Mama said there would be days like this…. “I don’t want to do this anymore. This is too hard. This takes too much effort.” In those moments, I want you to look at your goals. Remember the goals we wrote out in the beginning of the program? I want you to ask yourself, “Are these goals still important to me?” If the answer is “YES” then stop whining and complaining and keep going.:))) Remember, in order to achieve our goals, we must work hard!!!
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. Right now I love ZUMBA! So much so that I got certified to teach it. Come and take it with me:) 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 or 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: Quitting is the Enemy to Success!!!
If you even ‘think’ about quitting, then you have already quit. It’s so easy to quit. It takes so much more character and a strong will to persevere. Dig deep in your soul and remind yourself that you are worth fighting for. It’s not too hard, too difficult, too painful, too (fill in the blank)…You are worth it and you deserve to live the life you were designed to have. Be proactive about your health and wellness…It’s the only one you have:)))
Have a beautiful day! I love you guys and I’m rooting for you:)
