How did the first day go for you? I felt great!!! I taught a couple of classes and ate really well. My problem is that I’ll get so busy that I’ll miss meals, then by the time I eat I’m so hungry I’ll overeat. I have to do a better job planning my snacks. So this challenge isn’t just a weight loss challenge, it’s just a good accountability tool for us to get back on track. Some people even do the challenge to gain weight so don’t let the word ‘detox’ scare you:) Let’s support each other on this journey!
1. Tuesday- Stretch and do some cardio today. Whatever type of cardio you end up doing make sure you enjoy it! There’s so many different types of cardio workout. Find one that fits you and your life. Make it a point to do abs and push ups too. You don’t need equipment or a gym membership. Just drop and give me 20!!!:)))
2. Food- Eating clean is a way of life. It’s not some sort of fad or gimmick. Back in the day, it was a lot easier to eat ‘clean’. Now it’s nearly impossible. Everything that is available to us is pre packaged and fake food. When I travel internationally, it’s so amazing to see how people eat. Our family went out to a village in the Philippines and we ate fish that was caught right then and there and fruit right from the tree. It was so awesome!!! It takes a lot of effort to eat well now a days! I hope you are excited about going back to the basics and eating food our grandparents use to eat:)))
3. Mantra of the Day: Desire or Duty?
What is your motivation??? I was listening to a speaker today and he was talking about the difference between desire and duty. It really got me thinking. If we do things out of duty then we can end up being resentful and not follow through. We look at the tasks as a list of do’s and dont’s. If we do things because we have a genuine desire to accomplish a goal, then we will have the integrity and the character to follow through even when no one is watching. Only we know where we’re at. Only we know what’s in our heart. So, as you continue on this journey, check your heart. Find out why you’re doing this. This will determine whether or not you will be able to finish it. Good luck!!! I’m rooting for you:)))
