you what you’re fighting against. Look at this picture the next time you want to reach for that unhealthy option. Bon apetit!!!
Have a beautiful day! I love you guys and I’m rooting for you☺
