How’s it going? It’s Thanksgiving week! I’m really excited about all the amazing victories we’re going to have this week! Congratulate yourself for your commitment, investment, and hard work during this challenge. This is not easy. As you can see, when you work hard and follow the plan, you will see changes. I applaud you guys!!! If you’re not seeing changes yet, don’t worry. It will happen. This takes time and even though you may not see results yet, you will….I promise:)))
1. Tuesday- Cardio day! Try some of these quick bursts of cardio you can do anywhere. Do them thirty minutes at a time for two sets. If you don’t have the time to do it consecutively, no worries. Squeeze it in, but make it happen!!!
2. Food- I’ve been asked the question, “What do I do when my friends and family wants to eat at a restaurant where I cannot resist temptation??? Help!!!”
Well, this is a tough one for all of us, myself included. Early in our journey, our muscles of self control are still being developed. So, going out with friends for food and drinks will definitely be a challenge. Here are some tips: Try to look at the menu ahead of time so you can be prepared with what to order or eat beforehand. Maybe you can suggest to meet up for drinks or desserts. Try to stick to fruit or yogurt and seltzer water. I know it seems really boring and not fun. I get it!!! For me, I’m trying to change the way I spend time with people. Instead of going out to eat, I suggest a hike, bike ride or a yoga class. I love being active with my friends and family. You can also host a dinner party where you can be in control of what’s on the menu. No matter what you decide, go in to the situation prepared. That will be half the battle. Good luck!!!
3. Mantra for the Day! -Change the Tapes!!!
OK..I know we’ve been talking about this a lot but it bears repeating. Let’s stop the voices in our head and replace it with faithful, positive thoughts. Here’s a great exercise. Write down what you really think about this journey. Every time a negative thought comes up, write it down. When you are done, look at your paper and cross out the negative thoughts and replace it. Here’s an example of what it looks like.
Love you guys!!! I’m rooting for you:)))
