Day 25 of January Detox Challenge!

Day 25

It’s been a great start of the year so far.  Many people on the detox challenge have gotten back on track and are enjoying clean eating.  Now that we have the right tools to eat better, we’re getting ready to give you the tools to get fit in about fifteen minutes a day!  You don’t have to work out longer and harder, you just have to work out smarter:)))  This new fitness challenge will begin on Monday, February 4th!  In addition to the fitness videos that you will be accountable to do, we will have a relationship challenge where you will get daily inspiration on how to be a better partner:)))  Spaces are limited…:)))

1) Thursday- Yoga Day!
Keep doing yoga!  It’s good for you:)))
Do these sun salutations every morning.  Start with a few and work your way up.  It will get the blood flowing, help with your back issues, and tones the body!

 

2) Food- Combine Your Food
The trick to staying satiated is to make sure you are combining your protein, carbs and good fat. Forget about the high protein diets.  It’s all about balance and being smart about what foods you’re combining.  Try these combinations:)))

 

3) Mantra for the Day- One Day at a Time!
I say this all the time and it’s a good reminder.  All we have is right now.  Stay in the moment and do your best today.  Don’t get anxious about what the future holds.  Many of my clients fear gaining weight back, not being able to keep the new lifestyle change, not being able to have time to work out, yada, yada….Look, just take today, do your best to eat right, stay active and be kind.  That’s it! You can do it:))))

 

Love you guys and I’m rooting for you:)  XOXO!

 

Day 24 of January Detox Challenge!

Day 24

How’s it going?  I hope you’re doing well and staying plugged in.  Some of you have detoxed your bodies so much that when you cheat, your body feels it!  That’s a good sign.  That means the detox is working and your body is rejecting all the unhealthy food!  Keep your system clean and pure.  If you do blow it, get right back to eating clean and drink tons of water.  For the month of January, we have focused a lot on your diet.  Next month, we will be focusing on FITNESS and relationships.  I hope you can join us!  We would love to have you:)))  You can register and sign up here…

 

 

 

 

1) Wednesday- Upper Body!  Focus- ARMS!

 

2) Food- Yummy Green Drink!  This looks amazing!!!

 

3) Mantra for the Day-Peace
Overall health and wellness goes way beyond the number on the scale.  It all begins deep within.  How you feel about yourself is a direct reflection of how you treat yourself.  I spent so many years dealing with the outward appearance and for some reason I continued to fail and sabotage my progress.  Deep down I didn’t really feel like I deserved to be happy, healthy and whole.  I often struggled with other people’s victories and thought that could never happen for me.  Once I started changing the tapes in my head and stopped listening to the negative voices, I started to believe that I could change.  I started to believe that I could make lifestyle changes that would last.  I started to believe that I could feel great and be fit and happy.  I had to make peace with myself.  In reality, it took me reconciling a lot of my issues with God and trusting that He created me and designed me to be happy and healthy. I had to let go of fear and do a lot of soul searching.  The past few years have been an amazing time for me.  The transformation I’ve made in my life transcends the scale.  Stay connected to the journey.  God is not finished with you yet.

 

Love you guys and I’m rooting for you:)  XOXO!

 

Day 23 of January Detox Challenge Group!

Day 23

We are nearing the end of this month’s challenge.  Think about all that you have accomplished this month!  What a way to start the year.  Even if you’re not where you want to be, you have tools to get you there.  You know how to properly detox and clean out your system, you know how to eat clean food, and you know how to stay active!  Look at all that you have accomplished so far.  I’m so proud of you guys!  Next month, our focus will be fitness and relationships.  Wellness is a balance of our mind, body and spirit.  I’m so excited about taking our relationships to the next level and really going after being the best partner we can be!!!  Let’s keep learning:)))

 

 

 

1) Tuesday- Power Cardio!  HIIT Training!

 

2) Food- Super Breakfast Food!!!

 

3) Mantra for the Day- Don’t let one bad day get you down….
I used to feel horrible if I had a bad day, I would just throw in the towel and give up.  I would often say, “Oh well, I guess I’ll have to start over on Monday, or next month, or next year!!!”  How ridiculous is that thinking!?!?  We have the ability to start over every minute of the day.  If you blow it, and guess what!?  You will:)))  You can just start over right then and there:)  You can do it!!!  Don’t give in.  XOXO:)))

Love you guys and I’m rooting for you:)  XOXO!

There was a time where we almost separated and we we’re on our way to being a statistic.

1) Monday!  Work the lower body!

 

2) Food- Pre-Workout Meals!

 

3) Mantra for the Day- Energy flows to where your attention goes…
We’ve heard this before.  It’s so true.  What we focus on, we get more of.  What are you thinking about?  Do you think about how hard it is to lose weight, change your habits, avoid temptation, etc…????  Or do you focus on the lifestyle change of not being overweight, being able to enjoy healthy food, getting off medication and being able to keep up with your children, fitting in to your favorite jeans!?!?!  Change your thoughts, change your focus, and change your life!!!:))))

Day 20 & 21 of January Detox Challenge!

Day 20 & 21!

Happy weekend!  Enjoy some down time with friends and family.  Remember to plan ahead for the following week.  When you fail to plan, you plan to fail.  Plan to succeed!

 

 

1) Saturday – Do something active with friends and/or family.  It’s always better to workout with someone:)))  Find a workout buddy!  Dogs make a great workout partner!

 

Sunday- Relax and rejuvenate:)))

 

 

2) Food- Clean Mocha!
Learn to make “clean” treats:)  Just because you’re eating clean doesn’t mean you have to deprive yourself.  Make this mocha!  Yummmmmm:))))

 

3) Mantra for the Day- This Too, Shall Pass!
This is a great mantra!  I have used it often in my life:)  In our fitness journey, we will have times of victory and times of defeat.  Remember that nothing is permanent.  We have the choice to change every single day, every moment, and remember that every new breath is a new opportunity.

 

 

Love you guys and I’m rooting for you:))) XOXO!!!

Day 19 of January Detox Challenge!

Day 19!

How’s it going???  Don’t get weary.  We’re here for the long haul.  Dig deep and start again.  You have to get sick and tired of being sick and tired.  In order for true change to happen, you must be willing to push through when it’s uncomfortable.  You must be willing to do what others are not.  You have to keep your focus.  What did you do today to get you closer to your goals?  It’s not too late.  Keep going!!!

1) Friday- CORE
Let’s get that CORE strong!  Here’s how:)))

What if we spent more time focused on this “core”????  How would our life be different?
OK..let’s work on both:)))  Focus on the inside and the outside:)))

 

2) Food- Buy Organic Whenever Possible!
Now that I’ve been juicing like a mad woman, I’m hyper vigilant about washing my produce in Kangen water.  It’s alkaline water with many levels.  I wash my produce in 11.5 to make sure I get all the pesticides and e-coli bacteria out.  I used to just rinse my produce under the faucet.  Now, I make sure I soak it and wash it thoroughly. Here’s some pictures of the produce I washed today.  Check out our facebook page for pictures and video:)


 

3) Mantra for the Day- One Day at a Time:)
I couldn’t have said it better…..enjoy the journey!!!

 

 

Love you guys and I’m rooting for you:))) XOXO!!!

Day 18 of January Detox Challenge!

Day 18!

After talking to some of you guys, it seems like we have hit a bump in our journey.  Some of us, myself included have slipped up and have enjoyed too many cheat days:)  It’s OK.  Don’t beat yourself up.  It’s time to shake it off and move forward.  The key is not to let the bad days turn into weeks, months and eventually years!  Everyday is a new day:))))

1) Thursday Yoga/Pilates/Stretch
After hitting it hard this week, take some time to stretch your body and give it some TLC:)  Try these stretches and poses….

 

2) Food- Super food of the day: Quinoa

3) Mantra for the Day- Turn Intentions into ACTIONS!
If I did everything I THOUGHT about doing, I would be soooooo productive;) LOL!  Our intentions are so important but the proof is in the follow through.  Have integrity and do what you say you’re going to do.  If you say to yourself, “I will work out in the morning.”  Then do it!  Keep your word.  It’s tough and sometimes we want to give in to our emotions.  Stay strong.  Success comes to those who are willing to do the work!

 

Love you guys and I’m rooting for you:))) XOXO!!!

Day 17 of January Detox Challenge!

Day 17!

You guys are doing such an awesome job.  I love how determined and intentional you are about this challenge.  This is what it’s going to take to get you to the next level and to stay connected.  Once we slack off, it gets easier to fall back on our old habits.  Keep looking ahead and keep your eye on the goal!!!

1) Wednesday- HIIT and Arms!
We’ve been doing a lot of HIIT training in class.  This is a great way to burn fat and build muscle.

 

2) Food- Try these Juicing Recipes!

3) Mantra for the Day- KEEP GOING!!!

We live in the world of the “We want it now” generation!!!  We want everything at microwave speed and we’re not willing to wait for it.  Health and fitness is NOT something that will happen overnight.  Unless you have a good plastic surgeon, getting healthy the right way takes time.  Know that you WILL see results with every good choice and every good workout.  Keep going!  Don’t give up:))))

 

Love you guys and I’m rooting for you:)))

Day 15 & 16 of January Detox Challenge!

Day 15 & 16!

Hope you had a great weekend!  I celebrated my bday over the weekend and had loads of fun with family and food:)  I need to get back on track.  Remember, every day is a new day and a new beginning:)))

1) Food-  I started blending my drinks.  Juicing was getting way too expensive!  I’m going to do both.  It’s going really well.  I’m addicted:)))

 

 

2)  Workout- Work your lower body.  Legs, booty, and abs!  Go for an all around strength training routine too.  Try these:)

 

 

 

 

3) Mantra for the Day: Enjoy the Little Things!
Don’t forget to stop and enjoy the little things.  I’ve had the incredible opportunity to have family over the last few days.  I was off my normal routine, schedule, workouts, and eating habits.  Guess what!?!?!  I survived:))))  In the past, I would have been more concerned about staying on task than enjoying my family.  We’re in this thing for a lifetime.  I realized that I would never get this time back so enjoy it!  I hope you’re doing the same.

Love you guys!!!  I’m rooting for you:)  XOXO!!!

Day 12, 13 & 14 of January Detox Challenge!

Day 12, 13 & 14!

Sorry I’m behind.  We’ve had some unexpected events happen this week and it kind of took me out of the loop.  It’s also my birthday weekend and have been hosting family from out of town.  Anyway, I hope you are doing well and staying on course:)

1) Food-  Here are some more juicing recipes!  I can’t live without my juice!:)

 

 

2)  Workout- Do something active with people you love.  So grateful to have our So Cal weather back.  I know, we’re spoiled;)  But take advantage and have fun!

Don’t forget to relax and take a rest day.  Take it easy and give your body a chance to rest.

 

 

 

3) Mantra for the Day:  Showing up is Half the Battle!!

I tell my class this almost daily.  Showing up is half the battle!  Once you get there, you will do the work.  You can make all the excuses you want but once you get there, even begrudgingly, then you have overcome!  Show up and do the work.  Don’t think about it. Don’t negotiate!  There will always be other things that are more important than working out.  If you don’t put it in your schedule, other things will crowd it out.  You don’t even need a lot of time.  Just use your time wisely and be all in when you’re there.  Now, SHOW UP and SHAPE UP!!!

 

Love you guys!!!  I’m rooting for you:)  XOXO!!!
