You are doing AWESOME! You should be so proud of yourself! It’s a marathon not a sprint. So, take your time. One day at a time.
1. Thursday- Yoga, pilates, or any type of workout that incorporates lots of stretching and working on your flexibility. Especially the older we get, stretching is vital to our program to help keep us limber and to help prevent injuries. (Check the member page for videos)
2. Enjoy your meals. When you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Take the time to sort out your food and snacks into single servings. This might seem like a pain in the butt but it will pay off. Especially when your day is busy and you have to drive kids all over town, it seems easier to go to the drive thru when you are starving and you have starving kids yelling for food. Pack snacks for them too. You will save money and feel great that you are giving your family healthy options.
3. Mantra for the day: You are beautiful!!!
Thank you for loving yourself enough to take care of yourself and invest the time and energy on your health. If your motivation is because you hate your thighs, your belly, arms, etc….your energy and focus will be on the negative and you will get more of what you focus on. Think about how grateful you are for the body that you were created to have. You are strong, powerful, beautiful beings. Your body is your ally, not your enemy. Be kind to your body and your body will be kind to you. Here’s a great exercise for you to do today…
Go to the mirror and really look at yourself and say, “Thank you for being there and loving me unconditionally, even when I am not kind and say hurtful things you are still here and haven’t given up on me. I vow to treat you better and vow to speak kind words to you and about you. Please forgive me for hurting you and being ungrateful…I am transforming!!!!” Really mean it…decide today to stop the cycle of self hate. You are amazing and beautiful and I’m so honored to know you.
I love you guys and I’m rooting for you!
