Sunday- REST DAY! Don’t underestimate the value of having a rest day.  Unplug and unwind.  Prepare your body for the coming week and enjoy doing absolutely nothing!

2.  Food- Weekends tend do be the hardest time to stay on track.  If you haven’t heard of myfitnesspal.com you have to sign up today!  Its FREE and so easy to use.  They have an app that you can use right on your phone.  It will track your calories, exercises and even scan food items to let you know if you are within your limits.  It’s a real handy tool.  Use it when you’re out at dinner.  You would be surprised at how much bigger the meal portions are at restaurants!  Some meals are 1500 calories per plate!!!  Hmmmm…and we wonder why there’s an obesity epidemic!

3. Mantra for the day: “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit.”– Aristotle

This is such an awesome quote!  Our daily habits are what will bring us success.  I know that sometimes life can be a little boring, we can get sick of eating the same things or doing the same exercises but as you’re working little by little everyday you are inching your way closer to your goals.  You may not be where you want to be yet, but at least you’re not where you started!  Enjoy the journey.  Don’t get so impatient and freak out when you’re not seeing results.  Do the work daily and you will get there.

Day 10 of 60 Day Challenge!!!

Day 10!

Wow!  That went fast!  Just remember, it took small steps of eating unhealthy and not exercising to get you where you are, it’s going to take small steps of eating well and exercising to get you where you want to be!  If you’re consistent and keep it up, you will be at your goal before you know it!

 

1) Thursday- Yoga Day!!!  Take this time to commit to your yoga practice.  Even if you don’t like yoga, do it just a little at a time.  Start with fifteen minutes and work your way up.  Yoga is an acquired taste!  You will learn to love it in due time:)))

 

 

2) Sugar Fact #2- Sugar promotes inflammation. Inflammation, which is part of the immune response, is not always a bad thing. But eating sugar foods can fuel excessive, inappropriate inflammation that serves no useful purpose and actually promotes aging and disease. Cutting back on sugary foods will help you avoid excess inflammation.

 

3) Mantra for the Day! FOCUS!
If we focus daily on what we are trying to accomplish, we will be successful.  If you start looking at all the things you have to give up or do then it’s easy to get overwhelmed!  Just start where you are and keep it simple.  Follow the food plan, exercise, and set you mind to do it everyday.  That’s it.  You can do this:)))

 

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