Day 8 of Clean Eating Challenge!

Day 8

You are amazing and you should be so proud of yourself.  By now, you should be enjoying the physical activity and eating clean should give you lots of energy!  Keep it up!  One day at a time.  You should also be pretty regular by now…if you know what I mean;))) LOL!

1.  Monday- Stretch and do 30 min of solid cardio followed by another 30 min of lower body workouts. Stretch your body and breathe!

2.  You should have your weekly meals planned and ready to go.
(For my private coaching clients, I sent the new weekly menu!)
Don’t forget to have BREAKFAST!  You’ve heard it before, it’s the most important meal of the day.  Here’s some ideas…

***Tip- set your alerts on your phone to go off every 3 hours as a reminder to eat!
Buy from your clean eating grocery list!  Take the guess work out of shopping and planning!!!

 

3.  Mantra for the day:  Success is Not Convenient! 
When you don’t want to work out… Success is not convenient!  When you don’t want to prep your food…. Success is not convenient!  When you don’t feel like eating clean… Success is not convenient!  Anytime you have to do something that you don’t want to do ask yourself, ‘Is this going to help me be successful?’  SUCCESS IS NOT CONVENIENT.  You’ll be inconvenienced for a little while but the rewards are worth it!!!  Don’t quit!  Be determined to reach your goals.  You owe it to yourself!

1. Friday- Core Day!  Abs, abs, abs:)))  Can someone tell me when we started getting an obsession with six packs???  I understand it when it comes to men but when did women think six packs were attractive?  Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been trying to get a six pack for forty four years now:)))  I’m just wondering when the trend began.  Anyway, here’s my take on it.
#1. Genetics- there are people born with it. Period!
#2. Exercise and clean eating will reveal what’s underneath that layer of fat.

 

No matter where you’re at, don’t judge your progress by whether or not you can do laundry on your mid section.  XOXO!!!

 

 

 

Can someone just buy this for me?  Maybe we can find it on Ebay:)))  Much easier than working out right!? :)

2. Food-  Try to make breakfast your biggest meal.  I remember a time when I would get up and drink about four cups of coffee and not eat until about 2pm.  Yeah, very unhealthy!  I can’t believe I functioned that way for many years.  Then at about 4pm when I hit my wall, I would drink a few more cups of coffee. I finally gave up my coffee habit.  I only drink it on occasion when I want to not because I need to.  Big difference!  Now I make my green juice and it gives me real energy.  I crave it when I don’t drink it.  So, whatever you put in your body, you will crave.  Why not make it the good stuff!?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3.  Mantra for the Day:  This is My Moment!
Why not take advantage of this moment?  What are you waiting for?  Lately,  there has been intense situations going on personally.  Friends and family with life threatening illnesses, friends losing loved ones, families being ripped apart.  Life happens.  At this time of your life, ask yourself if you are taking advantage of every opportunity?  Are you seizing the day?  This will not happen by wishing and hoping things will work out.  How are you actively pursuing your goals?  As it pertains to fitness, ask yourself if your actions or lack of action is taking you closer to your goals.  It’s a decision.  You are either going to live your life by design or by default.  So take this moment…don’t wait another day….stop procrastinating and take action.  Every day do something to actively go after your dreams.  Stay consistent. Remember, you got this! Every little step leads to a shift and then momentum snowballs!

Day 4 Spring Clean Challenge!

Day 4

1. Friday- Core Day!  Abs, abs, abs:)))  Can someone please tell me when the obsession with six packs happened???  I understand it when it comes to men but when did women think six packs were attractive?  Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been trying to get a six pack for forty three years now:)))  I’m just wondering when the trend began.  Anyway, here’s my take on it.


#1. Genetics- there are people born with it. Period!
#2. Cardio, lifting, HIIT training, clean eating, and pure hard work will reveal what’s underneath that layer of fat.

No matter where you’re at, don’t judge your progress by whether or not you can do laundry on your mid section.  XOXO!!!

Lucky for me, I won’t have to worry about six pack abs for a while…my abs will look like this:))))

Because of this….
Yup!!!!  Baby #4 is on the way.  I’m excited to blog about the pregnancy/fitness journey.  This is the first pregnancy that I will be consistently working out.  Stay tuned…..

3. Mantra for the Day:  What am I doing to achieve my goals????

In order for this challenge to work, you MUST work.  This challenge works when you follow directions.  When you’re feeling frustrated and mad that things aren’t changing, you must ask yourself…”What am I doing different?”  If the answer is “Nothing!” then don’t be surprised when nothing changes.  We are going to attack our goals this session.  We are going to write it down and break it down to small manageable pieces.  So if you want to lose ten pounds this session, then aim to lose 2.5 pounds per week.  How will that happen?  Cardio, eating clean, weight training, cut out refined sugars, fat, processed food, etc….It will take work.  Every step towards your goal will get you there.  So don’t get frustrated. Keep your head in the game and let’s do this one day at a time.  This is a marathon, not a sprint:)))

Here’s a great example of breaking down your goals …..

Have a fabulous day!  I’m rooting for you:)))
