Man, this time change is kicking my butt! I need my hour back! Wahhh!!! OK…I’m done whining. I hope you guys are doing well and staying strong. One day at a time. Remember, it’s a marathon not a sprint! I’m so proud of you guys! I can’t believe we’re halfway there!!!
1. Tuesday- Cardio Day! Question of the day.
Question: “What is the best workout?”
Answer: “The one that you will do!” Seriously, not everyone is going to benefit from one specific workout. You have to find the workout that you WANT to do. What inspires you? What is fun? What challenges you and motivates you? There are workouts that I absolutely love and I want everyone to do it because I LOVE it so much! For instance, Yoga! I love yoga and I bring friends to classes all the time. I have some friends that loved it and some that hated it with a passion. It’s OK. Keep trying and you will find the workout that will be your passion. Let me know what your favorite workout is:)
2. Food- Super food of the day! – Green Smoothies:)
Ever since I saw the documentary, “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead” I have been drinking my greens. I have consumed more fruits and vegetables in the last six months than I have in the last three years! I’m not exaggerating. I also have my husband drinking my green potion. That makes me so happy because I know he’s getting his nutrients and vitamins. He’s also lost ten pounds just adding one shake to his diet.
Here’s my green smoothie recipe: (in a blender)
1/4 cup blueberries
1/4 cup strawberries
1 cup spinach
1 cup kale
1 cup almond milk
water to thicken or thin
one scoop of vanilla protein powder -(optional)
It’s soooooo good! This makes about three 16oz servings.
3. Mantra for the Day: Look for Progress, not Perfection!!!
So many times we have an unrealistic view of what we want our fitness goals to be. We work out really hard for two weeks and wonder why we’re not on the cover of the new Sports Illustrated magazine! LOL! Seriously, it takes time to make a lifestyle change. What I love about this program is that we are teaching people lifestyle habits that they can use forever. This is not a quick fix to get in your dress kind of diet. The measure of progress goes beyond the scale. How are you feeling? Do your clothes feel better? Can you run, bike, walk, workout longer? Are you feeling stronger? Are you making better choices? Let’s measure the things that are important. How’s your heart? Are you kind? Are you patient? Do you have self control? These virtues are so much more important than having a six pack! Keep on going. Keep making progress everyday. Before you know it, you will be at your healthy goal weight !!!
I love you guys and I’m rooting for you!!!
