Day 22 of Spring Clean Challenge!

Day 22

Well, I went to the Doctor and sadly I had a miscarriage over the weekend.  We were not very far along.  Initially, we thought we were already at 12 weeks but the ultrasound only showed 6 weeks.  I’m grateful that I didn’t experience a lot of pain.  I’m doing well and getting my energy back.  Thank you for all the well wishes and enthusiasm for my pregnancy.  Unfortunately, it’s not meant to be right now.  I have never had a miscarriage and it definitely helps me to have more compassion on others.  I’m thankful to be surrounded by such amazing friends and family.  I feel very blessed.

 

 

1.  Tuesday- Cardio day.  Go for a walk, run, hike, bike ride, swim, dance class, etc….
Whatever you end up doing, just move that booty!!!:))))

 

 

2.  Food- Clean Eating List!
I’m happy to report that kangaroo is on the list! LOL:)))  This list must be from Australia:)

 

 

3. Mantra for the day:  Surrender
Surrender and faith go hand in hand.  Being a Christian, it’s a given that I want God’s will for my life.  I’ve been living my life by faith.  The kind of faith that makes my knees shake and puts knots in my belly.  I love to conquer my fears and do crazy things that I would never do.  Now, my prayers have been, “God let me walk through every door you want me to walk through and close every door that I’m not supposed to walk through.”  Walking indicates ACTION!  I will keep moving until the door shuts.  Then I will move again in another direction until it’s clear that I need to go another way.  It has been such an amazing ride.  It gives me such security and I don’t have to second guess myself because I truly trust that God is leading my life.  So, even with going through a devastating miscarriage, I truly feel surrendered to God’s will and I feel a lot of peace.  I think it’s a blessing to be able to relate and comfort another person who has gone through the same experience.  I know I’ve been comforted by people who have wished me well and have been through it too.  Surrender is a beautiful thing.  It totally takes the pressure off of trying to be in control of everything.  I did that for a long time and believe me, I do not want to go back to that!  Thanks for letting me vent.  I think it helps to just get it out.  I’m feeling good physically.  Maybe it will hit me later but I’m not sad.  I’m resolved that this is how it’s supposed to be.  I will focus on what I do have and that’s a loving, amazing, encouraging, supportive, husband and three healthy, vibrant, funny, smart, loving kids.  I am surrounded by people who love me.  I am truly blessed.  I am humbled and amazed by the blessings.  Thank you:))))

 

 

Love you guys and I’m rooting for you!!!  XOXO:)))

 

 

 

Day 22 of 60 Day Challenge!!!

Day 22!

I hope you are enjoying your day so far!  You will have good days and bad days.  That’s just life!  Give yourself permission to blow it and know that you have the strength to get back up and try again.  The goal is to blow it less and less.  You will realize that you don’t want all your hard work to go to waste so you will try harder to stay on track:)  Keep going!!!

 

1)  Tuesday- Cardio Day!  Get your heart rate up and go get sweaty!!!

 

2) Day 5 of Insanity! -I started with Pure Cardio first thing in the morning before breakfast.  Well, I thought that was a good idea at the time! LOL!  I only made it to 28 minutes. I was done!  I was drenched in sweat and making lots of interesting noises and groans.  I was screaming at Shaun T. and was not thinking warm and fuzzy thoughts about him!  I hate quitting and I was so mad but I knew I had to pace myself because I was teaching three classes that day.  I ended up teaching an abbreviated version of Insanity in my classes and even though I was getting evil stares from my clients, I think they secretly loved it!!!  I definitely am addicted to this intense workout!  I even dream about it at night!  On Sunday I took a rest day but I wanted to do a workout so bad. My husband wouldn’t let me.:)  So, tomorrow I will conquer Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs.  I can’t wait!

 

3)  Mantra for the Day- Keep your eye on the goal!!!

My mentor and coach Dani Johnson always says, “In order for something to be dynamic it has to be specific!”  If we aim for nothing, we get it every time.  We MUST have a GOAL!!!  Right now, my goal is to finish the 60 Day Insanity Training program.  I want to be stronger and I want very defined muscles.  I want to cut my body fat percentage about 4-5%.  I want to continue to challenge myself and grow in my fitness abilities.  So, what about you???  What are your goals?  We would love to help you more specifically.  When you join our 30 Day Challenge group you are held accountable to your goals and are given daily steps on how to achieve them.  We have a nutritionist on board that gives us meal plans and recipes as well as sending you workout videos to help you cut out all excuses.  The program is customized to meet your needs from your own home anywhere in the world!!!  Join us today!!!
