Day 6 & 7 of January Detox Challenge!

Day 6 & 7

You guys made it through the first week of the challenge!!!  The weekend is here and this is where it can be a little tricky.  Make sure you plan carefully and be mindful.  If you’re going to be out with the kids all day driving them to soccer, and dance, and band, etc…you need to have good snacks in your purse in case of emergency.  We tend to give in and cave in when we are not prepared.  Trust me, I’ve done it!!!

 

1) Saturday & Sunday
Use Saturday to be a day to do activities that involve other people.  Go on a hike, bike ride, skating, or walk together as a family or with friends.  Enjoy:)

Sunday is normally a rest day.  Take the time to replenish your body and re-group for the up coming week.

 

 

2) Food- Day 6
Another yummy juice recipe!!!

 

3) Mantra for the day:

We are only six days in and you guys are already experiencing great results!!!  I’m so excited for you!  Remember to stay the course and don’t get complacent.  This is a marathon not a sprint.  Take each day as it comes and enjoy the journey!

 

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

 

Day 1 of January Detox Challenge!

Happy Monday!
It’s a New Year and it’s time for a New You!!!  Just like many people during this time of year, we are making resolutions, writing down our goals, and making decisions to change and do things differently.  Well, I hope you’re ready for the detox!  We are going to retrain and recharge our taste buds:)))  Forget about what happened or didn’t happen in 2012!  It’s time to start new and make DAILY decisions to take steps towards your goal.  You got this!!!  If you signed up for the program, make sure you connect on the private page and keep plugged in.  The magic is in the community.  We were not meant to this alone.

 

1) Lower Body Workout- Make sure you stretch before and after and do some cardio to get your heart rate up.  Don’t be afraid of weights and work those squats and lunges.  Try some of these workouts.

Experiment and tell us how it came out:)))

3) Mantra for the day-  Actually I can….

I was thinking about how grateful and lucky I am to be doing what I get to do.  I have struggled with insecurities, quitting, fear, anxiety, you name it!  The voice that would badger me and criticize me was much louder than the gentle whisper of encouragement.  Once I started choosing which voice to listen to, I started to feel more confident, secure, faithful, and excited about my path.  During this journey, CHOOSE to listen to the voice that says, “YOU CAN DO IT!!!”  If you can’t hear that voice right now, then listen to me:)))  I’m here to be your biggest cheerleader.  I’m excited to be on this journey with you!

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

Day 82 of 90 Day Challenge!

Day 82!

Happy Friday!

We’re counting down the days.  Have you written out your goals for 2013?  The key to accomplishing your goals is to write it down and have a plan.  This is the best book on goal setting that I’ve used.  I love it.  Check it out.  Go out and get it.  Totally worth it!!!

 

 

1.  Friday- Stretch and do some tabata and CORE strengthening.

 

 

2. Food- Juice Recipe

Here are some more juicing recipes…

 

3. Mantra for the Day: If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you.

I definitely agree with this!  I say this in class all the time.  I love teaching my classes because my students are so game.  I come in with the craziest ideas sometimes and they always try it out.  Our workouts need to challenge us in order to change us.  But don’t let it stop on the physical aspect.  As you continue to grow in your faith, character, compassion, etc….you have to be willing to change.  Do something different.  Live life as an adventure.  Don’t play it safe.  Sometimes risks will pay off, sometimes they don’t.  It’s OK.  Learn from them.

 

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